Malena's Brownie Workout
Hello LaMies! What a week! I had some dental work done, so I haven't been talking much. (I know, I don't believe it either) So, I'm just hanging around the house making brownies..and doing my ball workout. Quite a combo wouldn't you say?
Miles is quite the brownie Connoisseur. I love to bake so I don't mind rising to the challenge of baking the ultimate chocolate confection...
Tonight I made double chocolate brownies with whipped creme (complete with a splash of Bailey's Irish creme) then I grated some dark chocolate on top. I must say it was heavenly. You know you've got the dieting thing down when you can make brownies and only eat 1! (Ok, I ate one and a half)
I also (accidentally) learned to ski with my yoga mat. Yes, it was a "retard in a leotard" moment. There I am balancing on my ball. The video says to roll on your stomach and push out, catching yourself with your hands. Well, Miles was walking own the hall and I thought, "Hey I'll do something cool to show him how limber I am!" So, I jump on the ball..which skids on the yoga mat and swoosh! My entire body makes a penguin style body surf onto the kitchen tile while my legs are still on top of the ball. Ahhhhhh! Miles just laughed and said, "Do you need help Lover?"
I guess the "Olive Oil goil" didn't leave me in middle school after all. So much for swan dives ah? I always call Miles Basil, from Fawlty Towers...but then he calls me PEG..from Married with Children. (I think it's because of the tight pants and high heels) But I took the cake on clutzy behavior today.
The only thing more crazy was when Lorraine and I went to a water park. (She'll die that I'm sharing this with you)
At every park there is one ride the Moms stay away from. This time, it was the surf machine. Yes, they really had an indoor water surf ride. Ohhh, that was it! I had to do it. I've always wanted to surf. I did notice however, that everyone over 50 lbs. would lose some part of their suit when they fell. NOt to worry, I thought. I have my black mesh swim skirt on! And with that, off I went. I begged Lorraine to come with me but, NOOooo. NO WAY she said. Yes! It was finally my turn. The little instructor dude gives me a quick lesson on how to hold the board. (No one knew me, so what the heck!) I jumped on the board and with a quick swish, I was down the wave, or up the wave. I couldn't tell, I was just spinning. The, I feel the cold water rushing up my backside. Oh no! My butt check is in full view. I hold on to my suit for dear life. (The goth girl swin skirt was now long gone) LORRAINE is laughing so hard people are concerned for my emotional well being. In mid snort, she cackles, "It's ok, she's my friend"
Finally the board stopped and I quickly converted my suit from a g-string to a full piece again. Every old..and young man was looking at my with empathy, trying not to laugh. And just when I thought I was the biggest dork of all, I saw the girl who went after me....putting her top back on. It's always a show with LaM..always.
