Crooked Nail

by Jillian on January 24, 2013 · 6 comments

Wow! Getting up at 4:45 is really starting to get to me. I’m tired by 6pm! Anyway, let’s recap last night’s dinner before I tell you about bootcamp this morning.

Last Night’s Dinner

It came together pretty quickly, which is exactly what I had planned. Fast and easy! I cooked 1/4 cup brown rice and sautéed a piece of gruyere chicken sausage that I had in the freezer. I added spinach, coconut milk, and nutritional yeast and voila.


I ate it out of a latte cup soup bowl that my mom got me for Christmas.


Delicious and nutritious, followed by another brownie. I’ve eaten a brownie every day this week, hence why I’ll never have a 6 pack (unless we’re talking about beer.)


Speaking of chocolate, I finally tried the last flavor of the new ThinkThin Divine bars. I thought that the combination of coconut and mint would be weird, but I actually liked it. It tasted more like mint with coconut texture inside. I’ll be picking more up at Whole Foods tomorrow, that’s for sure.



I literally had to pry myself out of bed this morning. It has been brutally cold all this week.


Once I got up and started moving, I was totally fine. I know that’s always the case, but when you’re laying in bed that early under the warm covers, it takes more than the thought of rock hard abs to get out of bed.


We walked into this. It was an all strength day. As usual, there were multiple stations. Today, each one had an upper body, lower body, and core movement. I tried to keep the weights light since we were going for 15-20 reps on most rotations.


However, I somehow ended up dead lifting 100 lbs. when we were told to do 20 reps. I didn’t realize the weights on it were each 25 lbs! Darn body pump weights! Either way, another winning workout.


There’s my motivation for getting out of bed next week! Riiiiight…


On my lunch break today, I got a manicure. Is it just me, or do you find that sometimes the manicurists tends to file nails crooked? Like, really? Does that look straight to you?


I made a very interesting dinner, but I’ll elaborate more on that tomorrow.


As much as I want to stay and play, I’m not a trooper like Gus. I sneak out when I’m tired.

I hope you gave Gus a taste of your dinner after his best efforts to stay awake!!

I don’t think I’ve ever had a manicure where I didn’t have at least one crooked nail. So weird!!

I’m bad about actually get manicures since they chip so much, I’d rather put that money towards a pedicure and then my nails are far enough away that I can’t notice any that are crooked. ;)

I haven’t gotten a manicure in forever, but I do remember noticing that sometimes! Maybe it’s the angle that they’re sitting at?

The thought of 5AM bootcamp actually makes me homicidal.

Ha. I read the first part of your Dinner wrong and thought the and voila said and vodka. I was going to say vodka in a rice dish sounds very odd. Glad you didn’t do that;) I feel you on those before 5 AM wakeup calls. Everyday this week I’ve managed to do it, I kind of can’t wait to sleep in this weekend!
