Whew, today has been a busy day! As nice as it is to have a surprise day off from work, it certainly doesn’t help once you get back to work. Not to mention the fact that it’s report card time…let’s just say, I’ll be happy come Friday!
Luckily, I was able to get myself up this morning for a workout, since I definitely would have bailed on it, had I waited until this afternoon. Unfortunately, I snoozed through half of my workout time (I don’t know what is UP with me?!?) so I only had about 40 minutes. I decided to do the Jillian Michael’s 6 Week Six-Pack Abs workout off of Exercise on Demand.
I know I haven’t been doing this workout consistently, but I must say, it is a great workout!
I was so excited to be able to dig in to my Banana Raisin Pumpkin Bread this morning!!
I cut myself two slices, quickly heated ‘em up in the microwave, and topped one with some peanut butter. My only regret? I should have topped both with the PB – it was an amazing combo!
I ate my slices of bread at home, and brought a banana & my coffee to work with me. Super tasty!
I never ended up taking pictures of today’s lunch, but I can tell you that it was a typical “Monday Usual” – Chobani & granola + lots ‘o veggies & hommus + a great fruit salad of strawberries, cantaloupe, blueberries, and grapes. YUM!
Once I got home from work today, I was feeling a little pooped. I got home much later than usual, which was not much longer after hubby arrived home. The two of us decided a drink was in order. I mean, hey, it IS Fat Tuesday, right?
So I poured myself a glass of wine…
And as hubby and I sat and chatted about our days, and then tried to decide on what to have for dinner, our initial plan of grilled chicken salads was thrown right out the window. Jay wanted to order out. I wanted to save money. So after much discussion, the two of us basically just ended up scrounging around the kitchen for whatever looked good.
My “winning” combo?
I started by steaming up a side of broccoli.
And made myself a grilled sandwich of deli chicken, tomatoes, lettuce, and roasted red pepper hommus, all on two thin slices of last night’s beer bread.
It tasted pretty good, but now my mouth feels totally ripped apart by all the sharp edges of the toasted bread. Man, I hate when that happens!
