Good morning and happy Wednesday!
I was a busy little bee yesterday!
I had a good day at work, and was pooped by time 5:00 rolled around.
It was healthy living day two, and the new-diet grumpiness was in full force by early afternoon. Granted, I will give it the benefit of the doubt and blame it on the fact I forgot to have my morning coffee.
I know! How does one forget such a wonderful thing like that?!
I started my day with a protein shake. I think this was the first protein shake I have ever had. I put 8 oz. low fat chocolate milk, 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, and 1 tbsp powdered peanut butter in a blender bottle, shook it up, and enjoyed.
For lunch, I whipped up a Salad Pool salad. This one was intense and practically had me drooling the entire FORTY minutes it took to prepare. But boy was it good! This salad included: romaine, spinach, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, apples, strawberries, grapes, mushrooms, purple onions, green onions, feta cheese, avocado, pecans, dried cranberries, croutons, quinoa, and shredded rotisserie chicken.
As a late afternoon snack, I enjoyed a whole wheat wrap smeared with peanut butter, a sliced banana, and topped with chia seeds.
I left the office a little later than I wanted, so by time I got home it was definitely time to eat. For dinner, I warmed up some leftover quinoa and topped a bed of it with a veggie steamer bag and a packet of tuna. Very simple and very tasty!
I don’t think the Boy was feeling very well because he got home from work just before 7:00 and almost immediately after getting home, laid down and didn’t wake up until 9:30.
I really wanted to go to the gym, but I didn’t want to wake home. Eventually I became tired and by time 9:30 rolled around I decided to make Tuesday a rest day. 😉
I’m looking forward to a killer Wednesday workout with Mr. Chris…
Question of the day
Do new diets make you grumpy?
—When it comes to being hungry, I get hangry! I really wanted a Sprite with my lunch, but I put my foot down and wouldn’t allow it which just made me all the more grumpy. Haha!
