Everyone's Favorite Day

OK, so maybe not everybody’s favorite day but I can say it is my favorite day of week!!! It’s Friday, it’s Friday (doing happy dance in chair)!!!!! Well I hope you have all survived the week and are headed for a great weekend. I am looking forward to this weekend, cause not only is it Friday it’s payday (Yippee), so we are headed to the grocery store to get stocked up on goodies and some much need supplies to try some new recipes. (Have I mentioned how much I “heart” my new cookbook). I am also going to get some cleaning done this weekend, and I am looking forward to my Beth Moore Bible study on Sunday.

I really have enjoyed the Bible study (It's a Revelation Bible Study by Beth Moore) that I have been attending. My aunt had invited me to attend and I am getting a lot out of it. I'm finding what I am learning is really helping me stay on track during the week. In fact a few times this week I have watched or listened to some teachings while I exercise. I joked with my aunt that I am exercising my spirit as I exercise my body, but it has felt so true. Think about how important it is that while we condition our bodies that we are doing the same for our mind & soul!

Well to write my progress for yesterday I stayed on track with my eating. For breakfast I had a whole wheat English muffin with peanut butter and fresh fruit. Lunch was
grilled fish and brown rice (left-over’s). Dinner was extra special. My older brother asked me out on a date, so we left our significant others at home and just went out together! I had so much fun spending time with him, it really made my week. He took me to Masa Sushi (one of my favorite local places). I had the veggie roll and mushroom sake roll (nothing but veggies in either one – So not to many calories). When I got home it was pretty late so I only exercised for 30 minutes, but better than nothing.

Today I had the same for breakfast ,English muffin with peanut butter and fresh fruit. My lunch was this tuna pasta….. Yum! Perfect for lunch in the middle of a Texas summer. Didn’t leave me feeling stuffed but it was enough food to do the trick!
