Well, with all that Christmas talk happening yesterday, I’d say it’s about time to get back to the grind around here! Not only is Christmas over, but I’m also back to work today after having the last four days off. Yes, starting today, I’m officially full time at the job!
But backtracking a bit to yesterday…I had a busy day yesterday with a weird appetite, so I really just ended up snacking quite a bit throughout the afternoon. At one point, I did wind up making myself a yogurt bowl as a snack/mini meal to sit down with.
Some vanilla Chobani, lotsa blueberries, toasted oats, and Love Grown Foods granola. Simple yet delicious. There were, of course, other snacks that occurred throughout the afternoon, with the highlight being some TJ’s tortilla chips & pineapple salsa. SO good.
Mid-afternoon, I (surprisingly) found myself with a tiny extra bit of energy, so I decided to use it to my advantage and headed downstairs to the treadmill. Unfortunately for me, I had totally forgotten that our treadmill was folded up and shoved in a corner from when we had our Christmas party (yes, it’s been that long).
So instead, I came back upstairs and decided to bust out some reps for the exercises that I chose to do for the Closeout Workout Challenge (which I am failing miserably at – hopefully you guys are doing better than I am!). It felt so good to move a bit, despite the fact that it was just downright sad at how quickly I felt wiped out. Oy vey…
Speaking of workouts, I’ve actually been trying to research some good prenatal DVD’s out there…if there are any? I’m hoping to establish a bit more of a routine with the workouts once my energy levels come back (fingers crossed), and although I do have a few workout DVD’s that could still be used and modified, I’m trying to find some more. I have had a couple recommendations so far which look like they could be good:
Yoga Booty Ballet Baby On the Way by Beachbody
Has anyone tried any of these? I haven’t committed to any yet, but if anyone has any recommendations, I’d love to hear them!
Last Night’s Dinner
Knowing I was going to be out and about for most of the day, I figured it would be the perfect day to make some Low-Fat Crockpot Veggie Stew. I picked up the ingredients to make it last week, and have just been waiting for an opportunity to put it together since.
Gosh, I love this veggie stew. It’s definitely one of my favorites.
For dinner last night, I made myself half of a toasted Wolferman’s and a big bowl of the stew.
I topped it off with a little bit of shredded cheddar which, I must say, was a great addition.
Lots of stringy melted good stuff.
This morning, I have a bit of a challenge ahead of me, as Mother Nature decided to dump some snow on us overnight, and it’s still comin’ down.
Yuck…although I suppose it is pretty.
But seeing as we haven’t had any significant snow around here in forever, I’m sure my drive in to work this morning is going to be incredibly obnoxious. Let’s just hope I make it without any trouble!
Be on the lookout this afternoon for a little giveaway.
Question for the Morning:
Snow: love it or hate it?
