Today was my first day back to work since Christmas (and by back to work I mean walking downstairs in my pajama’s and turning my computer on). But it was and still is hard to get back into the swing of things. I work tomorrow and then a half day on Friday and then I’m off again until next Tuesday! After having a cookie and coffee for breakfast (AGAIN), I toyed with the notion that I would just get back in my work/workout/eating healthy routine next week. Then after hearing literally 15 weight loss commercials (can you say New Year’s resolutions) I told myself enough was enough and that I needed to jump back into REALITY!
After knocking through a TON of work today with no interruptions (it’s nice when everyone else is still on vacation), it was time to face when I had been putting off since last Friday….
Please note I did hang a different piece of artwork by the dreadfmill to make it appear as if I am outside when I am on it (no help)!
I got in 45 minutes of alternating between fast walking at 4.2 and running at 6.0. It wasn’t my usual sweat session but it was enough and I felt really good when I was done! I decided to keep up the good work and for dinner I made myself a chicken breast and spinach salad.
Angela’s Healthy Spinach Salad:
2 cups of baby spinach
Sliced tomato, onion, cucumber
1 hard boiled egg
2.5 ounces of baked chicken breat
2 Tsp. Light Honey Mustard Dressing
After dinner Mike and I had a date in our basement with our WII to dance!
Between “Michael Jackson the Experience” and “Just Dance 2” we danced, laughed and competed for alittle over an hour! I pretty much creamed Mike in every dance… right Mike (I’m player two:)!!!
Are you back in the swing of things or still on vacation mode?
I’m trying to get there day by day. Gotta LOVE vacation’s though:)!
