Today has been a whirlwind of a day! And it started way too damn early..all for nothing. You see I planned to get my workout in early this morning only to find again that someone had locked the 24 hour gym door. –_- I was livid and even talked to the temp receptionist about it. She tried to prove me wrong that it wasn’t open 24 hours…I couldn’t believe it. I wanted to say “You’ve been working here…a few weeks right? Guess who lives here genius.” Anyway I just checked the door and it’s unbolted so at least I found the culprit and can workout tomorrow morning! (END RANT)
Breakfast of blueberry oats topped with Dark Chocolate PB and toasted hazelnuts. Homemade iced coffee. Deliciousness.
Next I did a 10 minute Daily Arm Workout App while I watched this giant slug move across our window. Gross right?
Before work started I grabbed a tall iced coffee with no sweetener and room so I could add in my own lemon creamer. I’m loving this Stevia!
Lunch at work consisted of asparagus and potato salad and blue cheese on top of tender spinach, a mini kind bar, a juicy nectarine, and a Chocolate Vanilla Chobani Champion. The salad was a bit too big but I ate all the rest.
When I got home from work I was determined to still get my workout in. I had my chat with the receptionist then did a sweaty 30 minute treadmill interval workout at 1% incline. I’m determined to get running back into my life.
After my workout I devoured a perfectly ripe banana (I like them hard and a little green) with some crunchy peanut butter. I’m so glad I ate this too because we didn’t have dinner plans until 7pm…
At the Dragon fish Asian Café in downtown Seattle!
We met my old lab partner and friend, Steph and her new boyfriend Sam! They are visiting from Missoula, MT and are the cutest couple. He’s a bee keeper(!) and she’s a Natural History major. <3 Can’t you see them keeping their bees together?
Of course Steph in all her sweetness brought me goodies all the way from MT! A GIANT bag of my favorite trail mix, Treasure Trove, from the Good Food Store and two raw honeys from Sam’s bees! I can’t wait to try them. (Trail Mix was snacked on on the road home tonight….>.>)
But back to dinner: we started with a round of cocktails! I went with the Mandarin Dragon Mojito: cruzan silver rum, fresh lime, thai basil, mint, orange. topped with soda. Mmm mmm. This is pretty much the only thing I liked about this restaurant.
We also shared togarashi spiced vegetable chips which were okay but a bit too spicy and greasy for me.
Plus a smorgasbord of sushi! I ate 4-5 avocado pieces
and 3 of these lemongrass crusted tofu. Very mediocre and over priced.
I definitely had room for dessert! We walked a few blocks and ended up at Gelatiamo. I got pistachio and “fruits of the forest” in a waffle cone. The fruit one was only so so but the pistachio one was holy amazing. So subtle and creamy. <3
It was a gorgeous and fun filled evening and I had such a lovely time catching up with Steph. I really miss having a good friend close enough to whisper with. Hopefully I’ll be seeing a little more of her for the few days she’s here.
Must jump in bed now. Goodnight!
