And I'm tired of it!!! One day it's 70, the next it's 40. ANNOYING!! No, this isn't any different than any other Louisiana winter but that doesn't make it less annoying. Friday night & Saturday night Dean & I went to the LSU games. They won. Yay! It was cold though. Friday wasn't too bad & I had such high hopes for Saturday because the weather was supposed to be warmer. Then there was wind. Really?? Where our seats are the wind was blowing directly into our faces. It was cold. Sunday I woke up bright & early at 7 am. Which we all know was really 6 am. My head was pounding. Well that's lovely. It was definitely a sinus headache. My mom pointed out that Saturday's wind was probably the culprit. Needless to say I missed the Sunday game. I watched a lot of House Hunters.

I did manage to run Saturday morning.
How is it that Tamra's hair looks perfect WHILE she's doing Zumba?? I saw this picture on Twitter. I can assure you when I'm doing Yoglates or running there isn't a hair in place.
After my run I made a protein shake. I love these. I use skim milk, a frozen banana, cinnamon, vanilla extract, peanut butter & a scoop of french vanilla protein powder. I forgot I had frozen blueberries in the freezer so I threw some of those in. I'm not a huge fan of blueberries but I know they're fabulous for you. The smoothie didn't really have a blueberry flavor which was fine with me. I love my Magic Bullet. I know a lot of people just use their blender but then there are a million pieces to clean & I don't have a ton of willpower so if I used the blender I would be making a much bigger shake! This is the perfect size.

Dean & I did a lot of work in the yard Saturday. We trimmed a bunch of stuff & he cut the grass while I pulled weeds. I had anticipated a lovely sunny day. In reality I got a blah overcast day. I'm ready for spring.
For lunch I made an egg & cheese sandwich. Occasionally, I have this for breakfast. It's so good. I use a multi grain english muffin & I toast it & melt a piece of cheese on it. I add bacon bits & a scrambled egg. It's sooo soooo good. I know bacon isn't the greatest for you but I buy these bacon bits that are made from real bacon, not processed & they're not greasy & I just sprinkle some on the sandwich. You can taste the bacon but not get a ton of fat & calories. It really adds a lot of flavor.

Daylight savings time is killing me. I always have a problem getting used to it. My sinuses are still bothering me so I'm taking some meds & that isn't helping the tiredness. I broke down & got a Dr Pepper at work today. All in moderation right??



  1. Hi Traci! I am sorry about your headache, I hate that. I actually LOVE daylight savings time, but then I have the luxury of sleeping in if I ned to or want to. I, too, got ALOT accomplished today and it feels REALLY good. It POURED rain all morning, so I was ready to get stuff done! I love decorating for easter cause it brightens everything up and tells me Spring really IS coming:):) XO, Pinky

  2. Weather is crazy here as well...for your allergies have you ever tried Zyrtec...Don gets the generic at Costco and its REALLY cheap...and works great! I love Spring too...but not Summer so much...to hot and dry...so I'll settle for hopefully a looooooong Spring! Have a great day!!

  3. I feel so bad about your sinus headaches. I get them rarely and they turn me into a big baby! At least you kept up with your running!

    We have a Magic Bullet, too but we haven't used it in a very long time. I like smoothies with a little fruit, a splash of skim milk and lots of ice. I have never tried to jazz them up, I just want to increase my fruit intake.

    Oh yeah, I look just like Tamara when I'm at the gym!


  4. Oh that Tamara....LOL. I hope your sinuses are feeling better.

  5. T has a whole crew at her disposal - NO ONE looks like that at the gym doing anything - unless they aren't doing anything - haha .. anyway DST is killing me too - i'm NOT adjusted yet!

  6. Oh I know about the weather. It changes so fast but the good thing is it will be in the 70's and sunny during the day until Friday. We're having a crawfish party on Friday. Hope your sinuses are better...Christine

  7. I keep thinking about getting a Magic Bullet-I hear good things about them. I've never tried protein powder. My daughter and I are really into this healthy eating thing. She has lost almost 30 pound since the first of the year...mine is a little slower, but my migraines are almost gone. I'm not sure if it is eating less or exercising more, but something is working!

    We had snow today, not much, but with the wind and cold it was awful. Last year it was warm by now, even in Illinois!

  8. VERY ready for the temps to level out here, too.
    I need to drink more smoothies. I hate the texture of certain foods, and I am too busy to cook so voila! I should smoothie/juice.
    I am torn on the bacon bits. I can't decide if it is better to have the fake (bad processed) or the real (evil meat). As with most health crap - it's a crap shoot!
