6:25 am: Realize I’ve overslept. Ugh. Roll out of bed and head downstairs for a quick, but intense 30 minutes on the elliptical. Thank the weather gods that it is no longer 103° and humid, I like to save those temps for hot yoga.
Stop by Caribou for daily coffee + coconut creamer…where they know my name. I like it.
Finish reading The Pioneer Woman’s Love Story during commute (not while I was driving of course) – fantastic book, I loved it!
Breakfast: 2 slices sprouted bread + earth balance + peanut butter
Wonder if I’ll be able to make it through the afternoon (my snack stash is seriously lacking at work.)
End up being so busy at work that I don’t even think about being hungry.
Head out and realize I’m hungry. Actually I totally planned it. Stop by Starbucks (because I had a gift card) and order a strawberry smoothie. They are out of bananas. Stare at the menu with no clue what to order. Order a coffee Frappuccino light, 2% milk. “Wait, what is the light Frappuccino mean?” I ask the barista. “Sugar-free.” “Scratch that, I’ll take a regular, 2%.”
Afternoon Snack #1: Drink about a third of it in the car/my personal library.
Visit a precious little baby and want one.
Sitting in traffic, I practice/plan out the yoga sculpt class I’ll be teaching at camp. I’ve found driving is the perfect time to do this, even though people probably wonder what I’m doing.
Come home starving so the Taster whips up some “Minnesota Sushi.”
Afternoon Snack #2: also known as ham, pickle and cream cheese roll-ups.
God I’m glad I grew up in the Midwest.
Dinner: cod + tartar sauce and broccolini (my favorite!)
Sometimes I like to eat a light dinner just so I can snack later, is that wrong?
Have trouble deciding between popcorn and gelato.
Why decide? Have both!
Evening Snack #1: Belgian Chocolate Gelato – few bites
Umm, why is this the first time I’ve had gelato?! It’s amazing!
Evening Snack #2: Popcorn + a little butter
