The only clear option after yesterday’s hearty post, is to offer you up something light. Also known as rambles. Also known as me writing whatever comes to mind. Also known as a list.
** I bought Henry and Clara some Lil’ Critter’s Fruit and Veggie gummies at Trader Joes. They’re gummy bears covered in sugar. The recommended serving size for children is 2 gummies. I took that to mean that the adult size serving is 4 gummies, to which I’ve taken the recommended allowance every.single.day. The bottles’ have gone.
Or is it half full?? See. See what I did there. AHA!
** Another amazing Trader Joe’s buy? Sweet Potato Gnocchi! Sautéed with chicken and spinach, this was the perfect winter meal. Sprint to your nearest TJ’s and buy this stuff!
** It rained yesterday. So instead of piling clothes on the kids, running to the car, driving in the rain, running into the gym and being wet and mooshy, we stayed home and I did this workout.
I nabbed it off of this lady’s Pinterest page and subbed in 10 pushups between each exercise. Made for a pretty good workout. Try it.
** Because I can’t leave well enough alone, around noon, when I grew tired of playing Henry in Dr. Seuss matching game (he lets me win), I piled clothes on the kids, ran to the car, drove in the rain and dumped them on Travis’ sister.
Then I ran 3 miles outside in the rain. Time – 23:18. It was wonderful. And so worth the mooshiness.
** I have a confession. We don’t do Santa.
PLEASE LISTEN CAREFULLY – I don’t judge anyone who does. I even get the whole “growing your imagination” thing.
You see – Henry draws “up-ta-saurs” on his coloring paper and tells me that this is the boy “up-to-saur” and not the girl one. I actually think our imaginations might need to be reigned in a little.
Don’t worry – my kids still get presents. We just don’t lie to them about where they came from. (can’t wait for the comments on this one.)
** The better acquainted I come with this blogging community, the more I know that I’m right where I’m supposed to be, doing what God has called me to do. To encourage. To offer advice. To share stories. To teach about fitness. I’m thankful to have “met” each and every one of you.
(Must try to redeem myself after dropping the “No Santa” bomb.)
** Chemicals wreak havoc on my digestion system. I haven’t drunk a Coke or Diet Coke in 2011. I also haven’t chewed gum. When you think about it, gum is a rubber ball that traps all of the teeny food particles in your mouth. Once trapped, you knead the rubber and particles and saliva together with your teeth. That’s just gross.
I don’t think I’ll have any gum in 2012 either.
** Two things that bother me about commenting on blogs (which BTW, THANK YOU for your comments yesterday!) –
1) When you leave a comment and then get every.single.other comment that is posted on that particular post.
2) When you leave a comment on a post and blogger responds, but you get no notification that they did so.
Wondering now, actually, if Lindsay’s List falls into either of those two categories. Hmmm…
** I think that’s enough Thursday rambling. Tomorrow is “Christmas Adam”. Which means there are only two night’s sleep until Santa comes CHRISTMAS!!
(now she’s just being ridiculous.)
**Wanna win a Gymboss timer?? Go enter my giveaway! Ends Friday night!**
QUESTION: Give me one of your Thursday rambles. Anything.
