Working Out Feed

Finally!

I can sit and write a blog post for today.  It's been a long and busy one!  This morning, I got up and took the dogs out and then brought them in and had some glorious coffee.  I really needed it as I slept horribly last night.  I enjoyed every sip!  I did a few of my morning things and then had breakfast and more coffee! :P  I called my friend around 1:30 to check on their progress home.  They had just walked in their door!  I was surprised!  I jumped up, dressed, and walked the two dogs up.  Then, she drove me back down to get the crate and food that was left.  I rode with her to take that back and then I headed home.  I was going to do my workouts right then as it was almost time to do them, but I was tired and hot so I decided I'd get them in later.

I watched Sailor Moon until time for lunch.  I'm less than ten episodes from finishing! WAH!  I had a delicious lunch and then I went for a walk.  I walked down to Ballou Park.  I went in the park and then across the street into the shopping center.  I went in Dollar General to look around and then headed back.  I got a cute reusable drink cup in there that looks like a cola can.  It has  pink lid and there are gumballs on it.  I didn't really need it, but I bought it.  I thought it was on sale for 70% off, but it only rang up as 25% off.  I declined at first, but she tossed it in a hand basket to take back later and I felt bad for it so I bought it! LOL  Yeah, I'm weird.  In any case, it's now sitting here on my desk until I decide if I'm going to use it for drinks or for something else!

I ran out of the creamer that I really like today.  It's International Delight brand and the flavor is Caramel Macchiato.  When I bought it this month, I had a coupon for two of their products.  I got one of those and one of the one touch latte cans.  I also saw the store brand of the caramel creamer and decided to try it.  I did and it's almost exactly the same at the ID one. It's good and a bit cheaper.  That is always a good thing!

I came back from my walk and relaxed a bit.  It was really hot as I walked pretty fast.  I had my dinner and then watched some shows on HLN.  I did my workouts.  I washed two loads of clothes today and both are put away.  I also took a bath and washed my hair.  I'm all caught up on everything I needed to do today.  Go me!  Now, I'm just going to grab the Kindle and read until bedtime.  I hope to sleep well tonight.  I'll have the bed to myself, so that might help. You wouldn't think two little dogs would take up SO MUCH space! LOL!


Saturday and Starbucks....

I guess you can figure from the post title that I went to Starbucks today.  I hadn't planned to go, but I decided I wanted a latte.  I went and got a tall maple pecan latte.  It was really good, too!  I will try to not go again for at least a week. :p  I went and checked on my friend's house today and everything was okay up there.  I borrowed their van to make my Starbucks trip. :p

I really haven't done much of anything else today.  Well, that isn't exactly true.  I did my workouts and I took the pups outside many times.  It's just been sort of a blah day.  My dinner was extremely blah!  I bought a new frozen dinner the last time I went to the grocery store.  I tried it tonight and it was just so blah! lol  It was a new brand and it was teriyaki chicken.  It had brown rice in it.  That part was really good, but the rest wasn't much to talk about!  There was hardly any chicken in there.  Oh well.  Live and learn.  I only bought one package, so at least I don't have to worry about that!


Wednesday and post time!

So, I am actually posting today!  I have been on track today with everything, so I thought I'd post to my blog early.  I have done my workouts, too!  I was thinking of going to Starbucks tonight, but I don't think I'm going to.  Maybe tomorrow night.  I want to get my four pen pal letters written.  I need to go out and pick up a prescription before the pharmacy closes at 8 tonight.  I might do that or wait until tomorrow.  I'm not sure.  I was hoping it would be ready when I was out yesterday, but I didn't get the text that it was available until after I had gotten home.  I had to run a few errands yesterday and was hoping to get it while out.

I went to carry my recyclables to the recycle center yesterday.  I then went to Food Lion to get some of the One Touch latte stuff.  It was on sale and they were out of the caramel.  They had plenty of the mocha and the vanilla.  I decided to run to another Food Lion that isn't too far away from my main one.  They had two cans left of the caramel, so I bought them both! LOL!  

I'm trying to decide how to share more of my beach trip pictures.  I am not sure if I want to make an album like I did for the Spring trip, so go to a photo sharing site.  I wish that Flickr was more polished.  I'd use that.  The sites that I really like are pay sites and I can't afford that!  I'll keep looking into it and see what I can find.  If you have any suggestions of great photo sharing sites where I can post albums, that would be great!


Monday post beach trip.

I got back to my regular routine today and it was not fun! LOL  I miss being at the beach.  It was hard to get out of bed today.  My bed is so comfortable and I actually slept for once!  I still need several more good nights of sleep to make up for all I've missed for so long!

I went to the post office today to check my box.  It was stuffed!  I only had four pen pal letters.  The rest was other stuff.  I was surprised that I didn't get more letters.  Oh well, four is good!  I was thinking of running by Starbucks while I was out, but I decided to just come home.  I will go later this week.

I did my workouts late.  I still need to catch up on yesterday's and I will.  I am glad I got today's done.  I also got the front lawn mowed.  It was really needed, too! I need to do the back, but I'll do it another day.  I am hoping to only have to do it one more time this season.  That would be nice. I don't want to have to mow again until next year! :p

I am going to do a picture post soon, I am getting back on track today, so tomorrow I should be able to get some pictures up.  I need to relax for a little while and then I'm going to get a few things done and then go to bed. 


Monday again.

It has been a long day.  I did my workouts earlier than usual because I wanted to go outside during most of the eclipse.  I did that but I was disappointed.  I didn't have any of the glasses, so I couldn't really look!  I thought it would get dark, but it never did.  According to NASA, we were supposed to get 91% totality here.  I guess that 9% was enough to keep it light outside!  I didn't really notice much of a difference. Oh well.  I did get to see the cool pictures other people posted.

I went back to Dollar Tree tonight.  I got two cute little notebooks with adorable paper.  I already cut out the pages and trimmed them to make stationery.  It's pretty cool.  One notebook had pink paper with macarons, and one had blue paper with butterflies.  I also got a few other things.  


Wednesday again.

So, today's workouts were hell! Lol  It's cardio day and the #100burpeeburnout was on there. I drank three bottles of water during my workouts! Lol

I ran out to go to the post office and mail my letters. While I was out, I somehow found myself in the Starbucks at Target! Lol I don't know how that happened. :p

Starting fresh on Monday!

I have decided that on Monday, I'm going to start fresh on my eating. I'm going to limit my calories to the range of 1200 to no more than 1400.  I have been eating entirely too much junk!  I know I can do this as I have done it before.  I want to get back to the weight I was last year at this time and then down to my goal weight.  Does this mean no more Starbucks?  No, of course not!  I won't be getting cookies and extras, but I'll still be getting cascara lattes.  The one reason I loved the cascara lattes was that they were a lot lower in calories than the other lattes and it's perfectly sweet.  I make it even less calories because I always get mine with almond milk.  

So, this weekend, I'm trying to get rid of anything that will not be good for me starting on Monday.  I have a bag of chicken breasts in the fridge that I've had for a bit.  I can make one of those for dinner or lunch.  I know it's going to be hard, but I also know I can do it.  I have a head start this time as I don't drink soda anymore.  Back in the day, the calories included sodas.  With me drinking water, it is calorie free.  Also, my coffee isn't much on calories either.  The coffee itself is calorie free.  I use a little creamer cup (10 calories) and honey as my sweetener.  It's less than 100 a cup.  I may also just do the creamer and skip the honey.  I am determined to do this!

 


Frustrations!

It's been one of those days!  I finally got notification that the post office had my package.  It got there too late to be delivered today.  I went over there twice trying to get it and I couldn't either time.  The first lady was really helpful and tried her best.  The second time, the guy was an ass.  He is the same one that I can't stand when he works the counter at the other location.  I really want to punch him in the face. UGH.  He is such an ass!

Anyway!  I didn't get my package.  Hopefully it will be delivered tomorrow.  We'll see.  I think that taking 11 days to get here is pretty ridiculous.  The best part?  UPS transferred it to to USPS last night.  It then went to Roanoke and  back to Danville for no apparent reason. ~_~;  So annoying.  I hope all my goodies will be worth it!

The first trip out, I went and hit the Starbucks drive thru.  I got a tall cascara latte.  I needed it!  Later, my friend asked if I wanted to go to lunch.  I did, so we met at a local restaurant.  I've never been to this restaurant before.  It was pretty good.  I had breakfast food.   After I left there, I went to the Food Lion at Ballou Park and was going to buy some of the one touch latte stuff.  They were out of caramel.  I went to the Food Lion on Westover and was able to find some there.  I got in the 12 or fewer line and some woman with 16 items was in front of me.  If that wasn't enough, when I went out to get in my car, she was parked next to me and she was loading her car on the passenger side. ~_~; I wanted to smack her, too!

I finally got in my car and headed home.  There was no way I was going anywhere else!  Hopefully tomorrow will be better.  I wouldn't have gotten Starbucks today, but I really needed it and it was double star day! :p


Hoo boy!

So, I decided I wanted to do something totally different with my bedroom.  I wanted to move my bed to a different spot.  I moved a bunch of stuff in my room, and then moved my bed.  I didn't like how it fit in the spot I had picked.  It was a bit too big for the spot and it hung out a little bit in front of the window.  I didn't like that, so I moved it back!  It took a lot longer than it should have.  I did get the areas behind some of the furniture cleaned up though!  These pieces are hardly ever moved, so it was nice to get back there and clean those up.  I dusted and swept the entire corner.  Everything is back in place now and I'm tired!  I usually eat dinner at 8pm.  I just finished it about five minutes ago!  

Earlier today, I went with a couple of friends to Starbucks to get the bogof on the Caramel Macchiato deal.  I used my new tumbler and I love it!  It was BUSY in there.  I saw two of the regulars that I know from the old location.  My friend had an errand to run and we went and did that and then went back to Starbucks to the drive thru.  My friend's mom and son wanted Starbucks too! LOL  We got them theirs and took it to them.

I went home and fixed lunch as it was time to eat.  I relaxed and did some stuff around the house and then did my workouts.  It was later than usual, but they got done!  I was just watching television and trying to figure out how I wanted to move my room around.  I did that and as I said before, I moved it back! LOL

I am going to watch some Unsolved Mysteries and relax until bedtime.  I hope to get a good night's sleep!


Tuesday and stuff.

So, today is the last full day I'll have the pups.  They go home tomorrow.  Yay! LOL  I will have my bed back.  Also, I want to straighten up my room!  I did my workouts today.  When I woke up, my abs were sore.  Guess what day it was on the calendar?  Yep, abs and obliques. OUCH!  I got through though.  I had a nice lunch and relaxed for a bit  I went to my friend's house to make sure everything was still okay.  Everything was, so I came back here.  My friend who likes to walk said if it didn't rain, he wanted to walk tonight.  I am pretty sure it isn't going to rain, so we should be able to walk.  Well, he said walk or ride.  The city now has a bike share program and you can rent bikes down at the trail.  Cool, yes?  I want to do that.  It's too hot to walk.

My friend just texted me that it's only supposed to get to be 83 or so this week. It's 89 right now! ~_~; I think he is in denial! LOL!  I will still go with him though.  It will be nice to get out for a bit.  Hopefully he won't want to go tomorrow.  I'd like to go to Starbucks with my pen pal letters.
