Official WI And BIG NSV

Well, I'm down 1.8 this week!  Yes!!  So of course for dessert I made myself a sundae (but I used slow churned fro yo, that's better than ice cream right?) with fudge (it's sugar free!) AND caramel syrup.  Counterproductive much?  Whatever.  I busted my butt yesterday, I actually did the whole workout of BFBM!  AND I went for about an hour walk.
So here's my NSV.  I took the kids to the pool and..... wore my bikini.  Yup, IN PUBLIC.  Nuts right?  I have only ever worn a bikini one other time in my life and that was 7 years ago before I got pregnant with my son.  And that whole summer I only had the guts to wear it once.  But I wore one yesterday.  And guess what?  I didn't feel like anyone was staring at me wondering why the hippo was out of the zoo and wearing a two piece!  I wasn't that self conscious after the first few minutes.  Such a liberating feeling.  So yeah, feeling pretty good about that.

Today I'm taking my kids to their dad's for what will probably be the last weekend for a while.  He has some, um, legal matters that will be taking up his weekends for the next 5 or 6 weeks.  And by that time school will have started which means it will be soccer season, which means he'll only be able to have them one night on the weekends instead of two since soccer is Wed/Sat.

Now P is the type of guy that will just go ahead and make plans without consulting anyone.  If he thinks it's a good idea he's just going to go for it and tell you about it later.  Can we guess what I'm getting at here?  Last night when I called him so he could say good night to the kids he informs me that he has purchased 4 tickets for the Bronx Zoo.  Well he and the kids only make 3 people and both his parents work, and he can't take the kids out of state without my prior consent, so guess who ticket number four is for?  Yup.  Me.  Now I love the Bronx Zoo, I have been waiting years for when I thought the kids would be old enough to take there (I'm super paranoid about taking them places like NY and Philly) and I think they would love it, however he didn't check with me.  He just bought the tickets, and now I have to spend the day with him.  He's not a bad guy, he just drives me absolutely insane.  He's like a big kid.  That's what he is.  He is a 3 year old trapped in a 36 year old body.  The things I do for my kids, lol.  So hopefully things will go smoothly.  I really have no problems with him, it's just awkward, you know?  Spending an entire day with your ex.  This also means I have to skip the gym this morning if I want to get to the zoo early enough to make it worth going.  But since I will be spending the better part of the day on my feet, it should be okay.  I'm packing our lunches and our snacks so it will be cheaper and I don't really have to worry about what I'm eating.  Happy Friday!
