So Sunday is typically the first day of the week for most. It's kind of funny. My job uses a Monday to Sunday work week... so Monday, for me, is the first day of the week and Sunday is the last day of the week.
And boy, let me tell you, THIS week starting tomorrow better be a whole lot better than last week (work wise). I am going to wake up tomorrow and I am going to listen to Zig Ziglar on the way to work and I just know it is going to be a fabulous day!!!
I did the gym 3 days in a row!!! Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Although today, we made a major blunder and I can guarentee it will NEVER happen again. We had a busy day. Drove to the fruit farm, went to the post office, went grocery shopping and went to they gym. Somehow, we forgot to eat lunch so when we got home from shopping we decided to have some lunch before hitting the gym. After lunch, we chilled for about 30 minutes then drove 20 minutes to the gym... Let me tell you. I will NEVER again eat a meal within 2 hours of going to the gym. I just did not feel right the whole time. I felt like I couldn't get my speed up, although I was doing what I usually do (hmm maybe I am getting used to it) and I was like, feeling blahh inside and I knew it was from the lunch before gym.
Besides that. Nothing much going on. I'm hoping to score some Red Sox tickets this season --- loge box or better would be nice. I'm not much of a grandstand person. Went to about 6 games last year -- scored awesome seats for most of them..... (free too!!) Go RED SOX!!
Hubby hates baseball season... I get nuts!! I yell at the T.V.... I get excited and I get very LITTLE sleep when they are on the west coast 'cause the games don't start until 10 pm my time.
OH.. I just remembered I am supposed to dig out some books for a girl at work. Gotta run so I can find them... This is big, I get to give away some of my trillion books I have cluttering my house!!! Yayyyyy !

I feel so blaaaahh
I think I ate too much.
Dinner was a tomato and cucumber salad -- turkey slices, gravy, potato, broccoli and carrot strips.
TOTOAL = 422 CALORIES (including dressing for my salad -- you gotta try wish bone fat free italian -- it is to die for!)
Why am I sooooo stuffed?
I'm tired too (lol, must be the darn turkey ! Noooooo, it's not thanksgiving!)

ok so Sunday hubby and I tried making the apple chips recipe from sparkpeople. I caution you all from this.
a. It takes over 2 hours for the apples to cook
b. You need to peel them off the paper and flip them half way through
c. Lost all flavor in the cooking
d. One apple fits on 2 trays to put in oven
e. slicing paper thin is NOT easy
all in all i'd say it is NOT worth the effort!!!
hahahhaaha -- you all didn't think i was throwing in the towel with my heading did you? consider this a belated april fools. :-)
gym time: 45 min treadmill yesterday
last week went to gym 3x
hopefully going today after my hair appointment
on track (hopefully) to reach goal of 265 by june 5th ---- cruise vacation!! wahoo!!
i have 22 lbs to go and 8 weeks in which to do it. what do you think? can i pull of 2.75lbs a week or is that stretching it a bit?
i figured i am down 63lbs since jan 1st --- which is 4.2lbs average. hmmmm i think i can, i think i can, i think i can.... .... .......
i have always had an issue with portion control (distortion is more like it) so i resort to frozen healthy choice or smart balance meals for dinners (along with a cucumber and tomato salad) ---- is that cheating? lol, i suppose if it is working and easy to follow i can't knock it, eh?
we also tried the microwave potato chip recipe. those came out much better, but not sure if they are worth the effort either. we were trying to find a healthy way to satisfy our need for the crunch you only get from chips (you all know exactly what i am talking about, i know you do!) with those, you can only microwave a few at a time and by the time they are done and you move onto the next batch... the first batch is already gone. lol -- yeah, we don't have much patience. so making a batch for an evening snack that you can relax with isn't going to work with us and they are bland if you don't add enough salt or flavoring.
i don't like snacks that are over 100 calories so if any of you have a suggestion to satisfy my chip cravings that is healthy AND filling... please, feel free to toss your ideas my way.
on another note.......... CAN I RETIRE YET !!!!!!!!!
I am ready for it. I am going through this stage where I just do NOT want to be responsible for anyone else's poor performance anymore!!!! what makes people think they only have to do their jobs WHEN THEY FEEL LIKE IT? I'll tell you, the work force is awful today compared to when I was growing up. Back then, we worked and were proud of our work ethics -- today, forget it. Even the adults lack common sense and good work ethics. Does anyone give a proper notice these days? Are there employees out there that DO NOT require BABYSITTING (not their kids, but themselves!). Am I THAT out of touch? What is this ball of wax turning into?
thanks, I just needed to get that off my chest.
You guys are great. Thanks to you and the gym, I am good! lol.

I hope y'all had (or are having) a wonderful Easter!
I made a healthy egg scramble with ham, onion and pepper for hubby and I for breakfast.
We made some microwave chips.
We are still cooking the apple chips -- but I guess they are going to take a lot longer than I anticipated --- I guess they will end up being a snack for tomorrow night.
Hit the gym today... did 63 minutes on treadmill and a bunch of strength exercises. I was bummed they were closing at 3pm -- lol, it threw off my whole routine for the day and the only reason I made the chips is I was BORED.
