No Short Cuts

This never happens but yesterday I was so caught up with re-staining my chairs I forgot to eat lunch! I did have a few snacks though. In case you’re considering doing some staining of your own, don’t use a 2-in-1 stain + poly! We’re definitely newbies because we didn’t shake up the can very well so it wasn’t very dark, then today we stir it thoroughly and now it’s super dark and thick and looks like tar. We’re gonna have to re-sand and buy some actual stain and polyurethane. Not happy =(

Here’s yesterdays meals:

Meal Food Calories
Breakfast skim milk 85
corn flakes 100
Snack smoothie 180
wheat thins 140
apple sauce 50
Dinner Chinese food 713
Dessert 2 bites of ice cream 30
Total 1298

I went on a 2 mile run around the K-State campus and then did some strength exercises.  I did crunches and then some arm exercises with my 5 pound weights as well as 20 modified pushups. I’m not quite to the point where I can do pushups in proper form yet. After my workout I gulped up one of my fruit smoothies!

For the smoothie I added:

A single serving of greek yogurt
1 banana
5 strawberries
1/2 cup frozen fruit (grapes, blueberries, strawberries, mango)
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 orange juice
A handful of fresh spinach

My smoothie calorie amount changes everyday because I just throw a random amount in the blender every time and I also share it with Daniel.  Just so you know.

Since I’m doing all my staining in my mom’s garage she offered to buy chinese food for dinner and you know I can’t pass on free food! It was good, but not the healthiest option.  And yes, I ate everything on that plate!

Now excuse me while I go back to Home Depot for the 4th time in a week. Yep, I suck at DIY projects. Hopefully the finished product looks better than what it is right now. I’ll share photos later of the process when it’s finally done (probably next week). Wish me luck!
