Check out My Loot!

I was so excited to win Tricia's giveaway but even more excited when it arrived yesterday. Seriously! Check out all of these goodies!
The kids were pretty darn impressed too. Charlie wanted to know what I had to do to win all of this. I told him I was voted Coolest Mom in The Universe. It's more impressive than saying I left a comment and was randomly chosen. :)
If you haven't checked out Tricia's blog Fight Fat Phobia you must go there and read it. She is an amazing writer and you can't help but like her. I wish she lived closer to Houston. She's just someone you'd love to hang out with because she is funny, quick witted, and genuine. She doesn't put on false fronts and you can relate to her. Her writing talents are being wasted at a bank job. She should be writing for magazines or SNL. I wish her the very best in her weight loss journey. She will succeed. :)
.
Thanks, Tricia, for all of the goodies. I've enjoyed the almonds and popcorn so far. Charlie broke into the gum. And I totally love my Fit n Fresh bowl! Coolest thing since sliced bread.
.
Exercise: Turbo Jam 3T. I think it stands for Totally Tubular Jam but I'm too lazy to go in the other room to check right now. LOL It's a strength training DVD that you can use with a tube resistance band or weights. You can really increase the resistance on the band by stepping wide on it. My muscles were literally quivering after workout. And it felt good. Maybe I'm a masochist and didn't know it.
.
Later in the day I took the kids for a walk to the neighborhood park. Charlie played with some kids there and Rachel and I sat on a bench.
.
Me: Know how to do a tricep dip? Watch this. (demonstrates dip) Ouch! It burns!
.
Rachel: OK. My turn. Ouch!!!! It burns!
.
Me: Good job! Ok, one more time. OW!!!!!
.
Rachel: I'll do it one more time. Ouch ouch ouch.
.
LOL this went on for about 5 dips and we quit.
.
Me: Wanna see how to do a modified pushup?
.
Rachel: No.
.
And so it ended.
.
Walked to the front of the neighborhood . Good place to sit on a rock and think about how mean your mom is for making you walk more than you wanted to. Coolest Mom in the Universe my @ss!
Rachel takes a more zen approach to the experience.
"Mom's butt used to be this wide! Now it's much smaller."
And the happy family on the way back from a 2.76 mile walk. For some reason, Charlie thought he was going to die. Toughen up, boy. :)
Very good day. Stayed within calorie goal and tortured my kids AND got a ton of goodies.

  2. Yay, hope you enjoy everything! And thanks for all the compliments...I do declare :P

    Man, I sure miss living around all that WATER. So much nicer than walks in the boring ol' desert. You and Shelley's blogs always make me miss H-Town!
