I stayed up way past my bed time last night, trying to make some vacation plans. I thought this post on my recent beer adventures would keep you entertained, but apparently you’re not beer fans?? 😕 Anyways, back to vacation plans… the last vacation Adam and I took was in October, and the one before that was a year ago. We are definitely overdue for one! We started with planning a trip to San Francisco, realized our miles cannot be used for a trip this soon, and switched gears (we’ll go to San Fran in the summer instead). How nice would it be to just relax on the beach with nothing else to do? I don’t remember the last time we did this. Maybe never. The sound of a Caribbean vacation seemed more and more appealing as we did more research… except it’s expensive! At the end, more research needs to be done so we can find a good deal, but I cannot wait. A Caribbean vacation may also just be the kick in the butt that I need to get back on the healthy eating wagon. The new kitchen is helping with that as well. 😉 I’ll keep you guys posted.
TJ’s organic moral fiber blueberry muffin + coffee
Those clementines in the box in the back were calling my name, so I finished breakfast with one
Lunch was SO good! I go home for lunch on Mondays… love that! I just threw a bunch of frozen and fresh veggies + cooked wild rice + shrimp in the wok and voila – delicious lunch!
Stir fry with cauliflower, broccoli, red pepper, carrots, wild rice, shrimp with Jenna’s sesame sauce + sesame seeds
Yes, it tasted as good as it looked 😀
+ another clementine
I am once again obsessed with KIND bars. I need to stock up. These bars are a little too sweet but the whole nuts are the best. This bar had whole almonds and macademia nuts. I’m nuts for nuts! 😆
I went back to one of my favorite classes at the gym after work – Rack it Up. It’s basically Body Pump/Group Power with a different name, and I LOVE this class. It’s been forever since I’ve been but I was able to lift the same weight as before (surprised myself actually!). The only thing was my legs. I used to lift 53lbs (includes 3lbs for the weight of the bar), but yesterday 33lbs almost instantly gave me leg cramps. I went down to 28 for the lunges track and still my legs were shacking. I hope I can run today! Anyways, I felt super strong and find these types of classes very inspiring. The guy next to me said he loves when I come because I can lift more than any of the guys (that included him, btw). Haha, love that! 😆
Leftover turkey, mushroom, spinach and cheese lasagna. Still awesome!
LATE NIGHT SNACKING
Oops, another one caught mid-bite
+ an orange and a zbar. I’m going to try to start “closing the kitchen” after dinner + dessert (if I need it). All these snacks add up!
Where would you go on quick vacation if you had a few days to kill?
