Merry Christmas

We have had a wonderful day so far and the fun is not over. This evening we are heading to my Aunts house for dinner. My sissy and her kiddies will be there too.

I put together a bunch of photos of our unwrapping adventure that occurred early this morning.

D’s favorite gift was Matchbox Shuttle Mission – Santa made his day.

My blog photos will now look superb.




Santa came through for mommy this year – a Polar F11. My honey accidentally bought the men’s size which is way too big for my wrist so we will be exchanging it. Now I have a HRM for my indoor activities – I just love fitness gadgets.

I ended up getting up really early and doing a 60 min. Power Yoga DVD – I am so loving yoga. What took me so long to get into it? I am hooked now. Before yoga I ate a banana.

Then my guys woke up and we opened our gifts. For breakfast I had 1/3 cup oat bran cooked in 3/4 cup water. Once cooked I added a chopped apple, a bunch of cinnamon, a tbsp PB and 2 banana biscotti.


I didn’t have time for a run this morning because we had to head over to my in-laws for a visit so I hopped on the WaterRower for 30 min.

I packed lunch to take with me. PB & J and SunButter and J on Ezekiel bread.


Sliced cuke and zucchini with hummus.


A small container of plain Chobani.


When we got home it was about 2:00 and the road was calling me. I went for a nice 5.6 mile run in the sun. Yes, the sun was shining today and melting all that dirty snow. After a quick shower I made a hefty snack because dinner is not until after 6:00. I mixed 1/2 cup Greek yogurt,1/2 cup pumpkin, 3/4 cup Cinnamon Puffins, a tbsp PB, a tbsp cranberry apple butter and 2 banana biscotti.


I am pretty sure my Uncle is making prime rib so I need to pack some dinner for myself and Mr. D. Time to get my booty moving. I hope you are having a wonderful day. I will try to post later but if I am too tired please forgive me if I skip out of it. Tomorrow is a cleaning day so I will need some R&R tonight. See you later friends.
