Plan of Attack!

I sat yesterday and planned out my next 12 weeks worth of exercise. That's right. 12 weeks.

I then had to get my butt to the gym to get going on day one. I hadn't worked out with weights once in December. The first week I was sick with the stomach flu - so I did nothing. And then the next two I worked and had limited time, so I only did my runs. So, yesterday I hit the weights. OMG. I can hardly walk today. Today I have a 30 minute run and some core exercises planned. Can't wait. (typed with heavy sarcasm!) The idea of running right now makes my legs feel even more sore!

I didn't have a stellar eating day yesterday. I've certainly had worse....but I've also had much better. The worst part was....I did it out of boredom. I was excited to be done work for this week because daughter is done school, but she spent the day with her friend shopping and then went for a sleep over.....so I was alone. Oh, well. Today is a new day.

I finally got around to making my grocery list. Husband & I are going to go tonight. After we go to the gym. I may wander over to Superstore....they are open until midnight. I don't know my way around the store there though....sometimes that can slow things down.

What else.....not much I guess. I noticed that just about every light bulb in my house is burned out. It's driving me nuts.

Deborah asked about my bonanza bean recipe...it is really just fancied up baked beans. I put 4 cans of baked beans (I buy 2 maple kind and 2 tomato kind) in the crock pot (my MIL does them in the oven), a chopped onion, chopped tomatoes, bacon pieces, mustard, molasses & brown sugar - mix it all up. Then I just let it simmer away for the afternoon. The Brussels sprouts recipe I haven't actually tried yet, but it looks so good - it is from here: http://kalynskitchen.blogspot.com/2007/11/roasted-brussels-sprouts-recipe-with.html. I can't wait to try it.

I made Bionic Woman's squares....they taste great, but my chocolate layer separated a bit from the base when I cut them up. I'm still going to serve them, but...I wonder what I did wrong. I'm going to bake some WW pumpkin pies today.

Well bloggers. Have a healthy day!

  1. Thanks for the recipes. The Bonanza beans sounds like the way I make them except I use catsup instead of chopped tomatoes. Will have to try the tomatoes sometime.

    Have a wonderful Christmas!
