Weekend Recap: Laziness

This weekend was super lazy.  I had a long list of chores around the house that needed to get done.  Sadly, I didn’t cross very much off my list.  I did the usual laundry, vaccuming, kitchen cleaning, but I ignored the bathrooms, my closet, and other projects I’ve been meaning to get to for a while now.

What did we do instead?  We ate!  Well, not really, but that’s all I took pictures of.  lol

Mmmm… pork chops!


Saturday morning omelet

Low carb wrap with leftover omelet

Low carb wrap with sauteed zucchini and cheese


I did make my 7-year old help me with the chores …  and he did (with MUCH grumbling) …

And my 2-year old did Plyo with us on Sunday!  🙂  (Not really, but she loves stomping around the room like she’s participating too).

And of course there was a sunset pic!

I was not ready for this weekend to end.  It was way too short, even though we did gain an hour.  We also lost a lot of daylight on Sunday and that’s no fun.  This is my least favorite time of the year.  I saw one of those ecards that said “Goodbye Daylight Savings Time, Hello Seasonal Depression Disorder.”  Ha!  That’s exactly how I feel.

Question of the Day:  How do you deal with the dark and the cold of winter?

WIAW – 8/1/12

Time for another installment of ‘What I Ate Wednesday’.

But I warn you, it’s not great. Nor recommended.

Before I even had time to eat breakfast, I was out the door pushing the stroller around the neighborhood.  We covered 3 hilly miles.


When I got back to the house I was starving. So I counted out 14 almonds (1/2 serving) before pressing play on P90X Plyometrics.


My daughter even did part of the video with me!


(Ignore the dark picture and the toy-filled room).  🙂

For lunch, I couldn’t resist my famous low-carb veggie wrap. Have you tried these Flat Outs yet??  They are really good!  Only 100 calories and 9 net carbs.


We had some veggies leftover from the chicken fajitas we ordered the night before at Chili’s.  (Yeah, let’s don’t talk about my carb overload that day)!


I added spinach, jalapenos and hot sauce, of course!

I didn’t snap a picture of dinner because, well, I am embarrassed to say – I didn’t eat dinner last night. I know, I know – that’s not smart. It’s just that I had a hair appt that took longer than expected. I didn’t get home til after 8:30 and at that point, I just wasn’t hungry anymore.
I’m sure I’ll make up for it tomorrow!

Hump Day Plans


I don’t know about you, but I’m in need of a little motivation this morning.  I’m off from work this week.  The plan was to have a killer workout every day.  So far, I’m 0 for 3.  Yep, that’s right – I haven’t worked out in 3 days.  I wish I could say it’s because I was busy or doing other things.  Nope, I was just being lazy.  And still not out of my funk either.  But I’m going to try to turn it all around today.


I found these quotes on Pinterest this morning.  I hope they have inspired you as much as they inspired me.  So with that, I’m walking out the door to take my daughter for a walk around the neighborhood.  It’s just too pretty not to.  When we return, I’m pressing ‘play’ on the Plyometrics DVD from P90X.  Bring It!!

Hope you have a Happy Hump Day!!  🙂

Day 2 – Plyo

Holy. Crap.
What can I say?  Yeah, it was hard.
I got my heart rate up in my zone.


(It’s back down now, thankgoodness).

I’m looking forward to the day it gets easier. I’ll admit – I pressed pause twice. But only for a minute each time. Oh, and there was a moment when I accidentally knocked the 2 year old down while doing the towel runs. Lol. Don’t worry – she was fine.
So I am happy to report Day 2 is done. Only 88 more days to go.  😉
