Confessions of a Chocoholic...and a big announcement!

So I have a few confessions...

  • Who am I kidding? I am NOT giving up chocolate until Christmas. I've found that depriving myself of one of my true loves--chocolate--does nasty things to my mood. But I am going to try THIS chocolate that I read about on THIS blog.
GREEN AND BLACK 85% CACAO DARK CHOCOLATE. It's LOW in sugar, LOW on the glycemic index, chock full of antioxidants, and rumor has it that it also tastes great! Haven't tried it yet, but after reading Bonnie's raving reviews, I'm sold. So for those of you joining me in the no chocolate challenge, you win! I lose!


  • I never told you about the funnest race of the year...the Vegas Ragnar.

We had a blast. Getting NO SLEEP when it's my choice, and not a result of screaming children is actually really fun! I ran with my husband, my sister-in-law, my brother, my cousin, and two of my favorite old roommates. It was a 180-mile party! Somehow having them there made me run my fastest time ever...go figure! I'll be running more of these crazy Ragnars in the future...let me know if you want to join in on the madness!

  • There's a real reason for my lack of posting. I'M PREGNANT WITH BABY #3! A little nausea + MAJOR EXHAUSTION + still trying to work out in the morning + needy children and husband = blog deprivation. I'm only 8 weeks along, so I have a loooooooong way to go. But I'm thrilled that I get to bring another human being into this world.

I may focus a bit more on having a fit pregnancy, but other than that, fitmepink is still fitmepink! I'll try to drag my lazy self off the couch with more updates and less confessions.

See you soon!

Dark chocolate?!?! Who are you kidding? Just go for the real stuff. You'll be happier. I promise. I'm glad the word is finally out. Congrats. I'm so happy for you guys even if it means I have to do a dang Ragnar without you.

Hurray, congratulations! Every time I see a new post on your blog, I wonder if you'll be making an announcement such as this! I guess you'll beat me with #3, too! I hope you get feeling better soon.

Congratulations! That is very, very exciting news. Yay!

YAYAYAY! Join the pregnant women club at the gym! SO excited for you! Hope that you are feeling well!

From now on I feel like you need to just give up the "I'm going to quit..." blogs. Chocolate didn't work, sugar didn't work. Maybe if you were sedentary and watched Oprah all day, you'd have a reason to give up chocolate. But if you're burning 500 calories/day, I don't think you need to give anything up.

I guess this means everyone knows you're pregnant now...

YOU GO GIRL!! PREGNANT WITH #3! That is fantastic!

And for the record, Green and Blacks IS the Real Stuff! Thanks for the shout out :)

Cindy said...

Hooray! I'm thrilled for you! Hope the morning sickness and all of the joys that accompany the beginning of pregnancy pass quickly.

Did you lose a credit card in South Jordan? If so, I found it. E-mail me at youngbookshelf@gmail.com and I'll figure out a way to get it to you.
