Happy Friday!! Even though I have to work tomorrow morning, I’m counting today as a victory. My 7-day work week is almost over and I’m leaving work at lunch today, which I need because you guys….I am wiped out. My cousin is getting married tonight, though, so I’m excited about that! I’ll get to see a lot of family and I’m looking forward to what I’m sure will be a good time.
Yesterday was a super busy day of meetings, a presentation, and catching up on lots of work. I did take a few minutes to eat lunch at my desk. They make some awesome chicken salad and homemade croissants on campus, so I picked some up and took a quick break.
After working a few more hours, I ventured out to the campus farmer’s market. They had some great stuff for sale, and I picked up a loaf of sourdough bread as well as some delicious granola. They had a bunch of flavors, but I decided on pumpkin pie and quinoa crunch.
Finally, the highlight of my evening was sitting down to a dinner of BBQ pork chops, wild rice, and veggies, courtesy of Riley.
Nothing fancy, but it was an easy weeknight dinner. Bella was the best part of dinner. She usually sits and stares at us while we eat anyway (she knows I’m a sucker), but last night she was literally drooling.
I tried so hard to get a picture that captured the little trail of drool dripping from her mouth, but I couldn’t get a good shot. She’s too funny! Her pitiful stares worked because I let her finish my plate when I got full.
Workout & Breakfast
This morning was my first 4:30 alarm in a while since I’ve been traveling. Not gonna lie, it was super hard! I almost wimped out, but then I thought of the wedding food and wine I’ll be consuming tonight and it got me out of bed. Nothing like standing outside your gym’s doors at 4:58 AM waiting for them to open to make you feel like a crazy person.
Today’s workout was a 30 minute run on the treadmill, then this quick abs workout.
This wasn’t a super challenging workout, but by using a relatively heavy medicine ball and moving quickly through each set I was able to make it harder.
For breakfast today, I decided to try out my new granola! I opted for the Quinoa Crunch flavor, and I was so happy with the ingredients list on the back.
For all you ladies out there that make your own granola, you have my utmost respect. I would love to be ambitious enough to do that, but I’m just too lazy. This means I was super happy to have granola that I can pretend is homemade! I mixed the granola with some vanilla Greek yogurt and that small dollop in the middle is what was left of my maple almond butter.
Lots to do today, so I gotta run. I’ll catch up with you all later and I hope you have a great weekend!
