It’s Monday! :)

Hello people!  I hope that your day is going super!  I am currently setting at McDonald’s taking advantage of the time to get some blogging in.  I have class tonight right after work, so I won’t have time to do it once I get home.


I don’t know about you, but this was much-needed this morning.  For the last two nights I have slept so well.  There was no waking up off and on or any potty breaks in the night.  Which is not something that I regularly do.  I woke up this morning not really wanting to workout…..I even got into my workout clothes and sat on the bed desperately trying to talk myself out of doing it.  It didn’t work.  With class and all I will not have time to get one in tonight.  So, I got up off my behind and hopped to it!


The Firm Cardio Party (30 minutes)

I felt so much better once I was done!


Breakfast is a recycled photo seeing is how I had finished my meal and realized I hadn’t taken a picture of it.  What??!!

I had the English Muffin minus the Clementine.  I forgot those were in the refrigerator!!  I also tried something new in my coffee this morning.

Not much different from what I am currently using.  🙂


This was my view on my way to church yesterday:

It actually ended up being a really bad night of storms in Arkansas last night.  Yesterday morning was super cool, but by the afternoon it was near 70, which=storms.  On my way home from church last night, the lightening was SO bad!!  It was like this dance party in the sky!  Normally, storms do not scare me, but this one was freakin me out.


So, I am two days with no iced coffee and no mochas from McDonald’s.  If you knew me personally, you would know that this was a BIG deal.  When my mid-morning snack rolled around I was actually hungry for it. 🙂


I little later I will be having a turkey sandwich with some greens and a piece of 70% dark chocolate.


I better get back over to work….I hope you have a great day!  My next post will be a 20 questions type deal.  🙂  Hope you enjoy it.  I also hope that you have a great day!




A night out on the town!

Ok, so I didn’t get into bed until 1:15 or 1:30 this morning.  Whew!  I am way too old to be staying up late!!  With that said, I had such a good time with friends last night.  I warn you, this post will be mostly filled with pictures.  🙂

Hmm where did we leave off?  My boss was off work yesterday, so I was pretty much stuck at work for 10 hours.  It’s such a barrel of fun!  We were busy, so that did make the day go by fast.  I am pretty excited about this quarter.  We have goals that we have to meet and we started off the year pretty strong!  Gooo Team!

Anyway, on to yesterdays lunch.  I warn you, it was a little weird.  I am still in the process of cleaning out groceries.  Yay!!  A trip to Whole Foods!

Steamed green beans, an apple, chicken breast, the last of the black beans (maybe a spoon full), and salsa for the chicken.  It actually was pretty good!  A blog that I really like called The Arty Runnerchick, (hey Cait!) help me consider that I am not taking in enough of the right foods for the level of working out that I am doing.  I really wanted to address that on my lunches.  This meal, to me, will set the tone of dinner.

Even with this, my tummy began to growl around 4:30.  I wanted to reach for some candy, but I opted for this instead.

Round bread, with peanut butter and 70% dark chocolate bits.  Man it was good!

When my friends and I were finally on the road, we headed to Chili’s.  I think that is probably my favorite place to eat out.  Just a note thought, chips and salsa are not free at Chili’s.  Who knew that?  It has been a long time since I have gone out to eat.

We checked out the menu:

…and I went with a sandwich.  I am not sure, but I think it was pretty healthy.  Grilled chicken with lettuce and tomato, a slice of bacon (only ate half), on a wheat bun.  With all of the chips, salsa and Chili’s famous queso, I only managed to get half of the sandwich down.  Oh!  and this came with some steamed broccoli.  Which was SO good!

I tried to get a picture of one of my friends baby daughter, but she would not cooperate!

We also went to Barnes and Noble, one of my favorite places!  I  saw a few things that caught my eye.

I ended up making a couple of purchases:

The Screwtape Letters By C.S. Lewis

and…  The Cost of Discipleship By Dietrich Bonhoeffer

I have heard a lot about the Screwtape Letters and can’t wait to read it.

Today I am headed over to Old Navy to check out their workout clothes.  They’re having a big sale!! 🙂  Then I will go pick up my niece and nephew and we are gonna hang out with the Smurfs.  Probably go by McDonald’s and get them a treat…..shhhh don’t tell their parents.  😉  What’s healthy at McDonald’s again??

Here’s the thing, even though I have a busy day, I am still going to manage to get in a workout.  It’s day 10 of BodyRock baby!

I hope that you are having a great day!  Check ya later!
