70 Degrees and Loving It!

April 17, 2009 at 3:58 pm 12 comments

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.

    Oh wow, what an adventerous walk you guys went on. Sorry to hear you forgot your smoothie. It’s so irritating when you forget something and don’t realize it before it’s too late to turn around and go back and get it. Those prunes are super cute all individually packaged like that by the way! 🙂

    fabulous calorie burning! wow!

    LOVEEE your smoothie 🙂

    I didn’t know whether to laugh or be shocked at the chain gang story! Let’s just say I am glad I wasn’t there! 😛

    so glad to hear you so happy! enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    I think sometimes it’s necessary to lick your plate, lol : ) because sometimes it’s just THAT tasty!
