It's snowing!!!!!!!!!!! In ALABAMA. Beware: Tons of pics

Yes, I know most of you hate the snow, but since us Alabamians NEVER get snow, this is a big deal to me. :-) We did get snow last year up North, but I'm from South AL, so only just drove through it. It was so funny--I got a text from my mom, who said it was sprinkling snow down their way, and I just knew it had to be snowing here! I jumped out of bed and flung open the curtains! There it was...all over! I of course took photos this morning.

Brady does NOT like the snow. He stood in one spot.....and shook.

He finally did some smelling...

Snow covered rooftops. hahaha

Trying to make him be still for a few pictures! Come on, now dog!

My car :-)My snowball--it's in the freezer by the vodka. LOL

A run down yesterday eats:

Had a tasty egg white scramble with cheese, onions and tabasco sauce :) Even looked good in the pan! LOADS of protein to kickstart the morning.

Lunch was a new recipe called Mexican Halibut courtesy of my fave, Oxygen magazine. The side chunky salsa was spicy (thanks, jalapeno), halibut was AMAZING (and expensive! two filets for $18?! AH! I could bought makeup with that! LOL). Let me know if you make it. It's worth it. AND full of protein!

Mexican Halibut

3/4 cup fresh pineapple (I used canned though)
2 tbsp diced red bell pepper
2 green onions, sliced
1 tsp minced jalapeno pepper
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
4 4-oz halibut filets
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Fresh ground black pepper to taste

* Make salsa: Combine pineapple, bell pepper, jalapeno, green onions, cilantro and giner in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

* Grill halibut until seared. Over halibut sprinkle lemon juice and black pepper and cook 10 minutes per inch of thickness, until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with the salsa.

I decided my workout yesterday was going to be kick-ass, and oh was it. Beforehand I had a half of a sweet potato to load up on carbs for energy, topped with laughing cow swiss. It did the trick. I stayed for an 1 hour, 20 minutes doing cardio and legs.

Stairmachine: 20 minutes
Treadmill: Running interval workout (HARD! Couldn't make it through the whole thing. Granted this was my first go at it.)
Legs, legs, legs! They were burning after!

It's 10am and I have yet to eat anything. I've decided to just break down and eat this:

It has ALL of my daily carb limit packed into one package, but I figure I eat it, then do my workout later, and I'm all good. I've decided I'll be aware and "smart", but will not to let carbs rule my life too much from here on out. Especially on weekends. It looks good, aye? I can't wait to try it. 21 Grams of protein.

Yesterday it has been three days since I checked my mail--weird. Checked it Saturday and I finally received some of the goodies I bought off ebay for a fraction of the regular price!!

OPI nailpolish in "Taupeless dancer", Mac's fafi blush in Fashion Frenzy, Mac's creamsheen lipstick in Gleam, and TA-DA!! A itunes gift card. I have a credit card, when I use I get itunes rewards once I spend so much money. Worth it.
That's all for today...I hope! Happy snow day (but come ONNNNN Spring!)
