6:45 AM: Weight Training – COMPLETED
A busy Sunday turned Monday is not a Funday, if that makes any sense at all. I did manage to get four loads of laundry done (with the exception that one load of bedsheets is still in the dryer waiting to be folded). I had left two large piles of clean clothes that needed to be folded — Laundry sucks.
Took me a good 20-minutes to get the bed cleaned off…
Shortly after, Pedro got on the treadmill for his workout. As soon as he got off, he said he was starving, so I had to prepare dinner. I wasn’t sure what I wanted, but decided on whole wheat linguine with clam sauce. He already requested baked mac and cheese and I was doing the simple version (not the one with six different cheeses). My dish was so easy. I just used the can of progresso, linguine w/ clam sauce and heated that while boiling the water and pasta. Then I drained the pasta and mixed with the sauce. It made two servings, so I’ll probably have it for dinner tonight.
We were too hungry for me to take pics pre-dinner, so yes, food doesn’t look that presentable. Oh, and this is such an easy recipe. Real quick: Preheat oven to 350-degrees, box of elbows (or spirals, which is the one I used last night), 2 1/2 cups of cheese (of your liking. P likes mozzerella cheese), 1-egg, 2-cups of low-fat milk, salt and pepper to taste, 2 TBSP of butter. Boil water, cook elbows, mix ingredients into a pan, and bake for 35-40 minutes uncovered. Easy, or what?
I washed dishes, read a bit and then we watched Spellbound, by Alfred Hitchcock. It was terrible. We just wanted to see the dream sequence that had Salvador Dali’s work (which we love). After the dream sequence, we stopped the movie and realized that we wasted an hour and a half of our time. Lesson learned.
I did manage to get some things done this morning, i.e. prepare dinner for tonight, pack our lunches and get some weights in.
I did a few moves from the new Self issue (I promise to scan and share).
Baby seemed to be quiet while I did some squats and lunges. I’m sure my thunder thighs will be sore tomorrow morning. I could feel them shaking…
I was a on a time limit here, so I after, I jumped in and out of the shower, changed, put Pedro’s lunch on the coffee table and scurried over to my mom and dad’s. Mom wasn’t home from work yet, and baby was sleeping… Bummer.
So, I waited for my mom to get home and the three of us ate breakfast together. I’m thinking of trying to stop by on Wednesday again so I can try to see the baby. Also, my mom leaves for 5-6 weeks to the Motherland, so I’ll spend some time with them again.
I’m tired already… then again, I’ve been on the run since 5:45am. EEK. Let’s hope I last.
