Happy hump day friends! I can’t believe we’re already half way through the week!
I woke up right at 5:45 again yesterday morning. I’m liking these super early natural wake-ups 😉 . I read for a bit and then headed to my sister’s spin class! Pre-foot break, I went to her class every week, so it’s been great to be back. My foot did hurt a bit, but I don’t think I made anything worse.
For breakfast I had my usual Starbucks and GOLEAN cereal with strawberries and almond milk. I find this breakfast so filling – it keeps me full until lunchtime!
For lunch I had a big salad with baby spinach, carrots, tomatoes, an avocado, and light Italian dressing.
Then I got outside for a short walk! I spent the rest of the afternoon busy busy at work, and snacked on a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Quest Bar. As much as I’m liking No Cow Bars/trying to be mostly vegan, I seriously miss my Questies. This tasted soooo good.
I left the office a little before 5:00 and headed to a cardio pilates class! It was a great mix of cardio moves (jumping jacks, mountain climbers, plank jacks) and pilates moves (mostly abs and butt work). It felt great to really burn out my muscles.
When I got home I had a GT’s Gingerade kombucha.
And cooked up a huge stir fry with tofu, carrots, broccoli, jicama, peppers, radishes, and celery. I also made some green chili and cilantro polenta on the side, because I was feeling super hungry.
I spent the rest of the evening reading (my book club is tonight and I’m only about half way through the book, ah!) and doing some more BIP catch-up. I hope you guys had a great Tuesday and are ready to conquer this hump day!!
Are you a polenta fan? If so, how do you like to prepare it?
What’s your favorite protein bar?
