Rolled out of bed a little later than I’d wanted (didn’t get to stop and have my  fasting blood work done) but made it to work on time. 🙂

It was rainy/cloudy, and my bed was the perfect temperature. Too much temptation!

Citrucel on the way to work – 7:45 a.m.

Breakfast – 8:30 a.m.

I was starving this morning, but was excited for my breakfast: Dannon Greek Yogurt w/ Honey, banana, peanut butter puffins


(Supah-sweet breakfast! LOL)

I ate them individually rather than mixing: yogurt, banana, then puffins. Yum, and filling too!

I’d never had the Dannon greek yogurt – it was okay…but I think I just don’t like yogurt with honey in it. It isn’t my thing.

At 10:30 I decided to take a break and walk 4 blocks to the post office (we needed stamps at home). It was humid, but nice to get out of the office for a bit!

When I got back I had a small snack…

Snack – 10:45 a.m.

1/3 of this ThinkThin bar. I had a coupon for it so I thought I’d give it a go…but eh. It’s a little too protein-bar-processy tasting for me, I think. I won’t be finishing it.


Lunch – 12:00 p.m.

Tuna salad (relish – we’re out of celery!, onion, salt, pepper, tuna, and greek yogurt) with whole wheat baked crackers (I love these things….3 ingredients!) and some veggies for crunch (peppers, carrots, tomatoes)


I love albacore tuna the best, but since there are so many warnings about it, when I make my tuna salad I mix one can of albacore and one can of chunk light together….I like to think it minimizes the risk. LOL It makes enough for 2 lunches, as well!

Snack – 1:45 p.m.

Obviously didn’t pack enough for lunch, and I discovered I had grapes in the work fridge. Grapes were then consumed. 🙂


Snack – 3:45 p.m.

I was insanely hungry by the time snack time rolled around. Definitely needed more for lunch today!

peanut butter  + low-sugar strawberry jam on whole grain

Exercise – 4:45 p.m.

15 minutes warm-up on the stationary bike

I haven’t had time to look into my next foray after the Oxygen full body workout, so my plan was to finish out the week with it.

For something a little different I went with 3 sets of endurance reps (15 per set) with a lighter weight. I also did the sets 2 exercises each  before moving onto the next exercise, instead of moving through the circuit like I had been.

The problem? I got charlie horses in my knees on my last set of pile squats.

Man does that hurt!!!

So much so I dropped the rest of my lower body exercises for today, and am sitting here with ice packs on my knees.

I’m a mess. LOL

Pile Squat 15 lb dumbbell 3 x 15
Bent Over Row 10 lb dumbbells 3 x 15


Alternating Dumbbell Curls 12.5 lb dumbbells 3 x 15
Flat Bench Chest Press 15 lb dumbbells 3 x 15


Seated Shoulder Press 12.5 lb dumbbells 3 x 15
Seated Tricep Extension 15 lb dumbbell 3 x 15


Cross-Bench Pullover 12.5 lb dumbbell 3 x 15
Cross-Chest Dumbbell Curls 10 lb dumbbells 3 x 15


Abductor Machine 180 lbs 3 x 12
Adductor Machine 195 lbs 3 x 12

Note the temper tantrum about not being able to do legs there at the end with the hip exercises. LOL


1h10m @ the gym = 430 calories burned

Headed home and managed to walk the pup before my knees froze up on me

Dinner – 7:45 p.m.

Grilled bbq boneless pork ribs, jasmine rice, grilled corn on the cob with herbs and a little real buttah


Can you find the ‘dirty dozen’ in an organic alternative in your town?

I can’t. Grapes, strawberries, peaches, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, cherries, and pears, are nowhere to be found in an organic option. It makes me sad – as the hubs and I talk about children I’d really love to limit my pesticide intake, but when I can’t even get those foods pesticide free…what gives?!

And naturally, they’re all the most delicious fruits and whatnot. 🙁
