Howdy readers! The weekend is finally upon us after what seems like the longest week ever. Yesterday was super long so I was very thankful that Mister S has a PS3 to keep him entertained. I caught a few episodes of Sons of Anarchy and called it a night! Which of course means I did not work out yesterday. I simply didn’t have the energy or desire to do it!
This morning I woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed with Lady S and started our day off really well. My laziness led to not having any vanilla yogurt in my house! One of my favorite breakfasts is Greek yogurt and granola! I settled for a bagel and regular yogurt instead. I hopped to it this morning, completing a minute sculpting workout from the wonderful Melissa Bender. Lady S felt the need to workout with this morning and has been running around all day saying “Good Morning! I am Melissa Bender”. Pure comedy that she thinks that jumping up and down is the equivalent to completing a burpee with a pushup. Only if it was that simple!
I will say that I have been focusing less on pounds lost and more on muscles gained. I am still on my regiment of working out no less than 4 days a week but I haven’t been tracking my calories as religiously as I used to. I can tell you when I have eaten way too much food in one day. As a matter of fact, my ankles tend to tell the truth. I talked about my veinous reflux disease in my legs and the surgery I had back in February to fix it. Although my legs are nowhere close to what they used to be, my body is still quite sensitive to salt. If I eat too much of it then my ankles will swell. Bring on the water to flush all that salt out. I still log my workouts every now and then on MFP but not as much as I used to. Like I have said before, getting healthy is less about temporary changes and more about lifestyle changes.
So that brings me to cooking….Oh I have been slack. Thank Goodness that Mister S is a master in the kitchen. *hanging my head low* I have not been menu planning either. I am back on it starting Monday considering our freezer is well stocked with ridiculous stuff from Whole Foods and Aldi.
I am off to figure out what we’ll eat tonight and what we’ll have for next week!
Until next time!
