A Good Weekend....


....so this weekend went well. On Friday, I had way too good of time. For the first time in my life, I couldn't actively remember how much alcohol I'd had. I remember everything. Just not precisely how much I'd drunk. Let's just leave it at I christened a couple of lawns on the way home.....but not in the same way ANOTHER member of our party did.... *winks*

....Saturday, I got up bright and early (ok...8...but when you're hungover, that's the freaking butt-crack of dawn!) and gave a feeble attempt at making banana pancakes for the kids. I didn't do too badly, even though they LOOKED horrible! Get the griddle to hot, they burn and are gooey in the middle...not hot enough? you can't scrape them off the griddle! So they looked AWFUL. But Griffin ate SIX of them and Erin had like four or five, so I think I did OK. We then went to Sam's Club and to Skyline Chili. Oh, we also went to the library, where (and here's a shocker for you...) I was the ONLY one of the family that DIDN'T have fines! *self-righteously pats self on back*

...Sunday, I went to church with the family and then went to the gym. I pushed out three miles on the eliptical trainer, lifted weights, and did some push-ups (girlie-style) and sit-ups. Then I took Collin to get his hair cut. And then I went to get a birthday present for a friend, who came over with her family to grill out and hang. I went to the store with said friend, thinking that the Colts were going to lose anyway (not having a good season, we are), and the guys wouldn't have left until it was over. We shop for the leftover necessities and get home, for the guys to soooo rub it in my face that the Colts managed to shit out a win after being down 27-10 with FIVE minutes left in the game. Ooh, I was pissed off.

....This morning, I thought I'd make an attempt to go to the gym to work out again. Am feeling the need to keep up the momentum of working out. Though I suppose if I gained a few pounds back I wouldn't be so desperate for new clothes. But I feel like a slug since I've not kept up the momentum of building up to the black belt test. So I feel the need to work out a bit. Of course, why does it seem like everything takes so much effort in the morning? Now that I think about it, I'd had a cup of Peppermint Mocha yesterday before I went to the gym. No wonder I could keep up so well! Perhaps I need to swig some caffeine if I'm going to work out in the morning. I hopped on the elliptical for 10 minutes and did some ab stuff and then called it a day. What a weenie I am!

Caffiene can get you going, that is for sure. I was reading recently one of those alleged health articles on the detriment of caffeine and it claimed caffeine is the worst thing you can put in your body and that it paralizes your colon. WTF? Caffeine is not what has made me fat. Maybe calories in excess is the worst thing for your body?

It paralizes your colon? I've always heard the opposite (Caffiene can make things "go".) Nowadays who knows what to believe. Although I think as Steph proved, too much beer equals puking. ;)

Banana pancakes sounds yummy!

You should try the upside down pizza. I add frozen spinach and mushrooms to mine when I make it and just use the italian style ground sausage. I also use only pizza sauce instead of some pizza and some marinara sauce when I make it. It's really good. I've thought about adding some artichoke hearts too but haven't tried it yet. You should make it one day and not tell him what it is and just see what he does. Let me know how it turns out if you make it!

I know caffiene is a diuretic... I know this by the number of trips to the bathroom I have to make because I drink too much coffee...
