First Saturday Night Off Since NAM! To Cut or NOT to Cut?
Posted Jan 11 2009 5:32pm
Wow, it's so nice to have a Saturday evening to relax. I had kickboxing this morning burned something like 700 calories, then played coed softball (don't think I burned too many there). I had to kill time in between both activities so I got my morning snack/lunch at Jamba Juice. I got an all natural Pomegranate smoothie with some weigh protein and energy. They also had Z bars there so I got one too because I have been wanting to try them ever since I heard of Caitlin’s addiction..lol Good thing I did grab one because the smoothie did not hold me over. I tried the Z Bar and loved it!!! Will have to try more flavors:)
When I got home from the softball game I was starved! So I had some Greek yogurt mixed with honey, pumpkin, and granola. It was yummy, still getting used to Greek yogurt it reminds me of sour cream. After my snack I was still starving so I had a few peanuts and a handful of Pirate Booty. I was super hungry today, I don’t think I was consuming enough calories.
After the snack I had to get out of the house before I ate everything in site! I ran to Fresh and Easy and picked up a few goodies for dinner tonight, then came home and put on my cleaning gloves. I just can't start cooking until the kitchen is clean, it's the OCD in me I guess.
I dusted off the crock pot and decided to make a warm and comforting supper since I was actually going to be home tonight to cook with NO plans. It's been a while since Hubby and I have had a Saturday night alone, too long! For dinner I just did what I do best throw everything in the pot! Chicken, potatoes, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, onions, carrots, and some green beans. I can't throw in too much though remember Hubby is a picky eater. We will enjoy it on top of some fresh baked sourdough bread (started it late so were having a late dinner). I would love to have a glass of Cab with it, but I have the Tri in the morning so no wine for me.
I haven't thought about the Tri too much until today. I think I will do fine, it's just so weird to have not run all week and then I am going to race tomorrow! Of course I still exercised just didn’t run. I will set out my cloths tonight as tradition of course, but it's a whole different set of cloths. I haven't gone out and really got anything to actually do a Tri in yet. I am just going to wear my bike skirt, a tank top and my running shoes. No Ipod, sad day I think I will survive the three miles with out music, but it will be hard. I am barrowing my Moms super light mountain bike that I put road tires on (still saving up for my own). I will just throw off my shirt and swim in my sports bra and my shorts that I’ll wear under my biking skirt. I know two pairs of shorts, its better then a sore ars!
I don't have to wake up too early tomorrow the race starts at 8am way later then any other race I have done in the past. I might even have time to eat breakfast; probably won't just a small snack.
Well I am going to enjoy my restful evening with hubby watching some baseball of course:) Have a great end of the weekend, will post tomorrow night about the race!
Woke up this morning with a food hangover:( Last night was ladies Bunco, a blast but too much of a good thing sometimes hurts the tummy. I will be going to kickboxing this morning to work it all off! We had a spread of soup and salad, a relief because I was afraid I was going to be choosing from lots of casserole dishes. They had lots of different salads and I went with a strawberry fields salad, and a bowl of corn chowder to start with. I wanted to try all the soups, because they all looked so Delicious. I wish they would have had little shot glasses so we could taste them all! :) The corn chowder wasn't my favorite so I went back and got a bowl of the taco soup, much better. To drink I had some sugar free cider, it completed my meal. We also had some delightful dessert bites, and for "some reason"I was craving me some sweets. This is where I went overboard. I also went to Oak Glen yesterday with my class. We did a little tour of Riley's Farm, and picked some pears. The children loved it! They heard stories of old and got to play with old games that the children would play on the farm. Not as interactive as we would have liked but we got out of the classroom. When we got back I went on my break to the bank and had a little accident. I was pulling out of this teeny tiny parking lot that the bank has, and another car was pulling out at the same time, we ran right into each other. AWWWW! It was an accident on both our parts, I have never been in any type of accident and either had he so we had no idea what to do. So we exchange info, no damage to my car, and he went on his way. This is never a good thing to happen on a Friday or on my break. Nevertheless I decided that it wouldn't routine my day. Well apparently I was wearing it on my face, because as the children were getting picked up from school the parents were saying that the field trip wiped me out too. I hate when I already feel pooped, I have someone remind me of it...lol... I almost didn't go to Bunco night, because I was so tired from the day, from the week. I used every piece of energy I had, pulled myself together and went. Bunco/Silent Auction night was fun. Besides just having dinner and playing bunco we had a silent auction. I walked around placing my bids, a little worried I might have bid on too much. But at the end I ended up spending as much as I wanted and got; jewelry,picture frames,gift certificate to a hair salon(almost got out bid a couple times),an aromatherapy basket, and more! It was a successful evening.
So I have this delima I want to chop off my hair but I am worried that I am going to hate it. I love my long hair but it's driving me crazy. Hubby does not want change, he loves it but he said he knows he will like it either way. I have such an active lifestyle that it makes more sense to have a manageable haircut, and I also just want something different. I have had my hair short when I was a freshman in college, and I loved it but I was 20lbs heavier so it made my face look chubby. I think it would look better now. I know there is a lot of maintenance to be done with short hair but I am ready for the challenge here are a few cuts I am thinking about, what do you think?
This girl was at the farm yesterday, I loved her hair and asked if I could take a pic..lol.hope she won't mind I posting it.
My Long Hair NOW!
I will be playing softball, running around town, and taking my lil' bro to homecoming tonight awww:) Then resting I have a sprint TRI tomorrow, I am kinda nerviouse because I haven't run ALL week, just kickboxing and buso ball...well wish me luck:)
