Bah Ha Ha

OK, before you think I just disappeared and decided to stop posting hear me out.  The truth is I have posted but I for some reason closed out the post before I hit the magical "publish" button so none of them showed up.  My post on Friday night was probably better that it never made it on to the world wide web.  I had a morning run that was less than stellar, a day that was mostly eh, followed by a pretty intense night workout that was great.  But of course I posted before the magical endorphins of the nightly workout so when I went back and read the post I sound like Eeore from "Pooh" with a dark dreary cloud over my head.  Once the night was done I was in a much better mood and ready rock.  I knew I didn't have to wake up early on Saturday so I stayed up late getting some things organized in my house and actually got so much accomplished.  It ended up being a hugely productive day even though it started with a ho-hum run!

Then on Saturday I had decided that I was not, absolutely not going to workout.  I really felt like my body needed a much needed break and I was going to get a good workout on Sunday.  I needed a little bit of rest.  So I slept in, 9am, I don't know how much in that really was, I was hoping to sleep until 10:30 or 11 but I guess I was caught up.  I then ventured into the yard to start he work that was waiting on me.  We have had lots of thunderstorms with some crazy wind and I had limbs and stuff all over my yard.  I also had trash all over my yard from a garbage can that lost its lid in the storm and has never surfaced since.  I really thought it was going to be somewhat simple but turned out to be an ordeal beyond my imagination.  I ended up having a broken limb in a tree that had to come all the way down, oh it was a mess.

But I finally got it all done.  Picked up, cleaned up, and burned.  Then it was a trip to town to buy a new garbage can so I don't have to pick up trash again.  Then on Saturday night I got into cake baking mode.  It happens from time to time and I decided that I was ready for fondant.  I have been thinking about it for a while and I was officially ready to take on the challenge.  Let's just say it looks way easier on TV but I was able to do it and it came out so cute!

You probably think this would be a child's cake but NO!  That Superman cake you see is for my Pops!  I was really excited with how it turned out and I learned a lot because I had to roll each piece of fondant out 15 times. 

On Sunday it was time for the mock tri.  My niece and I both wanted a good workout so it was time to test our limits.  But go figure it started to rain and storm again.  Amazingly every single time I put on my helmet it starts to rain.  This time it let up in time to ride the 6 miles to the gym.  We actually ended up skipping the run part because of the weather and instead swam over twice the distance to make up for it.  It was a good workout.

Then we must talk about my eating this weekend.  To say I fell off the diet wagon would be the understatement of the century.  I ate every single thing I could get my hands on.  I don't really know why either.  I always eat ice cream on Sunday nights.  I watch swamp people with my dad and eat ice cream, but this week I ate ice cream twice on Sunday.  Really twice!!!!  Come on Emily!!!!!!

I know better but it is so easy to get off track!  Every time it does go haywire I just have to sit myself down and have a come to Jesus meeting with myself and get back to the way it should be.  The one thing going for me at this point is that my workouts have been good enough to keep my weight on track, just not losing.  I do have a special 20 pounds that I have put on in the last 3-4 months that I would very much like to see go AWAY!!! I know you are all thinking, "Why don't you stop making cake if you are trying to eat good?" But the truth is I rarely eat the cakes that I make.  This week I have made 2 cakes and 48 cupcakes and only ate one cupcake.  There is something very therapeutic about making the cake and smelling it that keeps me from wanting to eat it. 

So wish me luck in getting everything back on track, all at the same time.  Time to get this weight loss journey adventure started back up again.  ( I hate the word journey, Life is a Journey: Weight Loss is an Adventure!)
