Morning! I hope all of you had a great night and morning! I sure did! Since I got into work so early yesterday, I got out at 4:15!!! I walked home and made it home just before the storm hit, perfect timing. When I arrived home, I had an ice cold beer. It was a Michalob Ultra Cactus Lime….so summery!

Adam had to be back to work at 6pm, so I made us a quick dinner. I made some fresh whole wheat raviolis with organic sauce and  tasty summer salad. The salad was baby spinach, watermelon and feta topped with balsamic dressing. It was very simple yet very flavorful. The sweet from the watermelon and the salty from the feta made the salad so delicious! Adam was skeptical at first, but ended up really liking it.

It was a delicious light summer meal! I spent the rest of the evening hanging out with my friend Jill, we had a few Raspberry and Lime Mich Ultras, I am loving these beers right now, so refreshing! We were so excited to watch the premiere of BostonMed. While watching we snacked on some hot blue corn chips and hot salsa.

The show was great! It was interesting and exciting. It was also super emotional- I cried throughout the whole thing! I am excited to watch it next week. If you missed it, I would try to check it out next week if you can. It is really good!

Last night once Jill left, I got ready for bed and passed out. Being up since 5:15 am make me exhausted. This morning I slept in until 9am. I spent a little while checking my e-mail and cleaning up a little. Around 10 am, I put on the coffee and made some breakfast. I was craving french toast. I used two egg whites, a little cinnamon, organic fat free milk and vanilla extract and dipped two pieces of whole wheat bread in it and browned them on either side. I topped when with a little natural maple syrup, blueberries, strawberries and cinnamon. On the side I had some coffee with agave nectar and creamer.

I don’t have any big plans today, I am going to get in a run, pick up our marriage license do Body Pump this evening. I am hoping to find some other fun things to do since it is so nice out! We shall see 🙂

5 Favorite Things

Hello everyone! How are you guys doing? I am well! Today is my Friday, so that is exciting news! 🙂 This week has been so busy I am ready to wrind down a little bit, for sure!

Yesterday after work, I headed to my part-time job for a meeting. When I got there I realized the AC was not on and it was about 90 degrees. It was a miserable sweaty hour and 20 minutes that I was there. In that time I somehow managed to loose my keys, I think the heat made me delirious! By the time I left there and got home it was 7:30 pm. After being a power house of productivity and having a very long day, a run seemed unappealing! So I didn’t go.

I went to talk to my mom about my wedding stuff and pick up my little pup. My mom told me earlier on the phone that she had a surprise for me and I was eager and excited to see that it was. When I got there, she surprised me with the most adorable Tory Burch flats!!!Here is a picture of the exact ones:I LOVE THEM!!!!!

Dinner needed to be something quick, I was so hungry! When I went to take picture I realized I left my camera at work 😦 FAIL! But I made do with the iphone, not the best quality, but at least you get some pictures right? I took this bad boy out of the freezer and heated it up 🙂

While it was cooking I steamed some edamame.

I really, really love eating edamame out of the pod! Isn’t it so fun?!

I headed to bed early this last night because I had a 5:15 am wake up call!I was wiped out from a busy day and passed right out. I slept like a baby and actually felt great when the alarm went off! I hopped out of bed, put on my workout clothes and headed to Healthworks Beach Body Bootcamp. While on my way there I snacked on a banana.

Like Oscar’s bed in the background that he NEVER sleeps in? 😉

Bootcamp was fun today! There were a lot of different drills, sprints and TONS of ab work, which felt great. It was hot and muggy, but I still felt fantastic. I was a sweaty, dirty mess after and hopped right into the shower and got ready for work. On the way into work,  I stopped at Starbucks and got a turkey bacon, egg white sandwich on a whole wheat English muffin.

I also had a grande skinny vanilla latte (hello, yummy!), but I deleted the phone picture by accident. It was probably not great anyhow!

I got to work by 7:30 am this morning! HOLY COW! I think this is the earliest I have ever been at work. It was nice to be alone for a while! I got a lot done! Around 10 am I broke into my snack. I had some leftover edamame from last night! It was fun to eat 🙂

Clearly, by this point I was reunited with my camera!

Lunch came around 12pm while working! I had a leftover turkey burger from Tuesday night’s dinner with laughing cow cheese on whole wheat bun with some salad.

It hit the spot!
