This weekend, I planned to accomplish several things, including:
- Study for my CPT exam
- Shop for groceries
- Study some more
It’s funny that I accomplished all of those things, and more, in just one day! So, I am calling today my personal, Super Goal Sunday! I started the morning with a sweaty run on the t-mill (I’ve got to get that heat turned down – ugh!). I am sooo looking forward to running outside in Orlando in a few weeks. The treadmill is really starting to get old.
Breakfast was a super energizing bowl of Trader Joe’s Greek yogurt with a dollop of all-natural peanut butter and a few walnuts…
Breakfast was followed by a little lot of grocery shopping! I can’t believe I spent more than $80 on groceries – guess that’s what happens when you have two growing kids and a husband who is training for the Chicago triathlon.
Lunch was a carbon copy of yesterday’s lunch…
A reduced fat salami sandwich – only this time I had three-cheese bakery bread. Wow – the bread made all the difference in the world. I swear I could have eaten the whole loaf by itself! Along with my sandwich, I also had a few carrots, some low-fat chips and a juicy naval orange. I have been craving citrus fruits so I bought a bag of oranges today. I just couldn’t wait to dig into them!
After lunch, I cleaned a good portion of the house, then headed off to Barnes and Noble to study. After about an hour of studying, I had a mocha frap, mostly to keep me from dozing (only had 6 hours of sleep last night). I only have about a week left to study before the big test! Tick, tock, tick, tock.
Dinner was Scott’s creation – chicken stir-fry…
Stir-fry is so easy to make and it is relatively healthy, as long as you don’t douse it with sodium-fill soy sauce. Plus, you can add all sorts of yummy and color veggies to it to make it even healthier.
**Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints! On a side note, here’s a bit of irony – Big Easy style.**
The Year of the Big Easy
- In December 2009, Disney released it’s Princess and the Frog movie, set in New Orleans
- We will be in Disney World during Mardi Gras
- We will be staying at the French Quarter
- The New Orleans Saints win the Super Bowl
How’s that for coincidence?
Ok, I’m off to study a little more before bed. Have a great night!
