My Story, 6 miles, Night of TV, More Pasta

Hi Friends! Before I back to Tuesday I wanted to let you know that I’ve updated my top sidebar to add a ‘My Story’ tab. I hope it answers some questions, and it was fun for me to put together (some milestones since starting the blog and a few before then like when me and Austin met, when we got baby Reuben, etc.). Here’s the link.


So backing up! Tuesday was a pretty good day! I worked, walked 3 miles during lunch and did abs (burned 175 calories), then worked more. After work it was time to try C25K again… I really wanted to get back to the 25-minute run. (last week could only do 18). I walked for 5 minutes…. Then ran. But could only do 20 minutes straight. Not bad! I kept it going to get to 3 miles in 33.26 minutes burning 190 calories. After work I headed home, showered and then me and Austin went over to Katie and Chris’s for a few drinkies. Great night! I ended up at 2,167 calories, 66 fat grams, 220 carbs and 99 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. I almost forgot – for lunch I had a new little recipe, Italian Pasta Bake, but it was kinda boring so I won’t bother with the recipe. It wasn’t BAD, it just wasn’t super different or special. Basically brown meat, mix spaghetti sauce with an Italian seasoning packing and cooked noodles – put in dish, top with mozzarella and bake – easy peasy!


Yesterday my allergies were out of control. I felt like death!! But I powered through and worked. I did not get to take lunch, work out, etc. – just stayed busy and went to meetings until I could go home and go to bed! Austin brought me dinner in bed – I just hate feeling like that but BLAH not good! I was pretty much a waste of space – just watched my shows (Modern Family – hilarious; Cougar Town – cute; ANTM – I’m over the last few models; Melrose Place – pretty good; 90210 – meh…I’m over Annie; Lost – boo, I didn’t learn anything new). Yes, night of TV for sure! I ended up at 1,784 calories, 54 fat grams, 207 carbs and 111 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

Did anyone watch Brothers & Sisters this week? Loved the "movie" (aka 2-hour episode - so cute to see them in high school!)

Did I miss anything in the milestones? Any questions your have for me? I felt like I covered lots, especially once the blog got started!

OMG I cried my eyes out watching Brothers & Sisters. I recorded it and forgot to watch until a coworker told me how good it was. I love that show!

I love, love, love you and Austin's story. I'm such a sucker for happy endings!! Sorry to hear about your allergies...I've heard eating a teaspoon of local, seasonal honey daily can really help a lot!! Hope you've had a great day love :)
