About Me

Hampton Roads, Virginia, United States
I am a late-30's busy career mom, attempting to find her inner athlete, be a vegan in a non-vegan household, and find a way to balance it all without going crazy! I love to cook, read, run, knit, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.

My Upper Body is Going to Be Sore Tomorrow...I Hope!

Second day back on days, and I slept like poo.  I don't mind working nights, but I hate the flipping of the schedules.  I imagine it's like intense jet lag.


We slept in until about 930 this morning.  Probably all would have slept much later if not for the doggies wanting their breakfast.


D ran out to Dunkin Donuts for him and the kids (I did not partake!).  I did a killer upper body workout of pullups and pushups for an hour right after waking.  Felt very proud of that actually.  The only thing I didn't plan well was the whole eating thing.  Since D and I had plans to have lunch and go to a mantinee, I didn't eat breakfast.  By the time I got done working out, it was getting too late to eat anything and NOT ruin my lunch.  Next time, I'll splurge on a smoothie or some chocolate soy milk or something.


We went to lunch - and I had a lovely bowl of split pea and barley soup and a salad of grilled vegetables.  Very filling and yummy - and I didn't feel remotely guilty about any of it.


What I did feel guilty about is skipping the movie.  I was just so tired, and didn't want to wander around the mall another hour before our flick even started.  SO...our Sunday date got cut short, we went home - and I lied down for about 15 minutes while D went and bought yet another new video game.


Dinner was fun.  For D and the kids I made homemade meatballs, beer bread, grilled chicken parm, and spaghetti.  For me???  Leftover tofu and brown basmati from yesterday.  Ah well, at least the red wine is good!


Exercise - B+
Eating - B+
