Day 189 & 190: Countdown to Friday

I know we’re supposed to live each day to the fullest and blah blah blah – but sometimes I just live each day in anticipation for a better day (read: Friday). I just have been unable to focus. Spring Fever? Fun weekend coming up? Still hazy from last weekend? House excitement? All 4 put together making me a ginormous waste of space? Likely. Anywho, Wednesday was pretty uneventful. I was able to get in 3.5 miles at lunch with Stacy, 2 miles + abs after work, read lots of Lethally Blond, find some new recipes to try (so exciting!) and gather all of my gift cards (I randomly have a lot and started worrying expirations were coming up – my worries were not without merit – I HAVE to shop this month. Hehe Austin will love that I sincerely have to shop – I will LOSE MONEY if I don’t spend money. Haha As far as eats, Wednesday was a hungry day! I had a potato/egg/sausage burrito for breakfast, sweet & sour for lunch and tin foil chicken for dinner – YUM! However, I had LOTS of snacks – RF Cheez its, chips ahoy thin crisps, a dove chocolate promise and a cookie (work). I ended up at 1,700 calories, 268 carbs and 30 fat grams – WAY too high on the carbs – wowza – and just too many snacks, really, even with the 5.5 miles adjusted in (83 minutes so 280 calories). Here’s what I ate. By the way – I haven’t weighed more than 115 this month… VERY exciting. I think my higher calories/walking/etc. is working!

Thursday was more of the same, except I worked at home so that was nice. I walked 4 miles during lunch, and after work I walked another 2 miles and did chest, bicep and tricep exercises. Then I cleaned and did laundry in preparation for my friends coming – YAY! While cleaning and doing ST I watched one of my alltime favorite movies from my childhood: Troop Beverly Hills. OMG I still remembered 87.5% of the dialogue. Amazing. Tell me you’ve seen it and loved it! Oh, and because I’m a freak for that movie, I looked it up on imbd and found out one of the girls from the troop, Chica Barnfell, is famous now!!
She (real name: Carla Gugino) has been in tons of movies (including the mom on Spy Kids hehe) and played E’s agent after Ari on Entourage!! Love it! (oh and Kellie Martin is in it too!) For eats, I had bacon/egg/cheese muffin and yogurt, then ½ white bean chicken chili + turkey/swiss sandwich (grilled on Foreman), then pepperoni pita pizzas for dinner! For snacks I had a WW giant fudge bar, RF Triscuits/turkey pepperonis and kettle chips – yum! Then me and Austin cooked a bunch of stuff because he’s off to housesit for my sister while she and her husband are in Mexico for Radiohead! I’m sending him off with food for the weekend and his Xbox – he’ll be FINE! Hehe And then we gave Reuben a bath – he needs to look his best for the ladies! I would post my final #’s for today, but it’s only 9 p.m. – there’s a good chance I’m just going to read and hang out with the family, but I may eat again! Hehe So for now, happy Thursday! I’ll be visiting your blogs soon, and I plan to post tomorrow before the girls get in town!!

Jenny Lewis, the girl who plays Shelly Long's daughter has a pretty good music career going - as a solo artist and a member of the band Rilo Kiley, who I saw in concert last year. Also, I kind of look like her. Google it!

Nerd Girl: Oh I know! It's on Encore right now (no commercials - yesss). Thanks!

Kelly: I know it! It's right up there with The Cutting Edge for me. Sigh. haha I wasn't kidding about the dialogue... it was freaky knowing what these total 80's characters from my childhood were going to say before they said it!

Eatfabinnyc: Definitely "everybody's working for the weekend" hehe haha It's been warm here so I can't complain there BUT it is supposed to rain all weekend... which kinda sucks... but I think we'll have fun regardless (definitely!)
