Or, as I like to call it, “The weekend of eating so much that I no longer fit in my pants. (Any of them).”
Needless to say, the headache hit the road early Thursday, and I thus proceeded to celebrate by consuming a LOT of food.
Pizza lunch at work...Ladysmith Wings after work...Good Friday family dinner...Mae’s on Saturday...Sunday Easter brunch out... massive family Easter dinner...and then McDonalds, theatre popcorn, and leftovers on Monday.
Yes. I know. I have a bridesmaids dress to fit into in just a little over a month. I have some serious – SERIOUS – work to do.
And that’s why, today, the diet begins. Again. In a major way.
I’m no fan of “crash diets”, but I don’t really have a choice right now. I’ve been unable to get back on track for over two months. Most of that hard work I did pre-Christmas has been erased, and I can’t believe I let it happen.
Remember when I used to joke about “the water & ice cube diet”? I really think I might have to do that this time. For REALZ, yo. I don’t even think I can even allow myself rabbit food and bark and berries this time around.
The good news is, while I was terrible at eating sensibly this weekend, I did start up a new initiative to get me back in action. It was an idea I’ve seen a few times on Pinterest...A “work out fund” jar.
For each time I walk (minimum of half an hour) or do some sort of exercise (Zumba or Yoga), I put a loonie in my jar. Initially, I thought this idea was ridiculous. Me? Pay, to exercise? That sounds like an even BIGGER excuse not to do it. “Huh. I have no loonies. Guess I don’t have to go for a walk tonight.” I’m lazy like that. And an expert at coming up with excuses.
BUT. It would be fun to one day count up the coin and put it towards something fun, like, say, some Lululemon gear that I always say I probably won’t fit into or can’t afford, right?
I think it just might work.
I managed to toss in $3 this weekend. :)
OK. So. Enough about the work out and weight loss crap. How about we look at some cute pics from my weekend of fun??
Baby Tanner on Easter Sunday in the outfit I gave him…seriously, how cute is he?!?
Our Sunday School kids singing “Jesus Loves Me” on Easter Sunday
Sunday School kids with our student minister Nancy
My nephew Caden & niece Danica in their Easter outfits
My aunt Marion & her grandbaby (and my cousin), Dillon
Dillon wasn’t too sure of those bunny ears…
“They look better on Daddy!”PS – Dillon does not help my “baby longings”…he’s pretty much the poster boy for THE perfect child. Always happy, smiling, cooing, bouncing, giggling…pretty much a magic baby.
Oh, how I want one…
Hope you all had a blessed & wonderful Easter!! :)
