So I type up that whole recap of last week’s workouts, I post food pictures, and 2 out of 3 comments are about the cat pictures (and shoes). I guess I was right – it is all about the cats! 

That’s ok, they are pretty fabulous, in my humble opinion.

I confess – I also made a return visit to the shoe store today and gave my debit card another little workout. There were a couple other pairs of shoes I had been debating over, but I am trying to curb my impulsive shoe shopping…Mostly it appears I just manage to delay it. What can I say? I like shoes.

My other workout for the day was Cardio Intervals. After last week, I was still not feeling up to doing the whole thing as running intervals. So, I did 3 intervals that were different speeds of walking, 4 intervals that were walk/run, then 3 walking again. At the time it felt fine, but now my legs are complaining. Hope I haven’t I haven’t gone and set myself back again.

Finally, less than exciting though they may be, today’s food pictures….

Breakfast was yogurt and an apple:


Still feeling unmotivated to actually cook on the weekends for my work lunches. Last year January was a bad month for workouts. This year I’m doing the workouts, but I don’t wanna make lunch. So, for the second week in a row, Amy is doing the cooking. The upside to this is that I feel compelled to add veggies to my pre-packaged lunches.

Burrito with yellow bell pepper and cauliflower:


Late afternoon pick-me-up:


Dinner was a very tasty repeat of last night. So glad this experiment worked out and we will be making it again.

Italian Chicken & Potatoes, with steamed broccoli and cauliflower:



For my dessert – Bolthouse Vanilla Chai:

Time to drag my weary muscles to bed!
