10 Minutes

Well someone around here must have been tired…ME!  I slept for 10 hours last night.  I didn’t turn out the light until around 2am, but slept in until noon!  Wow.  Now if only poor FH could do the same thing…he’s still struggling to get a whole night’s sleep.

I had intended to hit the gym as soon as I got up…and almost nixed the idea because of my late rising…but I didn't!  Yay!

Made a green smoothie to start the day out on the right foot.  I came up kinda short in the veggie department yesterday and we have a party to attend tonight so a little extra green seemed like a good idea.

In the KA today:  1/2 banana, 1/2 packet Amazing Grass Chocolate Amazing Meal, flax meal, 3 handfuls baby spinach, 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze.

I love how fast the Kitchen Aid blends things up.  No little bits of spinach getting stuck in my straw either!  I was telling FH last night how much I love the blender.  He still thinks I’m nuts but is glad I’m happy with my giftie.  LOL.

I let the smoothie settle for about 20 minutes then dragged my butt off to the gym.  Ate the rest of the banana on the way out the door…

At the gym:

  • 10 minute warm-up on rowing machine
  • 10 minutes x 2 running on treadmill
  • 10 minutes incline training on elliptical
  • 10 minutes core work (crunches, reverse crunches, side-to-sides)
  • Mucho stretching

On my way home I stopped at StarbucksHave you noticed I haven’t had Starbucks in over a week?  I know, the world must be revolving backwards or something.  :)

Double tall vanilla non-fat latte.  No more Christmas cups.  Sad.

I chewed on half of a Lemon Larabar in the car.  Traffic was insane.  Our neighborhood is on the opposite side of a shopping district from where my gym is…I had planned to stop at Chapters but seeing the traffic I opted to just get on the highway and go around.

Once home I heated up a cup of homemade Corn Chowder and made some quick cheese toast for lunch.

Like I said, tonight we are off to a party!  It’s our friend Bonnie’s 40th bday and her hubby has rented out a whole pub for the night.  Crazy right!?  If I know them, it will be a grand time!!  Live band and everything.  Yay!!
