It’s only Thursday, right? Wednesday was exhausting. It was a tiring day at work and all I could do at night was spend some time working in the garden.
Good gym workout today. I don’t think I see too much in the way of physical changes after 2.5 months on this program, but I am for sure much, much stronger. My posture is much better as well. Of course, if I was better on the food part, I would probably see more results. I have been kind of 70/30 instead of 90/10.
Breakfast upon return was the banana bread pudding topped with coconut butter. The nice thing about drinking a post workout shake is that I am not ready to gnaw my arm off and can wait while this cooks for breakfast.
Work has been super busy of late. Not sure if it is because other people are taking an early holiday or what, but it has made it a little stressful because we are actually getting emails from the company about doing work. Normally we don’t hear too much and they just let us do our thing, but if the clients start yelling, then we get ‘urged’ along. I’ll take the work, though!
Lunch time! Needed to use up this chicken and we had dinner out planned, so lunch it is.
Check out my toes! When I got my hair cut the other day, my stylist gave me a sample bottle of nail polish. I didn’t want to do my fingers as I don’t care for the look of short nails and dark polish, plus I don’t have any polish remover. So, I did my toes! (You can see my sock imprint on the top of my feet-oops).
I did scare myself, though. This morning I got up and walked down the hallway. I looked at my feet and gasped because I had forgotten I did my toes and thought I hurt myself 😳
Quick afternoon snack.
I wouldn’t say this Larabar tasted like a blueberry muffin, but it had dried blueberries in it.
The rest of the day went pretty fast and we were glad to call it a day and head out for dinner. It’s been a hard week. John has been on a winning tear with poker, so I told him he needed to take me out for dinner. We had a coupon for 99 Restaurant, so that is where we headed to.
I love the free popcorn!
I had wanted one of the new lobster dishes. They had a lobster roll or a hot buttered lobster sandwich. However, I had looked up calories online prior to going and the calories were either 1400 or 1600! That’s almost a whole day of calories just for one entree. So, that was off the menu (har har).
Instead, I decided to be totally different and get the balsamic glazed salmon. I was a little skeered as I am newly venturing into fishy fish (I love seafood, though). My plate:
Looks delicious, no? It had grilled asparagus on the side with broccoli. Win-win! I *loved* the grilled asparagus. Must try that at home.
The salmon was very, very good. I really liked it. Not to mention the calories on this dish were 420.
We don’t like to eat at corporate restaurants that much, but I have to say that we are never disappointed at 99, which is why we come back. Prices are very good, service always good and we like the food.
After that, it was a stroll around the mall. Date night includes shopping at Target – how is that for romantic? It was really nice to get out and about, though. Yay!
