Hello! I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! Thanks for all your comments and e-mails last night after my last post. I feel like it is an issue I can go back and forth about for hours. In the end, I did end up taking the rest day and I think I really needed it 🙂
I left work at 4:45 to head home and rest. I got caught without an umbrella in a huge downpour on my way to the bus. I had a trench coat on so that saved my arms, but my head was soaked. When I arrived home my head was soaked and my mascara was everywhere. I think I may have frightened a few people on the bus. So I was thrilled to have a nice pumpkin coffee with skim milk waiting for me when I got home wet and cold. 🙂
I spent the next few hours curled up with my husband and the pup catching up on House and The Event. Is anyone else watching The Event? This show is sooo good, it is such a mind game! I am trying to figure it out every time we are watching it. If you like shows that make you think and really like figuring things out I suggest you watch it! So good 🙂
Dinner was simple and easy. I had no energy to cook anything fancy so I heated up the “eggplant fries” from my dinner disaster last week in the oven and made a pressed turkey sandwich. The sandwich was on a whole wheat tortilla with red pepper spread from Trader Joe’s, spinach, feta and turkey. I just pressed it for a few minutes until the feta was melted and the spinach as wilted.
After dinner, I watched the Britney episode of Glee 🙂 I secretly love Brit!!! I thought it was good. Ah, I love me some Glee. John Stamos is on Glee now, rumor has it he is on for the whole season 🙂 Does anyone else think John Stamos has gotten much better looking with age?
I do! He looks so much better, and I think it is more than the fact that he got rid of the mullet.
While watching Glee, Adam and I split a bowl the caramel and praline frozen yogurt.
Ugh! This photo is awful!!!! Luckily I got news that my NEW CAMERA was shipped yesterday. I can’t wait for it to arrive!!!!!
After Glee, I did some laundry and some cleaning. I was glad I took the rest day. I got a lot done around the house and woke up feeling refreshed and ready to go.
I got up at 5:45 am and got ready for a run with my friend Steph. When I got outside I was surprised at how humid the weather was! We ran 3.84 miles in 39:50. The first two miles felt great. My energy level was up and I was so happy to be running. The second half was harder, I got a little nauseous and felt wiped out. Steph was feeling the same way. We were both sick the week before last and still not feeling 100%. I think that is part of the problem. Overall, the run was fine and I downed a whole bottle of water and felt immediately better.
- Mile 1- 9:49
- Mile 2- 10:21
- Mile 3- 10:40
- .84 Miles- 8:58
Right after the run, I made a nonfat cappuccino and walked Oscar.
Breakfast was a little something I prepared last night. I put about 1/2 a cup of grape nuts in the bottom of a bowl, added one container of fat free vanilla Greek yogurt and about 1 cup of frozen blueberries. I put foil over it and let it sit overnight. This morning I mixed it all up. The blueberries has thawed and the grape nuts were soft. This breakfast reminds me of a cold and creamy blueberry cobbler. 🙂
I ate my breakfast while watching a segment on the Today Show about the cheapest family in America. To see the segment, click here. This family has five children and spends $197 a month of groceries. I was shocked. However, they do a lot of prep work beforehand and once they get the food home as well. Matt Lauer brought up a good point about the amount of time they spent on this and that “time is money”. What are you thoughts on that?
For me, I am always looking for ways to save money and eat well. Sometimes it is hard. I do take the long way sometimes by not buying pre-cut fruits and veggies I have saved a lot of money and it takes no time cutting them all up myself. What are some of your ways of saving at the grocery store?
Blue pencil skirt (Express), White Cami (H&M), Black Cardigan (Jacob).
Black suede Michael Kors pumps. These shoes are proof that quality it worth the price, I have had them for 4 years and wear them SO OFTEN!
Well, I have got to get going. I hope you all have a great day!
