Yeah, last week I called the post WIAW #7, but then I realized I already had a number 7, so this makes 9! As always, thank you to Jenn @ Peas and Crayons for hosting! (www.peasandcrayons.com)
It’s already pretty late in the day, so let’s get to it, shall we?!
Wait, first- backing up to yesterday! It was my dad’s birthday so we celebrated with a beautiful fruit tart that my mom bought. It was delicious and I think my dad really liked it 🙂
Today has been the busiest and most structured day that I have had in…weeks. I actually had places to be and people to see, which was both nice, but depressing because it means that my structureless and commitment-free days of summer are over. Ah, all’s well that ends well, right?
After a four mile run, a bicep workout, butt and abs, I was starving. Mind you, it was almost noon by the time I actually got home, so I was more than ready to dive into breakfast. Side note- I’m happy to report that I have completed my first GymPact workout. All I did was turn on RunKeeper, (which I always do), and it automatically synced with GymPact. Oh, and another side note- if anyone is interested in using GymPact, you can sign up referred by me and receive five dollars to get you started. Feel free to comment or e-mail me if you’re interested!
Back to breakfast!
I gulped this bowl down and then had another half of a bowl. I was huuuungry!
About an hour later, I had an apple.
Oh, and iced coffee! Actually, it’s iced espresso. My family is addicted to Cuban espresso.
I spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning up the pool where I will be working this summer. I didn’t really plan to be there all day, so I worked through lunch and got home around five and made a kitchen sink salad. No exaggeration here- everything I found in my fridge went into this salad, but it was yummy!
I used the rest of the spring mix and added broccoli, strawberries (from the farmer’s market!), tofu, chicken, quinoa, carrots, a handful of trail mix and balsamic glaze.
As soon as I snapped a photo, I shook the whole thing up and inhaled it in no time 😉
I also ate a nectarine. I love when my mom comes home with produce!
I had to eat quickly because I had an appointment to go see if I was eligible to be a part of a study on hypnosis. I [attempted] to be hypnotized, but didn’t score high enough! It was a fun and interesting experience, though!
