Okay, I know I live in the northeast. I know it’s the dead of winter. And I also know this is nothing new…BUT. When it’s negative two degrees outside? Ehhh, I’m sorry but that is just downright miserable. Only 26 more days until sunny Mexico, baby!
So I never came back to visit you all after yesterday morning’s post; it wound up being a pretty busy day and by the time I got home, made dinner, and sat down, I wound up falling asleep on the couch about an hour and a half later. I was downright pooped last night.
I thought that since I made it to bed early I might be able to swing an early morning workout this morning, but when the alarm went off today, every part of my body was screaming nooooooo. No worries though; I have time after work today…I just may need some extra motivation from you all. Yes…just like many of you need motivation to get up in the mornings? I need it for the evenings. Just goes to show what different breeds we all are, I suppose!
As far as eats go from yesterday? Well, I have a few to share, starting with breakfast.
I had my coffee plus a container of apple cinnamon Love Grown Foods hot oats with blueberries mixed in. I’ll tell ya, I’ve been loving these hot oats since I first received them back in December, but have been trying really hard to space them out since I only got four and they aren’t in stores near me yet (although I believe they’re on amazon?). Either way, I only have one left. Boooo.
Lunch was super quick and easy, thanks to some leftover salad from Tuesday night’s dinner. To give it a little protein, I added a pouch of chunk light tuna, which was good, but not great.
Other snacks from the rest of the day included the last of my bag of popchips (yes, yet another desk snack),
and a small container of cottage cheese with pineapple.
Dinner was something that we actually planned ahead for (yay for meal planning!), Tilapia Tacos with Roasted Corn Relish.
I love this meal for so many reasons. For one, it’s light, healthy, and just super delicious. But really, I love it because it’s done within about 20 minutes. Quick and speedy dinners are definitely favorites in our household!
She said it tasted “just like cookie dough” and since I was really craving something sweet, I gave it a try. Well Colleen, I’m not quite sure it tastes juuuuust like cookie dough (just like I think banana soft serve reeeeally doesn’t taste just like soft serve, and desserts with chickpeas really do taste like chickpeas), but I will say that it was a mighty delicious dessert and I would absolutely make it again. Thanks for the inspiration, my fellow cold-despising friend.
So now…about that workout motivation for tonight…
Questions for the Morning: Would You Rather (it’s baaaack!)…
- Be in extreme cold or extreme heat?
- Workout first thing in the morning or at the end of your day?
- Eat a large portion of a “healthy” dessert or a small portion of something decadent?
