Hey Friends! Today is a very cold day, so I opted to stay inside all day and skip my run. I’m trying to stay well! I just finished meal prepping for the week. I made the same lunch that I did last week. We’re getting ready to watch the Super Bowl. To be honest, I’m more excited about Justin Timberlake at half time than I am the actual game. Before the game gets started, let’s get right into my recap!
This last week felt like it went by in a blur. It didn’t really feel like during the week, but now that I’m looking back on it, it feels like it was gone so fast. Monday was an extremely busy day!! So it did fly by! That meant I had to have lots of Spark! I started my morning with Spark and a protein bar. I went to work at 7:15 and got done at 3. I barely had enough time to eat any lunch. My lunch for this past week (and this coming week) was ground turkey, roasted zucchini and squash, and steamed green beans.
At 3, I ran home and picked up Jeremy and grabbed a protein bar and some more Spark. We headed to a basketball tournament. It’s an elementary tournament and Jeremy usually calls one day each year and I volunteer to keep the book or work the clock. This year I was keeping the book. There were four games Monday evening and by the third one I was having a hard time not zoning out. It was almost 9 before we got home.
I was starving when we got home so I quickly showered and then fixed some dinner. They had a hospitality room at the games, but it was full of cookies and sub sandwiches so I decided to wait until I got home to eat. I scrambled one egg and 4 whites (my eggs were expiring today so I had to get rid of them) and then threw in the rest of the ground turkey that I had. I topped the eggs and turkey with salsa and ate it all with a piece of multi grain toast. Actually I couldn’t finish it all.
After I ate, I fixed Jeremy some dinner and then we watched some more TV until I fell asleep. It was a long day!
Tuesday started the same as I do every day with Spark and a granola bar. Lunch was the same as Monday. I tried Monday to wear some cute wedge booties, but my foot obviously didn’t like them. It was sore all day today. When I got ready to work out, it was still hurting so I had to modify some of the moves. I started off week 2 of the BBG workouts with the lower body workout. I finished it up with lots of stretching so I wouldn’t be sore the next day.
Jeremy was gone reffing tonight so I fixed something really good for dinner – or at least something that he wouldn’t eat. When I told him what I ate, he said, “yuck”. LOL! I actually just threw together a big bowl of stuff I had in the fridge. My bowl had ground turkey, one whole egg plus two whites, sautéed zucchini, and spinach. I ended up putting some salsa on top and it worked!
After dinner I caught up on the Bachelor since I was gone Monday night.
I did not sleep well Tuesday night and I was wide awake at 5 am Wednesday morning. I went ahead and got up since I knew my alarm would be ringing soon. Jake was comfortable in his bed. 🙂 (I covered him up around 3 am and he was still covered when I got up.)
I had some Spark (one scoop plus a little extra today) to start my day and give me some energy. Later in the afternoon I had a lot of energy – thanks to some more Spark. I decided to double up on my run and BBG workout today. I was actually trying to plan ahead because I knew we were going to have a busy weekend. I ran 2 miles today and then did the BBG arms and abs.
Jeremy was home Wednesday night so we cooked dinner. He grilled some steak for himself and some chicken for me. I baked him a potato and sautéed some zucchini and squash for myself. This was the best chicken he has ever cooked!
Thursday I picked up some Elderberry tablets. It feels like everyone I know is sick, most with the flu, and I do not want it! I decided to be a little more proactive in fighting off the germs. This stuff doesn’t taste great, but if it will work I’ll take it everyday!
I took a rest day Thursday. It wasn’t planned, but I was sore and tired from Wednesday and had absolutely no motivation to do anything. I decided to take an Epson bath to help my soreness.
Dinner tonight was 1 egg and 2 whites with ground turkey and half a pear.
After dinner I read a book while Jake watched the puppy bowl training. LOL He seriously sat for probably half an hour watching the dogs on TV.
On Friday night, I had been planning on going with Jeremy to his game, but I backed out when I figured out that the weather was pretty warm, or at least warmer than it had been the last couple of days. I headed out for a run and only made it 2 miles again. My foot was sore all week after wearing those boots on Monday. After my run I did a BBG total body workout. I had to modify some of the moves because of my foot, but I got it done.
My dinner tonight was eggs (1 egg & 2 whites), ground turkey, and spinach. It was okay. After eating it all week, I was a little tired of it.
Jake and I went to bed around 8, and I was asleep long before Jeremy got home. He came in around 10:15 and I got up long enough to say hello. I went back to sleep on the couch until he woke me up to go to bed. I have no idea why I was so tired, but I couldn’t keep my eyes open.
Saturday was Jeremy’s birthday! We got up early and headed to OKC. (Jake didn’t want us to get up. He snuggled with me forever!)
We shopped all day! We made a few stops and then went to the New Balance store to get fitted for insoles. My doctor recommended them. I’m excited to run and try them out. Of course they tried to sell me some new running shoes, but I just really love my Brooks. When we left there, we stopped at Del Taco to grab some lunch before we did some more serious shopping. I had two chicken street tacos.
After that I had to have a pick me up before we went to Academy.
We seriously spent over 2 hours in there. Jeremy really loves that store! I at least ended up buying him a bunch of new camo for his birthday. It’s so much easier when he gets to pick out what he wants.
Later that evening, we met up with some friends and ate dinner at Outback for Jeremy’s birthday.
I ordered the grilled chicken, veggies, and a side salad. The chicken came out by itself and it took forever for us to get someone to get our waiter. By the time he brought the veggies I was done and full, but I ate some of them anyways because they looked so good!
It was a fun night! (I got a cute new shirt that didn’t show up in the pic of us together.)
We were up almost all night because Jeremy wasn’t feeling well. He hadn’t felt well all day, but toughed it out so he could celebrate. His head and ear hurt bad. So we slept till almost noon. We were supposed to go watch the game today with some friends, but he’s still laying on a heating pad trying to get some relief. So, we’re hanging out at home and watching all the pregame stuff. Jeremy wants me to make some quesadillas later. I’m going to make him some chicken ones and me a black bean and avocado one. I’m getting hungry just thinking about them. And, then we’re going to have some chocolate birthday cake! (We’re having a family celebration later this week.)
Here is my calendar from last week. I ended up having more rest days than I planned, but I got all of the workouts done except one run.
Since I’m sure most of you aren’t reading this until Monday because of the game, I hope you have a great Monday and a great week! And, if you are reading this today, enjoy the game!
