Happy Monday!!!! Did you have as much trouble as I did getting back into the work week groove today??? Thank goodness for coffee is all I can say!
I think this crazy weather is partly to blame for my Monday blues. Like I mentioned last week it has been snow, snow, and more snow here in Virginia. We were pretty much snowed in for several days straight. That can start to drive a girl crazy…. Exhibit A-
Luckily on Saturday morning I got a bit of a reprieve. Even though there was another big snow on the way we made the slow icy trip to Target (lame I know) just to get out of the house for a bit. Have you ever wondered what the Target parking lot looks like in snow storm?? Well wonder no more. 😉
After being stuck indoors for days on end this seriously felt like Christmas morning. I was way too happy to be buying tape, DVDs and juice. I needed nothing and yet managed to spend $60.00. I am pretty sure Target is a witch.
Since we were already out and about the hubs and I headed downtown for an early lunch and human contact. There are loads of people who live downtown so it was actually pretty busy Saturday and nice to be social.
I got to bust out my knitted UGGs which is always a good time. I don’t care how much that trend dies down- I will always have a special place in my heart for UGGs. #Basic 😉 And speaking of UGGs I had a little NSV- Non Scale Victory this weekend. My boots slipped up over my calves like a champ and stayed put! No jerking them up every five minutes because they had no choice but to buckle under the pressure of my chubby calves. It was a nice feeling- one of many to come I hope!
After lunch we really had no choice but to go home. Ice was on the way and we didn’t want to risk being safe for a few minutes out. We may have hit a wine store downtown to stock up before the journey home though. And remember that cabin fever I was talking about? It causes a serious case of the sillies which means laughing like fools at your “wine chilling system” in the yard.
Sunday the hubs and I decided to be productive on our last “snow day”. We cleaned our little house tippy top to bottom and I made a hearty and healthy dinner of apricot chicken, green beans, and brown rice. Not a bad way to end the weekend!
I made it a point to track every bite this weekend and stay within my allotted Points Plus range. While my workouts have been a bit on the sad side I am looking forward to this week’s weigh in and really really looking forward to getting back to regular workouts!
As for tonight I am off to create a new Black Bean and Corn Fritter Recipe! Until Next Time!!
