Big time DETOX today

Friday, July 05, 2013

Went to my sister's house in middle-of-nowhere WI to watch my niece while my brand-spanking new niece was being delivered:

Over the course of 4 days took my girls +1 to the zoo, and I lost track of how many parks (the key to minding three kids? TIRE THEM OUT!!! lol)

Came back home in time for 4th of July festivities:

And consumed more starchy products in the last 5 days than I have in the last 4 MONTHS, plus a cupcake, Blizzard, cheesecake, and several homemade cookies that were my contribution for the killer 4th of July cookout we went to. (quality control, right???)

Not surprisingly, I have had a bad stomach ache for the better part of the past 4 days (though my girls are feeling icky too, so we might have caught a bug, exacerbated by my horrid eating.)

So today is detox. I have had nothing but plain iced coffee, water, and a protein shake. Honestly I ate so much yesterday I'm not even hungry yet, and it's 3:30. emoticon

So it goes. My schedule *should* calm down a LOT now, and there are no more holidays in sight for a little while. Just 55 days til the Caribbean and instead of feeling lean & confident, I'm rocking some major jiggly bloat. It's like I tell my girls though, you make bad choices, you suffer the consequences. I reallllllly need to do better about eating away from home. It's like I leave the safe confines of my normal routine and all h#ll breaks loose. It's a free-for-all! Almost SIX YEARS on Spark, and in this healthier living lifestyle and I STILL have not managed to figure that one out. Hopefully it'll happen in the next six....

Have a splendid weekend! (I play Candy Crush too much)

    Eating out and vacations are definitely my downfall. You are not alone.

    That's not in the middle of nowhere if you were close enough to go to the Madison Zoo. No, I live out in the middle of nowhere! It's a beautiful place though, so I can't complain too much. You should have taken them to the Dells, then you would have been in a swimsuit and therefore more conscientious of what you were eating. Although it would have taken a bit of time to pack up the correct foods to take along with, taking some of the fun out. Six years on Spark, well look at this way, where would you have been if you hadn't been on Spark at all? Yeah, I don't think you would want to be in that place at all, so you have come a long way and are so much healthier.

    What a nice time spent with family! Good memories for a lifetime! Sweet!

    All the girls are beautiful!! You did a great job with them.

    I don't do well eating out either. I always mean to say, "I'll have a garden salad with low calorie dressing and instead I hear myself say, "I'll have a Whopper with mustard and pickle and a medium fry. LOL.
