Today was one of those days where I was too lazy to even put my contacts in, so I wore glasses all day long...I had to grocery shop but did I get dressed...NO, I definitely wore sweats...i threw on my pea coat and a pair of flats...Talk about classy! I do what I can! My body is still in a coma from ALL of the food I ate over the holidays!! These were a killer, they did me in...

I do not know why I insisted on making so many sweets! I kept telling myself "Its for the holidays!" yet I ate it all like it was going out of style! I seriously could not stop myself...finally on Sunday I made my sister in law take all of the left over cookies, fudge and chocolates with her to her lab for them to eat!! But I still found myself craving something sweet after they left the house! I guess I am in the detox period and it sucks! lol  The good news is that I am going to try to finally get rid of my baby weight from Luke, I still have 10lbs...UGGGGHH! I was doing well until the holidays!

I decided I need to actually follow through and get rid of the last pounds so I joined a gym last week! I usually would not go to a gym but this one is for women only (so no girls getting all pretty to show off for me, gag me- thank God) and they have child care so I can take both of the boys if need be! Also they offer all the classes I want in my monthly fee! My husband thinks I will not use it, since I tend to not follow through (he's right) but I want to follow through so I can actually wear my jeans the right way! lol I can get them on and over my hips but I cannot button them technically I am not back in them....UGGH! Soon enough...soon enough! I am sure my husband will be excited to see his wife in something other than sweats or jeans that do not fit *talk about sexy*, sorry baby! Anyways it is time to think about fruits, veggies, and working out....yay (shaking my head NOOO)

Speaking of Veggies, I have this AMAZING Broccoli Salad I wanted to share that I made over the holidays...I am obsessed with it and my family loved it!! YUMMMM

Broccoli Salad

2 bags of pre-cut Organic Broccoli
1/2 red onion (diced)
1/2 cup Pistachios
1/2 cup dried cranberries
6-8 slices of bacon (diced up)

1/2 cup light mayo
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

I cannot explain to you HOW GOOD this salad is!! I made the salad again tonight because I was craving something sweet (who would have guessed) but I can justify it...hello it is called a BROCCOLI salad right!!:) 

Until next time...xoxo
