Getting ready for a new week

Whew my back hurts tonight from my barn work.  Since it's spring everything is thawing now which means more work for me haha!  It'll only be a few times that it will be real bad until I get everything scooped up that was frozen.  So I spend 2 1/2 hours working today, but it was a good time to work on the tan! haha!!  It felt like spring today, so nice!  If your curious out there 2 1/2 hours of barn work equals about 1300 calories burned!  I would say well worth the trouble haha!!
Yesterday I delivered a car to Glenwood Springs for my dad and it was a lot of driving haha.  Don't worry I was still pretty good.  I brought a protein bar along with me and a special k snack bar.  Also my water bottle.  Now while driving I couldn't help but think of ideas to get a work out in while driving.... There's always the simple ab work out of sucking your gut in so that your pulling your bellybutton to your spine and hold for ten seconds....then repeat haha.  I also did some arm exercises using my water bottle, but don't worry I only did those while the weather was nice during my drive haha because I could only use one hand at a time on the wheel.  Another good leg workout would to life your toes off the ground while keeping your heels on the ground and do several them, then switch and lift your heel off and keep your toes on the ground.  Great leg workout for while in the car haha.
Boy I sure have a great menu planned out for this week, I'm super excited!!!!  Once again I'm doing the special K challenge this week.  Its actually really easy to do and great for on the run!  I haven't weighed in yet for the week, plan on doing it in the morning!
So today I did not each much during the day, but for dinner I had Mexicali, thank you Alex and Ken!!  I calculated it up and that burrito had about 1040 calories! YIKES!! Oh well, I totaled up my calories for the day and I'm at 1,200 calories which is great haha!  I can't go higher than 1500.  Honestly I should be hitting about 1200 each day, but it's so hard for me to do!! I"m lucky that I'm hitting over 1000 and I see that as a good start to healthy eating, one step at a time!!
Well I feel like I"m just rambling so I will sign out for the night.  Be sure to check back for all the great recipes this week!! I'm So excited!!!!
