I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I love the weekend… especially a 3 day weekend. Ah, it feels so good knowing I can enjoy tomorrow morning at home instead of getting up and going to work.
This morning looked like this:
Guys, I am so officially stuck on the dark chocolate chips I recently bought. Like seriously, it’s official. I will always have these around at home. Such a great little treat that isn’t too sweet- a little goes a long way and I’m so happy I discovered these. Don’t you just love when that happens? You find something you really love that’s also good for you? I love that. I keep them sealed in a zip-loc bag in the fridge and grab a few whenever I need them. I think I will be using them daily in my oatmeal, I love the taste so much. Ok I think you guys got the point
Today’s oatmeal didn’t contain the banana half I usually put in because we didn’t have any, so I drizzled a little honey on top and put some peanut butter on the side of the bowl so I could scoop a little with each bite. Perfection.
Yesterday was a really nice day. After writing you guys in the morning, I went straight to the gym. It was soooooo crowded and I was lucky to get a treadmill within 10 minutes of getting there. Ever machine was taken. I must say, I love being at the gym when it’s empty rather than when it’s super crowded. Nevertheless, I got my workout in and I was happy
I jogged/walked/ran 2 miles on the treadmill and then I did some step ups with a ten-pound weight in each hand. Um, this is not easy. You definitely feel the burn. I’m going to stack it up higher next time. The higher you go, the more it hurts.
Hurts so good, that is
At this point it was really hard to do much of anything because people were everywhere and I bumped into a family friend who I haven’t seen in a while, so we talked for about 15 minutes. I hate when that happens, but I loved seeing her so it’s okay
I headed home, took a shower and made this yummy egg, spinach, cheese and turkey sandwich on low-carb wheat bread:
Um, can you say YUM? So good. I used one whole egg and two additional egg whites. I let the spinach wilt in the pan, cracked the eggs on top, added a dash of salt and pepper and placed them on top of the cheese and turkey on the bread. Fast, easy, healthy and filling.
After that I was off to start my day. I decided I wanted to do something nice for myself and went to get my nails done. It’s been so long and I can’t stand not having my nails looking nice. Crazy how something so small can make you feel so good. Having my nails done makes me feel pretty and put together, even if I’m in sweats lol
Finally. Now time to let them grow. I got gel so hopefully it stays on long and gives me motivation to keep them growing.
On my way home I caught such a beautiful sunset, I had to take pictures.
So pretty, right? I love me a pretty sky. Sunsets and sunrises are my favorite and I’m always happy to be out catching one. <3
I hope you guys are having a great weekend and trying to fit in some workouts and healthy eats. Remember, it’s up to you what you eat and what you do for yourself. So please do what makes you happy both in the now and in the long-run, because you deserve to be happy
