Banana art and Six Flags

A perfect saturday!

I layed in bed at 7am. My kiddo still asleep. DEBATING whether or not to go to the gym….. I laid there till 745. I hit the gym while my kiddo was still sleeping (my dad was home) and got a quick 30minute workout on the treadmill and then the grocery store. ALL before he got up at 900. Not too shabby! (SOOOOO glad I went!)

Before the gym: 1/2 arnolds thin, PB, and banana

After the gym: Pumpkin Pancake


It was perfect, and a Happy way to start the day!

Then it was packing time and off to Six Flags!

This is a huge amusement park here in St lOuis. I havent been in years, and this was my son’s first visit!

We started out by getting a locker for all our stuff and heading to some rides!








A few rides were riden. I let andrew drive!

dont worry, it couldnt crash


my favorite!

 The hospital I work for, had some great prices for the park that included a ticket, parking pass, and free meal!

UNFORTUANTLY, the food that was available: fried chicken fingers, sloppy joes, potato chips, potato salad, and bake beans.

SOOO this was all I got.

Yaya and Andrew
Then THIS was headed our way

 We had to take shelter from the hail/severe storm. So it was the perfect time for a photo shoot!

Apparently he is buds with my dad….lucky.

Then wanted to go on more rides…..

Calories 1800

Carbs 144

protein 70

SOOO. MUCH better than yesterday. And I burned almost 300 calories just at the gym, and who knows how much walking around for 6 hours at the amusement park! YEA!


Later this evening, I was thinking about how glad I was that I went to the gym. WHY do I ever talk myself out of going? I always feel better after. EVen if I only stay 20-30 minutes. I mean who cares how long I am there! At least I went right?!?!

Question for you?

Do you find that you talk yourself out of doing something? (like the gym? eating right? or something else?)

  1. We have a 6 flags, too…we’re heading over in a few weeks – the kids did a reading program at school and got free tix…yeah!
    I talk myself out of stuff all the time…like my run this morning (and every morning this week!) When I do go, I love it…only wish that was enough to make me go!
