Good morning, sorry I didn’t have time to post yesterday, it was a traveling day for us and after that I had to get everything in order for ANOTHER BUSY WEEK! Well, yesterday morning I did not go for a run. I have a pesky sunburn on my shoulders and sweat+sunburn=pain! But, when I woke up my chest muscles were sore as if I had done a million push-ups. I think that was from holding on for dear life on the tube! We got up at 8am, after a fantastic 8 hours of sleep (my fantastic nights of sleep were left in FL, once I got home, sleeping was a challenge but we will get to that later). I made an egg white sandwich on whole wheat bread with a slice of American cheese and a banana for breakfast and I had about 1 and 1/2 small cups of coffee with vanilla half and half.
It is taking much less time to load pictures here in Boston than it was when I was in FL, Thank God, blogging in FL was painfully slow!!!!
After breakfast, Adam and I packed up. Here is my traveling outfit.
Aqua Capri’s (GAP), Tan Tank (Old Navy). It is really comfortable for traveling.
We packed up the car and drove 1 and 1/2 hours to the Orlando airport. We got there a few hours before our flight, so we stopped into Chili’s and had lunch. I have never eaten at Chili’s before, it was okay. We started off with a spinach and artichoke dip to share between the 5 of us. I think everyone ate some but Anthony. I don’t think he liked it.
I ordered a Sam Summer and a glass of water to drink (I had two Sam Summer’s throughout the meal). Last day of vacation Right?!
For my meal I ordered the grilled salmon. It came with a side of spanish rice and mixed broccoli and carrots. The menu didn’t indicate that the salmon would be covered in butter or else I would have requested it without. So, when it came out, I did my best to dab as much butter off with my napkin as possible. I ate every last veggie (I wish then has given me a larger serving), about 70% of the salmon and I am not sure how much rice, but I am guessing not a lot because afterward the waiter asked me if I didn’t like it. I liked it ok, it had a little bit of a citrus taste. Overall, the meal was okay, there was definitely a lot butter on the salmon that was totally unnecessary… but oh well.
After we ate we walked to the gate and had to say goodbye to Deb and the kids. I was really sad 😦 (yes, I cried a little). But, they are coming to Boston in less than a month so I am happy about that! But, I am really missing them today! Love you guys…see you soon!!!!!
Once through the gate Adam and I sat at a bar and enjoyed two ice cold bud lights each. I didn’t take a picture I totally forgot (BAD ALI!) but use your imagination…two frosty glasses of bub light….yum.
While on the plane we watched TV and drank 3 more bud lights each…soaking up the last few hours of vacation before we got back to our real lives.
I also sipped on water and had a cheery fruit leather (that I shared with Adam…he didn’t like it very much).
We had a good flight, actually both flights were good and went by fast. Once we got home I was go go go! My dad picked us up (Thanks, Dad!) and then we went right to Adam’s mom’s house to get Oscar! I missed him so much! Then it was right to the grocery store for me! Here is what I bought:
I got pretzel rods (Adam’s), cashews, fat free milk, cookies and dream (Adam) and Gotta Java (ME) fat free frozen yogurt, reduced fat whipped cottage cheese, Lemon and Spicy hummus, Tofu, reduced fat feta, turkey, soup and salmon.
Here is the produce (I always buy tons of produce):
I bought spinach, red bell peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, grapes, kiwi, apples and zucchini.
For dinner I was really craving pasta, so I cooked some whole wheat pasta with organic sauce and this veggie “meat”.
I used about 1/3 of the package (and there was left over sauce so expect to see this again maybe Thursday?)
Here is a pic of my pasta:
That is a side of steamed zucchini…we were running low on dishes so it is in a cup. I actually turned the dishwasher on right after I took this picture. I put some veggie topping on it too!
For dessert I had a little bit of coffee frozen yogurt and a small piece of dark chocolateYum yum. After desert I cut up veggies and fruit, made today’s lunch, unpacked, unloaded the dishwasher, got clothes ready for work today…I was a busy girl! I got into bed at around 10:30 and tried to sleep…NO DICE. Between the sunburn and the millions things I have to do running through my mind I could not sleep for the life of me…booooo! Needless to say lack of sleep+sunburn= no morning workout. Hopefully the sunburn will be better tomorrow, I haven’t ran since Saturday and my legs are itching to get moving!
This morning for breakfast I had a honey flavored chobani and a cup of kashi cereal.
I topped it with strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. Just my my body needed!
I also had an iced coffee while gabbing with Kara on the way to work (but it didn’t get it’s picture taken…it is the same one as usual).
Today I am wearing tan pants (target), a brown cami (H&M) and a floral sweater (Old Navy) with brown sandals from TJ MAXX
close up of my sweater.
Lunch today is a salad (I am in desperate need of some veggies). It has lettuce, tomato, red bell pepper, carrots, cucumbers, tuna and feta with a little balsamic dressing.
well, I have got a lot to do. My after work plans include catching up on some work at my part-time job and MAJOR STUDYING for my final tomorrow! See you at dinner!
