Monday was a Thai lunch date where I had….wait for it….tofu green curry! I had a quick protein shake after my workout, and a tofu taco salad for dinner – sparse on the tofu since my brat children barely left me any. I guess that’s a good problem to have!
Yesterday was tea, spicy tofu soup with bell peppers, onions, green beans, and cauliflower rice. Dinner was a family dinner out. R and I split an order of edamame, and I also grabbed a side salad. Though to be fair, the side salad was pretty big. Though I forgot a pic of it.
Gym both Monday and Tuesday.
I really do love this HIIT program. Monday was full body + abs. Yesterday was chest + triceps. Today – everything is sore! In the HIIT room, they have a board where they post the week. Every day rotates each week, so if you never workout on Friday’s (which is my scheduled day off since I usually have Friday evening plans), I may miss plyometrics this week, but next week it could be legs and shoulders. That way, you’re never unbalanced. Though I hate plyometrics, so I’m not sad to miss it this week!
There’s always a warm up and cool down. And what they don’t show is the reps, the laps, and the times. For this month, the goal is endurance, so it’s 3 reps and 1 lap (there are 15 exercises). You work for 55 seconds, and then rest for 20. Last month was power, where exercises were 35 seconds and rest was 25. I have to say, I love the way it changes up every day and then again every month – can’t get bored that way.
Oh, and both days I got my locker 139 back 😏
Monday was low key at work. Meaning no meetings other than an impromptu call with a friend from another health system.
I left the office and went to the gym. Got home, showered, and made dinner. Then R and I went over to the library where we ran into an old friend S and her son. Of course I’m in my pajamas, but that wasn’t a big deal. S and I used to hit the bars in pajamas!
Tuesday I worked from home because I had a car appointment in the middle of the day. I don’t live that close to work, and I’d have lost more time driving back and forth than just working at home.
While I was waiting for my car, I was reading the news. Saw that there was snow in Charlottesville. I happen to be heading there in a few weeks and was texting my girlfriend who lives there.
My eldest and I picked R up from robotics at 5, and then headed to meet M, my boyfriend, and his boys for dinner. It was a nice time, as always.
But guess what I did?! I ordered my first whiskey drink ever! And you know what? It was good! My best friend and her husband were very pleased with me 🙂
Today I’m off. I have a bunch of appointments, so just took a vacation day to get it all done. Dentist, surgeon post op check, and letting Raven play with my hair 🙂
