Thursday Things

  • We leave the day after tomorrow for England.  We haven’t even brought the suitcase upstairs yet.  GUESS WHAT I AM DOING TONIGHT?
  • I’m planning on working out on my lunch break so that I can be devoted to packing when I get home.  This should be relatively easy seeing as though normally I work through my lunch break, giving my job that extra free hour of mine that I should have for myself in some capacity.  So today I will go to my office’s gym and sweat for like 35 minutes – I’m hoping an elliptical or some other cross training machine is open, because if it’s the treadmill I will get bored from walking with in like 2 minutes.  I also look weird on an elliptical because my feet always shoot up with not much grace.  I’m not a graceful elliptical-er.
  • Yesterday’s run should have been 4 miles, but I was on the treadmill and tired from not sleeping so I crawled (10’48” pace) the 3.33 miles and then decided I was done.  This weather needs to stay cool so I can go outside. Stupid indian summer or humidity or whatever.
  • I slept wrong – AGAIN – last night on my back.  I actually slept on my back but with my arm in a weird position over my head, so everything is screaming (which is another thing.  I don’t want to only do weights, because well I am afraid to lift anything heavy at this point.  After vacay = whatever.  Before vacay = Must be careful.).
  • We didn’t have enough iced coffee this morning for both TPWSNBN and I, so being the good wife that I am, I took it.  No I’m kidding.  I gave it to him and I grabbed a Sugar Free Rockstar Energy Drink.
  • I also grabbed an apple, banana, and a bag of frozen grapes to enjoy today.  I already ate the grapes with my English Muffin Breakfast and man I am satisfied (never thought I would say this after a healthy meal, but here we are.).
  • Did anyone watch the debate?  I thought there were good and bad moments to both sides.  But I also think the moderator lost control of the event within 5 seconds.


  • Breakfast: English Muffin w/ PB, Rockstar Energy
  • Snack: Frozen Grapes
  • Lunch: Open faced turkey, hummus, spinach, and provolone sandwich, yogurt, carrots
  • Snack: Apple & Banana
  • Dinner: Steak Waldorf salad
  • Activity: Cross training 35-40 minutes

Let’s hope I can nab DAY 3 of 100% Tracking and staying with in points.  Last night was hard because we stayed in, but I can do this.  I can make this work.  I will make this work.  I’ve already made it work a million times (well like 40 pounds) before.  I can keep going.


p.s. Anyone got any tried and true stretches for shoulders and back?
