Sleep Indulgence

Yesterday was rough! I felt like I was running from the minute I stepped out of bed. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I slept in 10 minutes later than I should have. Anyways, I have been super busy at work, trying to prepare for the week that I will be out of the office on my cruise vacation to the Bahamas! It's been very stressful but it will be worth every minute of stress once it comes time to set sail.

Even though all I wanted to do when I got home from work was sleep, I took my dog for a walk. It was unseasonably warm last night (and is today, as well) so I wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather! For those of you keeping track, this was walk number 8 of 10 as part of my 25 by 25 list! After taking Max for a walk, I decided to go to the gym and spent 10 minutes on the stationary bike and 10 minutes on the treadmill. I could have gone longer but I was extremely bored out of my mind. I forgot to take my earbuds so I could listen to music AND my gym buddy stayed at home. Having a gym buddy and/or having music to listen to really does make a big difference for me! Now I'm curious... Do you workout with a buddy and/or do you find music to help you workout longer/harder?

Ham and lettuce salad with a side of leftove baked potato soup.
After the gym, I made myself a big plate of salad and warmed up leftover soup for dinner. I have been on a major salad kick lately. That is one craving I should indulge in more often! Speaking of indulgences, I have been indulging in sleep a lot this week. I am thinking it could be from the time change that is suppose to take effect in a couple weeks. I think my body wants to start early! Since I have been having a hard time getting up in the morning, I decided to make a quiche last night so my husband and I don't have to worry about "making" breakfast for the rest of the week.

I didn't have my usual quiche ingredients, so I just used ham and cheese. Here is what all went in to it:

10 eggs
2 egg whites
1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 cup shredded cheddar
1 slice ham

I baked the quiche for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. After it was finished, I plugged all of the ingredients in to sparkpeople's recipe calculator I found that 1/8 of the quiche had 109 calories; 6.6 grams of fat 1.1 carbs and 11 protein. Not bad for a quick yummy breakfast!


  1. I can't survive the gym without music. My problem with gym buddies is that I have yet to find a SERIOUS one. Usually they are committed and so that makes me not want to go either. Luckily, I have invested in some home workout equipment so I don't have to go to the gym and I definitely have no excuses! ((Plus I'm hoping to score a cheap TV on black friday to hang in the gym so I can just watch my DVR'd shows!

  2. That quiche looks delicious! I hope you've been doing well with night eating this week - I have the same problem & have been thinking of you.
