I loved not having to be the first one up today. Chase had to get to Bellevue for his first day of work! Mwhaha.
I felt like doing something a little different with my “strength day”. I didn’t feel like going to the gym so I rolled out my yoga mat (Ophie freaking loves this thing so it’s generally stuffed in my closet) and tried out the Daily Ab Workout app I have on my Android.
I did 10 minutes straight of simple abs workouts and boy was I feeling it! Sadly, I realized I didn’t only feel it in my abs but in my neck. >.< I had a very hard time adjusting myself so I didn’t use my neck so much! I must work on that. 10 minutes is pretty measly but it’s all I felt like today. Oh well, a little is better than none!
Warmed up and hungry I poured myself a cup of Kashi Golean Crunch and topped it with ground flax, craisins, and skim milk. I’d had a mighty craving for cranberries since watching them on How It’s Made last night! Mmm mm.
Today was a gorgeous day so being inside a doctor’s office for over 5 hours was a little rough. My co-worker and I kept staring longingly out the door which we at least got to leave propped open. One awesome perk about today (other than the weather!) was getting a free tall iced latte with caramel drizzle when I walked in the office door. Coffee on the house courtesy of the doctor. Yes I can be bought. ~.^
At about 1pm I couldn’t put off lunch any longer so I dug into my lunch pail! The rest of last night’s not so great sandwich, crisp fresh romaine lettuce, and 1/4 of a cantaloupe. Even with the dense oily sandwich the fresh produce made this lunch feel light and spring-y!
After 4pm I was on the bus headed home when I couldn’t get the thought of a nice walk in the sun out of my head. Instead of getting off at my stop I stayed on and took the bus all the way to my other job, Safeway, so I could grab Chase a treat.
I then walked the 1.7 miles back home in the sun. ^_^ I love how the cherry blossoms go from pink to white! I’m also very excited that with all this blooming going on I have not noticed any signs of my seasonal allergies. My fingers are crossed that I left them in Montana!
When I walked in the door I was very much in need of a pick me up. I didn’t really think about how PB M&M’s count as having nuts in them…whoops. >.< Otherwise, I did pretty good for a no nut day!
Chase walked in the door around 5:30pm from his first day of work. Like I thought, he’s going to have to get used to the boringness of reception life. He said he felt like he just sat around all day. Yep! That’s what we do!
The “treat” I nabbed him at Safeway was another loaf of artisan garlic bread! To be honest, I really wanted some to help me finish off my roasted vegetable minestrone. I’ve probably still got two servings left.
It was perfect for dinner though. Big bowl of soup topped with shaved cheese, three pieces of garlic bread (so freaking good and hearty), and a glass of shiraz.
We did go on a small walk to enjoy the spring evening but otherwise our night was pretty lazy.
While we watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer (almost done with season 4!) I had some dessert. Half cup Costco Greek yogurt topped with 1/4 cup Kashi Golean Crunch and fresh strawberries. To be honest I was really craving some DQ or frozen yogurt but this did the trick. ~.^
Do you have any strength workout you follow?
