Good morning my favorite blogger friends!! :)
Wednesday I was still working on kicking this cold that’s trying to come on. I skipped my morning gym workout to get some extra zzz’s. I also took some rapid release Tylenol to help with my pounding head and I found some Airborne in the medicine cabinet and took one of those as well. Hopefully my stubborn-ness keeps it away too! ;) I’m staying positive!!
Oh and thanks for all the tips! I appreciate it. I’m going to by some ZICAM nose spray when I’m at the pharmacy today…but I’m not so sure about the peroxide in the ears! ;) But hey, I guess if it means I won’t get sick I should try it, huh?!?!
Before all my morning meetings started I mixed up my morning snack of strawberries, ww vanilla yogurt, and 1/4c homemade granola for 3 points. I am sad to say that this was the last of the 12 cup batch! I guess I know what I’ll be doing on Saturday!! ;)
After a morning filled with meetings I headed home to let the cable guy in over my lunch. I called our cable & internet provider and asked for a better rate and saved Kyle & I $30/month!! Hooray!! And the bonus was that we were even upgraded so he had to install something new!!
Now I know I ate some baby carrots when I got back to my office. And I KNOW I took a picture…but my camera must have ate it! ;) Oh well…zero points anyway!!
After work I ready to hit the gym! I got in 35 minutes on the treadmill. Now the exciting part…within that 35 minutes I ran a 5K in 28:29 minutes!!! Which beats my goal of 29 minutes for February!! I was super pumped!!! It wasn’t easy though, my chest was tight, but I finished! I think this is the fastest I have ever ran a 5K!
After my sweat session I came home and whipped up beef enchiladas! I thought they turned out great, but Kyle wasn’t so sure of the beans! He says it’s not an enchilada if there are beans in it, it’s more of a burrito. I said who care’s what it’s called…it just tastes good! My serving was 7 points. I couldn’t get a picture on my plate…it just turned into a big blob of meat & cheese!! But oh so good!!
Beef Enchiladas (makes 12 Enchiladas or 6 servings. 2 Enchiladas is 5 points)
