I just seem that way with my lack of blogging and facebooking as of late. I've just been crazy busy. Yeah, I know. Excuses excuses. It's all I got and I have a ton of them. The biggest is, of course, my youngest, the Grumpybutt, and his unfortunate decision to drop his morning nap. So now I have a narrow 2 hour window to get everything I need to get done in the day (work wise -- don't I sound so busy). And then I run into the, "I'll blog tonight." and then "Oh, crap! I forgot, I'll do it tomorrow!" as I'm already in bed and snuggled warm in my blanky.
I suck. I know. I swallow too. Dirty minds. I *innocent face* was of course talking about food and beverages. Sheesh people, this is a family blog. *chortles* I am cracking myself up over here.
Anyways. I digress (yeah, I know, what else is new?)
So, I've been on a huge walking kick. I'm up to about 4 miles a day and it takes me about 48 minutes or so to do it. That's about a 12 minute mile. I drop 3ft off at school and then the Grumpybutt and I start walking. I'm already up and dressed to take 3ft to school so it's nice to just walk and get it done, out of the way, and anything else I do is bonus. Which is crawling around on the floor after the Grumpybutt, wrestling with 3ft, and doing sit ups. *glares at my stomach roll* Why won't you go away?
I've been doing pretty good eating wise. I'm not the intake slave I was. I eat when I'm hungry, I don't eat when I'm not. But when I am hungry I eat what sounds good. Whether it be a bowl of Raisin Bran Crunch w/ almond milk (my new addiction), jamaican banana bread (my newest creation -- which is just banana bread with rum, coconut, and lime added to it), or a cupcake or something perhaps not as good for me.
I'm still losing the weight. Perhaps not as fast as I was but then it never really was about the weight loss that was just the added bonus. I just want to be healthy and active for my kids. I figure as long as I do that my body will get where it's comfortable at. Which is good enough for me. My husband already tells me how beautiful and sexy I am (I'm thinner and healthier now than the day we met 10 years ago), and I feel beautiful, so that's all that really matters to me.
Can I get an amen?
