Monday

It's Monday and I never thought I'd say this, but I was actually kind of glad for this weekend to be over. It was just jam packed and I felt like I didn't get much time for myself. Between taking my little sister to a concert, my other sister's birthday and Mother's Day yesterdsay, I spent zero time at home and thus zero time preparing myself healthy meals. And I'll confess, I didn't always make the best choices when eating out.

Moving on though, I had a great day today and I'm feeling rejuvenated. For lunch, I tried Kashi's new Chicken Pasta Pomodoro. I wanted to like this so much. I really did. And it was okay. It just wasn't excellent. The nutritional stats are great, and it has less sodium than a lot of the frozen meals I typically eat, but it just didn't have the taste. I'm always sensitive to meat; I don't eat it all that often, and I rarely buy frozen meals that contain meat. Typically I stick to the pasta and bean dishes. But I thought I'd give this one a shot. And I guess I just reiterated why I don't typically buy frozen meals with meat - the chicken was a little chewy and really just not that appetizing. I guess I'll stick to my Lean Cuisines and add a salad with some nuts or cheese to get the extra veggies and protein. Oh well.

I went back down to the elementary school after work today and ran sprints and did some pushups, squats, etc while the boy shot hoops and the dogger ran around. We had a great time; it was so nice to spend that time together after work NOT sitting on the couch. Came home and had an easy turkey sandwich and some applesauce and now I'm just chilling getting ready to watch some bad reality TV (does anyone besides me still watch The Bachelor?)

P.S. Thanks for all of your great comments on the driver's license post. I am so jealous of everyone who doesn't have to post their weight! Lucky! I got my license in the mail today and I'm actually okay with the picture. Imagine that!

So could you send some good vibes my way? I seriously need your attitude to wear off on me right now! Today was my first day back on the health wagon after a 10 day spree and I got back on grudgingly instead of having the positive outlook that you have about a healthy meal and moving the old body around. Part of this whole thing really is just having the right frame of mind and I'm so glad I can always come to you for inspiration!

Sounds like you're doing great. Keep it up! I know what you mean about dodgy frozen meals... not so yummy.

What a great way for you and your hubby to get in some quality time! My husband and I need to start doing more physical stuff together (other than...you know, haha). And yes, I still watch the bachelor! I hope he picks Tessa, they look madly in love. Keep up the great work, Jeni!

Take care,
