Today has gotten off to a good start!  I woke up excited it’s FRIDAY!  Woo-Hoo!!  I have NO plans this weekend and we are going to take it easy!

This morning’s breakfast was an egg wrap made complete with salsa and spicy mustard! 

I used a 1/2 cup egg beaters and wrapped it up in a La Tortilla tortilla.  Great start to a great day! 

I worked out a little this morning.  My week has consisted of the elliptical trainer and a lot of sweat and so today I took it easy and just did 10 minutes on the treadmill to get the blood flowing and spent the rest of my time concentrating on upper body weights and toning.

For my morning snack I had a usual plain greek Fage 0% with cereal mixed in.

Yum!

Who else is excited for the weekend?  Anyone like me happy for the plan-LESS weekend ahead?  Or are you mega busy?

This morning’s B-Fast was an egg sandwich on toasted light wheat bread, with LC cheese spread on.  A side of cantaloupe made it sweet!

So I’ve been running like crazy lately.  Friday I helped at my daughter’s TaeKwonDo fundraiser garage sale.  I was there all morning into the afternoon, and came home only to crash on the sofa for a mid afternoon nap.  Needless to say I didn’t really snap any pictures of what I ate which was just an Apple Pie LaraBar and a slice of the yummy veggie pizza from Pizza Hut.

Some of the food I ate later in the day though was some carrots and peanut butter.

Then it was off to her fight class that evening.  It’s about an hour long and she practices up on her sparring for the upcoming tournament in April.  After dinner we swung by Rosa’s Tortilla Factory and I ordered a shredded chicken salad.  I forgot to take a pic though.  The long day was getting to me.

Later that night, I did try my hand at some homemade Peanut Butter Cups courtesy Love Veggies and Yoga’s recipe.

I burnt the chocolate a little, but they still came out pretty good.  Who does that!?  I do.  If you read up about me I don’t cook, so don’t be surprised.

Sorry about the blurry picture.

I also had a simple bowl of cantaloupe.

Today we waited around for the satellite guy to show up and fix our dish.  Our week without “real” TV is over.  Back to the plethora of never-ending channels and DVR.  Plus for our inconvenience, we received a free week on our next bill and 3 months of Shotime for free.  How nice.

Lunch today was on our way to the grocery store.  When you ask a 5 nd 2 year old where they want to eat what do you think they will say?  If you guessed CiCi’s Pizza you’re right!  Ok, so for like the 3rd day in a row I’m eating pizza.  But this time they had salad to go along with it so I filled up.

I made a huge salad and enjoyed 2 slices of pizza.  A ham and pineapple, and a veggie.

After going to two different stores to get our groceries ( Kroger didn’t have the plain Greek Dannon, so I also tried Albertson’s).

B had picked up a new item for us!  He found some mini red bananas.  Pretty cool huh?

It was tiny, a little mushier than a yellow banana, but tasted pretty much the same.

We both tried the red banana but what I really wanted was a pear!  I cut one of those bad boys up and munched away!

So that’s my day so far.  I still have a ton of stuff to do around the house before the weekend is over, but I may just take it easy and see what happens to my chores when I blink 3 times and wiggle my nose a little.

I’ll let you know how that works out…K?

That’s how I feel about today.  Hello…Goodbye!  Where has the day gone?

This post is gonna be short so I can get on with some other things needing my attention this evening.  Dishes, ironing, lunch making for tomorrow.  I try to always make my lunch for the next day the night before.  I never really know what I want, so trying to make that decision at 6 o’clock in the morning makes it just that much harder.  Why struggle?

Breakfast:

Same as yesterday!  Told you!

1/2 cup egg beaters

1/2 cup Fiber One

Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

B doesn’t like egg beaters.  Calls  ’em fake eggs and stuff.  He says they smell funny!!  What!  I don’t see it.

Well that means then I’m the only one who eats them so when it says “Use within 7 days of opening”  I have to do just that.  If I get into an oatmeal kick, I’ll forget about the eggs and I HATE to waste food.

Mid morning snack-age was once again a pear.  Ta-Da!

Served on the fancy linens.

Lunch today was a sliced smoked turkey wrap.  I used Oscar Meyer shaved smoked turkey.  45 calories per 6 slices.  I spread some LC cheese Garlic and Herb on the La Tortilla tortilla and laid down some lettuce leafs and rolled it up!  I added a healthy side of fresh broccoli, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, and black olives.  Mustard was used for dippage off camera.

A couple of hours after lunch I snacked on diced mango, and kiwi.  Tropical and tasty!  Believe it or not, this was the first time I’ve ever had fresh mango.  I really love all fruit,  so this was no exception!

Dinner was, well bad.  Really good in a bad, bad way.

Karate night + whiney baby not being happy at home + late night and a hungry Daddy equals =

?????

I wont even picture it!  It was too grotesque! 😉

I will tell you though I had two slices and it was prepared in a hot oven by:

Yeah, uh-huh! Pizza-pizza baby!

My only redemption is I shred it up with Jillian’s 30 Day Shred though when I got home tonight.  I liked how she alternated the strength, cardio, and abs.  I don’t need to lose weight as much as I need to tone, and maintain so this is exactly what I’m looking for!  I’m excited to get into a routine with this.  It will just mean some early morning butt kicking on my part.

Until tomorrow!  Good night!

I feel so…out of shape!

I hope everybody’s week is moving right along.  My days have started earlier than normal lately.  I am trying to find time to fit in some excercise and I just got The Biggest Loser DVD Cardio Max.

OMG!  Maybe cause I haven’t been keeping up my physical activity lately, but I need a walker.  For real!  The kind with bright yellow tennis balls on the bottom please.  My legs are sooo sore!

I have been getting up at 4:45 to fit in about 20 minutes of level 2 and level 3 cardio.  I know it’s not much, but it’s better than nothing!  I can’t leave the house for a run at 5 am with B needing to leave for work early and the kids asleep.  It’s hard between Big Girl’s karate classes, and needing to be home with the family after work to then go off to the gym.  So home DVD work out it is.

I am waiting on Jillian’s 30 Day Shred to get here.  Iordered it today through Amazon.  I hear that one is the best one to try for a solid effective workout in a short amount of time.  I am defiantly excited to try it out and am looking forward to getting back into getting the physical fitness in there I enjoyed so much last year.  Time is short, and I need more that’s for sure!!

After my cardio session this morning I cooked up  a 1/2 cup of beaters and a bowl of Fiber One.  Probably one of my favorite combinations, and you may (probably will) see it tomorrow.

Mid morning snack was a lovely pear.  Oh so good.

Lunch was thrown together so quickly this morning for being short on what else?  Time!  I cut up some old-fashioned veggies including squash, cucumber, red bell pepper, baby carrot, and tomato.  I nuked a veggie patty and dipped it all in delicious red pepper hummus!  It turned out to be a fantastic lunch!

A couple of hours later I had my daily dose of calcium with vanilla flavored Chobani.  I mixed in some Yogi blueberry flax cereal.

I love, love, love the fact that I am starting to see peaches again!  I can – and might – eat a peach every single day this summer!  I had one this afternoon.

When I got home it was a mad dash to get the girls in the bath while B started dinner.  Remember our satellite went out last Saturday?  Yeah, it’s still out and we are rocking some fashionable rabbit ears on the 57 inch these days.  Well, no satellite means no DVR, which means…panic!  Just kidding, but The Biggest Loser came back on tonight and we didn’t want to miss too much.

Dinner was too good to rush through though.  It was Wacky Pasta night!

I added squash, black olives, red bell pepper, red pepper flakes for some pizzaz, and balsamic vinaigrette with a splash of lemon juice.  Like I said, it was really, really good!

After the girls went to bed (so I wouldn’t have to share) I made some microwaved baked cinnamon apple.

Well everyone, it’s time for me to get things ready for tomorrow.  Hope everyone has a great night!
