It’s crazy how your day can turn around in what feels like seconds. My morning started off awful, and when I say awful, I mean shit awful. If anything could go wrong, it did. I dropped my razor a solid 3 times mid-shave, I gained what felt like 20 pounds in 24 hours, I was exhausted and had an exhaustion headache, avoided a “could have been” accident, and nearly ate shit walking up the stairs to work.
On my drive into work I was already so over this day that I told myself I wouldn’t be surprised if I took tomorrow as a personal day. It was that bad.
Somehow my protein shake and a hot green tea, along with a lengthy conversation with Jen made my morning turn around a little. However, it was talking with Jaime and Lindsay and having them tell me everything would be fine was what really made my morning turn from awful to good. I can always count on my girls to snap me out of a funk.
The morning got even better when I tried Chobani Pear for the first time, and holy mackerel is that baby amazing!
This might be my new favorite flavor of Chobani. Sorry Strawberry Banana, but there’s a new mayor in town! The sweetness level was perfect and the mini chunks of pear worked so well with the taste. Great job Chobani, now send me a lifetime supply of the pear!
Before my lunch time leg workout I also enjoyed a Honeycrisp apple (which is impossible to eat quietly, just ask The Prospect since I interrupted Sunday’s football game with my loud bites) and a handful of almonds that actually tasted more like pistachios… Yum!
For my leg workout, I decided to morph 3 workouts together, 1 of which was from a training session I previously had.
It looked a lot like this:
I completely spaced and forgot to do the backwards lunges, and I also only did 1 set of the 4 squats on the Smith Machine. Additionally, I threw in 2 rounds of 30 high knees and 30 jumping jacks.
I left the gym drenched in sweat after burning 444 calories. Perfect little lunch time workout!
After my workout, my roasted veggie addiction was in high gear, so I finished off my last container of veggies and ate it alongside an Amy’s veggie burger, which was served on a bed of spinach and Ezekiel bread. I washed my lunch down with my go to vitamins: a chewy Probiotic because I’m a kid and it tastes like candy, fish oil, a multi-vitamin, C0 Q-10 and D3 (because mah girl Jennie McCarthy swears by those and she knows all). When it comes to viti’s, it’s all about WWJMD.
Nothing too crazy going on this evening. I have several errands to run at the mall, including a return at AE and hopefully picking up a new workout shirt from The Gap, preferably black so my obnoxious sweat isn’t so noticeable.
I also have a phone date with my college gypsy Nicole. We have so much to catch up on and I’m bursting at the seams in anticipation!
