<-- My new dress! It was an early Christmas present from my Mom :-)
Today is my Friday cheat day. I have not exercised but I did dance today. I wouldn’t call it a work out but I did get my heart beat going! I had green tea with lemon first thing this morning and am half way through my water jug. Yesterday I ended up having 6 cups of green tea! Today I have only had 2 cups. I had coffee after my tea this morning and missed breakfast. My Mom and I went out for lunch. I drank water and had a small salad with fish & French fries. I had a can of Healthy Choice soup for dinner. The split pea kind is so satisfying! Healthy Choice soups are on sale this week for 88 cents a can. I went and got about 20 of them today lol. I got half split pea and the other half is chicken dumpling; the 2 best kinds! 88 cents is a good deal because usually they are like $3 something a can and when they go on sale it’s usually 2 for $4. My receipt said I saved $50! I am going to pick up some more tomorrow along with a few other things. It’s pretty tight right now with Christmas coming up so I’ll be eating soup for a while! I am going to also pick up a couple loafs of wheat bread and jam because I am going to start to have toast with jam for breakfast. I don’t know why I haven’t done that before. For some reason I have been stuck in the mindset that I can only have oatmeal, cereal or eggs and toast for breakfast. lol
I have been thinking on moving my treadmill upstairs from the basement. The environment is so much nicer up here than down there. I think I could get myself to work out better if I had it somewhere where I can watch TV or listen to music on our surround sound vs. our crappy boom box. The only thing is I don’t know where I could fit it up here. It doesn’t fold up or anything and it’s not the prettiest looking ha-ha. I will figure it out!
