So I totally fell off the goal wagon last Sunday. Remember when I was going to take those two days off between Jan & Feb and totes slack off? Well, I didn't. I did everything those two days and banked them for when Annie & I took our shopping day in February. The shopping day hasn't happened yet (due to kitchen stuff) so I took those two days for our party & the day after. And then the day after that. :) I needed some time, man. Time to veg on the couch, take a nap and read a book. No regrets and I am back on track now. Next month I am even giving myself one day off a week. I am not a machine. ;) obvs.
Our kitchen is totally finished (well, phase one is. phase two involves big things that we won't even think about for a while.) I love it. It's what I always wanted. :) Our valentine's get together was really fun even though I was really tired and felt a little off on my hostessing game. :) My sitting on the couch game was on point, though. We had our v-day breakfast that morning, too, which the kids always love. Hmmmmm, what else? At the party all the kids wanted to sleep over here and we ended up having 4/5 of them. I couldn't believe Patrick said yes! Nicky was at grandma's...he didn't even really know we had a party. Poor Nick. He can come next time.
The last 2 days have been gorgeous (40!!) and yesterday Nick and I went to Andrea's and the boys played outside and then we walked to Culver's for lunch. Did you know Culver's has delicious sprinkles??? They do! I could have eaten all of them last night. Luckily they weren't here.
Today was supposed to be a work day but instead it was a 2 hour delay and I drove everyone to school before I realized it. :( So now we are home and Nick will go to daycare tomorrow instead. Fine by me. I hope he is in the mood to watch Call the Midwife later.
Have you seen that??
OH MY GOSH. My sister and mom told me about it last year but I am just watching it. SO GOOD. I was laughing and tearing up last night and could have totally had an ugly cry but held back. Patrick and I have Sleepytime tea almost every night now and last night it was my turn to make it and I said NO when he sweetly asked me! I couldn't stop watching!! :) I promised him some tonight.
I have been at that weight I spoke of a while back for a week now. If I didn't know better I'd say this weight is HAUNTED and I am cursed to never get below it. Instead, I am hanging in there and hoping I will get past it this week or next. I mean, COME ON. I could have eaten all the sprinkles but I DIDN'T!
Want to know what I did eat yesterday? Well, I'm going to tell you anyways. hahahahhahaha! In case you're wondering what 1650 calories can look like, here it is:
1.5 eggs/1.5 wheat toast with bit of butter/3 turkey sausages: 300 calories
coffee: 100 calories
hershey's kiss: 25 calories
apple: 100 calories
culvers chicken strips/bbq sauce/bit of butter/mashed potatoes/applesauce/2/3 of a single scoop of vanilla with sprinkles: 650
taco salad (lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, cheese, gr. turkey, low cal sour cream, taco sauce): 320
banana: 100 ...1680 or something? Lots of food! And yes, mashed potatoes and applesauce totally counted towards my fruits & veggies yesterday. :)
I have a few pics I will post in a while once I shake these kids off my leg.
