Swallowed your hollaback girl

29 Mar

You know it’s going to be a happy monday when you’re morning “coffee” is brewing at home and you forget to put grinds in the night before, waaaa waaa waaaaaaaa 😦

I had a Venti Iced Coffee with Soymilk and three splenda’s from the Bucks for a morning pick me up

I had a new concoction for breakfast–Chobani Strawberry, Sliced Peaches, Unsweetened Coconut and Fiber One Cereal

It was a party in my mouth–a lot of flavor everywhere!

I was evil again and loaded more chocolate onto my co-workers. I like how I am telling them what to do.

I had lunch with Gwen

Would have much preferred lunch with Gavin though…..hello daddy.

Sigh……ok, what was I talking about? Oh yeah….lunch. fun.

I love it when lunch doesn’t sound appetizing at all but then you taste it and find yourself wrong. I didn’t want my lunch today although it sounded good when I put it together last night….potato wedges,baked tofu bits, black beans, jalapeno, shredded cheese and a side of greek yogurt.

 I love when a meal proves me wrong. This was asbolutely fabulous.

For dinner I had baked panko porkchops and broccoli slaw with T Marzetti Honey Balsamic Dressing and tomato

I finally got off my butt to go run. I haven’t ran since my 5K……yeah over two wks ago. My knee and calves were hurting for the first wk and then last wk, pure laziness deterred me from workking out. I need to get on a consistent schedule again whether it be running, walking, kettlebell, etc. and stick with it. I feel so much better when I work out and only takes an hour out of my day. An hour which I have been sitting on my butt watching tv.

I went to the YMCA where I used to go to before they jacked up my rate to $65/month because I turned 30. Not happy about that. The YMCA was where I started my weight loss journey and was one of the only gyms in my life that I felt comfortable going to. I know it is just money and that I shouldn’t have stopped going but I basically lost motivation doing cardio only and the fact they jacked up my rate because I turned 30 really pissed me off. Basically, if I was married and had children it would have been cheaper per person but since I am 30, single and no kids, my rate gets jacked up. I have a reminder of that enough every day (and from my mother) that I don’t need that getting in the way of my gym rate.

Rant over……so I went to the YMCA I used to go to go because they have an outdoor dirt track. After 12 minutes I wanted to stop but then this track came on and made me smile

because it then made me think of this movie

And those two things just kept me going. I ended up walking/running for 35 minutes. Not too shabby for not working out at all in 2 wks.

I stopped at Harris Teeter on the way home and got some cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, apples and bananas for the week. I then went to Walgreens to get some bubble bath, which I couldn’t find. Weird. I went to one of the ladies who work there and asked where the bubble bath was and she had no clue what I was talking about. Which confused me because was in her 40’s and sounded like she was from here and I had to explain what bubble bath suds were and she looked at me like I was crazy for wanting to take a bubble bath.

Yeah, I am 29 30 yrs old and love my bubble baths, shoot me.

She then said they have Mr. Bubble where I shot back with “Mr Bubble sucks”. All said with a smile though since my humor wins everyone over 🙂 I ended up with bath beads which also sucks but oh well, momma needed a long soak!

I came home and made a green monster. I’ve had some morning green monsters the past two wks but was ready for a proper protein filled green monster after my run. In the mix tonight—baby spinach, blackberry kefir, vanilla whey protein and milk.

Holy shizzle—this is the mother of all giveaways!!! Click here to win a Health Refridgerator Makeover on Danica’s Page—or don’t because I want to win lol 🙂 Includes a $100 gift card, healthy recipes and tips on what to stock and more!

This was a great start to the week! It is quarter end which is a super busy time for my line of business. Tomorrow should be another slow day at work then the craziness will resume on Wednesday. But I will be gone by Thursday afternoon on my way to Indiana! I am stopped and staying at my friend’s place in Charleston, WV Thursday night then drive the rest of the way to Indianapolis on Friday morning. Some things that I get excited about when going to Indianapolis:

Cafe Patachou: They have an awesome menu and great coffee–Highlander Grog is my favorite and I always buy a bag to take home with me!

Fannie May Trinidad’s—I will be stocking up

Meijer—so much better than WalMart and they always have cute sports apparel for cheap….along with scratch off lotto vending machines 🙂

 And my sister and my nieces of course 🙂 But those are a few of my favorite Indiana things.

 And Ricky Martin—you go! It’s about time and I always knew you were too pretty to be straight. You can officially drink from the cup of life, shake your bon bon and live the vida loca. But not too loca since you got the twins.

    Your issue with your gym membership is my issue with coupons i get for restaurants- when they don’t let you do carryout or when it has to be “two for one”. Grrr… what if I was just lazy and wanted to grab some cheap eats for myself?!?!

      laughing out loud. Amen sister. I feel the same exact way!

        Agreed!!! I cannot stand when I get all these coupons for BOGO, why can’t I just 50% off of one meal? Grrrr…..

    OMG Ricky Martin’s kids are so cute! All I have to say is: ’bout time! Saw him in concert before he “retired”. Amazing!
    As for your coffeemaker incident… Definitely happened to me before!

    I understand the price we have to pay to be healthy..I pay $70 a month to go to 24 hour fitness..I can’t wait to move to Austin & have it lowered almost 50%!!

    AND I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. The food you make always looks SO good..will you send me that potato meal? Can I just say YUM!?

    Okay so seriously I HATE baths…I haven’t ever gotten the concept. Don’t you get cold?

    • simplyshaka March 30, 2010 at 8:04 pm #

      Oh no, I make it scalding hot and it is uncomfortable for about a minute but then totally relaxing. I like it only when I can see the steam rising from it!
