Well, I’ve pretty much only eaten 2 meal at home since Friday. One being a green protein smoothie.
The other being a take on Brittany’s lightened up lemon garlic chickpea pasta. I used rice noodles (tried those out for the first time and I like them!) for the pasta part and subbed broccoli and brussels for the spinach. It was super easy, healthy, and delicious. You can’t go wrong with those 3 qualities!
I was barely home the rest of the weekend.
Friday started out with a leg workout inspired by Harley Pasternak. I did the following 3 exercises circuit style and repeated 4x.
- squat while holding weighted plate in front of chest
- walking lunges
- jump squats
I then did a few sets up mountain climbers, bridge butt lifts, and planks. I finished up with weighted calf raises.
I worked late on Friday night and expected to not have to go into work again until Saturday afternoon, but I got called in to open because the morning person didn’t show up. I was already at the gym and had barely began my workout (thank god) so I rushed home, didn’t shower, got ready, and inhaled a smoothie. I didn’t eat again until family meal which is served in between lunch and dinner shifts, which was not healthy whatsoever. After that, I didn’t eat again until 11pm, when I split pizza and a cheese plate with my manager after I got cut from being there all day. I never enjoyed a cheese plate so much in my life.
Sunday was spent eating (unhealthy) all day again. I went to the restaurant with Joe for a while because he had to work for a bit. We split a melt in your mouth rare burger and strawberry mascarpone french toast. Oh, and I had more than a few drinks including mimosas and bloody marys. After that, we went to visit our friend’s and their 2 kids. I’ve had their Christmas presents in my car for months! That’s how long it took us to get together. The guys are both super busy. Anyway, we ordered pizza, wings, and sandwiches there and enjoyed some wine and champagne followed by cupcakes!
Today, I woke up and decided it was time to eat something nutritious. Having saved a jar of Barney Butter for oats in a jar, I decided this was the perfect time to use it. There was just a bit of almond butter left on the bottom which made for a perfect oat jar.
The oat mixture was made with almond milk, banana, vanilla, cinnamon, chia seeds, and agave nectar. I topped it with coconut butter, coconut flakes, granola, and peanut butter.
I’m so glad I saved the mini jar, it was the perfect size!
Workout = not happening today. I wanted to get a bunch of stuff done and we had already slept in. Here’s the plan:
change the sheets do a few loads of laundry tidy up the house
- study x2
blog and clear my google reader from Friday (eek!) errand at the mall(we won’t call it shopping) bank
Right now I’m at Starbucks blogging and studying with an iced venti shaken green tea lemonade.
Do we think I need to get my nails done? ha
The restaurant is getting some renovations done today so I am waiting for Joe to finish up with the construction guys so we can go grab some sushi.
I like having Monday’s off work. The non-corporate world isn’t so bad!
