I started using Fitness Pal a few weeks ago to log in everything I ate and any working out I did.  I was doing great, until I twisted my foot last Monday.  I walked out of my car and stepped into a hole, my right foot bent & I almost fell~I even heard a ‘pop’!  OMG! My first day of work & I get hurt, leave it to me!! Anyway, I spent most of the day feeling just fine, until about 3pm when I went to get up.  I saw stars!! I couldn’t even walk, I was limping so bad.  Since my daughter had gymnastics that night, I wasn’t able to actually look at my foot until I got home at 9pm.  It was swollen…bad!! Hubby wrapped it, put an ice pack on it and told me to leave it on all night….no jogging for me tonight!!!  Around 1am I woke up with a throbbing pain, so I took some Advil and went back to sleep.  When I woke up in the morning, I was able to walk.  My ankle still hurt, actually it still hurts today, but I could walk just no jogging and no long walks.  Good thing is I sit most of the day, so I was fine.  A whole week went by of doing nothing….all the progress I was making on the treadmill was gone!  Then the weekend, and not just any weekend-Super Bowl weekend… other words, eat whatever I want weekend…not good at all!! 
After all that, its no surprise that my weigh in today was extremely depressing….I’m up 2 lbs!  WTF!!! I gained 2lbs, aaaahhhhh…..I really want to scream.  I was good yesterday and I plan on being extra good today.  I even plan on squeezing in a 30 minute walk/jog before the high school parent council meeting that I have to attend tonight.  If it wasn’t because they are discussing 2013-2014 registration, I would be skipping it.  I’m really not in the mood to drive all the way there an hour after getting home from work….but I have no choice. 

I just hope to actually get on that treadmill tonight, if only for 30 minutes. I need to start seeing good progress on my FitnessPal.

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.

So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.
