Work = Blah!

So today was just one of those days... work seemed to drag on FOREVER! -  I thought I was going to lose my mind.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a much better & quicker day! :]

Daily Food Journal:
Lunch- Subway (AGAIN... gosh It's becoming a pattern)  I got the usual: a turkey sub on 9-grain wheat, no cheese, extra lettuce, tomato, & lite mayonnaise. 
Dinner- I made broccoli and cheese stuffed baked chicken breast.  I got the recipe from a fellow blogger- it was delicious :]
Dessert- Strawberry Slushy (1/2 cup fresh strawberries, half cup sugar free lemonade, & a 1/2 tray of ice cubes)

The other day I saw the movie Julie & Julia.  It was pretty cute & it inspired me to become a better cook.  I am going to make a strong effort to make healthy dinners each night for my family & I.  I am going to go through weight watchers cookbooks & any other healthy cookbooks/recipes I can get my hands on.  Wish me luck [or better yet- wish my family the best as they will be the taste testers... a.k.a. my guinea pigs :]

So I didn't work out today, but I did tons of shopping- does that count?  I am going to be joining the Wisconsin Athletic Club.  It's about 2 minutes from my house & is extremely nice!  They offer a ton of free group classes, indoor and outdoor swimming pools & all of the usual workout equipment.  I'm most excited to try out the spin class :]  Membership also comes with 2 free sessions with a personal trainer, so I plan on taking advantage of that as well to get me off on the right track.  They also have a 24 hour facility, which is only about 10 minutes from me.  It will be quite convenient for long work/school days!

I'm super excited everything seems to be falling into place :]
Goodnight All. Sweet Dreams!


  1. Hi Katie - It looks like we are starting the healthy you challenge together. I just wanted to introduce myself to you and hope we stay in touch. You blog looks really interesting and I look forward to following it!

  2. Welcome to the Healthy You Challenge! Looking forward to getting to know you and seeing your progress. I have habit of eating a lot of Subway, which would be just fine, but it's a lot more expensive than making my own sandwich. I've recently started doing the spinning class at my gym, and I really like them.
