I'm fully obsessed with these little munchkins and love interacting with them, seeing them learn, and grow. As I'm a big "little kid" myself, I have lots of fun things I like to share and teach them. I'm lucky enough that we snagged this little video from the weekend. Watching it just makes me smile!
One of the cutest things is seeing them interact with one another. Their conversations, their friendship, their rivalries. They are adorable and at such a fun age. They love taking pictures right now. So I ended up with a lot of these on my camera at the end of the weekend...
The morning consisted of some snuggles with the boys, Father's Day presents, and a 3-mile run. I'm really glad that I had the motivation to get up and run because it made me feel a little better about some of my decisions later in the day. Oh, and before I left, there were obviously some more pictures. I let them each take turns with my camera. I'm sorry but they are just too cute not to share :)

Nonetheless, it's always a good time to hang out with family and celebrate the fathers in my family!
I came back to Albany on Sunday night tired and with a lot going on in my head. I tried to write a blog entry last night but wasn't exactly sure how to express what I was feeling. I'm still not entirely sure, but figured I'd just keep it brief.
So, I didn't do the best with eating well this weekend. I planned to. I had every intention of sticking with the plan of the cleanse I was 1/2 way through. I drank a black coffee on my drive -- first one in my life -- to avoid sugar and milk.
But for some reason I felt the need to overcompensate when I was with other people. My family all reads the blog and let me know that they'd read how I was trying to be healthy lately, yet I pretended I wasn't. "What? No, it's totally fine. It doesn't matter. I can eat whatever."
And then once I broke the seal, I just indulged a lot. Double ice cream. Lots of frosting from cake. More servings then necessary of meals. Just a lot of nonsense that wasn't needed. I knew what I was doing and made the decisions, so I've decided to not be mad at myself. However, I wanted to figure out why I felt that way and why I made those decisions.
I think I was feeling embarrassed. I've gotten used to sitting here alone in my apartment spilling my thoughts on to the blog, it's sometimes weird when people mention the really personal things that I write. I've been trying to connect more with the bloggers I don't know that read this and forgot that I still have to see some people in real life :)
Anyways, I'm doing my best to have a healthy attitude about things. I don't know if that cleanse thing was right for me. I broke all the rules anyways. I'm just going to keep on, keeping on!
Today I caught up on laundry, grocery shopping and cooking. I tried to make a new recipes of flavored roasted almonds and it came out gross and had to be scrapped. Sad face.
Otherwise, a pretty uneventful Monday. Hope you are all having a great start to your week and a happy, happy belated Father's Day to all the Dad's, Soon-To-Be-Dad's, and Dad-like-figures out there! XOXO.
