Wednesday was a standard day for sure – just worked and then went to a holiday luncheon at Goldfish and ate WAY too much (4 shrimp, hummus/pita, a ravioli, salmon salad, and dessert – uh)…. I practically rolled back to work. Then worked more. Then shock of all shocks had a stomach ache. So I headed home after work, got in PJs and did very, very little. I DID sit down with
Yesterday was a great day! I got lots of work done, got in a 4.25 mile walk (burned 202 calories), had my sister over to visit and give her her birthday present and had lots of yummy eats: turkey/avocado wrap for breakfast; beef enchilada casserole for lunch; greek feta chicken for dinner; and yummy snacks: crackers/cheese and a kashi cookie. Then came book club – woo! I had lots more snacks there and a bit of wine… but I also had a really great time! Good to see some of Stacy’s newest stuff (Christmas decorations, new paint, new bathroom art, etc.), good to visit with the girls and catch up, good to meet two new girls – Danielle and Gretchen!, and good to talk about the book. Which brings me to my review of Jill Smolinski’s The Next Thing on My List. I gave it a 4.5 out of 5. The book is about a girl who gives a ride to a girl she just met at a WW class… there’s a car accident and the passenger dies. The driver finds a list of 25 things this girl wanted to do before she turned 25. She decides to take them on as her own and it leads to the cutest, sweetest story. It is such a feel-good story and I really enjoyed it – I even cried! I don’t want to give too much away but DEFINITELY advise it for a quick, fun read. It would have gotten a 5 out of 5 if it had been a bit longer and if the ending had been even happier! Good stuff though – woo! Now I’m going to start Stephenie Meyer’s The Host – I hope I like it!! So I ended up closing out the day at 2,097 calories, 217 carbs, 59 fat grams and 112 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. So definitely higher than I wanted to be, but it was book club, right?! :)
I’m not sure what today will bring! Yes, I’m on a random vacation day again. I know I want to workout a lot (cardio and ST), I know I’m going out in the highlands. I know me and Shana are going to try and get together and shop, too. I think it’s going to be a good one!
Do you have a list of things to do before a certain age? If so, what are two of them?
I’m interested in developing a list but need inspiration. A few on this girl’s list were: Run a 5k, ride in a helicopter and try boogie boarding.
