Ugggg...sugar pusher was at it again!!!!

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

We went to our friends daughters birthday party last night. She threw red velvet cake in my face. Ugggg... red velvet seems to be my kryptonite lately. Full of frosting. It was really good but come on! I'm actually sick of dessert! Not that I'm saying I didn't enjoy every bite but this is getting rediculous. Tonight we are supposed to meet friends for ice cream! I'm going to get a kiddie cup with sugar free ice cream but seriously! I'm going to Zumba this morning and doing one song. One seems good today. Other food choices were amazing. Lunch was a chef salad with no cheese. Dinner was baked chicken with Franks hot sauce, steamed zuccini and broccoli. Yum! Lots of water. Oh, you are not going to believe this! The voice coach of the musical posted that she had been in contact with the writer of the original broadway show 13. He said he wanted certain members of the cast to come to NYC to meet him!!!!! I know!!! Thats crazy!!!! She is working on getting a bus trip together to make it happen! We will see. There is auditions for High School Musical on Saturday and they are looking forward to it. I will work on my routine some more this afternoon. That should get me about 2 hours of exercise. That should help with last nights kryptonite. Have a great day!

    A new store opened up across the street from work and they have red velvet cupcakes there and they are ALL over my office all day everyday! I have told myself there are maggots in them... extreame I know but I havent eaten one yet!

I hope you find the strength to decline the cake! I know it is hard but you can do it... bring a healthier snack for you to events! If you are full you will be less likely to give in!

    Believe it or not.

I have never heard of red velvet cake until the Cake Boss was aired. I had to look it up on the computer...funny huh?

Keep moving and you'll do good. Also, make sure that you get small pieces. Nothing worse than having a saboteur around that says, "Oh, it's just one thing for the night!" emoticon

Yay Tuesday!

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

So yesturday was a downer for me. I was very emotional and tired from all the excitement of the weekend. So I did what every girl knows is a cure all... I watched a mushy chick flick, cried my little eyes out drank alot of water and some hot tea. I did meet Joe for lunch. That was helpful. Joe brought home a bottle of really good wine and we all watched a funny stupid movie. That was perfect. Yay Tuesday because I went to my Zumba class and taught 3 songs! Ok it started out that way and before the class was done I did one more! Yay! The girls loved it and I felt pretty comfortable considering! Yay!!!! So moving on with my day. I have to say that even though I was emotional and coming down from my sugar high...I did not binge! Score! I had a salmon salad with mango salsa and broccoli. Joe brought home chinese for the kids. He ordered steamed chicken and broccoli for himself. I had a bit of that. Thats it! Yay! Today I've had Activia yogurt and a handful of almonds. We are meeting Joe for lunch. Have a great day friends! Enjoy!

The show has closed...

Monday, August 15, 2011

An amazing performance was had by all. Yay! Alot of crying at the end. Adam and Joe are now a couple. Joe ( I know this is going to get confusing with boyfriend Joe and dad Joe with the same name), I'll say dad Joe, has to definitely have the talk with Adam. They are going to the movies tomorrow night with friends to see Glee the Movie. He is so happy. Food was weird yesterday. I made egg whites with lowfat cheddar and mango salsa for breakfast. Activia yogurt for snack and a starbucks soy latte on our way to the show. We didn't leave the school until 5pm and Adam went to the cast party. We went with Tori's parents to a little italian resturant. I had a garden salad with balsamic vinegrette and chicken marsala. I only had about 4 fork fulls of pasta. Homemade pasta! Yum. 3 bad choices... 2 rasberry martini's and 1 huge cannoli. Ugggggg...I didn't have any lunch. I was celebrating the wonderful accomplishments of my son. I was dining with my friend who is huge with overindulging all the time. It was like the worlds were conspiring against me. We were also catching up with them on everything that has happened in 6 months. It's really been the first time we've been with them without the kids since Adam told Tori in January. They have been dealing with his lymphoma all this time as well so its just been alot. It was a great visit and very important but alcohol and dessert seemed necessary for me to get through rehashing this year. I will refocus today. My therapist is away on vacation and I don't even have a new appt. set up with her. Uggggg... I'm going to work on my routine this morning. Hopefully expending some energy will help. Blogging usually does. :) Thanks for being here my friends. Have a great day.

    HURRAH FOR JOE AND ADAM!
Such blessings!
Get back up on the horse.
I'm sure that you will continue to Zumba and exercise!
Once in a while is OK.
HURRAH FOR YOU!
It could have been much worse in the company of anover-indulgent friend!

Busy busy busy....

Sunday, August 14, 2011

A very busy Saturday. I went to my hip hop class and saw the director of class. She wants me to teach 3 songs on Thursday!!!! Uggggg... I guess I will get it together and make that happen. Pray begins now. I went to my neices party. She is a sweetheart. Just love her. I ate exceptionally well :)...until... dessert. I had a yummy piece of homemade red velvet cake with cheesecake frosting and chocolate graham cracker crust. Omg! So amazing. I also had a big scoop of red velvet ice cream. Yum! I won't beat myself up abou that. I was a party and worth every bite. We went to the evening show and the kids improved so much! We sat in the front row which was fun :). Adam has definitely been bit by the acting bug. After the show he told me that the director of the play that Adam was asked to perform with for the next two weeks was in the audience and told the voice coach that he is fantastic! Adam was beaming :). Here is where I was bad... The cast went to Friendly's of all places after the show. I detest the food there so ended up with a happy ending sundae. I got this new yummy flavor. Peanut brittle...Omg again! I chose chocolate syrup instead of hot fudge and Joe ate some of my whipped cream. I felt like I was on a sugar high. I haven't had that much dessert in a long time. Ugggg... I actually feel a tiny longing for mor sugar already this morning. I will distract myself. I will not spiral. Adams last show is today. Rehersal for next show starts tomorrow night. I need to go back to basics today with food. A few days of basics and I should feel back on track. Have a great day. Enjoy!

Wow! What an amazing openning night!

Saturday, August 13, 2011

It was so awesome. These kids were great! Adam had 13 friends and family there to see him in one of the lead parts of 13 the musical. :) He was so great. It was very emotional for me. I told Joe this morning...we have always been a bit more worried about Adam. We didn't get why but he never seemed in his element. In baseball, basketball... I saw him completely in his element last night. He was Adam. It was a beautiful thing. He sang beautifully and acted... Wow...ok now I'm gushing again. I'm a proud mama. My inlaws of course drove me absolutely nuts. I have to be with them today at a party while Joe is at work. Those events are usually difficult. Today will be torture. Food choices great! I worked on my routine for an hour yesturday and felt much more confident. I know 7 songs down and have 3 that I'm working on. Only a couple more new ones and I'm gold. I was offered another job yesturday! At my gym. Its Wenesday mornings at 9 30 am. Perfect for me! My goal by January is to have all of my classes in the morning. I'm going to my hip hop class at 10 30 and then bring Adam over to play run through at 12 30. My parents and brother and his family will go while I'm at the party. Ugggg.... I will pray my way through that party and count the minutes until the play tonight. Prayer has helped me so much this week. Thanks sparkies for reminding me of how important it is. :) I get caught in my head sometimes and can't see the answer right in front of me. The Lord is always the answer. Thanks for pulling me out of my drama. Have a great day!

    OY SUCH A MAMELA! You SHOULD KVELL! (swell with pride)
It is great that Adam has found his element.
And that his parents are supportive.
Wouldn't it have been great for him to have been in a GLEE class in High School!?!?!?!
