lose big

someone out in blogland asked the question "where do you do it?" although most everyone else answered this a week or more ago... i'm just getting to it.

my office

i most often work in my suburban. you see, i have a bizarre little schedule. my youngest still must have a nap everyday. but he won't until around 1:45 or 2. well, the other three kiddos get out of school at 3. which totally ruins the boy's nap when i have to put him in the car to go. SO- what i do is load him up around 1:45 everyday, drive over to the school of my Xavier and Elizabeth. park under a tree (for shade).... i crochet/knit/spin (whatever i feel like that day) and he snoozes. when school is out, we drive across town to the other campus (where my oldest is). then drive home. arriving around 3:40, so my little one has had a nice 2 hour nap. see, i'm not crazy. a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do - naps are essential for 3 yr old little boys :)

OH.MY.GOSH. ya'll are not going to believe what i did. ready for this?
my town is doing a local version of "Biggest Loser". i applied. yes, i did.
i really really really really really really really really really hope they pick me. they are chosing 3 men and 3 women. the applications are due in by tomorrow. then they are going to do some interviews. i don't know the date they will be selecting the contestants. yes, there are prizes... but who cares! they are giving the 6 chosen a gym membership (with a personal trainer 3X/week), a "diet" from a local place---- woo hoo! what an opportunity!! keep your fingers crossed for me. i'll let you know when i do.
you should see the pictures i turned in with my app.... YIKES!
if i get chosen, i'll show you. if not, forget it

That is great you can find time out of the house to "do it." Congrats on applying to your local biggest loser. I hope you get it to. I have wanted to apply to the show, but can't imagine being away from my family for 4 months.

I spend btween 30-45 minutes 'doing it' in the car as well! It's the school thing.
Good luck with the contest! :)

Hey good look with your contest! I hope you win a spot, and then I hope you win again!

I do a lot of car knitting/crocheting as well. Lots and lots. My little one likes to crash on the way to picking up his siblings from school as well.

Good luck, I really hope you get chosen. We are doing a Biggest Loser challenge within our family, money is the payoff. It'd be nice if it came with the gym membership and a diet as well lol.

That is EXACTLY what I used to do. Otherwise he would not get a nap, and be really crabby and mess up everyone elses' day. And, I wouldn't get any time to 'do it', either. ;p People used to ask me if I wanted to car pool with them, and I'd say 'nope, I like it.' :)
