Today's challenge: There's SOOO much to do today, and it's going to be tough to get in the work-outs.

Actual fitness: My abdominal routine.

Note on picture: This is shrimp Alfredo. Something we cooked up in seven to ten minutes. 1 1/2 cups is only 220 calories.

Note on weight loss: I was thinking that changing how I weighed myself yesterday may have registered a gain. I weighed myself after I ran a 4 mile run and had drank a few cups worth of water. You wouldn't think I'd gain after running, but it was something different that I did. Or we can just blame the monkey...that's more fun.

And The Winner Is...

Good morning to you all.

Today you get to find out which Bomb pop tasted better. Was it Schwan's or was it Blue Bunny. I did want to mention, though, that, unlike those chocolate covered creme filled bismarks, the nice thing about both bomb pops is that they are so low-calorie, I could eat four before I started to worry about gaining weight off of them. The Schwan's Bomb pop is 45 calories, and the Blue Bunny is 40.

Well, I've put you all off long enough. I've waited for three hours now for some video footage to upload and it won't finish uploading which leads me to wonder if it ever will.

The winner is Blue Bunny. (I know that was so anticlimactic)

Yes, I am happy. I went grocery shopping last night and picked up two more boxes. That's when I noticed that Blue Bunny also makes Bomb Pops in different flavors besides the classic red, white and blue. So, yes, I did pick up one of those new flavors.

The one I picked up was called "Volcano Lava-hot cinnamon" flavor. Have you ever heard of such a thing. cream.

I suppose I should taste it before giving one to one of the kids. If I know Blue Bunny it will be hot and it will taste great. Ahh...suddenly there's so much to write about.

Also, for those who don't know, tomorrow is my birthday. I've declared, like what Lil Miss Blogger did on her blog, that this week is Sunshine Mama's birthday week. So, everyday I've been doing something special.

Last night my 20-month old son said, "mama" for the first time and I also had the kids practice singing "Happy Birthday" to me.

Tonight my husband is going to take the kids out "birthday shopping" for mom.

Also, I'm not making birthday cake for my birthday. Sorry, SunshineMeg, no frosting tomorrow. But what I am making I'm really excited about because it's healthy--ier and I can't wait to eat it.

And if I ever do get that dratted video to upload, I'll share that with you too. I know, you guys are bummed because you wanted to see Sunshine Mama in action eating these bomb pops.

All I can say, is if Blogger had a phone, they'd be getting a call from me.

Happy Tuesday! Enjoy it. The sun is shining.


  1. The big day is coming! Birthday fever is here! I knew Blue Bunny had it in the bag too. Enjoy your day = )

  2. Hot Cinnamon Popcicle - sounds terrific!

    The other night I was watching Chefs vs City (Food Network) & one challenge was to eat this big ol' bowl of ice cream...the best part was the flavors - scotch bonnet citrus & mexican hot chocolate (w/cayenne) sound so interesting! I love spicy so the idea of cold, creamy & spicy just intrigues me.

    Happy Birthday week!
    My 26 month old son will only call me mama at night when he is supposed to be sleeping. :( Any other time I'm dad. How unfair is that? lol

  3. You never cease to entertain me. I find you so hilarious!

  4. Happy Birthday!

    What are you doing today for yourself?

    The Hot Cinnamon bomb pops sound interesting and I definitely want a full report.

    I can't believe NO frosting. It makes me a bit sad, but if you like the cake and the kids are all warmed up to sing, no one will care about the cake.

    Actual Scale mentioned mexican hot chocolate ice cream, which my friend has made and it was yummy.

    Happy Birthday....

  5. hmm. i can't say i'd be tempted to pick up hot cinnamon ice cream/ice pops? i was never a fan of those "red hot" candy things, or big red gum.

    congrats to blue bunny for the victory! ;)
