It’s a great time of year around here. The crab apple tree smells wonderful! When I go for walks at night I can smell my neighbor’s lilac bushes. It’s just the most wonderful smell.
I managed a decent workout this morning. 30 minutes on the elliptical followed by 25 minutes of arms/abs/legs. I have been slacking on strength, which is common for me, I felt like I’ve been going gung-ho on cardio lately so I opted for some strength moves. I’m sure I’ll be feeling some of those muscles tomorrow. All in all, 302 calories burned with a walk planned for after supper. Hopefully the rain holds off and the gale force winds aren’t too bad! LOL
Breakfast was oats, carrots, flax, germ, pudding mix, oil, truvia, cinnamon and cocoa powder. It was good and filling, but my tummy has been rumbling lately. Not from hunger but from upset. I’m not sure what that’s all about.
This morning I’m heading out to Kmart for the elusive blue jean that fits! I’m hoping to have some luck. I decided to return the jeans to Walmart that I bought. While they look nice on me, they have stretch in them and I was hiking them up a lot. So, back they go.
This afternoon is laundry, packing and prepping food for the weekend. So far the weather looks iffy for my Women’s Weekend. I wish it would be 75 and sunny!
Before I left for school I was craving something different to eat. I’m always in a serious food rut. Anyway, I came up with a toasted thin, cream cheese, sf strawberry jam and fresh sliced strawberries. It was yummy!
It turns out DD#1’s teacher didn’t have a lot for me to do so I got to hang out with DD#2 also. 🙂
Lunch today was pastaslim noodles, veggies sauteed in oil and sonoma jack cheese, along with garlic toast.
I will be eating this exact same lunch tomorrow too!
I did okay at Kmart. I found a pair of black jeans that I really liked how they fit. I guess I’m a petite when it comes to jean length. The mediums were just waaaay to long. Too bad my behind wasn’t petite so all the jeans would fit better. When I tried on my size, (read as: the size I usually grab), most of them fit okay, but were a little snug. So then I grabbed the next size up, well, I had some serious gapage going on. By that I mean they fit great in the legs, thighs and butt, but I had 3-4 inches around the waist that was gaping open. Oh well, it’s getting closer to shorts/capri weather anyway.
Dinner was leftover sloppy joes, fries, snap peas and milk.
I’ll end the day around 1550-1700 calories and I burned 512 with exercise.
Tomorrow’s plan is exercise, Zumba and heading to Eau Claire. I don’t know if I’ll post at all tomorrow or not, but I’ll try to catch back up on Sunday sometime. Have a great weekend to all!
