Hi lovely blog friends! Happy Tuesday! I'm having such a hard time keeping track of the days. I feel like I've been on the go for so long now! I'm really looking forward to getting settled in the new place.
Yesterday flew by! It was a somewhat stressful day at work but it ended up fine and I got a lot done. To fuel me through, I started the day out with a delicious bowl of oats. I had some bananas that were bordering on being overripe last Friday so I cut them up in baggies and placed them in the work freezer. One of my frozen nanners was the perfect addition to my oats. So tasty and creamy. I topped them off with a packet of barney butter. It was like a delicious frosting on top. :)
For lunch, I had a whole wheat english muffin toasted and topped with hummus, fresh basil and fresh cuc slices. On the side I had some more cuc and organic baby carrots. Yum. I loved the mix of the creamy hummus and the refreshing basil and cuc.
For my snack, I had a plain oikos with a nectarine and some chia seeds. This was my first time trying them and I'm not sure what to think yet. They were fairly innocuous - kind of like poppy seeds until they got in my mouth and became kind of slimy. Maybe I didn't leave them in the yogurt long enough to let them do their thing...
After work I headed to the gym to get some cardio in before another yoga class at Healthworks. I did 25 minutes on the Arc Trainer while reading my Thrive Diet book - its so good.
After my cardio, I headed out to Healthworks. On the way I had the other half of my Koka Mocha pro bar. It was so good - I didn't remember it tasting as good the first time around. Yum.
Yoga.was.so.hard. I was sweating like crazy about five minutes in. There were a ton of core and leg strengthening poses (that were held forever!), not to mention all of the chatarungas. Yikes! I loved it. :)
After yoga I headed home to have some dinner lickity split. I heated up an Amy's chili, rice and corn bread meal. The corn bread was a little dry, but otherwise it was super tasty.
Because I'm halfway moved out and there has been a lot of construction going on, I packed up my stuff after dinner and headed to Brian's parents' house. I knew I wouldn't be comfortable at home (only home for a couple more days) so it just made sense.
On the way, I couldn't resist stopping at a new ice cream stand to get some gelato. I had one scoop of tiramisu and it was amazing - especially with a square of dark chocolate that I pocketed from home. :)
I was so happy that I decided to spend the night with Brian's parents. I was so much more comfortable and happy there. I'm very thankful to have them right around the corner. :)
I hope you guys have a great day. Brian and I are planning on staying at his place tonight so I'll be able to post as usual!
