The Stress Is Over And Another Early Christmas Gift

Posted by Susan on December 22, 2009

FINALLY !!!!!!!!!! The State exited today ! Inspection complete, and now I can breathe again !!!!!!!!!!!! What a huge load off my mind. I can now focus on the Holiday. What a relief.

Only 2 more days left. I can hardly believe it. I am looking forward to some time off  to regroup and recharge.

Today when I got home from work a little package was waiting for me! I got some Christmas money from a relative and headed straight over to to spend it! I love Old Navy because the clothes fit me well and just about everything is my style.

I got 2 sweaters, wrap shirt, a pair of skinny jeans, and a brown belt. I have a good start on a winter wardrobe now. I also have a lot of things to choose from to wear to Christmas get togethers :).

I slept really good last night, even though I never made it to bed until almost 9:00. That is too late for me, especially after a night of no sleep at all! This morning was my cardio day:

  • 30 min. SS /spin bike
  • 30 min. resistance program / elliptical

I was tired at first, but after the first 10 min. I got into the groove and felt pretty good.

Once I got to work this morning, I dug into my Breakfast Cookie! My stomach growled the entire commute, I was really hungry for breakfast by the time I sat down to eat it.

Lunch today was a Peach Chobani Yogurt with a scoop of vanilla protein powder, and 3/4 c. of Go Lean Crunch. The perfect lunch. Filling, delicious, and super easy.

When I got home, I tried on all my new clothes, then took a hot shower and started on dinner. I need to get to bed really early tonight because tomorrow night I have to do all the prep-cooking for our open house Thursday night. Since I work all that day, I need to get as much done as possible tomorrow. I will probably not make it to bed until late so I need to make tonight an early one.

I decided to make dinner simple tonight.

I thought tonight was a good night for ” breakfast for dinner”. I made a spinach and Laughing Cow Cheese omelet with a lite English Muffin with a few squirts of Olivio. It was so good. Not to mention easy preparation and easy clean up. Bonus!

I ended my meal with a sweet, as usual. A scoop of lite ice cream with chocolate syrup …………..

and 2 peanut butter Christmas cookies!

I am so excited to workout tomorrow morning! Mondays workout left me with a good case of DOMS !!!! [that’s delayed muscle soreness] I was sore EVERYWHERE today! I love it! It is exactly the effect I want when changing up a workout routine. I am looking forward to going another session. This new approach to my circuit training/HIIT workout is fun.

Now I am off to brush my teeth and jump into bed. Big day on the horizon for tomorrow and I need to be rested and fresh for it.

Sleep well!

  1. Cute clothes! I shopped at Old Navy when I was smaller five or six years ago. They do have sizes that fit me now. Perhaps in a few more months I can stop in one and see how it goes.

    Hey there! I absolutely love SKINNY JEANS 🙂 Aren’t they so comfy, gotta love the stretch 🙂 And I see you are a baking enthusiast, I am so EXCITED. I just made a low cal cheesecake spinoff recipe yesterday for 160 calories. It’s actually surprisingly good. I put up the recipe on my blog. I found it in a magazine but changed it completely. I look forward to reading more of your future posts 🙂 Merry Christmas!
