It feels as though I haven’t written a post in a while. Eleven days according to WordPress. That’s a long time between posts for me. I have been struggling a little with content ideas. I am just living day-to-day, so that’s not exciting to write about. I haven’t had any epiphanies or a-ha moments, traveled, entered any races or competitions, dined at an extraordinary restaurant or attended many events lately so there is not much to say. Just the same old same old over here. I am very grateful to readers who take the time to visit my little corner of the internet, so when I do post I want to write something with quality. And yes, I consider my Housewives Posts quality. It takes a lot of effort to recap those lively ladies. My training is on point, but I’ve mentioned that probably a few more times than I can count.
I did come up with this post though, so that’s something. In two weeks it will be March break. The school year is just whizzing by before my eyes. Question for any younger (than me) readers. Is time going by at the speed of light for you, or is that just a thing for the “mature-of-age?” I don’t know. It just seems that way. Anyway, for March break I will be going to New York, The Bronx to be exact. Actually I will be tagging along with Andy for a work-related trip he is taking. We will be driving and that is where the dilemma lies. Road trips make me eat crap.
Road Trip!! Please Jesus take the wheel and help me not to go crazy with M and M’s and Doritos. (that’s really Andy at the wheel in this shot.) In reality Andy is great at keeping me accountable and calling me out, so I do thank Jesus for such a supportive husband to help me achieve my goals.
So to prevent this junkfoodpalooza that could potentially go down in the car, I will prep. Just like a I prep for success here at home. I want to indulge in a few treats during my trip, and I don’t want to waste my treat allowances in a car. If there is a Bronx bakery with luscious cupcakes or donuts, that my friends, is where I want the indulgences to be. Not in a mini van.
So to plan for success I will pack healthy snacks such as almonds, fruit, vegetables and low sugar protein bars. Get your snacks on route 66! Does anyone else know that Nat King Cole song, or just the more “mature of age?”
It is about a ten-hour drive. I wish I could bring a book to pass the time, but I get motion sickness when I read on the road. I will also be traveling with a fun, happy and humorous group, so that will help.
Will anyone be going away for Spring Break? A beach? Sand under your feet? Do tell so I can live vicariously through you. For now, I will be enjoying a Bronx cupcake and hopefully avoiding the bags of Doritos.
