Weigh In Wednesday....on Thursday

I'm late again. I was busy at work yesterday & then I went to Yoglates after work & when I got home I was tired. I gained a pound this week. It could be worse since it was my birthday weekend & Halloween. Hopefully, I'll be back on the losing bandwagon soon.

I've gone to Yoglates twice this week & I ran twice. Monday I did 3.1 miles & afterwards I had a sore leg. It hurt when I got up after sitting but once I walked around a little it felt ok. It got better everyday & I ran yesterday. I only ran 2 miles because it was starting to bother me.  I'm not happy about this development AT ALL. My first 5K is Saturday. I've been working so hard for 12 weeks. This HAS to be better by Saturday. It seems better today. I'm just hoping to be able to finish Saturday. I'm not worried about my time now.

A couple of weeks ago I jumped on the Erin Condren bandwagon.  Everyone in the blog world has been going crazy over her "life planners".  I saw some tweets about Zulily having a $50 gift certificate for $25 so I bought one. No way was I paying full price for the planner. There was also a code for $10 off which paid for almost all of the shipping.  I had a hard time deciding which one I wanted. They're all so cute.  I've tried  using the calendar on my iPhone & I just don't like it. I've always been a list maker so I think this will just work better for me. Judging by all the people buying these things I'm not alone. I was very excited Friday to get an email saying that my planner had shipped. I tracked it & it was to be delivered on Halloween. It wasn't. I didn't get it the next day either. The tracking info had suddenly not been updated after saying it was "out for delivery". Lovely. I called the  USPS yesterday. What a joke. Have I ever mentioned my extreme dislike for the USPS??  I had to call an 800 number & explain the situation & the guy said he would then contact the post office where my mail comes from & they would contact me. Surprisingly, the guy called me within a couple of hours. After explaining the situation to him & giving him my address 4 different times & telling him no it's not an apt. he said he'd have to talk to the carrier & call me back. Yeh, you guessed it. Never heard another word from him. Luckily when I got home it was there.
I love it! It's bigger than I thought (and a little heavy) but it will fit in my purse. It's thick & has a heavy duty cover & tabs for each month. There's room inside to make notes or lists in addition to the monthly calendars. If I can't stay organized with this it's a lost cause!
There was also a pack of these cute labels included. What a fun surprise! I think these would be really cute on a bottle of wine or any gift. There is also some great stationery on her website. I'm waiting for another gift certificate promotion to get some of that!!



  1. I'll have to check out that planner. It looks really cute, & I'm a sucker for organizing stuff, but you know that already don't you...LOL!

    I have to say that almost every single kid (young & not-so-young) were extremely polite here in our neighborhood. We had quite a few older kids (or maybe they were just big for their ages), & we had a great time bantering with them. Everyone had some kind of costume (The Blues Brothers were really cute), & they were all having fun.

  2. I love my EC planner. I was also using my iPhone calendar & it just wasn't cutting it for me. Writing things down & making lists is so much more helpful to me. Yes I could make a list in notes or the new reminders but it's just not be same as paper!

  3. Hi Traci, such a cute EC planner! I love mine, it's been so helpful, especially now with my Thirty One Gifts Business. I am glad that it is on the bigger side, more for me to write in!!!!
