I had such a great time with Logan on Friday! Our day together was so much fun. I guess I have never taken him to the mall without a stroller….. never even realized until we went into Sears and he was freaking out with excitement about the escalator
* escalators are like roller coasters to 2 year olds. We rode it quite a few times
Logan and I had such a great mom-son time - it was nice to have a car again during the day and actually take him shopping and treat him to timbits ….and myself! if you missed me eating a timbit better get on facebook
I worked both Friday night and Saturday all day. I have been coming down with something but fighting it off (knock on wood) for over a week. I’ve been trying to keep my eating super healthy to keep the germs away….even at work I come prepared…
* I don’t know if you can see…but those are peppers in my blazer pocket lol
Sunday morning I woke up early to run my LSD run with Leah, however she had decided to do hers on Saturday – ruining my plans for an awesome trail run ;P (yes Leah, you are a bum) Anyway, we still got a solid run in, though it was half of what my goal for the day was it was just nice to see her
The scenery was nice too …
I am the kind of person that doesn’t like to run twice in one day – if I stop to stretch or change destinations, odds are I won’t run again. I went into ‘mom mode’ after our run as it was time to get Logan ready for Tyler’s birthday party.
* this photo doesn’t do it justice – but it was the biggest pizza I’ve ever seen!!!
Logan was so excited about going. It was a great party, but turning down a whole whack of awesome treats and not 1 but 2 cakes sucked
I did eat pizza….which I will assume has sugar in it – as I am finding that EVERYTHING man-made does!!!! even though I slipped up with the sugar strike I am loving how much I’m learning from it. I had no idea how much sugar I was consuming, nor how many things had sugar in them!
I’m going to post more about this tomorrow
1. escalator or elevator??
ESCALATOR! I am like Logan – when he said “Try again Mom” I was all for it. We just went up and down for a while lol
2. can you run/workout twice in one day – and I don’t mean consecutively I mean two different times??
Sometimes I can do it if they are back to back (with no stretching or cool down) and I can definitely do more than one workout – ie: switching between different things but I’d never do 2 bike rides or 2 runs – it drives me nuts!
3. are you aware of how much sugar you’re eating?? do you even care?
I am starting to care. Though I hate coming off like some health nut! I HATE IT! I don’t want to make people think they have to change what they’re eating. My boss and I had lunch together and mine was a turkey wrap on ww with a side of veggies and for dessert a bowl of plain greek yogurt with berries – hers was Arby’s and she kept saying weird things like “I feel bad” and such…..not at ALL how I want to be perceived. I’m just EXCITED about the fact that I’m actually enjoying these changes!!!
