Happy Happy Weekend Everyone!!! Can you tell I’m excited!?!
Before I go plop my booty on the couch for the rest of the evening, I wanted to share my eats today…
Today started with hot water with lemon and cayenne – Habit #1 (Who’s doing this too?! – Have you adopted this habit yet?)
Followed by 2 heaping tablespoons of Vitamineral Greens superfood powder… Did you know this serving size has 10 grams of protein for only 50 calories! And it’s all plant based! Amazing, huh?
I did an energizing hour of cardio before work and made this kale smoothie, which I enjoyed at my desk…..
I had a lunch date with my consulting firm at Capital Grille today. The bread basket is usually not tempting at all for me. But today, was no holds bar. I ate that whole cracker looking flat bread thing and it was damn good. I haven’t had white flour in a really long time.
I ordered a field green salad with no cheese and dressing on the side. Did I like it? Just compare this picture to the salads I’ve been showing you all week….and you can guess my answer to that!
Staring at the different time zone clocks waiting for our entree to come…Service wasn’t that great today. It’s a shame, because this place is the most expensive lunch in town! Good thing I wasn’t paying.
For lunch – I ordered half of the Seared Sesame Tuna – and it was still GIANT. It’s been about a week and half since I had any fish, so I thought this was a good option today. It was very tasty, but I still only ate half and left feeling really guilty for not eating all of it. I ordered a double order of asparagus in lieu of the white gingered rice. I ate all of that, however.
To celebrate starting my new project – We ordered the cookie platter for dessert. They make cookies every day in house from scratch (But then I questioned the spiral “processed” looking cookies – and found out those came from a box, but everything else was fresh made…mmm hmm)
I tried them all – just a bite of each…probably enough to put me in an afternoon coma. Luckily, the green tea I had with them perked me up to get through 3 hours straight of back to back meetings back at work.
After work – I ran like the speed of light to my car to go straight to Yoga One. I really needed some Yoga loving tonight to kick off the weekend right – I hadn’t been all week long and it was just want I needed. We did 106 frog leaps. Yep. 106. That’s $hit is crazy. Thank You Michelle.
For dinner, I had a bowl of cucumbers and these radishes for an appetizer…. I used to hate radishes, until my mom re-introduced them to me again and now I can’t get enough.
For the main course tonight – We had curried sweet potato, kale and green lentil soup. So satisfying and warming, especially during this cold rainy night. (Recipe coming soon!) We had some Mary’s Gone Sticks and Twigs on the side to add a little crunchy crunch.
As I am finishing up this post, I am gnawing down on some frozen dough left over from the Forever Cookies I made earlier in the week. Eating them right out of the freezer is addictive I tell ya – Addictive!
Doing anything fun this weekend?
Love you guys!
