You may notice a theme here. I think I found my new time sucker, luckily I have no time to browse it but if I did it would be my new pinterest. I am pretty sure I could make my own with me in various situations and sticky notes that explain the life blunders I make on a daily basis. Before I even start elaborating on this dream project of mine… it’s Tuesday trade time! (These are all from Dog Shaming, mine would be Alex Shaming, I swear it would work)
I would trade…. BEC FROM HALF BAKED for winning the PB2 giveaway for more jars my way! Congrats for winning! Please send your address to firstname.lastname@example.org so you can get the goods asap! Man this stuff is so good.
I would trade… the craziness that has been added to this week to a normal level of life crazy. I already came into this week knowing I had two presentations to give, two parent nights to attend, one teacher meeting, one advisory meeting and a colonoscopy to prep for (oh and that working on Saturday from 9am-3 pm grossness) but our staff meeting Monday put a whole lot more on my plate. To do lists have been made, as I said get ‘er done. Only way to do it.
I would trade… the focus on calorie magic numbers to numbers not existing. Lately I have been baffled by how many new products coming out emphasizing the new calorie magic number it has. What makes a 90 calorie bar better than the 100 calorie pack or 400 calorie McDonald’s menu item? Who came up with these set points of calories that now determine everything we eat? Does anyone else get really annoyed by this? Sorry rant but I actually have started to laugh on how much this has become a national craze.
I would trade… my stream of bad luck for a four leaf clover. I mean really people, I seem to have found bad luck and swam in it. Not only has my stress stitch not healed but it has been worse, now preventing me from sleeping. What is it? I seriously have no idea why touching, laughing, MOVING causes so much pain. Add that to a messed stomach and tooth I have to be fixed and you got yourself a cauldron of stewing bad luck. Don’t worry, I have taken all of yours. You could probably jump off a building and fly with all the good luck I am giving away.
I would trade… my epic baking fail this weekend for those ingredients back. Yep, I did it. I tried a recipe and guess what I produced? An inedible explosion product. Go me. But really, I wasted a whole bar of cream cheese, can of pumpkin, a few eggs to produce something I couldn’t even taste. I nearly broke my microwave too. Go figure. Baking is not for me.
I would trade… my indecision around Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp for some self trust. I really want to sign up for her boot camp because let’s just say my goal of strength training has failed, I have yet to step into the gym or do one upper body exercise. Fail. My worry is though, I won’t follow through and let not only myself down but my wallet down. Ugh, I am so indecisive it kills me.
Questions: What would you trade this Tuesday? What is your take on the calorie craze?
