Positivity Wins

Gurgle, gurgle goes my stomach. Why can’t I figure out what makes my tummy do all this weird stuff? I do not like it.

But, let’s focus on the positives.

Today was a good day.

Nick and I ate lunch outside today, and the weather was just beautiful.


I had some of my leftover oat groat/zucchini/tomato/chickpea salad from the other night, plus some leftover roasted broccoli and cauliflower.


This was so filling! I brought an apple to have along with it, but didn’t need it so it will be part of my snack tomorrow  :)

Then we went and walked around Books a Million + Ann Taylor Loft. I am in love with a few dresses in that store…I hope they go on sale soon. I love new fall clothes!

I ended up having a super fun outing today at work! My supervisor took me over to that new froyo place we have here and we each got some for an afternoon snack. Yum. Today I got a small original flavor topped with pineapple and coconut – it was awesome.

Another positive was that I did yoga after work. Yummy, right Polly? I did 2 downloads today: one detox flow and a moon salutation (even though it was still light outside!) from yogadownload.com. I like being able to make up my own 40 minutes by choosing 2 different downloads! It’s fun. And it makes me feel great.

Nick ate his dinner while I was yoga-ing downstairs, so I came up and just made a quick and easy burger bowl.


I wasn’t in the mood to put a burger together, so I just put it on top of some romaine + tomatoes in a bowl and added my piece of corn. I love having meals in bowls – I don’t know what it is. I liked having a little bite of burger with some lettuce + tomato each time.


And you can’t go wrong when the corn + tomatoes are perfectly fresh.

Now I just have to floss, pack my lunch, and I am done for the night.

    I read all night tonight for class, and it was such a positive experience. I need to read more often!

  5. I gave up a long time ago figuring what made my stomach gurgle b/c it seems like everything does! Oh well I still love my food. Funnily enough, I’m wearing my Ann Taylor dress right ow. Love their clothes. If we were the same size I would send you some of my dresses. I’m one of those terrible people who only wears things once which really hurts my wallet!

    My positives are that I got to the trainer this morning and had a great workout while talking about her new babies…she just had triplets.
