Valentines Day

Monday, February 14, 2011

Happy Valentines Day! I use to hate valentines day when I was younger and without anyone to share it with. However, now its great. I have my hubby and my kids. And while my hubby and I dont do anythign really for valentines day, I get to spoil my kids and let them know how much I love them. Of couse today we had a huge food fest at work. I really really tried to be so good. I had my normal breakfast of yogurt and fruit. Added a little extra fruit that someone brought in for snack. And had a plate of veggies before I ate my taco salad at lunch. along with some spiniach dip and beer bread (not sure how bad that really is for you...well the beer bread cant be good anyway. then I walked over to the sweets side...and there is my weakness....chocolate covered strawberries, and strawberry shortcake...ugh. my downfall. looks like I will be doing some cardio tonight and a walk after lunch to let my food settle. Maybe I'll make it a long walk today... since the sun is shining and its 47 outside today! awesomely warm temps for February!
Yesterday I also tried to be very good. And in fact for the most part, I gotta say with food I was good. I got up early and worked out for 40 min, had a nice breakfast with the family, did some visiting and had lunch at Red Robin with my brother to celebrate my birthday. I actually got a free meal there, so I chose the BLTA...my favorite when I go there. and of course I got a free sundae to go with it, which my daughter ate most of anyway. Then I had a small dinner and of course my mother in law brought over cake. So I had to have a piece. I should've brought the rest in to work. Oh well, its ok, my hubby will eat it all...I'll make sure of it...I pack his lunch afterall emoticon

    Holidays have always been just another day. As a kid, Valentines Day was fun. We decorated a shoe box by covering it with white paper, paper doilies, stick on hearts, etc. I have always thought of it as something for kids. After I married it was fun getting a sweet valentine from dh.
