Hair cuts and omelets!

Hey there!  Waving *hi* to all the new readers, there’s a lot!  Please say hi in the comments or send me an email 😀  Hope you stay for a spell.

The start of the weekend for me.  I actually slept until 7am this morning.  I decided to have a nice long workout today with an exercise buffet:

  • 20 minutes on the stationary bike (see, Debby??)

Lifting workout:

  • Chin ups:  1 set of 3, 1 set of 2, 1 set of 2
  • Barbell split squats:  3 sets of 8 at 65
  • Incline dumbbell chest press:  3 sets of 8 with 25# dumbbells
  • YTWL:  3 sets of 8 with 10# dumbbells
  • Lunges:  3 sets of 8 with 35# bar
  • Lat pull down:  3 sets of 10 at 60 pounds

Then I hit the treadmill for 2 miles of walking and 1 mile of running with speedwork.  It was nice knowing I didn’t have to hurry to get back to go to work!  John met me at the gym and he took me out for my football meal.  We went to Maude’s and we couldn’t have gotten there soon enough.  My arm was looking pretty tempting by this point.  I wanted a good protein hit, so I had a 3 egg cheese omelet.  I ate everything on this plate!

So. good.  We had some strange salt and pepper shakers at our table.

Not sure what’s going on at Prince Edward Island, but it can’t be good …..

This was a pretty late breakfast (1o am), so I never ended up eating lunch!  You know I don’t skip meals, but I also don’t want to eat just because. So, I got other errands done.

One of my New Year goals was to do something with my hair.  I haven’t had it cut in about 11 months, since I was trying to grow it out.  Well, not sure I was liking it, so I went and had it trimmed up and shaped.

This way I can decided to keep growing it, or cut it back to short again.  She took off probably 3 inches!  That’s a bit more than a trim.  I have to say that I love it 😀  When I got back, it was snack time!

Plus this:

Okay, 2 of those…..  This has not really been a stellar eating day.  I took some time catching up on emails and my google reader!  Whew.

I mentioned the word ‘pizza’ near dinner time, and John was all over that.  We walked to get a slice.  This place down the road has a deal for a drink and 2 slices for $4.50.  We each eat 1 slice because they are pretty big. Talk about a cheap date!  I usually bring my own bottle of water since I don’t drink fountain drinks.  I got in the requisite broccoli on my slice :mrgreen:


I am actually getting the protein powder post ready to go.  It will be up some time tomorrow.  Sorry for the delay!

Doing some R&R tonight.  I think Pixie has the right idea:

Giveaway for the Lose The Diet book ends on Sunday!

FYI: This was the charity I donated to for Haiti victims: Medical Teams International

Question:  Any fun plans for the weekend?

    Very nice haircut!

    No major plans for the weekend, but I think I’ll hit the gym again tomorrow and I’m kind of excited about that.

    Like you, I don’t know if the runner’s high is real, but I sure felt good doing a whole mile without stopping. Someday I’ll look forward to hitting six…can’t even fathom that now.

    I know I’ve mentioned this before, but your steel cut oats with banana, nut butter and chocolate chips looks SO GOOD…gotta find your recipe sometime for the nut butter. I’ll search your site more later. 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

      You’ll get there with the running. I never thought I would be doing 3 miles, let alone twice that!

      Nut butters are easy if you have a food processor. Just grind away until they become butter. It takes a long time, so just be patient.

    This must be the day for new ‘do’s! Did you check out Susan’s?! Yours looks stunning – very flattering 🙂

    Your pizza looks pretty scrumptious. I’ve never thought about putting broccoli on, but I’ll have to give it a try next time I make one at home!

    As for the weekend, no plans except to see The Book of Eli at some point. I love some Denzel!

    Good grief, Lori–You’re really challenging me! I did 10 minutes on the bike and thought I was doing good. It always seems harder to me to do the mechanical sports instead of the real thing. And then you went over and did all that treadmill work! Oh well, I guess its better to be challenged by your exercises than to be tempted by your food!

      I find the stationary riding to be much harder than real life riding, not sure why. These stationary bikes kind of hurt my back – so I don’t like to do them for long.

    I love your hair, it looks great on you, it makes your face look soft! Keep it this way: love it!

    Your meals look delicious as always, everyday you prove that eating healthy doesn’t have to mean you can’t eat delicious.

    Thanks for the tip on the compliment card, I’ve written one with 5 lines that are important to me and I will check my card every night before going to sleep and see what the score is. This was a really helpful tip, thanks!

    Love the hair!! We are totally twinsies 😀

    Broccoli is one of my favourite pizza toppings – carrot is really good too! (although I don’t recommend strawberries :P)

    I can actually say I’ve got fun things scheduled for the weekend! Including step class in an hour 😀

    I love your term of an “exercise buffet,” so much better than the alternative! The broccoli looks delish on that pizza, I need to try that! No big plans for the weekend for me! I plan on getting a workout in, relaxing, and reading for school. Sounds just perfect for me! 🙂 Have a good one!

    Your hair looks so cute! I like that you can still go either way with it once you decide.

    Broccoli pizza looks great. Love that you always get your broccoli in!

    No big plans for this weekend – my sons are heading back to college today. I’ve got plans to go running with my partner this afternoon – it’s been raining but supposed to stop. Hopefully we won’t be slogging through too many puddles!

    You are making me hungry…good thing my homemade flatbread pizza in the oven.

    The weekend? Started with Zumba this morning. First time…fun and uncoordinated! Not much the rest of the weekend. Gym, house, kids….
