Yeah yesterday was sloooooow going but I eventually made it to the gym and felt a million times better after workin’ up a sweat!
Don’t you love it when you have the entire room to yourself?
I don’t crave salads often but after eating crap before and during the Dave Matthews concert Sunday night I decided I’d make an effort to eat healthier. So I hit up S&S and stocked up on ingredients to make salads for the week. In the mix: mixed greens, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, canned corn (looooove), broccoli, rotisserie chicken, crumbled feta cheese and ranch yogurt dressing.
I even splurged and bought the prepared chicken and it was so worth it! 😀 $7.99 for a chicken that can be added to 4-5 salads isn’t that bad, right?
And in case you’re looking for a new dressing this ranch yogurt one was delicious!
Later in the afternoon, I picked up a couple iced coffee’s (and really good chocolate chunk cookies – it’s a good thing Mike doesn’t read my blog since I ate his cookie), met up with Mike and headed downtown to watch the movie, Lincoln.
For some reason I thought I could handle a movie @ 4:30 but as soon as we sat down my eyes got heavy and I slowly nodded off. And after 20 minutes of power napping, I was back at and stayed awake for the rest of the show. I’m sure it was a great movie – I was just too tired to focus…… Does anyone else fall asleep during movies? Like every time?
But it’s all good because at least I had a second wind and was able to stay up for the PATRIOTS game!

Btw, I found this article that discusses a dilemma I face on a weekly basis:
Sleep vs. Exercise??
Do you opt for more sleep?
Or do you get up to exercise no matter what?
-It depends for me – I usually have a hard time sleeping in and I always have more energy after a good workout so I might prefer exercise over sleep…. but if I’m exhausted then I’ll stay in bed and just push it harder during my next workout.
