Rain rain go away! Uggg what a gross day. I’m taking a half day at work (!!!) to go down to Winthrop and get my books, student ID and email set up. I wanted to walk all around the campus and get to know it before my first day, but the weather is always horrible when I go down there and I just want to get back home!
Breakfast # 1
Toast with jam and Smart Balance:
Hour-long spinning class. 440 burned. It went by fast and I felt really strong and energetic. Super!
Oatmeal pancake with banana and walnuts, clementine and soy milk latte:
And a small piece of bacon the husband made for me!
All on my leaf plate for 390 kcal:
Total breakfast calories:500
I LOVE eating lunch at home, since I rarely get to, so I’m headed home around 11:30 and am planning on having smoked salmon pasta (we need to use it up before our trip!)
And I’m headed to Winthrop after that. I hope to do some walking if the weather clears up!
Husband and I are out of food and will walk to the grocery store this afternoon for some dinner ingredients. We’re thinking turkey burgers?
I LOVE having an afternoon off for once!
We’re headed home to my parents’ house in Hillsborough (near Chapel Hill/Durham) tomorrow and will be there thru Wednesday. I should be able to blog from there, assuming I don’t come across any computer/Internet issues. They still have dial-up on some computers and high speed on one of them, so I think I can make it work.
Here’s our tentative Christmas schedule:
Sat. – Workout at our gym before we leave tomorrow morning. Christmas with husband’s dad, grandparents, and cousins in the afternoon; Dinner with 14 people at a nice local restaurant with great seafood.
Sun. – Go running. Healthy lunch (sandwiches); Mom’s homemade fondue (NOT healthy but delicious!) plus a big salad that I’m making. Plan: Have a little fondue and a lot of salad!
Mon. – Workout at mom’s gym. Lunch out at a restaurant. Dinner is ham sandwiches (fresh ham) and a big salad and a Christmas Eve Party later in the night with lots of snacks. The snacks won’t be healthy but I’ll have some to celebrate! I’d LOVE just one cup of egg nog!
Tues. – Christmas! Brunch at husband’s grandparents’ plus a HUGE dinner that night. Gotta be sure to get a nice run in and perhaps a walk too and will try to keep the dessert portions small.
Wed. – Head home! Perhaps workout at mom’s gym, or just do walking.
