This morning got off to slow start. Went to hospital to get a little blood drawn, and ended up spending an hour & a half there. The doctor forgot to send the lab order in from Bloomington, so I was the lucky one who got to sit in the waiting room for a good hour while they called her & waited for her to fax it. So glad I had a book with me to read!
A great book that I’ve read and tabbed about 3 times now. Still learning things from it. Love it….You should get it!
I was about starved by the time I was done at hospital because I had to fast in order to have the blood drawn, so I was in need of some energy!
Breakfast this morning post trip to hospital —
A small handful of mixed nuts & craisens
1/2 of Whole Wheat Sandwich Thin (Goldfish style!) with Spray Butter & SF Jelly
Major room cleaning took place after breakfast. Then a major RUN/Powerwalk that felt sooo good! The temp was perfect & I even managed to gain a little more tan!
Check out this hill I ‘hiked’ up today….
This pic doesn’t do it justice! It was one GREAT hill. Got to the top (note, I was walking! not running up this!), and there was an even bigger one up ahead – decided I’d tackle that another day. Hah!
The total run/walk time was 1.5 hours…roughly 7 good, sweaty miles. So sweaty that I decided I better not stretch on the carpet, so I pulled out the beach towel to stretch on!
Soph was curious about the crabs!
After run/stretch was sweeping & dusting time — I like to help Mom out when I can.
Lunch today was more like afternoon meal. Didn’t eat until I got hungry, which was 2.
Steamed Broccoli – seasoned with Italian seasoning
Deli Turkey – plain…no sandwich for me!
1/2 Whole Wheat Bagel from Panera toasted & topped with TINY bit of Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese & Italian Seasoning – dipping the bagel in Organic Italian Herb sauce.
Finished off meal with Pineapple & Blurps
Hit about every major food group on this meal…and it tasted so GOOD!
Snack before work = Xocai Powersquare + 1 healthified oatmeal cookie (made last week, but kept refrigerated).
Have you noticed that I did not have Shakeology today? Or my new normal breakfast of Greek yogurt & fruit. — I have to go the rest of the week with ZERO dairy. Meaning no milk, yogurt, cheese — oops, I slipped a bit when I added just a tad of Light Swiss LC cheese to my bagel at lunch – Shakeology (because it has dairy in it as its protein source & I also because I use yogurt when I make it), milk chocolate candy (I’m not cutting out the XOCAI healthy chocolate/XoBIOTIC), and anything else dairy related. Harder than I expected.
I have to do this through Friday to determine if I could be Lactose Intolerant, due to a few issues I’ve been having with my abdomen in the past weeks.
It’s weird how you crave what you cannot have. Today I open the fridge and the two things I wanted were a glass of skim milk & a greek yogurt. Couldn’t have either. UGH!
Before I left for work tonight I moved gym bag from room to living room & told Soph I was going to have to go to work for a little while. Two seconds later I turn around and find this:
Sophie knows I always take that gym bag with me when I leave for work, so she decided she wanted to go with me today!…Sorry Soph, the Y doesn’t allow pups, not even cute ones like you!
Taught ‘Get on the Ball’ class tonight at the Y! It was a great class. Awesome Glute & AB workout that had me sweating. Also played kick-ball & tag with Youth Fun Fit kiddos after. It was fun time. Once again felt like a kid. What a great feeling.
Dinner tonight was at my grandma and grandpas house after I got off work…
Salad with Tomaters & FF Italian Dressing
Green Beans & Rotisserie White meat Chicken (no skin)
I helped myself to a second serving of yummy green beans that is not pictured.
A few Grapes, a handful of Jelly-beans (at grandparents house) & XoBIOTIC
