my less serious day: let the crazy out

Just like the beginning of any healthy relationship, I have been hiding a bit of my crazy from you, dear blog readers, these first couple of months. I think it's time to tell you this:

I always eat my salads in mixing bowls and I often let a coin tell me what to have for dinner.

There...I said it. Do you still love me?

Wearing.

Jeans: GAP; cami: Old Navy; cardigan: J Crew; necklace: gifted via Mom; pumps: Miz Mooz via Piperlime

Doing.

This morning's workout was a 35-minute stationary bike ride (ramp interval) followed by a 15-minute walk with L. I also took L on a 10-minute walk on my lunch break. The day concluded with a 60-minute Body Pump class. This week I increased my squat weight and I.am.sore.

Eating.


Pre-run I had 1/2 banana, 1/2 mug of black coffee, and 1 pint of water. For breakfast I had a (you guessed it) bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with Post Great Grains Raisins, Dates, & Pecans cereals, 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk.


Lunch was a mixing bowl salad beast with spinach, green cabbage, broccoli, roasted red peppers, onion, dates, peanuts, hummus, and balsamic vinegar.


My afternoon snack was a piece of whole wheat bread with peanut butter and cinnamon.


Heads meant dinner was a massive quantity of roasted Brussels sprouts and eggplant, a Morning star chicken patty, and ketchup.


Dessert was plain Greek yogurt, chocolate sprinkles (which make me happy), and honey.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Wednesday, February 1.

    1. haha! i was wondering if someone was going to ask that. tails meant i made the brussels and eggplant, but instead of chicken patty and ketchup i would have added scrambled eggs and soy sauce. :)

  10. I lovelovelove that sweater! You are adorable.
    I always eat my salads out of mixing bowls, and top my veggies (well, almost everything actually) with ketchup. Annies Organic Ketchup is the best!
