my less serious day: short skirts and guacamole

This morning I woke up and saw guacamole in my fridge. And all was right in the world.


(Slightly too short-for-work) skirt and top: LOFT outlet; necklace: LOFT; shoes: Tsubo via mom


This morning I went on a 30-minute run at working pace with L, followed by a 30-minute stationary bike ride (Pike's Peak). I fit in two 10-15 minutes walks, one after lunch and one with L when I got home. After work, I did a 60-minute stationary bike ride (ramp interval). Don't be too impressed - I did the entire hour while reading a book, which I normally wouldn't consider a sufficiently intense workout. But, today my energy was so low it was a light ride or no ride at all.


For breakfast, I had a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original cereal (check out my recent review) with blueberries and 2% milk. I usually drink almond milk, but had some 2% leftover in the fridge and wanted to drink it before it went bad. No need to waste good consumables.

Lunch was a Smart Ones frozen entree. For afternoon snack (which was eaten in two phases) I had almonds, carrot sticks, and guacamole.

Dinner was a spinach, onion, and cheese quesadilla and steamed broccoli. I sauteed onions in a small amount of olive oil, then took the pan off the heat and added spinach and salsa. I added this mixture along with 1/4 cup of cheese on a corn tortilla. I grilled the tortilla in a pan on medium heat until the cheese melted (~2 minutes per side). I made too much spinach so I added the extra on top along with a bit of guacamole (surprise!) on two. This cooking experiment worked okay, but adding salsa to the spinach mixture left them soggy and I would have preferred crispy! Next time I'll leave it as a topping.

Dessert was Greek yogurt, almonds, GoLean Original, chocolate chips, and a drizzle of honey. All in my favorite yellow bowl.
