Don't knock the weather. If it didn't change once in a while, 9 out of 10 people couldn't start a conversation. ~ KH

This weather is just crazy!  On Friday I was able to do my 4 mile run in yoga pants and a long sleeve t-shirt then today (Tuesday) it snowed!  I mean it's wasn't like a blizzard or anything but we definitely got 2+ inches.  One thing that bothered me a little bit though was all of my teacher friends on Facebook.  Actually I'm not sure I'd even call them my friends, it's mostly just the people I "know."  Anyway, all last night there were status' like "hoping for a snow day" and then this morning it was all "yay, a snow day."  I'm sure it's partially that I'm bitter because I very rarely get a snow day but seriously, did teachers not just have a 3 or 4 day weekend for President's Day; is another day off really necessary?
Because of the wet weather I chose a more relaxed OOTD.  The sweater dress is from Express with a black tank underneath from New York & Company.  I got the leggings, watch and boots at Macy's.  That's the same necklace I've been wearing from Etsy, I tried to pick something different but nothing seemed to work...
I had zero desire to go to Zumba after work and was hoping Angela would let me off the hook.  But if that happened I wasn't sure what kind of workout Joe & I would get in at home.  I wanted to keep my calories super low just in case I needed to stay in the 1200 range for the day.  Instead of choosing a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch which tends to be one of my higher calorie weekday breakfasts I went with a greek yogurt and a sliced banana = 295 calories; I also had a glass of Trop 50 but drank it with my pills before I decided what to eat.
The drive to work was uneventful.  The main roads were totally clear and most of the side roads had packed snow but nothing dangerous.  Once I got to work is when the real issues started, the construction guys must be painting because the fumes are so strong we were all flying a little high.  Luckily I didn't get a migraine, that would have been such a waste of an imitrex.  I was happy to be able to get out of the office to run and grab lunch.  I went to Wawa again for another salad (= 315 calories), I should have just grabbed two yesterday.  Unfortunately, I also ran out of gift cards so I had to pay $2 out of pocket.
I was excited to learn that my coworker had purchased an entire case of smartfood popcorn for the office!  I got to have another 100 calorie bag as a snack!
I also grabbed peanut m&m's (= 124 calories) two at a time on and off all afternoon.  Luckily they're almost gone so I won't have to fight the urge much longer.
After reading Angela's blog and seeing that she wasn't in any mood to go to Zumba either I made plans to play wii sports with Joe after dinner.  He had a busy day off and wasn't home when I pulled up after work so I went to visit with Nicole & Jack for a little while.  Once the guys got home we all debated what to do for dinner, go out, order in, eat leftovers or cook something fresh.  We decided on a mixture of two, we brought over our leftovers and Nicole made some Chicken Piccata.  I had two pieces of chicken (super yummy, I really need to learn to cook more grown up foods) and a scoop of mashed sweet potato = 492 calories.
We invited them back to our house after dinner to play wii sports with us but it was getting close to Jack's bedtime and they're not really big video game players to begin with so they didn't end up coming over.  After playing around on our phones/laptop for a little while we decided to get off our butts and burn some calories.  We started with boxing, which I won, thanks in part to Thursday night's kickboxing classes!  It moved too quickly to take a picture of though so I have no photographic proof.  I almost broke a sweat punching like a wild woman and my shoulder was on fire.  We moved on to tennis were Joe handed me ass to me, as usual.
Next we decided to take it easy and do some bowling.  Apparently I'm good at bowling, I beat Joe both games!  Finally we switched to baseball, Joe's favorite, he always does very well and I was pleasantly surprised that I actually managed to hit 3 home runs!  That's a record for me!
We played for about an hour and had a really nice time.  It was great spending the evening just hanging out and being goofy.  We watched a couple of shows on the DVR (Smallville, No Ordinary Family & How I Met Your Mother) before heading up to bed.

How did I do on my February goals?
1. Read 2 books:  no reading for me...not looking good for this goal...
2. Burn at least 750 calories a day for at least 20 days: 2083 burned - 1326 eaten = 757 burned, 17 days total
3. 1000 fitness minutes, not allowed to count walking at the restaurant: 60 minutes today, 990 total for month
4. Eat 1 fruit or veggie with each meal for at least 20 days: banana w/breakfast, salad for lunch, nothing w/dinner, 9 days total
5. 10 spend free days - spent $2 at lunch, 10 days total (goal met)...on a related note I showed Joe some yoga pants on sale with free shipping & he shot me down, numerous times...I'm trying very hard not to be bitter...

  1. I had the best workout ever last night after a 2 hour nap. I felt so horrible yesterday! Very glad we skipped Zumba. I think I might start going to the 7:00 class on Thursdays since you have kick those nights. Glad you had a nice night with Joe!
