Lazy Day

Posted by buffmuffy on August 18, 2009

Good evening everyone!

It is time for the official recap of the day.

For breakfast, I ran out the door with some Fig Newmans and my last bottle (*sniff sniff*) of Pom juice.


I then went to go get my oil changed, my front differential fluid changed, and my tires rotated.  I also changed my oil catch can.  With the car running a lot better, I went home and had lunch.

I had some leftover spaghetti and some salt and vinegar Popchips.  Love that flavour!


I laid around all day and watched television.  It was relaxing but also very boring.  I snacked on some Newman’s Own Organics dried fruit and some Newman’s Own Organics chocolate chocolate chip cookies, and I also had some “raspberry drink,” which Mike’s mom gave me.  It is a fermented drink made with raspberries, oranges, whey, sea salt, water, and coconut sugar I think.  I want to make some of my own.  She gave me some whey and coconut sugar to do so, so I’m excited for when I can do that!


Mike got home around 530pm and we went to Hyvee for some groceries.  I got about $30 worth of stuff, and he got around double that o.O lol.

Anyway, we cooked dinner together.  He made a bag of Bertolli (steak, portabello, linguine type) and I made up a salad.  In the salad, a mixed iceberg and romaine and then added a heated stirred egg (before it coagulated), cherry tomatoes, a cut up roma tomato, lemon juice, sea salt, and pepper.  The salad was not bad on its own, but Mike added dressing.  I would have added feta cheese and greek dressing if I could!


This meal was delicious.  I had some organic blue tortilla chips on the side.

And then I had some more with my favorite salsa (though I have to say that Jason’s Deli salsa that comes with their blue chips was spectacular).


Not long after, I went out on a long walk.  I didn’t take anything but my ipod, but from my normal route and how much extra I walked, I would assume I went at least 6 miles.  My legs are a little tired but not much.  It felt good to get out.

Tomorrow I need to deposit some money in the bank and go running, but that is all I have on my to-do list.  I do need to figure out my textbook situation as well, but I may wait on most of them after the first week of classes.  I didn’t even really need my books last time, and I’m thinking I might be able to get by without two of them.  That will save me 75-85$ each book.  I also need to get a backup set of makeup for when I stay the nights, as well as a pillow case.  That will be expensive as I wear bare minerals!  Agh!

Anyway, I don’t work til 8pm tomorrow so I’ll be blogging sometime before then 🙂  It has been a nice 6 days off.

    Thank you for your comment on my post about body fat! That was so informative, I really had no idea about the ranges for essential, athletic, and normal. I really appreciate the info! And knowing what I know how, I will definitely re-evaluate my goals. Thank you.
