cycling shoes

We finally get snow, I finally get cycling shoes, the baby finally gets an outfit, and my husband’s on a website??


A snowy and very cold Monday, but that didn’t stop Cole and I from heading to the gym.  Spin class (+12pts) was tough, I don’t know if it was because I hadn’t worked out for 2 days or what, but it was rough.

Pre-workout: 1 tsp of PB and 1/2 banana  1pt

Post-workout: leftover bagel and a Muscle Milk light  11pts

One of the heaters in my parents house went out so we had to wait around until the guy came to fix it.

Lunch: leftover 1/2C Santa Fe Chicken over 1/4C rice  3pts

It turned out the guy had to go back to Salt Lake to get a part and then bring it back up.  So Cole took a nap and I did some studying/gave up 5 minutes later and read a book.  So much for getting my class done before Keller gets home!

Snacked on some dried mangos (2pts) and after Cole woke up we went down to Salt Lake. Stopped at the cutest baby store to get a gift for baby Issac and couldn’t help myself.  Bought my first things for our baby boy, 2 outfits and an Angry Birds blanket (so stinking cute!).

We also picked up some cupcakes and dinner from Chipotle to take to Andrea, Bobby, Truman, and Issac.

Dinner: chicken burrito bowl…chicken, brown rice, fajita veggies, pico, a little bit of cheese, and guac on the side…1/2 serving of chips 10pts

Dessert: 1/4 of a cupcake, 1/4 of a cookie  5pts

We had a great time hanging out with them!


Cole didn’t wake up until 8am and wanted to watch Neckflix (that’s what he calls Netflix) in my bed until 9. Got up and finally and had some breakfast while skyping with Daddy.

Breakfast: Nature’s Path GF waffle and 1TBSP peanut butter  5pts

I was feeling really tired so I decided to do some prenatal yoga (+3pts).  Usually yoga makes me feel rejuvenated.  So I don’t know if it was because it was prenatal yoga and not the Vinyasa type I’m used to, but I felt more tired after then I did before.  Like so tired I wanted to crawl back into bed and eat a cinnamon roll, but I didn’t, instead I snacked on some dried mangos (2pts) and a coke zero…or 3.

I really wanted something sweet, baked, and smothered in frosting, so in an effort to contain myself I made my WW oatmeal cookies instead.  Started with 1:

ended at 4 (8pts). 😉  So yummy!

Lunch: leftover Chipotle mixed with a little Santa Fe chicken  6pts

Tuesday is our swim and taekwondo day or otherwise known as my 100 mile drive day.  Before we left for swimming I stopped by the mailbox and opened this…

I’m officially certified, yay for me.  And as my reward, I bought myself a pair of cycling shoes.  I have been wanting some forever, but made a deal with myself I wouldn’t get any unless I took and passed my test.

Snacked on some cheese and goldfish in the car between swimming and taekwondo.  I was still exhausted and had texted Heidi that I was in no mood to cook tonight, so instead, after buying my shoes, we just hung out and talked.  I helped her make protein pancakes for her family for dinner and they turned out to be a hit.  Her 6-y-o asked if he could have them 2 days in a row cause they’re “healthy”.  When we got home I ended up making myself one for dinner along with a green smoothie (6pts).  Best dinner ever!


Cole went back to school today after having MLK day off…hooray!  We didn’t quite make it there on time, but that’s ok cause he said he wanted to be late?  After I dropped him off I headed to spin (+12pts).  My hardcore teacher was sick so we had a sub.  She was good and I had a much better workout then I did on Monday.

Same pre-workout as Monday…1pt.

Post-workout: Protein pancake and green smoothie  6pts

Today was my hospital volunteer day.  Snacked on a Twizzler’s pull-n-peel, 2 Red Vines, and a chocolate covered caramel…oh yeah and 1/2 my protein bar (9pts).  The ironic thing is that I brought the Red Vines and Twizzler’s to get them out of my house so I WOULDN’T eat them…whateves.

I should have eaten the entire protein bar and not the candy cause by the time I got home I was starving.  And then I should have just had dinner, but instead ended up snacking on the following:  a few mango slices, a handful of nuts, and a cookie (8pts).

Dinner: leftover Santa Fe Chicken w/toast and multigrain chips…the chips were for Cole, but I made the mistake of having 1 and they are super delicious!  (9pts)…Cole asked if this is the last time he had to eat this…apparently I made a little too much 😉

Snack after dinner: 0

Interesting tidbit of the day…apparently my husband is on the homepage of a local nutrition shop website.  He didn’t even know, but our brother-in-law found it.  I guess what happened is they took an email that he wrote inquiring about some supplements as a testimonial.

He told me not to post it, but I was like rrrright.  And if he comes home from Afghanistan with an extra 10 pounds of muscle, I will be sending Charlie at Total Nutrition Austin a thank you note that they can use as MY testimonial!  It will read something like this…thank you for making my husband a sexy beast…think I could get a free t-shirt for that?  The website is:
