This has been my demise (well part of it) the past 72 hours. A snack mix version with oil and a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch— it’s delicious!
Yesterday was wonderful family time. We drove a few hours away to celebrate my wife’s grandmother’s 92 birthday. It was a baseball theme with half the family being Cardinals fans and the other half rooting for the team they beat. There were tons of people and 4 generations present. It was really special. The family has over 120 first cousins so it’s rare these days that many of us can get together. After the party we met one of my wife’s best friends since childhood and enjoyed pizza and amusement park rides with all of our kids.
Today I mowed the lawn while my wife filled water balloons and then we watched the kids enjoy a fight with them.
As some of you begin Whole 30 tomorrow I am planning to begin watching my carbs again. I need something to get me back on track. I’m going to eat lower carb until I’m back around 230 and then do another round with the shakes. I also need to get back to the gym. I have no excuse to not get there this week.
In other news- I’ve gained more followers not posting and gaining weight the past two weeks than I did all summer!
