Well hello! How’s your weekend so far? Ours has been full of amazing food so far, and we have an exciting photography project tomorrow morning! Can’t wait
Let’s start off with this: it’s impossible to sleep in when you have 2 puppies in the house, much like I imagine having children will be like. Once it hits 6 or 6:30, they are up and at ‘em, and are TOTALLY not into letting us sleep any longer! Just look at them! Awakened from their beastly slumber:
I love ‘em anyway Once we were up and going I decided to take Nate on a man date. We started off with one of his favorite breakfasts…FRENCH TOAST! I decided to make a strawberry-peach syrup to go on top. You start with 2 cups of chopped frozen strawberries (make sure you let them thaw for a few minutes first) and 1 cup of chopped frozen peaches:
For the rest of the man date we went to see Robin Hood at the movie theater by the mall…and both decided that we will no longer EVER go to a regular movie at night! Going in the mornings on weekends is $6 rather than $10, and it’s not nearly as crowded. When the movie was over we walked around the mall for a bit before deciding on lunch at…
‘Twas perfect! We each got the small size and it was the perfect amount of food. When we got home we had every intention of fully cleaning the house, but I fell asleep for, oh I don’t know, an hour. OOPS!
Dinner was a HUGE salad!
Tonight was pretty rough for me. At the mall we stopped by Old Navy to check out their swimwear sale…and I think that saying I went swimsuit shopping will probably fill you in on what the issue is. I had to fight off fat talk all afternoon, but tonight it just all came crashing down and we had a tear-filled evening. Thank goodness I have an awesome husband who took me aside and really built up my confidence again…I’m much better now, but this journey is much harder than I thought.
If you’re going through/have already gone through a weight-loss journey of your own, what are the things you remind yourself of along the way? I tried looking at myself in the mirror and thinking about how cool my body is and how thankful I for what it can do, but when I tried to think of that my mind just went blank!
