Hey everyone! Happy Saturday! It was so beautiful today and I'm so glad I got to enjoy the gorgeous weather! I woke up early and started off my day with an 8am training session. I don't normally train on Saturdays but I added on a bonus session this week because I've been feeling amazing and I thought a bonus session (4th session for the week, 3rd day in a row this time!) would really be a great way to start off my day. It felt amazing, nothing like a great session to get the blood pumping early in the morning.
After the gym I came home and had some coffee along with breakfast.
I had a slice of my Carrot Spice Oat Bread with the Peach Amande yogurt. Truth be told I wasn't a big fan of the peach flavor of this yogurt...didn't even finish the serving. So far, strawberry flavor is in, peach is out. It was still a great breakfast! The Oat bread stayed soft and the flavor is just so amazing. To be honest I may try to make it without white sugar next time. It has plenty of sweetness between the maple syrup, banana, carrots and raisins.
A few hours later I wanted a snack to hold me over so I decided to have a few 5 grain gluten free rosemary and garlic crackers with a half of an avocado. You better believe that avocado ended up on the crackers and it was really good and a super satisfying snack.
Then my friend and I headed over to the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn. We just hung out and walked around and had a really nice day together :) We found a small farmer's market but it was closing up so they didn't have much out. Oh well.
Sorry for the horrible pic. I ate about a third of this plate of tofu, broccoli, and eggplant with garlic sauce. I didn't take my own advice and it was just heavy and greasy. I also knew what was coming up so I didn't want to fill up on this.
And why would I waste my appetite on that when I can be eating THIS!!!! We detoured to Stogo in NYC and I am SO glad we did. My mission was pumpkin pie ice cream and I had my pumpkin pie ice cream. It. Was. Amazing. I got a small cup with half pumpkin pie and half chocolate chip cookie ice cream. It was so good and it made every minute of my workout this morning even more worth it. I don't treat myself to decadent desserts often but when I do I make sure it is worth it :)
I hope you all enjoyed your Saturday! I am going to rest up now because I am working a wedding tomorrow. Before I go I just wanted to remind you that if you haven't voted in my holiday baking bracket, please do so before midnight tomorrow! I'll post the results next week and we'll move on the the final vote for the four treats I'll bake this holiday season!
