An Uneventful Day

Sunday, August 29, 2010

This morning, I did my usual Rocky Peak hike. Pagona, what happened to you?? Missed you! It was really nice. It was just the 3 girls this time. We had such a good time, shmoozing the whole way up & the whole way down. It took us 1 hour & 45 mins. It wasn't hot and it wasn't too cold. I came home & made myself oatmeal pancakes w/ blueberries. They are so yummy! I ended up being on the computer & phone, taking care of girl scout stuff. I didn't get into the shower until about 3:00pm. I didn't eat lunch til about 2:15: a boca burger on a sandwich thin w/ laughing cow cheese. I ran to Trader Joe's to pick up some stuff for dinner. Oh, my USC son came home today to go golfing. He got home at the perfect time. He dropped his sister off at her friends house on his way to the country club. Saved me a trip (& besides, I didn't have a car. DH had to borrow mine for an hour). I had the house to myself! DH & the 15 year old met the other two boys at the country club to play golf. I got to relax!!

DH decided that he wanted those yummy calzones for dinner again. So, that's what I made them. I had a big salad, hummus w/ snap peas & a little bit of the calzone. I have to say, they are quite yummy.

Now, I'm just trying to figure out what I'm going to do the rest of the evening. My son made me a DVD of a movie I wanted to see, so, maybe I'll pop that into the DVD player and watch that. And, of course, have my WW latte bar (unless I give in & take my 15 y.o. to Tutti Frutti). Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I have another busy week, but, it'll all be fine.

Until tomorrow-
~Chana~

Tired!

Saturday, August 28, 2010

This morning, I did my usual: took an hour spin class and then, an hour body sculpt class. Both were great classes. Worked my butt off! Wish that was literally. Came home, took a shower, and then went to do some errands with DH & the princess: the bike store and Costco. Came home, caught up on all my emails and then, took the princess to a birthday party. She had a very good time. Got to see her friends that she hasn't seen all summer. We were there for 3 hours. Nice party!! Came home, had some dinner (seared ahi tun & salad), and now, on the computer.

I've had a headache since Wednesday which is no fun. I'm wondering if it's the weather. I'm hoping this goes away soon. No fun having headaches. My DH asked me if I'm drinking enough. Uh, yeah! I drink over 12 cups a day. I think that's enough.

That's about it for today. It wasn't the best of eating days. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Until tomorrow-

    Just stopped by to read your blog. I see you had a very busy day and you were able to take time for your self and be there for your princess.
Good for you!!!
As for the head ache, I am sorry to hear that this has been going on since Wednesday. I sure hope you feel better.
Like some of the others said, it might just be the weather.
I know that when the weather changes here, I get migraines.
I wish you a wonderful week, pain free and many goals achieved.

    Hey, sorry about that lingering head ache. Kudo's to you for working out even with a headache. Hope you feel better today. It's cooling down so that might help.

    You did an impressive workout. Maybe you need a little more easy days if you are feeling tired. Listen to the body.

    The headache may be the weather or the way we sleep, I have one to. I could chalk it up as an injury from the wreck I was in on Tuesday but I don't think that's it. Weather is definantally a factor. (I have never mastered spelling that right )

We'll all have a better tomorrow :)

T.G.I.F

Friday, August 27, 2010

Last night, my 18 year old came home from golfing and said, "Mom, I shot one under par on the back nine!" He was on such a high that he invited his little sister out for breakfast. I, of course, gave him money for it, but, he offered to take her. In doing so, he took his brother to school. That meant that I could go to the gym early. And, that's what I did. I was able to get in a good 35 minutes on the arctrainer before my boxing class. Then, I did another 35 minutes on the arctrainer. Felt good! Came home, caught up on email, ate a snack & finally, took a shower around 11:30.

My USC boy popped on home b/c he had to pick up his license. It finally came in the mail. He brought his laundry & went out with his friend for lunch. I think I saw him for all of 5 minutes. Oh well. He'll be back on Sunday to play some golf. I took the princess to the mall so we could get her soccer bag embroidered with her name on it. She was so excited! We came home after picking up my son from school & she ended up falling asleep on the couch. I had to wake her up to go to her first soccer practice. She was sleepy, it was so funny. She had a great time at her practice. After it was over, she says to me in the car, "That was so much fun. I'm glad I'm doing soccer, and not because I'm playing with Alli (her best friend)!" My DH said that she better not like this better then tennis. We shall see. I ran her over to the country club so she could go swimming. Didn't stay very long b/c she was bored. Fine with me. Came home, had some dinner & now, I'm typing out my blog.

Today was an ok day. I didn't eat very much. Wasn't all that hungry. Never really ate a full meal. I also just realized that I didn't have any vegies today. Gotta fix that tomorrow. Looking forward to my usual Saturday morning workout: spin & body sculpt class. Probably a little extra cardio, too.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Until tomorrow-
~Chana~

Woo Hoo! (second try)

Thursday, August 26, 2010

I hate when this happens. In the middle of typing my blog & bam, lose everything. I'll try my best to retype everything. Weighed in on Tuesday and.....I lost 1.4 lbs. So happy!! Felt great. Met two friends after to work on girl scout stuff. We have to be ready for the year. Took the princess to lunch. We met her friend & her teacher. Had a big salad & chicken. It was very yummy. After, we were off to a birthday party. It was our cousin's 8th birthday and she had a bubble party. Here are some pics of Rachel in a bubble:





That night, I had the PTA meet and greet the principal party. Brought all my goodies with me. Well, as I took everything out of the car, I dropped one of my cakes. UGH!!! Wasn't happy. The party was really nice. DH ended up coming for a little bit which made me very happy.

Wednesday, I went to the gym and took a body sculpt class & did some cardio. Came home, did a few things & then, met my sister and her 3 boys at the ice skating rink. Nope, I did not go ice skating. I am a spectator, thank you very much. They were out there for 3 hours. I was a bit cold, but I got to warm up b/c I had to run out and pick up my son from school. Rachel wanted to stay w/ her cousins. Back and forth, back and forth. Story of our mommy loves!! That night, we went to the Farmer's Market and got some vegies. Then, we went to the country club so DH & Rachel could play tennis. Then, Rachel wanted to go swimming. Mind you, it was 8:00 already, but she went. Didn't last long. By the time we came home, I was ready for bed.

Today, did spinning at home. Took Rachel to her friends house & I went to do errands. Picked her up & we went to sport Chalet to get her soccer stuff. Her first practice is tomorrow. I'll try to take pics.

My eating has been pretty good these past few days. The scale hasn't moved since Tuesday, but I'm okay with that. As long as it doesn't go up, I'm good. Hopefully by next Tuesday, the number will be down again.

Hope you all are doing great. Oh, btw, all that stuff I baked: I've only had 2 little pieces of the cookie brittle. I think that's a major accomplishment in my book. I do have to tell you all that I was on such a high that day. I was so happy being in that kitchen, baking, doing something I just love to do. I would much rather bake then cook!!

Until tomorrow (I typed it, so now I have to do it, right?)-

    Those bubbles look fun!! Gotta write that down - bubble party! Of course not sure how I'm going to get away from a Star Wars themed party - Geez!

I can't believe you would bake all that stuff and not eat more than two measly pieces of cookie brittle - phhttt! I'd start growing right there in the kitchen!!

A Busy Monday

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

I wanted to do this earlier, but, didn't work that way. It's been a long, busy day. Got up about 6:25 b/c i had to take my son to school. Dropped him off & ran to the gym. Thank goodness my other one is still home on some days to watch the princess!! Took a body sculpt class (upper body) and did the arctrainer for an hour. Got home about 10:30ish and was in that kitchen for over 2 1/2 hours. Going to a PTA meet and great the new principal (I'm on the board this year, executive v.p.) on Tuesday & I told my friend that I would bring dessert. Well, I went a little crazy. I made: cookie brittle (had to double it so my family could have), chocolate pudding cake & cinnamon roll bundt cake. Then, I decided to get things ready for dinner, so I did some prepping. DH came home for lunch & I warned him: DO NOT EAT THIS STUFF!! He wasn't too happy, so, I told him I'd make him a chocolate pudding cake later. Finally, at about 1:15, I got to eat. i was starving. I had a boca burger on a sandwich thin w/ sauted mushrooms & onions. I ate every bit!!

After, the princess & I ran to the deli to get pizza dough & then, to Target to return & shop, Had to buy a pan for DH's pudding cake. He ruined the only one I had & didn't realize it until I went to make the cake. Picked up my son from school &, I was back in the kitchen again. While that was in the oven, I caught up on emails. Next thing I knew, it was 5:10 & I was out the door to the gym. I wanted to try a new class: mat pilates. It was a good class. I think my abs might be a bit sore tomorrow.

Came home at 7:00 & made dinner: home made calzones. And, no, that's not what I had. I made myself a salad w/ a chicken burger (they're so yummy THIRDXACHARM!!). Threw it in a frying pan sprayed w/ pam & WHALA, my dinner was made. I did taste the calzone & it was quite good. I had to do 3 different kinds: plain cheese, cheese w/ spinach, cheese w/ spinach, mushrooms & olives. Mind you, the mushrooms were fresh (I cooked them earlier) & the spinach was thawed out and heated up in the microwave.

after cleaning up, I sat down at my computer to blog. "Hey, want to take the dogs for a walk with us?" How could you say no? So, off we went, all 5 of us (the 6th is back at USC!!) for a walk. I think I did enough exercise for the day. Now, I'm ready to go put my feet up and have a WW latte bar.

Tomorrow is WW!! Hoping to see some good results. I will keep you all posted.

Until then-
~Chana~

I was thinking about you when I got off the freeway to go to my meeting at 10:45am, then I got to Powerhouse at 1:30, I had a long meeting, I did sign up for another year. so here is what I will do. once a week I will meet you at powerhouse and once a week you need to meet me out here, don't know what we will do yet out here but we will figure it out.

I could not handle making all those yummy things and not have any of it.
