Okay so last night's work-out simply did not happen. Once again, I got out of work and headed straight to our new house, regardless of my hopes to go to the gym first, to start working on cleaning the kitchen. It took me over 2 hours to clean half of the cabinets. I could not believe how dirty then were, it was repulsive! But now they are nice and clean and ready for my dishes!!!!!

After that, Hubby-to-be's mother took us out to dinner. They wanted Applebee's, which has ZERO vegetarian options. I mean even their tomato soup was beef based.... so I ordered the Spinach and Cheese Raviolis w/o the Grilled Chicken. It was COVERED in cheese, so I only ate 3 of the raviolis and called it a night (and I may, or may not, have stolen a bunch of Hubby-to-be's french fries)... So my healthy dinner last night turned into a calorie bomb....

Tonight after work I am NOT going to our new house. I am going take the time to clean our apartment, do the dishes, do some laundry, get caught up on school work, GO TO THE GYM!, and hopefully relax.

I decided to take tomorrow off from work too so I have a nice 5 day weekend coming up! So I might not be on Spark too much over the next five days.... but I WILL FOOD BLOG EVERYDAY!!!!!!!!!!

1. Food Blog Tuesday-Sunday
2. Exercise at least 4x between Tuesday-Sunday
3. Get caught up in both MBA classes
4. Enjoy myself and my family without over-indulging!!!!!

    Well at least you can feel good that cleaning those cabinets probably burned quite a few calories.

    We had the same thing happen to us when we moved in our place, filth was everywhere! we did not see it when we looked at the house. The bathtub was thick with dirt, I don't think the man ever washed the bathtub! we gutted the whole thing and brand new fixtures now. Great job on your food choices! Hope you have an awesome Thanksgiving!

    I've got a recipe for a fantastic frozen strawberry margarita pie, although I don't know how Thanksgiving-y it would be. Let me know if you want it and I will sparkmail it to you.

    Being a vegetarian makes it really hard to get low carbs.. and I think that's my issue as well. I'm not against chicken, I just would rather not eat it.. so I'm not a full fledged vegetarian, but I'd rather eat carbs over meats.. they keep me much fuller as well.. so I'm starting to think carb cycling isn't for me, even after only 2 low carb days... It's not like it's making me drop weight quicker either.. so who knows.. I'll keep trying it out for the rest of this week, but I doubt I'm goin to lose (especially with Thanksgiving dinners Thursday, and weigh in is Friday! lol!)
