Food bombs, shave ice and thingys
After the Mr left, I attempted breakfast...
Yeah, my oatmeal exploded and I was so pissed I threw it all away. There was nothing wrong with it, it was to teach it a lesson. As I was doing that, my egg white frittata kind of got well done. Who was teaching whom the lesson? Then I rallied with my new bowl of oatmeal.
Oatmeal, 1 banana, 1/2 tbsp mini chocolate chips, 1 tbsp cookie butter and 1/3 tbsp of honey. YUM!
The Mr's work was having some family day thing and I could tell he really wanted me to go. Ever since he found out they were going to have a Hawaiian shave ice truck there he wanted me to come get a shave ice with him so I agreed. I looked through the menu...
Standard fare but I always get cherry. We got kiddie sizes and started walking and eating to find some shade from the 90 degree heat at 11am. 1) This was not Hawaiian shave ice, it was a snow cone. Shave ice is truly like eating snow and a snow cone is like eating ice. WTH? and 2) the cherry tasted like Robutussin. I took a few bites off the top where there was only ice and offered the Mr the rest. I felt bad his big shave ice coup wasn't what it was cracked up to be but it was no Ululani's on Maui and honestly, most cherry syrup ends up tasting that way.
Then it was off to have me meet the co-workers and boss. From the second I walked in, people were like "you're the dessert lady! We love you!!!" I make all kinds of naughty recipes I want to try, take a serving and send the rest to the Mr's work and boy do they appreciate it. Every single person who he introduced me to was like "oh my God, I LOVE your cupcakes!" or "thank you so much for sending in treats!" or "do you take requests?" I told them there might be a Christmas in July rush and they lit up. So funny. It was nice to finally see where the Mr spends his time when he's away from me. Since I had a late breakfast, I sat with him in the cafeteria while he ate his lunch. We roamed around a little more and I was on my way. It was a nice way to break up the day and I could tell the Mr really felt proud to show me off. Too cute.
Then it was time for Power 90/ Tone 30 and as I was upstairs changing into my gear, I flipped off the light and in a darker light I saw something that made me do a double take. I have that vertical line trying to form just before your gut decides "oh yeah, there are actual ab muscles under here." I've been working on them more the past 2 weeks and you can't see the line in bright light so I went downstairs and shut off the main lights so the Mr could see if I was crazy or not. He said no, he could see them! Yay! Then as I was dancing around from that, I scratched the top of my shoulder and I had those thingys! That's exactly what I exclaimed to the Mr too...."I have those thingys!" and had him touch them. You know that indent on the top of your shoulder from that bone and then there's a dip and then the head of your bicep? I know what muscle it is but it escapes me. I could feel the indent! It's like the past 2 weeks of more strength training are actually...gasp...shaping things! How about that!?
I am anxiously awaiting the return of my laptop computer Monday. It appears the computer company fixed it so we'll see. Fingers crossed because working on this tablet and sharing computers, well, sucks. (Though I'm very appreciative of the Mr letting me use this wee technological eye strainer.)
There's a big festival in town this weekend and we're not up for the crowds so we're going to drive around and see what we can get into a few towns away.
What are your plans for the weekend? Found any new fitness related 'thingys' on yourself lately?
