Happy Wednesday! Well, I did NOT get in the early morning sweat session today. When the alarm went off I didn’t even realize what was happening and then quickly set it for 30 minutes later said to myself “oh, I’ll workout after work”. See why I need the accountability factor to re-establish my early morning routine? LOL!
While at work today I browsed STUFTmama’s blog and got inspired to try Chia seeds. I decided to venture out to a health food store over lunch to find some. My quest (since Whole Foods isn’t open yet) led me to Campbell’s Nutrition in Des Moines. What a fun experience! Although I was a little rushed due to time I did buy some sunflower seeds, red lentils, dried apple slices and a Raw Rev 100 mini bar – YUM! Um, completely forgot the Chia seeds though….looks like another trip is in order!
Anyway, after a CRAZY busy day at work I did come home and do a quick 20 minutes on the bike. It would have been longer but Hubby wanted to go out for sushi and I had to drop Daughter #1 off at a friend’s house so time was at a premium. This is why it is SO essential for me to get my workouts done in the mornings – otherwise life gets in the way! I must say, though, that although I wish I would have gotten up and hit it first thing, overall I am pleased to be semi back on track with 5 DAYS IN A ROW of exercise! While I may not be losing yet I know I am making healthy steps in the right direction.
Speaking of progress – today I was pretty sensible with my food choices. Again, although I have not started my program yet I am trying to be more conscious about food and exercise choices. The day was pretty good with only a couple stray dips in to the cracker box! Dinner at Aparre was YUMMY – we got a couple rolls and wine (of course). Hubby is off all week and so are the kiddos so we are kind of still in “Holiday Break” mode. This was NOT a normal Wednesday night dinner!
Tomorrow is another day at work and then maybe some grocery shopping for the weekend. We will likely stay in for NYE so the hubby and I are trying to decide what to make. I am thinking seafood but he seems to think if we have SURF we must also have TURF! The deciding factor may be how hungry we are when we go shopping!
