Good evening…late evening!
I woke up this morning and made a quick green fruity smoothie for breakfast before I rushed off to work at 7:30. In it was:
- about a cup vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 scoop Designer Whey french vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple and mango
- about 1 cup spinach
- 1/2 ripe banana
This isn’t an exact picture, but it looked similar to one I made the other day, pictured here:
For lunch I had some vegetarian (and vegan!) chili made by a coworker. In it was a buncha tomatoes, tomato paste, black beans, all different kinds of peppers and a little canned chipotle, garlic, butter, etc. I topped my serving with some housemade mild salsa, a serving of avocado and some mild shredded cheddar cheese. Stick under the broiler for a few minutes, and voila! Melted cheese 🙂
Sorry the picture isn’t that great, I took it in a hurry and shut of my flash so I wouldn’t look weird taking pics of my food in the middle of my lunch. On the side is a little sour cream and a few of our “crepe chips” made out of crepe batter and…yes, fried 😦
I got home around 5ish after hanging out at work for a bit when my shift was over, then headed straight to the gym with my bestie for a 45 minute session on the elliptical and LOVED it. I hate getting ready and going to the gym, but once I’m there it just feels like second nature.
After the gym we both got a small decaf soy latte from Sbucks, then ran a few errands before we completely caved and ordered a little bit of chinese: beef and broccoli along with the best chicken chow mein I’ve ever had. Ever. Again, a sloppy picture…but you get the drift…
Anyways, I’m sorry for the short posts lately, but I’m exhausted. I’m off to read a new book I’m starting: “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy. I’ve heard good things, have any of you read the book?
Tomorrow I’m getting up early for a gym session with my bestie again, followed by a much deserved breakfast downtown at one of our favorite breakfast places…on her (which, in my state of decreased income, may be the best part). I feel like buckwheat pancakes may be in my near future?
