We all know people who suck the life out of us...energy vampires. I am trying harder not to let those people bother me. I limit my small circle of friends to people who are similar to me and will cheer me on. It is a lot harder to deal with someone who is an energy vampire and they are family. I have a plan in place for this weekend to handle people who will be around me who will try everything to get little digs in, make comments, or try in other ways to bring me down even though it is a time to celebrate my sister's approaching marriage.
*Pack my own food. I do not eat many of the things that will be served. I will have to deal with comments about how I am not eating cake, why isn't she eating a sandwich...etc. Who cares what I am or am not eating? Shouldn't everyone be enjoying everyone's company? Some people are used to me packing everything and it will not phase them.
*Take lots of pics! This is a great way to distract myself from potential drama. "Sorry gotta take some pics for the bride.":) I would love nothing more than to cut my mom off mid rant about whatever and say "CHEESE."
*Run the games and present unwrapping. No one can bother me if I am helping:)
*Work out in the AM. The gym is 2 miles from my sister's house. For a mere 10 bucks and a super hard workout I created, I think my sanity will be somewhat saved:)
*Drink lots of water. Sorry, gotta go...literally:)
I hope everything goes really well. I know my sister just wants it to be over. My mom is probably the number one reason. She could potentially drive me nuts, but I am not giving her that control. If she wants to rant, let her...maybe I will capture it on camera:)
12 miles spin
Front squats #65...all were solid. Time to add some weight:)

Last minute Target run and then packing for our trip:)
Oh and if you have not made a protein pancake in the blender yet...DO IT! The batter is awesome! I got a sweet new blender and it made the best pancake ever! So good I had to have 2:)
