Happy Election Day! I hope you got out there and cast your vote!
I always wondered why I go to bed super early in the winter time. Well, I think I figured it out. My internal clock doesn’t change with the time change! I was falling asleep at about 7:30 last night! The good news is that I get a good night’s sleep this way.
For breakfast, I made an egg sandwich and also had a glass of skim milk and a banana.
While working, I sipped on my coffee with creamer.
I actually only worked for a couple of hours and then my co-worker came in to work a couple of hours of my shift for me so I could cover an event for job #2.
So I headed out at 8:00 and had just enough time to vote before the event. This was my third election to vote in. I’ve voted every election since I turned 18. Unfortunately, they never give the “I Voted” stickers here!
The event was a BMX stunt show. That was pretty amazing!Wow!
And then I had to race back home and get back to work for job #1.
While working, I snacked on a gouda cheese stick from Aldi. You MUST try these out. They are so good and only 2 points plus.
After I finished working my scheduled hours, I headed back to the polls to do some work for job #2.
And then I came home and ate lunch. I made a BBQ salad with feta, pecans, and tomatoes.
I also had a side of squash.
I finished it up with an apple and peanut butter because I was still hungry for some reason!
I think it was because I was tired more than anything, but I wanted some chocolate. So I ate two of these.
And then I decided the best thing to do would be drink some coffee to get my energy level back up.
I worked for job #2 and got quite a bit done. The coffee just wasn’t doing it for me today! I was so tired and not sure why!
I convinced myself to do Workout A, which was a ladders strength workout. It took me 25 minutes and I burned 126 calories. The first couple of sets were easy but by the time I was doing 10 reps, my muscles were shaking! I think the tricep bench dips were the hardest for me. Part of it is due to the cyst I have on my wrist. My wrist starts hurting after doing things like this or push ups.
After that was done, I completed Intervals A. This workout incorporated 30 second intervals. I finished out 1.5 miles and it took me 22:38. I burned 240 calories. Overall, that was a nice short workout but the 30 second intervals had me looking at the timer constantly and I couldn’t let my mind wander too much.
As much as I didn’t want to, I’m glad I fit that workout in. I felt a lot better when I was done.
After that was done, I had to sign back in for job #1 to work some hours for the co-worker that worked hours for me in the morning.
I actually didn’t have to work that long since we were slow, so that was nice!
For supper, I baked Blue Hake and also had low fat cottage cheese, green beans, and a slice of homemade yogurt corn bread topped with butter and honey.
Delish! I have 5 points left for the day.
Did anyone else notice this on WW today?
Oh dear, last time I saw something like this they started Points Plus. I wonder what it is this time?
