Watch Me Loose It

It is offical

Subway and I will no longer be seeing each other for breakfast. As much as it pains me to say that out loud, that is just the way it has to be.

I will still long for his quick and tasty breakfast sammiches. The yummy mesh of bell peppers and banana peppers in a warm flat bread that fills my tummy, on top a perfectly cooked egg white that is filled with protein and that keeps me full until lunch.

And it's all HER fault! She has been stalking my most favoritest foods as of late, and it's really starting to tick me off. I even opted out of having ham on my breakfast flat bread because I KNEW she would be there. And lets just face it. I don't really like her. So image my surprise when I mosey over to the Subway site to find out she likes my egg whites just as much as the Roast Beef!

This is how they both break down.

Okay now looking at those which one looks better? I know right! Geeze. So seeing that, I made the decision to just totally break off my breakfast love affair. I will just have to make it a point to get up earlier and make my own breakfast. Which isn't that bad, because I will in the end save some money, but it still sucks.

Well yesterday was my third 5K of the week. It was a beautiful night for a stroll. And I was really happy that BOTH Anna and Kathy were able to make it. I am pretty sure that these two could make a trip the dentist fun.

(It's a bird...It's a plane...It's Rachel with her IPhone) We took the time to of course pose for some photos. I love that I can totally be myself with these two. They get me, or at least pretend to. :) After all the playing around we still managed to pull an amazing time!

I am not going to lie, keeping up with them was a chore. They both are super fast walkers (so freaking jealous). And I was able to keep there pace for the most part. I did have to ask them to slow down once, but then I pushed through moved past it. I think if I keep training like this I WILL be totally ready for the race on the 31st. It is going to be fun.

I have noticed in the past couple of weeks I have started feeling better about myself. That makes me want to do more with myself. I almost NEVER go to work without my hair and make up done. I just can't. It's a habit that I have had since my BFF Nancy showed me how important it was to YOURSELF. She taught me to be the best ME that I can be. Well somewhere along the lines I have lost most of that. I used to dress up whatever I was wearing, lots of blingy, lots of color, lots of ME. I have started bringing that back a little bit at a time. And it has helped me so much.

I feel better, and I think I convey a happier me. Little by little, I am bringing ME back, and I am lovin' it.

I am looking so forward to this weekend. The family is taking off and heading on a road trip to who knows!

We used to do this a lot when the kids were little and we had more time. Since we moved and our car situation hasn't been the best, we have been staying pretty close to home.

Well about a month ago we got some new wheels. (new to us anyways) So the plans are to pack up the car and hit the road. We have talked about heading to Biloxi for the day. Hopefully stopping by the flea market, and outlet stores on the way. Then making our way to the buffet at one of the local casinos. Now I hear you groaning...But I am ONLY going for these.

Dungess Crabs. They are soooooooooo yummy. But I know that SHE will be there. She loves my crabs more than she loved my Subway. I will just have to outsmart her by drinking lots and lots of water.

Tonight is my eval with Justin. I will let you all know how that goes. Maybe even post some progress pics!
