Can you hear the angels signing? It's because a miracle happened!!!
My body finally figured out my brain was right about craptastic food.
I know - it's crazy - just take a minute to process.
Ready? I've been trying to eat as healthy as possible for a while now. I'd give myself little indulgences, but tried to find ways to make them a touch healthier. Still, whenever I'd look at something REALLY bad but REALLY good, the inner conversation would be:
Brain: Oh Dear Lord, I am not eating that!
Body: ME WANT!!! ME WANT NOW!!!!!
Brain: Do you know how much gym time that equals?
Body: MUST PUT IT IN MY MOUTH!!!
Brain: Hello! Check a mirror and look at the size of you a$$!
Body (picking up yummyness): SOOOOOOO GOOOOOD!!!! SOOOO HAPPY!!!!
Brain: Well, crap.
I never noticed how much my inner voice sounds like Cookie Monster before. Interesting.
Anyway, now, FINALLY, the sight of craptastic food no longer sets off that conversation. I've actually found that I'm sick the day after I eat crap. Whoo hoo! Now, instead of "I'll never drink like that again" it's "I'm not eating that again." I LOVE it that my brain and body are finally in sync!
Have a great day!

Hello Sparkly ones!
Well, today marks a week that I've been in my own little apartment with the kids. Amazingly, today was the most relaxing Saturday I can remember having in forever! I did a short 10 minute workout this morning, then took the kids swimming. While they swam, I threaded water and kept moving as much as possible. My mom wanted to meet us at Golden Corral for dinner (bleh!) so when we got home, I took the kids and dog for a walk to a park about half a mile up the street. Now watching some shark week before bed!
School starts next week...I can't believe my baby is starting kindergarten!! I can't believe how well they're adjusting to so many changes in their lives! I'm not quite back on track quit yet, but I'm getting there!

I've been thinking about getting back on here for awhile now, but life was just too...much. Ya know?
First off, I have to apologize to the Golden Phoenix BLC Team. I totally bailed on you guys. I'm so sorry. I got the messages, reminders, and posts...I just couldn't get my head in a good enough space to be a part of anything other than the craziness I was going through. I'm up about 15 pounds...and I'm sure that wouldn't have happened if I would have kept my head in the game.
My marriage has been going badly for a bit, but the past six months were just torture. On June 30th, we had the final blow out and split up. I (and my kids) got dumped because my soon to be ex didn't think he had enough freedom. The final straw was when he joined a motorcycle gang (that had been featured on Gangland, no less!) and I begged him to stop. I finally gave him the "them or us" ultimatum..and he chose them. I still, honestly, can't get my head around that one. On top of that, I can't afford our home on my own and had a month to find a new place for the kids, dog, and I to live. Thankfully, I found an apartment in the nick of time and will be moving next weekend.
I am still, of course, heartbroken and feel pretty crappy. It's odd, we can tell ourselves constantly that it's not us...but I couldn't help that every time I look in there mirror, I think "If I was skinny would he still want me?" "If I was prettier would that have helped?" I don't think it would have, but those thoughts are still there. I even won a trip from work and took the family to Mexico (pic below) and he was pretty decidedly unexcited. I know it's his issue he needs to figure out (though it is decidedly too late for our marriage), but I'm still in the angry-sad-hurt-feeling ok-wait, gonna beat him up roller coaster stage.
Anyway, that's why I've been off the grid. My new month/apartment/life resolution is to get back to it and be an AMAZING role model for my kids. They deserve nothing less...and, really, neither do I!

I'm so tired I can barely type, but what a great day! I managed to pull myself out of bed for 6:55 am BodyPump. I usually do not go to that class and was shocked at how many people were there so early on a Saturday!
This afternoon I went with my son on his Tiger Scout trip to tour the Daniel Boone Home. Very interesting stuff and a ton of walking around
Finally, I used some leftover northern white beans and turnip greens to make an amazing soup! I did slip a bit an great myself to a brownie the kids had....it happens.
Now, time to relax!
