Note to self: If you don’t go to bed until 12:00 a.m., you will never get up in time to go to the gym the next day. I hate when I stay up too late on a work night!
I did have time to do my 30 minute Classical Stretch – this one was called “feet and knees” and I swear at least 20 minutes was in the plie position – my quads were really burning by the end! But my Achilles heel felt amazing afterwards.
I hit the ground running when I got to work – didn’t even have time for a picture, but turns out you’ve seen my breakfast parfait before.
It was a gorgeous day – 70 degrees, sunny skies. I ended up biking for only 45 minutes – my quads were not happy with the bike ride after the stretches! So much so that half way through the ride I had to get off my bike and stretch in the grass. Yep, I am klassy like that.
Don’t you love how my fingernail is in the shot! This made me laugh when I saw it.
Lunch was a turkey wrap on lavish bread – 2 ounces of turkey, 3/4 ounce swiss cheese, 1 tablespoon buffalo wild wing sauce, baby spinach. All wrapped up in a nice little package. With carrot fries and watermelon and strawberries on the side. A delicious lunch!
The dip is fat free Greek dressing – it’s Maplewood Farms brand and really tasty.
But by mid-afternoon, I was starving. My bosses chip stash kept calling me “Eat me Biz – you know you love honey mustard pretzels!” But I had a better idea – I had an apple with a teaspoon of peanut butter and that did the trick. I actually thought of my inspirational video yesterday – on how the runner must have trained hard to get to where he was – thank you inspiration!
And Debbi – this picture is for you, to let you know that I do keep hot sauce at my desk at all times.
You can tell that the weather is getting summer like because my dinner plate looks just like a summer cook out – cheddar brat, corn on the cob and some of my leftover crock pot baked beans. The corn was just okay. And for the record, that’s not too much mustard.
Now our inspiration video today – just be warned that you may need a piece of kleenex nearby, and you might not want to watch this at work. Tony and I first saw this a couple years ago, and I am pretty sure both our eyes were weepy by the end.
It’s long – in two videos, but it is worth the watch!
Tony and I thank our lucky stars that both our kids were healthy growing up!
