Hi there! I hope your Thursday is off to a great start. This morning I rolled out of bed
bright (cold and dark) and early for a spinning class. And boy, did it kick my butt. Or more specifically, the instructor kicked my butt. This is the second time I have gone to her class and she is fierce. The 45 minute spinning class feels a bit like a boot camp. She’s a tough cookie with a ‘no excuses’ attitude, and just when I thought we had survived the class and cooled down she made us end with 20 pushups. So obviously, I want to go back next week. 🙂
Last night I had a hair appointment after work and was starving afterward so I stopped at Jimmy John’s for a Turkey Tom with onions and hot peppers. It hit the spot. (And yes, that’s desperation at it’s finest… sitting on the floor in front of the tv pounding a sandwich. But it felt so right.)
I keep a small stash of mom’s Christmas cookies and biscotti in my freezer for emergencies… so I ended the evening with a piece of double chocolate biscotti. Heaven.
And now I am enjoying my favorite part of the morning: watching the news, eating breakfast, and updating this wonderful space on the internet. Breakfast this morning consisted of a fried egg, half of a grapefruit, and half of an English muffin with Chia Almond butter and jam:
I know, my pictures aren’t pretty… but I promise it was delicious.
Lunch is going to be a real surprise… another chicken salad!
Last night Kris asked me if I was ever going to eat anything else ever again…. I guess that might be a sign that it’s time to switch it up. So you will be happy to know that I used up the last of the ingredients today.
For a snack I have packed a sliced apple with some broccoli, celery and hummus for dipping.
Now to get to work and make some coffee (my second favorite part of the day). I hope your day is off to a good start!
