Leftovers, Leftovers, and 3.5 days!

Right now my insomnia is kicking my butt big time. I was up at 12, 1:30, 3, and then finally just got out of bed at 4am! It must have been the coffee I had last night. So I will be hitting the gym super early, I just hope I make it through the day.


One down 3.5 days more to go! Monday went by so fast, I hope the rest of the week does too. I had kind of a boring day of meals, I had leftover shepherds pie for lunch with a salad, one of my Baked Oatmeal Snack Bars for snack with some kettle corn and hot coco, then after akb I had some more leftover shepherds pie (hubby’s version green beans and corn). This stuff is just SOOOO good, and I added some Kale. Kale is great taste a little like spinach but not really I am not sure how to describe it? What would you say it taste like?

I had coffee with my good friend Melissa at Sbux, I just had a small cup of coffee ( but I think I should have had tea seeing that I couldn’t sleep last night), because I had AKB at 7:30pm. I love having coffee with her, we chat about life and she is such a REAL girl! I am blessed by her friendship more then she knows:) She also brought me this bag of yummy brittle, LETHAL!!!

I had a small piece after dinner, and another small whit chocolate covered honey wheat pretzel. It was a big sweet day for me, I might be starting something soon;)

After Coffee I taught AKB, it was a SMALL class! I only had five people come. I think it was because of the RAIN. Us CALIFORNIANS treat rain like snow out here. It was kind of nice having a small class because I got to do A LOT of new things with them. We did burpees of course, and then we ran from bag to bag for 2 minutes with four punches in between, man this get’s your HR WAY up. We also got to do a lot of ab work with the partners and a medicine ball. Man I am going to be sore today! I have been feeling a lot of pain in my left tricep, I am not sure if it’s a pinched nerve of a sore muscle.



If my life had a soundtrack I would want Josh Groban to SING it!!!! Lance did a post about this subject and I had to think about it, finally found the perfect artist. I bought his CD at target yesterday (where I also got some great stocking stuffers for the hubby). I played it during stretching in class( my NEW THING for the day) , it was perfect and my class loved it! His voice is just so beautiful!!!!


When I got home I also had a wonderful package waiting for me from Doce Vida Fitness, they sent me some yoga pants to review! I was so excited I have been waiting for these all last week:) I am not sure if they are supposed to be super tight, they sent me a small but I think I would be more comfortable in a medium. I’ ll have to try them out. They also sent me a mini Key Lime LARABAR, my first mini! I haven’t really dove into my LARABAR stash I need to get on that!

Alright folks I am going to try and get out of here, I have to go into work early so I guess it’s a good thing that I am up! I think I am going to try the elliptical today, and maybe a little of the treadmill ( I am sure it won’t be much I LOATH the treadmill! ). I will be hitting the weights, I haven’t been into my new gyms sense before Thanksgiving!!! I don’t want to be like Chandler from Friends who has a gym membership and NEVER uses it! I have our school Holiday Sing so no AKB tonight:( Well peeps have fun today!

P.S. Thank you all for all the kind comments about me and my ideas about my blog, they were so encouraging!!! YOU ALL ROCK!

Good morning! I'm right there with you, I was up at 2:30 today and finally got out of bed at 4.I see a nap in my future!
It's hard to describe kale. It kinda tastes like a tree, but in a good way!
That's so cool that you got to hang out with such an awesome friend. :) Have a great day!

just me said...

ohhh....i hear you about waking up, that was me last night...2, 3.30, 4.30, 5.30...booo! hope we can last through today!

i've never had kale; so a description by others is going to be great to hear!

That brittle looks amazing!

I want to come take your AKB class. I love kickboxing, even if I am probably doing all the things wrong.

And I'm glad you found my last post amusing. I aim to please!

ooooh i hate not being able to sleep!! this happens to me all the time, too-- sometimes i'm just excited about something or ready for the next day but then i crash and get angry cuz i'm tired + grumpy, haha. my brother amazes me b/c he doesn't ever get any sleep cuz he stays up so late, but he just goes about whatever he has to do (including all his workouts for track and he's killer!) and then we'll be waiting for a table for dinner and he can literally fall asleep just sitting ... hahahaha, it's hilarious. i wish i could fall asleep anywhere! :)

Yoga pants to try for free? Sounds awesome! I'm looking forward to reading the review.

MizFit said...

is it the holidays!?

I never get insomnia either and have had it...AND making lists (to try and stop from ruminating) isnt helping either.

here's hoping you dont have a tired day.

eatingbender said...

Oy vey! I'm so sorry about your insomnia - I hope it gets better soon! Luckily you've had some FABULOUS activities/things/people to keep you busy - great friends, great food (white chocolate covered honey wheat pretzel - WOAH!), and YOGA PANTS! That's amazing! Hurray for Larabar minis, too!

I loooove Friends! That episode is hilarious - although when is Chandler NOT hilarious?!

Have a great day!

RunToFinish said...

mm the pretzels look heavenly. I'm pretty sure you are burning them off so no worries!

Lance said...

My wife has this thing for Josh Groban too!! ...claims it the way he sings...

I have no problem falling to sleep at night...sometimes it's too easy...maybe I should make a run to Starbucks around 8 PM...

Have a great day today Bobbi!

Catherine said...

Ugh, coffe totally does that to my sleep!

Hmm I guess I would describe kale to have a big of a harder, starchier taste than spinach because the leaves aren't as delicate. It is great for cooking into soups for that reason!

Crazy HBBC points girl!

Mark said...

Sleep is overrated! :)I like your meals! Great stuff!

Runeatrepeat said...

It's so true that we Californians freak out in the rain! It was crazy Monday!

Brian said...

Groban is the man, his xmas album is the best one ever! Making me drool with those brittle pics, hah.
