About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Workout Disguise

I spent some time with my old friends Oreos and potato chips this weekend. But, I have my head in the game again! How did you all do? I have started speed walking in the hood. I was self conscious before and always felt like I should stop and visit. Wanna know my secret? Slap on sun glasses and head phones and you are now in your workout disguise. No joke! People know you are busy and focused on your workout. You feel almost invisible! Wave and keep on going. You can always bring them a plate of cookies later.:)

Well... I think weekends are for enjoying I may or may not have eaten a bag of mini cadbury eggs by myself... Monday through Friday's are for working out... hahaha

I find the more I work out, the hungrier I am and the more likely to eat "junk". I can eat fruit, veggies & healthy all day and not feel satisfied until I eat an entire bag of Trader Joe's Kettle Korn {no joke, last Monday}.

Love the disquise ;)

Too funny! I do the same thing when I go to our park for a workout...incognito all the way! I got tickled when I saw the picture I used on my post this morning pop up on your sidebar...YIKES!

I always do that too! But that's not uncommon in my neck of the woods, everyone is either on their cell phones or listening to their ipods, especially if I trek into Manhattan, definitely no worries about having to stop and chat with anyone on the streets of NYC! They say eye contact is a sign of aggression here! (hee-hee)
I think I'm going to be in for a 'culture shock' when we move out of New York!

And good for not letting a little diet slip-up become a set back!
You rock!
Love to you, Eileen
