Hey Guys ~ Took my camera with me today & snapped pics of all eats!
I plan to stay on top of this blogging thing wayyy better than I have been!!
Better than I have been = Should not be hard :)
Dessert from last night …
^ Check out all these blackberries! I picked them up at Costco yesterday ~ They cost as much as the little teeny box I usually buy at Marsh, which is about 1/6 of this box.
^ Yes, I have tried Greek yogurt. Yes, I know it is the healthier option.
I just do not like it. I am going to try it again eventually, but for now I am sticking to the Yoplait deal. I used half of this jar…
^ The cereal is Kashi ~ Yum!
Breakfast this morn …
^ Sandwich Thin + spray butter + Full Circle organic strawberry jam
(I found a new 90 cal Sandwich Thin – which means the half above is only 45 cals!!! I will try to snap a pic of the bag next time)
Lunch at my desk …
^ I quickly scattered everything from lunchbox to desk
^ Sonoma Jacks cheese wedgie
(I liked these n. facts better than Laughing Cow wedgies)
^ Lunch is organized & prepared
^ Wasa wheat cracker – I found them in my cabinet and they need to be eaten
^ Teeny bowl of blackberries / yog / cereal
^ This was supposed to be my prep time snack
^ It was the end of my lunch instead ~ yum, yum, yum
This lunch did not look like a lot when I packed it last night, but I was so full afterwards. And I remained full throughout the day – even during prep when I am normally hungry again! Maybe it was the Clif Bar ?? Or all those veggies!
My hands stayed out of the candy jar today, too – by the way…

I was super-productive at school today. I graded tons of papers, entered them into my grade book, and passed them back to students. Feels really great to get huge piles of papers out of my life…
After school I packed up and headed straight to the gym.
Today’s gymmie thing:
- Treadmill – 40 minutes
- Incline 1.5 / Speed 6.5
- Intervals of Incline 7.5 / Speed 7.7
- HR: 160 – 188
- Elliptical – 10 minutes
- Gluteal program
- HR: 160 – 175
- Bike – 15 minutes
- First time using this machine
- No clue what I was doing
- Surprised by how few calories were burned
- Legs are already sore
Do you ever use the bike at the gym ?? Any words of advice / wisdom before I try again ?
Dinner tonight …
^ Lettuce Wraps – found these at Costco yesterday
^ Quick facts
^ Ingredients: chicken, rice, lettuce
^ I never thought these things would fill me up (for some reason)…
^ … so I made a side of broccoli to go with
^ Lettuce Wrap – I ate five of these little things = Stuffed!
I am happy to be back in the world of blogging! :)
I am going to do a little research on bike machines and calories burned. I remember hearing that biking & swimming burned more calories than anything else, but it just did not seem like that today – watching the stats on the bike. Maybe it is because I had no clue what I was doing…
I will let you know what I find. And you let me know any information you know about the bike! Is it a good workout ??
Have a good evening, Friends!!! :)
PS: I did update my Progress page ~ no new pics yet, though. The pics are new to that specific page, but have all been in previous posts.
