Hey guys! How was your weekend?
I had one of those “what did I do all weekend?” weekends. Mostly, I remember a lot of hanging out with this super serious kid:
On Saturday morning, I went to a hot yoga class, and something horrible happened.
I put my hair up in a super tight bun, spent an hour sweating my butt off, came home and (apparently) violently ripped my wet hair out of the bun. After showering and drying my hair, I noticed it: tons of short little broken off hairs, high up on my head! HAIR FAIL.
So that confirmed my decision to get a pretty dramatic hair cut. I mean, my hair hates being long so much it’s finding ways to cut itself. So this Thursday, it’s happening.
Saturday afternoon, I did something totally weird and out of character: I napped when the baby napped. Whoever thought of that advice is a genius, and I should listen more often.
Yesterday was church, some freelance work (I’m doing writing/editing for a web design company on the side), and some more BodyFlow team teaching. I tried two new tracks for the first time, and although they definitely weren’t perfect, they weren’t a total flop either. I have until December 19 to perfect my entire release and videotape myself doing it in front of a group, so time is definitely ticking!
Which brings us to today—aka Day 1 of my 10 Day No Sugar Challenge!
I spent a ton of time doing meal planning over the weekend, and finally made it to the grocery store at 9 PM last night. Interesting that my sugar-free grocery haul ended up being the most expensive grocery trip in a long, long time. (I think partially because I was stocking up on some pricey specialty foods like coconut butter.)
Also, our fridge could explode at any second.
Lessons learned so far:
—It is incredibly hard to find sugar-free bacon. Totally didn’t anticipate that. I know you can find it online, but I didn’t realize that might be the only way to get it.
—It is incredibly hard to find sugar-free pasta sauce. Actually, it might be impossible. I ended up getting a can of crushed tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce, and I’m going to try to cobble something together out of that for a zucchini lasagna this week. It should be entertaining…
—No but really, sugar is in everything.
P.S. If you’re interested in joining the challenge, it’s not too late! Hop on board! You can join the Facebook group here.
Oh, and I realized I never shared Josh’s newborn/family photos from a few months ago. Here’s a little sample…
Have a wonderful week!
(We’re expecting the dreaded FIRST SNOW tomorrow, so I can’t make any promises…)
P.S. If you’re wondering where the inspiration board is today: given my plan to blog a little less, I decided to do boards every other week instead of every week. I’ll try to make the next one extra inspirational to last two weeks. :)
