Since today was only a half day of work with kids, I actually had a full hour to enjoy my lunch — how exciting is that? At least now that I’m on vacation (well, one more day) I’ll be able to take advantage of these lengthy lunches more often!
I didn’t have time to pack anything this morning, so I took advantage of the extra time to head home for my mid-day meal. All morning, I had planned on making a smoothie, but by the time I got home, my tastes totally changed, and I went the sandwich route. Weird how that happens sometimes, isn’t it?
A whole wheat Arnold sandwich thin, spread 1/2 with roasted red pepper hommus, and 1/2 with a partial wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese. I forgot how much I love this stuff — it’s been a while!
I then layered on some romaine, tomato slices, pickles, & 2 thin slices of the hubby’s black forest deli ham. It tasted wonderful!!
Enjoyed with some carrot sticks on the side
And you know I definitely couldn’t leave the house without one of THESE! I had to stop myself from devouring the entire pan of them – they’re just SO good.
Just look at that goey, chewy texture in there…I can’t get enough!
I had been planning on hitting up the gym after work today for my usual Wednesday BodyPump class, but I’m kind of undecided. This last week of school has been so busy and pretty stressful, and I’m just not looking forward to going like I usually do. I don’t know, maybe I should just take today to relax, and start things back up tomorrow??
What do you do when you’re lacking the motivation to exercise? Can you tell when you really need to just give in and allow yourself time to rest & rejuvenate?
