What happened to my energy today? sleeping-with-book

It seemed to seep slowly out of me as the day progressed. System check:  Enough carbs & other important food stuff? yes.  Enough sleep? think so.  How about yesterdays water intake? well, maybe not.   Ok. Think I might have found the prob. I’m so bad at drinking enough water. I need lemon to just barely enjoy it. I’d rather have coffee.  When I got my “PUREGO” water bottle, I thought it would inspire me. Guess it wore out like an old pair of shoes. puregobottleBut I still drag it along with me everywhere I go.

Lunch wasn’t as rush – rush -rush today. I was too tired to rush. Had some left overs and a smaller salad… too tired to make a big one. eats-on-thursday-001




TGIF tomorrow and Sue isn’t at work. It’ll be a busy one but that will just put me in the right mood for a good glass of wine… did you see the site reference for sending old bottle corks…speaking  of wine?   http://www.yemmhart.com/news+/winecorkrecycling.htm   ….just in case.

Tonights dinner… Ted offered to go get a pizza from O’Scugnizzo’s. By far, the best pizza I have ever had. They make the best:  eats-on-thursday-002                                           

 I served up some brussels with the pizza and, in my book, it was the perfect Thurs. night meal:  eats-on-thursday-0031


Today, the Van’s Gift Catalog came in the mail. The baskets are expensive but every year I go blind trying to find “Puddy” the little company mascot they hide in one of the baskets.  I had to go through it 3 times, but I found PUDDY! 

Find Puddy

Ok. here’s a hint: red box, lower right…see the dot on the box? That’s Puddy!  Now I have to decide if I want to order $350.00 worth of baskets to get the free $25.00 gift for finding that silly little bear. Ummmm….probably not this year.

If you want to check out their site, because they do have nice baskets, go to: www.vansgifts.com.  If you want to read about Puddy…www.vansgifts.com/puddy.asp  

Have a super night, All!

It’s cold this morning, 23 degrees! Brrrrr.    I got up with a sore hammy. so I decided to do some E.T. It never loosened up and that means, take a break from running for a day or so.  Although my alarm was set for the usual time, I decided to shut it off to see if more sleep was needed as I worked out Sunday and actually completed all “body parts” for the week.  I ended up getting out of bed 20 minutes later and doing a total body routine.  It went something like this:  35 min. on the E.T. 10 minutes of rowing. 25 minutes using 12 lbs dumbbells on the ball which consisted of 24 different exercises for the whole body. 20 repetitions per exercise.  Shane and I braved the cold with a 35 minute relatively fast walk.

breakfast-steel-cut-001For breakfast, I decided on GF Steel Cut oats with 1/2 a banana that Ted left me, plus 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  I added 2 strawberries to the oats.  I had a pre workout Jay Robb shake and a post work out Jay Robb shake which included 2 strawberries.

Now on to work for a meeting with an Ad Rep. Have a great day!
