Since I only cooked half of my cube steak for dinner the night before last, I decided to chop it up and add it to my morning hash – 4 ounces potato, 3 ounces cube steak, baby spinach, 1/2 cup egg whites and 1/2 ounce of cheese. I only cooked the steak half way at home though so when I warmed it up at work it didn’t get too tough – worked perfect!
Another stunning day in Chicagoland – I can’t even remember the last time I ran outside, in January, in a t-shirt! Some of you saw this photo I posted on facebook (that I actually uploaded from my blackberry – getting so techno!). After looking at it posting it here, it kinda looks like I am hailing a taxi!
I ended up doing a 5 minute walking warm-up and then decided to push the first 1.5 miles – and ended up doing it in 16 minutes! The second half of the 1.5 miles was my normal walk to a song, run to a song – finished in 36 minutes and then did a 5 minute cool down walk back to my office.
I passed by a semi-frozen pond behind one of the subdivisions – it was cute because it looked like one goose was walking slowly seeing how far he could walk on the ice while about a dozen geese watched him.
When I got back work just got super busy – you didn’t miss much of my lunch, it was a turkey sandwich on the healthy life bread and a cup of my thai butternut squash soup.
I ended up working until 12:15 a.m. last night – which I hate to do on a Friday night. 🙁 Especially when I should be hanging out with Tony at home.
I only had a 240 calorie lean cuisine for dinner around 7:30, and when I called Tony to tell him I was coming home he asked if I was hungry and I said I was a bit peckish. I came home to a lovely plate of shrimp cocktail, a little bit of cheese and crackers and some pickles – perfect! Thanks honey!
I set my alarm to get up for the WW meeting, turned it off thinking I’d get up in a minute, and ended up missing my meeting completely. I did discover that my one scale was exactly what the WW scale was last week – 164 pounds on my scale last week was exactly what was on the WW scale.
So the moment you’ve all been waiting for, right?
-1.4! I’ll take it. I’ll be back in the 150’s before I know it!
I still have operation closet today – I never finished that project from New Year’s weekend. Other than that, we don’t have much planned. What are you up to this weekend?
Have a great Saturday!
