Hello everyone. I did not intend my blog yesterday to sound negative I just found myself thinking how life is less than ideal and what to do in those situations. I have been thinking about how to set yourself up for success and be realistic at the same time. For example several weeks ago hubby and I were grocery shopping and I wanted to buy a bag of chicken tenders and hubby wanted to buy a whole chicken cuz it was a better deal...but I pointed out that I had just started a new job and we should be realistic about me working and having time to make dinner. Cooking a whole chicken during the week when you work until 6:30 is not realistic.
It's been a long busy week, one of my co-workers is having back problems so I have been doing several 10 hr days and doing the work of two, but I'm a team player and I'm not complaining. I have been hauling my butt out of bed at 5:30 this week to do 20 min of zumba before breakfast. It has been super hard for me to get up and do it, I am not a morning person. I usually get up at 6 and work at 10 and I have plenty of time to exercise and get ready on my normal schedule. I have been doing the zumba 20 min express and I also have the cardio party. That's all of zumba I have done, but I like it and I'm gonna try to stick with it.
Breakfast: egg sandwich with pepper jack on 2 slices Ezekiel 4:9 bread, black coffee
Morning snack: 1/4c oatmeal 1/4c blueberries handful walnuts, black coffee
Lunch: stir-fry with garlic and fresh basil, summer squash, zuc, mushrooms, asparagus, chicken. Mini green olives and 1 square ghiradelli chocolate with peanut butter on top. lots of water during the day
Afternoon snack: worked late and was hungry 4 saltines with tiny peanut butter and tiny nutella
Dinner: hubby made us dinner :) thin pork chops asparagus and potato wedges with sour cream
