Today wasn't anything spectactular per-say but it was still a really nice day. I started it out by getting up early this morning to work. Then it was off to the gym for my core/pump class. Then it was off to the grocery story for a few things, home to clean house, take a shower and then over to my mom's to have dinner with her and my grandma, who made me my FAVORITE food for dinner. I don't know what it's called....some kind of chicken casserole but its sooooooooo good! She also made me a WONDERFUL pear cake with carmel sauce as my b-day cake. YUM!!!
After that I opened my gifts which were ALL wonderful! Since my mom had gotten me a HRM, Matt and I decided to return it while my mom kept the kids. I ended up trading it in for a pair of Asics tennis shoes. They were the most elaborate, expensive shoes in the whole store so I hope I LOVE them. They felt heavenly on my feet in the store. I have 30 days to return them as long as I don't wear them outside, which for that price, they may never see the outdoors! Ha ha....
No really, I have to say...they actually rang up quite a bit cheaper than the tag said so I was pleasantly surprised and once I made sure there wasn't an error, I thanked my Heavenly Father for the wonderful Blessing!
As for eating today...well, for "splurging" I think I actually did really good. I would have liked to eaten more...and tonight (right now) I'd REALLY like to eat something, but I refuse.
Breakfast: 1 1/2 c. Life cereal, skim milk.
Lunch: 2 slices Mazzios Lucky 7 thin crust pizza.
Snack: Homemade chocolate chip cookie
Dinner: Chicken casserole (chicken, celery, water chestnuts, almonds, french fried onions, cheddar cheese, sour cream and mayo) with small spoon of corn and 1 bisquit.
Dessert: Slice of Pear cake (made from scratch) with carmel sauce.
By the way, I wore my HRM to the gym today---BUT I forgot to start it until the class was half over. But...for the 30 min. that I did clock it..I burned 320 cal. (which would be 640 cal/hr--not too bad).
