ouch ouch ouch... that is what you would hear if you walked past our house. The other day I started 30 Day Shred again. I went through the program last year and was really happy with it. I got hit by the running bug and started to skip the DVD and go outdoors and run my heart out. I love running but seriously it's out outdoors and it's hard to run on snow laden roads that are icy! I like both of my legs thank you very much. k/d Although it would be nice to get out there and try out the new moisture-wicking winter clothes that I got for Christmas.
So I did one video and now I'm whining, yes I admit to it. My poor, dear husband has the hardest job in the world since I do not deal well with pain. Thankfully I made the time to get online and read some other blogs. Now I have the motivation once again to work through my pain and start shredding again tonight. Love the pain, I'm embracing the pain... Well, that is my intention for today at least.
Yoga is needed!

Two more days and counting and I have lost the total ability to stay focused... My spirits are so high, similar to children just before winter break begins, I just can't seem to get work done. Since my husband and I have the same birthday, we tend to have a pleasant time just together! We take off work and spend the whole day together, which is the best present in the world. I simply can not wait!
Anyways... to keep on talking about my motivation for keeping to my plan: Today I am going to try a new hummus that is offered by Trader Joes. I am truly sorry if I keep mentioning Trader Joe's and Whole Foods Markets if you do not have one close-by, they are wonderful! We used to live in a part of Chicago that didn't have either, so it was hard to travel to one for normal groceries. Now it is just a simple 20 minute drive to get there - thank goodness! So, today I am thrilled to try out black olive hummus which is about 50 calories per 2 tbsp. Yum! I'm going to place it on a low-cal tortilla with lettuce and other veggies to make a splendid little wrap. To side it off I'm going to make a Romaine Lettuce Salad with New Bean Salad mix on it.
To make New Bean Salad Mix at home like me: (from Chatelaine Magazine Online)
19 oz Chickpeas
2 chopped firm tomatoes
1/3 cup black pitted olives
4 thinly sliced green onions
1/4 c. italian or other vinaigrette dressing (we have 80 calorie Trader Joe's Tuscan Italian Dressing - I was lazy and didn't want to make my own this week)
Mix it all together and eat. Stores for a few days but the tomatoes start to get a little soggy after that... (hehe Sorry, it's just about lunchtime so it's on my mind)
