First off…. GOOOOO GIANTS!
This weekend was both extremely busy and fun! Friday night, I got home quite late after hostessing at the restaurant. I never understood until now how having a glass of wine and winding down after dealing with people all night is completely necessary. Saturday was similar, especially because I worked my first double. I got in at 10:30 AM, served, changed, and then hostessed until 11PM. A brick oven pizza and a cocktail was definitely necessary before heading home Saturday night. It’s fun to hang out and wind down with all the employees after hours, though, so I see why Joe ends up getting home so late on the weekends.
Last night, a large crowd of us went out for the super bowl. I ate just about every junk food you could possibly imagine (ie. pizza, nachos, burgers, fries, and wings) and loved every second of it. I was not about to “healthify” my super bowl eats. I enjoyed a few beers, and lots of food! After a nerve-racking 4th quarter, I was happy that my Giants won! Especially because I’m not a huge Tom Brady fan. It has nothing to do with football, but I have always held a grudge since he started dating Gisele while Bridget Moynahan was pregnant with his child. Is it just me?
Anyway, needless to say, this morning was a late start. Joe headed into work while I got started on my day. I really wanted to get to the gym since I had taken a few unplanned days off last week. After coffee and a piece of toast with peanut butter, I headed out to get in a quick workout.
I wanted to take it a little easy since my stomach was still suffering a bit from last night’s greasy food! I had a 30 minute Integrative Nutrition lecture to listen to, so I opted for a 3 mile tempo-ish run.
Afterwards, I did about 20 minutes of random ab exercises, stretching, and foam rolling.
Typical green smoothie made with dark cocoa powder, spinach, protein powder, almond milk, flax meal, stevia, ice, and a pinch of xanath to thicken. I opted for half of a grapefruit on the side for some carbs and sugar to refuel.
I always feel like I need leafy greens to sort of “detoxify” after a day of unhealthy eats.
Despite waking up later than I’d wanted, I got a lot accomplished today already!
- a load of laundry
- 1 hour of cPT studying
- 1 IIN lecture (during my run)
- cooked a batch of millet
- painted my nails
- ordered protein powder and shakes from Netrition
- emptied the dishwasher and cleaned up the pizza and wine from last night, yeah…..
I hope you all had fun on Super Bowl Sunday and didn’t have too hard of a time getting back into the groove this Monday morning! I’ll be heading in to work at 4:00.
