No Candy January

Today was standard issue. Nothing terrible exciting. Had a really brutal workout in circuit training class today, but that's about it. I think my legs will be feeling it tomorrow!

On Sunday, we went to church, but towards the end of the ceremony, the fire alarm starting going off! I was kind of confused at first. I was looking around like, Is this real? Should I grab my coat? Do I get my kid?

The usher escorted us out and assured us the nursery workers would bring Caleb out to safety, and they did. Turns out some of the ladies were making something in the kitchen for a post-service fellowship, and I guess it must have gotten a bit smokey in there. No real fire, just some exciting cooking! :) These are my boys, outside of church. Caleb is clearly wondering what all the fuss is about.

I also went to a Pampered Chef party that afternoon at my friend Sharon's. It was a bit different than a traditional Pampered Chef party. Instead of the PC lady doing the demonstration, we broke up into teams and competed to make a PC recipe the fastest. Our team won by making a Reese's trifle pretty quickly.

Did I mention I'm trying not to eat candy the whole month of January? Yeah. This past Sunday was the second time I broke that rule when I dug into this divine trifle. The other time was when my coworker came back from Belgium waving around Belgian chocolates all day! (In my defense, though, they were Belgian chocolates! And I only ate one, although I was tempted to eat more!)

I think February I'm going to try and swear off fried foods for a month. I haven't eaten a ton of them this month, but I'm curious if I could survive with NO french fries for four weeks!

We booked a Mediterranean cruise this week (eeeeee!!!) for May, so I'm trying to whittle down a few pounds before then! I'm trying to watch what I eat in general and keep up with the exercising, but I'm also giving myself 1 month rules to challenge myself in one way in particular. This way, I'm not totally depriving myself, but there's one tiny area I concentrate on each month. January might be the hardest because I have a candy dish to maintain at work!
