Happy Friday, guys:) Hope you’ve had a splendid week!
Yesterday morning I rescheduled all of my morning clients to the afternoon so I could sleep in a bit from my late night the night before. However, I’m a product of habit – routines are the death of me! Alas, I woke up bright and early at 6:15 anyway.
For breakfast, I had a fierce craving for oatmeal, but was out of bananas! Well, bananas that weren’t either flattened or frozen anyway. What to do, what to do?
I also added an egg white to the mix to fluffen it up a bit. The apple were delicious in the oats! Perhaps even better than the usual banana.
After this digested, I cranked out a 30 minute HIIT session on the elliptical..finally. It was one of those days where I had workout ADD. First, I got out my bike, and planned to bike to the gym, do a little lifting, and bike home. But as soon as I peddled out of my neighborhood, I chickened out and came back home. I’ve never done this before, I was helmetless, and it was FOGGY. Recipe for an epic wipe out in my over exaggerated mind.
Then, I got out the garmin and headed out for a HIIT run through the neighborhoods. For one reason or another, I decided that wouldn’t work either, and turned around and headed home. Clearly frustrated by my indecisiveness, I decided I was doing the elliptical. No turning back, dammit!
Good and sweaty, I made a …brown? juice.
Although I find myself “busy,” I have noticed I have time for the little things, like taking Niko on an extra walk or making fresh squeezed juices. This had kale, carrots, and apples. Pretty tasty despite the sewage water look it’s got goin’ on.
Other eats before I trained a few clients:
chili + Mary’s cracker sticks
Chocolate Oikos, chocolate cheerios, raw almond butter. Decadent? I think so!
Also before I left to train, I popped a little somethin’ somethin’ in the oven for a couple hours set on a low setting of 300º
The Fitnessista’s eggplant curry!
She makes it with a slow cooker, but I got a little angry with mine a few weeks back and chucked it. Just like that.
So a casserole pot did the job wonderfully and was ready for my hungry belly when I got home for the night! 😀
with brown rice…
Texas toast (nothing beats it,) and a glass of pinot. We both really enjoyed it!
This morning, I woke up bright and early for a few morning clients. I had an hour break between two of them, so I planned on getting in a run then.
That, my friends, is a TJ’s flattened banana with some TJ’s raw almond butter. I rolled that bad boy up and ate it pinwheel style. I think I’ve found my new favorite snack…YUM!!
After training and working out, I headed to the grocery store, then Starbucks for a grande-soy-half-pump-vanilla-latte-please, ran a couple other errands, and then got my oil changed.
I was pretty hungry again around this time, and when my friend, Missy, asked me out to lunch, I happily obliged!
We went to Cosi, a cute little cafe uptown:
Since I brought Niko along, we ate at one of the tables outside.
I got the fire roasted veggie flatbread salad with baaaaby carrots:
Mmmm. Was expensive, but delicious!
Got any plans for the night? After I get some Quickbooks business done and vacuum, my parents are coming over for the afternoon! I think we’re gonna shop it up a bit:)
Do you ever get exercise ADD and switch up what you’re going to do last minute? I hate the feeling of being indecisive. Hate it, hate it, hate it. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t still happen from time to time!
Have a great night!!
