Hey, all! How was your day?
Mine was pretty much your standard Tuesday. Seemed like a looooong work day though. In fact, I could have spared myself the entire afternoon portion of the workday!
The morning half passed by fairly quickly, though. Worked through some emails when I got in, while munching on some oatmeal:
Just ya standard oats w/ 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1 c. water, 1 T flax, 1 T. hemp powder, 1 T. brown rice syrup, 1 ripe nanner, and then a 1/4 c. bluberries, and a blob of raw almond butter on top. Deliciousness as always!
I ran out the door today forgetting my gym bag, so over lunch, I ran home and got it, and fixed up something I haven’t had in SUCH a long time.
A wrap! But not just any wrap…a Flat Out! wrap
In the Flat Out fabulousness was a half a yellow bell pepper, cauliflower (the white stuff you see) spinach, and hummus.
With some fresh pineapple and Friendship brand cottage cheese as a sidecar. Nom. There may or may not have been consumption of a cookie that obviously wasn’t spared
Played with the pets a little while, and then headed on back in to work where I worked away for
nineteen more hours the afternoon.
By the time I left work it was SO bitterly cold outside. It was snowing just a tad, but each flake burned on my skin as I walked to my car. Good thing I was parked in the front row, heh
Drove straight on to the gym to do a little speed work. I have a 5k the first weekend of March, and I’d really like to get my time around 28:00. Today’s interval training clocked in at 29:27. Hmm…maybe 28:00 might be a little lofty. We’ll see. Did some chest, triceps, and shoulder work plus a little QT with the stair master, and I was on my way home.
I had a pretty decent pre-workout snack:
But my stomach was still roaring when I got home from the gym. My gym stank trumped the hunger, so I hopped in the shower, dressed and only then made some grub.
Used the rest of the kale to make some kale chips – for this batch I just placed the kale leafs (torn from the stems) on a pan with aluminum foil, drizzle with olive oil, toss, then sprinkle on sea salt and some nutritional yeast. Yum! And no, there were no kale chips spared from this batch.
Piled every veggie we had as a base layer in this huge Tupperware bowl for a salad (spinach, yellow and orange bell pepper, tomato, broc, zuke)
Then added some Quorn meatless chik’n nuggets and goat cheese for added deliciousness…
And had a cup of Trader Joe’s tomato soup my girl Destiny bought me!
And from there I simply basked in yumtopia
Until I heard the husband calling from downstairs, wanting a rematch from last night’s Wii bowling. Oh yeah. Bring it.
Or not. He didn’t spare me on game one, as he got more strikes than spares, and my curve was throwing off my game. Game two I served some whoop ass though I’m pretty sure I was in the 200’s and he, well, was not. Nope…not even sparing his dignity! I sense yet another rematch come tomorrow night.
Currently nomming on some bliss and I write up this post.
Aaaand finished ‘er off. So sad this coconut bliss is gone. But I can’t wait to try more flavors! Too bad it’s $6 a pint at the local health food store. Aah well – totally worth it. Just like the boocha.
Wow, what a food-filled post! You can always tell when a day’s uneventful judging by how many food pictures are in one of my posts.
Tomorrow after work, I’m going to one of my friend’s gym with her. She’s going to be training for the half marathon with me, so we’ll probably work on some kind of running, and perhaps venture into a class! Love shaking up the workout routine
Time to go downstairs and dive back into my book because I’m boycotting the Biggest Loser. I really just can’t stand it anymore. Between product placements and the contestants just getting larger and larger, I really don’t want to contribute to its ratings.
Besides, I can’t put my book down! I even feel the urge to pull it out of my purse while at stoplights! LOL..don’t worry, I suppress that urge, bahaha.
Have a great night and an awesome hump day, bloggies!!
Are you watching the Biggest Loser this season? Or do you feel it’s just gotten a little too out of hand? Obviously I’m not a fan anymore. But adding to my reasoning, it seems like there are SO many commercials, and for two hours, no thanks.
