It was one of my bosses birthdays over the weekend, but she wasn’t in the office until yesterday.  Did you know that Panera has a Tuesday special on bagels?  $6.99 for 13 bagels!   I ended up having a picky plate breakfast – 1/2 an oat bran bagel with a shmear of 5 calorie “butter” grapes, a hard boiled egg with hot sauce, thank you very much, and 1.5 ounces of diced deli ham.

This was surprisingly  filling for only 307 calories!  Had a leg workout that I knew was going to be tough just by looking at it.  Holy balls was I right – this leg workout took me 40 minutes to complete!

  • Barbell step up – 10 reps x 3 sets
  • Single Leg Smith Machine leg press 10 reps x 4 sets
  • Single Leg Cable Side Leg Raise 15 reps x 4 sets
  • Cable squat 15 reps x 3 sets
  • Seated Leg Curl 10 reps x 5 sets
  • Sumo Squats with Arm Raise 10 reps x 4 sets
  • Stationary Side Lunge 10 reps x 4 sets

Here is a video that has some of the exercises in it.   The exercises that I made red are new to me!  The hardest and longest exercise for me?  The side cable leg raise – that was 15 reps ON EACH leg times 4 sets!  After each set I had to stretch because my side muscles (whatever those are called!) were screaming at me.  Needless to say, my legs are a bit sore today – back exercises are on the menu today.  Since my strength took me so long, I literally only got 5 minutes on the treadmill before I had to head back to the office.  Again Kym, had most of the gym to myself.

I ended up bringing the leftover pasta from the night before – whole wheat pasta mixed with baby spinach and topped with broccoli tomato sauce.  I realized this had no protein to speak of, but luckily I ate lunch at almost 2:30 so it kept me full until dinner.

I had to stop by Walgreen’s and pick up my insulin prescription.  Remember the link I mentioned yesterday for the free trial offer for FIVE insulin pens from the manufacturer?   Well, I thought it might not work once they saw that I did have insurance, but it totally went through.  Not sure if my insurance was billed or not, but we’ll see – all I know is that it saved me $580 bucks and I paid zero dollars! #winning

I saw this glass on an end cap that had stuff on sale.  I almost bought it, but realized I have way too many cups at home.

Over the weekend when Tony and I went to The Fresh Market, we picked up two ahi tuna steaks – a bit of a splurge at $11 for both, but totally worth it.  I have this soy sesame sauce, while high in sodium, a little goes a long way.  I literally just brushed each side of the tuna in the soy sesame sauce and then rolled the sides of the tuna in this sesame mixture.

I served mine with zucchini and 3/4 cup cooked white rice.  I may have added some sriracha to mine.  Although I wish I would have taken the picture before adding the sriracha – it kinda looks like ketchup to me in this picture!

I didn’t realize how close I was to my 10,000 step goal!  Just missed it.

This morning I woke up and both my eyes were crusted shut – gross – hope you aren’t enjoying your breakfast right now with that visual! Open-mouthed smile

My eye doctor opens at 9 so I am going to try to get in there this morning – I texted my boss and the two other secretaries to let them know, and my boss thinks its pink eye, but my eyes don’t itch and I thought pink eye made your eyes itch like crazy.  So I am sporting my eye glasses at the moment, that are approximately 14 years old – sexy!  I put eye drops in my eyes so the redness went away, but my eyes are super sore when I touch them for some reason.

Probably because I was crying during the Little Couple last night.  Bill surprised his wife Jen with a vow renewal and had 50 family and friends fly in and surprise Jen.  I am a sucker for little people AND weddings!

When Jen saw her Aunt Barbara who hadn’t flown on a plane in 38 years, but did to get to the wedding, I lost it!  Tony just shakes his head at me sometimes!

I have time to squeeze in a walk since I have to wait to call the eye doctor at 9.  Gotta get those steps in!  Make it a great day!
