Happy Hump Day!
Today started out with another perfect bowl of simple oats. I really enjoyed them yesterday and was craving them when I woke up this morning. YUM. When I got into work I dug right into my apple, and had a cup of coffee. I recently bought some silk french vanilla creamer, and i love it. Makes the perfect cup of coffee with an added packed of stevia.
Before I hit the gym during lunch I had the other half of my ww cin raisin english muffin last night with some fresh ground pb. heaven 🙂 and the perfect fuel for the GRUELING workout that folllowed.
Group power was a killer today. My arms are feeling a little numb while typing right now. Let me explain how this class is set up. Its broken up into different sections to work on your different body parts individually. Today was back, shoulders, lunges and squats, triceps, and abs. you do each section non-stop, then have about a minute in between the sessions to stretch out and get ready to move onto the next one. Lunges completely kicked my butt today. I thought my quads were going to break off my legs! When squats were up immediately following the lunges, i was actually relieved! HA! relieved to be doing squats?? thats how rough the lunges were.this instructor packs a serious workout in 45 minutes. i’m so glad i finally got the courage to try this class!
Lunch was some tuna salad with onions, and celery, with some kashi crackers and cucumber. I had a little clementine too. I used plain yogurt instead of mayo with the tuna. It’s way healthier for you this way, but it doesn’t really taste good to me. It was kinda watery. I missed my mayo. What kind of mayo does everyone use? i’ve only ever gotten the regular Hellmann’s kind, but i’m sure theres got to be some ones out there that are much better for you. any suggestions?
i am SO glad its wednesday! halfway through the work week, which means only 2 days until my bf comes to visit 🙂 He lives in NY. my original plan after college was to move to NYC with my best friend from high school, and then I would only be like 45 minutes away from the boy, but it was so hard to find a job there. It seemed like I needed to get some experience first before I could land a solid job in the city. I got a great offer in Baltimore, and figured I could save up enough money while I get the experience I need to make the move. So we’ve been long distance since graduation in May 😦 we make sure that we see each other every 2 weeks, and so far we have only once gone longer that that. a weekend doesn’t seem like a long enough visit at all, and I always wish the stays were longer. We also adopted a puppy from the humane society when we were at school and shes with him right now. Her name is Eden. I’ll be sure to post some pics of her when she comes this weekend too. Ah, shes such a doll.
