Wednesday: Thursday Can’t Come Quick Enough !

Posted by Susan on August 26, 2009

The countdown begins ! One more day and I am free ! My 4 day weekend begins tomorrow at 3:30 pm SHARP!

This will be my last easy weekend. For the month of September I will be house/dog sitting. That means a trip to to feed and let the dogs out in the mornings before work and then again after work. I will need to get up an hour earlier every morning. (in other words, in order to get my workouts in I need to get up in the middle of the night, pretty much !)

It will be a challenging month , but at the end of it I will have a week’s vacation to look forward to !

I am going to have to completely revise my routine in order to fit everything into my day. I am determined to make it work ……… I have to keep reminding myself it is only a temporary thing !

For the month of September , the plan is to do Jillian Micheal’s 30 Day Shred every day and add 20-30 min. of HIIT on either the treadmill or the spin bike. I can blog from the house I am sitting for so that will not be a problem.

The goal for the month is to keep up my food and exercise routines as best I can, and to not allow myself to make excuses. Wish me luck !

This morning I got up and did 30 min. circuit training and 30 min HIIT on the treadmill.

This stuff had become a breakfast MUST ! I love it ! It is natural and only 170 calories for 2 T. (I only have one). It makes any kind of cereal delicious ! It is sweet but not too sweet and for me it hits the spot !

This morning I paired my yummy chocolate peanut butter with oatmeal , and Kashi Cocoa Beach Granola. This is the best cereal ever ….. a little chocolaty flavor with coconut and almonds.

For morning snack I had an apple with some reduced fat peanut butter.

Around 11:00 am , I had another one of my trusty peaches ! It looks a little beat up from being in my lunch bag but it tasted like heaven !

Lunch was tuna salad in a wrap ….the wrap tore in my lunch bag ….. it isn’t pretty , but the looks took nothing away from the taste . I also had a 90 calories bag of Special K Tomato Basil crackers.
Not pictured is 1/2 a bag of dark chocolate M&M’s ……….. Could my subconscious be trying to block it out???????

Dinner was a turkey burger in a whole grain sandwich thin, 3 oz. ( I used my new scale to weigh it out exactly !) of french fries , and some spinach with reduced fat cheese sprinkled in top.

Dessert ……… 10 Dark Chocolate Hershey Kisses !!!!!
I am stuffed ( in a good way not a sick way) from dinner and getting ready to read and fall asleep ! Today was busy and I feel drained. The next time you hear from me I will be the happiest blogger in the universe !

    I havent tried that one but I bought the White Chocolate version last Friday… oh my god… it is fabulous!!

    I guess there is an actual PB store in New York, thinking of checking it out while I'm out there over Labor Day weekend.

    Also, I have NEVER seen that kashi cereal… I'll have to check out Whole Foods.
