Whew! So glad this week has finally come to a close. What a rollercoaster!
This morning I hoped to get up early, but the sleep felt so good I gave in. I feel like I've been really good with my workouts this week, so today is going to be my day off. I'm planning on getting in my workout time on Saturday & Sunday though for sure!
Tonight we have my friend Brian's going away party in Boulder. He's a friend that I knew in Ohio that moved out to Colorado maybe 5 or 6 years ago. He's moving to Boston now though to live with his girlfriend - and will be missed! I am being the designated driver this evening, since I'm not drinking - I have 5 people riding in my car down there tonight! Ha! It was funny though - I was talking to Stacey yesterday about going to parties & not drinking. To be honest, it's not that bad - and I kind of like it better than drinking! A couple of reasons:
1.) You don't end up ready to crash at 11:30. Alcohol makes you tired. Der.
2.) You end up having more engaging conversations. Even if the other person is drinking I find it much easier to hold up my end of the conversation, and I listen better! Time is much better spent w/ friends.
3.) You get to drive yourself home at the end of the night. Awesome! And it's nice being a back-up DD if you have a friend that needs a ride. Yeah, maybe it can seem like a burden having to go out of your way, but it's nice knowing that they got home safely because of you, right?
4.) You don't have a hangover the next day!!5.) You don't have to worry about cleaning your barf off your friend's car.... (yep, that's what I get for being DD! Ha!)
Powerball w/ a banana, cup of black coffee (I couldn't resist today! When I like somethin' - I keep eating it 'till I'm sick of it!)
Salad (romaine lettuce, quinoa, red onion, tomato, seitan pan seared w/ spray oil, papaya poppyseed dressing). I later added on some of the leftover quinoa, asparagus, mushrooms, and tofu from yesterday's lunch too - just so it didn't go to waste. I forgot it was still in the fridge at work! :)
Apple (sliced) with natural (no salt or sugar-added) peanut butter
Here's something I did NOT eat!!
I'm so proud of myself... I LOVE German chocolate cake too...*drool*. It was a girl's birthday at work, and another girl's 5-year anniversary. I took a picture just so that I could say that I resisted temptation! I'm saving my indulging for tomorrow. ;) WOOT!
Quorn "chicken" patty (pan-fried) with organic instant mashed potatoes, topped with a pat of vegan butter, a pat of vegan mayo, and some hot sauce. Side of Kale chips.
None - takin' a break today. But lookout weekend!! ;)
