Friday May 28th-
WEEK EIGHT OFFICIALLY CROSSED OFF!
For those of you that are going to the movies tonight, I would definitely recommend Sex and the City 2. Last night me, whit, our oldest sister and brother(both in their 20’s) and his wife went to opening night. This is the first good movie that I have seen a LONG time. If you need a laugh then this is the movie for you to go and see. Everyone agreed that this movie was definitely funnier than the last, but people around us were saying that they could relate to the first movie more. Also everyone agreed that the movie could have done without the sex scenes. They are just awkward to watch and nobody wants to see it!
While Whit and I waited for our sister Karstee to get home, we were starting to get really hungry so we decided to split an 18 rabbits bar for a light snack.
Here are the nutritional stats…
and the story behind this company
Look how BIG it is!
Here was the intention for making this bar:
“Haute Diggity Date was created to give our road bike friends extra energy to get up those hills across the Golden Gate Bridge.”
**VERDICT: This bar was so incredibly soft that it reminded me of a homemade chewy granola bar right out of the oven! It was so awesome, I loved the big pecan pieces 🙂
When she finally arrived home we left the house right away so that we could pick up sandwiches from Which Wich? before the movie. Since it was about 5:30 there was tons of traffic, so it took about 30 minutes to get there. I got the buffalo chicken on wheat, and Whit got the Caprese. I love this place. You just walk in grab a bag and write down everything you want on it, then you give it to the people to make. It is so much easier than Subway! Shortly after we rushed to the movie. It was such a fun night 🙂
This morning Whit and I awoke from another 10 glorious hours of sleep! We had a blueberry western bagel and some pear slices.
Mmm nothing like PB & J in the morning 😉
The pear slices had flaxseed almond butter drizzled over the top.
Man…. I am so exhausted from today. We were literally shopping all day. My feet, legs, back and everything is killing me. Our mom took us to Park Meadows mall to pick out our homecoming dresses for next year. That is right we always get our dresses about a week before the school year is out. Ladies still in middle or high school this is the time to buy your homecoming/ prom dress. Macy’s, Nordstom, and Dillards mark down all of their dresses, and there are hundreds still to pick from. We ended up spending 7 1/2 hours there and both found a homecoming dress. Unfortunately none of the prom dresses fit because we are too short. So I guess we are just going to have to go back again and find one that can easily be altered.
Does anybody else have a problem finding a prom dress that fits?
Our mommy bought our dresses, so we bought her lunch at Subway before the long ride back home.
Just when we thought the shopping ended there, Whit and I still had to grocery shop for the family. So about another two hours of walking around shopping, and we were finally able to come home and relax. There was no need for a workout today because for one we normally take the day off on Friday, and two we probably burned a zillion calories with all of that walking today.
It was 91 degrees in Colorado today, so something cold for dinner was a MUST! We had green monsters with a classic pb and pumpkin wrap 🙂
This monster was not as thick since we used the bananas we picked up today since there were no frozen ones 😦
This meal never fails to satisfy!
Ok now on to Summer Shape up. If you are like us and do not really like to work out on Friday’s then make it something fun. Go shopping like we did, go for a bike ride, do a dance video, jump on a trampoline, go outside and do the kid things that you used to do like jump rope/pogo stick/ roller blade/ ect. All that matters is that you at least DO SOMETHING. With the holiday weekend coming up, most pools are opening up so have a BBQ and go swimming with your family! Or maybe even a game of basketball/ volleyball outside. When you are doing something with your family and working out, the equation is complete. After this weekend, I want to hear back from you guys about what you did to get moving!
Now on to the meal plan of the day- If you are looking to feel good/ energetic, then here is a sample day for you:
-1 whole-wheat bran muffin topped with 1t nut butter (cashew, peanut, or almond)
– ½ cup canned pineapple chunks in juice
-1 cup low-fat milk, steamed and flavored with cinnamon and ½ t of sugar. Cinnamon enhances sweet flavors, so you’ll find you need less to get the same taste effect!
-Zesty grilled cheese sandwich: 2 slices whole-wheat bread, 2 tbs cheddar cheese, 1 small green pepper, 1 medium sliced tomato. Use a sandwich toaster or non-stick pan (can be prepared the night before and reheated in the microwave at work).
-1½ cups canned tomato soup
-Coleslaw Salad: Combine 1/3 cup grated carrots, 1/3 cup grated cabbage, 1 tablespoon raisins, 2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste
-Water or diet decaffeinated soda drink
-Mango Chutney Chicken: Top a 4 1/2 oz. grilled chicken breast with a mixture of 3 tablespoons chutney and ¼ cup diced mango
– ½ cup steamed fresh green beans
-1 cup lettuce with 1 tablespoon low-fat dressing
-1 small muffin and ½ cup fresh strawberries
Snack(whenever you need it)
1 cup air-popped popcorn
Will I am off to bed, I have work at 6 tomorrow instead of 8! Have a good night 🙂
