Valentines Thursday, Feb 16 2012 

My Valentines was great!  My husband and I also celebrated our 14th year of marriage.  I cannot believe we have been married for so long.  It seems like it was just yesterday.  We have come along way in our marriage and in miles.

This was my Facebook post yesterday.  Side Story-Last night at midnight as I was making a Valentines box and candy and cards for Gavin to take to school today.  Ashley and I were talking about what we were doing at that moment 14 years ago.  I think we were both trying to shake some nerves, thinking about what the next day and the future was going to hold.  We have come along way!  So instead of making rice bags and worrying about how the flowers were going to look and how it was all going to work, we were helping our youngest get ready to celebrate this day that means so much to the two of us.  Amazing how life changes!

My honey cooked dinner for us last night.  We had spaghetti with meat sauce and french bread.  It seems like everyone here got either Godiva or Whitmans chocolate.  Needless to say my morning at the gym was rough.  I think it was all the pasta and chocolate.  I just wanted to sleep and so did my legs.  It was nice to take a break from clean eating and just let loose a little but I paid the price.  It just shows that what you eat can and does affect your day.  It also didn’t help that I didn’t have my daily banana….. 🙂 There must be a monkey or two living here, I cannot keep those things in this house.  All in all, it was a great day.  Honey and I are going out this weekend to celebrate and pick out our gift together.

I hope you all had a wonderful day filled with love:)

Now to prepare for tomorrows workout.  Running!  Oh and with my new Nike Sensor too!




It is SNOWING! Thursday, Jan 12 2012 

Yep, you read that right.  It is snowing here in Kansas.  I am so happy.  Why am I so happy?  Because when we moved here everyone said “you’d better get ready for the snow.  It comes in December and doesn’t stop until late January or end of February”.  Well, this is the first “real” snow.  It did snow a little before Christmas but not enough to speak of.  I am hoping for a snow day! 🙂

On another note, my friend and awesome neighbor brought over the ultimate Eat Clean Diet crusher today.  She brought us some Valentine cupcakes.  Now, I didn’t eat a cupcake but I did take a small nibble.  They are awesome.  If you get the chance and are interested in her work, you can check her out on Facebook at Major Cakes!  She is a super talented baker!

Don’t those look delicious?

On another note.  Remember how I told you last night that I had attended a Body Pump class?  Well, let me just say that I am feeling it today.  I continued through and went to step this morning and let me tell you, I struggled through it.  On a positive note, I actually added a set of risers today and was able to push through til the end of the class on them 🙂   Now I am trying to decide whether or not to take tomorrow off.  I am really sore today but I don’t want to miss a day.  My husband (Marine) says it will be ok to go to class tomorrow unless I feel like I can’t.  Well that doesn’t help me at all.  I need him to tell me it is ok to skip a day……lol.

Until tomorrow, have a great night and if you live in the mid West, stay warm………! 🙂
