Yesterday when I was doing my Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred exercise video (Yes, I'm still doing the Shred even years later, I do it a couple times each week along with some running days as my exercise regime. Sometimes I think I'd like more variety, but I haven't found a workout video that's as good of a work-out for the time put in -- in this case 30 minutes for cardio, abs, & weights!), this was my view during the abs/sit-ups part.
Each time I leaned forward and sat up for the sit-up, I got a wet sloppy kiss right on my face! If you've never had this exercise experience, you are missing out for sure! Dog breath makes the whole thing even lovelier!
I really didn't make any fitness New Year's resolutions, but the fragment above combined with this one will make it seem that way.
Guess who likes to drink green smoothies with me at lunch?
Is there anything Little Girl won't eat, you may ask about my 4 year old (home from Ethiopia 1 year)? Peanut butter! Yep, she doesn't like it at all. But, really I can't think of anything else she won't eat! Recently we discovered that she LOVES grapefruit juice! I'm so thankful for what a great eater she is, I just had my moms' group tonight that is a support group for adoptive mothers and it's more the norm that adopted kids have food issues!
My husband took the training wheels off the 5 year old's bike a few weeks ago. He's actually pretty stable, has gone some very short distances on his own, and seems just about ready to take off on two wheels all by himself. But for now, he does need someone to walk alongside and steady him a bunch. Today, while I was doing that he told me he wanted to do "super fast mode". As in, he wanted me to sprint down the street while holding onto his bike helping him balance! Um, no, Buddy, you gotta wait 'til you're doing this all on your own for "super fast mode". I'm huffing and puffing just through "medium mode".
I saw something this week that quickly became reason #2,248 The Internet has made me a better homemaker and it is an entire website devoted to what's good at Trader Joe's? Don't ask me how much more money I spent on my Trader Joe's run after discovering this website! But the cookie butter? Honestly I don't get the hype. I tried a spoonful straight from the jar and really I wasn't impressed, maybe it's because I don't love gingerbread?
So far, it's the pizza dough, the cereal bars, the Jo-Jos (vanilla, chocolate or candy cane -- all awesome), the chocolate bars, and the Ethiopian coffee that keep me going back to Trader Joe's. But, I have some new stuff I bought this week that I've yet to try, like the veggie sausage patties I'm going to try to slip into my family's Saturday morning breakfast as if it's regular sausage!
Happy Friday, Friends!
