This morning, I woke up totally confused by the fact that I was waking up at 5:30 a.m. on a Saturday. It took me a good 10 seconds to remember that I had to work at 7:00, at which point I shoved the covers to the side, put on my sneakers, and went downstairs for a quick 13-minute workout.
I completed the latest ZWOW – but not really, because I adjusted the workout quite a bit. I swapped the broad jumps for barrier jumps and the thrusters for bicep curls to an overhead press (still using the heaviest weight I could without sacrificing form). It was great! I’m not a fan of thrusters or broad jumps; the latter exercise always makes me feel like I’m going to fall over upon landing. Anyone else share this?
Whole Foods & Fig Lovin’
My fellow Twitter friends: you all are hysterical! After enjoying lunch and getting some blogging done, I went grocery shopping and sent out this tweet:
I was instantly flooded with well wishes, all of which totally cracked me up. Here’s a snippet.
My Twitter girls have my back! Speaking of my girls, I owe many thanks to Lori and Michelle, who inspired me to purchase some fresh figs at Whole Foods yesterday. I enjoyed a few this morning and I really enjoy the light flavor and chewy texture, both of which remind me a little bit of a plum.
And, for the record, I only purchased one unnecessary item at Whole Foods (a Pulsin’ bar) and spent just $40!
When I got home from work, I more-than ready for lunch! I threw some raw spinach, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, sauerkraut, and sliced Brussels sprouts into a bowl while a Sunshine burger toasted away. Then, I made a dressing out of 2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast, 2 Tbsp. hummus, and 2 1/2 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk.
It was quite the delicious lunch and I’m kind of dreaming about it again. Le sigh!
Room Decor Update
My hunt for wall decor is still in progress. I’ve decided against purchasing the aforementioned carousel and record player because Urban Outfitters’ shipping costs are rude. Instead, I’ve been looking to etsy for ideas – much more affordable! Here’s what I currently have my eye on:
I’m banking on some sort of owl wall art too but I’ve yet to find one that isn’t 70′s Grandma-inspired. Nothing against Grandmas – just not my style! If all else fails, I still have my owl dish and owl mug.
Alright, I’m going to go for a walk around my neighborhood then head to job number two. Have a gorgeous day!
