Today has definitely been one of those days where I feel like I’m being super productive, yet I have nothing to show for it. Don’t you hate when that happens? Thankfully though, I have gotten quite a bit done, so I’m gonna keep truckin’ along so I can go have some fun tonight!
Late this morning, I took a break for a little workout. I spent about 40 minutes on the treadmill doing some intervals, and then followed it up with a slightly altered version of this upper body superset workout. Felt great to lift the weight again…it’s been a while. Once I was done with that, I made myself a quick GNC 100% Egg Protein shake to hold me over until lunch. I really do love that stuff!
A couple of hours later, it was time for lunch.
I decided to try out the Trader Joe’s organic tomato and roasted red pepper soup that I picked up over the weekend today.
I added in some extra leftover veggies from my dinner last night too (from a bag of frozen broccoli, carrots, sugar snap peas, and water chestnuts) and, of course, also had to have a generous helping of mini saltines.
My verdict on the soup was that it was good enough to eat…but not great. I have a feeling that the “low sodium” version I picked up may have something to do with my decision, since it didn’t seem to have as much flavor as I was hoping for. I guess next time I’ll have to try adding in a few more spices of my own. Anyone have any recommendations??
Shortly after lunch (okay, as soon as I put the bowl in the sink) I snagged a cookie off the cooling rack.
Geez. Either I’m super hard to please today or my baking skills are just off…booooo.
I’ve since decided that I’ll have to make another batch; I want to be sure I’m only sending out the very best, so I guess we’ll just have to manage with these over here. I mean, don’t get me wrong, they’re still good enough to eat.
Later tonight, I’m meeting up with Sarah, Mal, and Denise (some of my favorite ladies/ family!) for dinner, which I’m super pumped about. Can’t beat a girls’ night out, right??
