Short Sunday

Today flew by!  This post is going to be short and to the point so I can do a little reading and relaxing tonight before bedtime.

I slept in a little this morning since I really wasn't planning on doing much today.  I woke up when Carl got home from work around 7:30AM.  He worked an overnight police department shift.  He went to bed, and I made some coffee and breakfast for myself.

I was so hungry, I didn't even think about taking a picture until I was almost done eating!  Breakfast was scrambled eggs, a whole wheat English muffin with smart balance spread, and a glass of OJ (Trop 50).  I also had some fruit this morning - grapes and honeydew melon.

I read through the newspaper and three magazines this morning - March 2010 National Geographic, Minneapois St. Paul mag, and my new Health mag.  It was a lot of reading, but at least I'm getting through the pile.  There was a great article in Health about back pain, and how to correct your sitting, standing, and posture to help alleviate the pain.  I tore out the page to post near my desk at work because there were actually pictures on how to sit properly.  I'm hoping that posting this page will be a little reminder to me to sit properly - not lean over, squint, and hunch myself over my keyboard - at work.

I took a break for my morning snack which was a banana and a Fiber One yogurt.

Then, I caught up on my Facebook, email, and the other blogs I normally follow.  Carl got up around 11:30ish, and we had lunch.  I had a leftover grilled chicken breast and some carrots.

Vlad was bored, bored, bored.  I was putting off going on a walk with him today because it was so cold.  At least, I thought it was cold outside.  I finally bundled up to walk the poor pup, and as soon as we set out I realized that it was actually nice outside!  I was way over-layed.  Vlad and I walked for about 30 minutes, and I listened to a New York Times book review podcast.  Lots of people in the neighborhood were out in their yards sprucing up gardens... at little early I think.

Later in the afternoon, I hit the treadmill.  Today is usually a rest day, but I'm going to have to shift my workout schedule a bit this week so I can have dinner with Suzie on Thursday night.  I'll workout today, and take Wednesday off instead so I can grocery shop that night, and then have Thursday night free to spend with Suz.  I really pushed myself today during my run, and ran at 6.8 mph.  I've never run that fast on the treadmill before.  It felt GREAT! :D  My legs are a bit sore now, but that means that I worked my body harder / differently - it's good to shake things up a bit!  I also did my strength training exercises.  I'm still watching Ghost Whisperer episodes - I'm really getting attached to the characters now. :)  Good series.

After my workout, I had a Honey Crisp apple with peanutbutter.  This is one of my most fav snacks.  I've been using Skippy Natural peanutbutter - very creamy.

I was going to do pork chops for dinner tonight, but changed my mind at the last minute.  All of a sudden a good homemade pizza, salad, and a beer sounded like it would hit the spot.  Carl brought us up some New Glarus, Spotted Cow beers from downstairs, and I prepped our usual Boboli lean beef pizza and salad.

Right now I'm drinking some delicious almond milk, and about to relax with yet another magazine!  Back to work tomorrow!
