It was a pretty lazy weekend really. We didn't do anything with the kids because they got in trouble for pouring a new bottle of saline solution down the sink earlier in the week so they lost their reward for doing their chores.
We don't go out to eat when I'm on the protocol so we BBQ'd outside since the temps were half way decent (38 degrees in Utah is a heatwave). We didn't eat outside....cuz that would just be crazy!
Calvin is working his tail off to learn everything he needs to know for this new project I was telling you about. Even though he's tired from getting only 6 hours of sleep a night...he's in a great mood and a joy to be around. I mentioned it to him last night and he said he finally feels hopeful about something. I told him that's some Hope and Change that I can believe in! I'm so happy that he's feeling so much better about life in general and I hope this is the beginning of something great for him.
The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. ~ Allan K. Chalmers
Bobbi and I started working on some stuff for Mallory's birthday party. ( can't wait to show you) Bobbi is making something special for the gift bags and I was making her birthday invitations. I realized that I suck at making circles so we ran out to Michaels for some circle making plastic stencils....and then we went to Target because I'm melting out of my clothes. For a full account of what happened at Target....go to my fitness blog for Tales from the Fitting Room. The bad thing that happened at Target is the reason for my confession today.
I cheated on my diet again. Bobbi failed to keep me from purchasing and eating a little debbie Red Velvet cake. She is now fired from accompanying me to the store. Psst...don't tell the people that read my fitness blog. I didn't tell them about my slip up. I didn't feel too bad about the cheat because it was only 100 calories and 17g of carbs and I still lost .4 pounds. But I'm seriously not going to do it again. That was my LAST cheat. I promise.
I also watched the last 4 episodes of United States of Tara that I got from NetFlix. Have you seen this show? I just love it!! It's on showtime so I'll have to wait for the next season to come out on DVD but I seriously love all of the actors and I'm going to miss them so much.
Just like I miss Bill since Calvin cancelled HBO.
