Lesson Learnt


I now know that my body does not like grease covered foods anymore.

Yesterday, my mom and I decided to head into the city with the boys for a spur of the moment hunt for my dad’s Christmas present. He is, seriously, the hardest person in the world to shop for. What do you get a person who has no hobbies and doesn’t like clutter?

Anyways, we decided to hit Harvey’s for dinner. I would have preferred Subway, but mom really wanted Harvey’s. I caved in.

I had an original burger with cheese and a side of onion rings. I checked the points and I had enough points to cover it. I didn’t feel too bad spending my points on it.

About an hour later, I had the worst stomachache. I felt horrible.

I don’t want to go to Harvey’s ever again!

I’m sure I will at some point, but I think I’ll pick a grilled chicken burger or a salad instead. Lesson was learnt.

Today we woke up to snow gently falling from the sky. It looked so lovely. It’s a school day for Monkey. I bundled everyone up to walk him to the bus stop. Once he was safely on the bus, Muffin and went for a 3.1 mile walk.

I love walking outside when it’s snowing. I especially love big, fluffy snowfall. Not what we’re getting today, but it was still nice. Everything is quiet and peaceful. At least it was until we went by a snowplow. Those things are noisy! I enjoyed walking around, singing Jungle Bells with Muffin. He was so bundled up, he was nice and warm by the time we got home.

I took the time to shovel the driveway, walk way, front porch and back deck. Ranking up those activity points, burning off some of the fat I’m sure I packed on with yesterday’s burger and onion rings.
