Ugh....last night's sleep might possibly be the worst sleep I've had in a LONG time. I just could not fall asleep and when/if I did....I could not stay asleep. I was waiting to see if my daughter woke up screaming again (she didn't....of course), I was thinking about all the things I have to do in the next few days AND I was stressed about my kid's flu shots today.

So, the morning started out with coffee (DUH) and an English muffin with Barney Butter and an apple. Technically, my son ate my apple. I was allowed to eat one piece of it though. I am just not inspired when it comes to breakfast right now. Maybe the New Year will bring breakfast inspiration?

After breakfast, it was off to the doctor's office. Turns out, all my worrying was for nothing...both my kids were super brave and didn't cry. My son even announced that "it didn't really hurt." That definitely made my day.

With my renewed energy, I went to the gym. I did some weights for a half hour and some interval training on the treadmill for 20 minutes. Good stuff....except for the fact that the stupid weights at the gym gave me this NASTY blood blister on the inside of my hand. You see....any weights above 10 pounds there do not have that nice neoprene (spell?) cover so my 15 pounders hurt my hands....literally this time. :(

I came home and heated up leftover pasta and marinara with some veggies (spinach, zucchini, green bell pepper and onions).

I spent the rest of the day doing laundry (am I always doing laundry?) and getting food ideas/recipes squared away for next week's Big Bear trip (I am the chef for the trip).

By the time dinner rolled around, I was beat. I did not intend to have any wine tonight....but I was cold and tired and red wine just sounded so comforting....so I indulged. It's what the holidays are all about right?

.....I was also too tired to cook so Pizza it was!!!! YES! My favorite. Actually, the kids and the hubby had Pei Wei but I was not in the mood for that. My very generous husband offered to pick up pizza for me from the place nearby: Sublime Pizza. I went for the veggie:
Plate #1:

Plate #2:

And there was almost a plate #3. But I stopped. Actually it was my husband that suggested I should wait a bit to see if I was still hungry. So I did.....and I brushed my teeth so I wouldn't eat any more. (This usually works). It worked today......barely....I could have eaten another piece easily. :)
