Stayed up way too late last night. But it was fun hanging out with Chuck while the kids are gone. It's so quiet around here. I wonder how I'll handle an empty nest when the time comes.
Breakfast: oatmeal with blueberries, Bartlett pear Australian yogurt, walnuts & pumpkin seeds I could not eat it all but it was very good.
Now I'd like to introduce you to two things that totally kicked my butt:
Meet EA Sports Active for Wii. Works both upper and lower body. I changed the band to a more resistant one and now my arms shake while doing the exercises. Excellent.
Now meet Leslie Sanson's Walk Away The Pounds 4 Mile Super Challenge. Doesn't seem difficult. You have 4 basic moves and there's no dancing or jumping around but I burn 700-800 calories when I do it. Not bad!
Guess who's on the cover of Self Magazine for July. Jillian Michaels! I know, I know. You either love her or hate her. I'm in the love her camp. Whatever you may feel about her, she gets great results. In this issue she opens up and we see that though Jillian is hard and crunchy on the outside, she's soft and sweet on the inside. Kind of like a Skittle.
I sure would like to meet her. Oh, how about that?! Self is giving away lunch with Jillian in LA! Just go to Self.com and register for a chance. While there you can also sign up to receive daily exercise tips from Ms. Shred herself. Plus there is the Great 1-Month Slimdown exercises to try. Jill had to lose 60 pounds and she shows you how to drop 8 pounds in a month. I'd love to be 8 pounds lighter.
Lunch: leftover Thai Lime Chicken and Spinach Rice
For dinner my sweety took me on a casual date to Mooyah. Stupid burgers are so darn good. I got the junior one this time. I wonder if he liked me. I hope he asks me out again. ;-)
Afterwards we went grocery shopping then home then to bed. I wish we were independently wealthy so he could stay home or could work from home. Why is The Man always trying to keep us down? LOL
OH! Got some great samples from Amazing Grass so you'll be seeing that a lot in the days to come.
