Cake cake everywhere

This week has not started off strong at all. I thought I was going to be able to add some cardio to the end of my day, but that hasn't worked out so well.

It just so happens to be everybody's birthday at work this month. Call it spring love, why don't ya. Last week we celebrated by getting together and eating (of course) out at a nice bar lounge. The 2 margaritas, fried calamari, and cheesy stuffed peppers didn't help much either. 

Just look at how thick this cake icing is. Talk about "whoa!" I was a good girl and scraped some off, but for the most part I really did enjoy the sugary flavor. 

And here's another one. My, aren't my coworkers so nice to bake/buy a cake and bring it in for everybody to share? 

And if I decline? Then I look rude. So, I happily took the offered piece just like all the rest of us. Did I mention that this was at 11:00 in the morning? Yup, just getting ready for the day.

Easter Dinner

Always grateful for the friends, family and blessings in my life. 

I definitely didn't hold back on dinner tonight.

Sweet Hawaiian bread rolls, spiral honey ham, veggies, buttery mashed potatoes, topped with brown gravy. 

Did I mention there was cake topped with sugary vanilla frosting and confetti sprinkles? Yeah, today was a good day.

I'm baaack....and so is bikini season

Wow. I can't believe it's been 2 months since my last visit here. A lot has definitely changed between now and then.

First off, my fitness routine completely fell apart and spiraled down the drain. Just as I was starting to feel the results I messed it all up. It always feels better to pin the blame on something, so with that being said, I blame it on work.

I've taken on a new role at my place of employment and it's been draining all of what little energy I have left of me. By the end of the day I just want to plop down on the couch and catch up on my favorite shows. My favorite colleague just got promoted and transferred to another city, while I'm here left to pick up where she left off. It's not necessarily a bad thing, being that I'm slowly strengthening my role by gaining more skills so to speak. But it's definitely not helping my body at all either.

I've been too scared to step on the scale. I'm afraid to see higher numbers staring back at me which will then result to finicky mind games slowly generating in this little brain of mine. 

If my broken routine wasn't discouraging enough, I walk into target and see a wall full of bathing suits. Really cute...and some even sexy bathing suits.

Is it bikini season already?? Where has the time gone?

Starting Monday (because tomorrow I'll be busy stuffing my face with buttered bread rolls and mashed potatoes) I'm finding my inner focus and getting back on track. Until then, I'll be having a really really good "last supper" tomorrow.
