Good Evening! While I am anxiously awaiting my comedy debut on TV tonight – I thought I would blog really quick about what happened today….
It was quite insane – I think I did a total of 100 pushups today in between all the squat jacks and burpees and such… I’ve really lost my motivation to work out lately – I need to figure out something fast before I go crazy! I tell myself everyday – I am going to come up with a new routine, but for some reason I don’t.
I followed up the workout by drinking a huge kale smoothie with lots of strawberries, chia seeds and protein powder.
I had the day off so I quickly showered and headed out to run errands. I finally picked up my marriage license from the register of deeds – Hilarious, I know – It’s been almost 6 years – whoops. Truth be told, the only reason I needed it was because of some new insurance law… If it hadn’t been for this new law, my marriage license would of probably never crossed my mind in a million years!
On the way back home, I picked up some goodies from Berrybrook Farms – I got the bean burrito for my husband and I had the taco salad sans cheese… added avocado instead – DELICIOUS. I love this salad – the hot black beans and salsa means you don’t need to add any additional dressing, it’s really perfect. I also had a cup of their soup of the day – Lima Bean Succotash…
In the afternoon, before I started to clean out my closet – I nervously ate a few bowls of this organic popcorn from Trader Joe’s to procrasinate…. I discovered this at my friend Amy’s House a few weeks ago and had to pick me up a bag…
Amy is a Trader Joe’s aficionado…
After finally cleaning the clothes from the floor of my closet… I headed over to Fedex Kinkos… I finally got my heart rate monitor all packed up and ready to send in for repairs. If I’m going to start a new routine at the gym, I am going to need some major motivation – in the form of accurate heart rate and calorie count!
While at Kinkos – I couldn’t help but realize all the poor choices for food available. I seriously, wouldn’t buy one single thing in this whole display. Not even the trail mix – it’s full of artificial colors and preservatives. Yuck. This despicable practice of preying on people’s impulse buys won’t fool me!
Back at home – I did a quick 15 mins of Pilates….stretching a night is something that I’ve made a habit of lately and I am totally noticing major changes in my flexibility – even just 15 mins does wonders.
I started dinner with a simple arugula salad tossed with balsamic vinegar mixed with honey…
Then ate the rest of the kale chips I purchased from HHM earlier in the week – Have you had these yet? They are to die for! I need to make these at home – so I can share the recipe…
For the main course – I made these veggie burgers. I ate two! One with organic ketchup and pickles and one with a little organic sour cream…. I can’t decide which way I liked better…. I have several left over – a couple already in the freezer for emergencies.
For a sweet snack after dinner – I had some ginger tea and a mixture of gojis, cashews and mini chocolate chips. This bowl is not representative of my portion – I probably went back to the cabinet about 3 times. Just being honest!
So tomorrow is Fat Tuesday…. Every year I give something up for Lent… Last year I gave up watching TV…. (and that’s when Food Babe was finally born!) I can’t believe I’m actually going to be on TV tonight… Ooooo the irony!
I have no clue what I am giving up this year… Maybe I could add in something? Or do something new everyday? Any ideas for me? I only have 24 hours to figure it out – Help!
Oh and I won’t give up cake, cause you know what? I’m a spring baby! I have lots of cake on my birthday every year – There’s no way I am going to give that up!
Sleep Tight… or stay up to watch me on Time Warner Channel 21 ok?
