Thursday Eats and Yoga

my son had some AWESOME sprinkle pancakes for his birthday, I opted for blueberry/banana pancakes. DELICIOUS

At noon, I had a 1/2 of a turkey subway sandwich with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, and peppers.

I took my son to the pool, so after that I need some lunch! I had three meatballs on an open sandwich, watermelon, and corn

My son had been picked up by his dad (they are going to the lake) so I took a nap! It was AWESOME, except it was cut short. I woke up to go to yoga with my mom and neighbor.

Im so glad we went! It was defiantly what I needed. The only bad thing was, Amy, the lady leading the class. Did A LOT of downward dog poses. Im not a big fan of them. It just feels akward and I dont feel that I get a good stretch.

When I got home, I showered. I WAS SWEAATTTYYY. And I had so much energy! I went through ALL My son’s toys. I had a trash, keep, and donate pile. It felt so good to weed out the toys he is too old for, or are broken!

It was 9pm and I was starving. I hadnt eaten in about 5 hours. So I listened to my awesome sparkfriends and got some protein!

Open egg sandwich. While checking my email.

WOW. Pretty good on all categories today. And this doenst even count the calories burned at yoga! WAHOO!


Surprisingly, I am not that tired. (ITS 1130!!!) because last night I was up till 3am. Nope I wasnt at a bar or out with friends. I was texting. My son’s dad and I were talking about him, their trip this weekend, the past. Basically everything. (hence the reason we were texting for four hours!) I dont know what it means. Or where things will lead from here. Maybe we just needed to talk. have closure. or become better friends, so we can work together to take care of our son. Or maybe one day we will get back together. Who in the world knows (well GOd does) thats why I have been doing a lot of praying.

Many of you have been there through EVERTYHIGN that has happened. (well at least what I have time to blog about haha) . But I want to be honest what is going on in my life. At the moment, I just know that God is guiding me. I can feel him here, because I just have this sense that Everything Is Going To Be Ok. (whatever that my mean haha)

Now I am off to bed, with the hopes of no text messages and sleeping in late!

Question for you:
what is your favorite yoga pose?


Well today I didnt get one moment to rest. and as a result, I was a crabby ** not nice person.

It started off with breakfast…like this….

then I put it all together YUM

Egg. Banana. PB. sandwich. It was awesome

Then my son and I ran all around town dropping off invitations for his bday. Then to get our pictures taken. Each year we get pictures together.

This was several years ago….they grow up so fast! ill share as soon as I get them in a few weeks!

Then it was STRAIGHT to get my nephew and to bread co to have lunch with people from work. My friend Jessica is moving to South Carolina on Sunday. I will miss her. She is such an awesome person.

Home to put the baby down for a nap, while my kiddo played in the pool and sprinkler

I found his sticking his hair in the water, I was laughing while trying to get a picture

Dinner was made and served. Meatball sandwiches, watermelon, and salad. And birthday cake for dessert.

I didnt get a workout in. I could have after putting the kiddo to bed. But I was CRABBBBBYYY. I was biting everyone’s heads off. Im sorry family!


I absolutely love helping others. I love watching my nephew. Visiting with friends is something I really enjoy. But I am being stretched too thin. I am always telling people I can do things for them. I love to help others especially those really in need.

But Im not taking care of me. I ate 2000 calories today and didnt get a workout in. I watched my nephew even when I didnt have a moment to really do that. I delivered all the invitations, even though Andrew is having a joint bday party with another kindergartener.

I am also emotional because my son is turning 6 tomorrow. Which I am SOOO excited about (ok maybe just a little) but also a little sad that he is growing up so fast!

(he wanted an M&M cake for his 3rd birthday)

But to add salt to the wound, he is leaving to go out of town with his dad tomorrow. Which means I will only have him for half his birthday. I have never missed ONE birthday. I have been there for him each and every day.

(at his 3rd bday party)

So I am upset that he will be gone. I am trying to think of things to do while he is gone. And having time by myself is good. But after about a 1/2 day, I want him back. (is that selfish?)

They are also going to the lake for the family reunion. This is a reunion I have attended for several years. It is still hard that I am not going to this. I miss the fact that the family I once thought I would be apart of, is no longer going to happen. (yes I know its been two years. )

Well tomorrow I have plans for a birthday breakfast and a new lego for his birthday present. Even though I only have him for 1/2 the day, I hope I can make it a good one!

OKKKKKKKKK enough venting.

Question for you:

For your birthday, do you make a big deal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
