Happy Tuesday everyone!
I’m feeling much less stressed this week because I got my schedule for work and I got Thursday off, which means I have a whole day during the week to catch up on stuff that needs to be done like cleaning and working on a report for my class that is due on Friday. As for today though, it’s off to work and school again and I’m proud to say that Dexter was a good kitty last night and slept half the night on the bed and half the night under the bed again.
When I got up this morning, I ate half a banana with almond butter then went to the gym to have an upper body workout. I started off by running for 5 minutes on the treadmill just to warm up, then I did lateral arm raises, the fly machine, triceps, chest press, a few more random arms machines and ended with some abs for another 30 minute workout. 30 minutes is all I really have time for in the morning, plus the gym I workout in (my apartment gym) is super tiny and there just isn’t that much to do. You have to get creative!
When I got back, I made HempPlus waffles for breakfast with some walnuts, maple syrup, the other half of my banana and a mango. It’s randomly cold outside and this warm/sweet breakfast was just what was needed!
I’m craving pb&j today but don’t have peanut butter so instead I packed an almond butter and raspberry preserves pita for lunch. I used about 1.5-2 tbsp almond butter, raspberry jam and a whole wheat pita. I’m also bringing an apple to have with it.
For a snack I’m packing one of my favorite treats—a Luna tea cake! These are SO good! I am seriously addicted. I tried the chocolate mint the other night and fell in love. Seriously.
There are no pictures from school last night because we didn’t take anything home. We made baklava, ice box cookies and linzer cookies, all which have to sit in the fridge overnight. Expect a ton of photos tonight though as we finish off all those!
