I actually exercised.

I know, right? Me. Exercising.

This week I decided I would get some exercise in come hell or high water. It just needs to happen. The problem was finding a creative solution to the "I don't have any time" issue. Luckily, two things kinda fell in my lap, so to speak, this week.

First, hubs and I went to a party at his boss' house this weekend. It was super fun, and one of the things they had going was, believe it or not, a Just Dance II tournament. And I totally won it. Oh yeah. So, I was reminded how fun it is, and I have it at home, so hellooooo?

Second, one of my fave blogs to read is Nerd Fitness. This dude is doing really cool things, and he has a great message. Recently he posted this workout plan, and I knew this was something I could manage to fit in. Also, if you have time, this post is chock full of goodness that everyone needs to read!

Anywhoo, today when I got the kids home, tater tot and I danced for about 30 minutes, and then I did my squats, rows, pushups, and planks while helping the tater with her Cookie Monster counting game. Piece of cake! Needless to say, I'm quite pleased with myself. Just gotta keep it up!

Food-wise, I'm still staying off the wheat and dairy. Dairy seems to give me headaches, and wheat in any large quantity makes me crash hard. I can do a few triscuits or something like that, but I had half a bagel last Friday and descended into a fog for the rest of the day. I was also constipated for two days again -- haven't had that issue since I started all this. So today I was back to it:
6am: Half of a homemade granola bar
10am: 1 kiwi with ground flax seed
12pm: 2 oz pulled pork, onion soup with rice noodles
3pm: dried apricots
6:30pm: 2 oz pork loin, 1/4 cup spinach
8pm: 1/2 cup nondairy ice cream

That's it for me for tonight. Hope all is well out there is blogland!
