I neglected to mention that I slept for 12 hours on Saturday night! I didn’t get out of bed until 10:30, and I seriously could have slept until noon.
Tony made me another one of his delicious breakfasts – eggs on a corn tortilla with my baja fresh salsa, cheese and tater tots on the side.
- 2 cups basil
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 ounce almonds
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- cracked pepper
Tony had picked up this hot dog sauce when we were at Fresh Market. I instantly remembered that Mary Beth made some Coney island sauce, which I need to try soon!
After Hannah got home from work, we heated out to go bowling. Mind you, I used to be on a bowling team when I was in my early 20’s. My average used to be about 220. Well, after bowling about once every three years, um, let’s just say its not that great anymore!
I had asked Hannah to write down anything she needed at the store. She wrote down “onions.” I had no idea what that meant, so right now, in my refrigerator is . . . a white onion, a yellow onion and scallions! I am pretty sure that is a first in my house!
Later on Hannah made a baked potato and diced up some chives. I just wanted the world to know that a mother’s love is greater than her hate of onions!
When Hannah and I got home from bowling, I immediately went to check on my beef stew. One problem – the pot wasn’t even hot! I had set the oven for 275, but I must have turned it off somehow. It had only been cooking 30 minutes before we left. I ended up finishing it on top of the stove and we didn’t eat until 8:00!
Good News: Hannah found my cell phone!! She normally parks her car in our front yard – we have no garage, and just one long driveway. When I got out of her car last Monday, it must have fallen out of my bag – it had been in my lawn for 6 days! Thanks Hannah!
Yep – an all time high for me. I have realized that lately I haven’t written down everything I’ve eaten, had an extra handful of almonds, an extra piece of cheese, a bowl of pretzels before bed. It’s now back to basics – especially since I’ve joined Steve’s Hot 100!
So goals for this week:
- minimum 60 minutes total exercise per day
- minimum 64 ounces of water
- track all my food
- no alcohol
I am going to be getting inspiration from my friend Shelley – who just ran a 10 mile race on Saturday! Check out her recap here. I am so proud of her!
And Happy Birthday to my Dad. If he were still alive, he would have been 72 years old today! I did a tribute to his 70th birthday – you can meet him here.
Alright, my game face is on – whose with me this week?
