I’m defintely beginning to notice a pattern. I always end up in a sort of funk near the middle of the month. I need to figure out how to avoid this. Any suggestions?
This morning was one of those mornings were I laid in bed seriously considering calling in sick. I just did not want to get out of bed and go to work. Ultimately, I got my butt out of bed after about 10 minutes because calling in today would have made tomorrow that much worse. As much as I generally do like my job, that is a major down side. If I’m out of the office unexpectedly stuff seriously piles up.
As a treat for getting myself out of bed, I decided to make some stuffed French Toast for breakfast. Last week I made Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese frosting, and I’ve had the leftover frosting in my fridge ever since.
I spread 2 T. of the frosting on one slice Pepperidge Farm Double Fiber Whole Wheat bread, topped it with the other slice sandwich style and dipped it in my egg mix. The egg mix was 2 eggs, a splash of skim milk, some vanilla extract, a few shakes of cinnamon and a couple shakes of nutmeg. This was the first time I’d put nutmeg in my French Toast egg mix, and it was brilliant. I’d really forgotten how much I enjoy nutmeg.
Tonight Chris and I are going to do some shopping; he needs new shoes and I’m pretty much always in need of new clothes since I keep shrinking. Afterward, we’re heading to Chris’ mom’s house for dinner since his Grandma is back from Florida. Hopefully whatever she makes isn’t too much of a caloric nightmare.
I was a a bad girl yesterday and skipped my planned 6.5 mile run. I ran a bunch of errands and then when I got home my toilet would not stop running so I had my dad come over to look at it. That unexpectedly consumed a good chunk of my evening.
I did do my first day of the Whittle My Middle challenge though. I’m a week late in starting, but better late than never. I also kind of threw it together last night while watching TV. I’ll post mesurements today when I get home, and I’m going to start tracking it here daily.
Lsat night I did…
- 60 second plank
- 30 second plank
- 15 Stability Ball Crunches
- 15 Stability Ball Jackknifes
I also did a couple Sun Salutations before I went to bed. Tomorrow’s plan is to get up early for another day of Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. I also have yoga class in the evening and the I’ll be doing some speedwork on the treadmill afterwards.
Also, you can expect a pretty big post soon which more or less explains why I haven’t been posting as much lately.
