Answers to Your Questions

Thanks again to everyone who visited my blog this week.  You love me.  You really love me.  Good thing too.  I needed some extra lovin's this week. 

Eventually I'll get around to thanking you all personally.  In the meantime, I thought I'd start by posting answers to the fun questions y'all left for me in your comments. 

About my SITS Day...

Angelica : Am I really the first one?  You asked the first question I am answering in this post (and linking to your blog.) So, yes.  Holla!

Everyday Kathy : Looks like the gals have turned me on to another great blog! How am I ever going to read all of them???  Well, you could just read mine.  (J/K!)  What I do is set aside Saturday mornings as my "blog reading time."  Cuppa-joe and my bloggy friends -- what a great way to start a weekend.  Friday night with a glass-o-vino works just fine too but that would make it sound like I'm a total loser sitting home alone while my hubby is out having fun playing poker.  Which would be true but, ya know.

Jenny: I wonder how people survive life without humor?    Beats the heck out of me.  They probably sit at home alone on Friday nights.

Cheryl D: Hey, can I have a swig of the champagne?  I'm just impressed by the use of "swig" and "champagne" in the same sentence.  Cheryl - you're my kind of gal!   And, yes. 

About being overwhelmed...

Louise | Italy:  Hey, Charlene, do you think if I went on laundry strike my husband might start buying ME some new clothes???  Oh my dear Louise, did you start drinking before we all got here?   Someone check the trash for empties!  Yeah, so um...good luck with that.  (LOL!)

Webb: Would I prefer that he did the shopping - absolutely. But does the vacuuming help? You betcha!  Well alrighty then.  Glad I was here to help.

Eat Smart, Age Smart: Have you become controlled by endless to-do lists? This is an excellent question!  Yes.  Yes it is.  That's why I asked it.  (Cheeky, I know.  I can't help myself.)

Christa TerryI see a mess, I clean it up. Shouldn't everyone do the same?   Well, I'm pretty sure the problem in my house is that we have magic messes which NO ONE else can see, except me.  I could place dirty dishes in the middle of the floor (never mind hidden far away in the kitchen sink) and everyone would just walk right past them.  Invisible, I tell you.  It's the best explanation I've come up with so far.

Kim:  Can you be my "adoptive" sister and let me call you when I am having those moments?  Yes, but only because you didn't say "adoptive mother." 

About P90X...

Elisa : So you are a P90X graduate?  Sure am.  No more blumpy butt!

Tiffany: I'm almost done too...did you follow the eating plan too?  Not really.  I was conscious about my diet but didn't follow the book persay.  Honestly, fitting in the 60+ min a day to exercise was consuming enough that I just couldn't wrap my mind around all those pages of eating instructions too.   On the plus side, I managed to keep the feed bag off my face, despite having started P90X in the thick of the holidays.

Kelly Daneen: So what do you do to maintain that new look?  I'm still exercising 3 - 4 times per week and keeping variety in the workouts: P90X, Tae Bo, treadmill, light weights, cardio cleaning of invisible dirt. With the exception of the last week or so, I've probably been more strict about the food than I was during the 90 days. Something about mental bandwidth.  I'm always more focused on either mega-fitness routine or eating super healthy.  Rarely can I get both of those completely in sync.  Personally, I'm okay with that.

Baby Sweetness: So what do you do after day 90 to keep the shape?   Just ask Kelly Daneen.  She knows all my secrets now.

About my life not making your butt look big...

Beauty Woome: Isn't it strange that our desire to change our behaviour in their respective heads becomes a statement we're making about them?  Strange but true my friend.  Strange but true.

About my blog...

Unfortunately, we ALL have that pile of invisible dirty laundry in the middle of the floor, even if we have pretty good help-mates. It's that defective Y chromosome.

Going on strike certainly won't work. They simply move our piles aside to put theirs more in the middle. So, if you are raising boys, the best gift you can give to your future daughter-in-law (and women, in general) is to make them take part in the management of the family home!

Happy week!

Thanks for answering my question and visiting my blog! :)

Love your blog.. I found you from SITS!!!

Kelly Deneen said...

LOL. You are hysterical. Your responses gave me a grin to start the day.

Thank you for answering my question. 3-4 days a week is doable for me to exercise -- this is generally my goal. And I appreciate knowing all of your secrets too!

And I like the asparagus pic too. ha!

Jenny said...

How clever of you to answer your questions this way! I really like this idea.

You are a gracious, lovely blogger.

I'm right there with you blog hopping with my latte on Saturday mornings! :-D I enjoyed reading your Q&A and may plan my own similar post in homage.

I'm glad SITS sent me to find you - I admire your humor and wit!
