Thanks to my twitter viewing husband who saw the tweet about it, I was able to find a cool program to attend at the library during my lunch break today. Hence the title of this post, I got a much needed change of scenery and it felt great!
So, the program I went to was an adult storytime in honor of women’s history month. I grabbed a turkey, avocado, tomato, and red onion panini from the cafe at the library and it hit the spot (I didn’t take a pic because I was talking to the storytelling librarian and I think she would have been confused if I whipped out my camera and took a pic of my sandwich). I also needed a change in my lunchtime food, since I tend to bring my lunch every day, sometimes that gets a little old.
Breakfast was really filling–stovetop oats with a whole banana, pb, and nutella.
I tried Weleda’s Lavender Relaxing Body Oil before my meditation session this afternoon. I think it relaxed me a little too much because I kept falling asleep! Anyway, Weleda sent me their Skin Food back in December and this time, I purchased the oil because I was so impressed with their natural products. I LOVE lavender, so this product is perfect as a moisturizer or as an oil to use before meditation or yoga.
Dinner was a pb and jelly sandwich on the only bread we had left–the ends of the loaf, which I usually find gross and give to the birds. I really shouldn’t do that as they weren’t that bad. I also had a Strawberry Banana Chobani yogurt.
Dessert was a mint chocolate ice cream sandwich (Aldi Fit and Active brand).
And I blogged before 6:15 tonight instead of around 8:30, so it’s time to log off, change into my yoga clothes and get to the gym for a relaxing yoga session with my favorite teacher.
Only one more day until the weekend! Woot woot!

It’s time for me to get back into my routine, which I find awfully boring to present to my readers compared to traveling. Truthfully though, I actually seem to enjoy reading people’s routines and seeing their daily meals rather than hearing about their travels. Maybe it’s because I love traveling and I get a bit jealous?
Back to showing you my meals and talking about my regular day, including the workouts I am incorporating into my routine after a vacation without them.
I started out my morning back to work with some Honey Nut cheerios and a bowl of blueberries. I desperately wanted to make stove top oats with a banana and pb, but with having to scrape my car off for 20 minutes and de-ice, that wasn’t happening.
Snack at work was a cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows and a trail mix bar.
Lunch was my leftovers from yesterday’s meal at The Cheesecake Factory and an apple. I also had a moser roth toffee chocolate bar for dessert.
I realized that before I left on our trip, I really was packing huge lunches at times. I think I am going to try cutting back a bit and watching my calories.
Dinner was a Strawberry Banana Chobani with a few cheerios on top and some of my naughty cheesecake.
My meal reflects this, but I was pressed for time because I stayed at work later and then had to get to my yoga class.
I had a piece of toast with peanut butter and a glass of chocolate milk when I got back from yoga.
Yoga tonight was excellent. I really love this teacher’s class because he always changes up the poses every week. I am always learning something new. My body needed yoga badly after our vacation! It felt so good to stretch.
Well folks, I need to start limiting my computer time and read a bit tonight since it’s already quite late.
