I WOULD ROCK THIS – ROBOT SUIT

You know what I need? For real, do you you know what I really need? A robot suit. I’ve put some thought into this, and I think a lot of the world’s woes could be solved by one awesome woman in her robot suit.

I would trade in my current car, all my future cars and figure out a way to go back in time and trade in every car that I’ve ever owned in the past, just for one of these robot suits featured in this video. Why is life so unfair?

If any mad scientists out there are looking for test pilots, feel free to hit me up on Twitter. Its @MissShannan. I’m willing to travel and have excellent reflexes. Plus I’m pretty tiny, so it could be a small robot suit to cut down on the initial production costs.

So far, I’m not seeing much of a downside to this particular plan, so feel free to give me a shout in a week or two when you’ve worked out the details.

Mamavation Monday – Saying NO to OCB!!! Plus Healthy Recipe

After church on Sunday at the request of my Hubby. He has a nostalgic soft spot for OCB, it’s that thing that you know is bad for you, but you still love mostly because it brings back great childhood memories when you eat it. I totally understand since I have a similar weekness for Totino’s pizza.

But after we got there I remembered why we stopped going to places like that. It’s so hard to find anything that’s not covered in sauce or stuffed full of salt. I felt bad letting our toddler eat most of the stuff on the menu. If you’re like my husband, who already has problems with portion control, you might as well just pack the pounds on the minute you walk in the door. I’m constantly telling him that he eats to fast, so his body doesn’t have time to register that he’s full before he’s stuffed himself to capacity like a Thanksgiving turkey.

Before we started eating, Hubby was so excited, because he said it was his “Cheat Day.” Then the cheating began.
After brunch we got back in the car, and hubby said, “You’re gonna make fun of me.
I said, “Why.”
He says, “I’m stuffed.”
He was right; I made fun of him the whole ride home.

When we got home, he passed out on the couch, I’m sure all the teasing I gave him in the car wore him out. But the Toddler and I got some play time in and he even helped me do my Kettleworx Workout. (I call him hanging on my leg “helping”.)

To help make up for the junk food cheat day, I found a new recipe that I’ll be making this week. It’s Black Bean and Mushroon Chilli. It’s healthy and because you can put in the Crock Pot, it’s really easy and convenient. If you try it, please let me know.

Plus, if you haven’t signed up for my Kettleworx Starter Workout Kit, you still have time this week.  Just sign up via my last week’s post.

Along with watching my diet I plan to log at least 10 miles on the treadmill as I start to get ready for the Half Marathon I’m running in June. One trip to OCB isn’t going to kill us, but I’m glad we don’t do this everyday. My waistline and marriage couldn’t handle it.
