Go, Go, Go

I felt like since the moment I woke up this morning I have been rushing around to pack as much stuff into this one day. 

Last night after blogging I tried to fall asleep.  I’m usually lucky and can fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow, it’s kind of a joke with Andrew that I can complete a sentence, roll over, and be asleep.  Well because of my large dose of caffeine so late in the day I didn’t get to sleep until after midnight, and for someone who never has trouble falling asleep it was awful.  Then I woke up at 1:20 thinking it was about 7am I was so wide awake.  I finally fell back to sleep by 2:30 and then woke up for good at 5:45AM.  Why can’t I wake up so easily during the week?

The sun was shining from the moment I got up so after watching Andrew head off to work I decided to enjoy my breakfast out on the deck.  I made a yogurt mess, in a very special “mug”, from my Aunt Suzy!

This is bigger then almost any bowl I have, can you imagine how long I would have been awake if I drank my coffee out of here last night?

In the bowl was Vanilla Chobani, a banana, frozen peach slices, grapes, and pb puffins.  I didn’t know exactly what I wanted so I just had a little of each.

And all mixed up:

After breakfast I decided to let it digest while watching America’s Next Top Model, then headed out to run some errands.

After my errands were finished I went to the gym I spent a little more then an hour there with 35 minutes on the treadmill, and the rest doing biceps, triceps, and deltoids.  I burned 393 calories 45% of which were fat.

Once I came home I refueled with a smoothie.

This smoothie contained:

  • spinach
  • 1 scoop soy protein powder
  • blueberries
  • skim milk
  • and more frozen peaches

To be honest this shake sucked I drank about 3/4’s of it and then had my first Luna Bar.

It was like crushed oreos on peppermint bark, I would eat this every day if given the opportunity.

After this I went out with my mom to do a few more errands.  Fridays have definitely become my “get everything boring out of the way” day.

Once again after returning home I headed back out for a walk on the trail with a friend.  We walked for over an hour and I burned 518 calories, 35% of which were fat. 

After the walk and I returned to the apartment and Andrew got home from work just a few minutes later.  At this point I had burned a total of 911 calories for the day and I was so hungry.  Andrew wanted subs and I thought that sounded like a great idea we went to a local sub shop called Jersey Mikes, they had nothing for me to eat there, no chicken breast and I don’t like turkey, there veggie selection was awful tomatoes, lettuce, and onions, and all they had for cheese were ones I’m not a fan of.  I’m so picky.  Next door was a pizza place so I grabbed 2 plain slices and we headed over to my parents house so I could pick up my dad’s train pass.

Plus another one a little smaller.  And a romaine salad.

Now I’m back home and getting ready to go to bed, I can’t explain how tired I am in words right now.  I need to be well rested because I have a very exciting lunch date planned in the city with 2 fabulous bloggers!  Vani of Fit For Free and Sarah of Tales of Expansion!  I can’t wait to get to spend the day with them tomorrow!


Blogger BBQ Update

It seems like a quite a few of you are interested in doing this!  Which of course made me super happy.  If any of you know of any bloggers you think might be interested spread the word.

One thing I thought about last night was that the next month and a half is going to be a little crazy with vacation, a wedding shower, a communion, plus some other personal things.   So I’m shooting for the end of June for the BBQ how does this work for you guys?

Because of my mistake with the email address in yesterdays post I have made a list of anyone who commented saying they were interested.  After May 7th I should be able to set a final date for everything and will get in contact with those of you who contacted me either through email or in the comment section.

    Your smoothie caught my eye as I’ve been reading all the raves about green smoothies. but since you’ve added blueberries, did the color turn blue? my hubby won’t drink the green ones because of how it looks…but if i can make a blue “green” smoothies, then that might work.

    Sorry you didn’t have the greatest night of sleep! I need to try that Luna flavor – usually I don’t like them that much but I’ve been hearing fantastic things about this one!

    Have fun at lunch!!

    what a busy and productive day. there’s something to be said for accidentally waking up before 6am!

    i’ve never even looked twice at that luna bar, but after your crushed-oreos-on-peppermint-bark description, i suddenly have a hankering.

    it was great to see you today — can’t wait to do it again soon… and perhaps in NJ 😀
