Before you know it, March will be upon us again and I'll be turning 33. Um yeah, that sort of freaks me out... Thanks for asking. HA! The big 3-3. UH OHHHH! Good thing three is my lucky number. How knows, maybe it will be my BEST YEAR EVER!
On to breakfast. I enjoyed another scrumptious bowl of what I've lovingly named paradise oats. Not AS good as yesterdays because I didn't have milk and it was microwaved instead of cooked on the stove. However, still delicious!
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water
- dash salt
- Splenda to taste
- dash nutmeg
- half of a sliced banana
For lunch I enjoyed another wrap with a super juicy apple on the side. The wrap I had for lunch yesterday was super delicious. Today's was a bit more bland. I forgot to pack Hummus this morning! Such a SAD tragedy!!! It was still tasty but Hummus would have made it perfect.
For a mini break today I ran to CVS with Ann so she could pick up a few things. I had no intentions of buying anything. So of COURSE, I bought something. I bought this!
I've been complaining about hair color boredom to Ann for a while now. And of course instead of WAITING for someone to color it professionally, WHICH I PROMISED MYSELF I WOULD DO NEXT TIME, I just purchased it myself! So typical.... I've colored my hair more times than I care to admit. I'm addicted! It's been about 5 months since the last time and I'm shocked I managed to wait this long. I told Ann that she would have to help me with it next Saturday after the gym. I've got too much hair to do it myself. I could do it, I just don't want to! HA! THANKS ANN!
My afternoon snack was the very delicious Pomegranate Chobani. Why I do declare, it was incredibly delicious!
Even Calendar Cat wanted some. BAD KITTIE!
I loved the seeds and all the fruit on the bottom.
YUM. This gets a 9.5 out of 10 rating. I would definitely buy it again IF I can find it!
After work it was off to the gym for the usual Monday Cardio Session. It went pretty well. Both the bike and the treadmill are getting a bit easier. Perhaps it's time to up the speeds or the levels? Just not sure yet. Maybe it's too soon? ONLY TIME WILL TELL! I still get out of breath on both but not like I used to. I used to wheeze and cough with my mouth hanging wide open like some sort of a freak. I am not an attractive person when I work out, that's for sure!! HA! It has gotten a LOT better though!
40 minutes - 3.2 speed, 2.11 miles
Crunches with 8lb ball
Crunches with 10lb ball
10 minutes - level 5 - Random uphill setting, 3.8 miles
We wrapped it up at about 6:30 and I took my happy butt home for some rest and relaxation.
I was greeted by a box from Naturally More. Awe yeah! I love peanut butter. I'll be digging into this lovely jar of joy in no time! Thanks Naturally More!!
I thought it would be a good night to have something spicy for dinner. I decided to make coconut curry chicken and vegetables with arborio rice.
I cooked 1 cup of rice with 2 cups water. While that was simmering away I threw the following into my wok.
- 1 can lite coconut milk
- 1 tbs curry
- 1 tsp cayenne
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- dash nutmeg
- dash salt
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken cut into bite size pieces
- 1/4 cup frozen peas
- 1 cup broccoli florets
- 1 small can bamboo shoots
- 1 can baby corn
And with that, I wish you all a lovely night. Enjoy what's left of it. :)
