Satisfecho

Food:

  • 2 egg muffins, banana, 1% milk, coffee, carmel macchiato sugar free creamer
  • greek yogurt w/ fruit and granola, apple
  • 1% milk, greek yogurt tuna on wheat with spinach.  bell peppers, cucumbers, hummus.
  • Cheesy Penne with Broccoli and baked chicken breasts.  Red wine.  Lots.

Exercise:

  • 50 toe push ups
  • 50 sit ups (25 leg lifts, 25 cobras)

Tim and Misto convinced me that it would be okay to miss practice yesterday, even w/ a TT30 mix-up scrimmage.  (Snow = bad roads.)  Which was good because the scrimmage was cancelled.  So I went shopping!  😀  I’ve decided that since overweight and old teachers wear leggings to work, I should too. (My legs look way better, it’s a disservice to the people if I don’t wear them…) I bought some online at Kohl’s, but they fit a little awkwardly, so I went to try the smaller size on.  Ended up keeping the size I originally purchased (though ironically one of the packages says “M” but is actually “L” so I will have to return today to exchange them…), but picked up a pair of clearance real suede F-Uggs and some long sweaters for my new leggings look.  (Rocking them today.  Gray leggings, F-Uggs, lime green sweater!  Pearls.) Then I went to Levi’s and (sorry Rebel) exchanged the black skinny jeans for a new pair and some gray ones.  They look like khaki so I can also wear these to work, and those colors didn’t come in strait leg.  And it was 2 for $80.  Again.  And they gave me a coupon.  Again (bastards.)  Who wants a Levi’s Coupon?

Also–went to the Country Pedaler bike shop in Castle Rock and got some fancy cleats for my fancy new shoes.  I’m so excited to try them out tonight!  But I may hit practice instead… not sure.  Misto-run practice w/ scrimmage after is promising…  but spin…  new shoes…  we’ll see.

My shopping prevented me from so much as walking the dog yesterday, but you know what?  I don’t care!  It was awesome.  I had a great day.  I made more of that delicious Cooking Light penne (with chicken this time) and hung out with Tim.  Since he’ll be gone this weekend, that was an excellent use of time.  Plus I didn’t have to sit in traffic and snow trying to get to the War*house or risk driving off the “cliff” by the Rec Center like the last time I went there in the snow.  “Satisfecho,” incidentally, means “satisfied” en español, and is a phrase Tim used to use when we dated after we had a good meal and had that awesome feeling.  I’m applying it to life right now.  I’m content, I’m satisfecho.

Oh–and I was in bed asleep before 10pm last night.  Woke up feeling refreshed–first time that’s happened on a week day in a while.  I did take a Tylenol PM last night… Push-ups/Sit-ups are soooo much easier on a morning like this morning than they are after a late practice when I get home late and don’t sleep all night…  Gotta work on that.

I peed like a mofo yesterday.  Turns out the “monthly gift” approaches rapidly.  And I feel great. So maybe that outburst Sunday was related.

I had five packages arrive at noon yesterday!  My black Levi’s Skinny jeans–which don’t fit–so Rebel, I will be returning them.  😉  Sheets, car-charger, birth control (I wear NuvaRing so it comes in a refrigerated package which amuses me.  It must be expensive to ship.  But I don’t care, b/c with insurance those bitches run me $90 a piece and shipping is “free.”) and… my Spin Shoes!!! YAY.

I was so excited, I got a matching outfit together and on with my new shoes (including black socks so I was totally black & teal,) then rushed off to Spin Class early so Leslie (who is always 20-30 minutes early) could help me figure them out.)  So first.  Leslie wasn’t there (apparently she had to emergency-teach a Zumba class.)  The nice chatty white bike shorts guy who stole my bike was there, though, and since I now ride the bike next to it, I asked him for help.  He was really nice and helpful and fortunately only the outer thigh part of his shorts is white.  (The rest is gray/black.)

*Blushes.*  Fortunately there were only three people there.  Him, a nice lady, and this old guy who wears jeans and a sweatshirt and doesn’t really even use the cages for his feet.  I need to go to a bike store and get fitted for/purchase cleats for them to clip in to the pedals.  Oops.  I thought they looked funny.  I was amused but also embarrassed, so I immediately text Rowdy and Sunny.  Then Leslie showed up, and guess what???  Same shoes as me!!!  (Hers had cleats, though… ) How cool is that?  😀  (I text Sunny and Rowdy this as well.  Details.  They’re important.)

So I used the cages yet again.  *Sigh.*  The shoes were still better than my Nike’s even not clipped in.  They’re sturdier, so.  Well.  Think brown bombers to Riedell skates…. without toe stops… or wheels… *blinks.*  Anyway spin was hard but super awesome and I was glad to be there (but even more glad when it was over.)

I ate a lot, but I dunno.  Other than the candy corn, cookies, chocolates, and wine… 😉  Okay, I guess that’s a lot of extra calories, huh?  I need to get my shit together.

Practice & Scrimmage tonight… excited.  I wanna try the assist I “invented” Monday.  Likely won’t be effective at a FC scrimmage, but hey.  Worth a try.  Oh, also, I wrote this really dramatic pep talk for “The World” for Saturday.  Wait for it.  It’ll be EPiC’ly amusing.  (And humorous, I think…  we’ll see.)
