Holiday Lunch and Time With Homefries!

Good morning cool cats lol…I hope ya’ll are having a great day thus far and staying warm. It is BRRRRRRRRRR out there; I am still defrosting ha.

I actually had a good time ayer at the Gym’s Holiday Lunch. We never get to see one another because only one lady works per shift so we all communicate via a notebook that we have on the desk so it was nice to reconnect with all the ladies.

I started off with a tiny piece of Bruschetta


A couple of pieces of Fried Calamari and small serving of Caprese Salad


For my main course I ordered WW Linguini with Vodka Sauce which I only ate 1/2 of and saved the rest for din din


We had a great time….


After the lunch I rushed to pick up my niece from school…I was lucky that I hit no traffic because I was doing about 80 (oops). Have you ever tried to find parking near a school? IT SUCKS! I had to park about 4 blocks away and RUN to her school…and I was greeted with “titi you are late…I am almost the last one left”. I took her to Subway and which shut her up really quickly lol. The dude that worked there thought she was such a cutie and gave her this little reusable bag with a bear on it. I think it’s to save wilderness or something, no se. We went back to my place and she did her tarea and then played with my Wii Fit.

After I dropped her off later in the evening, I went back home and had my leftovers…


And for dessert I had ONE SERVING (yup just one) of “cookie dough”



This morning I woke up and just wanted to stay in bed because it was so cold in my apartment but that nagging voice was right there with me “get up, are you seriously going to quit the challenge on day 4? GET UP” I finally dragged my bum up and did Jillian’s kickboxing and Power Pilates on Exercise TV and burned 324 Calories in 45 minutes. If you guys are looking for a good Pilates workout and have Exercise TV, I totally recommend it.

For Breakfast I just had Chobani Strawberry Yogurt with PB and my usual coffee. Gina, PB makes everything better (for me lol)


Today should be a nice day at work, the jefe and coworker are both out wooooohooooooo. I should have brought my sports bra and HR monitor so I could workout in the office…YES I have done that in the past lol

Have a great day chickies and chicos
