Happy Saturday

Hey everyone!  Sorry I didn’t get a chance to post again yesterday.  Friday turned out to be a overly busy day.  Here are a few updates I wanted to post yesterday.

Friday Meals

Lunch yesterday was a bowl of left over soup.



I snacked on a Ezekiel pita and hummus in the afternoon and for dinner we splurged and ate Chinese food.  There is this little place in town that makes and delivers the best Chinese food I’ve ever had.  All their dishes are so delish!  Here is what we ordered last night.

Thai Summer Rolls


Sesame Chicken


and Orange Beef


I ate a little bit of everything and it was good.  I probably would never order the Thai summer rolls again, they had a weird texture.  I rather order spring rolls or crab puffs for an appetizer instead of these.  It’s always fun to try something different. 

Saturday Morning

This morning, my body feels overly filled with sodium and my wedding rings hardly fit onto my finger.  So, I am starting my day with a big cup of hot lemon water to help flush to salt from my body.  I am sure breakfast will be a piece of Ezekiel bread with PB and a cup of black coffee.  Although a pumpkin spice latte really does sound good!

I squeezed in over half of a lemon!


Since the Husband and I have been eating a lot of salty foods lately (soup and Chinese), today will probably be more of a detox day.  Everything in moderation.  I think we will need to go soup free today. 

We didn’t get around to planning out our meals and never ended up at the grocery store or Costco, so that is one of the first priorities today.  See what happens when we don’t plan out our meals, we order Chinese food!  : )  I will plan on still posting the meals and grocery list once I make them. 

Today’s workout is a running workout!  My favorite!  I’m not sure what time we will head into the gym, but I am guessing around 9 or 9:30.  I can’t wait!

Now onto Morning Meditation

Motivation for the Day:  To be as happy as I can today.  See the joy in the little things.

Three Things I am Thankful For Today:  1.  No Work!  2.  Sleeping in late (6am ha!)  3.  Beautiful weather.

Goal for the Day:  Get my body de-bloated by only eat fresh foods.

Motivational Quote of the Day:  We are what we thin- Buddha

Yesterday I was talking to the Husband and he was telling me a story about one of the gym members having a hard time getting to the gym in the morning.  The Hus said the member actually drove to the gym, sat in his car for a few minutes and decided to turn around and head home.  I laughed at this because I have been there.  I know where he is coming from.  I remember back in Minnesota I would get up at 4:30am, get to the gym by 5am, only to sit in my car and daydream about how good it would be to go back to bed.  I drove home on more than one occasion.  This got me thinking, why is it so hard to walk into the gym on certain days?

 Has this ever happened to you?  What motivation do you use when you don’t want to workout but know you should?
