When Wednesday Feels Like Tuesday

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday! So, I went through most of the morning thinking today was Tuesday until a reminder popped up for a weekly status call I have with one of my clients. On Wednesday. Ever since that realization, I’ve felt slightly thrown off but tomorrow is Thursday and we are one day closer to the weekend so I’ll take it!

I’ve been getting into work a little bit earlier than usual and taking advantage of the extra 30 minutes of complete silence to knock out a ton of work. I got in this morning and, as always, had breakfast at my desk while going through my neverending inbox.

Plain greek yogurt, honey, cinnamon and a huge banana with nutty caramel coffee on the side.

I’m much more productive in the morning and have been trying to decide if I want to channel that productivity into early morning workouts or into an earlier work day. I actually love early morning workouts but I just haven’t been making it to the gym in the morning lately. Waking up isn’t an issue for me and the more I think about it, the more I need to start pushing myself to just get up and get to the gym in the morning. Some nights I don’t get home until after 7 if I workout after work and I’d love to have a few extra hours of free time at night! Okay, rant over.

Lunch was eaten while prepping for another call with a client. I made a quinoa stir-fry last night with all kinds of veggies and made extra to bring to work today. I have this weird love/hate relationship with quinoa. It’s so easy to make but I definitely have to be in the mood for it.

I managed to get out of work right on time and headed over to the gym for a quick 2 mile run. I know I’ve said this before but I am so, so happy with running lately. I just feel really strong and am excited to officially kick off half marathon training on Monday! I followed it up with 10 minutes on the stairmaster and 10 minutes on the bike. My version of leg day! ;)

After the gym, Nick and I took Bentley for a nice long walk around our community and came home to tag team dinner. Nick grilled chicken while I made a summery salad. We had romaine, cucumber, carrot, strawberries, avocado, feta and grilled chicken. This was one of the best salads we’ve made yet!

I’m off to read and lounge around with Bentley and Nick. I really, really want to make it to the 5:45 BodyPump class tomorrow morning which means I need to be asleep by 10. Fingers crossed!

What are your thoughts on quinoa? Love it, hate it, or indifferent?
