It’s going to be a good day y’all!!! Just because I say so :-).
It may have something to do with the twelve hours of sleep I got last night. Yep, that is right…12 hours!!! The sad thing is that still doesn’t make up for all the hours I missed from the previous two nights. Goodness, I was an exhausted mess because after I came home from the gym and ate dinner, I literally passed out. And I have the best husband EVER because he cleaned up and puts the kids to bed and just let me sleep the night away.
That is LOVE, my friends! 🙂
Even though I felt like poo most of yesterday, I did manage to make it to the gym. I didn’t push it though and stuck to just a couple miles of running. Besides, I haven’t run in what feels like forever so I wanted to take it easy. And I did.
I was dreading the gym because I figured I would have a hard time getting a treadmill but shockingly, there was only one other person on one. I am certainly not complaining, but where were all of the New Year Resolution makers?
I don’t know, but they sure did miss out because the gym had a basketful of Justin’s samples and coupons they were giving away. That is motivation enough for me to make it back. I want to snag a couple more before the week is up!!
The not so good news from last night…..Lentil Walnut Apple Loaf.
It was a bomb.
It was edible as far as I was concerned(just don’t ask my family) but it wasn’t something I was excited to eat. It was mushy which I was NOT expecting. Oh well, not all recipes can be winners.
I did manage to eat a piece, with extra glaze on top(cause that part was good) along with a spinach salad.
After my restful night of sleep, I got up this morning and made myself the most delicious cup of coffee. I even took an extra minute to froth some milk to go on top.
After getting in a great workout, courtesy of Billy Blanks, Tae-Bo Bootcamp, I fueled myself up with a delicious and healthy(but freezing cold, brrrrr) green smoothie.
This week one of my main focuses is going to be on getting in lots of green veggies. While I like salads I am not always in the mood for them so loading greens into smoothies is a great way to make sure I get them in.
I think I am going to go hop into a steamy hot bath(my favorite) to warm up and then hit up Costco or Trader Joe’s for some good groceries. I sure hope y’all have as good a day as the one I plan on having!!
Has your gym been busier since the New Year began?
What is your favorite way to incorporate green veggies into your diet?
