This not being employed thing is not good for my sleep schedule. I’ve got to get it under control. I’m up wicked late and sleeping in until 8:30am even though I set my alarm for 7:00am everyday. It’s just impossible to get up but I need to get an earlier start. Plus when I get a job it’ll be a rude awakening. Literally!
It doesn’t help that Tommy is home until almost 9 everyday. He always works a little from home before going in to bypass some of the traffic. He needs to start kicking my butt out of bed!
I was lucky enough to meet my friend Amelia for lunch today. This is the girl that is responsible for getting me addicted to Zumba! I’m grateful for that! It’s completely changed the way I workout – and what I consider a good workout to be! Whew! She is also my soul sister with all things food and workout related. I really relate to her and find that she is very easy to talk to about my struggles and my wins. I’m so glad to have her in my life!
She works on campus so we went somewhere close for lunch and ended up at FoodHeads where they have yummy sandwiches, soups and salads.
I ran errands after lunch and when I finally got home it was almost 4:00pm and I hadn’t had a snack or anything since my early lunch. I was famished. I wanted something absolutely delicious and Alexis made me a smoothie – same one as I listed yesterday. It was absolutely fantastic but lots of calories. Argh! I’m not big on drinking my meals but damn these are tasty!
Dinner was a family favorite! We make this at LEAST once a week lately. It’s definitely a favorite of all of ours!
For a workout today Alexis & I went to Zumba. Three days in a row of Zumba and my body is hurting! I hope that I see some results this weekend when I weigh in and measure. I certainly am feeling some changes happening. Wow – my hips and my calves are on fiyah!! Since it’s Spring Break there were only 4 of us in the Zumba class today. We were all front and center and on display for the instructor. Kind of awesome and kind of awkward. Ha ha!
Unfortunately my calories were over today by 70 which is a huge sadness. I know that it’s because of the smoothie but at least all of my food today was good and there was no binging or bad choices made at all. That’s a win!
