Posts Tagged ‘Crunches’

First day back at home … and I missed a Pilates class. This day light savings time change really has kicked my but. I couldn’t wake up until 8:30am and by then, the Pilates class was over.

I realized when I was down in Key West… everyone had an alcoholic beverage, or an ice cream cone in there hands. It seemed like the bad foods and beverages were O.K. to eat, just because everyone else was doing it. So I indulged with ice cream Saturday & Sunday… and here I am on Tuesday eating it again. But if this is any consolation, the ice cream I’m eating today is raspberry sorbet (less cream!).

During dinner at The Outback Steakhouse Restaurant, I was soooo hungry I ate tooooo much Bread. The bread The Outback brings to your table IS NOT white bread; it’s pumpernickel dark bread. Not tooo bad (I don’t think), but I also did have Mike’s Baked Potato along with my Steamed Vegetables and Chopped Salad.

To help get rid of some of this fat and extra junk I ate, I’ll be able to get in some weights and crunches before bed.!!!!

Blizzard of 09' in D.C. Area

Shoveled Snow at House

Blizzard of 09' in D.C. Area

Shoveled Snow at House

Friday night, the Washington D.C. metro area got hit with snow that didn’t stop until Saturday night. That means we got over 26 inches of snow. Before the snow came Friday, we went to go see a movie (Did You Hear About the Morgans?) in dry conditions and by the time the movie let out, it was snowing and traffic was backed up as far as the eye could see.

Luckily, we made it home slow and safe as we watched others on the commute who were so lucky. There were a handful of cars already on the side of the road and others sliding through traffic to make it to there destination.

Since I didn’t get my workout on Friday, Saturday I thought I’d get a workout by shoveling the 12 or so inches that had already fell. By this time everything was closed, so I figured so was the Pilates Gym. The snow didn’t stop until Sunday morning, so I went out again and started shoveling. But this time, I over did it and got hurt from lifting that heavy snow. 😦

So I took it really easy…. laying in bed with a heating pad and taking Advil. Monday, I was feeling much better and so we went to the Leesburg Outlet Mall… Did a bunch of walking and felt good. Today(Tuesday) we went out and got caught in a bunch of traffic while we dropped off drying cleaning, hit Costco, and stopped off at TJMaxx. Needless to say, not feeling too good, so I’m laying here with the heating pad and making my blog entry.

I don’t know when I’ll be able to get back on track with Pilates, or even doing some crunches and weights at home???? It’s a bit frustrating and makes eating a real challenge, because I’m not able to work it off.
