In 5 minutes, it will officially be Spring!!! Bring it on baby!!
I'm blogging from work since I have some down time and want to take advantage of it. It's 11:55pm on Friday and the forcast for tomorrow is warm (65-70 degrees), clear skies and beautiful. When the sunshines in the Seattle area, you can't help but be outside enjoying it to the fullest! After taking a quick nap in the morning, I'm going to gather my family and dogs to head out to Marymoor park. The park in Redmond has 40 acres of off-leash dog park along the Sammamish River and Lake that it drains into. There's a bird sanctuary also to enjoy. It's a great place to go running or go for a stroll with your "best friend". I love going there and plan on taking advantage of the great weather to exercise and celebrate the first day of spring!
It has been a great week for me. Though I've gained back some weight, I know I will loose it. And with the arrival of spring and warmer weather, I want to look great wearing less layers!! My challenge is eating when there is little in the way of a routine for me due to my work hours. I'm a home health nurse. Since it's at night, and I have down time frequently, I've lately chosen foods that are carb heavy (in addition to Starbucks Doubleshots to keep me awake). I find that I crave carbs more when I'm tired, and since my schedule isn't going to change much, I need a plan. I bring carrots and other veggies to snack on but just can't bring myself to eat them at work. Tonight I have a footlong subway with Turkey and Ham. I've eaten half of it and am saving the rest for later. Now that I think of it, I probably need to eat more protein to sustain me during the night. Lowfat protein choices, anyone? One's that are quick to prepare?
