Yep, just finished another workout. After all, it is Friday, you know. I said I would, and I did. As I was stretching prior to lifting my weights, a random thought popped into my head. (It happens all the time, so I wasn't caught off guard by it.) To add to my daily "walkabout" why don't I strap on my old leg weights and move around with those on? So now, immediately after I finish reading all of the blogs and take my shower, I'm gonna hunt those babies down and strap 'em on. Should add just a little something extra everyday. Won't have them on constantly, but enough to get a few extra reps for my legs.
Yesterday was a much better day for me, eating-wise. I made a breakfast pizza on a corn tortilla with some Morningstar Farms sausage crumbles. I splurged a bit, and bought some "squeeze" pizza sauce. Since it was only 30 cal. I didn't think that would bread the bank. Added some fresh basil and a sprinkle of Parmesan then topped it with fat-free mozzarella. Didn't bake it, I broiled it, as a change of pace. It was lovely. In changing my breakfast habits, I've discovered a few things about myself. First, I'm not a morning person, so breakfast isn't a big deal for me. (It is becoming more important now, tho'.) Second, I don't really like routines, but now know that having one helps me in the long run. Third, timing is everything. So, using these three things I've learned, I've developed a pattern that is working for me, AND has almost entirely eliminated the 3:00 hunger for sweet treats!! I get up as usual and have my one can of diet coke. Read the paper. Get ready for my workout or cardio, whichever day it is. Write in my blog & read all the blogs. Get cleaned up. THEN make breakfast. It is now about 9:45 or 10. That carries me until lunch, which I now like to have around 1:15-1:30. My 3:00 snack, if I have one is my 100 cal. popcorn. We don't normally eat dinner until 6:30-7:00, so I begin prep at about 5:45, earlier or later, depending on the complexity of what I'm making. Then, if I am going to treat myself to a Skinny Cow (or another sweet) I do it before 8:00. After 8, I'm done eating, but still drinking water. So far, this is working for me, so I hesitate to change it since it ain't broke.
We are finally getting a break in the rain!! Tonight, tomorrow after golf, and Sun. after church & golf, we are going to get those 3 trees I've been lugging in and out of the garage planted!! Hurray!! I really hope the ground isn't so wet we have trouble digging. Hubby Dearest isn't looking forward to digging holes this big, but he wanted to do it rather than pay $150 per tree (the same as the tree cost) to deliver and plant them. The trees are only about 5' high and in 10 gal. buckets. We should easily be able to do this, right? Yeah, that's what we thought, too. I'll let you know.
