A Blog is Born*

Today – 12/28/11 – I write my first healthy living blog entry!

A year ago today — I weighed 127 pounds and was in the best shape of my life.*

skinny me

 silly me

The past year – between dating a chef – being stressed out at work – reducing my workouts from 5 to 7 times per week to 2 to 3 times per week – celebrating engagements, weddings and babies with friends and family – new hobby of baking — the pounds have creeped back on and….

This morning I weighed 138 pounds…

Over the upcoming months I would like to get back down to my ideal weight of 127 pounds.

I vow to be attempt to be a sweaty mess everyday in 2012….!

Here I go!!!

Workout:
9:30 – Cardio Madness –  class at gym

Included bench jump squats, weighted jumping jacks, squat with shoulder press, planks, push-ups and burpees – each move for 4 minutes – 20 seconds on – 10 seconds rest – not too shabby!!

Fuel:

Breakfast

Steel cut oats with apple, cinnamon and nutmeg

Lunch
Larabar
Greek Yogurt with dates and figs

Snack
Chocolate Covered Fig

Green Tea

Dinner
Roasted Vegetable Calzones

Adapted from Supercharged – Roasted Vegetables Recipe

Roasted Vegetable Calzone

1. Chopped eggplant, zucchini, summer squash, butternut squash, red onion, tossed with her dressing – and roasted! = magic*

2. Rolled out pizza dough –

3. Placed roasted veggies on one half

4.  Covered in an italian blend grated cheese

5. Baked at 400 for about 25 minutes.

I am on vacation!!!
Things I love about vacation:
1. Not hearing my alarm going off at 5:45
2. Being able to sleep until I want to
3. Working out during the day!!!
4. Going to some of my favorite classes that are during the day at the gym.
5. Being able to make a slow breakfast and sit at the table and enjoy it.
6. Time to organize all of my stuff…
7. Focus and energy to read – instead of falling asleep as soon as I open the page.
8. Seeing friends
9. Seeing family
10. Day trip – adventures!!

What is your favorite thing to do over vacation?
