can I just say Oy Vey?
It's been a strange day. Hubs and I wanted to go for a walk, but it's snowing/raining. So we went clothes shopping so we could walk around inside. Hit up Target for some more crazy sales. Got some more of the same shirts I bought last week for 5.48 for 3.00. The dress I got for 17.48 last week? Bought another one for 12.48 this week. It sure pays to live between two targets! On the way home we stopped by a bakery to pick up some rolls for tonights chicken cordon bleu sammies. I didn't look too closely at the calories, I saw 180 apiece. Except the bag has four nutritional information sections, each with different calories!!!!! The rolls we bougth at 390 calories APIECE!!!!!! Argh, so now I am eating half a roll. Sad face.
I let the hubs buy donuts for himself. He got two Boston Cremes. I treated myself to a cheese danish, because I love them but never eat them anymore. I'm really glad I checked the calories before I dove into it. MORE THAN 600 CALORIES FOR ONE FRICKIN' DANISH. I know I'm trying to eat more calories today but this bakery is making my life ridiculous.
I ate HALF the danish for a snack, saving the other half for tomorrow. I'm eating half a roll.
Hubs ate both donuts and will be eating two whole rolls with dinner. *facepalm* Our doctor wants him to lose 2 lbs by the next time he sees him. He won't do it I bet. I admit I'm getting a little annoyed by his lack of even trying. But he's a man. *shrug*
So here is the menu for the week:
Tues: Roasted Veggie and Hummus Pitas
Weds: Sausage, black bean and bulgur stuffed peppers
Thurs: Mushroom Swiss Burgers and Tater Tots (Yes, tots. It's a clean-out-the-freezer week)
Fri: Lentil Soup w/ sweet potatos, & spinach
Sat: Spaghetti w/ Marinara and salad
Sun: Phyllo Tuna Melts (I'm making this one up, I hope it's good!)
I just finished doing one of the workouts from the Coach Nicole DVD I bought last week, Sizzle Sculpt. I have never felt so uncoordinated. That woman can do lunges, knee lifts, tricep thingies and swirlie movements ALL AT THE SAME TIME. I've decided when I do DVDs I'm going to remove my FitBit and log them separately. I think it will be more accurate that way.
(Husband is making a lot of noise in the other room and when I asked him what he was doing he said "Something." Something suspicious, I say. Hmrph. -_-)
Also, I am 99% sure I am developing eczema. I'm going to bring it to the doc's attention because it's starting to tick me off. I have big red rashes behind my knees. I do all this work to get fit and my body decides it's going to backfire and make my skin look icky! (My mom has eczema so this is likely.) I'm keeping it well moisturized with Gold Bond lotion.
My mom might be coming to visit me this weekend, since she has to go to a funeral in Delaware of a family friend. I'm sad about the friend dying (I met her once and she was a sweetheart), but I'm happy my mom might be coming. Except now I have to clean the guest room and it's tax season!!! (AKA my desk is a mess because I have extra work to do this month.)
So anyway, I'm hungry and off to finish dinner, which is (half) Cordon Bleu sammies and baby carrots.
PS - I am going to attempt at making Bingley a winter coat he can't pee on.
