Happy Monday folks! Linking up with Clean Eats, Fast Feets for another weekly review. I’m not sure I “accomplished” a whole lot but I did a lot–that counts, right? It’s a cold one here but thankfully the rain has stopped. Is there anything worse than cold AND rain? Like for two days straight?? So glad to see the sunshine yesterday!
It’s been a busy week–with lots of food. My kiddo put his back out and so we made a trip to the doctor last week (nothing but a muscle strain) and finished the day off with Olive Garden. Haven’t been there in years. Rarely eat pasta–not for any reason in particular but I can find numerous other things to fill my carb macros with! But I ate pasta. In cream sauce. It was divine. My scale thought otherwise the next day LOL. Ah well. The boy is better.
Boy also participated in his first Air Force Color Guard Event so I found myself at a basketball game Friday night. Been a loooooooooooong time since I’ve been to a high school basketball game. As a cheerleader throughout my school years I found myself a bit more excited to watch them than anything else ha! But why do they still make them wear those God awful polyester uniforms????? Haven’t we evolved people? Anyhooooooo–beyond proud of my kid. I didn’t realize all the additional stuff they get to wear aside from the uniform I see him wear and I was all but jumping up and down but contained myself very well on the outside because, well, teenagers. They get embarrassed so easily. He said his heart was beating out of his chest and he thought everyone could see it–I assured him we could not. Such a great experience.
I started a new training program and I am LOVING it! So glad I decided to make the investment in one of the programs offered by John Meadows at mountaindogdiet.com. He puts out a ton of great information and I’ve used his training programs before a few years back. Excellent! He also has a YouTube channel with great videos. I got Omega Sentinel. Highly recommend!
Got my hair did. Went dark again. Just seemed fitting with the weather. LOL just kidding. It’s dark but just because I like it that way. This month anyway.
I actually ALMOST caught up at work on Friday. That just means this next week will be crazy AF.
Went to a Christmas party. Like fancy. Dress, heels, make-up–the whole shebang! Was actually kinda fun to get dressed up and amazing to see friends I haven’t seen in forever. I didn’t drink but had a bit of a hangover on Sunday…I may or may not have tried every flavor of the cupcakes they had for dessert 😀 They were mine cupcakes OK!
Sunday I started making Buckeyes for my cookie swap this week. One of my absolute favorite activities this time of year and I’ve been doing the one at work for…maybe 11 years? So much fun. I was craving buckeyes. My mom used to make them all the time when I was a kid and it’s no secret I am a lover of all things chocolate and peanut butter! I put a little spin on them…a batch of “kinda” healthier, I used four different types of peanut butter and then of course mom’s recipe which only requires like a pound of powdered sugar 😉 Have a few more batches to get to but taste testing will start tonight. Stay tuned! Hoping to share some recipes if they are good–at least I know my mom’s are good–AND I put a secret ingredient in hers—SHHHHHH.
