WIAW #30 – Pilates and Protein

Since my legs have been a little under the weather, I wasn’t too sure what my exercise would be for the day.  I’m one of those people who if I don’t get up and do something, the rest of the day just becomes a mess.  Strange, I know.  Well, I decided to make a trip to the gym, buy a day-class pass to pilates and do a little core work and stretching.  Good decision.

At this point, my tummy was starting to rumble and it was time to start my WIAW bonanza!
Breakfast/brunch essentially (based on the time) was a chocolate banana green smoothie (insert SPINACH), some peanut butter and celery, and a handful of granola.

This was the granola I attempted to make earlier in the week.  It’s alright but I must have had the oven on too high as it began to char.  Funny how that works because the oven definitely destroyed my nutella brownies too.  Oh well.

I’ve picked up on Theresa’s brilliant idea of #lululunches.  Today’s (and pretty much every day this week) consisted of my pre-made taco salad meals created on Sunday evening.  I simply chopped up some chicken breasts, cooked it in a packet of Lawry’s Taco seasoning, threw in some black beans, tomatoes, avocado, lettuce, and paired it with a bag of carrots and celery.  Attended my business capstone (senior thesis) class, puttered around a bit more, then had dinner and went to see Argo.  I had seen this movie awhile ago, pretty much when it first came out, but my friend Katie had never seen it, so why not?

Dinner = wheat couscous & cheese, chicken sausage, zucchini, and onion with a heaping side of watermelon 🙂

I ended Monday night watching Hulu, in particular a show/discussion with the cast of HBO’s The Newsroom.  MY.FAVORITE.SUMMER.SHOW.EVER.  If I had the guts or actually ability to live that life, that would be uhmazing. Oh and even better, my parents were able to snatch last minute seats to this! So fantastic 🙂

Oh my goodness, you know what I forgot? March = St. Patty’s DAY! Basically the opportunity to turn anything and EVERYTHING GREEN!  Last year I was lucky enough to visit some of my grandparent’s friends in Capitola and they treated us to a full-on St. Patrick’s Day meal with corned beef and hash.  This year may not be as lucky, depending on who is around for the oh-so-fun meal, but I’ll try my best to make it festive.  There will certainly be a lot of green 🙂 IMG_0872

Jenn encouraged us to share some of our favorite veggies. I’m pretty open to trying new things (except mushrooms and olives) but hmmmm, some of my favorite veggies include: sweet potato, squash (def wasn’t as a kid…fun stories about that), asparagus, artichoke, green beans, and eggplant!
