sick

28 Feb

not much going on with workouts the last few days.. i’ve felt like a piece of crap since sunday morning, skipped work monday, and barely made it in today..

i’m achy, nauseous, and have a headache.

thats all for now.. CPA exam tomorrow 😦 catch up soon.

sleepy tuesday.

29 Nov

this morning i woke up soooo tired. when will i go to sleep and wake up feeling refreshed?? even though it’s been a pretty sleepy tuesday, i ended up getting a lot done.

i left of talking about thanksgiving weekend. i ended up going out saturday night with barbara and brittany.. ended up spending over $50.. ugh, one of the main reasons i hate going to bars. i would rather spend my money on a nice dinner than a few drinks.

sunday was a pretty lazy day.. barbara was sick from drinking and i slept until 12:30 p.m. and loved every second of it. sometimes you just need to SLEEP, or that’s what i believe!

we put up some of the last of the decorations:

we ended up having a going away dinner for barbara; she will be in florida until the 11th, lucky brat! she requested spaghetti, but there was also steaks, homemade mashed potatoes, mac’n’cheese, and salad.

barbara didn’t start packing until 10:30 p.m. and we didn’t go to sleep until about 1:00 a.m. 😦 we were up by 3:30 a.m. so we could get to the airport on time. between salt from the long weekend and being up early, i looked pretty bad monday morning at work.

but i was excited cause i wore my new sweater (it’s red and i NEVER wear red, but i felt festive)

chugging started as soon as i got to work. i planned on getting well of a gallon of water in monday.

i was curious to see how many times i actually go to the bathroom based on how many oz. of water i drink, so i recorded it! haha (this was just at work, and i ended up going 2 more times before i left)

for dinner, i whipped something up from what we had in the freezer and cabinets. (i’ve decided i’m going to use everything in the cabinets and fridge, or as much as possible, to 1. use up what we have instead of buying something when we have it at home and 2. save some money since it is the holidays and all.)

dinner consisted of:

  • 1.25 lbs of turkey meat
  • 1 can of garbanzo beans
  • 1 can of hunts lower sodium diced tomatoes
  • 1 packet of ranch seasoning
  • a handful of oats
  • half of an onion, chopped
  • leftover green beans

..very random, but i put it all in a dish and baked it for about 30 mins @ 350 degrees. it was actually pretty good! i put a little bit of reduced sugar ketchup on top!

then, i hung out with this kid..

someone misses his mom; he wont even eat 😦

tuesday morning started out like this:

he refuses to come down the stairs for me.. half the time i have to carry him. he may be short, but he’s not light!

i woke up late, again, so i ended up not going to the gym, again, this morning. i really need to get my butt out of bed in mornings, i feel better when i go to the gym and i feel like the days go by faster when i workout in the mornings.

i also celebrate four eyes friday tuesday

meal 1 @ 7:00 am (on the way to work, since i was running late): 8 oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 4 oz of dark chocolate silk almond milk, 1 t of instant coffee, 1 scoop of EAS Whey chocolate protein powder + banana nut vitatop

.. this kept me full for SO long. i was so busy at work i wasn’t paying attention to the time, when i felt my stomach rumble i looked at the clock and it had been 4 hours since i ate!

meal 2 @ 11:05 a.m.: 1/3 cup of rolled oats, 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder, 1 T of sunbutter.

meal 3 @ 1:30 p.m. (because i knew i wouldn’t have time if i waited until 2): chicken salad (canned chicken, greek yogurt, celery, onion, celery seed) on 2 pieces of healthful flax and fiber bread with cucumbers on top + cucumbers with sabra roasted garlic hummus.

can i please just say that cucumbers should be on all sandwiches! they give such a good crunch factor!! i learned that i need to keep my bread separate until time of consumption because my bread got REALLY soggy 😦

GUESS WHAT.. I ENDED UP GOING TO THE GYYYYYYYYYM! weeee! i decided i need a good HIIT, which would hopefully pull me out of my funk i’m going through. my routine was really random (which i made up as i went), but i def got a good calorie burn!

when i looked down to see if the arc was reading my HR correctly, i noticed i hadn’t turned on my HRM. I HATE WHEN I DO THATTTT! i looked at what the arc ‘said’ i burned and i was at 187 calories.

that is what my HRM read after the last few mins on the ARC and 10 mins on the treadmill. i don’t think it was a half bad work!! i was definitely sweating when i got out of there and you know what, i felt AMAZING!

for dinner, i’ll prob have leftovers from yesterday and dinner is already cooking for tomorrow night! i LOVE crockpots! i put some randomness in there and hope it turns out turkey noodle soup, using the last of the leftover turkey from thanksgiving.

i’m done for the night.. i just want to relax. i’m going to start up studying within the next few days for my CPA exam on jan 3rd.. blah!

check ya later!
