I park in the furthest parking spot - 30? 50 calories? maybe.
I take a lunch time walk - 100 calories?
Clean the kitchen - 90? 100?
Chop veggies and cook dinner - who knows but it's something!!
Can I go there?............bedroom activities.................lol.............I can't help it! Burning calories is ALWAYS on my mind. hahahaha
Here are a few ways to burn 100 calories from the article, "20 Ways To Burn 100 Calories"
- Dance around the house for 20 minutes - try getting your kids involved! Lifting up the babies can burn a few more.
- Vacuum for 25 minutes - that's a long time to vacuum if you have a small house but hey, your carpets will be spotless and you will have burned some calories doing it!
- Spend 30 minutes gardening - I so wish I had a yard with a garden!!
- Wash your car for 30 minutes - don't say it doesn't need it. It always needs it.
- Spend 30 minutes window shopping - Now that's something we can ALL do! Add a few bags to your arms and now you're strength training. ha!
I am constantly looking for ways to burn a few extra. All it takes is a bunch of small actions to make up one big change. Everything counts towards the bigger picture!!
So, anyway, I'm BACK! We are home and my angel is doing SO Much better. Once again, thank you for the love and prayers regarding her health!!

The day before we left the hospital I walked by the mirror and I literally looked 4 months pregnant and I could have cried. Thankfully, I have an incredible Weight Watchers leader who cares enough about me to call me and talk me through it!! She is simply the best.
I have been back on track though since we got home and I'm feeling good!! I was recovering from the germs that I had caught in the hospital so I hadn't worked out until yesterday but I have been making all the right food choices! I made a slammin' linguini with spinach and sun dried tomatoes dish the other night. Here's the link for the recipe. I figured it to be 7 PP's .
|here is my version :)|
It's so easy to cook, just not easy to cut:
Cut it length wise
Spray with olive oil
Sprinkle with salt and pepper
Bake on 400 for 45 minutes.
Bing, bang, boom - you got yourself a healthy and delicious side dish or meal!
Yesterday I got back on track with my working out. Since my Insanity calendar got completely messed up with being in the hospital, I decided to hang tight on it for just a little bit and enjoy some Turbo Fire instead. I missed my soul mate workout!! So I got it in with my fav, Fire 45 in the morning. In the afternoon I went for a 2 mile walk. Last night I had planned a 3rd workout but ended up with a terrible earache!!!
Is it me or is greasy, fried, sugary, fattening food just not appealing anymore?
|this does NOT look appetizing to me.....it looks like I would feel like a blimp after I ate it|
|heart attack waiting to happen|
|THIS on the other hand, looks like Heaven!!|
I'm off to school for the day...
