This was my first Saturday off with nothing planned in a really long time; how late do you think I slept? 10? 11? Yeah, I was bright eyed and bushy tailed at 8am. I'd actually prefer it that way though, whenever I do manage to sleep that late I feel like I've wasted half my day. Joe had plans to help John move some furniture before he went to work so we headed out for breakfast right away. We met John there so he and Joe could leave straight from the restaurant. Rob & Angela were up and about too so they joined us all at Towne & Country. Here's my ham & swiss omelet with tomato & rye toast. I didn't eat anywhere close to the whole thing which is odd for me, I can usually put away some breakfast food = 520 calories.
After breakfast, Angela & I made plans to meet up around 11 to do our 5 mile run. This would be my furthest distance so far... I went home for a few hours to digest, watched some of my "crap shows" as Joe calls them (wedding reality & teen drama) on the DVR and messed around on the computer.
I know the map & stats above are probably a little hard to see but it was the best way I could find to upload the information from sportypal. We headed out a little closer to noon then 11 but the weather wasn't too bad. I would have liked a little more sun and a little less wind but I guess that's what happens when you choose to run outside. We did the 5 miles in just under an hour. We planned on keeping our pace around or under 12 minutes per mile and we ended up at 11.28! I'm not going to lie, it was hard; we stopped and walked a little bit on 3 separate occasions. But we also burned almost 600 calories, so awesome! We're doing 6 miles this coming weekend...wish me luck. As a treat we stopped at Starbucks on the way home, shocker I know, Angela & I at Starbucks... We split a chicken salad sandwich = 205 calories.They were giving away samples of their Starbucks VIA Cinnamon Spice ready brew, my god it was so good. A whole cup of it is 60 calories so I've decided not to count the little mini cup I tried because I didn't eat the crusts of bread on the sandwich, I figure it evens out...
Of course I had my favorite tall skinny cinnamon dolce latte = 90 calories.We hung out at Starbucks for probably an hour eating, drinking & chatting before heading home to clean up. Joe & I had both recently noticed that the cats weren't smelling their freshest. It makes sense because I hadn't bathed them since...I don't even remember...maybe October... Anyway, I decided now was as good a time as any & in the shower they went. Now my cats smell clean & they're so nice and soft.
After we were all dried off & beautiful I went over to see Shana's new appliances. They had just been delivered that morning and she was excited to show them off. Since we are such good little jewish girls we were extremely happy to see her refrigerator's sabbath mode. I'm not positive of all the details I think it maybe shuts down to very low power for sabbath and alerts you if things are getting too warm so you can make arrangements...
I forgot to take a picture of the outside of the house when I got there and it was too dark when I left. But at least I remembered to take a picture of Shana "working." She made sure to put on all of her protective gear before helping Bill put the heater cover back on.
We were all starting to get hungry around 7 so we made plans to meet Joe at the Hi Point for some wings & beer. I had a small tossed salad with ranch dressing first so that I wouldn't go too crazy on the wings = 123 calories.
I ended up eating 6 of the dry chicken wings with scampi sauce = 863 calories. I was shocked! The Hi Point's wings are really big but seriously 144 calories each?!?!
The plan was to head back to Shana & Bill's new house after dinner so Joe could finally see it but it was close to 9:30 when we finished eating and we were all too tired, he'll have to visit another time. I'm pretty sure we just went home & straight to bed after that, Sunday was shaping up to be a pretty long day.
