Happy Sunday all! Ok….not so happy, I tried but still despise this day. I feel like this day would never end and got a lot done though so clicks to that.
I took Lincoln out this morning and of course when I have no bra on and am wearing my glasses, run into a hot new neighbor who also has a dog. I am talking like Channing Tatum hot.
Which I really never thought he was that hot but now looking at him, yeah he’s pretty hot (That’s for you Neyal). We ended up talking for a few minutes while our dogs played and bid our goodbyes.
I made a big Sunday breakfast with an egg and eggwhite omelet topped with avocado and ketchup with a side of turkey bacon and an english muffin with Trader Joe’s Superfruit Spread and coffee in my favorite mug.
I went to the pool for a few hours and had the place to myself. I got some reading done and listened to my iPod. With it being 85 degrees out, I thought more people would be there but I thought wrong.
When I got back in I was famished and ready to chow. I made a BIG Salad because it’s National Salad Month.
Seriously, isn’t this salad gorg? It has spinach, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, tomato, feta and carrots topped with T Marzetti’s Honey Balsamic
I also had the last two pieces from the pizza I made last night. I reheated in the oven so it wouldn’t get soggy and it smelled like pizzeria pizza by the time it was done.
After that, I ventured out to go shopping. I went to Ross and got a cute skirt, tank top, underwear and cutting boards. I love how ghetto fabulous Ross has become and actually prefer it over Marshalls or TJ Maxx. I think those two have become more expensive in the past few years and the only reason I go to those stores is to save money so it kinda defeats the purpose.
Then I went to Old Navy where the entire store (yes including clearance items) was 30% off and got a number of things–gaucho pants, a skirt, numerous tank tops, earrings and a necklace all for $60. And all within my budget too!
By the time I got home, the clouds were starting to set it and it was around 4P…..my least favorite part of Sunday. I struggle with Sunday afternoons because I want to do nothing but don’t want to nap. I popped in a Netflix movie I have—The Invention of Lying.
I fell asleep mid way through the movie because it was so bad so that sucks. I woke up right at the end and yeah, still sucked. I so need to revamp my Netflix queue.
Soon enough it was dinner time and I had something new….an orange meal. I’ve had a green meal before but never one of Oompa Loompa standards.
I baked chicken wings then tossed in wing sauce with a sweet potato on the side along with a shredded carrot and cilantro salad.
Random meal but delicious! Maybe I should start doing themes of colors for my meals?
Then I decided to go out for a run because I had nothing better to do. I really didn’t want to go because it was still hot and muggy out but I figured why not? I hydrated before I left and ended up only doing 1.75 miles. I started running in cold weather and like it that way, I am not digging running in hot weather at all. I was sweating like a whore in church, felt like I was going to pass out and just wasn’t feeling it. But then again, at least I was out there doing something but just disappointed I couldn’t push myself anymore because of how crappy I felt. I love running in cold weather, love the chill in the air, how the cold air enters my lungs but this hot stuff I cannot do.
How can I enjoy it more—wear lightweight clothes, hydrate more, etc? Any tips would be appreciated!
And I am not a pretty sweater by any means–I turn insanely red, am completely drenched and just nasty.
I put together my goals for the month of May (evaluation of April goals to come soon!)
*Keep on running
*Think outside the running box in regards to workouts and mix it up with other things (kettlebell, yoga, etc.)
*Be more aware of my sugar intake . There’s no Recommended Daily Allowance of sugar that I could find but the Department of Agriculture (USDA) advises adults who eat a 2,000-calorie diet to limit consumption of sugar to about 40 grams (10 teaspoons) so I will follow those guidelines.
*Track my food and exercise on a daily basis
So that’s it, I will rock these.
Oh–click here to win some Justin’s Nut Butter! And has anyone seen Justin? He’s pretty damn hot.
Hope everyone is having a terrific evening!
