So I apologize in advance. Today was CRAZY and I didn’t have time to take pictures of my dresses, take pictures of my marathon cooking or take pictures in general! Eek! I also didn’t have time to read blogs – grrrr. Where did the day go? Oh yes, it was s.l.a.m.m.e.d. Before backing up, thanks for your comments on my last post - cracked me UP - loved the shoe comments! I want to go try them on for sure - I think they could go either way and it definitely depends on what you pair them with!! I'm hoping to make it over there Sunday when I get back in town!!
So Wednesday I ended up high on calories, probably because we ordered a pizza even though we had meals in the fridge – SHAME! Haha I ended up at 1,914 calories, 238 carbs, 65 fat grams and 115 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. Whilst eating pizza we watched Avatar.
Yes, I had never seen it – crazy – it just never worked out. But we watched, stayed up a bit too late to do so and just LOVED it. What a great story. Wow. It had a lot in it for me – some District 9 and a little bit of Star Wars - but overall, it to me really dealt with social issues, but it also put Americans, or at least American military contractors, in a negative light. I tried to focus more on the story, the native people and their beliefs, the struggle between wanting to stand up for what you believe in but not wanting to get too far gone I guess… I don’t know – I thought the main character did an amazing job making his struggle feel real in a setting that felt so far from real!
Today was a rough day! I was SO busy with work, slammed really. I hate when it rains it pours but it’s a saying for a reason! I worked, worked through lunch, and a little after 5 had to take a break so I headed to the gym. I did the following:
- Walked 3 minutes at 4.0 mph
- Ran 15 minutes at 6.3 mph
- Ran 1 minute at 7.5 mph
- Ran 1 minute at 6.3 mph
This was exactly 20 minutes and exactly 2 miles! Then I walked for another 3.5 miles (53 minutes). Great workout! I'm definitely not where I had gotten with C25K, but i'm making it my own and trying to improve as best I can! I really hope to get back to my 28 minutes again - and beyond - I think I can do it! During my walk I got a lot read in the Star Spangled Murder – such a cute book. :)
I headed home and got to cooking. Me & Austin made 4 servings of skillet lasagna, 4 servings of green salsa chimichangas, 4 servings of hummus chicken salad, 4 servings of Garlic tomato chicken curry and rice and 4 servings of Chicken Tetrazzini. Cooking event indeed! Then we had a couple of glasses of wine, I got packed up for the reunion and was out! I ended up at 1,755 calories, 213 carbs, 40 fat gram and 95 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.
Q: Have you seen Avatar? If so, what did you think?
Q: I’m off to my 10-year high school reunion tomorrow. Did you go to yours? If not, why not? If you haven’t had one yet, do you plan to go?
