Uknown Food Day

Posted by Susan on September 6, 2009

I slept in this morning ……. Until after 8:00 ! It felt sooooooo good ! When I finally dragged my butt out of bed , I got ready to get my shred workout in for the day. I was NOT in the mood at all ! But I did it anyway !


After making good on my Shred commitment , I had some breakfast . I am keeping it light this morning because I have an unknown food day ahead of me today. My mother in law is having a little get together today for all the August birthday’s in the family. I have no clue what she will be serving so I am preparing myself for anything !

I had an egg with reduced fat cheese on a whole wheat sandwich thin, and some grapes.

I was asked to make brownies for the little party today, so I was up at 10:00 last night baking them ! This side of the family calls me the “Brownie Queen”. They are just the box kind , but I always frost them with chocolate fudge icing …….. that must be why they seem so special to everyone. I will be eating one myself ! I think they are pretty awesome too !

I am working on something special that I will share with everyone either Tues. or Wed. , depending on how much I am able to get done with the remainder of the time I have this weekend ! I am very excited about it and can’t wait to share it with everyone ! So stay tuned !

I am loving my Saturday morning ! I was so tired last night I couldn’t fall asleep ! ever feel like that ?! But once I fell asleep I slept well.

Got up this morning and got in my Shred workout and 20 min. HIIT on the spin bike. We are at the halfway point of Level 1 ladies !!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are getting it done !!!!! I feel strong and lean. I really love what this workout is doing for me ! I am really impressed with it so far !

After Shredding this morning I had breakfast. Chobani yogurt with Zoe’s granola and an apple.I am getting to love this stuff. I am amazed at how much more filling and satisfying it is than my usual yogurt. It really hit the spot , because after the working out I am ready to eat !

I am off to straighten out the house so we can get to today’s doings ! Have a great Saturday !

Sunday Morning / Monday Mini-Goals

Posted by Susan on August 9, 2009

As I say every Sunday morning ………. I love them ! We slept in this morning , and it felt GREAT ! I really needed it ! I’ve been up late this weekend because I have become addicted to to Bejeweled 2 ! So the extra sleep was definitely welcome.

We went to a local diner for breakfast . I did some research and found that having 2 eggs over easy, Canadian Bacon, an English Muffin, and potatoes is less calories than my usual omelette’s. Plus it is a LOT of food ! I am full , but not in a gross bloated way. I forgot to bring my camera into the diner (duh !) so not pics of this yummy meal. But it was a perfect Sunday breakfast .


After we ate , we decided to get in a hike before it started to rain. We did about 1 and 1/2 miles in. Nothing big , but it was still nice. Plus I worked off some of my breakfast !


Right now I am relaxing with a cup of green tea, and planning out in my head what I will do for the remainder of the day.
I have most of the preparation for the week done, so I will be doing some “personal maintenance” , touch up my roots ( I need to do it myself between colors), give myself a facial, whiten my teeth, etc…… I also want to get in some easy SS cardio, make lunches for tomorrow, and finish a book I am reading.
If I don’t get to all of it ……. oh well ! It is Sunday ! They are made for relaxing !
Monday Mini-Goals:
  • Keep trying to maintain 3 meals a day : I did OK last week with it. A few times I had to break into my lunch and eat the fruit I’d packed for dessert, but all in all I did OK. At least I was eating because I was hungry , not just because it was time !
  • Drink 3 cups of Green Tea per day : I read an article in Oxygen Magazine about the benefits of green tea. Sounded good , so I figured I would give it a try. I already drink 2 cups a day so I will just add one more.
  • Get to bed on time !: Not doing to well with that lately ! I really need to get back to it. I will make an extra effort to do it this week.
  • Go back to one 24 hour fast a week : I did it twice a week when I was reducing. My weight has been all over the place lately. I am definitely fluctuating ! I am just going to try it one day a week again and see how it goes.
  • Get in all of my water : I do pretty well , I always get in at least 8-10 glasses, but I like to get in 24 glasses a day. My goal this week is to get in all 24, every day.

So on to another week ! I hate to see the weekend end …….. but another one is only 5 days away, and the way the weeks are flying it will pass in no time !!!!!
