Hey, hey! Happy Friday friends!
It’s been a good day so far, but it definitely does NOT feel like Friday to me. It feels like Monday now that I’m back in the office after being out of the office for several days, and I have no plans to treat tonight like a normal Friday either! A low key night with my guy seems great to me, but the rest of the weekend will be a little more exciting:
- Yard work
- Wine tasting + dinner in Grapevine with friends (Can’t wait!!)
- Football Sunday with friends
- At least 2 workouts –> more like a goal!
- Finishing up housework
- Out to the movies
- Taking down the outside Christmas lights (Anthony is seriously slacking on that one.)
It’s going to be 63* and SUNNY all weekend, and I am looking forward to soaking it all in!
BREAKFAST: English Muffin + PB – 159 calories
My stomach was still really off this morning (I really think it was from eating so much cheese at lunch), and just thinking about the Greek yogurt I had packed for breakfast made me gag so I went with a simple & plain breakfast instead.
- Orowheat Whole wheat English muffin
- 1 T Natural PB (Laura Scudder is my new favorite – so drippy!)
- 1/2 t No sugar added preserves
LUNCH: Sweet Potato + Baked Beans & Sautéed Spinach – 239 calories
After a busy morning of playing catch-up work, I headed into the office kitchen to cook a quick lunch. Last night I baked a sweet potato, which I ended up not being able to eat, so it became the center of my midday meal. Topped with vegetarian baked beans – awesome combo – and sautéed spinach on the side.
I always plan my meals the night before, and I realized I had planned on only eating 1/2 of the sweet potato for lunch. So now 1/2 is wrapped up in the fridge waiting to be eaten with dinner!
- 1/2 Sweet potato, baked
- 1/2 C Vegetarian baked beans (I used Busch’s brand)
- Spinach sautéed in balsamic vinegar
Earlier this morning, my boss and I were talking about exercises to target different parts of the body and weight loss, and we got on the subject of a weird habit I use to have a couple of years ago. I drink a TON of water and coffee at work, so I go into the restroom a LOT. A couple of years ago, I started this thing where every time I went I would do 25 tricep dips or 25 squats, alternating between the 2 each time. It really does add up! I’ve decided I’m going to implement that again, and I’m going to track how many sets I do per day on top of my regular workouts! Any other bathroom-stall-friendly exercises you can think of?
Lunch is juuuuuust about over so I’m going to get back to it, but I have to leave you with this adorable picture my friend, Lindsey, found on Pinterest last night. Looks exactly like my boxers AND just like a position I would find them in!
**I updated the weigh-in page this morning!**
Have a great Friday!
