Small Successes (Vol.6)


1. After 8 tries, I finally uploaded the video I posted for Wordless Wednesday!  It posted this morning.

2.  Survived a 11 hour car trip with 4 children and only one 30 minute stop.

3.  Enjoyed the heck out of my vacation with only minor guilt (showing itself in wild dreams about being married to Tony Horton, my P90X trainer) about abandoning my exercise regimen and healthy eating.   However, after 5 days of eating "love-cooked food" (read: butter and cheese), I noticed dark circles appearing under my eyes despite sleeping till 8:45 every morning.  I think that means my healthy diet was working (at least in the eye circle department). 


  1. AnonymousJuly 08, 2010 THAT why my circles are so dark!!

  2. Great week! Interesting about the dark circles. I had no idea that diary caused these. Now I do.
    Happy Summer!

  3. I don't know if it's dairy, but it's not been the light fare I've been eating. We'll see what happens when I get back to my normal diet- whole grains and the like.

  4. Wow! 11 hours and only 1 30minute stop? That's impressive!

  5. Oooh... goodness gracious, do you do P90X?? I'm thinking about starting. I hear it's killer. I think I'll go for P90 first and work up to P90X. Have you done a full post or review about it? (I guess I can look in your archives)... inquiring minds want to know!

    Congrats on a great week!

    (lol... a lot of Marys read your blog!)

  6. wow 11 hours! Looks like it was worth it though1

  7. The 11 hour car trip is no small feat. I'm not sure I could have survived that journey with only one stop.
