Two days, One heck of a long post!

So did everyone make it through Monday?? It was kind of a tough one for me... thankfully it's over and we're one day closer to the weekend :)

I absolutely did NOT want to get up to work out yesterday! I did anyway - after the hubby actually nudging me a few times... which is usually the other way around! We did Level 2 of the 30 day shred... I used 3, 5 & 8 lb weights throughout the video... I burned 200 calories Let me tell you - my.ass.hurts!!!! Holy cow!! I am sore!! I think the yoga on Sunday very much contributed to that, too. Bob's Yoga is not for wimps!

Yowza ;)

A quick food recap for Monday...
Breakfast -I tried to make an almond butter french toast type sandwich... with Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin bread... it was a great idea - but the bread seemed to break easily! I want to try this again with a sturdier bread - which you would think the Ezekiel bread would be... but not so much!

My mid-morning snack was a homemade trail mix... some Kashi Honey Sunshine and Kashi Heart to Heart cereal with almonds, cashews, dark chocolate chips and golden raisins... I had already had about half this bag when I remembered to snap a pic!

Lunch is somehow without a picture... I swear I took one! Just a simple turkey burger in a wrap with mozzarella cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion... with leftover veggies from dinner last night.

No pic of my next snack either.... Maddie and I ran over to Target and she wanted a juice from starbucks... it was SO hot out and I couldn't resist getting a tall light frappuccino!!

By the time we finished up at Target and the grocery store... it was 7:30!! I came home and threw this together for dinner... and downed it two times faster than it took to make!!
Tuna mixed with smart balance mayo, mixed greens, onion, tomato and arnolds thins with some sabra's hummus!

That's about the most excitement that went on for me on Monday!

As for today, it has been a little crazy! I woke up to my alarm but my body would NOT give in today! So I decided to let myself sleep in... I was supposed to go to a Zumba class with our best friend Lisa... but unfortunately that didn't happen :( Anyway - I got up, got ready for work... made some seriously quick eats on my way out of an Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin english muffin with 1 tbsp of PB on each side, a banana... and I stopped at Starbucks... Yes - AGAIN. Seriously - I did not realize that was 3 days in a row! I'm cut off for the rest of the week!!! Yeesh! Anyway, I got a non fat cinnamon dolce latte...

In my morning madness, I walked out without a thing for lunch... and was hoping to find a good wrap at Trader Joe's... which I did not find what I was looking for! :( Didn't matter - I got a phone call from Jr's dad asking me to come get Maddie (my in-laws are awesome - they watch Maddie for us while we work!) ... JR's grandmother has been in a nursing home for recovery from surgeries earlier this month... and they discovered today that she has some internal bleeding going on! :( Very scary stuff! So, I went over and got Maddie...

I was SO hungry on my way to get Maddie, I grabbed a couple of handfuls of this new mix I picked up at Trader Joe's today...

We headed home and at this point, it was 1:30 and I was beyond starving! I scarfed down lunch before even realizing I needed a picture! A La Tortilla wrap with probably about 2 tbsp hummus, grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato, onion and a slice of swiss... with just a couple of blue corn chips on the side for some crunch...

I put Maddie down for her nap (oh how I love nap time!) and got my work out on big time! I did Level 2 of 30 Day Shred (of course) and then did a Firm video... quite an older one - we're talkin' leotards and tights era ;) It's called Super Cardio Mix... lots of step work, 4-limb work, and plyometrics... and then I ended with lots of yoga type stretching. I got 626 calories burned today! Which made up for Zumba not being able to happen... this is about what I burn in a Zumba class!

I went right off to make a smoothie for a snack that I took about five sips of and threw out... not a good combo! I was going to have something else but realized it was too close to dinner and that could leave me some room to have some dessert tonight instead!

So dinner... made some meatloaf muffins with my new bbq sauce as the topping (and some with ketchup for JR, of course!)... leftover mashed sweet potatoes, corn that I shared with Maddie, squash and zucchini and a couple of carrots...

Not sure what we'll end up doing for dessert... but will be back to post that tomorrow :)

Please say a prayer for JR's grandmother! Last I had heard a few hours back, she was still being worked on in the ER...

Off to finish dinner and catch up on blogs... night!
