Happy First TGIF Of 2013!!!!

Friday, January 04, 2013

emoticon The first Friday of 2013 is HERE. And you know that means the first WEEKEND of 2013 is but a few hours away! OK so maybe a tad more then a few. But still it's close! We have NO plans for this weekend. We'll do the stuff we always do. Sat will be shopping (although with a tighter budget due to having a car payment now). I told hubby we can't be spending $150 a week on food now. And really I don't think we should be. I mean it's just the two of us. He's going to quit smoking as soon as the last 3-4 packs he has now are gone, which means he won't be spending roughly $40 a week to week and half on smokes. And it's going to So much better for his health...and for mine! Sunday will be cleaning day. I have a lot to catch up on after having Jason here. I spent as much time with him as I could and just the bare min on the house cleaning.

Last night was breakfast night. I wasn't sure what to make for dinner. At Christmas we'd bought a canned ham. Hubby ran it though the meat slicer so I decide to make ham and eggs for dinner. I added some frozen hashbrowns with cheese to my plate and steamed rice to hubby's. It made a nice change for us. Tonight I'm not sure what's for dinner.

Yesterday was a good day as far as calories consumed. I was under my high end of the range. And today has been good so far too. In fact, even though I don't start my workouts here at work until Monday, I have been taking walks around our floor here at work today. Got over 3K steps in so far today!

When I do get back the gym here at work, I'll be going down alone. My workout partner found a better paying job and next week is her last week. emoticon But I WILL still go to work out! I'm not kidding myself..it's going to be tough to start again. I've not worked out now for 3 weeks or so. But at least I Am starting again. Now if only I could get in gear to do the Xbox workouts.

So that's it for this first Friday in 2013. I hope everyone had a great one! Lets roll on into the weekend with positive thoughts!

    Yes, you WILL get back to your workouts at work... (Calen says staring intently at Angel.)

    Do you recognize that old Jedi mind trick? Or do I need to come over there and give you a Vulcan pinch on your neck? emoticon
