Weights before work this morning. Pretty good session, i’ve been doing better with my energy for strength, even though my stomach is still bothering me.
Adaptive Motion 3 mile “run” at high resistance after work, before dinner with sister. I wanted to run outdoors, but knew I had to go to the gym to talk to them about my annual renewal. 6 years!
Pre-workout snack: Almond Butter (that I ground myself at Whole Foods) on a rice cake
Post Workout/Breakfast #1: Another egg-wich with hot tea. I’m weird, I actually prefer most hot teas with no sweetener.
Lunch: veggie soup and a salad with kidney beans, chickpeas and some quinoa tossed in with some balsamic vinaigrette. Yes, there is an oil sheen on my soup, I added my 1tsp of EVOO to it to get some good healthy oils in!
Snack: Cottage cheese with strawberries and chia seeds, no cocoa this time. I don’t really mind this so much without the sweetener.
Dinner: Sister date at Spicy Pickle. They have a new menu now, about 60% of the old stuff stayed on the menu. Tried one of their limited edition salads (the Santa Fe). I didn’t take a photo, but I should have. It was grilled chicken, cheddar cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, romaine, grilled balsamic onion, with spicy chili vinegrettte. WINNER!
No photo and not one I could borrow from their site either 😦 I was originally going to get the new Santa Fe sandwich (my sister did), but I wasn’t feeling fabulous, so I opted for the salad option. They no longer have my veggie soup, which is heart-breaking. I LOVED that darn soup. I got it as a side with my Bastille Panini every single time. (or the occasional El Rancho salad).
Snack: Ok, for the first time I REALLY missed sweetener. Dan finished off the strawberries and peaches. He doesn’t really eat fruit, so I wasn’t the least bit upset, I want him to eat produce! I put my yogurt in a bowl with some nuts and ate it. Not really a fan. I at least need fruit to help plain yogurt. I even tried to add a T of almond butter, which didn’t help things.
Thursday is my Friday. YAY!
