The Word of the day is... WATER!

The scale was NOT my friend today. Lack of exercise yesterday perhaps? Too much sodium with all that popcorn? The frosting and cake batter? My period? Who knows... but regardless I am trying to help the issue with overloading on... WATER! (AAAHHH!!)The day started off with me jumping out of bed and getting in a nice 45min jog. The day was sandwiched with a lunch time walk... followed by the ten minute challenge after work.
Challenge you say? Yes... I did. Here's the details:
Circ 1: 15 push ups, 25 squats. Repeat
Circ 2: 26 bicycles, 26 reverses, 20 lunges. Repeat
Circ 3: 15 tricep dips, 60sec wall squat. Repeat
Grand Finale: 60sec plank
Total time: 12min (still working on 10 minutes. I'm SLOW!)
Oh... I also did tricep exercises at work (I actually carry a resistance band thingy on me. Sad, I know. I've done tricep exercises each day at work for over a week now). I'm now doing thigh master exercises and chest press (via thigh master) exercises during Bachelorette on TV. Next will be making tomorrow's lunch, doing dishes... and going to BED!

Here's today's food choices
Breakfast: strawberries and blueberries (1)
Snack: green monster (3)
Lunch: 1/2c quinoa (2), chick peas (1), cheese (2), salsa and veggies (0), yogurt (1)
Snack: Larabar - cocoa coconut (4)
Dinner: stir fry with veggies (0), shrimp (2) and lobster meat (1)... followed by banana ice cream (3)
Total: 20
Water: 4L

I'm actually stressing right now. My top of the line and lovely kitchenaid blender appears to be struggling. The plastic 'teeth' things on the base are wearing down (I just noticed it tonight). Hopefully they don't wear down any more... and hopefully I have a long life with the blender. Luckily, it is only a blender and can be replaced if necessary... I just wonder if I have my warranty (although, Alex did buy it for me like 5 years ago).

Hmmm... I wonder how Tara is doing!!! :)

Here I am!!
You've had a busy excercise day...good job! And your food sounds yummy, especially the seafood stir fry!
I hope your blender is OK. That would suck if you needed a new one...those suckers are expensive!
Your cake was SO cute!! Did everyone like it? What kind was it?
