For being slightly hungover this morning, I’m shocked at how productive today turned out to be. Jim asked me to accompany him to the mall to pick out a present for his grandmother’s birthday, so being the good wife that I am, I happily obliged. Shopping is a sure-fire way to forget a hangover. I had a cheese stick in the car since we left at noon and I wasn’t hungry enough for lunch yet.
After browsing for a bit, we settled on Kiehl’s bath stuff. I might have purchased a body wash for myself as well – gardenia…smells awesome. After the mall, I had an easy lunch:
Romaine & carrots topped with tuna salad, raisins, and balsamic vinaigrette…
…a slice of rye with Earth Balance margarine…
…and a 100 calorie bag of popcorn because I was feeling munchy.
After lunch and a reading session with SELF magazine, I tidied up around the house and did some laundry. A hour or so later I was hungry, so I had about 1/2 cup lowfat plain yogurt with 1/4 cup or so of Kashi GOLEAN Crunch:
Refueled and ready to go! Jim was gone golfing with Chris, so I set out on a shopping mission at Run for Your Life. I received some gift certificates for my birthday two months ago but was waiting to use them once my bra size changed again. Sports bras for the “well-endowed” are not cheap, my friends! I found one bra for running, one for lower impact stuff, and two sleeveless tanks. I’m excited about the tanks because now I won’t have tanlines from my T-shirts!
After my shopping spree, I set out to gather the weekly groceries at Target and Trader Joe’s. I might have thrown another sleeveless tank in the cart at Target as well…must have been the shopping demons taking over my hands (or at least that’s my excuse). It was 7 by the time I made it home but I wasn’t that hungry and wanted to try out my new workout gear. I had a piece of rye with ~1 Tbsp pbu to get me through the workout:
(Yes, this is a recycled picture from yesterday – I forgot to snap one…)
I took Kenan on a short run through our neighborhood – about a mile or so, and then did the P90X Shoulders & Arms DVD (~1 hr). I loved this one – I actually enjoy free weights quite a bit. They just make you feel strong and empowered! After shoulders & arms I completed the Ab Ribber workout (~15 min) – it definitely rips your abs apart! I am going to be so sore tomorrow!!!
I wasn’t really hungry after all the workouts, but knew I needed something substantial for dinner. So…I tried my first Green Monster!!!
In the blender:
– 1/2 cup 1% Keifer
– 1/2 cup lowfat plain yogurt
– 1 scoop unflavored whey protein
– 2 big handfuls baby spinach
– 1 frozen peach
– 1/3 cup frozen strawberries
It turned out almost brown, but it was delish! I was able to get away without adding agave nectar since the dairy was lowfat instead of fat free. I also had another piece of rye with pbu on the side, but I didn’t take a picture since it would just be a repeat of earlier.
Fatigue is finally starting to set in after my jam-packed day, so I believe I will be heading to bed shortly. I’ll try and post before seeing my dad in the morning, but if not, expect some flying pictures tomorrow night!
