Gym, Mini Golf, and Lunch

Good afternoon! I am happy to say that I woke up today feeling much better than yesterday! It seems like the stomach flu is going around here because another lady at my gym was sick with it, and now poor Jacob is sick.

Breakfast

I picked up a few of these Quaker oatmeal cups over the weekend (mostly because I was too lazy to make my own) and they are delicious!

So far I’ve had the cherry pistachio, summer berry, and peach flavors. I love all of them. I usually stick to my Kashi Go Lean cereal but these are great for something different or for a treat on the weekend.

Today’s Workout

  • BodyPump – 60 minutes
  • Plank #27 – 3 minutes and 12 seconds
  • (Yesterday’s Plank #26 – 1 minute and 30 seconds)

My normal plank time is back!

Since I was feeling better this morning, I headed to BodyPump at 9 am. I realized after the warm-up that my back still is 100%, so I made sure to take it easy and lift lighter weight than normal. It was nice to be back!

After the gym, I took the kids for a quick game of glow mini golf.

They had a lot of fun, but I have never heard two kids argue so much about how the other one hits the ball. Jeesh. I told them that it wasn’t the mini golf championships and not to worry about how the other one hits the ball, and to just be quiet and play fun mini golf!!!

We only played a quick round because we decided to go meet Danny out by his work for lunch. We went to Go Roma, and I had the pizza and salad combo. I didn’t get a good picture because the lighting was bad, but the salad I had was wonderful.

I had the Pear and Walnut salad and it came with baby greens, fresh pear, goat cheese, seasoned walnuts, dried cranberries, and aged balsamic vinaigrette. It was soooo good. I have only had goat cheese a few times, and I am not a huge fan of it, but I really liked it on this salad. It has such a nice creamy texture.

They just put a Yumz Frozen Yogurt in next to Go Roma, so of course we had to stop there afterwards.

But eyes were way bigger than my stomach because I could not finish all that fro-yo. I was really into the Reese’stoday…

We said good-bye to Danny, and then stopped at Hobby Lobby so I could pick up a few things for Easter. I let the kids pick out a wooden object to paint. Jaden picked out a box and a “J”. Jacob just got a “J”.

They love painting and for only a few dollars, it keeps them busy for a while.

Weight Loss Wednesday

I have decided to skip weight loss Wednesday this week. My eating has been all over the place with getting together with my family over the weekend,  Danny being home on Monday, spring break with the kids, and being sick.

I know that if I get on the scale, I won’t be happy with the number, and I don’t feel like dealing with that. I know that my happiness shouldn’t be based on a number on the scale, but if you want me to be completely honest, it is.

I’ve worked hard to lose 30+ pounds, so seeing any weight gain discourages me. Right now, I am working on getting to my goal weight and then will work on maintaining that number with a 5 pound plus/minus difference.

I also know that this will be a hard weekend with Easter coming up. I had just started to lose weight last Easter, and I remember eating really good that day. It seems that now that I have lost weight, I give myself a little slack…maybe too much slack.

I still have about 13 days left in the Fit Fluential DietBet, so I’m not too worried. Next week will be crunch time!

  • Are you doing anything fun during spring break?
  • When’s the last time you went mini golfing?
  • Do you like goat cheese? Favorite cheese?

Furby and Coconut Fun

Weight Loss Wednesday

Well, I weighed myself for the first time in a week this morning. I was a little nervous because I ate a lot during Thanksgiving week. Weighing myself helps keep me accountable, and I know that if I don’t weigh myself, my weight will slowly creep up again.

Also, even though counting calories is time-consuming and a pain at times, it really helps me feel in control. When I don’t count calories I feel out of control and am more likely to overeat. It’s like getting on a plane and not knowing where your going – you’re not in control of the situation and you don’t know whether to bring shorts or a winter coat. Does that make sense?

Maybe not the best analogy, but counting calories and protein helps me feel in control of my eating. I usually don’t count calories on the weekend, but I really need too because I know that’s my biggest eating challenge.

Back to the scale. I did gain two pounds, but I feel like that was too be expected with the Thanksgiving holiday. And it could have been worse. Two pounds is not the end of the world. Three maybe, but not two. :)

We did go out and get frozen yogurt yesterday, but I made sure that it fell into my daily calorie range.

I don’t deny myself treats, I just make sure that I don’t go overboard. Sigh. I wish eating wasn’t such an issue for me, and I could just be one of those people who could eat what they wanted and not worry about it. Oh well. I am who I am. :)

Today’s Workout

  • Elliptical – 16 minutes
  • BodyPump – 60 minutes

Since I’ve already met my pile on the miles goal, I decided to switch it up this morning, and did the elliptical for about 16 minutes before going to BodyPump. I’m thinking about going to yoga tonight, but sometimes I’m so unmotivated to leave the house at night when it’s dark and cold outside. We’ll see!

Furby Fun

I have a confession to make. I bought Jaden a Furby for Christmas. No, that’s not the confession. The confession is that I bought him the Furby so that I could play with it myself.

When I showed Jaden the Furbies a while back, he said they looked cool. So, I jumped on the opportunity to buy him one for Christmas. I had a Toys R Us groupon deal, so the price wasn’t horrible. I figure that he’ll play with it for 3-4 days before he gets sick of it and then that Furby will be all mine!!

I figured at age 30 I’m too old to ask for  Furby for Christmas.

Furbies came out when I was young, so I’m feeling a bit nostalgic. And they’re so much cooler now. You can shape their personalities by how you treat them and play with them, and you can hook it up to your iPod or iPad. I don’t care – I’m excited for the Furby.

Reindeer Run

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned the Reindeer Run 5k coming up in December. It’s funny because my stepmom called me up last night and asked if I wanted to run the race with her. Unfortunately, Danny has his once a year inventory at work that morning, and Jaden has an allergy appointment (and Saturday appointments are hard to get), so the timing just doesn’t work out. But I would  have actually done it because the weather is supposed to be a high of 54 degrees on Saturday.

I hope my stepmom still runs it though because it looks like fun! :)

Coconut Cracking

I finally got around to cracking open the coconut that I won from Matt’s blog awhile ago. I realized that I had no idea how to break open a coconut, so I started out by slamming it on the counter. Danny told me to knock it off before I broke the counter. Fine.

So, I took the coconut outside and pretended like I was stuck on a deserted island and  had to break open the coconut to save my life. I did this by smashing it on the cement. The kids loved it.

I finally got the coconut to crack open (and made a mess outside in the process.) Once I cracked it, Danny opened it. I tasted the water, but didn’t enjoy it. I think I waited too long to open the coconuts because one coconut was starting to get rotten.

Have a great day!

Questions of the day:

  • Do you have any races coming up?
  • What was your favorite toy as a kid?
  • Ever crack open a coconut? Ever been stuck on a deserted island?

Daddy Daughter Dinner

Yesterday’s Workout

  • 6.45 miles – treadmill
  • 15 minutes stretching

Yesterday morning when I went to the gym, I only planned on running about 3 miles to get ready for my 5k in a couple of weeks. But I felt really good, so I ended up completing a little over 6 miles. I really feel that since starting the Biggest Loser program that my running has began to improve, and I am hoping to PR at the upcoming 5k.

Running is a struggle for me and it always has been. I enjoy it, I’m just a very slow runner. But since starting the 5k prep with the other Biggest Loser contestants, I have really begun to push myself. Before whenever things felt too tough, I would give up. My mind always quit before my legs. Now, I try to really push myself.

I still have very tight calves which cause problems, but I wear calf sleeves, foam roll, and use the massage stick.

Daddy Daughter Dinner

Back in May, my dad gave me this card as a 30th birthday present.

A lobster or crab leg dinner at any restaurant I wanted! Awesome! So, yesterday was the day that I redeemed the card for my birthday dinner with just me and my dad.

We went to Bob Chinn’s seafood restaurant in Wheeling, Illinois.

We started out with mai tais because my dad said they are awesome, plus you get to bring the cool tiki cup home.

We also had some delicious garlic rolls. Talk about garlic - if you love garlic then you’d love these rolls.

Next came the best part of the night – crab legs!! This is only my second time having crab legs, and they were every bit as awesome as I remember. Actually, these crab legs were better than the crab legs I had at Joe’s Crab Shack.

The crab legs with the butter is so amazingly delicious. I actually had to help my dad finish his crab legs.

It was a very nice dinner, and I’m glad that I was able to have a dinner alone with my dad. We see each other a lot, but rarely do we spend time alone with just the two of us.

When we left Bob Chinn’s, my dad saw a SuperDawg drive-in restaurant next door. He was very excited about it. I, on the other hand, have never heard of SuperDawg in my life. Apparently, it’s a popular restaurant in Chicago.

After a delicious dinner, we met Danny and the kids at Bamboo Spoon for some frozen yogurt. The weekend isn’t complete without a little fro-yo.

They had pistachio fro-yo!

Today’s Workout

  • Workout with the Biggest Loser contestants – approx. 50 minutes

We didn’t have a Biggest Loser workout today since it’s Labor Day, but about eight of us met up this morning to workout together anyway. We did a little bit of cardio and we all brought our own weights so we could do some strength training.

After working out, I picked up Danny and the kids, and we met my dad and step-brother for breakfast. I had cottage cheese, peaches, toast….and one of Jaden’s chocolate chip pancakes. I know that I have been eating out a lot this weekend, but tomorrow is back on track.

After breakfast, Danny and I went to get new phones. We weren’t planning to get smart phones, but somehow that’s what we ended up with. Darn salespeople…

Actually, it will be very nice to have a smart phone. And now I feel like I am part of 2012 instead of 2004 with my old school phone.

Later this afternoon, we’re going over to my brother’s house for a cookout! Have a great Labor Day!

Grilled Veggie Wraps and Weight Loss Progress

Yesterday’s Dinner

Last night for dinner, I made grilled veggie wraps.

Using a grill pan on the stove, I grilled red and green peppers, red onions, carrots, and zucchini with a little bit of olive oil.

I used a multigrain tortilla spread with a bit of garlic hummus. I added my veggies on top and rolled it up. It ended up being too many veggies for one tortilla, so I used another one. Each tortilla is only 60 calories, so it didn’t really break the calorie bank.

Delicious! Next time, I think I’ll add a bit of feta cheese.

After dinner, we decided to hit up Yogli Mogli for some frozen yogurt.

I am back on track with healthy eating, so I made sure that fro-yo fit into my daily calorie count. I don’t think it’s “bad” to have a treat everyday, I just make sure that I’m not going over my calories by having a treat.

I usually estimate the calories in my fro-yo because I’m still not sure how to figure out the calorie count of the toppings – ummm…a spoonful of chocolate chips, a dash of graham cracker crumbs, strawberry slices, boba balls, three cheesecake bites, and a squirt of chocolate sauce. (my fro-yo toppings are all over the place).

Today’s Workout

  • BodyPump
  • 1.25 miles walk outside with the kids (aka – a slow walk)

I didn’t go to BodyPump on Monday, so it was nice to get back to it today. Oh, and I forgot to mention that Danny was soooo sore from going to BodyPump on Friday. He could hardly walk all weekend. It was slightly humorous to watch him so up the stairs. But I feel his pain, so I only laughed in my head.

Today’s Breakfast

Weight Loss

I thought that I would share a before and after pic of my weight loss so far.

Not the best pictures, but you get the idea.

I will take my next picture at the final weigh-in of the Biggest Loser in September.

Questions of the day:

  • What’s your favorite way to eat veggies?
  • Do you like hummus?
  • Any big plans for the day?

Walking, Skateboarding, and Chocolate

Yesterday morning after breakfast, Danny and I took the kids to a local trail and walked for about two miles.

Two miles is about all Jaden can handle before he throws himself on the ground in defeat, moaning that he can’t possibly walk another step. We’re usually right next to the car when this happens.

Afterwards, we dropped my niece off at home and visited with my mom, brother, and sister-in-law a bit. Then, we took the kids to a skate park. Jacob has been skateboarding for about a month, and he is really into it.

I get a little nervous bringing him to the skate park because there’s usually a bunch of teenage boys there, and he’s just a beginner and I don’t want him to get in the way. I’ve seen those kids fall and it’s not pretty.

There was a handful of teenagers skating when we got there yesterday, and I told Jacob just to make sure he didn’t get in the way and to do his own thing. One of the kids skating was very nice and said that the kids were fine and offered to move so they could go down the ramps and stuff.

I feel like you don’t often come across teenagers that are so nice to little kids, especially when they’re kind of invading their space, so I very impressed with this kid and how he acted towards Jacob and Jaden.

Later in the afternoon, we met up with my family at Bamboo Spoon for some frozen yogurt. I ate really good yesterday, and made sure that the frozen yogurt stayed within my daily calories. Although, I usually have to estimate the calories in the toppings.

His and hers fro-yo:

After eating our frozen yogurt, we walked around the stores for a little while. My dad wanted to take us to this little chocolate cafe where they serve awesome chocolates, coffee, and chocolate martinis.

Sitting in the martini room:

Look at these chocolate! Aren’t they awesome?!

Awesome, but expensive. $14 for eight little chocolates. We didn’t buy any, but we stared longingly at them for a while.

My step-mom mentioned this girl scout 5k to me a while back, and I forgot about it until I saw an ad for it in the new Competitor magazine.

When you cross the finish line, you get a box of girl scout cookies! How cool is that?! Bring on the thin mints!

Questions of the day:

  • Do you ever exercise with your kids or significant other?
  • Ever come across a person that was not what you thought? I expected those teenage boys to be mad about the kids being in their way, but they proved me wrong.
  • Ever been to a chocolate cafe? What’s your favorite kind of chocolate?
  • Favorite girl scout cookie?

Bamboo Spoon and A Little Shopping

I tried to sleep in this morning. I really did, but for some reason my body thinks it’s necessary to make up at 6:35 am the day after the doing Muddy Buddy when all I want to do is sleep all day. Oh well, at least there’s coffee. Plus, sometimes it’s nice being the only one awake in the house. That doesn’t happen very often.

Yesterday

Yesterday, we had big plans to try out a new frozen yogurt place that just opened on Friday in South Barrington.

Bamboo Spoon! I had high hopes for this fro-yo and thankfully it lived up to my expectations. Their frozen yogurt was amazing – it was one of the most flavorful yogurts I’ve ever tasted. Danny’s favorite flavors were the birthday cake and red velvet cupcake.

That was my first time trying red velvet frozen yogurt, and I couldn’t believe how good it was. We will definitely be re-visiting this place…a lot.

I had raspberry pomegranate, sugar-free strawberry, and birthday cake frozen yogurt, topped with strawberries, blueberries, snickers, and Nerds. I was so excited to see that they had Nerds – it’s one of the candies that I always steal from the kids during Halloween.

The kids loved their frozen yogurt too. They always get a few flavors and toppings, and then stir it all up into a big frozen yogurt soupy mess. Ahhh…to be a kid again. I actually like keeping my flavors separate and wish the fro-yo cups came with little dividers.

After eating our yogurt, we walked around a bit, and ran into a farmer’s market.

Everything looked so delicious, and the prices were awesome, so I got a few things. Brussels sprouts, two apricots, an apple, a pear, a peach, and a pluot for under $3.50!

We also stopped by The Victoria’s Secret Pink store, and I tried on the cutest hoodie with angel wings on the back. I pretty much fell in love with it, and then checked out the price tag – $68.00! I dropped that hoodie like it was on fire. $68? For a hoodie? Now, I like clothes as much as the next girl (namely sweatpants and hoodies), but I can’t justify spending $68 on a hoodie.

(Source)

It wasn’t even like it was a fancy piece of clothing or a nice pair of jeans or shoes. I go to the gym, and then stay home with kids all day. That hoodie would have been spilled on, sweated on, and spit up on. I feel like if you have the money for the hoodie, then go ahead and buy it, but I think the money could go towards so many other things…like going out to dinner.

Yes, Danny and I are going on a date night to dinner tonight. I guess I could put that money towards the hoodie, not food that I’m just going to eat and then it will be gone, but I’m really excited to go out to dinner. Plus, it’s the whole dinner experience and being with my husband that makes it worthwhile.

I keep getting emails and Facebook posts from Bonefish Grill about their new lobster roll for a limited time only. I finally couldn’t take it anymore, and decided that I needed that lobster roll. (I’m such a sucker for advertising.) Luckily, my dad said he’d watch the boys so that Danny and I could go tonight. Thanks, Dad! I think I’m as excited about that lobster roll as I was about the hoodie.

Have a great Sunday!

Questions of the day:

  • Do you spend a lot of money on clothes? What’s the most you’ve spent on one item?
  • What do you splurge on? Clothes, food, hair products, make-up, etc?
  • What’s for dinner tonight?

Frozen Yogurt Success

Cheribundi Cherry Juice Winner

#25 – Victoria Klingonsmith  Please email me at runeatplay@hotmail.com with your shipping address!

Yesterday

Yesterday afternoon, we dropped my car back off at the mechanic with a note explaining that the air conditioning still doesn’t work and left the keys in the night drop box. Hopefully they fix it fast because today I have three kids at home all day without a car. And my kids have lots of energy and hate being cooped up all day long.

Not having a car also means no BodyPump this morning. That’s sad, but I still have my Biggest Loser workout tonight.

After we dropped my car off, we took the kids to a nearby fest with a carnival.

Jaden forced Jacob to go on some rides with him. Jaden is more of a risk-taking daredevil, while Jacob prefers to keep both his feet on the ground. But Jacob sucked it up for his little brother and went on some rides with him.

Jacob did love the bumper cars though.

Then, they played some games, and Jaden won a goldfish. Joy.

That goldfish ended up costing me $20. Of course, we don’t have a fishbowl, so we had to stop at the store and buy a fish bowl. And fish food. And some kind of drops to put in the water so the fish don’t suffocate. And another goldfish for Jacob. Geesh.

Their names are Power Up and Shell. Totally normal goldfish names. Jaden’s original name was Fish, so Power Up was an upgrade.

Then the lady at the store where we were buying the fish stuff told my kids that goldfish can live three to four years. What?! She better hope that our carnival goldfish lives for three years or my kids are going to be pretty disappointed. Although my yoga instructor did have a goldfish that lived for 10 years and eats frozen peas…Go figure.

I could be wrong but I think this booth sells fruit punch…or maybe it’s lemonade?

After hanging out at the carnival for a bit, we met up with my family at Qdoba for dinner. I had two veggie tacos and a naked taco salad. Naked as in no taco shell.

Later that night, we met up again with my brother, sister-in-law, and niece to try out another new frozen yogurt place in South Elgin. What can I say? I have a fro-yo addiction.

This place was called Spirels, and it totally made up for the so-so frozen yogurt the night before.

The kid’s favorite flavor was root beer float.

I had butter pecan, mint chocolate, and strawberry frozen yogurt topped with lots of peanut butter cups and Skittles. I love Skittles but putting them in fro-yo was a mistake. They froze making them impossible to chew. Jaden and I had to pick all our Skittles out.

It was very good, and I would definitely go back, but it’s still quite a trip from our house.

Baby McCutie Fro-Yo Face loved hers.

After frozen yogurt it was around 9 pm, and we took Baby McCutie home with us to spend the night because my brother has to work early this week, and it worked out easier just to have her come home with us.

It’s about 8 am this morning, and all three kids are still sleeping. This rarely happens. It’s like Jaden has super sonic ears, and the second he hears me get out of bed, he’s right behind me, following me downstairs. Then, he announces the order everybody woke up in. Everyday. Thanks, Jaden. I was wondering who woke up third today.

I think they’re giving me a little bit of peace right now because without a car it’s going to be a very long day…

Questions of the day:

  • What’s the best thing you ate this weekend?
  • When was the last time you went to the carnival? Favorite ride or game?
  • If you have kids, do they wake up early?

Frozen Yogurt Fail

Last Night

I love weekends that aren’t jam-packed with things to do. Our weekends are normally so busy, that’s it’s nice to have a relaxing weekend without any commitments. (Well, besides my car problem, that’s not relaxing). Yesterday, we spent the day lounging by the pool, then we had a delicious dinner and went out for frozen yogurt.

Danny cooked everything on the grill last night (except for the watermelon!). I had maple tamari salmon, grilled broccoli, corn on the cob, grilled pineapple, and watermelon.

It was the perfect summertime dinner. It was the first time I’ve ever had grilled pineapple. Danny put the slices of grilled pineapple on his burger with BBQ sauce and said it was amazing.

After dinner, we went out to try a new-to-us frozen yogurt place. It’s a little bit closer than the Yogli Mogli we usually go to.

It’s called Yoyo Land, and it looks like it’s in an old train station. It’s located in downtown Wheaton.

The fro-yo was okay. It was a small place with limited flavors. The toppings were in candy jar, and some of them (like the peanut butters cups!) were melted into chocolately soup.

I know that it was extremely hot outside, but I was disappointed because I really wanted peanut butter cups on my frozen yogurt. Instead, I got a mix of chocolate and NY cheesecake with a variety of toppings. I’m not sure why I added peanut M&M’s because I know that I don’t like cold M&M’s. I think I was trying to make up for the lack of peanut butter cups.

They also didn’t have any fruity flavors of yogurt, which was also disappointing because I usually gravitate towards the fruit fro-yo flavors. The yogurt was good, but not great, and I probably wouldn’t go back. After we were done, I was sad that we didn’t go to Yogli Mogli. At least we tried a new place.

After eating, we walked around downtown Wheaton for a bit, and then headed home.

We don’t have any plans for today, except for dropping my brother’s car off to him. It should be a nice relaxing Sunday, which will be nice because our next few weekends are busy. My niece’s first birthday is coming up, Danny and I are running a 5k, and we have the Muddy Buddy in a little less than two weeks.

Questions of the day:

  • Do you have any plans this Sunday? Any important events coming up?
  • Have you ever looked forward to trying something and then were disappointed?
  • What’s the best dinner you’ve ever made or ate?

Fro-Yo is Better Than Dinner

Yesterday

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?

Legally Blonde

Good Monday Morning! Spring Break is officially over, and the kids go back to school today. I can’t help but admit that I am giving a tiny sigh of relief. I love my kids more than anything, but sometimes even Moms need a break.

Yesterday

Yesterday afternoon, Danny and I went to see Legally Blonde!

Danny really liked it, and there were actually more guys there than we expected. The show was so funny, and I really enjoyed it. The theater was pretty small, so even though we were seated towards the back, we still had a great view.

 

I believe that the movie is rated PG-13, so the musical was along the same lines. Every time something “grown-up appropriate” was mentioned, the little girl next to me would turn to her mom and ask what it meant. I can’t say all the words because this is a family blog, but one of them was another word for a women’s chest. The mom seemed good-natured about it, and I thought it was funny. But I would definitely recommended this show for ages 13 and up.

After the show, I started to feel a little bit sick. I had done about 76 million squats the day before, so my body was so sore and tired that I couldn’t walk up and down the stairs without going very slowly. Then I started to get the chills and was convinced that I had a fever, even though Danny said that I didn’t feel warm. So, what did we do? We went out to eat dinner.

We stopped at Go Roma near The Marriot Theater where the show was playing. Go Roma is a semi-fast food Italian food place. You place your order at the counter, and then they bring it out to your table. I had a half a salad and a half of a pizza. I wasn’t too hungry, so I ended up eating about half of it.

The best part was the 100 flavor Coke machine.

This was my first encounter with the machine, and I could have stayed there and played with it for an hour. There were so many choices! The best part was that they have tons of options for non-pop drinkers like me. There were a bunch of Powerade and lemonade flavors. We ended up going with raspberry lemonade.

On the way home, I spotted a Yogurtland. I have heard so many good things about Yogurtland, that there was no way I could be right next to one and not stop.

I had strawberry and cheesecake yogurt, and Danny had red velvet cupcake batter yogurt.

It was good, but I honestly like Yogli Mogli better. I think because I loved their pistachio flavor, and I haven’t found that flavor anywhere else yet.

We picked up the kid’s from my mom’s house, who was watching them while we were out and headed home. Thanks, Mom!

I still wasn’t feeling good, and I was extremely tired. I went to bed at about 6:30 pm last night, and woke up at 7 am this morning. I don’t think that I have ever slept that long in my life. I guess my body just really needed the sleep. I feel a lot better this morning, just a tiny bit sore.

Later this morning, I have my first physical therapy appointment. We’ll see how it goes.

Questions of the day:

  • Have you ever seen a play/musical? Which ones?
  • What did you do this weekend?
  • What’s the longest you’ve ever slept?
