It seems that I have been a bit lazy lately. At least when it comes to updating my blog. It’s not that stuff hasn’t been happening. It has, which is why I have been lazy…or maybe it’s just busy. Naw, it’s probably lazy. Or maybe it’s a combination of both. Who knows!
With the beautiful, gorgeous, wonderful weather we have been having, I have been spending some time outdoors. I so much enjoy being outside. Well, when it is not windy. I am so not a fan of Mr. Wind. But I am such a fan of Mr. Sunshine! I wish I could spend even more time in the big, bright, beautiful sun, but it also seems that with the nicer weather, there is more to do – not just with home stuff, but work, too.
And also, unfortunately, there has been more television to watch lately. Darn it.
I know, not good. My family is huge into American Idol, which takes up two days a week. Plus, my ultimate, favorite show just started…Glee! I love, love, love that show. And we just found out that one of our other favorite shows started, In Plain Sight. And then there is also a new show that recently started, Parenthood. That is a rocking show. Very real. Love it. Love watching it with my son. But, UGH, too much television! I really try not to let myself get sucked in, but sometimes, I just can’t help it. Dang it. Stupid shows.
And I am not sure if it’s all the exercising I have been doing lately, but man, have I been craving sugar AND salt. It’s been crazy. At times, uncontrollably crazy.
At work, we have a popcorn machine that is used every day. I typically don’t ever eat popcorn. Ever. But for some reason, the last week and a half, I bet I have eaten popcorn every single day. And my gosh, it is SOOOOO good. Seriously. But I told myself that after this week, no more. Or at least not every day. I probably only eat two cups worth, but still, it’s really not that good for you. Although it doesn’t have butter on it (thank goodness), it is made with plenty of oil! And…..salt. But that’s the best part about it!
Also, once again, I can’t seem to satisfy this sweet tooth of mine. I haven’t gone all out crazy, but I have slipped….a little. Or maybe a little more than a little. So okay, in the last four days, I have eaten a small blizzard at DQ (Friday); my favorite treat at Cold Stone Creamery (Sunday); and a caramel pecan sundae at Culver’s (Monday). I kind of did it as an experiment – or at least that is what I am telling myself. As I wrote about last time, the blizzard wasn’t really "all that" or just not what it used to be, you know. So, I wanted to see if maybe I was losing my taste for ice cream, hence the treats at the other two places.
To my disappointed and pleasure, I am not losing my "need" or cravings for ice cream. The disappointing part was that I still LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the taste of ice cream from Cold Stone. The pleasurable part was that Cold Stone is an hour away from me so I can’t go there every day. As for DQ and Culver’s treats, I can take ‘em or leave ‘em. So, I guess that was a little exciting to know. Neither one of them, which are both located in Alexandria, really do anything for me anymore, which is good. I am so not complaining.
The one good thing with all of this, however, is that I haven’t gained any weight….YET! Actually, I don’t think I will with all the exercising I have been doing. Thank goodness for that, I guess!
