Why I love my fuzzy dog...  
Sydney has still not gotten used to the idea that every night Mark & I spend about an hour or so doing our new workout video in the living room. It's kind of amusing to watch her as we're exercising because she'll get excited and start jumping around when we do jumping moves and will try to lick our faces when we're doing crunches. :) She's an incredibly cute dog and I know she loves to be included in everything we do, but it's sometimes hard to complete our workout with her always underfoot. :P

Speaking of which, our diet/exercise plan seems to be going really well. I don't know if I've lost any weight (I don't own a scale because I've never been concerned with my actual weight), but I definitely can feel a difference in how the weight that I do have is distributed. My clothes seem to fit me a little better and that can't be a bad thing. :)

Yesterday was my Mom's birthday so Mark & I took her to lunch at L'Uraku Restaurant. It was perfect since she loves the food there, the atmosphere is great, and the food isn't really heavy and calorie ladden. I was supposed to have taken her to NYC this weekend for her birthday, but we cancelled our trip after finding out that Millie was closing (she only wanted to go to see Kevin). :( I'm probably going to take her to Washington D.C. next year to use the credit that she now has with Delta since she's always wanted to see the Smithsonian. :)

Hope you all had a nice weekend... it went by altogether too fast for me. It seemed as if there wasn't even time for the internet this weekend (Gasp!) But looking back, I didn't really accomplish too much. :P I'm off to crawl into bed - hope you all have a nice evening.

Good luck with your diet/exercise plan! It's great that you've gotten Mark to join you. And Sydney, of course :)

Thank you! And it's so much better since Mark's decided to join me. Now we motivate each other to do the workout when the other is feeling tired. Glad to read that you're getting back in to it too. :)

ha ha.. Krystal is the same way when I do any sort of thing on the floor. (Although she is not wanting to lick my face, she wants to sit on me, lean on me...)

Haha! Pets, they're SO lovable - it's impossible to be upset with them! :)
ajayne on July 13th, 2004 07:31 am (UTC)
Yeah, it really is! Plus, I think that she thinks that whenever we are on the floor... her territory, we must want to spend time with her. :P

I love your icon!!! :D

So far the diet/exercise plan sounds like it's going well. :) You should be proud of yourself. :D

Happy belated birthday to your mom. I'm glad you all had a nice time together. :)

Thanks, Carrie! :)

And it's only week two of the workout plan, hopefully we won't burn ourselves out and not make it to the end. :P

And thank you for the birthday wishes for my Mom. It was so nice to spend the afternoon with her! :)

That icon is just the cutest!

Happy Birthday to your Mom - I'm glad that you guys had a nice time celebrating with her. It sounds like the exercise plan is going well, too.

Awww, thanks Amanda. :) I hadn't made a new icon in a while - and I felt like it this weekend so I made that one and a couple of Kevin ones. ;)

Thanks for the birthday wishes for my Mom. :) I wish we were in NYC celebrating, but I'm so glad we got to spend the day with her. :) And hopefully we'll both be able to make it to the end of our plan. :)

aawww how cute... Sydney wants to work out too! LOL Either that or she gets really excited cause she thinks you look silly. SYDNEY: " That's not how you are supose to dance". LOL
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on July 12th, 2004 11:22 pm (UTC)
Haha! :D It's probably a little bit of both! :D

Sydney doing workout together with you and Mark - that really sounds cute, wish I could watch it. :) I'm glad to hear that the diet seems to be going well. It's a nice feeling when the clothes seem to fit a little better, isn't it? To me, I like it. :) Belated happy birthday and all the best to your mom. Please, take care Sheri.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on July 12th, 2004 11:24 pm (UTC)
It's the BEST feeling to wear something that didn't fit well before and feel ten times better in it. :) And Sydney is so cute when she jumps around with us, I sometimes enjoy watching her more than the workout video. :) Thank you for the sweet birthday wishes for my Mom, Sabine. :) Take care and big *HUGS* to you and Lauser. :)

AWWWW what a cute icon! :) I am glad you and Mark are enjoying your diet/workout plans. Happy belated birthday to your mom.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on July 12th, 2004 11:30 pm (UTC)
Aww, thanks Laura! And I think Mark & I are enjoying this workout plan much more than we thought we would. Not only has it gotten us healthier, but we spend much more time together. :) And thanks so much for the sweet birthday wishes for my Mom! :)

That's too cute! So all three of you will be the healthy trio in six weeks! :D You are getting price of two for three! ;)

Which also reminds me I have to pay a visit to the gym! Haven't in two and half weeks...
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on July 12th, 2004 11:32 pm (UTC)
Heehee! :) Hopefully we'll all be healthier after this (all three of us). :) I was shocked that Mark actually agreed to this and that he's taken it as seriously as he has. :)

And you've been on vacation so you have a reason for being away. :)

That is way too funny about Sydney! I can see Mort doing the same thing! If anyone is on the floor, it is his territory! Could you send some of that work-out energy my way? I NEED IT! So does Mort! I must kick myself in gear!
Good luck with both your diets and routines, sounds like you are off to a good start!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on July 16th, 2004 01:22 am (UTC)
The floor is Sydney's territory too! :) And thanks for the good wishes on our diet / exercise plan. :) It's been two weeks and I think that with Mark joining me, it'll be much easier to complete the six week program. :) Hope your summer is going well! I miss you around here! :(
