Okay, remember the part about me not sleeping in recently?  Well, I went to bed at 11:15 last night – a mere 15 minutes later than usual for me.  I woke up wide awake at 7:15.  I stayed up for about 20 minutes, checked out Facebook, Tony was still sleeping so I thought “why not go back to bed another hour and then get up and take an hour walk around the neighborhood?”  Well I woke up at 10:45!  Yowza!  Must have needed the sleep I guess!

You wouldn’t know it was July by our weather, but I am not complaining one bit.  If I could find a place to live where it was in the 50s in the morning and only got to the mid 70s during the day, I would move there in a heartbeat!

Breakfast yesterday was another egg white McMuffin – this time with spinach and havarti jalapeno cheese.  I need to buy more blueberries this weekend, these were so sweet they tasted like candy!

When I left for the gym it was a perfect 72 degrees.

On tap for strength was shoulders.  Holy balls, another tough workout.  I almost wanted to cut each set short, but I didn’t.  I did everything until it got to the car drivers.  Do you know what those are?  You take a 25 pound plate that goes on a barbell and you hold it straight out in front of you and you turn the plate like it’s a steering wheel for 30 seconds at a time, for 3 sets.  Um, no way in hell after finishing the rest of the workout was I using a 25 pound weight – I did it with 10 pounds yet I still felt it!  I got several emails in the past couple days asking what program I am doing – I am just finishing up week 4 of 12 weeks of free workouts.  Check out Bite Size Army and sign up for free and get all the workouts and her nutrition.   Once you sign up, go to “Lastest Posts” and you’ll have the first four weeks of workouts.

I am realizing that I haven’t been keeping up with the ab routines – they are supposed to be done a minimum of 2 times a week – I need to step that up next week.  I ended the workout with a 1.25 mile run.

And it was even more gorgeous on my way back to the office – I was so close to ditching the afternoon at work, but I am a responsible adult, so I begrudgingly went back.  Isn’t that a great word ; begrudgingly?! Ha!

I ended up having more lasagna soup – delish!

I had a couple ideas for dinner – fish stick tacos, grilled chicken caesar salad, chicken fried rice, but when Tony said “how about ordering a pizza” you know I never turn down pizza!  Sausage, pepperoni and bacon – perfection!

Since I was doing arms for strength, I didn’t get in all my steps, but not too bad!

We don’t really have a whole lot planned for this weekend – my first weekend not working at the restaurant since December – woop!   I have a couple projects I’d like to get done – clean the back part of our basement – it tends to be a dumping ground for things that don’t really have a home, and I am confident I can throw half of the shit away.  My desk needs a makeover again too.  I also hope to see Hannah tomorrow if she doesn’t have to work – I miss her face!  It’s not the same seeing her on Facetime. 

I am taking a blogging break, but I’ll be back on Monday.  I hope you all have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!  Hugs!
