Today I woke up at 7 & hopped out of bed to grab pen & paper. Then returned to bed to make out my ‘Tackle-It Tuesday’ List! I was super pumped about going for a nice RUN this morning because the weather was perfect. And because the INDY Mini is less than 3 weeks away! Cannot wait.
I also have the reward on my mind for meeting the INDY Mini goals I set…
New GARMIN watch, GPS & Heart Rate Monitor!
Hope I achieve the goals. If not, no watch.
However, once I got up I realized my knees were SUPER sore from all the STEP workouts yesterday. Made me opt to postpone the run & get started on my TO DO list.
First up on the list was unpacking all my bags from INDY yesterday, since I had only managed to carry them in from my car to my room yesterday. After unpacking, I straightened my room then moved on to task two. Vacuuming & cleaning out the inside of my car. It needed it horribly.
Before I tackled the inside of my car, I made a pit-stop in the kitchen to prepare a quick breakfast.

Lunch today was at Old School Café with a friend. I had never dined there – it’s a tiny local restaurant on 4th street. Lots of things to choose from. I went with a grilled chicken wrap (the wrap was a spinach wrap! YUM.) with lettuce, tomato, and a little cheese. I also used FF Ranch to dip it in for some added flavor. It was very yummy. They served it with chips & a pickle spear…ate the pickle, didn’t touch the chips.
After lunch I was back to business. Since I did the inside of the car this morning, I tackled the outside this afternoon. Soph sat outside on her leash while I washed my car & got some sun grass stains. She rolled around in the yard the whole time. Crazy pup. Speaking of crazy pup, check out this pic from the weekend…
I was brushing Soph & decided to give her a little up-do. Hah!
Rest of afternoon was spent organizing spring clothes & picking up the house. I was a cleaning/organizing machine!
Snack time this afternoon consisted off…
Serving of Special K cereal & a few chocolate chips + the rest (a small bit) of a dark chocolate Easter bunny.
This was after I had already enjoyed my XOCAI Healthy chocolate Nugget a little earlier.
The nugget just didn’t tame the sweet tooth today. Bummer.
Went to the Y this evening to give a lady a personal training session. It is her fourth session & I can tell such a huge difference in her strength already! Which I’m SUPER excited about. I can tell she loves working with me & I enjoy working with her as well because she is determined & dedicated to reaching her fitness goals!
After work came the dentist, & after that came dinner. Dinner tonight consisted of a wrap and salad.
All the ingredients I need to make a YUMMY turkey wrap.
Halfway finished. Base = Whole Wheat Tortilla, LF Light Swiss Cheese, Mustard, Purple Onion, Sweet Pickles, Broccoli Slaw
on top of that I put Honey Roasted deli Turkey & Romaine Lettuce.
Finished Product. Mmmm!
I took this wrap into my grandma and grandpa’s house to enjoy because I almost always eat dinner with them on Tuesday evenings. Well, she had salad waiting for me as usual. So I had a small bowl of salad to go with my wrap.

As if I didn’t have enough to eat today, my grandmother had a sweet treat waiting for me (Ugh! Why do you tempt me grams?). I told you I need to work on WILL POWER. I really tried to resist, but it looked too tasty. And I love Apple Pie.
I will say (in my defense)…this was a small plate (like one you put a coffee cup on to serve) & my helping of Apple Pie + Vanilla frozen yogurt was just enough to satisfy me.
At least I used the ‘moderation’ rule tonight! – But still, the dessert was not needed…& now the feeling of REGRET has set in.
Therefore, I need to work harder on DISCIPLINE & WILL POWER.
(Ring a bell?…Easter post, perhaps? I haven’t forgotten this one.)
I’m gearing up for an EVENING Workout tonight since I didn’t get much of one in today. I got some arm exercises, lunges, and squats (with a medicine ball) in tonight when I was personal training, but other than that, I allowed time to slip away today. Tonight will be an AB workout — P90x ABS — and perhaps also a Brazilian Butt 20 minute workout I brought home from Ann’s to try. This is my ‘easy day’ & tomorrow I shall return to business.
I guess I used my ‘Tackle-It Tuesday’ attitude to tackle everything else on my TO DO list, so left myself zero time for a workout – Super unusual for me. But enjoyed being productive all day long!
Hoping everyone else out there was able to get in a kick-butt workout today & also managed to eat healthy.
My meals were yummy & HEALTHY — I just need to cut out those sugary, empty calorie snacks & I’d be good to go. Looks like I have another goal for myself.
Can I interest you in a little PINTEREST MI to get you PUMPED-UP for a ‘sweaty-mess’ Wednesday workout tomorrow!? I’m definitely going to make mine a good one. Hoping for ARM workout, BodyPUMP practice, & a nice run in the beautiful weather scheduled for tomorrow! Excited just talking about it…Whoop!
This is definitely one of my FAVS!
Take PRIDE & have FAITH. – Remember that
Off for a little toning session with Tony Horton & Leandro. Night ya’ all.
