Karen - Day 124 - Burbank, CA
I wake up with a smile.
I'm not denying myself anything.
Do I want a chocolate croissant?
Hmmm. Today, I wanted a BBQ rib and a cup of coffee. I don't know why. Maybe secretly I'm a cowgirl. Who knows? But this is what my body wants so I give it to her.
There's lots of laundry and running around to do.
The truth is, I have a 4 year old boy that is constantly on the move. I used to run 7 miles every other day just for a break. I'm not kidding. Throwing on my ipod, listening to grown up music and mindlessly running was the only break I had.
I did not lose weight during this time.
Today I played with my little boy. We ran, we rode bikes, we played superheroes. This is more exhausting than running 7 miles.
Luckily, I have amazing friends, and just about the time I start to lose my mind, one of them swoops in and saves me.
Today, it was Lisa who swooped in and invited us to her house for coffee.
And some of these fluffy cookies.
Borrowed from the internet.
Turns out, I love Meringue Cookies.
We watched our little guys became Superheroes.
This is very serious work.
After they fought bad guys, saved the world and had some snacks, there was a tearful goodbye and a nap in the car.
Lunch was a fresh baguette with cheese and the last 2 ribs.
Dinner was 10 baked sweet potato fries dipped in mayo.
Today I learned:
1. Superheroes are very sensitive and don't like to clean up.
2. Hanging out with a 4 year old is more exhausting than running 7 miles.
3. I wanna be a cowgirl.
4. I like fluffy cookies.
5. Sweet potato fries are my new kryptonite.
