Momma Wants Some Carbs!

It seems like a lot of bloggers are writing about losing weight. I am not one of those bloggers. It's not for lack of trying though. For the past four weeks I've been going to the gym at least 3 times a week. I'm happy to be getting back into the routine again and I feel better...Buuuuut I've lost a total of zero pounds.

I've decided that there just has to be something wrong with me. It can't possibly be something I'm doing wrong...

                                             Like driving all over town hunting for free bagels.

It all started when a friend sent me an email telling me how Bruegger's was giving away three free bagels on Tuesday. Those 2 words - Free and Bagels - were music to my chunky girl ears. In minutes I had located the nearest Bruegger's and figured out if we left just a few minutes early for homeschool bowling, we could make it in time!

Of course when you have kids nothing works out according to plan and we ended up leaving too late to stop  :/

But there's no stopping this girl when it comes to free carbs! Bowling couldn't be finished soon enough for me and as soon as it was, my friend and I (and our combined 9 kids) hopped in our cars and headed to our first Bruegger's. Yes, we went to more than one.

As soon as we walked into the first one the guy working rolled his eyes and gave us a major attitude. Like the fact that we were there just to get free stuff was personally offending him! Whatever...Just give me my bagel and I won't hurt you. Then with only a few minutes left we rushed over to the next location. The guy working there was super nice and gave all of us bagels!

15 bagels and 1 tub of cream cheese later I was pounding down carbs like it was my job! And if the deal didn't end at 3 PM, I would have gone to every stinking Bruegger's In the city! Who cares if it would have cost me more money in gas! Those babies were free.

So yeah. Maybe I need to go see a doctor or something because I don't understand why I'm not losing any weight.


  1. I LOVE Bruegger's bagels! I kind of miss working there.

  2. Hahahaha!!! I loved this!! Victoria's Secret is the same way! If I go in just to get my free panties...LOL! I'm like Hmmmm...spend $50 on a bra to appease you or grab my undies and get the heck out?...decisions, decisions...I'll just take the panties please, Oh! and wrap them up in that pretty little pink bag, so I can look cool and rich walking around the mall.
