Happy Hump Day!
Halfway through the week, woo! I hope you guys have had a great week so far, and that it isn’t as gloomy outside where you are as it is here in Boston. Meh.
Frankie had to wake up at 5:00 am for work yesterday morning 😮 and unfortunately I wasn’t able to fall back asleep until right before my own alarm went off, at 6:20. I woke up feeling pretty groggy (I’ve had a slight cold all week), but I still made it to my sister’s 7:00 am spin class! I would never miss my Tuesday morning spin with her (unless I break my foot or something crazy like that 😉 ). The theme of the class was “Kanye, Kendrick, Kygo, & Kaskade” so it was a super motivating playlist and a super sweaty workout!
I took the subway straight to work and showered at work. Then I had my Starbucks coffee and GOLEAN cereal with half a banana and vanilla almond milk. I love banana in my cereal.
For lunch I had the same salad as yesterday – spring mix, half an avocado, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, and a light Italian dressing. I make such big lunch salads that they take me like 30 minutes to eat.
Another super busy afternoon at the office, but I was able to get out for a short walk. I also took a break to snack on a Dark Raspberry Truffle No Cow Bar. My nose was so stuffy at that point that I could barely taste it, though 😦 .
After work I headed to a hip hop yoga class downtown. It was only 45 minutes long, but it was fast-paced and really challenging! I love doing yoga to hip hop – makes you feel very badass 😉 .
When I got home I had a GT’s “Gingerade” booch. PS I just realized that I haven’t drunk diet soda in like a month… kombucha FTW!
And then I cooked up a dinner of Sriracha-drizzled tofu, crispy brussels sprouts, a sweet potato, and some mushrooms. I could eat mushrooms every day and never get sick of them! They are definitely in my top five favorite foods ever.
I spent the rest of the night doing more wedding planning (of course), reading “Fitness Junkie” (almost done with it!), and watching “Sex and the City 2” . I went to bed at 9:30 with the hope of waking up feeling much less groggy/stuffy.
I hope you guys have the best hump day! See you bright and early tomorrow.
What is your favorite food in the world? As I said, mushrooms are up there but I think my favorite would have to be some cheesy pasta… or really thick, creamy vanilla bean ice cream… or sweet potato tempura sushi… okay I can’t pick one.
Have you ever done a hip hop yoga class before? What are your thoughts?!
Random question: How do you guys take good looking photos of food/anything when it’s nighttime? My lighting is awful but I’m not really sure how to make things look any better…
