Lettuce-Less Salad

Hi! Happy end of the work day on Thursday! I am getting so, SO excited for leaving tomorrow for the Healthy Living Summit! Are you going? If not, is there anything specific you want me to try to find out while I’m there? I promise to take lots and lots of pictures, but won’t blog until Sunday evening when I’m back.

But first, a quickie lunch/snack post. Today’s lunch was SO delicious, and so easy to throw together too. I started with a monster salad, that had no lettuce! I actually love having salads like this occassionally with no greens for a base because every bite of the salad is good stuff. i always think of lettuce as filler, but maybe that’s just me.

This salad had:

  • 1/2 cup chickpeas (1 pt)
  • 1 whole cucumber (from my farm share) (0 pts)
  • 1 box of grape tomatoes (also from the CSA) (0 pts)
  • 1/2 small avocado (2 pts)
  • 2 tbsp lemon hummus (1 pt)

I also had a slice of whole wheat toast on the side (1 pt) to get some carbs!

The tomatoes and cucumber were the highlights of the salad. They taste so fresh and delicious straight from the farm. I honestly sometimes forget how good fresh veggies can be! I ended up smearing some of the hummus and mashed avocado on the bread as I got towards the bottom of the salad. Lettuce-less salads are always great because everything is a topping basically, and I love me some toppings!

Afternoon snack was a plain siggi’s yogurt (2 pts) with some fiber one (0 pts).

The Siggi’s is a little tart for me, so I added a packet of Truvia and then it was perfect. Each jar of plain yogurt has 17 grams of protein, plus 16 grams of fiber from the Fiber 1! Very filling and satisfying snack, which is low in points, too.

I’m about to check out from work to get some last minute shopping done for tomorrow’s trip. Be back in the morning!

What’s your favorite salad combo lately?

Last Night in DC

Hiya! Happy Tuesday (!?) night. I am running around like a crazy lady trying to get my life in order/ready for a business trip tomorrow. I didn’t get a work out in today because I had too much packing and random other things to do before my trip tomorrow morning, but my eating and water consumption has been very on track. Plus, I get to the hotel tomorrow and am by myself until Friday, when my other coworkers arrive, so I plan to try to get a workout in both tomorrow and Thursday.

Afternoon snack today was watermelon chunks (1 pt) leftover from the party yesterday.

I loove watermelon – it completely reminds me of summer and I love that its so juicy and messy. Not the cutest fruit to eat at your desk but as long as no one’s looking, it’s fine. 🙂 I also had 3 Wasa Crackers when I got home (1 pt)

I just ate them plain because I was hungry before dinner was ready, and 3 of these is only 1 pt. They are crunchy but a little on the bland side – but I like them.

Wil made us dinner for my last night – Lemongrass Bok choy soup. It was sooo good and so healthy! First, he chopped up some lemongrass. Have you seen lemongrass before?

I hadn’t! We actually got it a few weeks ago at the Asian Market, but as long as you peel the outside parts of, it has a long shelf life. He put it into a mix of water and veggie broth and cooked it for 20 minutes or so.

While we had a glass of wine on the balcony.

I know I said cutting out unnecessary drinks is one of my goals for the month – but tonight was necessary – its my last night with him until Monday! 🙂 I ended up having 2 glasses of wine, one before and one with dinner (total 4 points). It was actually quite good – Garganegna, a leftover bottle from the party yesterday.

Once the lemongrass had infused in the liquid for 20 minutes or so, he strained it out of the water/broth, and added in chopped bok choy, a fresh ear of corn, 1 package of Nasoya pre-cubed tofu, and 2 servings of rice noodles. It made an awesome, super flavorful soup that was so delicious.

The lemongrass really flavored the broth, but we decided it probably would have been better to leave it a bit longer to let out even more flavor. The entire recipe had 14 points, so half of it (what’s pictured x2) was 7 points. Very worth it and something I will definitely make again – though next time I would probably add even more veggies to bulk it up a bit.

So overall today’s eating was really good, though it does feel a bit weird to be counting points! My daily target is 24, and the break down is like this:

Breakfast – Oats w/Vitatop – 5

Lunch – Huge Salad + Grapes 5

Afternoon Snacks – Watermelon + Wasa Crackers – 2

Wine – 2 Glasses – 4

Dinner – Lemongrass Bok Choy Soup – 7

I still have one left so I’ll probably have a snack in a little bit. I still have a bunch of random things to do before tomorrow – finish packing toiletries and other random things I need (phone charger, camera charger…) so I have to get back to it!

What are your best tips for staying on track during business travel?

Easy Creamy Tomato Soup

Hey! How has your Wednesday been? Mine has actually been really good! The weather held up for most of the day, so I got to run the errands I put off yesterday and now have another pair of work pants that fit! Woohoo. I had an awesome snack in the afternoon around 4:30.

A plain Chobani with a packet of Truvia, a crushed Weetabix biscuit, and 1 tbsp coconut flakes. Delicious. As soon as 5pm rolled around, it started sprinkling outside, but it was still pretty warm, so I came home and decided to go for a run. It actually felt GREAT. There were parts of the run that were tough (miles 1-2, and 4.5-5.5) but overall it was much better than Saturday, and the light rain actually kept me cool. I also remember my ipod shuffle this time, which was a lifesaver. 🙂

Stats:

Distance: 6.00 miles

Duration: 58:35

Avg Pace: 9:46 min/mile

Avg Speed: 6.1 mph

Calories Burned: 701

I’m glad to be back to running where it actually feels good! 🙂

After my run, I made an easy, delicious Creamy Tomato Soup that you have to try! This recipe is courtesy of my sister Wendy, with a few tweaks by me. This is all you need for the soup:

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp oil of choice (I used olive)
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (I used organic fire roasted)
  • 1 container plain Chobani (You can substitute half and half)

Directions:

  1. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pot over medium heat
  2. Add chopped onion and cook for 5 minutes until onion is soft, not browned
  3. Add can of tomatoes, juice and all, and stir in with onion
  4. Continue to cook for 5 minutes
  5. Mix with a hand blender, or a regular blender (but be careful not to close the lid fully since the soup will be hot!) to desired consistency. I left mine a little chunky because I like the soup that way.
  6. Mix in Chobani or desired amount of 1/2 and 1/2 and keep over the flame until heated through
  7. Garnish soup however you like. I used shredded cheddar.

This recipe makes 2 good sized bowls of soup (with 2 WW points each if you use the same ingredients I did) and is creamy, chunky, and delicious!

I had the soup with a toasted everything bagel thin with an over easy egg and more cheddar.

Such an easy and delicious dinner! I looove cream of tomato soup and this version is delicious and healthy too!

Dessert was 1/2 a mango, chopped up.

Off to catch up on the Biggest Loser and take it easy! Goodnight!

Amberjack

Hi! My boyfriend had a surprise night off, so I got to have a gourmet meal at home for dinner! I’m going to make this pretty quick so we can watch a movie and relax and enjoy the night together. 🙂

I had my last juicy pear for “dessert” after lunch

And my afternoon snack was a Siggi’s Pomegranate & Passionfruit with a crushed Weetabix biscuit and some mandarins.

I like this flavor a lot too – – I think I was expecting it to be a bit sweeter the first time I tried it, but since I knew what I was going into this time, I really appreciated the light sweetness and flavor of the yogurt. Crushed weetabix biscuits are one of my favorite toppings because they add such a nice crunch but are really low cal (much lower than granola!). My sister commented how much I eat mandarins (thanks Wendy ;)) but I bought a big bag of them at Trader Joe’s and its taking me a long time to get through the bag. I only have 3 left though, so bear with me! 🙂

Once I got home, I was thinking about working out but it is wet and cold out and what I really wanted to go for a run or a bike ride, and then while I was trying to figure out what to do, if anything, my boyfriend came home really early so I decided to just chill out with him since its rare that we get a week night together. He had brought home some Amberjack, which is a fish from North Carolina that I’d never even heard of. It’s a mildly sweet white fish with a firm flake, sort of similar to grouper in texture.

We munched on some edamame while cooking (slash mostly watching for me).

And then this was my plate:

Seared amberjack, served over a bed of quinoa with sweet corn and spinach, with a sour cherry sauce. It is times like this where I especially appreciate having a chef for a boyfriend… And yes, it was as delicious as it looks/sounds. 🙂 Night!

Biking for Beginners

A few people have been asking me about the bike I bought, how much it was, what I had to buy to go with it, whether I like it, etc etc. so I figured I’d take this opportunity to tell you a bit about my bike!

I need to take some more pictures, which I will post soon, but I bought a Diamondback hybrid. A hybrid is a cross between a mountain and a road bike, and in my opinion is the best of both worlds (unless you want to race – then you should get a road bike!) The tires themselves are much thicker than road tires, but they are still pretty narrow so I can go relatively fast in it. Because I ride on trails that are not just pavement but have dirt, bridges, roots, etc, the tires are sturdy enough to go on all sorts of terrains, but isnt as slow as a mountain bike.

My bike was used and cost $200 – it had new tires, new handlebars, and was fully tuned and ready to ride. If you’re in the DC area, I highly recommend going to the market where I bought mine (Craig’s List ad here) because they have about 40-50 bikes at any time and the guys are very knowledgeable and helpful. They let you ride the bike around and test out different bikes so you can get a feel for what you like best, and they guarantee the bike for 90 days. If anything happens to it, you have any questions, it just doesn’t feel right (or anything other scenario you can dream up!) you can bring it back to them and they will fix it, tune it, or let you pick a new bike.

Here’s a breakdown of some bike equipment you need/might want when you purchase a bike:

  1. Helmet – This goes without saying! You must, must, must MUST wear a helmet! It’s so dangerous and honestly not worth it not to!  One thing I recently learned is that helmets are only good for one hard fall – so if you have a tumble on your bike (which you inevitably will) replace your helmet. Even if it stays intact and looks OK from the outside, they are only designed for impact once, and much better to be safe than sorry!
  2. Padded Bike Shorts – A must in my opinion! I got mine off Amazon.com and they were under $30 and make a world of difference when riding.
  3. A comfy seat – If your bike doesn’t come with a comfortable seat, I highly recommend checking out amazon.com, a bike shop, or Target (where I bought mine for $20!) to get a new one. It makes a world of a difference.
  4. Air pump – This is a must that you have to buy along with your bike or very soon after. You’ll need to put air into your tires after every ride or two, so you need an air pump!
  5. Bike Lock – This is essential if you plan to leave your bike unattended at any time – – to go to the bathroom or into a store if you bike somewhere, if you want to switch from biking to running, to store your bike on the street or on a bike rack. You want to get a U-lock if you can, not a cable lock because those can be easily cut if someone is trying to steal your bike.
  6. Sunglasses or sports glasses – another essential which I didn’t realize until several rides in. There’s a lot of stuff and bugs flying around in the air, and since you’re going so much faster than running, it hits your face/eyes with much more speed! What a huge difference wearing sunglasses makes with keeping your eyes clear of gnats and other nasty things along the way! 🙂
  7. Bicycle gloves – These are optional, but next on my list to buy (don’t have them yet). Especially if you go on long rides, they help with your grip on the handles, they protect your hands/skin from the rub of the handlebars, and they absorb some of the shock when you hit bumps along the road.

I think that’s it! I am SO glad I bought my bike – definitely one of the best decisions I’ve made. It’s such a nice break from running, and its non impact. Also, sometimes when I speed by runners, I am sooooo happy to be on a bike going so much faster than I can run! I’ll always love running, but it’s definitely a nice supplement to it. Any other tips for beginners about biking? Especially from more experienced people because I’m such a novice! Or additional questions for people thinking about getting into it?

Now, onto my eats for the day! My afternoon snack was a T&C Sandwich with grapes.

T&C = Tempeh and Crofters Asia. I had 1/4 of a block (1/2 a serving) of raw tempeh sliced on the sandwich and put THE LAST ( 🙁 )of my Crofter’s Asia on both sides of the bread.

It was SO good! It doesn’t taste like much, just adds a nice texture to the sandwich, and definitely adds a LOT of staying power. 1/2 a serving has 11 grams of protein!! And grapes will always have a place close to my heart… love them!

After work I went out for a few drinks because my friend Jess finished LAW SCHOOL TODAY!!!!! Congrats Jess!! I am so happy for her, but it’s definitely making me think twice about what I’m doing/start thinking about “the next step”.. I can’t BELIEVE my friends are already graduating from law/grad school.. my how time flies! I had 3 vodka sodas and then called it quits. I was glad I had that substantial sandwich before going because I didn’t get too tispy and was able to stop after the 3 easily. After I left the bar, I was super hungry, so I decided to (against my own rules) stop at Chipotle for some dinner before heading home. I hadn’t been to Chipotle in AGES and when I walked by, it was calling my name, so I went with it.

I ordered the vegetarian burrito bowl:

I asked them to put lettuce at the bottom of the bowl, and then had them pile on:

  • black beans
  • fajita veggies
  • cilantro rice
  • pico de gallo
  • corn salsa
  • guacamole

It was soooooo good. Their corn salsa tastes SO good and everything felt so fresh even though it was from a chain… I know I said I wouldn’t eat out BUT I only spent $7 and I didn’t leave the bar until 8:30 and needed to eat before it got too late! But I admit I broke my own rule… and I’m not thrilled about it. No more eating out this week at all… hold me to it!!

Nurse Jackie is coming on soon! I’m gonna curl up on the coach and watch some TV. Have a good night!!

“Light” Meal

Hiya! Tonight got away from me so I’m going to make this quick! This whole week FLEW by and I’m so happy its the weekend already. We had another office outing to Yogen Fruz today and I went back to my old standby, Green Tea frozen yogurt.

This has dark chocolate shavings and mochi (japanese rice cake) on top. Green tea ice cream has always been one of my favorite flavors, and this frozen yogurt tastes just as good as the real ice cream! It’s so creamy and packed with flavor. If you’ve never tried Mochi, it’s kind of like gummy bear texture but not quite as chewy, and much less flavor. I love them for the texture and its one of my favorite toppings for fro yo. Yum.

I was planning on going to Bikram after work, but I ended up getting caught up doing something until after 5, and by the time I finished it was too late to make it to the 6pm class. I decided to just come home instead, and once I was on the metro my eyes started getting so heavy and it hit me just how tired I was. I crashed immediately when I got home and slept for over an hour. It felt SO good. I rarely ever take naps because I usually wake up more tired than when I started, but today I didn’t really have a choice.. my eyes were closing on me! After I woke up I was really hungry, so I had a quick snack.

A toasted everything bagel thin with goat cheese from the farmers market… SO good! This was the first time this year I’ve tried this goat cheese and it is delicious. The woman who sells it owns around 500 goats (!!!) and raises them and makes the cheese on her farm. It’s so fresh and has such an intense flavor.

After my snack, I went and met my boyfriend at LIA’S for a quick meal after he got off. A vendor had dropped off this bottle of rosé of sangiovese wine for him to sample, so I had 1 and 1/2 glasses of that during our meal.

It was crisp and tasty. I don’t generally go for rosé wines, but the price was right on this one and I really enjoyed it. I wasn’t that hungry since I had the bagel thin, so I decided to go pretty light for my meal. I started with a bowl of minestrone soup which was their soup of the day. It was supposed to come with a proscuitto crostini but I ordered it without because the rest of the soup was vegetarian.

They also served some house-made foccacia bread with olive oil.

I had one piece of the foccacia and it was AWESOME. It had grey sea salt on it and it was really crispy on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. The olive oil is also really flavorful so just a little but goes a long way. It went really well with the minestrone soup, which was full of beans, tomatoes, and a delicious broth. We also got citrus cured salmon crespelle.

Which are basically little house cured salmon tacos. I had one of the three of these, and they have mache on them in addition. The salmon is cured with lemon, orange, lime, citrus vodka, salt, and sugar. Really tasty.

I ordered an appetizer salad for my main course with beets, mache, orange, goat cheese.

The oranges are hiding under the mache on this salad. I looove goat cheese and forgot until just now that I already had some today! Beets, orange, and goat cheese really is a winning combo – the sweetness of the citrus works so well with the other flavors, and I ate the whole thing.

I also had one small piece of my boyfriend’s pizza, which had shrimp, tomato, fontina, bottarga, scallion, garlic butter.

This was amazinggg… by now you probably know just how much I love pizza, and having one piece of someone else’s is the perfect solution in my book. Then, we had to try one of the new desserts (because we wanted to) so we went with the honey and pine nut tart with evoo gelato, spiced tuile cookie, and caramel sauce.

Oh.my.god. This was seriously amazing, and I don’t even love pine nuts that much! It kind of tasted like pecan pie but was a little looser, and the evoo gelato on top was just melt-in-your mouth incredible, and brought the whole dessert together.

Kind of funny because I intended to eat light but looking back it doesn’t look so light now does it. That said, I left feeling really satisfied, not stuffed by any means. But I kind of take back describing the meal as light. Kind of.

Good night!!

Dangerous Dr. Krackers

Hiya! They were saying mid 70s and sunny today but it is looking pretty gloomy outside… pretty sad. That might not stop me from a later afternoon frozen yogurt stop though. 🙂

For lunch today I had a mix of leftovers and things I’m trying to use up since I’ll be going out of town tomorrow. I used almost all of the baby kale I had left to make a massaged kale salad with 2 tsp olive oil and some salt. With the salad I had ~ 1/2 cup rice noodles (leftover from Tuesday’s Lettuce Wraps) and the baked tempeh from last night. I also put a squirt of BBQ sauce on the plate for good measure.

On the side, I had the rest of the roasted parsnips and sweet potatoes, also left over from last night.

So simple, but so good. I love how roasted veggies get so sweet that you can just eat them plain and they have so much flavor.

But then came the best/worst thing to happen… Dr Krackers Pumpkin Seed Cheddar Snackers.

From the website, “We toast this cracker while it’s baking to coax the “wow” out of those delicious organic pumpkin seeds, and to get that the most out of that unique, extra-crispy toasted cheddar flavor. Absolutely delicious.” And delicious they were. Do you see how each kracker (I absolutely love writing cracker with a k) has cheese baked on top?

Oh.my.god. Seriously, these are like nothing I’ve ever tasted before. If you see these anywhere, BUY THEM. What made them the worst thing is I could not stop eating them. Luckily I ran around my office and made everyone who would talk to me try one, so I didn’t eat them ALL myself, but I made a pretty hefty dent and now the box is empty. These krackers (awesome) are really crunchy, which again takes a little getting used to during your first bite, but then they are like heaven. Everyone in my office agreed just in case you don’t believe me. 😉

Hope Friday is being good to you!

Poached Eggs with Avocado? Yes, Please!

Hey! This week is seriously flying by.. I feel like I say that every week but this time I really mean it! I’m going to make this pretty quick because, and I know I say this every night lately, I am TIRED and want to really make an effort to get to bed early. Check up on me tomorrow to hold me to it. 🙂

I did Bikram after work today and it was HARD. There weren’t too many people there even though this class is usually busy, but I’m guessing that’s because they were out celebrating Cinco de Mayo. For some reason today, I felt like I could barely breath! After the first few standing postures I had to sit down for a little bit – it was strange because I took yesterday off and it wasn’t humid at all today. I am going to take tomorrow off too and go for a nice long bikeride because I still haven’t tried my new seat even though its installed. I’ll go back to Bikram on Friday, which concludes my week pass, then I’m going to take a bit of time off from it because its expensive and I’ve really been neglecting biking, running, and weight training. Also, it is such a huge time commitment with the workout itself plus getting there early and showering after, so I’m looking forward to having a little more free time most evenings.

After my lunch, I ran out and got some gummy bears because I wanted them. Good reason, right? 🙂

Afternoon snacks included an apple

And a Chobani 2% Strawberry Banana

I am loving the 2% flavors recently. I think they taste great, are a little thicker than the 0%, and really stick with me longer.

When I got home, I was REALLY hungry, so I wanted to make something fast. I quickly decided on eggs, my favorite quick meal.

This is two poached eggs, served over 1/2 a medium sized avocado, with two slices of toasted whole wheat potato bread. Poaching can seem intimidating – i know it did for me before I learned the right way, but its really so quick, easy, and its great that you don’t have to add any butter or oil to cook them in.  Jenna did a post on it here, but my method is a little less precise. I usually do it in a pan, as long as its deep enough for the water to cover the eggs, and the three secrets to poaching perfect eggs are:

1.) Add vinegar to the poaching water

2.) Bring the water to a boil and then down to a simmer before putting the eggs in

3.) Crack the eggs in a dish and then pour into the water, don’t crack them directly into the water

I leave it for about 3-4 minutes and don’t cover it, and then use a slotted spoon to remove them from the pan. They turned out exactly how I like them, with the yolk oozing all over once I broke it.

Mmmm. This was exactly what I wanted and was in my belly 15 minutes after I came up with the idea. 🙂

Night!

Lettuce Wraps

Hey! Today was one of the busiest days at work that I’ve had in a loooong time. I decided against taking a picture of my lunch because it was a business lunch. Not gonna lie though, it felt a little weird not to take a picture. When I first started the blog, I felt weird taking pictures and kept forgetting, and now it feels like somethings missing if I don’t! We ended up going to Old Ebbitt Grill and there were 5 of us total. We got an order of fried calamari to share to start and I had one piece of sourdough bread with real butter. So good! For my main course, I ordered the Salmon Nicoise Salad (no dressing). It was a piece of seared salmon on top of a bed of greens with kalamata olives, boiled potatoes, a hard boiled egg, green beens, chopped tomatoes, and red onions. So good, and I ate the entire thing.

For an afternoon snack, a bunch of coworkers and I headed over to Yogen Fruz. Today I changed it up and got the nonfat plain mixed with frozen cherries. I had it topped with dark chocolate shavings…

It was sooo good. I love how this place will stir in whatever frozen fruit or flavor you want to make the yogurt actually change flavors. Mmmm.

The greatest part of being so busy at work is that the days have been FLYING by. When 5 o’clock came I could honestly barely believe it. Once I stepped outside, it was still SO nice out. I think it was still around 80 degrees and sunny, but not humid at all. That’s rare for DC! I decided to take the night off completely from working out just to give my body a break. Three days of Bikram in a row plus an 8 mile bike ride thrown in there called for a day off.

My boyfriend had the night off too, so we ran to heaven Whole Foods to pick up a few things and got ingredients for Lettuce Wraps! The perfect warm weather dinner in my opinion. 🙂

I marinated some tofu right in the container with fish sauce, soy sauce, and sweet chili sauce for about 30  minutes while I put the rest of the groceries away and unloaded the dishwasher.

I also boiled the rice noodles, which only took 2 minutes and then ran them under cold water to get them cold. The boyfriend was in charge of everything else, including cooking the tofu in the wok after it had marinated. Here was the spread:

The tofu, chicken thighs in a similar marinade (for him), mango, rice noodles, bean sprouts, pickled kale and red onions (!!!), sliced red onions and cilantro, and organic green leaf lettuce. I put together 4 lettuce wraps and piled them high with bean sprouts, rice noodles, pickled onions, mango, and the marinated tofu.

They were sooooo good, but definitely a little messy.

Everything was so fresh and the textures, flavors, and colors worked perfectly together. The tofu was so flavorful from sitting in the marinade for longer than I usually let it – I have to work on my patience and give the tofu time to soak up the marinade more often! I love lettuce wraps and these were perfect.

I’m off to watch a movie and relax – be back tomorrow!

Community Book Room

Whew what a day! I am feeling so exhausted I can barely keep my eyes open – it’s going to be an early night! I don’t even know if I’ll make it through Nurse Jackie… one of my favorite shows right now, so that says something!

One of the reasons I’m so tired is because I stayed up too late last night because I’ve was reading this book. There is a community book room in my apartment complex and it is such an awesome thing to have. Basically, its a room on the lobby level full of books. You can go in there any time you’re looking for a new read and take it with you. I always put a lot of good books in there when I’m done reading, and sometimes find some really great books I never would have discovered otherwise. The book I’m currently reading was in there and it says on the front, “Highly recommended for fans of authors like Jodi Picoult and Jacequelyn Michard.” It had me right there – Jodi Picoult is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read almost all of her novels and loved each one. This book is a little sad but its the kind you read where you cannot put it down. I’ve been reading it on the metro to/from work and I’ve definitely missed my stop more than once! 🙂

My afternoon snack today was a Pineapple Chobani with the last of the Fiber One in my desk.

I had it around 4pm and it held me over really well. I never would have tried the 2% yogurt had Chobani not sent me the samples, and I’m so glad I did. It has the same number of WW Points as the nonfat kinds (3 pts) but keeps me full for a lot longer.

After work, I took the 6pm Bikram tonight. It was hard! It’s day 3 in a row for me and since it was so humid outside, the class itself was really hot and sweaty, even more than normal. Not to mention, 6pm is the time of choice for a lot of people who go after work, so it was packed. People were practically on top of each other, and when you’re that sweaty, the last thing you want is someone else who’s equally sweaty touching you! I can definitely tell that I’m getting better at the postures and really enjoy it, but tomorrow I’m going to take the day off from it.

When I got home, I was starving and I opened my fridge and saw the leftover pizza from Saturday night. I heated it up for 45 seconds and devoured it.

Two sliced of wild mushroom pizza with 4 types of cheese… yum! It was delish. After my pizza, I was craving some fruit, so I had three mandarins.

And then as I sat down to write this I realized I wanted something else, so I had a huge banana.

I had to take a bite before I could snap a pic. 😉

I’m off to relax and hopefully get to bed early tonight.

Be back tomorrow!
