What a crazy few days! Today is the toddlers birthday, my little guy is now 3 years old. THREE! Where did the time go? He marks my transformation into a healthy lifestyle and to celebrate, what did we eat today? Well, ummm, ice cream and cake of course!
Yes, yes, I overate a bit and I splurged on cake and ice cream but that’s what birthdays are all about. Right? What I’m disappointed about is my mindless munches while making the cold cut platter and the bread eating at dinner. Both things I told myself not to do anymore. It’s a stupid way to consume extra calories when I could be spending them on much more satisfying food. *kicking self in ass* stupid, just stupid!
All in all though, the day could have been much worse. I made a healthy breakfast for everyone, omelets, corn muffins (link to come), and homemade hash browns (recipe to come). For lunch, sandwiches on whole grain buns and a cold shrimp salad (recipe to come). Plus I got the family out hiking after cake and presents. We did an awesome 2.8 mile hilly hike on a local trail! I even had to carry my 40lb niece part of the way, talk about a workout!
So right now I would be looking forward for a return to normalcy after the 3 days at the beach, my family house guest and the toddler birthday party but it’s not going to happen for awhile. My surgery is scheduled on Tuesday and I’m really nervous about how the recovery is going to affect me.
I did find time this morning to snap a few pictures before everyone woke up. My latest tummy shots are posted and I snapped a progress photos for my progression page. I wish I didn’t have to take these after 5 days of vacation and craziness. My diet has been a bit out of whack but, oh well, that’s life I guess. I have to admit I feel like a beached whale right now, just TOO MUCH food.
I hope to be posting more regularly again. I’m getting backlogged on posts. I have to write 3 product reviews, a book review, a new question of the week and a recipe I photographed today. I also have almost 100 Ask Roni questions and I’ll have the surgery/recover to blog about. *sigh* why do vacation cause even more work then you have before going?
I really can’t complain, all of that is better then having nothing to do!
