We are going back 36 years to throwback Thursday. My Dad was our biggest cheerleader (and my Mom too!) but because my Dad worked from home he had a flexible schedule. He came to nearly all my sporting events, and there were a lot!
Field Hockey in the fall, indoor track in the winter, outdoor track in the spring and softball in the summer. Um, I was a bit active back then.
I was a freshman in high school when this picture was taken. It was after a game and my Dad asked me to jump and he’d take a picture. Can I just say that if there was digital photography available to my Dad back then, he’d take 1000 pictures a day.
I was embarrassed at the time, but I loved my Dad, and I did what he asked. I jumped! Turns out this is one of my favorite pictures he took of me.
Time is weird. I have a hard time believing that was 36 years ago. Or that just 9 years from that picture I’d be a Mom. Or that when that picture was taken my Mom was 43 – and I am going to be 51. What?!
Hannah is going to be TWENTY SEVEN years old in March. What?! I mean, I know we look like sisters, but still. #joking
I talked about how I didn’t meal plan this week because I had food to eat. Well, while breakfast was delicious, lunch was probably the worst thing I’ve put together in a long time. It’s hard being me sometimes guys! 😀
Breakfast was delicious – steak and eggs (2), my banana muffin (4), fruit with a sprinkle of Safe + Fare sweet and salty kettle granola (1).
My instagram still isn’t work right. I must have 100 messages like this one – which makes me happy – at least I am missed! I uninstalled and reinstalled Instagram last night, updated the operating system, so hopefully that will help.
Jenn and I walked Macy’s, and found our perfect weekend sweatshirt – NOPE! It was so soft. If I bought it I might put it on on Friday night and not take it off until Sunday night. Um, who am I kidding, I meant Monday morning because I probably wouldn’t take it off.
This is the nasty ass lunch I was talking about. I made a buffalo chicken pasta with my leftover buffalo chicken dip – the first day I made it, it was amazeballs. I had turkey that I chunked into pieces and tossed in BBQ sauce for my protein and blueberries on the side. Can I just say that the cubed turkey looks like watermelon?! Gah.
Luckily I had this snack plate, so from what I ate from lunch and this plate, I had a 6 point lunch/snack.
I didn’t have to work late last night and tried to talk myself out of going to the gym. “It would be nice to just watch t.v. for a couple hours, it’s gross out, etc.” I can come up with 1000 excuses.
When I changed my clothes from work, I dressed into my workout clothes, so that would slowly get me in the right frame of mind while I made dinner.
It was an air fryer challenge – corn tortilla and one Tumaro wrap. The filling was chopped chicken, spinach, hot salsa, and two tablespoons of artichoke jalapeno dip from Trader Joe’s – so the whole filling was only 2 points – and each tortilla was one point.
I sprayed with Pam and after preheating the fryer at 400 for 5 minutes, cooked for 4 minutes a side at 380.
The verdict? Loved the corn tortillas – super crispy, delish. The tumaro wraps had a weird taste cooked – I still love them, but I’ll keep them at room temp for sammies.
When I got to the gym I did 2 miles on the treadmill at 6.0 incline. Then it was onto Day 3 of this 4 week challenge. Hardest for me? The running for 3 minutes and wall sits – but I know it will get easier.
Having once been a four season athlete, I know I can reach my goals – you see when I was on 4 sports I was always ready for the next one – didn’t takes six months (okay – or 12 months!) break of working out consistently.
Still tracking like a boss – Day 6 of tracking every lick, taste and bite. Because I had a 36 point the day before, I intentionally had a lower point day yesterday. It’s all about balance.
Did you do a sport growing up? What was it?! Hoping it was field hockey 😀
Happy Thursday friends – make it a great day and don’t eat like an asshole! Love, Biz
