Thursday Spinning Class and Meal Planning

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!
