Was feeling like a sloth on Day 30 of The Melissa Gorga Experiment.
I had received much more sleep than usual the night before thanks to my wonderful husband getting up with the baby, but somehow I was still tired in the morning.
(And of course when it’s his turn for night duty, the baby only gets up once. Typical.)
My two-year-old still had a fever so she had to stay home from school. Argh.
We decided to make cookies. I ate roughly a 1/2 cup of the raw dough. YUM!
Then I ate about 5 bazillion cookies once they came out of the oven. Okay, not really 5 bazillion. But like 5. And they were large oatmeal chocolate-chip cookie with walnuts.
THEN I had two of the cheesy biscuits from dinner last night. (I overeat when I’m tired.) They were not as good reheated.
I felt so gross after eating all that. I just wanted to take a nap. But as luck would have it, when you put one child down for a nap, the other one must wake up. It’s like a universal law or something.
So now that the baby was up, I decided to change how the day was going. I don’t think Melissa Gorga would sit around on her butt eating junk all day long. I put on my workout clothes and did The 30-Day Shred workout video.
Then I showered and put a real person outfit on- jeans and a black shirt. I even put some makeup on. Just a bit of mascara and some cover-up on my new zits.
Wasn’t the acne I had in high school enough? Do I really need to start breaking out again at age 32? Let’s work something out. Call me (maybe).
I whipped up a fancy (but easy) one dish dinner of tilapia, roasted potatoes, and broccoli.
After dinner I pushed my husband to go swimming and I took care of getting both kids to bed myself.
When he got home, I brought my laptop downstairs and hung out while he watched Game 6 of Red Sox/Cardinals.
We reminisced about how times have changed since the year when our two teams (the Yankees and the Phillies) faced off in the World Series.
I remember that so distinctly. It was 2009. I couldn’t even enjoy my team’s success, because I was felt so bad for my husband that the Phillies lost.
Thankfully we don’t have that problem this year. With baseball OR football.
Sorry Giants- you’re just not going to be able to salvage this season.
And Eagles- you won’t either. As usual.
