Glad you all enjoyed my skin care post! If you have topics that you would like me to write about, definitely let me know and I’ll see what I can do. 😉
This morning I had a GREAT workout!
I headed over to the gym at 8:00 and warmed up for my spinning class with some upper body strength. I did bicep curls, shoulder raises and assisted pull-ups on the machine along with 80 crunches on the stability ball.
Spinning as good and hard, as I’ve not been in class for about a week now! I was definitely pushed to my limit numerous times and had to wipe away sweat from my brow every few minutes. Love it!
My post-exercise snack of choice today was a primal strip + fruit leather:
This primal strip, however, was major ICK! I hated the lime flavor and will never buy it again. Texas bbq all the way from now on!
I steamed and showered at the gym (forgot to mention in my skin care post that I really think regular steams have helped my skin as well!) and then went straight for the grocery store to pick up a few essentials for the week. I was pretty proud of myself for staying exactly in my budget; we really didn’t need too much!
- honeydew melon
- organic spinach
- organic eggs
- Hass avocado
- newman’s own cookies to satisfy my mint oreo craving 😉
- almond milk
- new tea!
- Naturally More pb
- light sour cream for Ryan
- Quaker Oatmeal Squares (it was buy one get one free!)
And then since I was out of shampoo I had to buy more that also! Christie had this shampoo in her shower and I fell absolutely in LOVE with it this weekend. I couldn’t wait to have some for my very own; it smells just like a cruise vacation and makes my hair so shiny, soft and manageable!
At this point I was pretty much gnawing my hand in hunger since my snack wasn’t too exciting and I threw away half of my primal strip anyways. I foraged in the fridge for lunch and found the remains of the homemade baked beans I made on Memorial Day! Now, I’m very picky on leftovers and its been a week since I made these but since they are vegetarian they were still a-okay. I wouldn’t eat anything that had been leftover in the fridge for OVER a week but these still tasted fine (actually they tasted even better than when I made them to start!).
I layered half of my fresh, ripe avocado with the leftover baked beans on a warm Ezekiel hotdog bun and topped it with some wheat berries for a little crunch. The result was absolutely divine!
Fresh watermelon on the side!
Delicious, but quite possibly the messiest lunch ever. How do you fit this in your mouth?! 😉
Followed up by a cup of my new Tazo tea (love them!) and a bite of organic dark chocolate, I was good to go!
I am quite a busy girl today and am crossing things off my to-do list left and right but still have a bunch more to tackle…..including my inbox! I do try to be as hasty as possible when it comes to responding to your emails but my server was down all weekend so I am running a little behind right now. You should be hearing from me soon!
My first article on artificial sweeteners was just published this morning on True/Slant. Please check it out!
Homemade lasagna for dinner du jour. I’ll catch up with you all in a bit! 🙂
