Crazy weather..

This weather is awesome.  I know we probably need the snow and all but I can't help but enjoy myself a little.  Today we spent a good hour and a half at the park.  Kids were wearing short sleeves.  It's crazy.  It definitely does not feel like January but it is really pleasant.

Last night was spent with one child throwing up and two in our bed with Jose and I all night.  Not a good night.  Needless to say, the gym was out of the question for me this morning.  I did end doing 100 pushups and 100 dips in my living room this morning.  I'm hoping to get to the gym tonight as soon as Jose is home.  Please babe???  Maybe some weights?  Intervals?  Spin?

Breakfast today was so goooooood.  A little plain greek yogurt, topped with a little raw oats, unsweetened coconut, and half of a baked apple with cinnamon.  Yum!!!

Gettin our workout on.  He always "helps" me by climbing all over me while doing push-ups.  Thanks dude.  This picture is absolutley sick.  Why does my nose look so big?

We took our lunch to the park.  I snuck in some animal crackers and nutella before we left.  I popped some air popped popcorn and added a little olive oil and sea salt to it.

That's what I snacked on at the park.  Along with an orange.

After my animal cracker/popcorn binge I had a light snack.  Two hard boiled eggs, one ginormous carrot, and a few apple slices.

L chose the dinner menu for tonight.  She wanted fettucini alfredo, sweet potatoes, and asparagus.  I sprayed the asparagus with pam and sprinkled on a little sea salt and then roasted it.  She loved it.  We all loved it.  I made the fettucini with brown rice noodles.  My kids don't even notice a difference.

I had some talapia with sweet potato and asparagus.  Now I want dessert.  But I am making myself not eat it.  :(

Spin at five thirty tomorrow.  Better get my butt there.  PS.....I know I need a new camera.  One day.

Then I did:
Incline bicep curl-15.......finished off with some abs and called it a day.
Breakfast was a veggie omelet made by the hubs while I was in the shower.  Thanks baby.  It was delicious and healthy.

I took care of that sweet tooth of mine by eleven o clock while out and about.  Dark chocolate and dried fruit.

Lunch was really light because my friend brought me over some devilish almond joy brownie thing which I ate most of while preparing lunch.  :)  Salad with egg whites, a tablespoon of dressing, and some tea.

Afternoon snack was whole wheat toast with peanut butter and jam.  I REALLY wanted a bagel but opted for something a little bit healthier.

Dinner is at my in laws.  DD made us homemade bread and soup.  Can't wait.

It's a brand new year!

I'm back!!!  Finally.  We had a fabulous holiday season.  My husband has been home for most of the last two weeks and we have had so much fun just being together and hanging out.  We had a bunch of parties.  Too many.

These pictures are from our Jamberry Nails Christmas party we did for our employees.

Can you tell were sisters?

The "boss" in his Christmas attire.

Me and my twin brother.  People think were a couple all the time.  We do look good together.

We did a raffle and played a white elephant game.  I think it was a little inappropriate for the sixteen year old employee we have but it was fun.  We came home with a "queef-o-nator" and a nighty.  Awesome.  That queef-o-nator made it to my family's white elephant and some fighting went down over it.  My bro ended up with it.  Lucky.

We have made so much yummy food/treats.  And eaten way too much.  But that's what the holidays are for right?  I saw these roasted chickpeas online and made some up.  They were good warm but not so good cold.

Christmas eve we made all sorts of yummy pizzas and I forgot to take pictures!!!!  I got one.  This was the roasted pepper and goat cheese pizza.  We also made a chicken peanut satay pizza, pear and Gorgonzola, salami and cheese, etc.  It was good and will be a tradition from now on.

S'mores cookies were also on the list of yummy things to make.  I think I ate five.  FIVE.  Goodness.

These were so good.  Cranberry bliss bars like the ones they have at Starbucks.  I devoured these as well.

The things I contributed to our New Years Eve party.  Jose couldn't keep his hands out of the dip.

We left cookies for Santa and danced silly till bedtime.  We left out carrots and oats for the reindeer.  And............

Santa came!!!  I look sleepy eh?  Santa brought the girls what they wanted and brought P a new car seat and shopping cart.

But his all time favorite present was his own little box of goldfish he got in his stocking.  He loves "tish".  He was one happy camper.  :)

He planted himself on my booty during one of our parties and sat like that for a good couple of minutes.  It nice and soft.  Who can blame him?

He is just like his daddy and is obsessed with computers.

Now that the holidays are over we can finally get back into our normal groove.  Unfortunately that means waking up early which hasn't happened in about two weeks.  Ugh.

What are your new years resolutions?  Jose and I have decided one of ours is to eat more locally grown food and buy meat from local farmers.  Maybe start our own farm?  We really would if we had a bigger yard.  One day.  If you think I'm crazy go watch this and you won't think I'm crazy anymore.  I have never heard my husband say the f word till this movie.  :)  Haha...made me laugh.

Workout today was deltoids and spin.  Just so ya know.  I'm hoping some normalish posts will be coming.
