Good morning loves!! I had quite the random night….let’s talk about it:)
First stop, Costco, to get some gas and load up on the essentials (bread, eggs, brocc, spinach, tortillas and apples) and we couldn’t escape the food court without spending $3 for two……
Hotdogs and drinks.
Something cool happened tonight. In my past (5 years ago) there was NO WAY that I would have come within 5 feet of a hot dog (not because it was meat but because it was one of my fear foods) you can read more about that here and here. Once I started getting past my disordered thinking I started eating my ‘fear foods’ without guilt but I was also running 60 miles a week and teaching spin classes which helped me to transition into that stage of feeling no guilt.
Here is where the awesome part is coming in……I am not exercising right now and I can eat my old ‘fear foods’ without feeling any guilt and guess what…..I didn’t wake up 900 lbs or feel sad in the least bit. I feel like a normal person, hallelujah.
Sorry, I just felt like sharing that in case any of you are afraid to eat certain things without exercising it off……. ya know what I mean? No more feeling guilty for indulging in a $1 hot dog every now and then missing some workouts, you are perfect just the way you are!
After Costco, we drove straight to my parents to celebrate my brother’s 49th birthday.
I think we look alike in this picture.
Please notice my excellent wrapping job for his present……newspaper is the latest thing.
He was kind and let my niece help blow out the candles. I am not that generous and on my bday I don’t let anyone breath near the candles.
Isn’t my gma adorable!
You bet your bottom dollar that we had the same dessert as Sunday nights dessert because once we find something we love, we stick to it.
As we were eating dessert we heard a noise coming from the deck, we looked out the window and what did we see……
My bro-in-law randomly bought two baby lamb today. The kids freaked out….I have never seen them so happy and excited in their life.
I should have guessed something was up when he called us earlier in the day asking where to buy those glass coke bottles (he doesn’t drink soda)…..little did I know it was to make bottles for lamb.
He may be sleeping on the couch for the next little while….don’t think sissy is very excited about this considering they don’t live on a farm……but at least the kids are beyond happy!! Perfect for Easter:)
What animals did you have growing up? What animals do you have now?
-We had dogs, hamsters and birds at one point. No pets yet…..still working on getting my responsibility chart filled up with stickers before Billy will let me get one.
Are birthdays a big deal in your family?
-Yes, I like to sing the bday song at least 3 times, presents, dessert and dessert round 2.
Favorite angel food cake (in our case vanilla bean cake) toppings (even though I think it is a sin that it doesn’t have frosting)?
-Lots o’ whipped cream and strawberries or peaches when they are in season.
What is your Wednesday workout?
-I am going to pump and skipping any of the lower body lifting…..I will just stare (wow, I am creepy) at my fellow classmates while they are in pain and agony from 4 trillion squats.
