Grapes that have been sitting on top of the garlic=not so good tasting!!

Monday, October 28, 2013

Hi there Sparkies. It was a long weekend here, today was labour day. Labour referring to work, not being in labour!! Just being silly. Being in labour, well I've been there done that. And my days of doing that are well and truely gone. I have two amazing kids who are incredibly cool kids. Even though Dwayne is no longer a kid. Sammy will be seventeen soon. And that is hard to believe. Kids just grow up so fast. Although I seem to have had more time with Dwayne growing up. Whereas Sammy seemed to grow up so so fast. Although with both kids I had different circumstances. Sammy was my second child so maybe that is why her toddler years seemed to go quicker.
Back to the topic of the title. Hmmm, I went to have a yummy fruit salad before. Made with fresh fruit:-banana,tamarillo (yummmmmm-although very expensive), grapes which had been put in the vegetable box with the garlic. And the flavour was tainted. I ate them though, with yoghurt,a sprinkle of allbran and chopped nuts. I have been good today, which I thought I must do. Especially after two days of allowing myself to go off track. And I did a workout in my room this time , instead of in the dinning room,where the computer is,and the dumbells and treadmill. It was a great workout. I used my 2kilo dumbells, which equals 4.4 pounds each. I did other exercises this time, as my bed worked great for some of them. I enjoyed it, and I usually do with my dumbell workouts. But I think it will be more fun in my room. I kind of got put off, well a little embarrassed doing them in the dinning room after I got Dwayne about two weeks ago to video me doing my workout. Since then, I was quite embarrassed coz Dwayne had seen my workout. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
But I am back on track with my bedroom being a better place. Even the dogs have to stay out when I'm exercising.
I am just getting my tea ready. I am having egg on toast, I might have tomato as well with it. emoticon emoticon emoticon
Well Sparkies I am going to have tea and watch tv with the kids and I'll catch you later emoticon

    Good job Shell - I read your comments on Houndlover's LC blog & thought your sounded like a kindred soul! (I'm still fiddling around trying to find the right "lifestyle" for me)
    I can't work out at home w/dogs & cats underfoot - finally made it back to gym yesterday to perform my "labour"...

    I ran my grapes through the blender with blueberries, apples, and garlic emoticon It's quite a yummy concoction to drink.

    I think it is funny that you wrote that the dogs need to stay out when exercising. I understand! emoticon My cats think I am playing and get in my way. For example, if I am laying down with dumbbells in my hands, they will jump on my chest and try to kiss my nose! emoticon Have a great day and keep up the wonderful "labour" you are doing! emoticon

    The main thing is you did exercise. And I can imagine those grapes were sure different than you expected. That would have been a Kodak moment, the first bite of grapes...! I had a half cup of coffee and still can't nod off at 2:30am. Oops.
