Fro-Yo is Better Than Dinner


Last night, I ate dinner backwards – as in dessert first. I was in a frozen yogurt mood so we drove out to Yogli Mogli. I couldn’t decide between fruity fro-yo or chocolatly fro-yo, so I went with both.

I always try to keep all my fro-yo flavors separate, so I can taste each one, but not my kids. They like to stir everything up into soupy goodness.

Danny always gets boring fro-yo. (No offense, Danny, but it’s true.) One flavor. One topping.

After eating dessert, I stopped at the Whole Foods salad bar for dinner. I had a salad, mashed potatoes, and pasta.

Tonight is my orientation for the Biggest Loser Challenge, and I think I also weigh-in and get my measurements taken. I am not looking forward to it because I’m sure that I gained a few pounds. And yes, I probably will be complaining about being weighed-in for the next 12 weeks. It’s just how it goes.

Today’s Workout

  • Butts and Guts Class – 60 minutes

It was nice to go back to Butts and Guts class today after missing it last week while we were in the Dells. We did a mix of cardio and strength today using a kettleball and medicine ball. We finished up with some ab work on the stationary balls.

I almost forgot that we’re signed up for a 5k this Saturday. My brother found a race that’s only three miles from my house. He joked that we could run to the race and then run the race to make it a 10k.

My brother is the one that found this race and usually when one of my family members run a race, we all do it. Thanks to my dad for being the DB (designated babysitter) for this race. I told him that he only has to watch the kids for 24 minutes because that’s how long it takes Danny to run a 5k. The kids are also running a 1k at this race. I think that comes out to .6 of a mile. They’re excited! Although, I can’t get them to do the mini muddy buddy. They did it one year, and they have banned the mud ever since. I though kids liked getting dirty?!

This afternoon, I packed a lunch, and we headed over to the splash park. It’s hot here today – in the upper 90s, so it was nice to cool off in the water for a while.

Now, the baby is sleeping and the kids are watching Pokemon, and I’m enjoying a little bit of quiet.

Questions of the day:

  • Any races coming up?
  • Favorite fro-yo/ice cream topping?
  • If you have kids, do they hate getting dirty?
