I've been sick..blah blah blah. I know that was in there. Riley got her stitches out and now has those Steri-Strip things holding her boo boo together. It used to be a fight to get a band-aid on and now she's like Fifty-Cent wearing it as a fashion statement - she doesn't want to take it off!
So along with me being sick came eating for comfort and boredom. Now, I don't eat alot of things but I do eat all the wrong things! Ice Cream...ok it's low fat, light blah blah blah but it's ice cream! Popcorn. Not horrible on it's own, air popped and tasting like cardboard but that's not what I'm snaking on. Bring on the butter or the kettle corn....Hold on, I'm drooling! Ok, took a sip of water to stop salivating. Pretzels. My #1 enemy. I can eat an entire box of those hard Snyders Sour dough pretzels. OH MY GOD! I love to chip a tooth on those bad boys! And well, let's face it...when your sick with the sniffles, sneezes, sinus head ache from hell, ouchy ears and the poops that come along with the antibiotics, you eat whatever you want.
The scale wasn't too bad to me but I did run around like a mad woman at the bounce house on Saturday. Riley had a birthday party for her "boyfriend" and I swear I went down the bouncy slide more than she did. It was awesome! Best work out ever! They should make adult bounce house places...make the bouncy things bigger and market it as a workout facility...hmmm, That's not a bad idea....
Here's a pic of all of us on the big slide. I'm all the way on the right with Riley in my lap. My sister is the one all the way on the left. My bro-inlaw is behind her with my nephew and then Shannon next to me.
So any who...Yesterday I had a trade show to attend and that's a work out too. I was sweating like a piggie! And it was BEAUTIFUL outside! It's georgous again today and it's supposed to be amazing again tomorrow. Riley just wants to be outside all the time and I'm totally game for that!!
This is my little Tom Boy outside in her boy's Thomas t-shirt! Have I ever told you all how addicted my DAUGHTER is to Thomas the train? Addicted! A-DIC-TID! She will only wear Thomas "panties" and if you know anything about Thomas the train, they don't make girls Thomas unders. So, my little girl where's boy's undewear. Yes, the gay moms put their daughter in boy unders. My kid is going to have such a complex! She does carry a purse though. She carries a purse all the time. You want to know what's in her purse? TRAINS! That's right! Thomas, Percy, James, Emily, Molly, Rosie...all of them are in the purse!
So I'm down 2.5 pounds in 2 weeks. Eh...that's ok. I get my next fill on Monday. Thank god!!! I've been good today...so far but I do plan on doing a little bit of running/walking tonight since it's SOOOO nice outside. Maybe I can drop another pound before Monday.
