It's a terrific Tuesday night, right?
Tomorrow is Daddy Rainmaker's birthday so you will all have to wish him a happy birthday because he checks my blog during his break at work. Also, the day after tomorrow, the 20th, is my dad's birthday.
If anybody believes in those astrological signs, I basically married a man who is a lot like my dad (astrologically speaking that is).
And if you're reading, babe, I love you! And Happy Birthday! I feel so honored to be a part in celebrating your birthday with our children and family. You are almost 11 years older than me, but I think that I am definitely the one who scored.
And to my dad, I love you too. I'm glad you're feeling better. Thanks for being a good dad and rescuing me when I would run out of gas when I was in college because I was too much of a cheap wad, to fill up that old cadillac all the way. And then I would forget that I was getting low until the car just...stopped. And my dad would come save me (this happened three or four times...what can I say, I'm a slow learner?).
What will be fun is my parents are coming over tomorrow night for a little joint birthday celebration. I just may be baking up a little surprise for my dad who tries (for the most part) to maintain a sugar free diet. I can't say exactly what I'm making because he also reads my blog. Ha! But I have some fun sugar free ideas that just might involve carob chips.
In fact, I'm considering making Wednesday a day of cooking and cleaning in preparation for the birthday parties. Having the kids wrap their gifts and make cards for the occasion.
Well, today went well. I made it to the gym and did a 60 minute back and biceps work-out. I held off on doing any push-ups since that's what caused my arm to hurt last week. I didn't push too hard on my arm work-out, but I did still manage a good work-out. I ran 2 1/2 miles and got in 1,685 calories.
I also weighed Mr. Lovely this morning and he weighs 13 pounds which is 1.4 pound increase from two weeks ago. That to me is proof positive that he's getting plenty to eat despite me being on a diet. I also have noticed that the more water I drink, the greater my milk flow...like today. I got in plenty of water and I've had plenty of milk production.
Oh, my weight actually increased 4/10 a pound this morning, so now I'm at a 6 pound loss in 15 days.
Have a good one!
