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-

    I agree with "MSEVERLAST"..that was exhausting to read. But GREAT job! I love days like that when you are completely busy and yet can still find time to exercise.

    you are one busy lady. 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.
