Sloth Day

Evenin' y'all :)

Hope your day has gone SOOO well! It's so nice to NOT be at work and just be able to kick up my feet and relax all day. That's pretty much all I've done today, only leaving the house to take Nate to the airport, and then to go job 2 miles. After jogging, I did some weights at home:
  • body weight rows, 3 sets of 15
  • body weight bicep curls, 3 sets of 15
  • single-leg tricep kickbacks, 8 lbs, 3 sets of 12
  • single-leg shoulder press, 8 lbs each, 3 sets of 12
  • stability ball push-ups, 3 sets of 15
  • walking lunges, 2 sets of 30
  • standing band obliques
And then I borrowed this pilates DVD from Salah:

Holy BURN! This really hit my deep rectus abdominis! Not to mention I feel like I strained my right quad, so the leg stuff was kicking my tail too!

Lunch was a little sampling of cold green bean casserole:

Yes, I said cold. I love cold foods! And some leftover (hot) beans, shredded chicken, and homemade salsa in a bowl:

Leftovers are so yummy, and I was super thankful for good Tex-Mex. This afternoon I laid on the couch for about 4 hours and watched the What Not to Wear marathon. Yep, 4 hours...and it was glorious. I snacked on some pecan halves (not pictured), and drank a ton of water, and just LAID. Felt so good!

Dinner tonight was sugar snap peas and carrots that Salah made (a little soy sauce and garlic powder, and the natural sweetness was perfection):

And some fried rice made with leftover ham and brown rice. We each had about 1/4 cup of the leftover green bean casserole and the leftover green Jell-O salad. Delish!

I ate mine so fast! I don't know why/how I consume food so quickly, but I think that I'm going to make one of my New Year's resolutions to eat a lot slower so I can increase the amount of time I derive pleasure from food. That sounds like a healthy resolution, right?

I'm going to watch some football and read the rest of the night to complete my slothful day. Have a good one!

Question: What is a small step you can take to lead you to your New Year's resolution goal?

  1. My goal for the new year is to buy a dslr camera, and i've vowed to put at least $20 from every paycheck into my savings account. It might take a while, but those little bits of money will add up!
