Did I toe the Weight Watchers line? Ahem. No.
I held out for all of one day, and then I caved completely and ate the purest crap ever eaten by a human being, in too large of portions. Sadly, by the second day I was positive I was pregnant because I was walking about feeling nauseated, and periodically exhausted all day. Yup, welcome to the world of potato chips, cookies, fast food and crap-chocolate. Three days of stupidity.
…aaaaaaand I’m back!
It was not all idiocy on my part, and when I was not having my mini-crashes I was having a darn good time. Out on the sand dunes at Snow Canyon, the walk from the parking lot out to where we were playing was a little over a quarter mile and I felt like I was just swinging over the deep sandy track as I went back and forth to use the bathroom near the lot, it was effortless. Three times in two hours; another reason I mistakenly thought that I was PG. I was the one to go chasing after errant kids, I was the one to hit the pool (lovely heated pool) every time with the kiddos and play the whole time, I was the one who got up the two weekday mornings (I don’t workout/exercise on the Sabbath) to hit the road for four to five mile runs. And about the running, I don’t know how much closer to sea level St. George, UT is from the Valley where I live… but it’s got to be fairly significant. I had SO MUCH AIR! Wheeeee!
I had the shocking experience on the last day of being flirted at (wouldn’t I have to be cognizant of what was going on for it to have been with?)… nay, hit on by some random guy at the local convenience store. I am so used to being the invisible, fat housefrau herding three little kids in stores, that it took quite a bit of effort on his part for me to even realize what was going on. Funny, perhaps I will have to be more on my guard once again.
Nah…. how often am I sans kids?
It was spring time there. I was wearing a pair of Dadguy’s shorts and flip flops half the time. I am sad to be back home, with the lousy air quality, the grey skies, the cold and the snow. Bleah. But I am glad to be back to my routine, my kitchen, and my usual life.
