Quick Post

Hey everyone! I'm super exhausted tonight so this is gonna be a quick post. Yesterday I ended up doing a double training session. That's an hour and a half of fun :) I was a little concerned at first but it went really well and I felt great after! Today, is another story, ha! I am very sore because we spent some time doing weight lifting which we don't do often... we mostly do body weight exercises. I know it worked because I'm sore in every muscle I used yesterday :) I randomly woke up at 4:00 am today and couldn't fall back asleep so I'm being plagued by fatigue. It took every ounce of energy and motivation in my body to get to the gym and do some cardio today. Only 30 minutes but it was more than enough.

Had some good meals today. Haven't had much of an appetite over the past few days so I'm doing the best I can. No dinner yet but check out the grub so far.

Breakfast was a slice of GF toast with a half of an avocado and 2 clementines.

Apple for midmorning snack.

Leftover Thai Food from last night. Spicy basil eggplant with tofu added in. I had about 5 bites last night and couldn't eat anymore so I just put the leftovers in a pan with some rice and reheated them. I don't know about you but I prefer to leave my stir fry in the pan for a long time to make it crispy. The rice had the same crunchy texture as the bottom of a paella, it was SO GOOD. I was going to add broccoli for more veggies but knew this was more that enough food for me so I decided against it. Forgot to ask for brown rice so had to go with the white rice but I'm fine with it considering I only eat white rice about twice a year.

OK, sorry for the short probably incoherent post but I'm going to go relax for a bit. No appetite for dinner but hopefully some inspiration will hit.  I have to work for a few hours tomorrow morning in the studio after I work out but then I have the rest of the weekend free! Yay!

Happy Friday everyone!


  1. You're killing it on the training! I'm so impressed!

    That Thai dish looks really good. Makes me want to get Thai for dinner tonight.... I've got to try avocado on toast for breakfast. What a great idea!

  2. That's all you ate today? Delilah needs her Aunt VaVa to be soft and huggable. Not stiff and boney.

  3. Thanks Molly! Too bad I can barely move today :X The thai food was really good and def try the avocado on toast! A little sea salt and black pepper and it is perfect!

    Shen - Ha! That's all I ate when I posted it but I ate a protein bar and then some dinner after. I just knew I'd be too tired and lazy to take pics. And no worries, I'm plenty squishy for the little babycakes :) Trying to be a little less squishy but in a healthy way which is why I'm using the app.

  4. Happy Friday. Sounds like you're really going for it. I had a similar thing happen to me on Wed; I got loads of exercise and felt great, but yesterday I was took it a little easy.

    All the food looks really tasty...spicy basil eggplant: yum!

  5. Woot! Woot! Great job at the gym! I bet it's a "good" kind of sore: stretch, stretch, stretch and lots of water (but you probably know that). I did a sprint after work today - but apparently speed and 33 degrees equals fits of coughing. My kind of "sore" is the "still numb" kind - no bueno!

    It all looks super yummy. :)

  6. Things have been hectic with me too, although it looks like you are eating a lot healthier then I am. :)

  7. Eggplants and tofu look good :-)


  8. Rose - Thanks! I recently had the epiphany that it really is just a waste of time to go to the gym if you aren't going to take it seriously so I'm just doing the best I can to make the most of my time :) I feel a lot more satisfied after a good workout.

    Ingrid - Thanks! It was definitely the good sore, as I'm feeling today too! Running in the cold is so brutal on one hand but great on the other because when my legs go numb I can get further :X

    Vic - I think you are doing just fine with your eating! Your meals look so good and you are definitely way busier than I am :)

    Get Skinny - Whole Foods always has the BEST avocados! To think I only recently started to like them! SO many wasted years!

    Alessandra - Thanks! It was a really delicious meal. I love Thai eggplant dishes!
