One Busy Day

15 Dec

Hey everyone!  Sorry for just getting around to posting today, it’s been one very busy day.  It’s the 15th, and that means it’s payday for our personal trainers.  It usually takes me a good two days to to cut their checks and update all the information in our systems to make sure everything is right on track.  In addition to that, I trained this morning and had to deal with a few other things.  Before I knew it, it was 3pm!  I love days when time flies at work!

I have a few quick things to share with you.  This morning my workout at the gym went like this:  40 minutes on the treadmill then 20 minutes of core work.  We didn’t see anything cool on the way to the gym, but on the way back we did see this and I got super excited!

What is it you might ask?  It’s the telltale signs of a beautiful sunrise!

I love sunrises and sunsets!  Brilliant colors!  This sunrise totally made my day awesome!

Breakfast was 2 eggs on a low sodium piece of Ezekiel bread topped with salsa and a little pepper jack cheese and a cup of coffee.

Am snack at work was a green smoothie (2-3 cups spinach, 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk and 1 banana).  I poured it into a to go bottle and took it with me to work.  By 10:30am, I was so happy I made this, it hit the spot!

Around noon, I had a blueberry Chobani (not pictured).

I was pretty hungry when I got home from work, so I made up a Ezekiel pita, hummus, spring mix and natural turkey sandwich.  It was so-so.

We are planning on a salad with chicken breast for dinner.  I’m not sure what kind of salad, but we will probably end up eating later then usually since we had another late lunch today!  I’m not sure what else I’ll be doing tonight since the Husband is already into his PS3 and I don’t imagine him stopping anytime soon.  I might need to find a new hobby!

Question:  What are your favorite at home hobbies?

    Wow, how early do you go to the gym?! I am lucky, I have a treadmill upstairs and a stationary bike downstairs, so basically I can just stumble out of bed and I’m likely to land on my method of exercise that day. 🙂

    BEAUTIFUL sunrise. And I haven’t had a blueberry chobs in ages. I am going to pick a few up this weekend- they are one of my favs. My husband plays xbox, I feel for you.
