Alright…I think I’m finally starting to feel back to normal!
But I will tell you that there is definitely one more factor contributing to this on-and-off grumpster mood, and it doesn’t have to do with sleep. It’s the frigid weather we’re having this weekend…
Yeah. It feels like –4 degrees right now. Aren’t I lucky?
I know, I know…I live in the northeast. What should I expect, right?
Well, expected or not, this girl with the Raynaud’s disease definitely does not like it and all it does is make me want to stay in and hibernate. Unfortunately, that couldn’t happen today, since we sort of needed some food to eat.
But now, I’m a happy camper because…
- A quick pit stop at Target left me with a few brand new pieces of their C9 by Champion line of workout gear, including two of these tops, and a pair of these pants.
- Our house is loaded up on tons of fresh produce…just check out that fruit bowl!
I even picked up clementines today, which I normally doesn’t buy. Don’t get me wrong – I love them – but it seems like anytime I buy a box of them, at least a third of them are no good. But considering the whole box was on sale for only $3.99, I tried my best to find a winner of a box. Fingers crossed.
By the time I got home and put the groceries away, it was a little bit after 5:00, but I actually had the urge to squeeze in a workout. Now you guys, I kid you not when I say that I probably haven’t worked out this late since at least last March when I was still teaching and would take classes at the gym after work.
I wanted something that was quick but would get my heart rate up, so I consulted my Pinterest fitness board, and came across a pin from Sarah Fit that I knew would do the trick (btw, Sarah is awesome and has some great workout videos!).
I did the Strength Train portion of this particular workout, and it totally did the trick. It only took probably 20 minutes but was definitely intense and totally worth it.
Post-workout, it was time for some dinnahhh.
I haven’t done a very good job of getting my veggies in so far this weekend, so I figured since I was on my own, it’d be a perfect opportunity to keep it simple and load up on the good stuff.
I had a little bit of everything in this bad boy, including a hard boiled egg (white) and a Dr. Praeger’s veggie burger.
And some of my favorite balsamic vinaigrette dressing to bring it all together.
I think this was just what the doc ordered…perhaps along with a couple handfuls of this later on.
Now it’s time for me to catch up on a few emails and chill out for the evening. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
