What’s there to say about today? Not much! Gym workout was good,  did 2.16 miles and strength training doing arms and back, upped my weight from 16lbs to 20lbs. That’s pretty exciting. And on a sadder note, I weighed in and did measurements and compared from 3 months ago, and I gained 10lbs and gained 0.5 inches on each spot. Ick! That was kind of a reality check to seriously get my butt moving into gear, especially since summer is going to come so quickly.

I have an upcoming Zumba workshop in just over 2 weeks, so I am thinking that doing that might be the swift kick in the rear to get me moving again.

As for supper tonight, we made some fish with a lemon butter dill sauce (YUMMY) and a caesar salad on the side. I was craving the salad so bad, the fish was a nice touch.

I am just getting ready for bed now, pretty tired, still fighting whatever sickness that is trying to take over my body.

Do you go to a fitness class or are you thinking of joining one? Which one?

Bloggie Valentines package has officially been sent off!

Supper tonight is a mix n match night, there will be a feast of Spaghetti squash with sauce and fried tofu. The only reason for this is basically to finish up what we have left so that we can stock up on some new stuff.

Then I am all booked up for the evening because The Biggest Loser is on tonight. That makes me sound like such a Loser. And speaking of being a loser, I really need to get into the gym tomorrow. I will drug myself take some cold meds and go to bed early just so I can hopefully feel better tomorrow.  Any tips on feeling better quick?

I am still feeling rotten! I had one horrible night, I was barely able to sleep, my nose is still stuffy and my throat has been bugging me too. When will I get a break!?

Anyways, I’m just completing my package for the Bloggie Valentine, however I will not be putting pictures up because I don’t want them to be able to peak early just in case they see this post! I can’t wait to see what I receive from my new bloggie friend, that will definitely be photographed and documented on here.

A few days ago I was going to visit my parents, it was a very beautiful frosty day. Lucky for you, I took pictures!

Isn’t Saskatchewan just beautiful? I love that landscape on, gotta love the prairies.

WORKOUT –  4 miles on treadmill – 60 minutes

I attempted my skills today for my 6.2 mile race, I fell short, only 4 miles before I had to call it quits. But for me I was impressed, plus I ran most of it which is almost impossible for me. I guess if I keep this up, I’ll be able to do the 6.2 in no time.

Pre-workout food was an apple and a banana. Post-workout fuel was 3 eggs scrambled.

And here’s another tribute to the month of LOVE! With only 6 days left.

So first off, not sure what kind of gift this would be! But I kind of thought it was clever, when the light is red it’s hot water, and when it’s blue it’s cold water. Just in case your real "smart" I guess. Not such a good gift if you’re color blind!

All I have to say is, WTF!?

eye_massager

I bet you don’t know what that is? Maybe it’s my new mask because I’m a super hero. Wait, no I’m not. It’s actually an ‘Eye massager’,  Umm ok then!

dog

This is a good product because its Green, use warm or cold. But WHY is it a dog laying on your face? Why couldn’t they just make it something that wasn’t an animal, how about a rectangular shape

 

That’s it for now. Not even sure what to say after those inventions.

Sunday already!? Where did the weekend go?

Yesterday consisted of coffee with a very good friend in the morning, we browsed some stores for awhile. I headed to Walmart after that I picked up a few items for the kitties. Then I was off to my parents house for a bit of a visit. After that it was supper time, we went and tried out some Authentic Indian Food at Spicy Bite. There was a buffet so we were able to feast on a variety of dishes. I feasted on some mixed veggies in a milder spicy sauce, channa masala (chickpeas in spicy sauce), plain rice, vegetable samosas, and awesome naan bread. It was a very small little restaurant, but great service. Kind of reminded me of Babu Bhatt on Seinfeld. Not Pakistani, but the way the man waited on us it reminded me of the Seinfeld episode. It was a great night.

The evening was very uneventful, just relaxed. I think I am really fighting a cold right now so I have been feeling really drained and stuffed up.

I think today will mostly be pretty chill. This morning I have already been cleaning, I vacuumed and started laundry. So far its been productive. I will catch you up later if anything more happens!

I don’t know WHY I am so excited about pizza, I guess because its a comfort food and I’m craving it and not really wanting the extra calories of the ones from the pizza places. Can’t get much better than home made!

Look how tasty that looks! Whole wheat naan bread, tomato sauce, red, green and yellow peppers, chopped mushrooms and mozza cheese.  Baked only a short while for some awesome yummy goodness. Drooling yet?

Well I am off to relax for the night. Have a good one.

I am super psyched about tonight’s supper, I wish it was supper time already! The agenda is homemade pizza’s on Whole Wheat Naan bread, with red,yellow and green peppers, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese.

But first before supper can happen I had to do my cardio and abs sesh. Just over an hour of a workout. I did 2.76 miles total and a series of ab exercises. Felt great! I definitely got my sweat on.

Stay tuned for pictures from tonight’s awesome supper!

Happy Hump Day everyone. How are you doing? I am doing great today, finally.

I kicked butt at the gym today, just wanted to start off with something positive! I did 2.9 miles and some strength training, I burned 500 calories in that hour of working out. Go me! I went and shovelled snow for about 20 minutes and burned over 100 calories. Wow!

This afternoon I did a little chocolate making. I made some peanut butter cups, with dark chocolate and natural PB. I also made ones with sweetened coconut in them.

Suppers agenda, sort of Italian feel, since yesterday was Indian:

Spaghetti Squash and fried Tofu. I have never really eaten tofu before and the one and only time I did it wasn’t very enjoyable, but I didn’t cook it up or add any flavours to it so that doesn’t count as much of an experience.

Spaghetti squash was pretty basic, topped with some tomato sauce and I added spices like oregano, basil and garlic, and I also added some mushrooms.

The tofu was fried with oil, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. It was very tasty, didn’t seem like tofu at all.

First picture is just before cooking it, all spiced up. Second picture is cooked and ready for eatin’.

During the preparation of supper I burnt myself with the oil I was cooking the tofu in, I ran it under cold water and then I am still keeping a cool wet cloth on it, but it still hurts really bad.

So tonight we whipped up some good ol’ fashioned indian food. Supper consisted of garlic Naan Bread and Roasted sweet potatoes spiced with oil, curry, cumin, salt, pepper and paprika. It was AH-mazing.

It was first time trying Naan bread, and I was super impressed with how soft it is and has just the right amount of flavour in it.

I definitely think I will be incorporating more indian food, its healthy, vegan/vegetarian and full of flavour and spice!

I also did my at home Week 3 of Winter Shape Up workout, see Winter Shape Up 2010 for all the details.

I’m just waiting for The Biggest Loser to come on tonight, so that’s all I have planned.

 

What is your favourite ethnic food?

I cannot believe it’s the second day of February, where is this year going already? And it is the "Month of Love" really just a hallmark holiday, but I am still a fan, except for the high prices on EVERYTHING. Speaking of Hallmark, have you seen any of their eternity long 2 minute long commercials?? They are BRUTAL.

Here’s one:

Also here’s just a plain ol’ funny commercial:
