Shopping Fail

Another day of shopping, but this time I’m empty handed in the gift department.  Argh.  I’m having a tough time this year!!

No trouble picking out something for myself though! Typical.  LOL.


Started the day with Christmas Blend and a few splooshes of light egg nog


And an eggwich…egg white, ff mozza cheese slice I found hiding in the fridge, tomato & ketchup on a WW bun…


While shopping I decided I didn’t want the Larabar I’d thrown in my purse, so grabbed a bagel with peanut butter instead…


After shopping I headed straight for the gym.  I packed my gym bag with me in the car so I wouldn’t talk myself out of going.  :)

  • Treadmill:  2 min warm-up, 22 min RUN!!!, 1 min cooldown = 25 mins, 3km, 225ish cals
  • 3 sets of 15 (with 5lb ball): squats, plie squats, one-legged squats (each leg)
  • 1 set of Cali’s bum exercises, 1 minute plank, lots of stretching

As soon as I walked in the door I put together a green smoothie.  Craving some quick veggie intake!


In the blender: 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 packet of Amazing Meal original, 2 heaping tsp flax meal, 2 cups steamed organic spinach, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze.

Basic but hit the spot!

For dinner, more veggies!!


Roasted brussel sprouts & beets…with lean Italian sausage


All roasted together in the oven…


While waiting for dinner to roast I cracked open a bag of Riceworks.  I love these things!!  Counted out a half serving and promptly popped the bag into the pantry.  :)


This evening involves a long, hot shower, The Christmas Blessing, tea, and my first butter tart of the season…


And a reasonably early bedtime.  *yawn*  Night all!
