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.
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)
