Today was incredible. My daughter had a cheer competition. The team did well : ) Today was the debut of her stunt duo as well. She and the other girl do amazing stunts together. I tried to post the 50 second video of their performance today, but couldn't figure it out LOL!! That's OK, as the routine is still pretty rough - she was dropped on her head at one point! Perhaps I'll figure out how to share videos once they get the kinks worked out in their routine.
It was also the debut of the special needs cheer team. They have worked so hard and I'm so proud of them. The crowd was incredible. They cheered so loudly for them. "Simple" forward rolls were met with loud cheers from the crowd and the kids were just beaming.
Amongst all the chaos of the day, our only food options were in the concession stand. I opted for shredded turkey (it was yummy) and some popcorn. Daughter had some leftover nachos/cheese. I HATED to throw them away. I counted the chips so I could track them. Then I remembered advice I've heard - and given - here....better to trash the food than yourself. SO...the 11 chips w/ cheese and my impulse to return to finishing my children's food were thrown away. Small woohoo moments like that add up to increased strength and will power. Here's to strength!!
Speaking of food...this is disgusting....the family got a bucket o chicken tonight from KFC. Hubby got me a grilled piece, but they got the crispy stuff. After dinner was over, I heard him say "mmmm...good chicken". Geesh...he had the daggone KFC bucket up to his mouth tapping the crispy crumbs out of the bottom. THAT is what I live with people! Mr. Anti-health nut!!! He's learned absolutely nothing from me during the past 3.5 years of living a healthier lifestyle. **sigh**
One last note...I very much dislike being cold - which is bad since I want to run. So...today I got my "new to me" treadmill for the winter (I'm borrowing it). I'm off to register for a 10 K in the spring - can't wait - for my first 10K OR for spring LOL!! I know...winter hasn't even begun!! But a girl's gotta have goals - and the 10K is a perfect next step for me. It'll keep me moving. AND you all keep me moving...thanks for your support!!
