Crazy Tuesday!

There simply are not enough hours in the day! But knowing myself... were there more, I'd find a way to max them all out. Yeesh. Here's a shot of my desk... that was at 9am. It's even worse now, lol.

Somewhere in that mess is my cell phone. Hmmmmm. Might should find that!
 Here's a quick rundown of what all that is... ads being placed in Canada, ads being placed in Flagstaff AZ, displays and marketing materials (36x36 map; 21x17 podium pieces) for a new sales center in Flagstaff, brochure for Flagstaff, website edits, MLS changes, more ad quotes for other newspapers, website work for other communities, craigslist notes (yeah, that won't happen today), a defective toner that must be returned, Homeaway.com changes, an email blast, and more printing quotes.

And yes, with the exception of Craigslist, it will all get done today. Oy. When I'm asked what I do for a living, Girl-Friday comes to mind, but that's not very descriptive. Lol! Needless to say, I'm a bit frazzled.

Moving on... Here's today's food:

I started my day with a killer 30 minute interval set on the stair-mill. Woot! Intervals! I was so excited to do those again! My knee didn't bother me much, so I'm crossing my fingers and knocking on wood :-)  Here's how it went...
5 minutes warmup at level 4
2 minutes stepping up with kickback and squeeze (squeeze that butt!)
1 minute cool down
2 minutes side steps (1 min each side) with side-leg raises, quad and butt squeeze at the top of the raise.
1 minute cool down
1 minute - increase to level 6 and go every other step
1 minute - every other step with a kickback and butt squeeze
2 minute cooldown
1 minute - reduce to level 3, step up and squat down (I reduced it that slow so I wouldn't fall off, hehe)
1 minute cooldown
2 minutes - increase to level 6 and go every other step
1 minute cooldown
2 minutes -reduce to level 4 - side steps (1 min each side) with side leg raises, quad and butt squeeze at the top of the raise.
1 minute - every other step with a kickback and butt squeeze
3 minutes - single steps, pushing through each step, squeezing the glute & quad
4 minutes - regular walking at level 5.

I then headed back home, grabbed a pumpkin muffin (perfect carb to protein ratio for post-workout!) and coffee, and got ready for the day. Here's the rest of my food...

Breakfast: 1/2 cup dry oatmeal mixed with 1 scoop protein powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup pumpkin, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and 1 Tbsp NuttZo plus a small grapefruit.

Snack 1: 1 cup plain fat free Chobani Greek yogurt with 1/4 cup homemade granola.

Lunch: 4 oz grilled chicken breast, 1/2 cup brown rice, 1.5 cup steamed zucchini

Snack 2: chicken muffin and an apple-pear.

Dinner tonight will be either Taco Salad or leftover Enchilasagna :-)

I forgot to share this with you yesterday!! When Tab and I were grocery shopping, we came across this... Can you see what that is??

Indeed, those are maple frosted, over-sized donuts sprinkled with bacon.  I literally could not look away. I'd heard of such things but thought they were urban myths. Evidently this myth has taken up real-life residence in my local grocery store! YIKES!

What crazy food have you seen lately?
