Happy President's Day.....
Monday, February 21, 2011
We woke up to 3" of snow today - so the driveway was calling my name. It's hard to believe that it had been 12 days since I last shoveled. I was a little worried that I wouldn't have it today after doing 100 pushups yesterday - but I did it, and because it was only 3" and I am in much better shape now - it took 15 minutes....WHOO HOO.
It was then off to a day filled with the kids activities as it is the first day of February vacation. First on tap was a hockey game for the little man, then we had to go finish up the bottling of soda, from his GC that he received at Christmas. 42 bottles of Drew Brew are in the house....nope - correction.....37 bottles of Drew Brew, as the kids tore into it today. I let them have what they wanted today - tomorrow - they get met with Capt. moderation.
I am amazed that in the 42 bottles, there are 8 cups of sugar. We all hear about how bad sugar is for us - however to actually see the 8 cups get poured into the container it was scary - and really has made sure I will NEVER drink another real soda again.....
I am very happy with my Coke Zero....although I need to start getting rid of that too. I have done much better in that dept. Before the new year, I would go through a 12 pack in 2-3 days. It now takes me at least a week - so I have cut way back, and really upped the water consumption....that will only get better as it gets warmer too....the warmer it is the more I want water. I have a hard time with water in Winter as it makes me cold, so I have started filling two containers first thing in the morning to come to room temp, so that by the time I am ready for them, they aren't icy.
Tomorrow I am taking my 3 1/2 year old niece and the two boys bowling....will be an adventure.
I leave you tonight with Drew Brew:
