Happy Valentine’s Day my little sweet hearts! My morning started off with an awesome 3.5 mile run before my coworker greeted me at my desk with a chocolate chip cookie and a peanut butter Oreo brownie.
Ugh. What is it with everyone trying to get me to fail at Lent?! In Nichole’s defense, she had no idea that I gave up peanut butter and sweets, so her thoughtful gesture was touching. While I refuse to let these go to waste or throw them in my freezer for the next 39 days, I’m pretty sure my Mom is going to love eating these.
After enjoying my morning smoothie, I later drooled as I ate a sliced up apple dipped in powdered PB2, and then my double berry (strawbs & rasps) parfait!
I completely forgot to mix everything up last night, so the raw oats and chia seeds weren’t soft and puffy. Instead, I enjoyed a crunchy parfait.
After that settled, I headed over to the gym where I completed a 5 minute elliptical and .5 mile run warmup before hitting leg day. These midget legs of mine sure did feel the burn, and those “this rep is going to kill me” faces I made throughout my workout must have really scared the single men, since I left the gym with no new numbers. 🙁
To continue with my streak of eating clean today, I enjoyed salmon on a bed of veggies.
Watercress veggies are my favorite! I absolutely love the watery crunch they deliver in every bite. My only complaint is that there are never enough in a meal. I would like 50, not 3.
The rest of my day is going to be pretty friggin’ awesome. I haven’t uttered those words ever as a single lady on Valentine’s Day, so there’s proof that I am finally growing up (Mom Dad…!!!!!). Tonight I get to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my best friend forevs, Linds! Since her boyfriend is anti-Valentine’s Day (….and also working), we decided we’d be each other’s Valentine’s!
Your girlfriends never leave you, so I’m all for giving all your extra love to your girls. 🙂
2 1/2 more hours until we stuff our faces with fro-yo! Let’s hope we don’t fro-up tonight!
Whether you’re single, taken or don’t even know your status, enjoy your day as best as you can. I might not have a main man in my life right now, but I’m positive that a night that includes my best friend, fro-yo, and a Cougar Town marathon makes for a fanflippin’tastic Valentine’s Day. Plus, my parents gave me a $25 Target gift card so there’s that too!
Plus, we all know that I’ll be pretending that Cougar Town’s lovable idiot is going to be my pretend boyfriend/fiance/husband for the night. Brian Van Holt, if you are reading this, yes, I’d love to be your Valentine.
