Working Out Feed

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. 


I knew that wouldn't last. :P

Yeah, I totally changed the layout today. I like this one a lot better.  For some reason the links at the top will only let me show four, so I put the Typepad about page and the feed link in the sidebar.  I really like this layout.  The banner picture is from Murrells Inlet South Carolina along the Marshwalk.  My friend and I usually walk along it when we visit the Dead Dog Saloon.  I liked this picture that I took in the evening after our visit.  

I hope to keep this layout for a while.  I can either do a dark background or a light one. I prefer the light one, I think.  What do you think?

In other news, I'm pup sitting.  Wait.... I told you this yesterday! :P  These are two very small dogs, so WHY did I not have any room on my bed last night?! lol  Seriously!  Crazy little pups.  They are good dogs though so that is nice.  I hate to tell their peeps that they are going to be uber spoiled when they get home. :P

I crated them when I did today's workouts.  I didn't want to have to worry about them being underfoot!  They watched me for a bit like I was crazy and then went to sleep. lol  It was kind of hilarious.  I got my workouts done and then took them outside.  I had a delicious lunch with delicious coffee.  Now I'm going to relax in my room with the air conditioner.  I need to run up to my friend's house later and check on the house.  Make sure it's locked tight and everything looks okay.  I'll probably wait until a bit later to do that.  For now, I want to relax.  Well, what I really want is to go to Starbucks and get a cascara latte. lol  I did a Star dash recently with the Starbucks app and I have a free drink on my app. :D  I love star dash times because you can earn a free drink quickly!  

Okay, I'm going to relax for a bit.  I didn't sleep well at all last night because one, it was too hot, and two, I had two heaters on my bed... I mean two dogs on my bed lol  Hopefully we can all get situated tonight and I'll sleep well.  Wish me luck!

PS I added my Pinterest feed to the sidebar but it's not showing up.  Well... if I choose just ONE picture, that will show up, but if I want to show more, nope.  I'll try to get it worked out.  I'll leave it for now.
