I just have to share how excited I am that I have my old new car back. I got a new car about a year and a half before Aidan was born and I barely got to drive it before I got too big for it. It is a little two door sporty type car and I LOVE IT! I had to give it up for Jeremy’s larger car and had been driving it since. The other day when I went to Ulta, I drove it because Aidan had practice and I wasn’t sure if I would be back in time. I have driven it a few times in the past few years but something dawned on me that afternoon. I could start driving it again! Aidan is no longer in a bulky car seat so that wasn’t the main issue anymore. I proposed the idea to Jeremy and of course he was all for it! He hated driving it. I on the other hand, am so excited to have it back! It’s MUCH easier for me to drive and navigate because it is smaller. I have terrible depth perception and would purposely park super far away so I didn’t have to deal with trying to nudge my way into a parking spot. My water bottle that I take everywhere with me actually fits in the cup holder, not the case in the other car. It has a lot of other features that are just awesome and I remember why I picked that car out of all the other ones. It may not be a new car, but it sort of is to me!!!!
Happiness is; a free old new car
I finally slept well Thursday night, never mind that I woke up at 4:50am….ten minutes before my alarm went off. I count that as a win because at least it wasn’t 4:20, or 4:22, or 4:19 like it has been.
Breakfast was the usual and right before I left for the gym I had the other half of my banana.
My workout was GREAT! I planned on an hour of cardio, but wasn’t sure if I would do my usual half and half (half treadmill/half elliptical) or if I would do the entire hour on the elliptical. Turned out I did the entire hour on the treadmill. When does THAT ever happen? I found myself full of energy and feeling great. I ended up doing a workout that looked like this:
0-5 warm up at 4.3
20-25 walk 4.3
40-45 walk 4.3
50-55 walk at 4.3
55-60 cool down slowing every one minute
I think I ended up completing just under 5 miles. 4.8? Side note: It may have gone by so quickly and effortlessly because the lady next to me was keeping me highly entertained. I am not sure where she was in her head, but she was singing and dancing to Pretty Girl Rock while I was getting set up. Not sure what else she was listening to after that, but she was a pretty good dancer! Maybe it was her energy rubbing off on me.
When we left the gym, I had a few errands to run that would keep us out through lunch, so I was sure to pack some snacks.
Only the apple and the almonds were mine
We were out so long, I was dangerously close to becoming HANGRY
But thankfully I had an emergency snack!
This was not yummy at all, but it made me feel better!
When we got home I made the quickest and healthiest thing I could scrounge up.
2 handfuls of baby spinach, strawberries, blueberries, peanuts, baby carrots, reduced fat feta cheese, and a light balsamic vinaigrette.
Dannon Greek yogurt in blueberry.
As always, Friday night was Pizza Night for the boys so I made something that ended up being a combination between nachos and Frito Pie.
1 serving Baked Tostitos, 1/2 cup Hormel Vegetarian Chili, ~ 1/8 cup reduced fat shredded cheese. 100% delicious and very filling!
Then I ate countless chips w/ salsa.
Today we have a soccer game and pictures. I am going to get a Shred workout done this afternoon and then hopefully I can settle down on the couch and start Catching Fire! Have a LOVELY weekend friends!!!
