Brownies are healthy

We introduced our girls to the movie Sandlot over the weekend. They loved it! And now when we call them "Smalls" or have s'mores, they'll be able to truly appreciate it.

I hope all you mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. Scott and my girls spoiled me. I always especially love the homemade gifts. Both my girls made me a scrapbook of drawings they made. It was completely their idea, and it was so fun to see their different ideas. Bean's had a lot of horse drawings - her riding a horse, me riding a horse, and the two of us riding a horse together. The Princess's had a list of my favorite things and some impressive drawings, which made me smile.

Yesterday my little Bean stayed home from school, so there was no pool running for me. She has been sick off and on since January and is scheduled to get tubes in her ears and have her adenoids taken out next week. We're hoping between that and having a break from all the germs at school during the summer, she might have a chance to get healthy.

Speaking of healthy, this happened last night.

Eating dessert, in this case brownies, actually is healthy because it makes me happy and being happy makes me healthier. Win-win.

And I read today that pool running burns more calories per minute than land running. So I'm calling it running fuel.

What's your favorite "running fuel?"

How was your Mother's Day?

  1. See, aren't you glad you found out the calorie burn in pool running? I see more pizookies in your future! ;)

    I hope the surgery helps. Being sick so often is not easy for anyone:( Poor girl! Keep me posted!
