Today was a full day expending a lot of calories. I had my fantastic workout this morning (in fact, I already feel like I’m going to be sore tomorrow) and then I spent the rest of the day running around town doing errands. I don’t think I sat still once today.
When I finally got home, feeling exhausted, Michael suggested a nap. I just couldn’t do it! It was sooo sunny and nice outside. And I know the next 10 days straight are going to be filled with rain. So I convinced Michael to go for a walk. We walked for a little over an hour through the neighborhood, catching up on our prospective days and talking about a friend’s upcoming wedding. I burned 260 calories from walking. Here’s some flowers I found along the way:
The sun was warm and beautiful. But to be honest, I was starting to feel dead on my feet. Michael was too (he golfed 9 holes this morning). We made Turkey Burgers for dinner (I had a side of steamed broccoli with Goddess Dressing) and sat down to watch “24″ and “Modern Family.”
So where is the chocolate, you ask? Oh let me tell you….
I baked up some miniature chocolate chips cookies (they are so much better fresh!) and we had a serving of vanilla ice cream.
The ice cream is Dreyer’s Slowed Churned–which I love because it tastes good but also because it’s so low in calories! That’s a winner in my book.
One of my favorite “diet friendly” desserts is a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with fresh, chopped strawberries. I can’t wait for strawberries to be back in season! Now….it’s 8:00pm on a Saturday night. I’m utterly exhausted. Time to crawl into bed with Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Committed” until I fall asleep. Have a great night!
