This morning started out with baking Magic Bars for yet another library party. And then the gym and a meeting. The afternoon was FULL of errands. But I only have ONE gift left to buy. WAHOO! I even squeezed in getting my car cleaned.
Food: Breakfast was a granola bar. Lunch was egg beaters, an english muffin and turkey sausage. I had a few carrots in there somewhere. Then I went out. And I ate some gummy bears. Dinner was Trader Joe’s Orange Chicken with Vegetable Fried Rice. But in the middle I had some mini-peanut butter cups, a couple of broken magic bars and some peanut butter. Oops. I should have brought a snack on the errands with me.
And tonight has been hijacked with this:
We somehow ended up with sneak preview tickets to the new Mission Impossible movie. I am not a huge fan of the movies, but the popcorn is a different story! So I put HALF of my dinner away in anticipation of the popcorn.
Fitness: I did 1 HOUR of intervals on the elliptical. And then some stretching.
The bags hold: trail mix, orange chicken, mini taco’s, meatloaf muffins, flat iron steaks, scones, naan, hummus, some sort of lemon tarte and various other things. I am so excited.
Tonight is the glow in the dark 5k! Race report later.
So you have to know how excited I am. I have to head to Durham tomorrow for an appt. And that puts me right through Chapel Hill. Which has a Trader Joe’s. I CAN’T WAIT!!! It is not that long of a ride so a cooler might not really be necessary, but I will bring it anyway just in case.
In fact, I need to go eat a crumpet so I know if I should buy more.
Now here is the Daily Mood for today. It was another good and productive day. I feel good about today. I did an “easy walk” this morning since we have a 5k tomorrow night. And just got back from the gym where I did some elliptical and weights.
I want some cereal. I must be channeling Janae!
It was a tough call, what to do today. And once I realized that there was TWELVE STRAIGHT HOURS OF HOUSE HUNTERS on, it got even harder. But that is what the DVR is for! And I actually got excited about the idea of watching the House Hunters all week while I eat my lunch. So off we went to Trader Joe’s and Ikea in Charlotte.
I didn’t get to take my own pictures because I was SO excited to be there that I forgot. The same was true when we got to Ikea (and it was raining when we came out). Traders Joe’s was exciting for the Cinnamon crumpets, the Cinnamon scones (see a pattern), the trail mixes, mini peanut butter cups. I wandered around so long Michael thought I was done and waiting outside. I saw Two Buck Chuck. And Corn Salsa. And yummy desserts and pizza. I could go on and on. We need to go back with a cooler.
We can thank what is left of Tropical Storm Lee for a very SLOW drive home. And the forecasts say the weather will suck here for at least the next 24 hours, so I am curled up with a Stella and House Hunters/US Open Tennis.
Can Labor Day last a few more days?
Oh, and I did run 3 miles and do leg presses, calf raises and hamstring curls at the gym before we went!
