Wow – Happy Hump Day! Was your Wednesday as crazy as mine? I had a training from 9:30 – 1:30 and then a client call from 2:30 – 4. It was quite a jam packed day. But everybody’s busy right? Let’s just jump right in, shall we?
BREAKFAST – Simple office breakfast: yogurt and granola with a banana on the side.
BUT THEN…I went into my meeting and PANERA was there. In order not to seem like a total crazy, I didn’t take any pictures, but I got half a sesame bagel with a little bit of cream cheese.
My training went into the lunch hour again with Panera being catered. I was a good little girl and didn’t get a sandwich! I filled my plate with salad! It was surprising filling.
After the training, I came on home to get on my afternoon call and needed a snack. I put some Cheez-It’s into a mixing bowl and chomped on those during my conference call!
What is so cool about working from your apartment with a candle burning? It makes working so much more relaxing.
WORK OUT – I looked up the yoga schedule today and found that the yoga teacher isn’t exactly a favorite. Her classes are more into stretching than working my muscles and I really needed harder work out, so I stayed home and did some of my favorite yoga poses with some abs.
- Plie Squats – 25 reps, 2 times
- Calf Raises – 25 reps, 2 times
- Salutations from Chair to Warrior 1 to Warrior 2 to Warrior 3 – 10 times (this will get your quads burning)
- Boat Pose – Hold for 30 seconds
- Boat Pose with Side Crunch – 30 reps, 4 times
It doesn’t look like much, but it was enough to get my heart rate up. I have to admit that I’m still a little sore from Sunday yoga but I am really looking forward to my run on Saturday!
DINNER – Tonight for dinner was in honor of Lent, meat free. So, we had shrimp alfredo with Barilla Plus pasta and Bertolli light alfredo sauce. It’s only 50 calories per serving! I also put some broccoli in mine, as well! And then I had a few Lindor truffles. It’s safe to say that I will not be giving up chocolate for Lent! I gotta say that I’ve done quite well with eating so far this week!
