That’s A Wrap ~ Jan 9, 2016

That's A Wrap #souzaville weekly wrap up week at a glance

This feels like it’s been the longest week ever for some reason.  Getting the kids and myself back into routine after having two weeks off was nothing short of a real pain in the ass.  I must admit I liked the idea of not having to set an alarm clock over the Christmas break.

I know that most people don’t like the snow but I can honestly say that I am actually really enjoying the winter wonderland we are getting this year.  This is our second winter here in the northern hemisphere and last year it barely snowed and never stuck but this year is just the opposite.winter trees frost snow cold  I just love when the tree branches are laced with snow and frost.  I wanted to get out and take more pictures on this particular day but of course there is just never enough time in my day sometimes.

This is partly do to the fact that I have taken up getting my fat physique  body back to the gym.  I have decided to even blog about my progress in my Workout Wednesdays posts.  Just in case you missed the first one you can click on the link.  There’s a lovely gif of John Travolta twerking it 70’s style that’s guaranteed to make you laugh.

I have to say that I have fallen completely in love with Zumba and can’t believe that it took me so long to try it out.  Not to mention it’s great for vamping up increasing FitBit exercise tracker steps loggingthe steps on my FitBit.

The greatest thing about Zumba is it reminds me of the days of going to the clubs and dancing, only I’m not drunk and falling on my ass nor am I hung over the next day.  However, I am very sore!  But it’s a good kind of sore.  The kind you know you worked hard for.

I am also going strong with my no drinking.  Haven’t had a drop of alcohol since New Year’s Eve and yesterday was even Friday!  **takes a bow** Yeah I know it’s only been 8 days but that’s the longest I have gone without a beer or glass of wine since pregnant and nursing.  And maybe that one time in high school.

My other passion, the Denver Broncos, won last Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers putting them in first place of the AFC.high five Denver Broncos AFC  In case you missed my post about my psychotic compulsion obsession with them you can catch that here.

Today is a big day here at Souzaville as my mini monster B is having his very first birthday party.  He decided on wanting it at the bowling alley and with a cosmic flair.  I am sure after an afternoon of kids, pizza, cake, and ice cream I will be wishing that I had bought that bottle of wine that I stared at for 15 minutes in the grocery store the other day.

And to wrap up my week on a good story I had a moment of paying it forward the other day.  There was a lady in front of me at the grocery store who was purchasing a few items to make a batch of spaghetti with.  She had an EBT card and their system was down and she wasn’t able to pay for her groceries.  She was extremely stressed because she didn’t have a car and had gotten a ride from a friend.  So I went ahead and paid for them.  She was nearly in tears and hugging me and informed me she had been laid off from her job around Christmas time.  Regardless of whether her story was true or not I don’t know…but it made me feel good to help someone who was in need of some help.  And it wasn’t her fault that their system was down.

I hope all of you have a fabulous week and in case you missed it…#momsterslink is back!  So bring your favorite new or old post and come link up!

  1. Trista, that’s so kind of you to pay for a stranger’s groceries. It sounds like you made her day! Hopefully she will pay it forward & keep the goodness going. Congrats on your healthy lifestyle – no drinking, exercise & healthy eating. You are an inspiration! Zumba sounds like so much fun, I wish I could join you for class. x

    1. I just felt so bad for the lady …I knew she was budgeting herself because I remember looking at her items when I put mine up behind hers and everything was generic brand. Even though I have caught people being dishonest about their situations before I just have to go on believing that she was in need of help and at the time I could help her.
