Naps and pre-cooked items

on April 29, 2012

After a lovely nap, I got up this afternoon and kinda felt yucky.   Don’t ya hate that?  That’s why I try not to take naps….If I could just get a quick cat nap, I am good!   It’s the long ones that jack me up.  I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep last night, mainly because I borrowed the first two seasons of Desperate House Wives from a friend of mine, and stayed up late watching the first two disks.  🙂  I know, I am a gluten for punishment.


Workouts for the week:



2 mile run/4 Tabata workouts


Jessica Smith’s Cardio Blast


Jessica Smith’s Better Body Legs/Arms


2 mile run/4 Tabata workouts




Amy Dixon’s Tabata workout





Some of the things that I worked on this afternoon, post nap, was pre-cooking some of the things that I would eat this coming week.


  • Brown rice/Quinoa mix
  • Roasted Sweet potatoes
  • Cod
  • Roasted brussels sprouts


I will also be making some tuna salad.  I don’t know if I told you, but the last time I made the tuna salad, I used tuna with Sunflower oil.  (It was all I had).  It turned out ok!


I am taking a vacation day tomorrow and I have a few things on my to-do list:

  1. Run (I haven’t been on a run in a long time, so this should be interesting)
  2. clean closet (this is still on my list)
  3. Clean out the refrigerator
  4. pre-cook some meals
  5. Make tuna salad
  6. Mow the yard (yes, it’s time again)

I am actually pretty excited about number 1.  🙂


I also need a few items at the grocery store:

  1. Washing detergent
  2. pecans
  3. almonds
  4. eggs
  5. bananas
  6. cat treats
  7. light bulbs


Welp!  I am off to finish cooking up some food!  Have a great night!


Question:  What are your workouts for the week??  What is your favorite form of cardio to do? Aaaaand, if you are a runner, how many days of the week do you run?

    I’m the same with naps – it makes it hard if I don’t get enough sleep over night! I like the sound of your meals / meal components, especially the roasted sweet potatoes 🙂 I also like the sound of your vacation day – even boring tasks can seem better if you’re usually at work! I usually exercise pretty much daily, but one day will be very light, and my running is intermittent. Mostly it’s 1 – 2 days, unless I’m trying to train for a race, but even then it’s not guaranteed!
