Good morning everyone! Hope your Tuesday is off to a great start! Having a day off yesterday made getting up early this morning so much easier…it’s amazing what a rest day does for your body and I’m already loving this new routine 🙂
But before I get into today, let me start off by showing you all yesterday’s eats. And I want to preface this by saying, am I weird for only liking warm foods? I’m not talking about foods that are supposed to be cold, such as yogurt, milk and fruit…but in terms of all other foods, I much prefer them to be warm over cold. For example, I prefer to eat my salads and sandwiches warm, as opposed to cold…catch my drift 😉 And yesterday, that’s exactly what I had for lunch and dinner.
Lunch: A warm salad was made with butter lettuce, one large carrot and one red bell pepper sauteed in the pan with some spray butter and seasoned salt, to which I added 1 small avocado, 1/3 cup garbanzo beans, a handful of croutons, and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette. It was a perfectly warm and delish hearty salad, just the way I like it 😉
Dinner: I continued my warm theme by making a grilled turkey sandwich on an Orowheat Sandwich Thin, with one Laughing Cow Swiss Cheese wedge, and a slice of onion. On the side I had a grilled carrot and a couple slices of zucchini, to which I dipped in hummus. Beforehand I also snacked on some bagel chips and hummus.
And the hubby’s grilling masterpiece…
And I ended my dinner with a lil sweat treat of a handful of prunes dipped in peanut butter…I know sounds strange, but if the hubby likes it I guarantee you will too 🙂
Workout: As I mentioned earlier, this morning I was more than ready to get my workout in, so I bounded out of bed, downed some coffee, and got my booty to the 6am spin class with my workout buddy in tow 😉 Our spin instructor this morning played awesome music. A mix of dance, hip hop, and none other than some ACDC Thunderstruck and Def Leppard Pour Some Sugar on Me. It.was.awesome. I didn’t realize how great it is to workout to that kind of music and before I knew it my head was boppin’ to the beat and gettin’ in the groove. Made me want to put up one of these too…
