Ok, I know this is only exciting to me, and most people hate hearing about this, but I'm saying it anyway. Eric and I are officially halfway through Whole30, and completely through what I anticipated as our biggest hurdle - an 8 hour car trip, and Easter at my in laws in Ohio.
Since I got my long run done on Friday, thanks to spring break, I had a "free" weekend. Saturday, I did 24 minutes on the elliptical, then went to Body Pump (weight lifting to pop music) for the first time in forever. OUCH.
Before the trip, I reunited with an old friend.
It had been so long! I did 32 minutes of intense intervals, sweated out a gallon of water, then showered, put on sweatpants, and headed up to the Buckeye State.
We actually made the car trip a little faster since we didn't have to stop to order food anywhere! And something I NEVER imagined seeing in my lifetime occurred. My beloved husband formed a glorious union with my beloved black coffee.
|That. is. hot.|
Now, we are at my in laws, which is pretty much like staying in Willy Wonka's factory, plus extra Easter candy. I suspect that it just seems shocking to me because they are actually able to keep candy in their house, and not just eat it all the day they buy it (unlike myself). I have been in numerous other homes where this is the case, so there's strong evidence that they are the normal ones. There are like 17 Reese's eggs laying around, plus one of the GIANT Reese's eggs, and if you know my husband, the fact that he is resisting is nothing short of an Easter miracle.
|Just a tiny piece of what we're dealing with.|
Luckily, my MIL is amazing and bought us enough vegetables, eggs, sweet potatoes, and meat to feed a small country, and we even got to pretend it was spring and grill veggies and salmon outside. Of course, now it's noon and the outside temperature feels like 29 degrees, so my run should be interesting!
After some family time, it was finally the moment I'd been impatiently waiting for (for like 6 months). And it was totally worth the wait.

in each episode.
As much as Eric loved hearing "that's NOT how it happened in the book" 84 times while we watched, I was super excited to nerd out and gchat with Kara about the book/show discrepancies this morning. And by this morning, I mean after I woke up at 10am. I love spring break.
