Today was a short day for me! One of my meeting’s got canceled, so I decided to leave an hour early from work to get a head start on my to-do list (excuse my chicken scratch!):
I made sure to take a break to give some lovin’ to Niko, too:D
Now I just need to wash my make up brushes, sync up my iPhone with my laptop (for instant wireless internet anywhere,) and add one more item to the list – making a meal plan.
Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point inspired me to make a system for meal planning. I always go to the grocery store, and spend way too much money, only to get home and realize I don’t have everything I need for a recipe. So, I’m adapting her version of meal planning (well, the binder part, at least) and putting my own spin on it. Thanks for the idea, Caitlin! 😀
Work was fairly mundane again today (don’t worry, tomorrow it’s gonna be a crazy one :-/) However, I totally forgot my breakfast on the way out the door! I was planning on having Nature’s Path Optimum Zen cereal. Thankfully, I keep a stash of Dark Chocolate Dreams in my desk drawer, and I grabbed a banana as I ran out the door, thus breakfast. 😀
Of course, that didn’t satisfy me for long, so I grabbed an Oiko’s with honey, and noshed on some peanuts.
I used what I made for dinner last night as a variation for my lunch today. I simply took the eggplant part of the meal and sandwiched two sliced between an Arnold’s Sandwich Thin, along with some raw goat cheddar.
I just finished doing some strength training – legs and glutes today, so I did my butt-boosting routine. I haven’t done this in a while, so I expect to be in some (good kind!) pain in the morning 😉
I use the 15 pounders for these exercises (I wish I had 25 lb dumbbells!)
Now I’m off to start preparing Chicken Enchiladas, a la The Fitnessista!
Question: Do you always have the same workload each day at work? Or are some days super boring and some super crazy-busy?
