Oh hey, good morning!
How’s your weekend treating you? Ours is going by a little too quickly for my liking and I’m not getting quite as much done as I had hoped (story of my life), but thought I’d start the day off with a few confessions.
Workouts over the past few days:
I know I said my last trip up there was my “break up” trip, but well, I guess I lied. I got the offer for a one on one and a group workout so I begged STUFT Daddy to let me make just one more trip.
Um, yeah, the experience was awesome as usual and I’ll recap the whole trip tomorrow. I even have a little video to share of Bob coaching me and I got a little life lesson I’ve been dwelling over ever since.
A quick 6.6 mile treadmill run at the gym while watching Intervention.
A short, but very fun dance party before dinner with an awesome new band.
Okay, so confession time. First of all I have the kitchen timer set not only to have Joaquin go to the bathroom, but to see if I can get this quick post up. Pretty clever, huh?
Here we go.
Yeah, that’s the messy office that I tried to tackle yesterday. I’m not even going to show you the desk. I’m embarrassed. I’m more embarrassed to admit that it’s been like that for a very long time. I get to work on it again this afternoon. Lucky me.
Check out the pictures I have up in the boys’ room.
Yep, I put those frames in there when the boys were born to use them and switch out the pictures. The boys will be three at the end of next month and those old pictures of my grandparents are still up there. Both my grandparents have since passed away, so maybe I should keep those pictures up, but I have no new pictures of the boys in their room. I need to get it together.
Don’t even ask about their baby books. They’re pretty much untouched.
Mom of the Year.
I hoard squash.
Yesterday I consumed an entire kabocha squash. Actually, pretty much every time I make squash I eat the entire thing in one day. Sometimes I try to save half for the next day, but it never really happens. I always end up eating it later in the day.
Yesterday after I ate most of it in the morning I ate the remainder later in the day along with a roasted fuji apple.
I guess I hoard hot sauces too.
I also hoard Silk PureAlmond milk and huge jugs of egg whites.
I said I really wanted to give up artificial sweeteners awhile back. I’ve been trying to limit them, but I have to admit that I still have them daily. I even made a mocha this morning with these.
Brewed Peet’s coffee in my stovetop espresso maker, 2 tablespoons Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons Torani sugar free Almond Roca syrup and 1 1/2 cup Silk PureAlmond Unsweetened Vanilla milk.
It was magnificent.
I had to make it extra strong because this little guy got me up bright and early this morning and informed me it was time to get up and have some applesauce.
We just had a very long discussion in the kitchen about Kitty and the fact that he is a boy. The boys still aren’t convinced. Maybe it’s the manboobs.
Um, and yes, I desperately need to give Kitty a bath.
I’m supposed to bathe him every week. I can’t remember the last time I actually did. Bad mama.
Speaking of bad mama, not a day goes by that I don’t regret teaching my boys to pick their noses.
And one quick silly story for you before I go.
On my way back home from my trip to LA Friday, I had to make an emergency Starbucks stop for a café Americano.
I went in, thought I left my phone in the car so decided to just leave it there while I got my coffee.
Well, I got back to my car and no phone.
I panicked. Ran back into Starbucks and dug through the trash. (Yes, I totally did while explaining to people staring at me that I may have dropped my phone in there.)
I finally begged some nice girl to call my phone so I could hopefully track it down.
Um, yeah. It totally started ringing. In my shirt. Where I always carry it. My Handful just holds it so perfectly.
I quickly thanked the nice girl and pretty much ran to my car. I am really not the sharpest told in the shed sometimes.
Silly, silly me.
Okay, enough confessions. You all might not want to be my friend anymore. Ha.
It’s time to get a move one.
We’ve got a little stroller run on the agenda today. Nothing too big because I’ve been trying to rest a little this week. I’m starting a new running training program tomorrow with a coach. Yes, that’s right a coach and a plan (I’ve never followed a plan before). I’m nervous. I’ll make sure to share all the details later this week. This guy knows his stuff.
Oh and one last confession. I love mail. I love getting packages, especially those filled with LOVE. I look forward to my Love Grown Foods drops so stinking much.
My favorite flavor is Cocoa Goodness.
I’ve been known to consumed an entire bag in one day. More than once. It’s just that good and I admit that I just don’t have that kind of self control.
But…… I do have a little something for you (to repay you for dealing with all my confessions).
Yes, yes, I do. I have a coupon for a FREE bag of Love Grown Foods granola.
All you have to do to enter for the coupon is leave me a comment here with a confession.
I’ll choose a winner Tuesday morning.
