Back In The Lou
My mom and I arrived home from Dallas late last night, so it was a little more difficult to get up for a workout today. It helped that it kind of feels like I have a one day week:) I didn’t feel like I had the energy for a hardcore workout, which was disappointing because it was PERFECT running weather. Instead I hit the gym for 45 minutes on the elliptical and New Rules of Lifting workout 1A.
Done and done.
Literally walked into my closet at 10:30pm, pulled these off hangers, and threw them in my gym bag. Thoughtless. Don’t I looked thrilled to be going to work?
I loaded up on Southwest’s honey roasted peanuts last night, so I didn’t get hungry for breakfast until close to 10am. But I had a delicious one waiting for me when I was ready! Overnight oats with a strawberry and almond butter.
LB asked me for details on how I make my favorite breakfasts so I’m planning a post showing exactly how I make my hot chia oats, overnight oats, and breakfast cookies. Hope that helps some of you out!
I didn’t take the time to pack a lunch last night but I was craving some fresh veggie nutrients. Our cafeteria at work was closed by the time I wanted lunch, so I walked down to Schnucks (our grocery store) to make myself a salad. It had mixed greens, spinach, celery, pinto beans, corn salad, peas, cucumber, carrot, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and grapefruit. Huge:) With oil and vinegar on top.
When I got home from work I made a quick dinner to take on the road. I drank a Green Monster and had some more leftovers of the Curried Barley and Chickpea Salad.
My destination was a wonderful pedicure, and now I’m at Starbucks to catch up on all my Integrative Nutrition work. I got so behind with my trip this week, but I’m excited to listen to the lectures because we are starting to learn about different dietary theories. Starbucks snacks = Chocolate Think Thin bar (my first!) and Tazo Refresh Tea.
A rockin’ Friday night, I know. But I just had a mini vacay to Dallas so it’s okay to do some work tonight. Hope your weekend starts out great!
