Gorgeous Sunday here, absolutely gorgeous! And I have to work LOL! Although it has been really slow, so I am getting stuff done around the house. Went to Panera Bread for our ritual bagel: Asiago cheese here:
Then grocery shopping. Lots and lots of good stuff, including some new Chobani greek yogurt flavors: Pomegranate and Pineapple. You’ll see those this week. I was so excited to find them. I think I embarassed John about how excited I was to find them. Or maybe it was my dancing to the store music 😀
And these were in and on sale!
So, I after some thinking and pondering, I decided that part of me is just being a baby about getting off the last bit of weight. It’s because I love food ( ya think??), and tend to not want to limit myself. I think the possibility of going to Cancun in January also makes me want to work a bit harder. I won’t have to do much, just trim back some of the extras for a bit (like those little cinnamon rolls!). In general, just tighten up the food. The exercise portion is totally fine. So, I decided I am going to give myself a challenge to lose 4 pounds during September. Those long-time followers know this is going to be hard, I am the turtle queen even when things are going well LOL!
Anyone want to join me in a personal challenge for September? It doesn’t have to be weight loss; it could be exercise, or eating more whole grains, keeping your desk free of clutter, or saying something positive to yourself each day. We can just check in once or twice a week here to be accountable.
Lunch was a deliciously sweet/tart kiwi with a grilled wrap stuffed with chicken and cheese spread and broccoli (yep, broccoli at lunch today, not dinner!).
John made up some homemade chocolate sauce, so I had to have some on my latte today. We have a squeeze bottle for it so I can make pretty patterns. For those curious, we drink 1% milk at home.
Met with one of my tenants today (the good one) and he gave his 30-day notice to leave as he is buying a house. I am a little bummed since he was such a great tenant. Always on time with the rent, very polite, etc. Will be speaking with the other tenant in a few days to see what he wants to do. If he wants to move, I will probably try putting it on the market, but I imagine he will get a room mate and stay. Anyone want to buy a house? LOL.
It was so nice out that I took a run before dinner. I just wanted to do 2 miles and hopefully get under 10 minutes for each mile.
Total time: 19:20 (9:40 per mile). I was pretty happy with that (and sweaty).
We were going to make a vegetarian chili for dinner, but I was hot and sweaty, and I wanted something lighter and cool for dinner. So yogurt, cereal, and berries it is!
Starting to get some fall blooms in the garden!
Mums will be blooming soon.
Question: Anyone up for a personal September challenge?
