A food baby was conceived this weekend, we are excited to welcome this new addition to the Jacobs family.
We went over to the sissy’s house for tortilla soup (made with her new BlendTech), caesar salad and crescent rolls.
Dinner was followed by making delicious homemade ice cream for the second night in a row. No, this is not a 3d picture, I just have a long neck and wanted to jump out at you.
Those kids are definitely related to me. PS Billy, you need to work on your ‘silly’ face a little bit.
While we waited for our ice cream to be made we read stories and made poor Billy’s legs fall asleep. There was a whole couch not being used but it is way more fun to pile up on Billster
We really outdid ourselves with this one. We crumbled up Samoa’s to put in our ‘milkshake.’ I am telling you, if you come be my best friend in Utah I will make you food like this:)
Let’s talk about something..
I have definitely overdone it in the food area the past little while.
It is like I have tried to fill the void of losing running in my life with food.
I am not freaking out about the weight gain because honestly I needed a few lbs but I just don’t feel good.
Our bodies need nutrients and real foods and they get cranky when all we feed them is ice cream, hot dogs, burgers and sour patch kids. especially when I am 14 days away from RUNNING (hopefully) the Boston Marathon.
This week I am really going to focus in on eating foods that make me feel good. If I am sad about not being able to run then I will turn to other ways for dealing with my emotions like writing, talking to Billy, crying or taking a bubble bath.
I just wanted to talk about something that has been bugging me and telling other people about it helps me to be more accountable.
There is no use regretting our actions or kicking ourselves for something that is already done, all we can do is move forward and try our hardest to learn from our mistakes and try to better ourselves.
So, if you have had a bad weekend, week, month or year of poor eating/exercise habits let’s all start today to treat our bodies the healthiest way possible mmkay?!?! We are BEAUTIFUL, STRONG, TALENTED men and woman and our bodies deserve to be fueled with nutrient dense foods along with some delicious treats every now and then right?!?!
1. Have you ever made homemade ice cream?
-Oh yeah baby and when we were kids we would do the kind that you roll back and forth for an hour……good memories:)
2. What goals do you have for yourself this week?
-Drink more water, eat mis fruits and veggies more and take time each day to process my emotions instead of trying to mask them with a sugar/fried coating.
3. WHO IS GOING TO BE IN BOSTON FOR THE MARATHON!?!?! Anyone want to know my bib number so that you can track me along the way??? Billy will also be using my twitter account to update you if you want to follow me that way.
