Hello all, as the weekend draws to a close, I realize that I have stubled across one of the most valuable things in life- how to get everything you need done. The answer, you will find at the end. So as you might imagine I have gotten SO much done today, and it has been so productive and fantastic that I just can't help but smile :)
I bought these babies in addition to the usual. This is 4 lbs of strawberries and it was only $4.99!!!! I have sliced up half already, and sealed up the other half. And a few may have already made it into my mouth ;)
After our 2 grocery store trips and lunch, I unloaded the groceries, cleaned out the fridge and started the 1st of the 4 loads of laundry I have done today. I did manage to work on the test for an hour, enough time to eliminate enough questions so that I could leave it until tomorrow. This is where I had my major revelation...
I have been SO productive today because I was doing anything and everything else I could to avoid that test. So moral of the story, if you have a lot to get done. Find something that you really don't want to do, and add it to your to-do list. You will happily complete the rest in order to procrastinate on the one thing you don't want to do. I have now finished 16/20 questions on my test, and if I have time I will work on it more tonight. If not, I have all day tomorrow to finish before I have to have it submitted by midnight tomorrow night.
After the test I rewarded myself with a trip to the gym. I did 3.5 miles on the treadmill (it was raining here) and then I did leg weights. Of the 3.5 miles I ran, 1 mile was hill repeats, and I realized that hills are the biggest reason my leg hurts so I will stop doing hills until further notice- its not like we have a ton here anyways.
I had a kick-ass dinner planned for tonight, and it actually turned out so well, I am going in depth into what I did! It started with this, and an idea
I bought these All Natural Italian Style Chicken Sausages at Publix today, and knew I wanted to try one in my dinner. These are really good for what they are. 1 Sausage has only 130 calories, 7g of fat and 15g of protien. I tossed 1 sausage on the grill and the rest in the freezer. Once cooked I diced up the sausage and mixed it with 1 Tbsp Wheat Germ instead of bread crumbs. Once mixed up I mixed in about an ounce of crumbled goat cheese and put the entire mixture on top of a large portobella mushroom I had also grilled.
It turned out like this, and I also threw in a nice easy veggie for a side dish. This meal was amazing and filling
The whole thing has less than 400 calories and plenty of protien to keep you satisfied. I will definitely be making this again!!!!
I am going to spend the rest of my evening folding laundry and catching up on my large stack of magazines. I have an awesome week of running planned and I am excited to be back.
Since she is just so cute, I have to leave you with a Peachie picture of the week!!!
