No Candy Today

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Since it was Saturday I made sure to get in 6 miles on the elliptical.
It was a good thing. Breakfast was light...Ezekial English muffin with PB2. Lunch, however, was another story entirely.
We headed over to the mall so I could get my brows threaded and then I stopped by Sephora to pick up some Philosophy body wash and collect my birthday gift (another Philosophy body wash...score!!!).
My husband decided he wanted Thai for lunch. We had yellow curry chicken with extra potatoes (I don't know why they're so chintzy with the potatoes...potatoes are cheap), chinese broccoli with pork and pork fried rice. Very tasty, but that yellow curry is evil....I always try my best to take as little of the sauce as possible but it's still full of coconut milk.
After lunch we headed over to Whole Foods to do some grocery shopping.
For dinner we ended up going to a Mexican chicken place. We shard some very tasty grilled chicken, rice, beans and tortillas. Definitely a lot lighter than lunch.
Today I had no candy. Actually I didn't even want any. Some days are sweets days and some days are not. I just try to have more non-sweets days.
Happy Sunday! For all of you celebrating Valentine's Day early, Happy Valentine's Day!!

    I renamed Valentine's day to Kindness day as I was working with a couple who weren't looking forward to it -- my daughter called it "Singles Awareness Day" in middle school.
Congrats on the 6 miles! I love the culinary adventures -- it's much better that eating a lot of pretend food products and then calling it healthy!

    Eyebrow threading is very big here too. Most the westerners wax and most the eastern descendants thread - very old school.
Sephora sounded like it was fun, but then Sephora almost always is. :)

    Nat, did I miss your birthday???? Happy birthday! I hope it was wonderful. I think I remember us talking about how both of our birthdays are in Feb. :) Great job on no candy!!
Which Philosophy body wash do you like? I am a beauty product junkie so I am always trying new things. I think I sampled some philosophy products a while ago (bought a travel size to try) but not the body wash. I didn't like the moisturizers everyone is so crazy about.
We had Thai Friday night for dinner. Yummmmm. Happy Sunday to you and happy Valentine's Monday. We are going out a day late, on Tuesday night.

M&M's For Lunch

Friday, February 11, 2011

Luckily the inspectors finished up yesterday so the hospital feels a whole lot happier. However, it's been quite an aggravating day at work. Busy morning looking up patient information for a study that's 3 years old. We're in the process of having the paper published but one of the reviewers sent 30 questions he wanted answered before we could publish the paper. Most of these questions aren't even relevant to the study itself. That just makes looking up the information even worse. Those peanut M&M's were just calling to me and today I decided I'd have some. Only about a serving and I'll just call it lunch because now I'm not hungry for the one I brought. It's a frozen low fat chicken burrito. I guess that's what I'll have on Monday. Some days a sweet treat really does satisfy. It even has some peanuts for fiber and protein.
I'll be doing my Muscle & Fitness Hers strength training routine when I get home and maybe 30 minutes on the elliptical to burn off a little of the M&M's.
I am really ready for this weekend. It's been a super stressful week. A little R&R is just what I need.
Happy Friday everone!!!

Hey, It's Thursday. Awesome!!!

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Not to bad a day at work. I got in at 5:30 and starting going about my day. My boss emailed at 6:30 to tell me he was taking leave today. I emailed him back to ask if I could leave early to read. He emailed back that he needed me to email him something from his computer and then I could go. I left at 8:30. I did actually do the reading I needed to do. I was unable to get any done at work. There was just too much tension in the whole hospital with the inspectors around.
I got in 6 miles on the elliptical for the SF to UK relay...that reminds me I have to put in those miles.
I boxed up the cookies so that when my husband comes home he can take them to our friend tonight.
I have no idea what I'm going to make myself for dinner. I guess I should go down and see what I've got.
A good day!
Have a great night!

Guess Who Baked Some Cookies?

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Today was my day off of exercise. Very weird. I did do my Quickfire Challenges for the day...high marches and shadowboxing. I also danced around a little bit but definitely didn't do anything hardcore.
Lots of aggravations at work. Just one of those days. I didn't see any inspectors, though.
I baked some cookies for a friend's birthday. They are espresso chocolate chip.

We had some whole wheat pasta shells with home made pasta sauce, Trader Joe's Organic Foursome vegetables and some turkey meatballs. Very tasty.

My package with ChaLEAN Extreme showed up today. When I opened up the case with the DVDs, some of them were off the spindles (and the spindles were actually not even attached to the's got weird packaging). They had some scratches on them so I figured I should watch them to make sure they would play okay. I did get through most of one of the discs and it was okay. I'll have to finish check it out and check the other one. Hopefully they'll be fine and I won't need to get a replacement. I'm waiting to start the program when my friend LENKEES is ready to start. She had injured her back and is currently not exercising. I'll just continue my Muscle & Fitness Hers routine until we're ready to go with ChaLEAN.
Just two more days this week. We can totally do it!!

I had to read that grant application once more today. We need to make sure that the copy that is submitted is the same as the copy we wrote. My boss said he couldn't stand to look at it again because he's too tired of it. Fair enough, he wrote it. So I spend a good part of my morning looking that over. Also had a lot of data to look at and enter into our excel spreadsheet. Luckily, I saw no inspectors today.
I did get in some elliptical this afternoon...5 miles, not too shabby. I realized today as I was recording my miles and calories burned on my calendar that I hadn't taken a day off in almost 2 weeks. I think I will start taking Wednesdays off. I pretty certain that 2 total body strength workouts a week is adequate. Is this true? Feel free to give me your opinion on this. I don't want to take a weekend day off because I tend to eat more on the weekends (I think that's a pretty common occurrence for most people) and I'd like to be burning some calories. I also tend to walk around more on work days than I do if I'm just at home.
We had some Jennie-O turkey burgers for dinner. I had mine on an Eating Right Sandwich Slender (the Safeway knock off of the Oroweat/Arnold/Earthgrains Sandwich Thins). My husband had his on regular buns. He decided he wanted chili burgers so we opened a can of turkey chili since we didn't have any left from the potluck. A side of asaparagus and it was a very nice dinner.
Tomorrow brings another opportunity to dodge the inspectors. I've got some reading to do at work and some supplies to get ready for our study participants.
Have a great night. We're nearly halfway through the week.

I don't have good luck with that. I should take a cooking class or two! My standby( and what I'm having for lunch today) is homemade turkey chili.

    It's Wed -- so happy rest day! You may find that resting gives you more progress! I think that I've heard that 2x week strength training is good for maintenance and 3-4x is good for pushing progress. I've also heard that some people prefer to strength train every day, alternating muscle groups in order to give rest. See what fits you best. If 2x gives you what you want after a month, keep it there. If not, add something. Your cardio input is fantastic! emoticon

Report Inappropriate Comment
MISSMITSY 2/9/2011 6:56AM

    Two is adequate if you're doing full body sessions, 3 would be the maximum you would do because you need to rest the muscle groups in between, especially since you often do other strength work...

    Sounds like you are a busy woman. I generally take one weekend day off because I find it easier to work out when I am home alone in the mornings after DH has gone to work. You definitly need a day off once and a while.

I am taking the day off work to recover from this nasty cold I have. I can't be sick tomorrow because there is payroll to be done, which of course means mine too. I may walk on the treadmill later today but I will have to see how much energy I have. Hope you have a good day today.

    Good luck dodging the inspectors!! That might be a good new workout! ;) I sometimes go a little too long without a rest day but I've been taking a couple Fridays off here and there. Wednesday is a good day off to break up the week a little! Have a great rest of the night!!
