Today was a wonderful day for being a Friday & the 13th!
Started out teaching ‘Get on the Ball’ class this morning & practicing BodyPUMP.
Had a Cookies-n-Cream Protein Shake during/after the morning workout. Guess you can consider that my breakfast.
Snack before I left for B-Town…
Cashews + 35 Calorie Wheat Toast with SF Jelly
Stopped at my Nanny’s for a quick visit on my way out & to drop of this precious toot to Grams (who was at Nanny’s visiting also) so she could watch her since I was leaving town.
Isn’t she the cutest thing you ever did see?
Soph got a “brush-id” today before I left, then I snapped her pic & sent it to GRAMS to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY on her phone!
GRAMMY loved it!
*SUBWAY! Since I went off and left my Shakeology in the fridge due to being in a hurry & having 100 bags to load in my car (might have exaggerated a bit).
I got a six inch on wheat with turkey, NO cheese. Veggies = Lettuce, Spinach, Pickles, Banana Peppers & Green Peppers, Onions, Jalapeños, and almost forgot CUCUMBERS!
Also added a bit of Honey Mustard Sauce (it’s either LF or FF…can’t remember which). The sandwich tasted AWESOME.
*also ate a Naner after my sub, during my drive to B-Town
This afternoon was a fun-filled day of GOLF at Stone Crest golf course in Bedford, then trail walking at the B-Line Rail Trail.
This is part of the B-Line Rail Trail. It was a LOVELY walk today. One of my favorite trails ever. I missed it so much. I was definitely a frequent visitor to it during my time at IU.
The weather was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for ‘outdoor activities’ today! So I could think of no other way I would have wanted to spend my Friday! I golfed & walked with a friend from IU Optometry School, which was super enjoyable since we were able to fill each other in on our lives & the last several months since I left Bloomington. The day flew by.
After the walk, I stopped by my apartment to pick up a few things, then hit the road for Ann’s house in Indy.
Oh, but made one last pit stop for my dinner @ Bloomington Bagel. I splurged —
Whole Wheat & Local Honey Bagel…My FAVORITE from BB.
(please don’t ask why the bagel has no hole in the middle – I’m still trying to figure that one out.)
Torn off & dipped in…
Lite Roasted Red Pepper spread…the best spread, EVER! Not joking.
I couldn’t postpone having my bagel until I got to Ann’s house, so I ate half of it on my road-trip from B-Town to Indy & saved the other half for tomorrow. — It tasted just the same as I remembered it: Oh, so, good!
Cranberry Walnut Salad with Gorgonzola Cheese & house dressing
I also got this yummy side salad (huge for a side salad!) that I was craving from BB. Had to wait to eat it until I got to Ann & Bennie’s house (duh.). They had some grilled chicken left over from last night, so I cut just a few slices up to add to my salad. It was quite tasty. The house dressing came on the side, so I opted to just dip my fork in it before each bite & use it sparingly because I have no idea what the nutrition facts are on it, but my guess it that is a dressing which is NOT low in FAT or Calories! But using just a tad is OK by me – no need to overdue a good thing.
Dessert tonight was a change-up! HOLY COW! Can you believe that? NO special K, or Puffins, or Chocolate Chips!
I went with another Naner because they looked the perfect ripeness (and it was! Cha-ching!) & some yogurt I froze in the freezer shortly after I got to Ann & Ben’s.
I was planning ahead in my head. I knew I would need my ‘sweet treat’ & yogurt frozen in the freezer for a while tastes like ICE CREAM! – It is delish! – I used Light-n-Fit Strawberry.
Hit. The. Spot.
Oh shoot — One thing I left out. I had one of these on my way to Indy as well…
A Diet Dew.
I used to drink Caffeine Free Dt. Dew quite frequently (meaning 1 every other day –ish) but over the past several months I’ve broken that habit & only drink them on occasion now. I think Shakeology helps you to NOT want them or crave them.
The Dew today tasted extra yummy, or I was just super thirsty from all the walking during golf & trail time that it quenched my thirst. Whatever the reason, the diet dew curbed my sweet tooth & helped me enjoy the drive to INDY a bit more!
Ann & I spent the entire night getting ready for the Women’s Health Day at St. Francis hospital in Indy tomorrow. I think we are set & ready with all our stand materials! I’m excited about it, and I know Ann is also.
Well, I’m off to bed for the night since we have to rise & shine quite early in the morning!…but I’ll be whipping up a dose of psyllium husk first! Part of the nightly routine now.
Hoping everyone had an AWESOME Friday the 13th & that you were able to get out and enjoy some of the beautiful weather! Let’s pray it sticks around for a while. – Have a great weekend everyone & remember to get a good workout in tomorrow so you can feel HEALTHY, HAPPY, & ready for the WEEKEND!
Here is the good ‘ol PINTEREST MI to keep you pushing hard this weekend…
This one is saved as ‘ripped arms’ on my computer! I think I picked an adequate name!
I’ll agree to that…now just need to get the FIT feeling back!
If you fail, don’t stop trying. Failing just puts you one step closer to success.
The next time you attempt it, you’ll have more determination & a greater will to succeed.
