All day I kept thinking that it was Thursday, when it was actually only Wednesday. This has been quite a busy and long week…I need some R & R! Besides being a little stressed, I had quite the productive day. Breakfast was coffee, dark, sweet cherries (love these!), 1 cup low fat plain yogurt, and 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch.
I love finishing off a container of yogurt – so fun to use the big tub as a bowl :-)
I managed to fit in a quickie gym visit at lunch – 30 minutes of intervals on the elliptical (I alternated 1 minute fast with a few minutes recovery), foam rolling, and 3 x 10 lunges. Short and sweet!
Lunch was the usual salad – eaten at my desk because of back-to-back conference calls.
romaine, carrots, mushrooms, onions
spoonfuls of baked beans and pinto bean salad
spoonful of artichoke and olive salad
spoonful of sun dried tomato-pasta salad
piece of pesto cauliflower
whole grain croutons
Tbs balsamic vinaigrette
Yum! There were lots of varied flavors, textures, and colors in this lunch. It kept my taste buds guessing :-)
I had a wicked headache all afternoon, so I took to advils along with a skim cappuccino and some trail mix. It helped a little bit.
After work, Alma and I had an appointment with a broker. Why are brokers always so sketchy?? Anyway, I knew it was going to be a long night so I grabbed another handful of trail mix from a 25 cent machine. This was actually really great trail mix! I might try to re-create the combo of peanuts, cashews, m&ms, and raisins at home.
We braved the rain to look at an apartment uptown- it was decent, but we’re still searching for the right place.
When I got home I made myself a little pomegranate juice cocktail – 1/2 cup POM Wonderful juice + 1 cup lime seltzer. Mmm, antioxidants!
Dinner was another pita pizza – whole wheat flatbread topped with fresh mozzarella, feta cheese, zucchini, green pepper, and basil. Next time I might put marinara sauce on this. It was tasty, but it needed a little somethin’ extra. It was super filling though – I love cheese and veggies!
For dessert Nate and I finished off the last of the peach cardamom pie, served with vanilla ice cream, of course!
Question of the day: What is your best tip for getting everything done/staying organized??
