Yesterday was such a fun day!
On my lunch hour, I headed over to the gym to get a little cardio and strength training in. I avoided running altogether because my knee had been acting up, and decided to warm up with 10 minutes on the stair master. Brutal. I then hopped on the bike for 10 minutes before playing with kettlebells. I completed a total of 60 kettlebell squats, 60 kettlebell swings, and 30 standing side kettlebell crunches. I finished up with 5 minutes on the rowing machine before taking a long walk back to work to soak up as much sunshine as possible.
After my workout, I finally tried eating a Quest choco chip cookie dough bar warmed up and holy crap it was glorious!
It tasted just like a fresh, warm chocolate chip cookie. This is the only way I will ever eat one of these bad boys ever, ever again.
I enjoyed my Quest bar with a big tub of roasted brussels sprouts and asparagus that I prepped Sunday night. I had brussels seeping out of my skin for the rest of the day. Just wait, brussels sprouts perfume will be the next biggest craze.
Shortly after finishing my hodge-podge lunch, we celebrated my coworkers birthday with angel food cake, fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream.
I skipped the angel food cake since I wasn’t all too hungry, and loaded up with fresh raspberries, blackberries and strawberries, atop a ginormous glob of whipped cream. I also made a plate of seconds and enjoyed it as my dessert last night.
I had a tennis date with Jenny at 6, so after work, I headed up to change and grabbed a quick bite to fill me up for several hours.
I enjoyed a bowl of my Mom’s panola (paleo granola) in a bowl of almond milk and topped with banana slices.
It was then tennis time with Jenny! When we got to the courts, the high school tennis team was practicing, so we decided to take a walk around the lake until they finished up.
We were only able to play for roughly 25 minutes, but we still had a blast.
We got a little weird before calling it a night. I had so much fun and cannot wait until we can play more and the little high schoolers stop hogging our courts!
