Sounds like you guys are a bunch of lucky ladies with your giveaway wins!! I can't wait for my vitatops to come in - nom nom nom. Thanks for your sweet comments - i'm very excited about the Mexican-flavored chicken concoctions! Just had the enchilada bake for dinner a minute ago - fabulous!
So Today started out kinda blah with bad traffic, bad weather and lots of work. Goo! I took lunch for 2 miles + this leg workout (burned 140).
After work, it was time for more cardio + abs!! I wanted to do C25K but my legs were SUPER sore.... I figured i'd see what I could do. I walked for 5 minutes, ran for 13 then kept walking to get to 2.5 miles. Then I grabbed a ball and did abs! All together it was about 40 minutes to burn 187 calories. Hopefully my legs will be ready for another 28-minute run on Thursday - hope I can do it!!
During the walk, I finished Mary Alice Monroe’s The Book Club, just in time for Friday’s meeting! Here’s my review: The book was basically about five middle-aged women all at a crossroads in their lives: one dealing with infertility, one her husband’s death, another with adultery, one with money/job problems and the other with loneliness. It’s about how they each deal with the challenges of life as they grow older, and how they ultimately rely on each other in the end. It’s definitely a feel good book, but does make you think about how you spend your time, who you spend it with and what life’s all about. For what it was, a character study of 5 women and life’s changes, I give it a 4 out of 5. For me, I would have wanted a bit more dialogue, a few more surprises and maybe a little more excitement. You know how you keep waiting for something to happen? For me, this book did have lots of things happen, but not enough to keep me fully engaged.
After my workout I ran home, chilled with Austin, had dinner and rested up - GREAT chill night - woo. Eats for today were brunch pizza squares for breakfast with a fat-free hot cocoa, slowcooker spaghetti for lunch with 3 hershey kisses, laughing cow wedge with car crackers and enchilada casserole for dinner with some corn chips followed by publix iced cookies for dessert - not too bad! I ended up at 1,779 calories, 210 carbs, 60 fat grams and 104 protein grams. Here's what I ate. (total burn: 327)
