Day Off

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

I have been greatly enjoying my day off! It's been amazing to have an entire day to myself, doing whatever I've felt like doing at the moment.

I enjoyed an hour or so of catching up on my scrapbooking. I love to take pictures and especially love to put together all my memories to be enjoyed in the future.

That fun ended when I had to apply for jobs. I am planning on leaving my full time job where I don't have health benefits and find one that does have them. Hopefully a better paying job with benefits will allow me to move out of my parents house and start my own life.

Anyways, for lunch today I mixed up a quick salad with salad mix, cut up carrots, shredded cheese, and free thousand island dressing. I have really been craving salad lately (which isn't a bad thing at all!) so this definitely hit the spot. I also heated up a Anzio and Son's roll with a few pieces of Land O'Lakes American Cheese for my famous cheese roll. Cheese is one of my favorite foods, you can often find me just eating slices with my hand in the fridge grabbing the next one. It definitely off-set my salad to say the least =)

Today's workout was based off a circuit workout I found on PBFingers page.

legs and abs circuit

I decided to change things up a little bit. I followed the circuit until I go to the plank hip lifts. Instead I opted to keep focusing on my abs longer and completed:
60 seconds of plank
25 leg lifts
10 sit ups
20 out cross cross
60 seconds of holding my legs straight out in front off the floor

Then I hopped on the treadmill for 10 minutes of cardio. I did 90 seconds walking, 60 seconds sprinting for 10 minutes. I worked up a pretty good sweat and decided I would be done for the day.

Then it was time for dinner!

My family was having tacos...and I have a strange food confession to make...I HATE GROUND BEEF. I know it's weird but I don't like the taste or texture and it makes me want to vomit. So instead I made myself a veggie wrap.

It was very exactly like my salad I had for lunch (I know I'm so original!) and equally delicious! I used a FlatOut Bread light italian herb wrap to add a little bit of flavor. 

Now, I'm enjoying the rest of my day off. I just caught the tail-end of Leap Year on ABCFamily. I love this movie. I am such a hopeless romantic. I've always believed that there is a prince charming out there who will eventually find his way to me! This movie just feeds into my emotions. *sigh*

Anyways, enjoy the rest of your day everyone!
