60 Days Out!

SNOW DAY!! I woke up feeling GREAT this morning! Which is weird because I have half a foot of snow outside my window and it's grey and freezing cold outside! Seems like an excellent day to be lazy, but I think I'm going to get a lot done today (poor Justin)!

We ate great yesterday! That's probably why I feel so good this morning!

I need to chant that to myself when I am about to eat something crappy! I made a potato and vegetable soup yesterday. I used white potatoes instead of sweet, but I still feel good about eating it! I haven't had a white potato touch these lips in a looooong time! It was delicious! It was warm and hearty, perfect for a cold snowy day. I also made some homemade corn bread to serve with it! A lot of carbs for one meal, but portion is key! And I ate it early in the day. My body burns through food pretty fast these days. If I even think about a carb after about 6pm, I'll be up all night! Carbs are energy, so I have to eat those early in the day and early evening! It really cuts down on late night snacking because I know the consequences!

Other than the potato/veggie soup, which I ate for my 3rd and 4th meal, I had oats and protein, egg whites and an apple, and chicken with brown rice and peas and carrots. I love oats and protein powder! I am missing my chocolate/caramel protein powder though. Once we are through this gigantic bag of chocolate protein, I am putting in my request for chocolate caramel! I also love chicken with brown rice, peas and carrots! One of my other favorite meals is brown rice, peas, carrots, a spicy tuna packet and raw peanuts. All warmed up so the tuna and peanuts are hot too and it's soooo good!! I think I'll be eating that today! Since I am listing my favorite foods now, my last all time favorite is chicken, roasted broccoli, roasted sweet potatoes....with olive oil!!! Yum! I love all the foods I just listed way more than pizza or chicken wings or tacos! Well, maybe not more than tacos, but it's a different kind of love! Because I feel better when I eat that stuff, but sometimes it's the preparing it that I get lazy about! Which is so ridiculous, because it's not hard to throw frozen broccoli on a cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil and salt and's the sweet potatoes...oh those delicious little pains in my butt! I peel them because they are so ugly and dirty, I don't want to eat the skin, so I peel them, then cut them, then toss them in olive oil and salt and throw onto a baking sheet....see how many steps! :) Sometimes I make a big batch to eat on all day, but they are best fresh out of the oven. Justin makes them sometimes for us, but he leaves the skin on and it grosses me out! You can not scrub those things enough for me to think they are clean enough to eat!

Okay enough about food! And the sun is coming out, Yay! I am so glad my good mood is back! I was in a little funk! I won't be working out with Diana today because I am not getting out and driving around in this crap unless I absolutely have to! I am not a fan of driving in the snow! The highways are probably fine but it's getting out of and into my neighborhood that is scary because it's so thank you! I'll lift weights on my own today. Which brings me to my next thought....I actually feel like lifting weights on my own today! I need to get in 55 minutes of cardio as well. I can't decide if I want to do an Insanity DVD or the cardio workout I did last week with the treadmill/spin bike/stairs. I have also been thinking I need to consider doing two cardio sessions a day for a couple of weeks since I was in my little funk the past couple of weeks and didn't make any progress toward my goal. I just have the hardest time talking myself into that second session! I really should do it though!

Okay, well, hope everyone has a great day! I'll be enjoying the beautiful snow from INSIDE today!
