So my plan this morning was to take our dog to the trail for a long walk. He sleeps at the foot of our bed on the floor, usually on a down comforter. Since Tony was still sleeping, I bent down to Ed and whispered in his ear “do you want to go for a walk?” Typically, any mention of the word walk, or any word that rhymes with walk for that matter will send him running to the back door!
Today, not so much! So I went to Plan B. It was about 6:45 a.m., and at 7:00 Body Sculpting with Gilad came on discovery health channel. Today’s workout was shoulders, abs and thighs. 10 minutes of abs, 10 minutes of shoulders and 10 minutes of lunges. After the program was over I did 10 minutes of stretching which was nice!
So then I decide I am going to make dinner. I started making marinara sauce from fresh tomatoes last night, and while I was doing my workout, I put it back on the heat for final seasoning. So I made a lasagna – my half is spinach and Tony’s half is meat. I am anxious to see how the nutrition turns out, I wrote down everything I put in but didn’t put it in MasterCook yet.
So here I am thinking I have all the time in the world, when all of a sudden I look up and its 8:10! I hadn’t even put my breakfast and lunch together, let alone shower or dress! So this is what I did:
So breakfast was 1 light English muffin, 1/4 cup egg white, 1/4 cup egg beaters, .5 ounce fat free feta cheese, 3 slices 95% lean deli ham, 4 ounces 4% cottage cheese and an orange.
So the plan for lunch is to bake a spaghetti squash – I’ll probably put it in the oven around 11, its pretty big (love having a kitchen at work!) with some of the marinara from this morning with baby spinach, crushed red pepper and a light english muffin garlic bread.

So what was the deal with “to be continued!” I say Mike made the weigh in, but I hate having to wait a week to find out! But I LOVE that Mike gave Aubrey his years worth of groceries! That made me tear up just a bit!
Okay, morning break is over. I’ll see you at lunch!
