Yes, I’m hittin’ the road today for a trip home again! I wasn’t planning on going home this weekend, but all of my roommates are, and I knew I’d be very lonely and depressed this holiday weekend if I stayed alone!
Yesterday was work-a-riffic! I started the day with a 25 minute quick walk to start the day fresh! And then the same Kashi waffle combo as yesterday, but didn’t feel overstuffed this time. I only had half a banana this time- guess that other half a banana was super filling? haha. Or not.
The 2-year old actually napped for most of the day, so I didn’t have too much to do, besides hang out with this smiley!
(sorry for the blinds shadow)
Food was not too exciting. The highlight was honestly probably this Starbucks sample I picked up with my coffee on the way to work.
Banana bread, I think? Not sure…but it was really good! Other snacks included carrots in salasa + infinate cups of coffee & creamer before lunch – Kashi Mayan Harvest Bake. Originally I planned to have my Minty Bulgar Peach salad leftovers, but I honestly almost gagged this morning when I tested it out again, so I grabbed this frozen meal:
Sorry, felt too lazy to take it out of the package and create a pretty presentation. ha.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – Best. Frozen. Meal. Ever. So tangy, sweet, spicy, perfect…all in one!
The night was not complete without more of the Vegan Maple Spice Cake and hot chocolate. Mmmmm.
This morning I had the same waffles (yes…I am a creature of habit – plus I wanted to finish off the box!), but satisfied, I left a few bites on the plate:
Okay ladies and gents, I know that looks like nothing, and it’s like “c’mon! That teeny bit couldn’t make much of a difference”, but as someone who has always struggled with intuitive eating (and am also reading the book), I was very proud of this. Alright, y’all? 😀
Followed by a gym trip. I already pushed my run to today, but my knee wasn’t feelin’ it so I’m pushing it yet again to tomorrow. But you know what…that is A-OK!! Listen to your body! I won’t get anywhere pushing through this pain! So instead, I did:
- 30 minutes stairs level 12 (no intervals – b/c going too fast bothers the knee)
- 10 minute elliptical (level 10 – not too hard, but enough to breathe heavier)
- 20 minute strength
- Mostly upper body, but with a teensy bit of ab work
Off to work now, where I am reading a new book (yes – I’m getting a LOT of reading in this summer). I’ll review the Certain Girls and let you know about my new book soon…promise!
The lunch spread for work includes leftover turkey lasagna, carrots & jicama with the Raita dip, strawberries, and a couple apricots.
I nixed the fig flavored Greek yogurt and instead made a green smoothie.
Simple mix of:
- Last of my almond milk
- Frozen mango chunks
- Ground flaxseed
It was deeeeeeelish!
Dora kept my goodies chilled in my cutsie lunchbox!
Then my roommate and I are hopefully grabbing some din-din after work, and hitting the road by 6:00.
Catch up with you all 223 miles north!
