Yesterday was okay. I had the hardest time getting Spark videos to load through Internet Explorer, and they wouldn't start at all in FireFox. In IE they kept freezing while I was trying to exercise. It was frustrating. I did the 10 minute cardio kickboxing video that is part of the New You bootcamp and the 6 minute butt buster, and tried to do the 11 minute chair cardio workout but couldn't view it for longer than a few minutes.
This annoys me because I love SP videos. How do I make them run smoothly in either browser?
It occurred to me that my schedule for the 21 day challenge is saved on the computer that we're not able to start up. Joe's taking it in today to have it sent away for servicing, hopefully they'll be quick about it. I hate this Gateway laptop and Windows 8!
I made a yummy but fairly high calorie pasta lunch... 1 c. farfalle pasta w/ 1 cup broccoli, 1 c. chopped mushrooms, and pesto sauce. I never know how to count the calories for the pesto. I use McCormick's pesto seasoning packets and they call for 1/2 c. water and 3 tbsp. oil with the seasoning. But the serving is listed only for the dry seasoning in the nutrition info.
Anyone have a pesto recipe that doesn't call for so much oil? I always find mine too watery making it the way the package suggests, too.
Anyway... time to get ready for work. Looking forward to some nice hot coffee. So cold and sleepy today! Our heat was at 64 when I woke up because I turned it down slightly before bed- brrr!
