Does Tennis Count as Cross-Training?

Wow!  I know I’ve said it before, but this past week has flown!

I have been pretty bad with my eating lately and I would like to blame it on Aunt Flow.  She is bit*ch.

Let’s do a recap of the last few days.  Prepare yourself.  It’s going to be a long one!!

THURSDAY – Isn’t that crazy that the last time I blogged about my food was Thursday?!  AHHH!  So sorry.

Thursday started out at my favorite breakfast shop: Starbucks.  I ordered a grande skinny hazelnut macchiato.  According to Starbucks’ web site, this is 190 calories.  This calculation includes full-fat syrup and I always get a skinny, which is non-fat milk and sugar-free syrup.  So, over calculations!!

Lunch on Thursday was a delicious sub from a local sub shop: Dibella’s.  It’s described as ‘old fashioned submarines’ and it’s pretty much amazing.  I’ve ordered their veggie before but on Thursday, I ordered a small (6.5″) turkey sandwich with lettuce, tomato, onion and yellow mustard on toasted multi-grain bread.  It was amazing!  If you’re ever in Michigan, I highly suggest this place for a sub.

Snacks – I love snacks.  Like really love them.  My snacks were a combination of good and bad.  I had strawberries…and then I had a chocolate chip cookie.  But that cookie was so delicious!

I don’t remember what I had for dinner.  I’m pretty sure I went to the gym…can’t remember.  This is why I need to write DAILY!

FRIDAY – Friday was a really good day.  I went to the gym and did 20 minutes on the elliptical and then a great arm workout.  I was definitely sore.

Friday started out just the way I like it: with 2 pieces of whole wheat toast and peanut butter.  So filling.

And then lunch was completely random, but I was home and was lazy.  I heated up some taquito’s with some light sour cream.

Snack – I had a Nature Valley Granola Thin.  I forgot how amazing these are!

DINNER – Friday’s dinner was pretty random.  The man plays in a soccer league and doesn’t usually get home until about 8, so I’m always starving!  To combat my hunger, I made a salad with romaine lettuce, broccoli and carrots covered in Bolthouse Farm’s creamy yogurt blue cheese dressing.  Seriously, this stuff is amazing! And it’s only 35 calories.

Then, when the man got home, we decided to order some take out Chinese food.  I know, I know, Chinese food is super bad for you…but I didn’t eat that much.  #portioncontrol  I ordered the sweet and sour chicken and rice.  I probably had 1.5 servings.

We spent the night snuggled up in bed watching our own Law and Order: SVU marathon.  Who doesn’t love Olivia and Elliott?  They just make me so happy!

SATURDAY – A crazy Saturday.  We had lots of errands to run (including going to a car dealership to shop for a new car!) and then I just wanted to sleep.  I did about 20 minutes of yoga as exercise and I feel really good.  After our errands, we came home and played tennis for a little over an hour.  The man is super great at tennis and I want to be.  We hit back and forth and got some really good volleys going.  The good news is, I woke up Sunday morning and my arms were sore!  Probably a combo of Friday’s work out with tennis moves that I’m not used to.  What a fun day!

BREAKFAST –  Before we did anything, we ate breakfast.  I ate 2 pieces of whole wheat toast with strawberry jam and butter.  So delicious.

We ran our first errand, and then swung by the man’s all-time favorite place: Chipotle.  Anytime we do anything wedding related or something he doesn’t really want to do, I bribe him by saying we can go to Chipotle for lunch!  Works every time!

LUNCH – I ordered a burrito bowl with brown rice, chicken, guacamole, lettuce and cheese.  It was quite tasty.   I think I’ll be ordering the brown rice from now on!

Then, we went to one of my favorite places:

Anthropologie!

I love this store.  Although I can’t really afford the majority of the clothes in there, I left with pair of blue earrings and the ‘J’ mug. Score!

SNACKS – My main snack, another trip to Starbucks, but this time, it was for an iced skinny hazelnut macchiato!

And a trip to the mall would not be complete without a trip to Godiva!  I ordered a chocolate dipped macaroon.  #yummy

DINNER – Leftover Chinese while watching The Dilemma on E!  I had low expectations for this movie, but it was actually pretty good!  I love Vince Vaughn.

I can’t believe it’s Sunday, but it’s time to start dinner!  How was your weekend?
