Here I am!

So I wonder if my late evening posts are going to disappear in lieu of couch time with FH.  I guess we shall see.  Last night’s did! 

Don’t worry, you didn’t miss much.  :)

Dinner was just leftover turkey chili from the freezer…

002

With sweet potato cheetahs…although these cheetahs seem to have misplaced their spots

004

And the last of the Club Soda Cupcakes

001

And some unplanned chocolate…FH brought home malt balls to share.  Who am I to turn down malt balls?

007

We watched UP!  Super cute.  What a beautiful story!!  And Pixar’s animation never ceases to amaze me…it gets better and better with every movie.  Two thumbs up.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------This morning was a change of my usual pace.  FH asked for a ride today so I finally got up extra early and got my workout in!!  Nothing like having my run out of the way before starting work!  (If only my morning brain would clue in to this every day!)

I graduated up another interval on treadmill running this morning.  Actually I think I skipped 9 minutes and went straight to 10 minutes.  :)  Yaaieeeeeee!!

  • 2 minute walking warm up
  • 10 minute run, 2 minute walk, 10 minute run, 1 minute walk
  • 5 minutes incline speed walking
  • 30 minutes, 2.1 miles (3.38 km), 200ish calories
  • 2 x 1 minute plank, 30 crunches, 30 reverse crunches

So nice to come home after that for coffeeeeeee…

008

Oats…

012

Today’s oats made with the last of the Apple-Pomegranate Crisp

And a hot shower.

Later today I really want to try to get downtown for that damn X-ray.  My shoulder/neck has been awesome all weekend (*knock wood*)I can even roll over in my sleep!  But today the pain is back a bit…booooooo.  We shall see how work plays into my schedule.  At least if I want to work late, my workout is already done!

Up! was so cute. The beginning made me sad though...boo!

We are living in some weird parallel universe :) Paige and I watched UP last night too. We both loved it. I'm such a big baby, I *may* have even shed a few tears. Good grief.

And, I went for a run this morning! :)

Way to go on the awesome workout! Have a great day!!

You have a morning brain? I don't. Have a brain in the morning, I mean.

Hey, I burned 100 more calories in the same amount of time as you by dancing in my living room to totally tubular 80's tunes this morning! (insert giggling emoticon here). Now my neck hurts, though. Um, I was really into it...

Yay for you for getting up early and getting the exercise all over with!
