The 3 hour diet, a winner, and a big jump

Wednesday, I started gearing up to start a diet.  By gearing up, I mean I loaded myself to the gills with everything that I'd probably not allow myself to eat once the diet started. .(Yes- I know that is ridiculous logic!)   I'd set yesterday as the start date. Around 8am I announced on facebook that the diet had started.  By 11:30am I was foraging through the cabinets for any scrap of chocolate I could find.  After lots of digging I found about 20 chocolate chips in a Ziploc bag shoved in the back of the cabinet.  They looked like they were at least a year past their prime.  "No problem," I thought. "I'll just get a giant spoonful of peanut butter and bury the stale chocolate chips in there to disguise their staleness!"  It was all very pathetic.  Very tasty, too, but totally pathetic.  Then since I'd already "blown it" I decided that I might as well eat the leftover pizza in the fridge (leftover from my great two day loading phase!) since by all means, I couldn't let it go to waste.  I had also decided that during this diet, I was going to stop drinking my beloved Diet Pepsi's cold turkey.  But I had to wash the peanut butter and pizza down with something and water just didn't cut it.  So I guzzled a few DP's.  So all in all, I only lasted about 3 hours on this diet.  And just to further prove that I really wasn't motivated to do anything at all good for my health here, we topped it all off with Krispy Kreme donuts this morning.  Oh well, there's always tomorrow (or next week, or in the New Year...)

I also want to say thanks to everyone who entered the final retreat giveaway!  It was my most successful giveaway ever- so thanks for sharing it with your friends.  The winner of the huge, super crazy giveaway is...

Cassie!  I am so excited that Sadie drew out Cassie's name.  Cassie's 2 year old son just celebrated a year of being cancer free!  I can't imagine being the mom of a child battling cancer.  I will be so happy to send that box of happiness to Cassie to help her family celebrate this huge milestone! (If you'd like to read her family's journey through childhood cancer, you can read their Caring Bridge site HERE)

One last little thing...  Noah wanted me to put this picture of him up.  He's really proud of how much air he got on that "big jump".  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
