Wednesday Wonderings

Happy Wednesday!!!

Work yesterday dragged allllll day! It sucked!!!

image

I made myself a delicious beans, rice and cheese burriot with lettuce.

image

Water and coffee. The staples of my life.

image

My trainer kicked my butt last night!!!! I knocked out hard last night. Great nights sleep.

My food choices were mostly good lol. I ate a bag of chili cheese Fritos which didn’t sit well mid workout but thankfully i kept my cookies down….or my Fritos lol.

How was your Tuesday?

A day of planned meals

Happy Thursday!!!!

Though i am writing this Wednesday night. It’s 8:20pm and i am in bed getting ready to pass out. I have a 5:30am training session in the pool. Oh the things we do to train. I am only doing blue apron every 2-3 weeks now so it is time to start meal planning again. It was time anyways if i want to lose some weight and start gearing up my training for an epic race year…..well epic for me Hahahaha.

Here is my meal plan for tomorrow.

image

Protien bar before my pool workout. They are easy to digest and are light.

image

Hitting Starbucks after my workout because ill have plenty of time to kill between workout and work.

image

Morning snack, all cut up and ready to go.

image

Lunch: a leftover blue apron dinner that i froze. North African shrimp cous cous.

image

Afternoon snack: energy balls. Found the recipe on pintrest today. Though i made something a lot like it for the trail as well. So simple. Peanut butter, chocolate protein powder (vega for me), oats, honey, and mini chocolate chips (vegan for me) mix and enjoy!
I might have part of a naked juice blueberry protien smoothie if I’m still hungry.

image

Dinner will be what i have been gobbling up lately. Egg, cheese and veggie sandwich on a whole wheat english muffin. Though i picked up some salsa today so it will be extra yummy!

I usually leave the tv to fall alseep too. Generally a movie i have watched a millions before. Just for some background noise. Tonight choice is

image

Don’t judge lol.

I just bought this!

image

And am excited to watch it tomorrow night and compare it to the book!

Also while drifting off i am flipping through this:

Seeing of anything is nearby that i can do in  2016.

Do you plan your meals?
Do you want tv to go to sleep? Or listen to music? Or do you like silence?

Random Wednesday Wonderings

My cheap replacement for my morning Starbucks. I get 4 bottles for the price of a grande. Not as strong but it’s something to help the budget now and then.

image

Got this water bottle at the airport and it’s a quart. 2 of these a day and i am set! Yes i refill and reuse plastic water bottles for like a month.

image

I have been drinking more and more tea lately.

image

Leftover delicious lentil Bolognese for lunch!

image

Next years calendar for my desk at work!!! I am such a dork i love to go through and write the years stuff on a calendar. Holidays, birthdays, full moons, new moons, paydays, and races. New years eve at work should be really slow so I’ll do it then :mrgreen:

image

Artemis likes to surprise me every once and a while by eating one of my socks. And she always picks the good ones……

I got in a good workout today so that helped improve my day.

Took the dog for a walk. Did 40 min on the recombent bike and 40 minutes on the treadmill.

How was your Wednesday?

Weekend Catch-up

Being back home, and yes a part of me will always consider LB home, especially while the majority of my family is here, has been great. I wish i had more time to see everyone i wanted to see and that i was fully recovered from this cold so i wasn’t so exhausted but it’s still been an good weekend.

Mom and i walked to Starbucks Saturday morning for breakfast amd a workout.

image

  Saturday afternoon my friend took me to the movies amd we say ‘the 33’

image

It was sooooo good!!!!

Sunday morning mom and i met my sister, bother in law, niece and nephew for breakfast where i ate way too much but it was delicious! On the way there we saw this

image

I think this is the first time i have actually ever seen this in real life.

My my uncle and his wife and my other aunt met us for lunch and my grandma’s. And for dinner i had a terriyaki beef bowl from this whole in the wall place across the street that is freaking amazing!!!!  Once again i ate too much. This whole day i was boarding on being uncomfortably full, my family tends to congregate around food. I’m gonna have to start working my butt off and eating healthy again.

Ok now it’s sleep time, my eyes won’t stay open.

What did you do this weekend?

Where your food choices better than mine?

Blue Apron week 3 meal 2

image

image

I had never made anything tempura before. I’ve eaten and love tempura but have never made it.

And i was definitely skeptical about acorn squash tacos.

image

image

Yea, our counters are a little messy.

image

The prep work wasn’t too bad except for the squash which was a pain. Also i had way more onion and way more squash than i needed.

image

While cooking i enjoyed some pink lemonade emergen-c cause i have been feeling a little funky.

image

image

I’ve also never really fried anything so that was interesting. It was a lot easier than i thought. I may have to try some fried chicken soon.

image

The finished product……and the consensus is that these tacos are actually pretty freaking amazing!!!!

image

The other meditation cd i got. I want to do a meditation to find my spirit animal.

image

Also apperently this is how my name is spelled, except that on the drinks for roommates they girl put AR……hmmmm.

How was your weekend?

What was the best thing you did?
