Day 51 - cabin fever

Song of the day:  Lupe Fiasco - The Show Goes On

Last night we ended up having ground turkey sloppy joes with sweet potato fries.  We had some sloppy joe sauce in the cupboard and figured that we should probably use it!  Instead of using a normal white hamburger bun we used 100% whole wheat sandwich thins.  They have less calories and more fiber, so win-win-win (that was a The Office reference...).  

My work out was really good!  It's amazing what your body can do in a few weeks.  I did some strength training then did about 45 minutes on the treadmill.  I have a circuit that I do - warm up, 5 min jog, 1 min brisk walk, 3 min incline, 1 min brisk walk, repeat, cool down.  That way I get a whole spectrum of speed and incline in my workout.  I burn about 440 calories, so it feels awesome!  I read a few weight loss blogs on sparkpeople.com and I really want to get a heart rate monitor.  Then I'll know exactly how many calories I'm burning instead of what the treadmill is guesstimating.  But I guess I only want one if I'll find out that I'm burning more than I think instead of less, lol.  :)  

Tonight we are having buffalo sliders with guacamole and steamed broccoli.  I've never had buffalo (or at least I don't think I have), but I've heard it's really good, and I'm always  up for trying new things!  

The Biggest Loser is on tonight, so I'm not going to get any cardio in until late.  I think I'm going to only do 30 minutes on my non-strength training days - which are Tuesday and Thursday.  This also makes sense because my favorite TV shows are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, lol.  

Kyle's feeling better, so he's back to work today.  The sun is shining, but it's still really cold out and there's a fresh layer of snow over everything.  I am definitely feeling cabin fever-ish and last weeks tease of 50 degree weather didn't help!  I'm so ready for spring!
