Today I HAD to get up to go to the gym. I met a friend at a tire place to drop off her vehicle. Then we were going to workout together, so I had no choice! The alarm went off at 5:20 and hopped right out of bed excited to hit the gym. I picked her up and then got in a 45 minute sweat session on the cross ramp! Boy could I tell I hadn’t worked out in a while, my legs were weak!
I made breakfast at work. Similar to yesterday, except today I used regular PB2 and found out I think I like the chocolate PB2 better in my oatmeal! So breakfast was a total of 4 points, super delish!
While I was eating I checked out a few of my fav blogs! And I also updated my stats on my side bar to the left. Unfortunately I am heavier than when I started the “Sister Challenge” back in December. But one good thing for me (not for my sisters tho) is that none of my sisters have met their 8% either…so technically the challenge is still on! I WANT to win…and obviously not for the cash, but to feel better! Ultimately though I really would like to be 150….24.5 pounds…I can do this!!!
Around 5pm I grabbed this to give me a little extra energy that I needed to finish up my day at work! It was just ok. When I stopped at the store this morning I was hoping to find a Cherry Coke Zero, but they didn’t have any. :( Then I thought I would get a Diet Cherry Pepsi and they didn’t even carry that, so I had to settle for this! But it was the caffeine/0 point snack I needed to get a few extra hours of work in!
I worked till about 6ish and then decided I needed to call it a day. Kyle was off work today so I figured maybe we could get some cuddle couch time in!! ;) And can I say that I have a wonderful man, he had the house spotless when I got home, thanks baby!!
I knew I wanted to get some veggies in for supper since the serving amount of broccoli in my lunch was pretty pitiful! So I had a generous serving of steamed cauliflower, an orange, and a chicken salad sandwich w/cheese (on a whole wheat sandwich thin) for a total of 5 points.
I was adding my daily points and it only came to 15 after my supper tonight so I knew I needed to get something else in for the day. Searching through the fridge and freezer I remembered all the wonderful smoothies I had all summer long and decided to make one…even though it isn’t summer! I used 1+ cup of frozen mixed berries, strawberry yogurt, and 1/2 c skim milk (not pictured).
And voila, here is my perfectly purple smoothie for 3 points!
So now I’m sipping on my smoothie with the hubs watching CSI thinking about hitting the hay fairly soon so I’m ready for another great day!
