Man, I was hungry today!
I packed a simple salad of romaine + roma tomato
and then dumped a serving of my veggie and barley risott-no on top to maximize the veggie goodness.
Plus some watermelon! It’s still going, and going…
I have at least 2 cups left! Watch out for more tomorrow :)
Work was pretty normal this afternoon, but my stomach was super hungry for some reason.
I had this cookie I picked up at lunch
It definitely looks bigger than it was – just a regular-a-little-smaller-than-my-palm chocolate chip cookie.
Of course, that didn’t put a dent in my hunger so I had the snack I packed for today – one serving of kashi sunshine + about 1/2 cup milk.
I love this cereal! It tastes like a mix of Capn’ Crunch and Kix. It’s Just Sweet Enough :)
Finally, my belly was happy. I drank some water and made it through the day.
Nick had a chiropractor appointment today, so I came home and did 2 20-minute yoga downloads – the Power Vinyasa Flow and a Hip Opening Flow. What a great way to spend 40 minutes winding down and breaking a sweat after work! I was only going to do one download, but the laundry was still in the dryer and Nick wasn’t back yet, so I just went ahead and kept going. I’m glad I did, because that hip opening download felt ah-mazing.
Plus, it’s always easier for me to spend more time working out when I know I have easy leftovers in the fridge.
We heated up the leftovers of the Hawaiian Chicken dish from last night, and I think it was even better!
Dishes with flavors like ginger, soy, and chile/garlic seem to get better after they sit. Tonight’s meal definitely proved that point – it was so spicy and the ginger really stood out tonight.
Makes me want to say aloha :)
I’ve been pretty productive tonight!
- Yoga – done
- Laundry – folded + put away
- Dinner – eaten and enjoyed
- Pajamas – on ;)
- Fun breakfast plan for tomorrow – done
- Hard boiled eggs – cooking right now
- Lunch packed – about to do that
Now the only things left are to have some popcorn + watch Top Chef Masters tonight! The guest is Neil Patrick Harris, aka Barney from HIMYM, aka Doogie Howser.
