Sweat Beard & Stache

The drive to work yesterday was gorgeous.  It was 55 degrees and sunny, the first awesome fall day if you ask me.

I heated up a poppy seed muffin in the microwave for 20 seconds – tasted just like it came out of the oven.  I enjoyed that with my to go coffee on the way to work.

I always have to laugh at my food on Friday’s because I almost always have nothing planned – I write my menu plans from Saturday to Thursday and I think that Friday is just my “leftover” kind of day.

Yesterday I had a breakfast baked potato.  Scrambled egg whites with spinach.  I cut a baked potato in half (it ended up being 4 ounces) and scooped out the potato and scrambled that with the egg whites.  Then at work I put two slices of ham on the bottom, put the egg/potato/spinach mixture on top, topped it with 1/2 an ounce of cheese and put it under the broiler.  284 calories and 27 grams of protein!  I didn’t take a picture of it smothered in hot sauce though. Open-mouthed smile

My twin sister loves puffy clouds so I texted her this picture outside my gym.

Janetha put a workout on Instagram that seemed bad ass.  20 minute sweat session on the stair master – 1 minute sprint at level 20 and 1 minute “rest” at level 8, then repeat for 20 minutes.

Um, yeah, no.  Have you ever done level 20 on a stair master?  Holy shizz, I couldn’t even get it up that high without falling off, so I quickly devised a new workout.  5 minute warm up on the treadmill – then this workout below (I typed it up when I got back to work) and 5 minute cool down for a perfect 40 minute lunch workout.

Even at level 15 my heart was pounding!   Thanks for the inspiration Janetha!  And when I was done, I had a sweat beard and stache – klassy!

Not bad 82 floors in 30 minutes. Thumbs up

You guys are never going to guess what I had for lunch yesterday.  Are you ready for it???


One of the attorneys I work for has a dairy allergy and didn’t realize this canned soup had dairy in it, so he gave it to me.

It’s two servings, so I ate the whole can – which was 260 calories and sadly 85% of my sodium intake for day.  Skippy, don’t buy this soup! Open-mouthed smile

I have to confess – it was actually pretty good.  I spiced it up with some Tabasco, but there were chunks of chicken, rice, black and pinto beans.  I may need to make a Mexican soup this week.

I had a Chobani later in the afternoon as a snack.  I hadn’t had the blueberry in a while and it was really good.

Why is it that Friday afternoons at work seem to drag on and on and on.  I couldn’t wait until 5:00!

I had a rewards coupon so we had pizza delivered!  Hooray for party pizza Friday! 

chilly 025

I had that plate, plus two more squares – I was really hungry last night. Open-mouthed smile

Tony and I are actually going out with our neighbors tonight – they’ve invited us to a Beer and BBQ event.   Um, pretty sure beer and bbq go hand in hand!  And tomorrow is football Sunday – we might have a rainy day so you can bet I’ll be Bizzy in my Kitchen. Open-mouthed smile

I also plan on hitting up the library to get books on weight lifting – I think I need to concentrate my lunch hour workouts to weight lifting, and leave the cardio to Insanity at night.  I’ve got that 14 pound loss goal to attain!

Another thing I fail at over the weekend is getting my water intake in – so I’ve filled up my 3L jug and I have to drink it before the end of today.

I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!  You can follow me on Instagram though – biz319.  Hugs!

  1. Looks like you’ll be having a great weekend! Ours will be football themed, as usual. B played quarterback at his flag football game this morning and had 2 touchdowns! And now the Huskers play in 45 minutes, so I gotta get my rear in gear! We are going to my parent’s to watch the game with my brother and his girlfriend. MAK is working but he’ll come over later. Have a great time at the beer and bbq fest! 🙂

    This is what I was telling you before. Sorry – I forgot to e-mail it to you. Jamie has a whole weight lifting plan + videos.

  3. Happy weekend – how BEAUTIFUL is the weather today? Perfect.

    Enjoy cooking in your kitchen during the football and rain, nothing sounds better…! I will be outside at a back to back football/baseball game, wish me luck, ha!

  4. Yahhhh for the janetha inspiration! Love that girl! Its been too long since i last made pizza-a must very soon. Enjoy the weekend

  5. I think you will really love weight training!!!
    And – sounds like a fun weekend – beer & BBQ is always good + football Sunday?! Enjoy!

  6. Love the fog rolling in! And I want your breakfast potato. I think strength training is almost more important than aerobic exercise. I am at my best when I lift weights 4x/week. For the past couple of months it’s only been twice/week (and not at all during my 2 week vacation). I have gained a few pounds back. Gotta ramp it up again!

  7. Food look delicious! I made pumpkin soup for the first time in my life yesterday. Followed the recipe although my eyebrow did raise when I saw how much cayenne pepper had to be in the soup. Well … it turned out I was right, way to much peppeer in it. I didn’t finish it and threw it away. But … the taste of the pumpkin was there and I will definitely do more with pumpkin in the future.

    and I get here too on the reg 🙂

  9. I want to make poppy seed muffins. I just can’t bring myself to pay $6 for a little spice jar of them. Maybe I should hit up the computer and see if I can find spices whole sale.
