Well, today is the big day! Braces!! I have to be up there at 9:30 this morning so I am up early to start my day! I can’t tell you how long I have waited for this day!
The past two days I have been going through some boxes of things and well, basically throwing away things that I don’t need. It really feels good to get rid of some things that I don’t need. My parents and I are going to have a yard sale this Spring so we are getting ready for that as well. I can’t wait for the yard sale, but lets be honest……they’re a lot of work!
Very random, but really good….. Two egg omelet with spinach, steamed broccoli, and one Minneola (tangelo)
Nutrition Facts on Minneola’s:
- you get the Minneola’s by combining the Duncan grapefruits and the Dancy Mandarin Oranges
- only 70 calories
- High in vitamin C. 100% of your daily recommended value
- 13 carbs: including 9 sugars, 2 dietary fibers, and 1 protein
And they are super juicy!!
I wanted to try something a bit different for dinner… I really love throwing things together and putting it in a bowl! I took 1/2 of a sweet potato and roasted it, made some brown rice and chicken and then I also added some spinach… delicious!
1/2 Sweet potato
2 ounces of chicken
1/2 (maybe a bit less) brown rice
One mile run! This year I really wanted to concentrate on living healthy all of the time, not just necessarily goals per say. I mean I want to set goals in my life, but when it comes to healthy living, sometimes I feel restricted. I also feel really guilty when I don’t reach them. So, this year it is all about living healthy every day. With that said, one of the things that I have been working on is having an 8 minute mile. I have come close, 8:15, but it was on a speed drill. Which is nothing to cough at, but I want to be able to run one mile at a consistent pace and reach that 8 minute mile. Last night I ran one mile at 8:15……no speed drill!!

What are your plans for today?? There is a Fresh Market right next to where I will be at today and I need to stop there and pick up some Apple Cider Vinegar… but I am thinking that I will want to get home after having my mouth open for a couple of hours. In fact, they lady I spoke to last week said to go ahead and take some Tylenol before I came.
I also have to go by the post office to mail my sweetie a package. (He’s in Washington State) I know, it’s far, but one day I will tell you how we met!
That’s it……braces, Fresh Market, post office and then probably a nap.
Have a great day!!
