Happy Friday!! Sorry I’ve been MIA this week, friends! It’s been a tough work week and it’s spilled over to my personal life in a not-so-good way. Blah. I try to keep ‘em separated but sometimes I take my work frustrations home making me quite the Grumpy Gus. And to top it off it has rained here in
Tuesday was pretty blah – not gonna lie! I worked, walked 4 miles during lunch, worked, did chest/triceps/shoulders after work, then walked ½ mile, ran 1 ¼ mile and walked ¼ mile – so 6 miles + ST. Not bad! My lunch workout burned 280 calories, and my after work workout burned 356 – so 636 calorie burn. Woo! I raced home and had leftover manicotti while watching Entourage (SO good – first good one in a while – go Lloyd!) Then we made breakfasts and lunches for the next day and I got in bed and watched Gossip Girl (again) and ate my weight in Trader Joe’s crispy cookies. Eek! I ended up at 1,852 calories, 222 carbs, 71 fat grams and 91 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. Um – fat was out of control – what? So odd. Anywho – too many cookies, but I feel good about carbs – they’re never that low!
Wednesday was another tough one. The office was quiet so I got A LOT done which is great! During lunch I walked 4 miles. Had some meetings, got in a bad mood, went straight home in a bad mood and stayed grump all evening so I kept to myself. Sigh. Do you ever have days like that? Where it’s like “I’m in a crap mood so for you own good please just let me wallow and watch my programs.” Hehe I ended the day with a swig of Nyquil (to help me get my z’s) at 1,841 calories, 211 carbs, 51 fat grams and 125 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. Holy protein – that’s a lot for me. I will say I tried a new recipe and it failed. Sad.
Thursday was a little better in that I didn’t have to be at work until 8:30 a.m. for a meeting that lasted until 11:30. Not bad. As soon as the meeting went out I went to the gym and walked 1/2 mile, ran 1 ¼ miles and then walked ¼ mile – 2 miles, then did legs and abs.
I was a sweaty mess, but good thing I was able to go STRAIGHT home to work from home – woo! I ended up working until 6 p.m. but I got so much done and felt great about it. Then me and Austin got ready for our weekend visit to AUBURN – WAR DAMN EAGLE, and then we had some wine and chilled out (I stayed up too late – oopsie). I ended up at 1,773 calories, 171 carbs, 55 fat grams and 94 protein grams. Here’s what I ate and drank. Not bad, especially considering that I drank wine. Oh – and I made a new recipe from Monica’s Food Network Magazine, Chicken and Summer Vegetable Tostados.
Fabulous! It would normally be a little too high calorie for me, but I made it “their way” first and found that it was too much food! So again, going to tweak the recipe! But here’s a photog. And here’s my review of the notebook...
I give it a 4.5/5. I personally loved that I had seen the movie because as you can imagine, when you’re listening + driving in
K- going to read blogs tonight in AUBURN - yay. Can you tell i'm ready to get back and have a reunion with some of my besties??! Although, I must say it won't be the same this season without Jimmy & Mary - one of our FAVORITE couples from Birmingham, Ala., who always have a SUPER fun tailgate had a baby this week, little Emma (they're the ones we threw the shower for!). Thankfully we still have Teresa & Forrest in town with no babies yet! :) Talk to you all soon - can't wait to catch up!
