LOVE a GOOD SuRpRiSe!!! :)

It was an average day… quite ordinary actually…

Pre-run snack – 0

**Ran 5 miles with the running group**  +10

Protein waffle with (defrosted frozen) strawberries – 5    (recipe HERE)

I had 2 servings of cereal during the day – 6

Our kids were out of school, so Carman and I decided to hang out today. We had some computer work to do. I posted a new blog entry over on dietSNAPS. The kids were in and out of the house all morning… riding skate boards, scooters, and just having fun. Taylor is seen here begging Carman for $$ to get an ice cream! YES…. in February, the ice cream truck still trolls the neighborhoods of Houston…

The kids were coming in through the garage and the front door, and somehow kept locking themselves outside. At one point the kids Cyndi’s son Cole rang the door bell. I got up for the 1 millionth time to see what they needed…..

Wow!!!!!!! I saw Cole standing there and it took me a minute to figure out what the heck was going on! He didn’t say anything and was just staring at me! Cyndi poked her head from around the corner to snap the most charming picture of me that you can see here…. 😉  I called out to Carman… “Come here!! You have got to see this!!!”

After that…. we pretty much jumped around in excitement!! So FUN!! I am sooo happy that Cyndi decided to come down for a few days!!

Carman had brought me her new recipe to try! Soooo good!!! (This could be my new lunch addiction… you have been warned)

Stuffed Bell Peppers Over Spaghetti Squash – 5 (She links to the recipe HERE)

Protein bar – 6

We split the cousins up to 2 houses… Older ones at my house, and Devyn babysat the younger ones at Carman’s…

They were excited for movie night!!! Diary of a Wimpy Kid was in order…

I snacked on chocolate animal cookies while preparing a quick dinner – 4

Tortilla pizza – 4

We called up Meagan for a sisters-in-law night out!! We missed the other 3 girls so we took this pic and made it a family affair! 😉

And you *know* we headed to our favorite Berrylicious!!! Love the FroYo! -8

We stayed up wayyyy too late talking and hanging out. Our kids were calling us and telling us it was wayyy past our bedtime! Haha!!!

Have YOU ever been surprised?? Tell us about it!

I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
