Giant Pop Bottles, Tea Rooms, and Undeserved Success
Wednesday, February 01, 2012
Wild Wednesday. To start off I just want to say I did not deserve to be successful. Yes I worked my but off on the trails near my home. Still walking but actually running for spurts. I hope to work my way up to a complete run in the near future. I could feel it a little. The way it feels when you run and you no longer have to think about where to place your feet or the rhythm of your breath, a little like being on auto-pilot. I fly. And then my body realizes I have burdened it with a lot of extra pounds since it's last run and starts to complain. But that's okay. I will get there again, and this time I will appreciate it for what it is. Freedom.
I did well again for my weekly weigh in losing a couple undeserved pounds, undeserved because I did NOT eat well over the weekend and was very very bad. So bad I refused to log onto my spark page at all. I felt very guilty about it too. But the good thing is that even after totally annihilating my hard work over the weekend I made an amazing come back, worked my but off this week and still had a loss.
So what did I learn? I learned the key to success is hard work and persistence despite failures. I also learned I should plan some activities over the weekend so I am not entirely bored and end up eating.
Speaking of eating my project this week and next is working on some soups and sandwiches for
my tea rooms that will be opening in April. I am trying to fine tune a French Onion and also working at making some fun colored french macaroons. If anyone has any amazing recipes for said items please share! I need to get a serious menu together really soon.
And in other miscellaneous news I went to see a giant pop bottle on the old Route 66 the other day with my daughter. It's Gigantic. Reminds me a little of the eiffel tower (but tackier) It even lights up at night! They serve like 500 flavors of pop, even a hot wing flavor, and while I don't generally drink soda at all it was a fun place to see. So if you are ever on route 66 check out POPS. It's actually a service station/ diner/ pop emporium. Here is the giant pop bottle:
Have a great week!
