Oh, ouch.

I went way over my calories yesterday. Was doing well, until I stopped at Arby's and decided to try their Peppermint Swirl Shake thingy. It was super delicious!! But not sure it was worth the calories. A medium is over 600 calories! Ouch! I asked for a small but was told they didn't make it in that size. Well, I just know that I have to stay away from that until it goes away again.

I did start taking a magnesium supplement. It hasn't quiet been a week yet so I'm not entirely sure how much it has helped. Give it another week or two and I will let ya'll know how it's affected me.

Had a super busy weekend this last weekend. Took the kids out and did a ton of stuff. We did some Color Me Mine on Saturday and then took them to a candy store. I don't normally allow sugar in the house, mainly cause I eat it all! I took one piece from both of them and ended up spitting out what was called a Peach Penguin. Gah, the horrible taste! The kids and Andy all laughed at me and made a point to eat them in front of me saying they didn't understand why I didn't like them. Well, good riddance. That just meant that there was one less thing for me to be tempted by.

Then on Sunday I took the kids to a local Pagan store to meet the Holy King. They each got to pick out a polished stone and some incense. I think they enjoyed themselves and I now have a holiday picture with them.

Well, today is going better as far as cals than yesterday, but time to go find something for lunch. See ya!
