Hard workouts and good meals!

6 Mar

Today I worked out pretty hard! That will have to wait for the end of the entry though, as it did occur at the end f the day.

I woke up this morning and took my yummy gummy vitamins! They really do make taking vitamins that much better.



Then it was time to pack my breakfast and head off to work. We had a meeting, but I had to miss it because I had a chiropractic adjustment, man did that feel like heaven!

Breakfast today was 0% Chobani with a little honey and apple cinnamon cheerios and a banana!

I worked a lot today, as today seemed to be the day every bill ever was mailed to the store, days like this I seriously hate the way bills are entered and paid through peachtree!

Then it was time for lunch, I packed a salad and an apple but decided I wanted some soup as well and thus this was the most glorious lunch. That dressing is amazing and Dan also loves it!

I know you wish your desk had Hello Kitty Post Its, Bath and body works lotions (2 kinds) and a glass and container that need to be washed! Those strawberries were amazing, and will be making a cameo in tomorrows breakfast!

When I got to work I found this on my desk, because my co-worker Krystle also loves Hello Kitty!

Times like these I wish I had a baby so I could give it that to snuggle, or at least keep in its room due to the eyes being so small! (Don’t worry Mom Karnolt, after my marathon we will start planning a grandchild for you.) :-).

Then it was time for the gym, Dan and I took our first spin class, the lesson today was do not let the instructor who was easily 8 inches shorter than I am adjust your seat height to such a high level, major wedging and chaffing! OUCH!!!! There is a reason I do not wear thongs when working out, and today certainly seemed like I was. Oh and if this is too much info for you, you should probably stop reading my blog. Anyone who knows me knows I am not shy about injuries of any type, or pretty much anything, except bathroom related events! (thats something you just dont talk about!)

Other than the odd seat height we both loved spinning! It was really fun and helpful to my endurance. Much like my running the beginning SUCKED, but as we progressed I settled in nicely and finished strong. I always have trouble with my first mile, such a PAIN! When I got home I was still energized so I ran a quick unplanned mile in 11:45. I felt really good about the time, especially since even with all my stretching my legs were pretty tight and the run did help a bit.

Then I ate a salad, some pasta and watched biggest loser, which Dan sat down and watched with me. Pretty good night. I am off to bed now, as I do plan on running tomorrow morning because tomorrow night is FAMILY DINNER!!!!


Does anyone else watch REVENGE on Wednesday’s?

How upset are you that it is not new until April, Dan and I were devestated!

What did you eat today…..I love food as you can tell and if it was sugar bonus points for you! I would kill someone for ice cream (just kidding, but kind of not), but I realize it was worth it to give up something I love for Lent and make a sacrifice. For my health and religion!

Did you give up anything for Lent?

Don’t be like my Dad who said Applesauce, he doesnt like it so that does not count!

I’ll leave you with this Finny picture, he likes to watch television like this….

Floating Head Dog!!!!

Please tell me you watch Scrubs and get the reference!


100 calorie snack choices

24 Feb

Today Web M.D. sent me an email with some 100 calorie snack choices. Yes the usually 8 baby carrots and some hummus were on there, as were 14 almonds. I was thinking this would be another boring article filled with snacks I would never eat unless they were my absolute last option. Then things got interesting.

A frozen bannana as a popsicle not only looks and sounds delicious at 79 calories, but also reminds me of arrested development, which is one of the greatest shows of all time! Plus, there’s always money in the bannana stand ;).

This is probably my favorite one, graham crackers and chocolate forzen yogurt at 84 calories you really cannot beat it! It is like a guilt free smore, yes the marshmellow is missing but I think totally worth it!  

This one is probably the most satisfying, 1 cup of tomato soup for 74 calories. Plus with it being a liquid it will fill you up faster and you will be less inclined to eat more later on!

This one is my own addition, one stick in not 100 calories but seeing how I gave up sugar for lent, this has really carried me through. Sugar free and tastes exactly like Ice Cream, sign me up!


What are you favorite low calorie snacks?

What are your all time favorite snacks of any time?
