My mom came over last night and brought over the pictures from my dad's surprise party. I love how they turned out! I won't bore you with tons of them, but here are a few favorites:
|Someone asked my dad something about the 60's... haha!|
|My little brother Nathan, my dad, and my older brother Brian|
|My siblings, my kids, and my parents|
|Me and my siblings|
|Love this picture of Noah!|
I'm going to keep this entry short, because I am still not done packing, and we're leaving for the airport at 6:00 AM. Did anyone happen to catch Dr. Oz yesterday? Chris Powell was on there--I love him!! He's a trainer that helps people with massive weight loss. I originally saw him on The 650-lb Virgin documentary, and now he's on Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition.
Anyway, he said something that completely struck a chord with me yesterday. He was talking about his diet regimen (eating high carb one day, and then low-carb the next, for 6 days a week). You get one "free day" per week where you can eat whatever you want... as long as you don't bring it home with you.
This is genius! I know it's so simple, but 90% of my overeating is AT HOME. I don't even think I would have the urge to binge outside of my house. I don't binge in public, so this makes so much sense to me. Anyway, he actually talked about a few things that are new to me--which is rare. Most weight loss advice we've all heard 1,000 times over; but he had some new, interesting info.
Today I went out for coffee with Renee and Jessica again, and Jessica suggested that the two of us run the FULL marathon in Detroit next year! I really want to do it, and having someone to train with would be fun. So I think we're going to do it! :)
Jerry and I are going to bring the kids to my parents house now, and then next time I write, I'll either be in Arizona or back home. I'm bringing my computer so that I can hopefully blog, but I don't know if I'll have internet at Sarah's, so we'll see.
