Is it me or is this summer flying?!?! Despite today bringing us closer to mid-summer, the weather was actually cooler than it’s been in quite some time. The AC was on full blast in the office and I ended up turning my foot heater on. The guys laugh at me because I always seem to be cold. My car’s seat heater is on well into the summer. Something must be wrong with me. 😉
Anyway, I’m feeling much better than I was yesterday. I think the shock from the accident just got to me. Today I’m just feeling a little run down, but much more like my usual self.
Work seemed almost endless, even though I was constantly busy. I had a backlog of work, since I left early yesterday. I’m pretty much caught up now and tomorrow I’ll be able to head out for the holiday weekend with a clear mind.
This morning started out with getting my sweat on at the gym. I SOOOO could have rolled over when my alarm went off at 5am, but Lisa started a morning workout challenge for herself and I decided I needed the same. I’m always so tired after work and there are endless excuses not to go. Get it out of the way in the morning and you’re good to go for the rest of the day. It’s just those initial few seconds of having to kick your butt out of bed and then it really isn’t so bad at all. I’ve never walked out of the gym regretting a workout, but I have regretted not getting my booty there. Day 1 of the July Workout Challenge was a success! Now, I just have to keep it up!
I wish I could say something exciting happened today, but…..it so didn’t. How dare work get in the way of me finding creative ways to fill my time! I mean, really!! 😉
Don’t want to bore ya, so here’s a look at my day in eats. A bunch of my favorites that at least made my day a delicious one!
Breakfast: A raisin Food For Life english muffin spread with laughing cow cheese and a side of egg whites.
Kind of looks like a smiley face, no? 🙂
Iced hazelnut coffee and some water were also necessary.
Lunch: A salad from Katzenberg Kafe which included grilled chicken, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, cucumber & red onion on a bed of romaine.
Snack: Creamy Chobani mixed with sliced strawberries, mango (that I wrestled yesterday) and a sprinkle of blueberries.
Protein packed and berry good!
Yep, I’m a dork! At least I’ve come to accept and embrace it. 😉
I finished and I was still a lil hungry.
I then resorted to licking my container clean.
Dinner: Baked chicken wrapped around a mixture of spinach, fat-free ricotta, a lil parm & parsley was complimented with a side of wilted spinach and a sweet potato.
I added garlic, onion, mushroom and a pepper confetti to the spinach. Twas yummy!
My meals were very colorful today. 🙂 There’s still one more to go, although, I’m not quite set on what it will be yet.
Now, it’s time to veg on the couch and stay on call for a friend who is on a Match date. She need only text one letter to me and the “code red” operation will be set in motion.
We’ve made it over the hump and past the hurdle. Now, just get through Friday and let the festivities begin!!
Have a great night!
