The scale showed me some love this morning.
For breakfast, I ate oatmeal with sliced peaches and skim milk. The very last of the Missouri peaches. *sniffles*
Until next year!
While working, I sipped on a Caramel Macchiato iced latte with skim.
I got off of work early again today. Yay!
My knees were finally feeling good today, so I got to try out the elliptical for the first time. I did 30 minutes. The distance said 1315 and I have no idea what that means and cannot find a manual online. It was a good workout though!
The elliptical doesn’t have a place to put magazines, which kind of sucks, but for $25, I can deal. So I tried to rig up my own creation to hold a magazine on. Didn’t work the greatest, but it sort of worked!
Yep, a DIY magazine rack for an elliptical. Involving ribbon…lol I don’t really recommend it.
For lunch, I ate a turkey brat on light bread with PB and ketchup.
I also had a salad made with lettuce, strawberries, blueberries, and almonds topped with poppy seed dressing.
I was still hungry, so I ate an apple with PB.
And then I got to work on job #2. I got a good amount of work done, and decided I might as well spend some more time at the pool!
On the way there, I stopped at the library. They have a book sale going on, so I bought a book about how to make small talk. Hey, I need help. lol. I read that at the pool for a while.
I swam during the adult swim for 10 minutes. Wow, that’s a good workout!
And then I dried off in the sun and sipped on a slushee..
A nice, cool treat on a warm day.
I love getting off work early because that means I get more time for ME!
When I got home, I got supper prepared and in the oven and did some house work.
For supper, I ate chicken and rice (with brown rice), steamed broccoli, garden fresh tomatoes, and homemade refrigerator pickles.
The chicken and rice wasn’t as delicious as when my Mom used to make it. She must have a secret ingredient!
For dessert, I experimented and made some vanilla cheesecake cups.
Another good day on the books!
I’m starting to get my life balance back and it feels good. My priorities are back in line and I feel more at peace again. Ahhh… a good feeling.
