I'm feeling better now

Dinner was yum! Turkey burgers (93% lean turkey, 2 jalapenos, 1/2 onion Teriyaki sauce), broccoli, and green beans with tarragon, dill, and crushed red peppers. I was hoping to have Brussels Sprouts but found 5 packages of broccoli instead. Bummer. The turkey lit me up though. I added one whole jalapeno then I seeded the rest. I think every other bite had my mouth blazing. I just so happen to LOVE spicy food. For starters, I am originally from Louisiana so hot sauce is part of every meal. Also, when I was pregnant with #3, I craved jalapenos. I couldn't get enough. I ate them with everything--spaghetti, pizza, burgers....Even after I had her I still had this obsession. It's toned down quite a bit now, but I still love them.

No workout today. I am calling it an off day. I did knock out 200 pushups as of right now (190 at work, 10 more at home) and 150 crunches. My body is pretty sore from the Wii and I can already feel my arms getting sore from all those pushups. I'm not trying to justify NOT working out, I'm just saying that I'm sore and I'm not doing it. I'm not even getting any Wii time...at least I don't think I am.

Have I mentioned that I think they put crack in Smart Water? Okay, I am not serious when I say that, but I am addicted to the stuff. I normally HATE water, but I can't get enough of this stuff. It leaves me thirsty, thus wanting to drink more to quench my thirst.

It's only 9, but I am exhausted. I think I was asleep before 10 last night. I am going to change the baby's diaper, make my tuna, then call it a night. I want to do some reading but I think I should just call it quits and get some sleep. I am one of those people that need at least 8 hours of sleep.

Wow. Seriously. 200 push ups? At work?? I'm very impressed.

I work in a library and occasionally do squats in the stacks. Somehow, knowing I'm getting paid while I do them makes them easier...

Okay, disclaimer, disclaimer....I didn't do all 200 at once. I would do 10-25 at a time. I did this over a three hour time span. (Well, minus the ten I did at home) We have a push up/sit up challenge at work so I am trying to get my 10,000 over with. Gotta keep up withe the guys. Also, althought I work at a hospital with 120 employees, there's only 7 of us in my office. You can walk in at any random time and find someone doing push ups or crunches.

Whoa on the 200 pushups ... that's awesome no matter how long it took you to do them.

For the jalopenos, do you mince them up and then put them in the turkey? That sounds really good.

Katie,

I chop the jalepenos in very small pieces. I've used pickled jalepenos before, but I used fresh ones last night. Sometimes I cut them in half and seed them, other times I don't. Last night I removed the seeds from one and left one in tact!

Thanks for answering. I'm going to have to try that. Right now, I have a bottle of minced garlic that I put into my burger.

As for the question that you asked on my blog -- I've done BFL before. I think it's a great program and will introduce you to a whole new way of life. Now if only I could practice what I preach. I've had some success, but definitely not the greatest. But I've kept at it and it's now a way of life and that's the most important thing.
