A case of the Mondays

Sorry it has been days since my last post.

On the exercise/eating/weight front, I have been doing my best to keep my calorie counts low and my exertion high.  This morning I was 130.8 and was unable to go to the gym because of a 6-inch snowfall.  Tomorrow, I am going to go early, run at least a 5k before my class and then sweat it out in my bursting class.  Hopefully, by Wednesday I will be just under 130 and feel a bit better about myself.

Today, I had soy yogurt with a kiwi, some strawberries and a sprinkling of rice crispies on top.  I snacked on some Trader Joe's peanut butter-filled pretzels, but I've safely stashed them away so they will no longer tempt me.  I have go to work soon anyway, and I will just bring my stash of healthy drinks (green tea, water, and a low cal/low sodium instant miso packet).  For dinner, I will probably have broccoli slaw or a big bowl of air-popped popcorn.

Yesterday, I spent the entire afternoon picking up a beautiful china cabinet from my godfather and cleaning my room and getting the furniture arranged.  I am using the cabinet as my dresser and it is fabulous!  It fits all of my clothes, dvds, jewelry box, and toiletry items.  Yes, I know it clashes with the wall color, but I plan on re-finishing it this summer and soon I am going to put fabric behind the doors.


I plan on painting it sort of like the dresser on the left and putting fabric like the armoire on the right, if that makes sense...

  

Now, I am searching for a floor mirror - the kind that swivels on a stand, but clearly I don't have $300 for one... so craigslist, here I come!

Enough of my rambling - I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.  Try to fill your tummies with health fruits and vegetables today and keep strong and focused... we can do this together
