Yesterday was a pretty typical weekday for me, so I figured I’d share my
hectic typical workday with you. Warning: today’s food consumption was not typical, well, maybe typical for a rushed Monday morning and not packing lunch the night before..
Breakfast was a quick stop at Starbucks for a cold pressed juice and a plain toasted multigrain bagel which I later put pb2 on.
Look at all of that fruit! And the whole thing was only about 200 calories. It was awesome. God knows how much it was.. Thanks for the gift cards fam!
Work, work, work.. Then lunch at noon, which was leftover butternut squash soup and a slice of leftover old forge pizza (eggplant, spinach, tomato, garlic, no cheese. die..) from the weekend. Sorry, no pic! Ate it before I remembered.
Next, running errands on the second half of my lunch break. Then coffee at three, done with work at five.
Typically on non sports days I go to crossfit at 6:15. There is a 5:15 class that I sometimes take advantage of, but my friends all go to the 6:15, so more errands (grocery shopping at Wegman’s on Mondays always) before crossfit.
By the way, you sucked yesterday Wegman’s. They were out of a quarter of the things on my list! I NEED my red curry paste!!
So, truth time. I haven’t been to crossfit in about a week and a half and I was mildly terrified to go yesterday. And I was right about it. It sucked big time. Here was the WOD:
Truth be told, push-ups are my kryptonite. Horrible. And squats kill me too. Like not walking properly for days. Needless to say, I used a ten lb plate. I think I made it about five and a half rounds. I suck. Shut up.
After crossfit, race home (usually get home around 7:45) to have a protein shake and start dinner (and watch Jeopardy of course). Here’s a list of recipes I’ve been eyeing up:
But of course, by this point I’m exhausted and I go with a staple in our house that the boy loves. Quinoa stir fry with garlicky kale, red beans, Wegman’s soy sausage crumbles, garlic, a little chili powder and a handful of sun dried tomatoes (last ingredient was new this week). It rocks. Plus there’s always leftovers. 🙂
Then a little couch time, knitting, bob’s burgers, svu, can’t beat it. And of course this:
Bed by ten-thirty? Yes please!
