Sunny State of Mind



Hump Day!

Hello and Happy Hump Day! 🙂 My Wednesday has been steadily busy. Just the way I like it. Not so slow that the day seems to drag on and not so busy I feel overwhelmed with everything I need to get done. It’s a good balance. Today I worked as usual. The morning went by slower than I had hoped, but after lunch the hours seemed to fly! If we are not too busy doing maintenance, my supervisor allows me to go the gym for one hour during work. The regulation states that work will give you one hour (if time allows) and you give up 1/2 hour of your personal time. I love food and do not normally like giving up my feasting time, so I usually go at the end of the day. Yesterday I went over lunch and i was a starvin marvin when it was all said and done. Today, however, I went at the end of the day. I took my “Wednesday’s Flat Belly” and “Belly Off Club” worksheets I printed from the Women’s Health Magazine website and was ready to tackle the gym.

Today’s workout worksheets consisted of abs and legs. After I completed my warm-up routine and worksheets I hit the treadmill for a quick 1.2 mile run at 6.5 speed. It felt great! I was contemplating a body attack (free weights/abs) class tonight at 6:45 and decided to cook dinner and clean instead.

Dinner menu: stuffed bell peppers for one!
The concoction I came up with for the “stuffing”:
~ 99% fat-free ground turkey seasoned with Lawrey’s, garlic salt, and pepper
~ black beans left over from Monday night fajitas
~ Jason’s mom’s homemade stewed tomatoes
~ chopped black olives
~ chopped onion
~ chopped mushrooms
~ 1/2 slice swiss cheese


It definitely hit the spot! And it was so easy even I didn’t screw it up! 🙂 I am not a very good cook, but I am learning. My fiance’ is a great cook. He has taught me a lot and he is always willing to let me experiment in the kitchen. Also, I have read a TON of health blogs for food, health, and blogging tips. So I get some recipe/cooking tips there as well. I need all the help I can get in the cooking department!! So far I have not bombed any meals. *Knock on wood*.

The rest of my night consisted of cleaning, laundry, and hanging with Twix. She is still in lazy kitty recovery mode and doing great! 🙂 I do not necessarily enjoy cleaning, but I LOVE when the homestead is clean. The smell, the scenery, and how much better I feel when the house is clean makes my day a little better. It’s so nice relaxing. So relaxing, in fact, that I thought I would enjoy the scenery with a little cocktail. My choice for the night was a vodka and orange juice. YUM!!

Time to relax with my drink and watch the new episode of TOSH.0! His show is HI-LARIOUS! 😀 He is on Comedy Central. The new season just started and he has new episodes every Wednesday. CHECK IT OUT!
