I had a GREAT sleep last night! Pilate’s is so good at relaxing me that way. DD stayed for both classes last night, too and I think she sleep pretty well. Seeing as I was bright eyed and bushy tailed, I had a few extra minutes to enjoy my breakfast. And now that it’s mostly light out by 7:30, I can enjoy the great view outside to boot!
-2/3 cup water
-1/3 cup Quaker oats
The boys won again last night!! The score was 4-2. This means they advance to the finals for sure. If they win their last game on Tuesday, they get home ice advantage. DS scored again, too which I was sad to miss! I made sure to give him some knuckle and a huge hug, though.
I was feeling OK enough to go to the gym again today. I figure that as long as I feel like going, I will. I’m hoping to have enough energy to last me the rest of the week. This cold seems to be all in my nose so I don’t think I’m doing myself any harm. Before going I ate a Luna bar:
This was good! But let’s face it; could it have really been bad when it was sporting a nice layer of chocolate on it?? I think not!
I did 25 minutes on the elliptical today as well as 25 minutes of strength training. I don’t know why I have such a hard time sticking to weights. I feel like such a power house once I’ve done them.

You all know by now that you can count on me to bring leftovers for lunch, right? Ha! Today I brought some pork roast, potatoes and carrots from Saturday night’s dinner:
Num-a, num-a! Good thing I only packed what I did because I could’ve easily eaten more! Grapes rounded out my snacking for the (work) day:
I made a nice stir fry for dinner tonight. I’ve wanted to try soba noodles for ages and finally bought some over the weekend.
I made a teriyaki sauce using this recipe as I had all the ingredients on hand and it looks fairly simple to do. I did add a tbsp of honey to it. The stir fry was made using thinly sliced beef, sliced mushrooms, red & orange peppers, and an onion.
Make sure to keep up to date with Krista’s Kravings over the next few days for a detailed review on that! Dessert was a double chocolate biscotti:
I bought a box of these bad boys at Costco and they’re great! Crisp, yet light. They come individually wrapped, too which is nice.
I just got back from the pool with the kids. Tonight was the last night of lessons for this session so Wednesday’s will now be free for a month. And both the kids passed their levels which they were excited about. I’m gonna watch Criminal Minds now and then hit the sack.
Bye for now!!
