So, I had a pretty great week this week. Yay! I am thrilled that it's the weekend, though. Right now, it's 8:30 am. I'm sitting in my cozy chair with my feet propped up on the ottoman, covered in my favorite blanket. My doggie is sleeping between me & the arm of the chair. Hubby is in "his" chair in the same room. And we both just finished our first cup of coffee.
Oh, how I love Saturday. Tonight is the wedding of my beautiful friend, Danielle, and i cannot WAIT.
Aaron & Danielle - SO CUTE!
She is going to be a beautiful bride!
Anyway... my week was pretty routine: work, gym, home, law & order, bed. Hahaha. Yeah...that about sums it up! But here are some more specifics...
The newest member of our family was born! Izaac Lucca. I cannot wait to meet this little cutie!
It feels SO GOOD to be back to good health! I hit the gym everyday after work (Monday - Thursday) & did either the elliptical or the treadmill. I meant to do Friday, but i had yucky cramps & just wanted to go home. Still, four days is good! And I also ate very well about 90% of the time. You can read all the specifics at my other blog if you want to. But i just had to share here, because it was a pretty big part of my week! I did lose over 3 pounds this week, too. Yes!
The screen shot of my iPhone to remind me of my goals.
Leaving the gym on Wednesday! Woohoo!
On Wednesday the electricity went out at work around 2:00. Now. Not only is it 100 degrees (or so) outside, but we have almost 200 students. So while my boss tried to get in touch with entergy to find out when we were expected to get electricity back, i went & hung out with the students who were hot, cranky, and slightly delirious!
Me & my coworker Mallory, sweating it out at work!
We did end up getting the lights back after an hour. Then two of my students, Ayme & Jessica, came to harrass me. These two are HILARIOUS together.They're like an old married couple, except they're best friends not a couple. FUNNY GIRLS.
I am obsessed with Law & Order SVU. It's so bad that i think about things like DNA way more often than the average citizen! It's not that i never saw this show before, it's just that in the past i might catch one episode every few months, but now i've been watching one show after another every night from season 7 to season 11. I'm at the end of season 11 now. Then season 12. Season 13's premiere will air in September. It is SUCH a good show. It's just good writing & acting.
Honestly, i'm obsessed with Mariska Hargitay. She is my favorite actress right now. Last night, i ended up watching several interviews with her & a bloopers reel too, which was great. I really like her. I like her character in Law & Order and i like her in real life. She's a fantastic actress.
She was saying in one interview that it takes 8 days to film one episode. They spend four days in the studio rehearsing & those are the days family & dogs & friends come up & hang out & it's just crazy but fun. And the next four days they're filming on location. It's 14-15 hour days. These are the things i find interesting & like to know more about. It's the acting bug in me. I love it!
Another obsession you need to know about. My greek yogurt. I have never been a big yogurt fan. I always would buy it & then never eat it. I have been hearing how great Greek Yogurt is for you, it has SO much more protein than regular yogurt & a whole lot less sugar. Or less "bad" sugar. Anyway... i have one everyday for breakfast. DELICIOUS.
This was my first time having the mango one & i really liked it. I have to say Mango & Strawberry are probably my favorites. But i love them all. The apples & cinnamon one is really good, too.
Hmmm... that might be all I have to share this week. Except maybe a little Fievel for you. :)
