Week One Complete!

Hooray! I completed Week One of the C25K program. It feels good and I can't wait to start on next week. I also lost 2 lbs last week so that's a plus too. (like how I just slipped that in there all nonchalantly like I'm not totally squealing about it in real life?)

Yesterday, my mom and dad came a visitin' and took us out to Mimi's for brunch (it was around 11 which is when we usually eat lunch anyway). I got the Breakfast Chiabatta, which was really good, but holy crap is it HIGH in calories. The sandwich as is, is 944. I got it without cheese and the sauce they put on it -- I figure it made it at least 100 calories less but still. I only ate half of it. (I didn't know how bad it was until I got home and looked it up.) Mimi's Cafe serves you a TON of food. I used to be able to hork an entire breakfast. I pretty much only ate half -- half the sandwich, half the potatoes, half the muffin, and I gave my juice to 3ft.

I did a lot of walking yesterday as a visit from the 'rents always involves a lot of shopping which 3ft LOVES because he always gets new clothes, a toy, and other things that a boy of five couldn't possibly live without. So I didn't have quite a slothful day but I still worked out last night. After I got Mr. Grumpybutt in bed, I left my husband and 3ft to fend for themselves and headed over to the gym. I worked out on the elliptical for 33 minutes rocking out to music then wandered home.

That was pretty much my day yesterday. I'm still nursing a blistered toe. Band aids help but I still say my magic shoes leave a lot to be desired since they caused the blister initially. It's not too bad *sob* I suffer through it -- that's how dedicated I am.

I also got peaches, mangoes, and a pineapple yesterday. I'm going to chop, dice, and cut them up and freeze some to make different combination sorbets. I'm totally stoked. I love tropical fruit -- although I don't think peaches count for tropical, come to think of it. OH!!! I also found a mini fluted muffin pan yesterday to make individual angel food cakes. I'm totally stoked and instead of berries I'm going to try it with my new fruit as toppings.

Remember when we were kids and they had those frozen bags of diced melon at Grocery Outlet? If you've got one of those nearby I bet they still sell that stuff. Unfortunately it's probably literally the same bags as from when we were kids. Expiration dates are optional there.

Those were so good. But I'm sure you're right about the expiration date. I actually want fruit not freezer burn. :D

I went to Costco and got enough peaches, mangos, and pineapple to feed a third world country. On my list today is chopping it all up and freezing it. :D
