tuesday ramblings.

Hey! How was your weekend? Yes, I know it's Tuesday.

Mine was good, thanks. We had dinner with Melissa and her family on Saturday! We enjoyed a really yummy taco soup she graciously made us! He family is just fabulous. I mean her kids are THE sweetest! She is also fantastic! :) I NEVER ever thought I would meet and make friends through blogging. I'm glad I was wrong.

Sunday was filled with a wind storm. For real. 35 mph winds with 50 mph gusts?? Hello, allergies. It was seriously so hazy outside. Ew.

In other unimportant news, I want this top.

Since stopping my Elavil, I have seen a noticeable change with my body. I am actually getting results from my workouts and diet (no, I'm not on a diet, I'm talking about healthy eating habits). My cravings for carbs and sweets has decreased and my energy has increased. I go in phases of practically making all of my meals from scratch to occasionally cutting corners and buying packaged items, like Clif MoJo Bars. I went a few weeks eating Amy's Frozen meals at lunch, so I decided to take a break from them and switch my focus back to clean eating. I switched up my workouts as well, I always need something new!

Hahahaha I thought you were going to tell me you ate that cute little critter and then give me the recipe. SO GLAD I WAS WRONG.

P.S. Please join me on the pregnant wagon soon. Your son sent me a telepathic message saying he wanted a sibling. How can you deny that??

Allison said...
