70 Degrees and Loving It!

I am 10,000X happier then I’ve been in so long!  I can’t tell you just how much I love the warm weather better!

I’m excited to get back out there and enjoy the day so quick 2 day recap!

Yesterday for breakfast I made the most beautiful smoothie, it was so purple!

This smoothie contained:

  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • blueberries
  • peaches
  • a banana
  • skim milk

I took 2 or 3 sips then put it in a to-go cup for work.  I got ready for work and left.  And forgot the damn smoothie!  So remember what this smoothie looks like.

So when I got to work I snacked on 3 prunes, while pouting about my forgotten smoothie.

Lunch time couldn’t come fast enough, I was holding off until a reasonable hour for lunch and when I decided to dig in, it was gone in 2 minutes flat.

Inside this WW wrap is pb and raspberry preserves.  Yum yum yum.

Around 3 my stomach started growling so I had 4 sweet peppers:

And a string cheese:

Yum yum yum.

Andrew had the week off for spring break from school and he made me the best dinner again!  What a sweet guy.  Crockpot Chicken Parm!  So excited to eat that again!  But first I forced us to go for a walk along the trail, I burned about 250 calories because I was in a hurry to get back and eat some chicken parm.

He used chicken tenders so I had 3 and a serving of ww penne.

I might have licked the plate.

After dinner we went to pick up my little sister for our sleep over.  She came over and we passed out around midnight.

I woke up at 6 this morning and went for a little walk/jog around the neighborhood by myself.  I burned 217 calories.

Then came home and drank my smoothie (that Andrew so kindly put in the fridge for me yesterday after I forgot it.)  It wasn’t nearly as pretty today but still tasted awesome.

After the 2 lazy bones in the house woke up we hung around the house and watched tv.  My mom called and asked us if we’d like to go out to breakfast, I actually was hungry again so we went to our favorite breakfast plate in the junction.  I’m predictable and had a scramble with potato, pepper, onion and egg, with dry ww toast on the side.

I also stole some of my sister’s home fries because she doesn’t like them.  If it looks like a huge portion it is definitely decent but I love that they use smaller plates there then a standard restaurant, I hate when they have those huuuuge plates and fill them up with food.  These are just the right size.

After breakfast Andrew and I went for a walk on the trail together.  We walked for over an hour and I burned 466 calories.  Which puts me at 683 for the day, not bad for just walking and jogging.

When we got to almost the end of the trail I saw a bunch of people up ahead with orange jumpsuits on.  CHAIN GANG!  The back of their jumpsuits said NJDOC (NJ department of corrections)  there was a cop with them but there were at least 20 of them.  Nothing too weird right?  There was a cop so we should have felt safe.  But about 1/2 of the prisoners had freaking CHAINSAWS!  For real?  One Cop with a gun and 10 prisoners waving Chain Saws around?  I whispered to Andrew “turn around real slowly, and let’s get the hell out of here”.  Only a little while later when we passed 2 more cops walking along the front of the trail,  did we realize Andrew had an orange sweat shirt on I was convinced Andrew was going to get shot at because the cops would think he was a member of the Chain Gang.  I walked a good 10 paces behind him just in case.  I also thought the cops at the front of the trail were there because a prisoner had escaped and we were going to be part of a hostage situation.  I have a very active imagination obviously.  I also told Andrew that it was the “closest I’ve ever been to being murdered.” He told me that I was no where near being murdered but prisoners with Chain Saws is never a good combination.
