I've Got the Cure

If you've been around for any length of time at all, you know I have an incurable sweet tooth. I'm talking my dream day would be cake for breakfast, a cookie while the boy naps, dessert after his bedtime. No amount of sweets is too much. (Notice how most of those involve the boy sleeping or being otherwise not there. What kind of role model would I be if I taught my son eat like that?)

Well... I thought that sweet tooth was incurable, anyway. It turns out I found a cure! I have several friends who kept talking about Beachbody (yep, the CIZE kick I've been on) and Shakeology. They went on and on about how it kept away their cravings for sweets. Ever the skeptic, I ordered some, not believing at all that it would work for me and my sweet tooth. There was just no way. I couldn't imagine blending something, taking the time to make it everyday, or that it would taste good. BUT, I just had to know.

Shakeology
What's in my cup? You guessed it! A shake!

So it came in. I tried it. It was good. It took less time to make than seemed possible. I didn't crave a cupcake in the afternoon. I didn't eat cookie dough after supper. I'd have it for breakfast and be good to go for the day. If I had regular breakfast, I'd have it for lunch or an afternoon snack. It definitely doesn't mean I'll never eat a cupcake again (I certainly will--and I have) but I don't want to eat cupcakeS (yes, plural) all day, every day!

Want to cure your sweet tooth? Let me know! I'll tell you more about it and help you get started!

BTHO Eugene!

Lots of our friends have gotten married over the years. We've been in many weddings and made many new "friends" for the weekend. We usually end up friends on Facebook or something similar, and then within a couple of months, I see their name and can't remember who that is or why I'm friends with them. (OK, maybe it's not quite that bad.)


Other times, it turns out we like all the same TV shows, the same College Station college-style delicacies, and we really connect, get to know each other, and become friends. The latter was true of Sam. In the eight years since we met in our friends' wedding, we have developed a friendship. She passed away yesterday after a hard-fought battle with her nemesis, Eugene. Take some time to read her story, laugh with her, cry with her, and pass it on.

Pile It On

This week will be a wee bit crazy. I managed to sign the boy up for a camp in the morning and a Bible school in the evening without noticing it until it was too late to do anything about it. I'm considering it a win, though, because I'm teaching his class at VBS in the evening, so the morning will be some nice me time.

Matching

I can do my CIZE videos without tripping on Lego people or stepping on a little boy dancing next to me. (He happens to be really cute when he dances next to me, it's just not conducive to me getting the whole workout done. Have I mentioned 4329648974234 times on Facebook yet that it doesn't even feel like a workout? Contact me to order yours!)

I'm also slated for jury duty this week, a meeting at the boy's school, a board meeting for an organization I work with, several deliveries to the new house, a meeting at church, and some fun Purpose Box stuff. Luckily, one thing I've learned in my plate over-filling days is when to delegate or say no, so I actually have things kind of in check.

Although, about that me time...
