Is it spring yet?
Blahhh…I have a serious case of spring fever and am SO done with all things winter and all this white stuff. BUT, on the plus side, yesterday’s snow storm did allow me to stay and work from home, so I’ll keep my complaining to a minimum. For now.
Luckily it was a slow work day yesterday so I was able to get through any of my work as it came through, while also spending some time with my favorite little boy.
Mmmm…prunes for lunch yesterday. Looks delish, right? Poor guy was in need of some prunes…if ya get my drift.
Shortly after Lucas had his lunch and was down for his second nap of the day, mama made herself a pretty scrumptious lunch, too.
A nice big salad with all of the usual suspects + a packet of chunk light tuna. Honestly, tuna isn’t my favorite topper for a salad, but I needed something with a little more staying power and it did the trick.
I also managed to squeeze in another T25 workout yesterday morning (Total Body Circuit – WHEW!) and I’ve gotta say…the workouts are feelin’ gooood this week. Being able to take just a little bit of time to sweat it out (my challenge is certainly motivating me to move more!) has been just what I needed. And, apparently, I’ve really hopped on the workout train this week because Tuesday’s treadmill workout was just…awesome.
Lucas fell asleep on our way home from the sitter, so I figured I’d switch things up from the T25 workouts and try out a treadmill run. Well, his nap lasted longer than I expected so I took advantage…and wound up completing the longest distance I’d run since well before I was pregnant(?!). Gosh, it felt good. Aaaaaand, I felt quite sore the next day.
But anywho…back to yesterday.
Remember when I got that package from Van’s a couple of weeks ago? Well I just wanted to let you guys know that I’ve tried the strawberry and peanut butter PB&J bars and they are really good. I was totally impressed!
I wound up snacking on one yesterday afternoon to help tide me over before dinner (I’m always snacking on something throughout the day these days…especially with the increase of workouts this week!). And a little while later, dinner was served.
A simple meal of grilled, marinated chicken tenders, long grain brown rice, and some green & yellow beans + carrots…along with a glass of merlot that was sipped on while we cooked.
I’m not usually a red wine drinker, but we have a bottle leftover from the party Saturday and I figured I’d attempt to make a dent in it. It’s quite tasty!
Alright, that’s all I’ve got for ya today, my friends. Forgive me if this post is sounding horribly written; I did it while doing about 300 other things and was too lazy to go back and re-read it.
Happy almost Fridayyyyy!!
