Twelve Hours

It’s going to be a good day y’all!!! Just because I say so :-).

It may have something to do with the twelve hours of sleep I got last night. Yep, that is right…12 hours!!! The sad thing is that still doesn’t make up for all the hours I missed from the previous two nights. Goodness, I was an exhausted mess because after I came home from the gym and ate dinner, I literally passed out. And I have the best husband EVER because he cleaned up and puts the kids to bed and just let me sleep the night away.

That is LOVE, my friends! 🙂

Even though I felt like poo most of yesterday, I did manage to make it to the gym. I didn’t push it though and stuck to just a couple miles of running. Besides, I haven’t run in what feels like forever so I wanted to take it easy. And I did.

I was dreading the gym because I figured I would have a hard time getting a treadmill but shockingly, there was only one other person on one. I am certainly not complaining, but where were all of the New Year Resolution makers?

I don’t know, but they sure did miss out because the gym had a basketful of Justin’s samples and coupons they were giving away. That is motivation enough for me to make it back. I want to snag a couple more before the week is up!!

The not so good news from last night…..Lentil Walnut Apple Loaf.

It was a bomb.


It was edible as far as I was concerned(just don’t ask my family) but it wasn’t something I was excited to eat. It was mushy which I was NOT expecting. Oh well, not all recipes can be winners.

I did manage to eat a piece, with extra glaze on top(cause that part was good) along with a spinach salad.



After my restful night of sleep, I got up this morning and made myself the most delicious cup of coffee. I even took an extra minute to froth some milk to go on top.



After getting in a great workout, courtesy of Billy Blanks, Tae-Bo Bootcamp, I fueled myself up with a delicious and healthy(but freezing cold, brrrrr) green smoothie.


This week one of my main focuses is going to be on getting in lots of green veggies. While I like salads I am not always in the mood for them so loading greens into smoothies is a great way to make sure I get them in.

I think I am going to go hop into a steamy hot bath(my favorite) to warm up and then hit up Costco or Trader Joe’s for some good groceries. I sure hope y’all have as good a day as the one I plan on having!!


Has your gym been busier since the New Year began?

What is your favorite way to incorporate green veggies into your diet?

  1. Yay for green smoothies!! Glad your feeling better–and love the attitude. Today is going to be a great day!!

    I’m heading out to TJ’s today, too. Time to restock on some healthy eats now that New Year’s is over. I tried shopping on the morning of NYE–bad idea. The store was mobbed! I’m hoping the crowds have finally cleared. 🙂

  2. When I first read what you wrote about the loaf, I thought you said “It was THE bomb”. I was thinking “Cool – I’m going to try that”. Good thing I read it again!

  3. I read it at The bomb too! Too bad it didn’t work out 😦
    Gald you’re feeling better!

  4. Good for you for making it to the gym! A quick sweat usually helps me feel better. Bummer about that lentil loaf… A mushy loaf definitely doesn’t sound appetizing.

  5. I’m jealous of your empty gym! Mine has been packed with people who will quit after two weeks.

  6. Yay for:

    1. Feeling better
    2. Getting in a run
    3. Sample packets of Justin’s AB
    4. Wonderful husbands
    5. Grocery shopping
