Isn’t It Supposed To Be Spring?

Posted on

So, a TON of you ladies have commented on the Salon Effects nail polish!  🙂  Glad you all like it!  I’m not sure exactly how long it will last, but so far we’re still going strong!  I’ll keep you updated!  I found mine at Giant, but they have it at Walmart, Rite Aid, and CVS stores, too!

Is anyone else super disappointed that Puxatony Phil was obviously mistaken about an early Spring?  Because, this 30° weather just isn’t doing it for me.  SO over it.

The workout before church was an Insanity Cardio workout, and burned up 366 calories in just 50 minutes!

Breakfast on Sunday consisted of a huge chunk of banana bread smeared with peanut flour paste mixed with cocoa powder.  No photo, though. 

When I arrived at church for the first time in awhile, since I had missed while in Florida, I was surprised to find that they had already set up for the Easter play!  Check out the crazy intricate scene they’ve got in place!  I’ll be honest…stuff like that bothers me sometimes…going over the top with costly decorations, when they could be helping SO many people with the money they spent on it.

Lunch was quick and easy when I got home from church around 1PM.  I microwaved an egg + 1 egg white and served it on a high fiber, 100 calorie whole wheat english muffin with reduced sugar ketchup.

For veggie power, I had a snack plate of steamed sugar snap peas, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes with forty spices hummus for dipping. 

I decided that in spite of the chill factor, the sun was shining, which meant I needed to be outside. 

Since my workout in the morning was fast-paced, I opted for a leisurely walk.  I planned on hiking up the mountain, but after getting part-way, was forced to turn back because of the wind.

I still managed to get a nice loop of about 5 miles in, though, and although the air was crisp, I couldn’t get enough of the sunshine!

On the way back, I pass my Godparents’ house, and decided to stop and visit a little while, since they had just gotten back from Florida!

It ended up being an excellent decision to stop, because I got to see Bo while I was there, too!  My cousin and her hubs had stopped to visit the Godparents as well.  My bestie and I are godsisters 🙂

Finally, I tore myself away from being a baby hog, and went home.  A bunch of family members were coming over for dinner, so when I got there, Momma was getting the food ready, and a few of us played Scattegories.  LOVE this game…and any word game for that matter.  I wasn’t on my game, though.  I was probably too focused on the apple I knawed on while the timer was ticking away.

I threw together a nice big bowl of salad and microwaved some frozen, pre-cooked chicken breast meat.  My balsamic glazes are dwindling down, and all I’m left with is the plain.  I’m totally ordering more…no doubt.

I had a nice little Skype date, yet again 🙂 

Hiii Caseeyyyy (If you’re reading this).

To me, Sundays are all about family & friends.  I also studied a bit for my Nutrition test, which is tonight, while I had dessert aka Strawberry Chobani! *PLEASE SAY A PRAYER
