I switched up my routine today and got up early, put on the workout clothes I had laid out the night before, had a quick snack of a White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Lunabar and got to the gym by 6:15 a.m. Usually I am an afternoon gym person, but because I had to work until 6:30 or so tonight, I decided to get my workout in first thing in the morning so I didn’t miss it.
It felt good to get there early and be finished with my workout by 7:15. I did miss having more time there, but I still managed to get in a half hour on the elliptical and a full circuit of weights. I actually felt better at work too. I think it really affected my mood and set the tone for the entire day. Maybe I should do this more often during the week and get to work a little later.
Then again, I sometimes do look forward to going home, changing and working out after a long day of sitting at work.
Anyway onto the eats.
Breakfast was a big bowl of stovetop oats with a ripe banana and tons of peanut butter. Love how the pb melts and gets all gooey!
Snack at work was a latte with skim milk and a pump of almond syrup. I was offered the pump for free and couldn’t pass it up. The almond flavor was superb!
Lunch was a ham and cheese sandwich on wheat, a Black Cherry Chobani yogurt, a tangelo and a Moser Roth toffee chocolate bar.
Throughout the afternoon, I snacked on whole almonds and milk chocolate chips off and on at my desk.
Dinner was pasta shells with mushrooms and green peppers that I cooked up on the stove.
My evening went by quickly because I got back from work later than normal. We have been going to bed earlier since we got back from vacation and now that it’s 9 p.m., my eyes are really tired and ready for the 9:30 bedtime I’ve been adhering to.
