Two sneaky little bunny rabbits watched me eat my delicious breakfast sandwiches.
Another adorable and awesome present from Ann. SO CUTE. It's a pair of black pepper and sea salt grinders that are magnetic so I can keep them on my fridge. LOVE THEM! ;)
After breakfast I decided to get dressed and head to the gym. I guess I was still unable to relax! I was checking out the weather forecast for next week and it's not looking good! They're calling for snow every single day except Wed. The white death marathon will start tonight at about 6:00 pm. BAH! I figured I better go get a workout in while I still can!!
Once again I focused on cardio. It was weird being there without Ann. This was the first time since we joined that I was completely on my own. She had holiday plans with her boyfriends family today. I was able to hustle and get in and out quickly though which was nice.
Elliptical - Interval training
30 minutes at 5-7 resistance
20 minutes at 7-9 resistance
10 minutes at 9-12 resistance
Total of 715 calories burned (AWE YEAH!)
After the workout I was feeling good, weak, cold and pukish all at the same time. Signs of a good workout I dare say. HA! After the gym I ran to the grocery store to pick up a few random things that we needed. By the time I got home I was STARVING! I quickly made lunch. I had a toasted English muffin sandwich with hummus, arugula and pastrami. On the side I had veggies, more hummus, brussel sprouts and bread & butter pickles. So good! I LOVE bread and butter pickles!!
After lunch I finally got to relax for a bit. I collapsed on the couch with a comforter and lay there like a bum for a solid two hours. I loved every single second of it. When 7:00 rolled around I started prepping dinner. On the fabulous menu tonight were my veggie egg rolls and Bangkok curry soup. I can't claim the soup though, that came pre-packaged. ;)
The egg roll recipe is super EASY and healthy. Into a pot toss the following...
- 1 bag of tri-color coleslaw mix
- 1 cup white mushrooms, chopped fine
- 1 cup Morning Star Farms meal started grounds
- 2 tbs low sodium soy sauce
- 2 tbs teriyaki sauce
- 1 tbs Thai chili paste
- 1 tbs oyster sauce
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped fine
Dinner was delicious, spicy and flavorful! We both loved it!!
I dipped the egg rolls in some spicy, sweet chili sauce. YUM!
After dinner I took a nice long bath and Nick got ready to visit his friends in Canton. A friend from high school that he hasn't see in years was in town for the holidays and the boys were gathering at our friend Blairs house to catch up. I hate that he was heading out and driving as far as he was because it started snowing a few hours ago. STUPID SNOW! He promised to be careful though! HE BETTER BE!
After my bath I was craving a yogurt mess like crazy. Into a bowl went plain Oikos, a small banana, a handful of pomegranate granola, coconut flakes and a spoonful of pumpkin butter. YUMMMMMMMMMM!!
I think I'll watch a sappy tear jerker movie since Nick is leaving. I could use a good sissy cry session! HA!
Have a great night!!
