What do you think of our funny Christmas ornaments?
I had my daughter clean out her toys so we can donate what she doesn’t play with anymore (to make room for Christmas and things she will play with).
Some of these toys were so funny, I wanted to keep them around (wouldn’t you?) so instead of starting my own toy hoard we decided to make crazy Christmas ornaments. My oldest daughter is adept with baking clay and I had my hot glue gun at the ready so we created an ornament for each person.
Can you guess which one is mine?
Yesterday I posted a giveaway for a complete set of the amazing Blendtec Total Blender and the Twister Jar for one lucky winner worth over $550! I hope you enter to win–twice! I want companies to know you are interested in their products!
By the way, I am so so proud of myself!
My husband has deemed Friday night “Take and Bake Pizza Night”. Remember the last two weeks how I have gone overboard BOTH times on pizza toppings and then experienced only the slightest loss on the following Monday?
Well vavoom! I am not making that mistake again. While I would give anything for the cheesy goodness of ooey, gooey pizza toppings from my favorite take-and-bake pizza establishment locally, I refuse to deal with that situation of overeating, getting sick and then feeling bad over having too too many toppings. Who needs that? As a recovering binge eater, the last thing I need is to have my way with a large pizza’s toppings.
Now what I had yesterday… First of all, here’s the plan I’m following and here is the introduction post to the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge. While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you can hula hoop with a Cheerio.
Be sure to subscribe for updates by adding your email right (in the sidebar) or through Feedburner in the title bar up top!
You can also click the tab up top that says Mid-Year Resolution for the daily play-by-play and to see what I’m doing. Whee!
Friday, October 5
I ate this:
Lunch: Beverages and Vitamins
Dinner: Chipless nachos from a local Mexican food place (a BIG platter. Trust me, I made up for calories today in one meal!)
Exercise: 2 hours at my treadmill desk at 1 mph. I am making typing errors like crazy today– a good sign I need more sleep! MOAR SLEEP! And more caffeine… or not…
Notes: I think I am getting sick, so I have been taking things a little bit easier. It probably mirrors the crazy Colorado weather patterns.
What I learned:
If it hurts enough to mention it, take aspirin.
You’d think that one would be more obvious, but how often do we talk about something without putting a plan into action? My shoulder really hurts because I slept so much on it, and I told my husband, “My shoulder hurts.”
And then I realized what I would say if someone told me the same thing: “I’m so sorry to hear that. Did you take aspirin?”
Aspirin. So simple. I need to take my own advice.
I will take action first and then state a concern if the action doesn’t remedy the problem.
