Good morning, IT’S FRIDAY!!! (I don’t sound happy with this bit of news at all, right?)
The only downside is it’s supposed to be miserable allllll weekend long- so not cool. I hope it doesn’t rain non-stop as I’d like to be able to get in a long run this weekend. I’m aiming to get up to 6 miles, so we’ll see how the weather holds up.
But, I’ll talk a bit about this week’s failures as I need to own up to it so it doesn’t happen again:
Yesterday’s lunch was at the mall, and I think from the lack of regular square meals from the past couple of days, my body was STARVING!! I seriously have not been this hungry in a long time. I was originally going to get a salad from Chop Crazy- yeah that didn’t happen, I instead went for the Tandoori, which is this awesome Indian fast-food place where I always get the same thing: their Paneer Naan Wrap- OMG is this ever good!! They have huge chunks of Paneer in their tomato-based curry sauce with onions and peppers served up with potatoes and salad, neither of which is anything special and I usually don’t bother with them. I also got a potato samosa to go with it. I was happily full. I don’t believe I was hungry again until past 8pm last night- a true rarity for me.
As I mentioned yesterday, my plan was to leave work at 5:00ish, head over to the gym for a quick workout and then meet up with some friends to watch a bit of the hockey game. Well upon entering my gym, I realized I had forgotten my running shoes!! (Who does this? Me, apparently!) I was pretty upset that I had done that as I haven’t had a decent workout since Monday.
In any case, I went to meet up with my friends as I haven’t seen them in several months so I really wanted to catch up. It was a lot of fun and as always playoff atmosphere can be pretty catchy. For the record I am a Leafs fan even though I live in Habs country. It’s become more of a joke than anything else because the Montrealers get so sensitive about it hehe
We decided to leave after the first period and since I don’t have a lot of food at my place and it was close to 8, I picked up some subway instead. Oops!
So I had this bad boy:
Veggie sub with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, pickles and hot peppers, with a bit of mustard and vinaigrette. It really hit the spot, I can’t remember the last time I had subway!
I went to bed pretty late and determined to turn my day around. So this morning I kicked it off on a high note. Behold my Sports Bottle Smoothie!
I was running a bit late this morning (what else is new) but really wanted a smoothie for breakfast. So I fired up my blender that is more ancient than Chia seeds.
The mix had:
1 c. almond milk
A few strawberries
1 tbsp Chia
Since I was running late I poured the contents into one of my sports bottles and chugged while driving to work (aren’t I such the multi-tasker?)
Today’s goal: Go to gym @ Lunch!
My friend Tess and her boyfriend are driving down from Ottawa to attend tonight’s birthday festivities and I promised them Coconut Curry over Quinoa so I’ll need to head home right after work and get cracking/ clean up the house a bit before they get here 😉
On another fun note- I figured out my costume for tonight. It’s going to be so 80s you’ll think its 1984 when you read tomorrow’s post. 😉
Hope you have a fabulous Friday!
