Happy Monday Sparkies!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
My weekend was full of relaxing, small indulgences, and tons of exercise!!!
This weekend I indulged my cravings, but I did so in way that was healthy and mindful of my choices. I do not feel like I splurged and I did not go over my ranges either... It was a successful weekend!!! ... I even did more cardio and ST than usual on the weekend! I burned over 1,500 calories in just Saturday and Sunday alone!!!
And.... today begins another start to the work week... and it is going to be a busy one! Not only do I have substantial work to do in the office, but I also have to start working on a Research Paper for my MBA, as well as finish up another group project due by the end of this week!
But on a good note... I am mailing out the first half of our save-the-dates today and then hopefully mailing the second half tomorrow afternoon! That is a HUGE check off of my to-do list!
I did get a whole lot of errands and cleaning done yesterday so at least my home life is organized and stocked with healthy choices for the week to come!!!
We close on our house in 10 days!... I can't wait to officially be able to say that I am a HOMEOWNER!!!
... and I am getting MARRIED in 6-months from today!!!! I can't wait to say "I DO" in front of all our family and friends!!!
I also noticed this morning that I am only 208 Fitness Minutes away from meeting my 2010 fitness minutes goal!!! I should easily meet my goal, and surpass it, this week!!!
Now onto today's food blog:
1 egg with 1/8 cup of shredded mexican cheese on two slices of Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Bread with 1 serving of Pomegranate Acai Juice
