Day 178 (Friday 5/1)

Happy Friday & May Day everyone!! The work day is over and I’m free for over 2 days!!! :)

I didn’t fall asleep last night till after midnight so it was hard to get up this AM. But I did…enough to say goodbye to DH and then hit the hay again until Abby woke me up at 7:35!!!! AAHHHH!! I have to be to work at 8am! I made it there by 8:04!!!

When I got there I found like on my door handle…a May basket!! I was so tempted just to eat away at it all day since I didn’t have time to eat breakfast, but luckily I only had a Butterfinger and a pb cup…I’m guessing it around 2 points. After that I gave it to a co-worker because I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist it the rest of the day.DSC02401

I made breakfast at work. Oatmeal with blueberries and an english muffin with cream cheese for 4 points. I forgot how much I like oatmeal after not having it for so long!DSC02403 

Around 11am I had my morning snack of strawberries, grape nuts, and yogurt for 3 points. DSC02404 

Lunch today was a repeat of supper yesterday…a crack wrap for 4 points! I couldn’t figure out what I wanted and figured this was quick and easy! I also had a VitaTop with PB2 for 2 points. DSC02405DSC02406

After worked DH and I hit the pavement for a 30 minute run. It is so fun to have a running buddy, I think I like it more than my ipod! We chatted the whole time! Wait maybe I should say talked instead of “chatted”…might be too girly!! ;) Oh and Abby was a better running buddy today…she kept up the whole time!

What do you think of my new header? I really wanted to incorporate some pictures, but I couldn’t find the “right” one(s). So this will have to do for now!

I really had NO idea what I wanted for supper. I was craving another smoothie and DH was wanting me to have a protein shake with him so I combined them! Wow…I think I went overboard on this one…it FILLED my Cuisinart blender (not sure how many cups). My smoothie contained: 1 c almond breeze, 1 1/2 c strawberries, 1 banana, 1 scoop protein powder, and ice for a total of 6 points. Look how much it made!!! That GIANT Hawkeye mug (Yep…GO HAWKS!!!) is the size of my head!!!DSC02408DSC02411

Since it’s May now I figured I should do a re-cap of my April goals and post my May goals. So without further ado, for your reading pleasure, here are my April goal recaps and May goals! :)

April Goals

1. Continue no Cool Whip during Lent - ACCOMPLISHED

2. Try 2 new WW friendly recipes – ACCOMPLISHED – banana pancakes, fruit dip, crack wraps, and homemade smoothie!

3. Workout 5 days/week – I don’t think I quite made this goal…the beginning of the month was rough.

4. 158 lbs by 4/30/09 – Didn’t hit this goal either…the scale isn’t being nice to me lately, but I’m NOT letting it get me down!!

May Goals

1. Sign up & run Dam to Dam 5K (May 30th!)

2. Blog everyday

3. Workout 5 days/week

4. 155 lbs by 5/31/09

Around 10PM DH got a “wild hair” and wanted to rent a movie…so we hopped our bikes and rode to the video store. In total to and from was a 30 minute bike ride. It was kinda fun to ride at night…not the safest, I know. And I haven’t got a helmet yet either, I think we might get one this weekend!

We are now settled in for the night watching our movie! G’nite my favorite blogger buddies!! Hope everyone has a FAN-TAB-U-LOUS weekend!!

I love that you guys rode your bikes to go rent a movie. That is so cute. :)

Like the new header. Very nice. I wish I were more computer savvy and could "spiff up" my blog.

I have got to try the crack wrap. it just looks like something I would love.

Have a great weekend.
