A Sketchy Situation

A Sketchy Situation

A few day ago, I mentioned the situation we had where a stranger tried to get my kids to go into his car. Well, it turns out that our police report wasn’t the first one. There have been other reports of a man with the same description and same car trying to get other kids in his car in the surrounding area also. Scary.

And the last report was just yesterday of the man stopping two young girls to see if they wanted a ride home. So, a police detective called us, and asked if we could bring the kids into the police station to work with a sketch artist.

I wasn’t sure how much the kids could really help, since they didn’t see the man for very long, and he had a hat on. Plus, they can hardly remember what they ate for breakfast, so I wasn’t sure how much they could remember, but the detective said that any information could help.

So, last night we went to the police station with the kids. Did you know that all the police sketches are done on the computer now? Crazy. They don’t use a pencil and paper anymore, like I was expecting. Instead, they pick different body part images off the computer to make a composite.

The kids did good, and hopefully their description will help a little bit. The detective said that since there have been quite a few reports, they’re trying hard to figure out what this guy is up to and are going to be making the public aware of these creep.

I am so happy that my kids did not get anywhere near that guy’s car. Needless to say, they won’t be playing outside unless I’m out there. They understand that there are some “bad” strangers out there, but I don’t think they fully grasp what that means and what could happen.

The kids did so good at the police station, so we took them for frozen yogurt afterwards.

Today’s Workout

  • BodyPump


I was pretty hungry after BodyPump, so I made two pieces of toast with peanut butter, egg whites, a few blueberries, and a pineapple Chobani Greek yogurt.

I hadn’t had the pineapple flavor before today, and it was really good. I love how thick and creamy it is. When I was younger, I never used to like chunks of fruit in my yogurt, but now I love them. I love the yummy pieces of pineapple, and the plump cherries in the black cherry flavor. It almost makes you feel like your eating a dessert.

Biggest Loser

Tonight, I have another nutrition seminar for the Biggest Loser program followed by the 5k prep. I have upped my calories a bit to around 1500 daily, but my scale hasn’t budged in a while. I am pretty much stuck at one number and go up and down a few ounces every day.

I don’t think the workouts are a problem, because we are always changing up the biggest loser workouts so my body is always being challenged. My two biggest struggles are weekend eating and taking bites of the kid’s food. I always write down those bites and add up the calories, but they’re usually bites of not very healthy things – pizza crust, animal crackers, cookies, etc. Oh yeah, and I eat too much frozen yogurt.

I’m hoping that I can figure something out, so I can get the scale to move again.

Questions of the day:

  • Ever been to a sketch artist? Ever been arrested? I’m nosy….
  • Did you workout today?
  • Do you ever steal bites of your kids/husband/significant other/neighbors/stranger’s food?
  • Do you have any food struggles?
