So, my husband weighed himself on Friday and realized he's gained 19 lbs in the past 2 years. Now seriously, the man is so skinny and built, I have no idea where this 19 lbs is. But, he insists he's gained it and is determined to lose it. So he challenged me to a contest (we love a good contest in my house and always have one going between us because we are both extremely competitive) to see who can lose 19 lbs by Feb 20th. If one of us doesn't make this goal, then the other gets to come up with an AWFUL thing they have to do.
So his idea is that if I don't make my goal I have to put a bikini on, and write "I Lost" on my stomach and send that photo to FIVE people (just so you know A, you will be one of the five). Seriously, shoot me. The thing I came up with is that he has to go get a couples massage with me. Now that may sound fabulous to some people, but my husband is FREAKED out by that stuff. Doesn't want any stranger touching him or anything. I get so jealous of my friends and their spouses that go and get these all the time. So, I think it would be hilarious to go do it. Plus, I get a massage out of the deal, so it's a win/win for me. I get to see my husband EXTREMELY uncomfortable and I get a massage....
So here is the nudge I needed to get back on the healthy eating wagon. I think losing this shouldn't be too much of a problem since I have A LOT to lose. Its going to be harder for him because he's skinny now to begin with. So BRING IT ON HUSBAND!
In other news, we survived our weekend of traveling. It was very hard and frustrating at times, dragging two kids to funeral homes, churches, dinners and long car rides. But considering, my kids did great. They looooooooved staying in a hotel. Though it was awesome and both slept through the night, so that helps. But we were exhausted by the time we got home at 10pm Saturday night.
Unfortunately, A was unable to make it this past weekend for a visit (for reasons I will let her discuss if she feels the need) but she is coming to visit me this weekend instead. So I'm pumped for that.
My husband is taking my kids up north today to his mom's so he can hunt. I get the house to myself for 3 whole days! I'm super excited, but also having minor panic attacks about not having my kids with me. I am going to miss them so much. But it will be nice to have some alone time.
That's all for now...
