Thinking Out Loud

Good morning! I know I’m a tad bit late on Thursdays are For Thinking Out Loud but clearly we do this every day of the week–at least I do! Thank you to Amanda over at Running With Spoons for hosting! Some random thoughts and things…

It’s Friday!  I felt like yesterday should have been Friday but I guess you’ll have that.  I changed my check-in day with my coach to Thursday and since it’s been Friday for so long it just felt like Friday!  Now that I am in full off season mode and had a bit of time to digest the “I quit” mentality, I figured it’s ok to talk about it.  I struggled–a LOT to quit.  I didn’t really quit, but in my head I did 😦  Too many life changes, financial BOMBS, health issues and my son really wanting to make a trip home for the Holidays just kept making me feel like it wasn’t the best time to think about ME.  Bodybuilding is just a hobby.  It will be there next year.  It can only benefit me in several ways to give my body more time off…more time to grow cuz….FOOD ha!  In 14 weeks I managed to drop 22–yes TWENTY-TWO lbs.  Yikes.  I tend to get a little…fluffy in my off season time and every year I say I’m going to do better…stay tuned!

Enough of that.  Have you heard the guy sing the Subway song?  About a turkey sandwich?  I swear I can’t remember the last time I ate at Subway but hearing him sing about a turkey sandwich had me feeling some kinda way yesterday!  I think I was just hungry.

On that same note…Biscuitville in  Pawley’s Island, SC.  I’m going to need to make a road trip there if I see the chicken biscuit with spicy pimento cheese commercial on television one more time LOL!  The crazy thing is I hardly watch TV.  We have basic cable but I like my news.  Yikes I sound like my father.  Growing up the news was on every morning and every night and I complained and sighed really loud and now…………..I do this.  Funny how life is eh?  Some people don’t like to watch the news (it is rather depressing at times–especially lately) but I like to know what’s going on in the world–and I’m getting old and watch the weather 😀

I won a thing!!  I never win.  Thanks to Aria Adamy, I won a Lil Buff Protein Cake Mix gift card.  You can find their website if you click on the their Instagram link or Aria’s–and some great recipe ideas.  And don’t forget to check out my Instagram while you are over there if you haven’t already.

I have some great shots of my fun photo shoot to post from last weekend too!

I have a HelloFRESH gift card sitting on my desk.  Has anyone tried this?  I’ve tried one of these services before but I don’t remember which one.  Unfortunately, as a family of two, ONE of us being a very HUNGRY teenager, there was enough food for one…on the family plan!  That “one” was not me.  I know what you were thinking–see above reference to fluffy offseason 😉

And on a final note………..my A** hurts.  I started a new training program last night.  I knew when I left the gym I was going to be sore.  #winning

OK I’ve rambled enough.  Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

  1. I’ve tried Hello Fresh! It was pretty good. They actually did have enough food I found. I think they have dish options too now so you aren’t stuck with their set menu. If you really hate something you can sub it out. It didn’t make me hate dinner time much less though. You still gotta cook it lol

  2. As a family of four, we’ve tried another company similar to Hello Fresh. I think it is the perfect portion for me but for two hungry kids (one teen, one tween), you need to size up on the meal. Also, we had the kids cook the meals, so this mama could sit on the sofa with her feet up. LOL.
