Happy Monday!!  I’m a bit bummed that my Steelers didn’t win the Super Bowl last night… although it was a pretty decent game (and awesome commercials!!)  Besides the little mishap with the wording of the National Anthem (Sorry Christina Sad smile), and the fact that Green Bay’s receiver, Nelson, missed about 6 catches (I see a trade in the NFL draft for him…FAIL) it was pretty darn exciting!  Scott ended up winning $50 from a scoring thing his company did Open-mouthed smile so that’s always awesome.  I had SO much food last night too (cookies, cake and ice cream (x2), Falafel, Nachos, drink, chips and salsa, meatballs, dip, and veggies, so it definitely felt good to hit up a spin class this morning because I was properly “carb-loaded” Winking smile.

I had the usual ½ banana, water, and ½ of a Chocolate Brownie Clif Z Bar when I got up this morning (still can’t believe I was hungry!)


Workout: Energized Endurance Ride

I got lucky this morning too – our regular instructor got “Food Poisoning” (aka… I think she partied too hard at her Super Bowl party – she still showed up at 5:45 am, but then left!), so we had a substitute Smile.  It turned out to be the girl who teaches on Tuesday nights (I usually don’t make her class), but she’s my age.. and she throws a pretty intense session!

Totals: 456 cals, 16.3 miles, 52 mins 

Post spin food was overnight oats: 1/3 cup rolled oats, ½ smashed banana, 2/3 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk, 1T chia seeds, ½ tsp vanilla, sprinkle of cinnamon, ½ cup blueberries.  I topped that all with the other half of the Clif Z bar, peanut butter, and a teeny bit of Agave. 


Mega yum!!  This, along with some coffee brought me right into Monday morning work mode.

This morning was really crazy too – as soon as I sat down I had to run back to the lab to assemble a few things for testing… which ended up taking about 2 hours.  Right before a meeting I nibbled on some cocoa roast almonds (I only have 1 little package left Surprised smile). 


I was only starting to get hungry, but I knew by the time the meeting ended I’d be starving (aka… not paying much attention to what I need to be)

Lunch today was sort of a random assembly of fridge material, but I’m happy with the amount of color I got in it!


a toasted whole wheat English muffin, 3 turkey slices, a cheese slice, hummus, salsa, slices of green pepper, cherry tomatoes, a sparkling water, and a peach for dessert.  This was a SUPER filling lunch – I normally don’t add this many components to a meal – I tend to graze throughout the day so my “main” meals aren’t gigantic.

About 4 hours later (large lunch = awesome!) I tried out an Earnest Eats Choco Peanut Butter bar – what’s NOT to love about chocolate and peanut butter?! 


It was in-between crunchy and chewy, but slightly more on the chewy side.. and tasted deeeelicious Open-mouthed smile!  I found this at Sprouts Farmer’s market last week, and I’m definitely going to be picking up a few more the next time I’m there.

That got me through the end of work, and now I’m trying to come up with something for dinner that’s still healthy.  After yesterday, my body wants more vegetables and less sugar!  While I’m cooking, I’m pretty sure The Bachelor is going to be on!

How was your Super Bowl party?  Did you party hard or hardly party? Winking smile


We spent allll afternoon looking at houses today (about 8 of them!!).  I am now at the brink of total exhaustion, but we’re just about to sit down and catch up on some American Idol so that will be some wonderful R&R time.

We were at our neighbors pretty late last night, and I almost didn’t wake up in time for spin class this morning!  I wasn’t too hungry either because I downed 2 huge n cheesy Chorizo Enchiladas, beans, and two oatmeal raisin cookies last night.  They make extremely deeeelicious food, but holy cow it was WAY to good to pass up Smile

I could only handle a slice of sprouted wheat toast, a thin layer of PB, and raisins before spin. 


Workout: Endurance Ride

Today was an intense hour long ride, and very little recovery time in between hills and 12 to 15 minute intervals.  However, our instructors have the go ahead to use the projectors during class now, so I used the Snowboarding Wipeouts video that she played to distract myself from all my leg pain! Open-mouthed smile

Totals: 551 cals, 18.0 miles, 1:03 time

Not too bad considering yesterday’s workout brought me to the anaerobic stage (completely breathless).  This usually means you won’t get as high of numbers the next day.

I downed one of the new Fage 0% yogurts (Cherry Pomegranate), coffee and milk, and some Cinnamon Burst Cheerios (from yesterday) right after I got home.  I only ate a little bit because we were leaving in 2.5 hours for house hunting stuff and I wanted to be able to eat a good lunch before that.


Btw… I’m LOVING the yogurts so far!  I had Scott try it but he still thinks it tastes like chalk.  Granted, I felt the same way for a while but I don’t taste that anymore.  This flavor was really tasty but not as thick and creamy as the 2% I usually buy.  Either way, YUM!

Lunch was thrown together right after a shower: a huuuge salad, an apple with cinnamon on the side, and a few Kashi crackers with hummus. 


I stupidly spent more time prepping and taking a picture that I completely ran out of time.  I had to throw it all in a bowl and eat in the car on the way to meeting our realtor. Fail.


However, house hunting went WAY better than expected.  We had 6 properties lined up to see, but spotted one that was up for sale right across from another we were supposed to view.  Long story short (and many many phone calls later): we are probably making an offer before the weekend is over Surprised smile.  Neither of us could come up with anything that was wrong with the house, property, or the neighborhood.  We even drove around and talked with a lady walking her dogs for a good 20 minutes about the area.  Biggest selling points??  A HUGH JASS kitchen, upgraded appliances, and a basement in which we can set up a big screen Open-mouthed smile.  I feel like I’m going to puke and  Scott is literally going CRAZY right now with jitters, “what-ifs”, questions…etc.  We are going to be a wreck for a few days while we figure this all out.

The the waiting process begin!! Open-mouthed smile
