Up & Down…..

…….Monday, 1/25/10

Basically, my day started out good……. 

  • Got out of bed on time.
  • Left the house one time, despite the rain!
  • Arrived to work on time.
  • Had a quite morning.

………then around noon it happened, however I will explain that down further!  1st lets see what I ate during my morning bliss.  =) 

I had a bowl Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds in 2% milk and a glass of orange juice for breakfast


It was a yummy bowl, just got soggy a little to quickly for my liking and I also was hungry a few hours later.  So I snacked on some whole-grain pita chips and a little roasted red pepper humus (no picture, ate quickly in the kitchen) until I finally made my lunch around 1pm. 

Lunch was a thin whole-wheat bagel with Boar’s Head oven-gold turkey, swiss cheese, a tomato slice, romaine lettuce and a little mayo.  I also had some baby carrots and 1/2 an apple on the side


Then it happened…….the DOWN part of my day!  =( 



Which, left my computer in need of an IT Specialist who would be coming at 5pm to fix…….so the next several hours of work were spent catching on up some paper work aka filing and working on another computer in the office.Once 5pm hit, actually a bit before it, I picked up my daughter and headed home.  Unfortunately, the house was a bit quite when we got home as my hubby was at school.  =(  We’re greeted by our dog Peanut though, who is always happy to see us.  =)

Next I did the following:

  • Took a shower.
  • Put some laundry away.
  • Did some ironing.
  • Then I started dinner.

It was Taco night again (yes, we have it every week) in our house and I had a huge taco salad that was oh so YUMMY. 


I only ate about 3/4’s of it though, as I feel guilty eating the entire thing because it is so BIG……=O

My hubby got home just in time for dinner, which was nice as we like to all eat together…..though it was a bit late, 8pm!  =O

We ate slowly too, cleaned up and talked about his evening.  Then the little one went to bed and we talked some more before watching a little TV and hitting the hay around 11pm.




Your A-to-Z Guide to a Flat Belly 

T-Try a harder plank. 

Increase the belly benefits by replacing your usual plank pose with this variation, recommends Stuart McGill, PhD, author of Ultimate Back Fitness and Performance. Kneel and put forearms on a stability ball, elbows bent and hands clasped; roll forward and straighten legs behind you. Move the ball in little circles with forearms, keeping the rest of your body still.

    I absolutely *love* taco salads, but always forget about making them. So yummy, filling and healthy! 😀

    Sorry about the computer crash! That is exactly why I hate technology so much, sometimes. Such a love-hate relationship. 😀
