Lovin’ my rest day

Even though I loved having a runner’s high yesterday, I’m loving my “rest day” from the gym. Sometimes it just feels good to come home, take my time making dinner and rest by reading and plopping my butt on the couch. I won’t lie though–I am really looking forward to yoga tomorrow night. It may mean that I switch my 25 minute run to Friday, but it’s way worth it because my body needs yoga badly this week.

I am so excited that tomorrow is my Friday! This week flew by! :)

Breakfast–cereal and coffee. Same old stuff you’ve seen on here for weeks!

Lunch was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, lots of carrots, red peppers and a peach chobani. I finally got some veggies in my lunch box and they tasted so good. I couldn’t believe I polished off all of those carrots. I think it was a total of three chopped up? Crazy, huh!

I ran to Aldi after work and stocked up on lots of produce so I could make a yummy dinner!

Oh and I got some string cheese, so I had to snack on that when I got home. Seeing string cheese in the fridge tonight made my husband so excited. Our cat Karma also loves it when we open string cheese wrappers. He’s crazy and will run up to smell the wrapper and hope we drop some cheese on the carpet.

When I meditated tonight, I had to add five minutes onto my 20 minute routine and breathe before my actual meditation session. 25 minutes twice a day sure adds up, but hopefully it will help me in the long run.

Dinner was a salad with grape tomatoes, sunflower seeds, tofu and a bit of mozzarella shredded cheese.

I marinated half of the tofu in Frank’s red hot sauce and some Penzey’s spices.

Beautiful and delicious salad!

Dessert was a Moser Roth english toffee milk chocolate bar from Aldi. Do you like to shop for produce at Aldi? I realize I have to watch what I buy there in terms of packaged foods (hello, high fructose corn syrup), but I love their prices on produce. I didn’t have luck with fruit tonight in terms of quality, but there were some good veggies to choose from.

Going to keep this post short and sweet! Night!
