I was up .4 lbs but it's all good. As promised here's me in the Body Gospel shirt. Both sides have the same logo so I didn't bother with a rear photo. Benny and I couldn't get the picture right. I don't know if it was the lighting, my pooch, my jeans, or something else that made it look weird to us.
My double headaches returned this week and are still going on. Medicine will squelch the aches for a few hours but it always comes back. I didn't let the headaches stop me from working out.
Along with my headaches, Saturday my HRM was spazzy. First, it wouldn't even pick up my heart rate. Then, during the warmup it jumped from 90-something to 180!
One challenger has lost 4 lbs two weeks in a row! Fingers and toes crossed that she'll have another great loss to mark the halfway point.
I've made some progress on the Famous in Five Challenge, although not exactly in the way they intended. I've answered Carli's interview questions and have picked out two of the three pictures to use - a couple of pictures put together from 2011 & 2012 for my before shot and one of my workout pictures (like above). What should I do for the third one?
This week, not only do I have Thanksgiving dinner to prep but it's Austin's 12th birthday. I asked him what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday. He said that he wanted a Minecraft themed cake with all the fun blocks...something like this -
So Saturday, we went to Kroger and I let him pick out the ingredients.
- German Chocolate & Chocolate Fudge cake (he says there's enough of a color difference to make the blocks)
- Strawberry jello for the lava
- Berry Blue Jell-O for the water
- Coconut, icing, and green food coloring for the grass
I've NEVER done anything like this before so it'll be interesting to see how it turns out. My cakes are normally just the plain kind, sometimes with writing (spelling errors included).
I think I'm going to try to do the cake in the roaster oven while the turkey bakes in the regular oven. I picked up some square pans at Dollar Tree to make the cutting more even/easier (I hope). I could put two in the roaster to bake, remove them to cool and put the next pair in. I should be able to cut the cake into squares during this time also. The leftover pieces of cake and jello (not used for the design) I'll be taking into work to share with coworkers.
Have you made a "mixed media" cake before? How did it turn out?
