Happy wacky-inflatable-air-flailing-tube-man Wednesday!!
It’s official. In a made up, just go with it, because intros are awkward anyways kinda way. Now where’s your spirit?!
My choco calendar reminded me that there’s only 8 itty bitty days and stocking shaped chocolate left til Christmas. Is it just me, or do the days & weeks drag on until suddenly it’s 5 months later and your in a different age category now. Just me? Awesome.
In the spirit of the season, my 12 Days of Giving continues where I double-dosed my giving in the form of gingerbread lattes and an extra tip for the barista.
I opted for some regular coffee with a pump of gingerbread syrup, which was even too sweet for me, but festive…And that hiatus off of caffeine didn’t last too long. Saw that one coming.
Workouts have taken swan dive after the half and a crippling leg injury, which is still lingering. I’ve finally taken the
pro re-active approach and started stretching and foam rolling in hopes that I won’t be stuck playing the role of Tiny Tim the rest of my adult life.
Instead, I’ve focused my efforts on upper body circuits (like this one from Hillary) with some yoga thrown into the mix after finding CrossFit-esque workouts and burpees all the more troublesome for my leg. As much as I like staying active, I have to admit it is a nice change to workout because I feel like it, rather than because I “have” to.
And no Wednesday would be complete without a day of eats!
Managed to snap a picture of my breakfast AFTER I gulped it down in the car on the way to work. #breakfastfail
1/2 scoop protein powder, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp flax, 1 tbsp peanut butter, kale, and frozen raspberries.
I still don’t qualify smoothies as real food, but wanted to save that for lunch which was..
3 hard boiled eggs over a spinach salad with a drizzle of olive oil and hot sauce. I swear there is actually more spinach than eggs despite how it looks.
Followed by an afternoon snack of celery & pb. #376 way to annoy your cubemates. Nosh on celery sticks.
Dinner was super classy, the usual salmon patty straight from the tupperware. Ain’t nobody got time for plates.
Yup. Back on the carrot grind. Gotta work up that winter glow. It’s amazing how quickly my orange palms come back. I’m still waiting to here back from Mr. Wonka about a seasonal position..
Thanks to Miss Jenn for hosting! Love the new badge!
Make it a great day!
Smoothies: Love them or hate em? Loathe entirely.
Lattes? Cappuccinos? Just black? Black, never go back.
