Happy Friday, ya’ll! We’ve finally reached the weekend again. It’s been a longggggggg week, so tonight’s R & R session will be highly enjoyed! I teach a 5:40 pm Jazzercise class right after work, and then I have no plans! WOOHOOO!! Between teaching double classes each night and 1 long run this week, this girl is just about spent. I can’t wait to sit on my couch and watch the Cardinals baseball game! Nick thinks we need to go watch this game in a sports bar. But I think it would be much more enjoyable viewed from my couch in my snuggie. 🙂
So to explain the post title, is it just me, or do you have days where you feel awesome, light as air, and your pants slide on perfectly? And then there are days where you feel fat, frumpy, and you can barely get your pants buttoned?? Yup, the latter option is me today. I’m not feeling so hot. I feel like I gained 10 lbs. in my tummy overnight. I think I had too much dairy yesterday, and I’m paying for it today. UGH.
My lactose intolerance has been haunting me this week. I’ve had an upset stomach at least once a day from even the smallest amount of dairy. My stomach and I are not really friends right now, to say the least. So this weekend needs to be extra light in the yogurt and cheese department.
Does it help you to write things out when you know you have a lot you would like to accomplish in a short amount of time? Well it helps me. A lot.
This weekend is going to be a busy (but fun!) one I hope. Starting tomorrow morning, I have to…
- Drop off my car at the dealership to be serviced at 8 AM
- Teach a 9:15 Jazzercise class
- Get my license renewed…cause my bday is a comin’!
- Fit in a long run (shooting for 8-10 miles!)
- Attend the wine fest that is happening downtown (2-5 pm I think??)
- Attend my friend Mel’s Halloween party (starts at 7!)
Now only time will tell if I can get all that done. At least the last 2 things are purely for fun, so if I’m not feeling up to it, I can spend the rest of my day at home with Mac! And speaking of Mac, he got a very pretty haircut yesterday…
He can finally see without the hair sticking into his eyeballs!
Poor little guy had some crazy facial hair going on. All better now!
Lunch today was easy since I threw together a nice salad last night.
Lots o’ radishes! Yum! There is some dark green romaine in there somewhere…I promise. I then finished off a teeny tiny bowl of the leftover chili from last Sunday. I’m sad that it’s all gone now! But luckily I had an order from Vitacost waiting at my door for me that had something yummy to help finish off my noon meal.
Granola! This stuff was on sale, so I though I would give it a try. It’s all natural and extra delicious. My favorite part of the package?? The fact that it says ‘No Fat Added’… because I definitely am worded about lotsa fat being added to my granola…haha. Not the first thing that pops into my head when I think about the nutrition facts of granola, but hey, no added fat is a good thing!
I ate way too many handfuls of this stuff once I finished off my lunch of salad and chili. Oh well…it was delicious, and I’ll work off the extra carbs at Jazzercise tonight!
I hope you have had a great Friday so far! It’s almost 5, so if you’re working the day away, keep your chin up! Almost there! I’ll see you all tomorrow – hopefully I can report that I got most of my ‘to do’ list done.
Have a wonderful evening/weekend!
