Snow?! Sleet?! February 24, 2011

Filed under: daily blog — mrstutt @ 8:05 pm

Outside

Last week we had beautiful weather, high 60s – low 70s, absolutely beautiful! This week started off on the cooler side, today…today it is snowing, sleeting and icy roads?! Oh, Missouri weather make up your mind please!

still sore??…

I am guessing the run from Tuesday really worked some unworked muscles in my body because my legs are still sore! I did not work out yesterday, was thinking I would give my body a rest day and hopefully the sore muscles would heal and be ready for today…they aren’t. Yesterday I posted ways to relieve sore muscles and one was stretching, yoga always gives me a good total body stretch and I am break a nice sweat at times. I have 3 yoga DVDs at home that I have rented from the library so I am going to do one of those and maybe the stretching will help my legs bounce back and be ready for a more intense cardio workout tomorrow!

working on the goal of becoming a better wife=)

I told myself at the beginning of the year that I wanted to become a better wife. Now the definition of wife all depends on the person defining it, so let’s clarify what I mean and some will disagree. I want to cook more, clean more, keep the home a place that is looked forward to. I don’t think the wife should do everything but I do want to be the husbands help meet[Genesis 2:18] and provide by doing what I think is a “good wife”.

Today is a short day at work…and my house is calling my name and asking to be cleaned! So guess what I am doing this afternoon and tonight=) I have made my list for each room of the house and what exactly to do. Okay, so I get excited about cleaning! Crank up some music, break a sweat, and then sit and soak in the feeling of a fresh and clean house! It has to be one of the best feelings out there, right?

Grocery shopping also has to be done asap, with not being home that much we dont’ really have anything in the house. This is not my favorite activity(the husband loves grocery shopping!)  but I have been trying to make lists and menus so this week I am making a challenge to myself to make a menu, buy for that menu and stick to the menu

No pain, no gain….

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrstutt @ 5:46 pm

I don’t totally agree with “No Pain, No Gain” but I am so sore today and that came to mind! I did run yesterday like I had said I wanted to. Running outside reminds me so much of why I don’t run outisde. My body and legs felt great-burning but great while on the other hand my lungs and chest were on fire! The husband said it was because the air was too cold and I was not used to it, it was not that enjoyable but I got a good 1.5 mile jog/walk in for the day. I decided to follow the run with a 20 min upper body strength training DVD. The routine was pretty challenging, I did it with 5lb dumbbells and am feeling it today=)

I thought with my  soreness today I would do a little research on muscle soreness…

Hi February 22, 2011

thought this was so cute!!

I have been off for awhile, with my brother and niece in town, work and lots of church activities the husband and I ahve not been home except for sleeping in so long! On top of that the charger for my laptop has broke =( so it has been turned off until we can get the new charger.
So I have been doing great with “changing my ways”…I can say that I have finally started learn how to not deprive myself of the food I love and to follow moderation! I have not lost any more weight since the last weigh in but have for once maintained the weight! That is a huge accomplishment for me, while yes there are still a few pounds stuck to me that I would love to lose but I am glad to be practicing what I research and learn.

The beautiful weather this weekend has given me the urge to do something I have really not ever liked……to run. I have mapped out a route close to my house that adds up to about a mile, not a lot but I want to start slow and see if it can be something I can learn to like=) we will see!!

Valentine’s day February 14, 2011

On Valentines Day
The chocolate syrup said to the ice cream
“I’m sweet on you!”
While the pencil said to the paper
“I dot my i’s on you!”
And the light bulb asked his girlfriend
Do I mean a whole watt to you?”

happy valentine’s day! ❤

Dear Monday, please come slow and go quick!!
I spent my whole weekend with my brother, his gf and my beautiful neice! Then to top it off, amazing church! My weekends have been so good=)
I have been eating sandwich thins a lot more lately, so I thought I would compare to see if there is really a difference between regular bread slices and the thin slices…

Arnold Bread slices: 100% Whole Wheat

     Per Serving size: 1 slice
         Calories 100, from fat 20
         fat 2g
         carbs 20g
         Fiber 6g
         sugar 3g
         Protein 4g

Arnold Sandwich Thins: 100% Whole Wheat

      Per Serving: 1 roll
         Calories 100 , from fat 10
         fat 1g
         carbs 21g

         fiber 5g
         sugar 2g
         protein 5g

Once comparing the two side by side there is not a huge difference between the two. I was surprised to find the thins had more carbohydrates than the slices, not by a lot. I do like the thins more than the slices though, I am not a fan of thick bread on sandwiches.
