Just a quick post this morning as I have to get to work early so I can leave on time for a special event I’m attending tonight!
Yesterday’s eats went as follows:
Gingerbread Clif Bar for breakkie, Roasted Pear and Roquefort Salad with Toasted Pecans and Fresh Cranberry Vinaigrette
I took my lunch break at 12:30 and made it to my first spinning class since my accident back in March. Even though I knew I couldn’t stay for the full 45 minute class, I wanted to get back in the saddle and conquer my fear. I walked into the room and right up to the instructor and said “Hi, I’ve never taken your class. Could you help me set up my bike so I don’t faceplant over the handlebars?” In addition to a few chuckles from the other participants, the instructor happily obliged and I finally know how to properly set myself up for a good spinning class. I’m so glad I conquered my fear and my shyness!!
Dinner was supposed to be roasted vegetables, but The Huz suggested a pasta dish just before I left work. Who am I to pass on pasta? The result was organic free range chicken breast with fresh broccoli sauteed with olive oil and four cloves of garlic tossed with fettucini and crumbled feta cheese.
For dessert, I had a small bowl of coconut sorbet with dried cherries. I spent the rest of the evening chugging water and watching the Biggest Loser finale. For some reason, I rarely think to drink water when I’m at home. I’ll drink 1.5L or so during the day at work, but then I stop as soon as I walk through my door. I’m going to try filling up a glass as soon as I get home and just refilling it throughout the night. Hopefully that’ll do the trick.
Did you watch the Biggest Loser finale last night? What did you think of all the contestants and their weight loss? Are you happy Danny won? I am!!
Last, I’ll leave you with a photo of what Bodhi hopes to do all day while this lousy wind and rain storm blows through Manhattan.
