Good afternoon! I am happy to say that I woke up today feeling much better than yesterday! It seems like the stomach flu is going around here because another lady at my gym was sick with it, and now poor Jacob is sick.
I picked up a few of these Quaker oatmeal cups over the weekend (mostly because I was too lazy to make my own) and they are delicious!
So far I’ve had the cherry pistachio, summer berry, and peach flavors. I love all of them. I usually stick to my Kashi Go Lean cereal but these are great for something different or for a treat on the weekend.
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
- Plank #27 – 3 minutes and 12 seconds
- (Yesterday’s Plank #26 – 1 minute and 30 seconds)
My normal plank time is back!
Since I was feeling better this morning, I headed to BodyPump at 9 am. I realized after the warm-up that my back still is 100%, so I made sure to take it easy and lift lighter weight than normal. It was nice to be back!
After the gym, I took the kids for a quick game of glow mini golf.
They had a lot of fun, but I have never heard two kids argue so much about how the other one hits the ball. Jeesh. I told them that it wasn’t the mini golf championships and not to worry about how the other one hits the ball, and to just be quiet and play fun mini golf!!!
We only played a quick round because we decided to go meet Danny out by his work for lunch. We went to Go Roma, and I had the pizza and salad combo. I didn’t get a good picture because the lighting was bad, but the salad I had was wonderful.
I had the Pear and Walnut salad and it came with baby greens, fresh pear, goat cheese, seasoned walnuts, dried cranberries, and aged balsamic vinaigrette. It was soooo good. I have only had goat cheese a few times, and I am not a huge fan of it, but I really liked it on this salad. It has such a nice creamy texture.
They just put a Yumz Frozen Yogurt in next to Go Roma, so of course we had to stop there afterwards.
But eyes were way bigger than my stomach because I could not finish all that fro-yo. I was really into the Reese’stoday…
We said good-bye to Danny, and then stopped at Hobby Lobby so I could pick up a few things for Easter. I let the kids pick out a wooden object to paint. Jaden picked out a box and a “J”. Jacob just got a “J”.
They love painting and for only a few dollars, it keeps them busy for a while.
Weight Loss Wednesday
I have decided to skip weight loss Wednesday this week. My eating has been all over the place with getting together with my family over the weekend, Danny being home on Monday, spring break with the kids, and being sick.
I know that if I get on the scale, I won’t be happy with the number, and I don’t feel like dealing with that. I know that my happiness shouldn’t be based on a number on the scale, but if you want me to be completely honest, it is.
I’ve worked hard to lose 30+ pounds, so seeing any weight gain discourages me. Right now, I am working on getting to my goal weight and then will work on maintaining that number with a 5 pound plus/minus difference.
I also know that this will be a hard weekend with Easter coming up. I had just started to lose weight last Easter, and I remember eating really good that day. It seems that now that I have lost weight, I give myself a little slack…maybe too much slack.
I still have about 13 days left in the Fit Fluential DietBet, so I’m not too worried. Next week will be crunch time!
- Are you doing anything fun during spring break?
- When’s the last time you went mini golfing?
- Do you like goat cheese? Favorite cheese?
