I’ve found out that I really, really have to be in the mood for a breakfast parfait. I was putting my stuff together yesterday and it was easy to toss in a Chobani, some fruit and granola and call that breakfast.
Even though I had plain Chobani, this ended up being really sweet to me – maybe the bananas were too much? I ended up eating only about 2/3 of this.
It looked nice when I went to the pool, but storm clouds rolled in and I thought they might close the pool, but I got in my 30 minute swim. However, the kids were like a magnet to the adult swim lap lane. Not kidding I think the lifeguards blew the whistle a couple dozen times telling kids to stay out of it!
I wanted to show you guys how close the gym is to my office – so I can never have an excuse that I don’t have the time. I am not sure you guys have heard my voice yet?!
Hope you got a kick out of that!
I made a batch of Renee’s chicken orzo soup for lunch – so good! The only thing I forgot was the chopped baby spinach – I wanted to add that when I reheated the soup, still good though!
When Tony and I were shopping over the weekend, I saw this cranberry walnut bread – it was packaged as half a loaf for $2 so I decided to give it a try. I was pissed though when I was looking over my register receipt when I got home and saw that it cost $4.19! Gah. I normally pay better attention – I blame Tony, he was probably distracting me! I do need to find a recipe for this though!
I made a deli turkey/cheddar panini. The bread isn’t overly sweet, and I love the nuts. (that’s what she said).
I asked Tony when I got home what he felt like for dinner – I gave him several options after which he said “whatever you want is fine.” So grilled chicken Caesar salads it was!
That was a great pre-workout meal. After dinner Tony and I watched Ray Donovan – a new series on Showtime with Jon Voight. It’s really good. That hour rest time was enough time for my dinner to digest and I killed Insanity last night – it felt really good to push hard. It was Max Interval Plyo and it was 56 minutes long!
So sweaty!! And that was even having the central air on! I ended up buying a case of this Gatorade – I plan on drinking one after Insanity – its low calorie and low carb – 45 calories for the whole bottle with 12 grams of carbs. I like that it doesn’t taste as sweet as regular Gatorade. And for the record, I didn’t mix it with the vodka that’s in the background.
I have to give a shout out today! Dave, of the couple Rachel and Dave of Losing It, just hit his 10% goal at Weight Watchers. Even before he started WW, he lost weight, and has lost 36 pounds on WW – so his total weight loss to date is 70 pounds! You should be so proud of yourself Dave! And it was Rachel’s birthday yesterday – happy belated Rachel!
They have this quote on their blog, which I think I’ll print out and put at my desk – just as a reminder to stay focused:
“Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal.” ~ Vince Lombardi
