I Cheated The Whole Day


On Sunday morning I woke up washed my face, brushed my teeth, threw on some workout clothes, attempted to comb my hair and gave up really quickly, grabbed my cycle shoes and ran out the door. You see If I am working out early in the weekend then I need to stay focused and run out the door or, I will start folding laundry, putting dishes away, and start running my mouth talking a mile a minute ton, my husband. Which, he hears every other word if that.

I made t to the gym and took a kick butt cycle class. One hour and 644 calories later I walked out the gym feeling like I earned my cheat DAY!

Yes, I said cheat day. Now I don’t recommend making this a habit but it was Mother’s Day and I earned the right to do anything I wanted and no questions are allowed to be asked.  PERIOD!

So let’s get to the good stuff. My daughter made me homemade cinnamon rolls and I literally melted when I bit into this deliciousness. She knows this is one of my favorite desserts. This sweet treat is one reason why I don’t mind flying. I will check my bags, go through the security and head straight for my warm cinnamon bun.

I was showered with beautiful cards and a wonderful dinner out. So overall my Mother’s Day was beyond what I could have hoped for and worth every calory consumed.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day and that the people in your life showered you with LOVE.

You could have chosen to read any blog but you chose mine and I’m honored.
