Yesterday and Today

Picture 738

That would be me yesterday. Err the day before yesterday, seeing as it is 12:44am now. Oh well.

Reasons for that face?

All before noon on Friday, I ripped my jeans getting them on. I left my study notes for my physics exam at home. And I did not get to the last 2 problems of the exam because I was stuck on a relatively easy question.

Sigh.

Moving on to today (yesterday).

Post-volunteering at the homeless shelter I took myself to the gym. I figure ripping my jeans is a sign that I need some cardio in my life.

I did the not- elliptical. This machine went out and back and less in a circle……… anyways. Twenty minutes in I was a done, I did some abs and then ran a mile outdoors.

Perks of being an ab crunch instructor? I do my own workout on myself.

Fun thing about running outdoors? I can watch my shadow run. I like the way my ponytail bounces back and forth.

Oh and I ran a mile in 12 minutes. Yeah, no shame in a slow time!

Post-shower, I feasted.

Today’s lunch is brought to you by Trader Joe’s and Costco.

Basically the two most amazing places on Earth, because they give out free samples!

Tj’s Naan with Eggplant Garlic spread I just toasted it all together for about 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Nice and crispy.

Topped with 2% milk Mexican blend cheese ( you can even replace the eggplant spread with pizza sauce)

Picture 769  Costco greens with walnuts, strawberries, cranraisins, fetaaaa and balsamic dressing.

Picture 771 Pita sea salt puffs? Also from Tj’s. They were a bit too small for my dipping likes.

Picture 773 The star of the meal? Cilantro and Jalapeño Hummus from Tj’s. This stuff is SO amazing. It does not even last a full day in my house.

This meal rocked my face off.

Are you a Costco and/or Tj’s lover?

    I adore Trader Joes…but they don’t have them here in Austin. It makes me so so sad! I’m sorry you had a rough day on Friday…but I’m glad that you were able to eat some good food, exercise and volunteer. All great and good things! Thank you for sharing. I hope your week is full of hope and joy.
