I kicked that workout in the balls.

Who else has the day off besides me?  I actually had a half day yesterday too.  Tony had his check up with his surgeon to see how his wound vac is coming along.  He took the sponge out and took a look at his wound and said “it’s beefy and bloody – it looks great!”

Turns out he’ll have to wear the vac for another month – our next appointment is not until May 3.  I know he’s sick and tired of being glued to that tube coming out of his stomach. Steaming mad

I actually surprised Tony – he didn’t know I was going to show up!  But I like getting all up in his business – no seriously, I hadn’t been to see this doctor with Tony for a couple months, so I just wanted to see where we were at in person.

We ended up actually going out to lunch!  I think it’s the second time we’ve been out since December?  Unfortunately, it was the Chicago Cubs opening day so we had to be subjected to that (Go White Sox!).  I ended up getting a cup of the beer cheese soup (they had me at cheese) and a side salad.  Couldn’t take pictures because we were in the upstairs bar part and it is way too dark.

When we got home I was able to start our laundry, took the dog for a 10 minute walk, then Hannah and I headed to the gym.  I had done my 30 minute Classical Stretch (this one was actually really hard!) and needed to get in my additional 60 minutes.

I warmed up for 10 minutes, ran a 5k in 36:00 minutes on the dot, then walked to cool down until I hit sixty minutes.  I kicked that workout in the balls. In love Thanks for coming with me Hannah!

I wished I could have run a bit faster, but my blood sugar was only 180 to start.  Still ended up with a 12:00 minute pace – not too bad.

Here were my eats:  Breakfast was the Paleo breakfast casserole with a cup of grapefruit:

Thanks to Google images for my beer cheese soup.  I make a cauliflower cheese soup with bacon – only six WW points! Check out this recipe here.  I loves me a beer cheese soup. Open-mouthed smile

Since Tony and I ate such a late lunch we didn’t have much of an appetite for dinner so I made sammies.  Ham and cheese sammies with mustard.  Don’t knock the mustard.  In fact, I should have added more. Just kidding  With veggies chips and a sliced kiwi.

In case you are wondering, I am keeping good track of my eats and workouts!  Complete with wine stickers too! Martini glass

If you celebrate Easter, what’s on your Easter Menu?  

We are having:

Alright, I am off to get my 30 minute stretch in.  Then Hannah and I are thrifting this morning.  Tony and I will get the grocery shopping done and sadly, I still have more laundry to do.  Anyone want to come over and do my laundry?  I’ll make you some bread! Be right back

  1. I actually love doing laundry. If only I could find someone to clean my bathroom in exchange! Homemade bread would be great too. Have a wonderful Easter Biz! So glad to hear the news about Tony.

  2. I’m jealous of your long weekend! But I did just get back from vacation! Enjoy it!

  3. I’m off today and I slept in! Woot! I’m actually just now getting ready to exercise. I have no idea what’s on the Easter menu other than ham and the potatoes I’m making (trying a new recipe). Mama Helen is hosting so I’ll be surprised when I get there.

    Have a great weekend Biz!

  4. I wouldn’t mind doing your laundry, one of the chores I don’t hate 🙂
    But if I do will you come and dust my furniture and clean my floors?

    I have to work today but have a day off Eastern Monday.

    This year I’m going to take it easy with the Eastern dinner. Sunday morning we will have breakfast together and for dinner we are “steengrillen” (little pieces of meat on a table grill). The next day we will have leftovers or if there aren’t we will take out Chinese food or go for pancakes.

    Happy Eastern.

    I love the wine stickers!!! What a great motivator to not have too many glasses. Keep up the good work.

  6. I love your chart and the stickers, how cute! Mine is pretty boring and everything is tracked on myfitnesspal.

    For Easter we’re having ham, mashed potatoes, asparagus, corn and a yummy yogurt/jello pie. 🙂 Hope you have a great day off!

  7. I hate doing laundry. And it’s one of my “chores”. So, even with the offer of bread (which I adore!) I can’t do it. 🙂
    Enjoy the day off and Happy Easter!

  8. I dont mind laundry-ill do it!! I really like mustard too (josh dislikes it). Glad tony is healing up!!

  9. I like your wine sticker! Nice job on that 5K, too!

    We are having a classic Easter meal – ham, asparagus, scalloped potatoes (which my mom is making and I will be watching…I’ve been craving them for years but not enough to actually be bothered with looking for a recipe, lol).

    Enjoy your day off and the long weekend!

  10. I am a bit jealous. I wish I had today off. Enjoy the day!
    I love a good sandwich if I’m not in the mood to cook. Hits the spot.

  11. Weighting For 50

    I’d come do your laundry if you made bread!!!!! 🙂 Woo Hoo, I’m off work and plan on thrifting today too! (so wish we lived in the same area to go thrifting together sometimes – I KNOW we would have so much fun!!) Hope you and Hanna find some good finds. Way to go on kicking the workout, and operation badass in the balls!!!

  12. Way to go on the workout! Beer cheese soup sounds so great right about now. Usually Easter is spent at my hub’s Mom’s house but, she is going out of town this year. We’re just staying at home and cooking ribeyes marinated in this great marinade that I’ll soon post, roasted red potatoes and a radish salad. Happy Easter!

  13. I will come do your laundry, I just hate putting it away! (that bread is too good to pass up!)
    We are having a very casual lunch thing, some friends are coming that I haven’t seen for a few years and I want to visit, not be stuck in the kitchen! 🙂
    Bummer about Tony having to keep using the wound vac, but it’s good if it’s helping. What a good wife for surprising him! Happy Easter to you and your family Biz!

  14. Sorry about Tony; but May will come soon enough!!!

    And great job on that workout! I’m not motivated to do mine!!!

  15. Great job on your goals so far! I had to work today all day.

    We get together for dinner on Easter, even though I don’t celebrate it. We are all bringing things to pass.

  16. You made me LOL when I read your blog title! hahaha! Go Biz! I’m not cooking the Easter meal, but I’m bringing broccoli salad and lemon bars. I figure we’re probably having ham. YUM! Happy Easter!

  17. I am sorry about Tony being stuck to that thing another month, but I am glad it is helping him! I love making beer cheese dip, it is one of Tom’s favorites. Good job on your work out and I don’t care how many pictures of that breakfast casserole you put up I always want to eat it 🙂
