It seems like just yesterday I was bundling up and freaking out about how cold it was to be trick or treating. 🙂 YESTERDAY here in Ohio we had massive ‘spring-style’ thunderstorms. What the heck is going on, Mother Nature?
Today hasn’t been too horrid although I do think I could have made better choices – but it’s a learning curve again at this point. 🙂
BREAKFAST: 1 Slice Homemade Wheat Bread, toasted 1 egg – fried with a small spray of Olive Oil in the pan.
MID-MORNING SNACK: Everything Bagel with Veggie Cream Cheese (Dang drug reps) 🙂
LUNCH: 2 Breadsticks a half serving of fries
Small mixed greens salad with dressing
3/4 of a hard boiled egg
**Lesson learned – even on Rep Lunch days I should still pack a lunch in case they don’t bring anything healthy/that i want to eat**
Chickpea and Roasted Winter Veggie Stew Body by Vi Shake
**I needed more Protein in my day — thus the Vi shake that I abhor**
Ehh. All in all I am still within my caloric range for the day — so I may even add in a little snack of a few almonds between Lunch and Dinner. Probably not, but it’s great to know I have the option. 🙂
That’s what I have discovered. I am SO NOT in the Holiday Spirit this year. I am grumpy and forlorn. Oh — and not anywhere near where I thought I would be as far as my weight loss goals. Why? Because I quit.
That’s right. I’m a big fat quitter. 😦
My knees were beyond angry with me for taking up running. I am far too large to run on such solid surfaces as Sidewalks and Roads. Perhaps a treadmill with a little more give is the thing I need for now? I’m not sure.
I have not given up on my dream of running all together — just temporarily. I WILL run a 5K this spring. I WILL!
I am back on the bandwagon. Ya know, it’s the week before Christmas. If I can make is this week amongst all the cookies and treats in the office, I can do this ANY TIME! 🙂
2 Slices of homemade Wheat Bread, toasted
A roasted Winter Veggie and Chickpea Stew. (Recipe)
Jiffy Cornbread Muffin Triangle.
I have been drinking flavored teas like a maniac.
I am also starting an “It Works?” regime. Greens, Vitamins, etc. I am loving the results!
A Blog that I think will become my most favoritest place in all of cyberspace
I will be choosing a workout DVD tonight at random to complete – most likely a P90X one or Jillian or Bob. I heart Jillian and Bob. 🙂
This is my very first birch box. I love the box. Adorable. Here is what is in my box. My personal fav from the box. This lip butter is so moisturizing. The pomegranate fig scent is amazing. It doesn’t smell … Continue reading →
Yes, that is my breakfast and no I’m not afraid to admit that it’s my FAVORITE plate at my sister’s house. 🙂
Speaking of Omelettes — I have officially decided I am a master… mine are getting fluffier and fluffier each time I make them. MY secret? LOW HEAT! It takes longer, but they’re so good I don’t care.
*Before you judge that picture I do have to make it known that I was making omelettes in a saucepan — for some reason I can’t find a small skillet at my sister’s… Christmas present? – that’d go over well)
Normally Saturdays are the nights Punk stays with me – but this weekend I’ve been told she’s staying with MaMa… that means I can un tonight. Yay!
I love my job — a lot actually. (I know, weird right?) but I am still geeked for the weekend.
2 egg omlette
2T homemade salsa
Coffee with the Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer you see in the background 🙂 (uhh…YUM!)
On the way to work I was behind this car and I actually really enjoyed their bumper stickers. I haven’t seen one – let alone three – that resonate so clearly with me.
We talked our manager into taking us off-site for a lunch meeting (score!)
Chipotle was the choice
I had a salad with a small scoop of rice, black beans, veggies, all the salsas, and a ‘little’ cheese (which was as much as I put on in a ‘normal’ serving…HOLY COW!)
2 cornbread muffins
No – you read that right… just the muffins. I fell asleep reading at 6pm and didn’t wake back up until 9pm. I didn’t want to eat anything heavy that late so I just ate some of the left over muffins from last night’s dinner. Meh.
Yes, today should have been a training day… but again, I fell asleep so I just jogged around my block a couple times with Demon Dog and came back in. Total Distance? MAYBE a half mile. But I realized when I got back that I jogged the whole time (!?)
