Weekend Bliss!

Wow, am I glad its the weekend or what...

This is me right now:

I am seriously doing a happy dance that I finally get time to clean, do laundry, and relax!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I am actually excited about cleaning. I got up around 8:30am and immediately preheated the oven. Jenny Craig came out with a Florentine Breakfast Pizza and I had heard through the grapevine that making them in the oven was better than microwaving. I'm a firm believer that cooking something in the oven is ALWAYS better than the microwave. And I make the effort to use my oven over my microwave whenever its feasible for me! Preheating my oven takes approx 3-5 minutes, then cooking time was 25-30. So while my oven preheated, I started cleaning...then I put the pizzas in the oven andmarathon cleaned!!!

Bleached the toilet and cleaned around the sink, threw away old papers and mail (which came in a big  bundle from the post office after I returned home from Italy), did the dishes, put things in the dishwasher, wiped down in the living room with Windex...and took out the garbage. By the time my breakfast was ready, I had worked up a fine sweat and things were clean! Basically all I need to do now is vaccuum and do the laundry...but my roommate's room is the laundry room and he's not awake yet. Yes, it is almost 11am now...and yes I do have 2 loads of clothes AND a load of sheets to do... I decided to write a blog post instead.

Tonight I'm going out with some friends for dinner, which I'm super excited about :D! We're going to my favorite Jewish deli (which is right near where my friends live, and they love it too). I already put my favorite dinner into my Sparkpeople calorie counter for the day and I am well within goals! With my Jenny Craig breakfast pizza and a baked potato for lunch, I can enjoy my dinner without any guilt. I also have a planned snack of hummus and carrots to tide me over because dinner tonight will be at 8pm, which is late for me. But not later that I was eating in Italy, so it shouldn't be a problem. I'm setting myself up for success and it feels good! I even have a few calorie saved in case someone wants to share dessert ;). But I'm usually so full after my meal, I can skip it!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday!!!!!!!!!!
