What a wonderful feeling!

The kitchen’s clean, the floors have been swept, the table’s set. oh it feels so good to be in a clean house! I did just about everything on yesterday’s task list and feel great about it!

Here’s how I set up the table:


I’ll put up a pic tonight with all the food on it too!!! I decided to keep it simple but fresh looking. Do you like it?

For breakfast I am sorry to announce I had the USUAL! I almost went for a little granola plank instead of coconut but the extra few calories just weren’t worth it to me- the coconut is so good!


And PB’s breakfast in Philly.. it’s a frittata with potatoes, spinach and mushrooms:


This morning I got up and went to the gym for a quick 25 minute workout. I wish I had more time but it takes me 15 minutes to get to and from my gym so while it’s cold out and I have to work out inside I will have to settle for shorter, more intense workouts.

Thanks for all of your great HRM advice the other day. Some of your tips included:
-changing the battery
-wetting it better
-tightening the strap

Well, I tightened the strap this morning (thanks, Caitlin) and it worked! It still took about 5 minutes but it worked perfectly after my quick warmup. I was so excited! I burned about 250 calories during my workout- a lot for me for 25 minutes. I was smoking! I ran on the treadmill between 6.5 and 8.0, with a 60 second walk 3 times to change music/fix hair/fix strap.

What tips do you all have for staying on track during the weekends? It is definitely the hardest time of the week for me for a few reasons:
-I am not on a schedule
-There are better goodies around
-I eat out more!

My tips for staying on track:
-Exercise! When I workout on the weekends I tend to eat better
-Pick ONE special treat when out to dinner… EITHER wine or dessert, or appetizer or bread basket. There is no need to have a 3 course meal with wine every time you go out.
-Don’t skip meals! Sometimes I get so busy on the weekends I forget to eat and then I end up overcompensating later on because I am so ravenous. Don’t do that haha

Please share your tips with me!

    **How to stay on track over the weekend = realize that it’s not the last weekend of your life!! Treat it normally.

  2. Love the table set-up! Your oats look yummy and I love your travel mug.

  3. I love your table set up. Am a little green with envy of your table, I currently set up my coffee table. I try and run about an hour a day and lift. I find that scheduling 5 or 10k (3.1 or 6.2) mile races to run in over the weekend help me stay on track as well. Sometimes my Saturday night is a little decadent (champagne) and Sunday is sort of a treat (Thai food or somesuch). Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for checking my blog!

  9. I do like the table. Modern, yet still classic!

    About the Back to Basics challenge, it’s going well for me. I mean it’s not as exciting to blog about as past challenges. I’ll talk about it more on the blog soon. For Mark, ummm not so much going well I don’t think. 😀

  10. Table looks great! Those are the best ways to stay on track. I also just make sure that I’m keeping busy doing all those little chores and tasks I don’t have time for during the week- that way I can’t just sit around munching all day long:)

  11. The table looks great! I bet your party will be a hit!

  12. Love the table setting, very minimalist and chic! I make sure I’m always hydrated… and if I’m uber snacky mood I make a cup of tea with milk and stevia before deciding if I really need that cookie/chips/etc.

  13. love the table setting sabrina! tres chic!
