Monday...You Again?

Good morning, D here. The weekend flew by and once again the school/work week started. I slept in a bit, I guess it's not a good idea to take a sleep aid at 1AM...*face-palm*. I was still out of bed before 8AM. I miss those long ago days of lounging around in my bed until I wanted to get up. 

After I rolled out of bed and took a shower I was once again on the prowl for food. I went to the kitchen and decided to have some regular (unflavored) oatmeal with the frozen blueberries I had gotten at the store. I then added 1tbsp of Greek God's Honey Blueberry Yogurt. I made a mistake and didn't get low-fat, so I will have to use self control when it comes to eating it. I also added a drizzle of local organic honey and just a sprinkle of brown sugar = YUM! I'm so happy that I figured out how to make my own blueberries and cream oatmeal, those are my favorite packets. And since there are only 2 per box...I was always sad when I had eaten them all and then I was stuck with eating the peaches and cream ... blegh!

Once breakfast was over I had to get up and get some cleaning and laundry done. It's amazing how dusty a house can get...And for some reason the hubster and I thought that a glass coffee table and 2 glass side tables were a good idea. I found myself once again scrubbing little finger and hand print schmears from off of them all, along with who knows what other kind of grime. I then tackled the mountain of laundry that once again was trying to take over. I despise laundry...it's the bane of my existence. 

By lunch time I was ravenous and ready to eat. After my husband got home we decided to have grilled cheese sandwiches (I had 1/2 of one), a cup of vegetarian vegetable soup, a baby dill pickle, and a big salad. It was a great lunch and it hit the spot.

I spent the afternoon catching up on some shows, playing with my daughter and switching laundry from the washer to the dryer. Today I have the pleasure of folding it all...yay :(  Then before I knew it, the boys were at the door and then homework duty started, after a snack and a chat. I decided that I would try my hand at making Spinach and Cheese Enchiladas for dinner. I found a recipe online and then winged it and used what stuff I had at home. I was very happy with how they turned out. They were a big hit (at least with my husband, my oldest and myself....the lil ones are just too picky still) and I look forward to having the left overs for lunch.

Through out the day I snacked on some dry roasted and lightly salted peanuts. The store was all out of cashews :( The peanuts will work in a pinch...but they just aren't as delicious. They are more grainy where cashews are just creamy yumminess. I miss my cashews!

I wasn't able to get to the gym yesterday...for some reason my legs felt extra tight and sore. I decided it was a good idea not to strain them and I gave them a small break. I did hop on my exercise ball for 20mins and did some core work as well as lifting weights. I then got back in my recliner where I did some leg lifts and some ball squeezes. I bought a cheap children's ball and use that. It's a great exercise for your inner thighs and butt. What I love about doing those types of work outs is that I work up a decent sweat and I am really using my muscles, plus I get to watch my favorite shows while doing it. :)

Until next time; keep your chin up, see if you can make better food choices, and move your body. A better food choice could be as simple as buying whole wheat instead of white (pasta and bread). Also trade out one soda for a large iced water, or maybe take the stairs instead of the elevator. I hope you all have a great day! :)
