Happy Birthday Josh!
Happy Monday blog friends!
I had a short work day today because I took off early to hang out with my hubby for his 29th birthday today :)
This morning, I woke up very early to get in a work out before work since I knew I’d have a busy day today. Before hitting the gym, I fueled up on some oats with PB and banana.
At the gym, we did a cardio circuit that went something like this: 5 minute warm up on the treadmill, 5 minute moderate walk on treadmill, 5 minutes on the bike, 5 minutes of step ups (wow!), 5 minutes elliptical, 5 minutes treadmill and 5 minute cool down on the bike. And some stretching!
We had a party at work mid-morning where I had some veggies from a veggie tray with salsa and a few cubes of cheese. It was the perfect amount to hold me over, so much lighter than some snacks I’ve been enjoying lately.
I had lunch at home, which was a nice change. I made a salad with romaine, tuna salad and a pickle, plus a carrot and hummus on the side.
After lunch we went to the Zoo! It was so much fun and kind of a nice day for late July, only mid-80’s :) Here’s a pic we took while we were there:
Gorillas hanging out! They held hands a few times too, aww ;-)
On the way home, I snacked on some mixed nuts and a couple pieces of dark chocolate later on.
For dinner, we went to Wick’s Pizza, Josh’s favorite place to get pizza and a local chain here in Louisville. I’m not a big pizza eater, but when I do get it, this is one of the best places to go!
We had a big group, so a few of us split a veggie delight, which came with olives (green and black), tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and normally green peppers but one person didn’t like them so we left those off. It was a HUGE pie!
I ate two slices this size:
Then one small corner piece. While I was eating it, I noticed I was getting full so I stopped. Normally I could’ve and would’ve eaten more but I chose to listen to my cues this time and I’m so glad I did. I also drank about 8 huge glasses of water tonight ;-)
For dessert, I ate two more squares of dark chocolate. I bought a huge bar and I’m hoping it will last me all week!
Happy Birthday Josh :)
Hope you all had a great day too!
