Yesterday afternoon I went for a manicure and pedicure. It was GLORIOUS. Normally when I get both, they want to do the manicure while I am getting my pedicure. I hate that. Listen, I am here to relax, read my magazine and drink my coffee while I am being pampered and taken care of. So I asked for them to be done separately. She looked at me like I was crazy. No hurry here my friend, and there is no one else in this salon, so you aren’t in a hurry either.
Ahhhh, bliss. I feel like a lady again!
Yes, I realize I have Flintstone toes….it’s ok, God blessed me in other areas.
When I got home from my girl-time I was greeted by this:
This would be the work of my ever nurturing little 5 yr. old. There are rollie pollies, a beetle, a worm, a caterpillar and of course a butterfly in there. As well as clumps of dirt and grass. There are no words.
Coffee and my oats
I ran on the treadmill for 45 min. It felt really good again. I would have done an hour but I wanted to get some strength training in for my arms.
0-5 4.3 warm-up
20-25 4.3 walk
40-45 4.3 cool down, slowing every one min.
I worked my arms by doing the shoulder part of my upper body workout, 3 sets of 12 dumbbell curls w/ 10lb weights, 50 bench dips and 10 full push-ups.
Tuna Fish Salad on a Thomas Whole Wheat Bagel Thin, a Cara Cara orange (that I had to eat over the sink because it was so juicy!) and almonds.
After my pedicure I went to World Market because they were having a buy one coffee get one free sale. While I was there I got these.
My oh my, these were delicious. I am not doing very well on my “sweets detox”.
“They” say that 1 oz. of dark chocolate per day is good for your heart and has antioxidants to help ward off cancer. So I think I get a pass on these!
Salad with two handfuls of mixed greens, blueberries, strawberries, almonds, peanuts, peas, baby carrots and fat-free raspberry vinaigrette. Leftover tuna fish from lunch on a bagel thin and a Fuji apple.
A few hours after dinner I had some Dannon Greek Yogurt with granola on top.
I am so proud of myself for getting in bed at a decent hour the past few days. I’ve been asleep by 9 at the latest. But last night, I was up every two hours for various reasons. Bathroom, a scared kid, stuffy nose, insomnia. Blerg. It was super hard to get up this morning, but I am feeling awake now after the magic of coffee!
I loved this:
