I present the chocolate box:
I told you guys it wasn’t anything to write home about…but it was the cause of much stress and frustration over the last couple days!!! Its “glued” together with chocolate and filled with an assortment of chocolate candies and truffles:
More chocolates to take to work today!
Now my lovely little box is sitting in the window of the Chocolate & Sugar classroom. I have to say. I’m glad chocolate is over! That is DEFINITELY not my thing. Sooo messy and intricate. I like digging my hands in bread dough much more! Tonight we start working with sugar and next week I have a sugar sculpture due, so stay tuned!
The good news was that we got out at 11:00 last night so I was in bed around 11:30! And……I just couldn’t take it anymore—-I went to the gym this morning after a two day break! My legs were starting to itch and I just needed to break a sweat. Here’s what I did:
couple minutes on treadmill to warm up
3 sets of triceps kickbacks. 15 lbs. 12 reps
3 sets of shoulder raises. 10 lbs. 12 reps.
2 sets of pushups. 12 reps
3 sets of sitting hammer curls. 10 lbs. 15 reps
3 sets of bent over dumbbell row. 15 lbs. 12 reps
3 sets of back hyper extensions. 12 reps
3 sets of reverse crunches. 12 reps
3 sets of bicycle crunches. 20 reps
3 sets of knee-ins. 20 reps
Total workout time= 30 minutes
Before I left (and sorry! I forgot to take a picture this morning…), I had half of a carrot cake clif bar. YUM! When I got back, I had overnight oats:
With a spoonful of almond butter, half a banana, cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup…..drool.
It’s my last day of work!!!!!! I had to quit now because I’m about to change back to morning classes at school and, therefore, can’t work mornings at Roy’s anymore. It’s bittersweet. This job has worked out perfectly for me and my schedule and the people I work with are like family. I’m all set to train two new girls though this afternoon to take over my position!
So, I bring you my last packed lunch. I packed a turkey/hummus wrap with 3 slices turkey, about 3 tbsp hummus, spinach and jalepinos on a whole wheat wrap with a string cheese and an apple:
And for snacks—-some almonds for this morning with my last (sniff!) cup of coffee at Roy’s and some yogurt with 1/4th of a blueberry/vanilla plank for an afternoon snack.
Why do I feel like today should be Friday?!
