24 Day Challenge / Day 18 & They say confession is good for the soul..

on March 22, 2013

I have a confession to make~  At the last minute honey came home in time for me to rush out to Zumba (not even half way thru my dinner)…I grabbed one Thermoplus and excitedly out the door I went.  I worked it let me tell ya!  Came home, completely full of energy, wondering “what can I do productive around the house to release some of this energy?”.. 1st of all, let me say I will never take another Thermo that late and 2nd are you sitting because here’s my confession..the only productive thing I did was TURN THAT WONDERFUL FEELING INTO POO…I made the huge mistake of making brownies from scratch yesterday!!  (Honey and I are getting away for the the weekend…FIRST TIME IN4 YEARS so I made the kiddies something special)  While packing said brownies for the children to have over the weekend I ate the accumulation of probably 2 pieces.  HOW DUMB AM I?  No, you know I do not deprive myself of such things but TWO PIECES..AFTER ZUMBA?  I spent and hour burning 500-900 calories to come home and eat brownies? Ugggg

NOW, to really top it off…MY SON WOKE UP @ 530 AM sick this morning!!  I could hear him coughing while I worked but then when he came out and said, “I don’t feel good, I haven’t slept all night”..I thought Oh Lord, please don’t make me stay home I’ve gotta trip w/ honey (granted honey isn’t excited like I am because he’s got so much “work”..which is why we’ve GOTTA GO) Y’all pray for my enthusiasts as he is about to go be sick at school while I go play at the mountains (I’m such an awful parent!!)
