Celebration Friday and Whole42 – Day 29

We are officially one month away from the wedding with much to do. I am getting excited to celebrate this special day with family and friends. I took this week to refocus on what is important to me – I let stupid work drama inhabit my brain last week. No more of that! This past …

Whole42 – Days 38 and 37

This stupid week has me screwed up on which day it is. I forgot to publish my post from Wednesday and didn’t post last night. I thought I would do today’s early since I am just not in the mood to do anything else. I just ate my yummy lunch and read a fantastic blog …

Whole42 – Day 39

My whole body is sore from the past few days of exercise. I guess I am waking up the muscles again! It feels good to be working out hard again. I had a little moment of “regret” the other day for backing off on my training a couple of months ago, but I am ok …

Whole42 – Day 40

It was a good solid day despite not getting my run it. It was pouring rain at lunch and I do not run on treadmills… it is a rule I have. I would have run if it was just sprinkling, but it was pretty much a down pour. Food: chicken, pumpkin spice latte zucchini and …

Odd goals for sure, but for the past month I have had some sort of attention deficit disorder. I started off the month with some goals and got side-tracked somehow… not sure what happened. …

The Big Cook

I always try to prepare a couple of meals on Sunday that we can eat during the week. It just makes things easier after a busy day at work. Today I did a little challenge to see how much I could get done in one hour. I got this idea from my new favorite cookbook …

Celebration Friday!

For the past few years I Friday has been my weigh-in day. Some Fridays that meant celebration. Other Fridays it meant despair. It is ridiculous really. Celebration Fridays were when I felt good about myself… I lost weight. I must be a success! I was worthy of a special treat. On Despair Fridays I must …

The past two days….

Boy how time flies when you blog. Two days have gone by and I haven’t told you what I have eaten. The shame. Monday: 1: eggs and sauerkraut 2: leftover filet mignon, bacon and coconut pancakes (a surprisingly delicious combo!) 3: pot roast and carrots Tuesday: 1: eggs and sauerkraut 2: leftover pot roast and …

The last four days

I have had way too much fun to possibly recap the last four days. It was a great weekend and I am pooped. I am not ready to go back to work tomorrow! Friday – Harley ride and out to eat with John Saturday – I started off the day with a nice run with …
