Where did this whole month go? I can’t October is almost over. I still haven’t accomplished everything on my Halloween Bucket list yet, but I’m marking them off slowly! These include:
- Carving Pumpkins
- Halloween Movie Marathon
- Pumpkin Patch
- Halloween Treats
- Play a Full Game of Clue
Weird list, but that’s what I plan on accomplishing my October 31st! It’s nice making lists and crossing things off. It keeps me on track, organized, and at peace. If I don’t write things down, I never get them done. I find myself writing down everything lately: ideas, goals, notes, tips, lists, grocery lists, blog topics, etc… I thought I was going into an OCD overload until I found out that this IS what you should be doing if you’re looking to stay on track.
Tonight, my BeachBody Coach team had an amazing call with our Diamond coach, Angie Green. It’s nice having these weekly calls with the girls where we can all get together and talk about what we did that week, go over our homework, our goals, and just catch up. Tonight was amazing though, because Angie gave us a 20 minute talk about how she became a coach and what we need to be doing daily in order to become better and on track. I’m going to do a whole new post summing it up and finally going over what a BeachBody coach is and does.
I saw this today as well when I was browsing Facebook. I asked myself this same question. When it comes to fitness or just life in general, do you make excuses or are you the one making progress? I was making excuses for the longest time and finally made myself a priority. I kept letting everyone else come first. When people would ask to hangout after work, instead of saying “no” and going home and doing my workouts, I went out to eat. I was only hurting myself. So stop making excuses and start making the progress you set out to make! So that is just a small preview of what I’m going to write about next. I’m going to go more into detail about getting back on track. This will include making lists, grocery lists, goal setting, and much more.
Now time for the weekend recap and my weekly workout schedule!
After work, I came home and did my workout. I made a quick dinner, which consisted of a chicken wrap before I got ready to go out.
Nate worked until late, so we decided to catch a late movie. We watched the new Carrie movie that just came out. I honestly wasn’t that impressed with the movie, considering it’s a Halloween movie, I thought it would be more scary. The acting and everything was good by each character, I just wanted to see more of her using powers and going insane haha… tis the season!
After the movie, we went to Denny’s for a quick bite to eat and some coffee. It was nice just sitting and talking to each other after a long week. This is why I love having my boyfriend as my best friend.
I got up early to do a workout before making breakfast. I made a different breakfast this time and soon found my new favorite egg recipe.
I call this a Greek version to ordinary scrambled eggs.
Greek Eggs with Basil
- 2 eggs (I use vegetarian fed brown eggs)
- 3 fresh leaves of Basil, chopped
- Salt + Pepper
- 1/4 cup of diced tomatoes (I used Hunts diced tomatoes with garlic, basil, and oregano)
- 1/4 cup of low fat Feta cheese
- 1/4 cup of chopped white onion
- Simply heat up your frying pan with some non-stick spray. While the pan is heating up, crack 2 eggs into a bowl and mix until blended.
- Once the pan is hot, add in your onion and sautee until browned or soft. Next, add in your tomatoes.
- Pour the egg mixture on top of the onion and tomatoes, adding in salt and pepper.
- Once the egg is completely done on both sides, place onto your plate. Add your chopped basil on top with your feta cheese.
After breakfast, I cleaned up the house with my niece since we were planning on having a lot of people come over later that night. We had a big night planned. Everyone met at our house before heading out. We stopped at Sheetz to get some drinks and snacks for our hour long trip.
About 17 of us went to a Haunted House. Well, I wouldn’t say “haunted” as we caught the 2 am show after standing in line for about 3 hours. The actors were beat.
The house was huge, it included 27 rooms that we got to go through. It wasn’t scary as the reviews made it out to be, but like I said, we caught the late show and felt everyone was exhausted by the time it was our turn to go.
We obviously weren’t thrilled about standing outside in the cold for 3 hours, but we made the most of it and had such a blast. We didn’t get home until about 3 in the morning, so me and Nate passed out as soon as our heads hit the pillow.
It was a lazy Sunday for me. I played some Xbox before me and Nate went back to his place. We got some pizza and watched the Steelers vs. Ravens game. I was so happy that we won, I absolutely have the Ravens (sorry ravens fans…) so that definitely made my week start out amazing. After the game, we watched the Walking Dead together before he drove me home where I made him watch the little mermaid with me. Yes, I’m a kid at heart.
