Dallas and I went on a much needed date last Saturday night.  We went to the Cheesecake Factory (which was divine) and we spent the most money than we ever have on dinner- $84.  FOR TWO PEOPLE.

I bought two pieces of cheesecake for myself (and to share with the sister in law) and I made them last for FIVE DAYS.  This has to be a world record.

I've only worked out one time this entire week.  Once!  And I haven't even missed it.  Running is making me angry.

I cried so hard reading this blog this week, that I had snot running down my chin and my husband was worried I would need to be committed.  I also laughed just as hard as I cried at different parts.

I'm pretty sure my kids are the funniest kids on the planet.  Case in point:  "Mom!  I finished all of my chocolate ice cream!  Can I have a treat now?" -Annie

I've been trying, and failing, at only eating one treat/day.  I blame it on the cheesecake.

I haven't been in love with training for a spring marathon- even though I don't mind winter running.  I'm ready for some greenery in my life.

Is it possible to go through withdrawals from a TV show?  Because I'm pretty sure I'm having them since Downton Abbey ended.

Speaking of- I actually started to like Mary towards the end.  Say what?!

I want to trade in my speed for endurance like this guy.

I took a 2 1/2 hour nap on Wednesday.

I have a secret drawer....
New Year's Resolution FAIL

Shhhh!  Don't tell my kids.

5 days you made a cheesecake slice last! You are being too hard on yourself lol. It is ok to have treats, and it sounds like your are in much moderation. I have only worked out once this week too :(, but tomorrow will be two. I can imagine the training is hard in the winter- kinda why I did not push to do the Ogden Marathon. Confession- not really- I decided not to do any triathlons this year because I don't want to get burned out. I want to stay in love with "training" because I really do love it. Focus in the running with a little biking- it is awesome for the endurance and strength huh!

No way I could make cheesecake last that long - I'm in awe of your self discipline!

Glad your foot is feeling better. Hope you can get back to running soon.

Now that we all know your secret, it's not much of a secret anymore.

I am almost done with the second season of Downton Abby! I only have the finale left!

I love those moments when I realize how clever and cute my kids really are!

Cheesecake would not have lasted that long at our house! I miss Downton Abbey too!

LOVE Downton Abbey!! And I totally loved Mary by the second season too--I even started to love Edith, and I hated her the first season! Amazing show :)
