Today I’m linking up with Jenn & friends for What I Ate Wednesday, where I share a day’s worth of meals & snacks.
Tuesdays man. Amirite? Really, I have nothing to complain about, but rainy Tuesdays can take it out of you (at least it’s not snow.) Some sun, maybe a change of scenery would be lovely, buuuut I don’t want to be the kind of person who is always wanting and wishing for things or making excuses like “#ICantEvenTuesdayRightNow.” I want to be the person who says “not feeling my best, what small changes can I make to pick myself up?”
A couple weeks ago I talked about changing my workout routine and switching to AM workouts. So far so good! I’m loving the extra time I have in the evenings and the extra sleep I’m getting. Plus, I’ve (finally) started running again which gives me a reason to hop out of bed… ok, hop isn’t the right word… roll maybe? Fall?
Lunch: Tuna Sweet Potato Burger with Tahini over Arugula with Walnuts & Hemp Seeds
Anywhoo, little changes. Finding ways to be present. That’s what I’m striving for. Not perfection. Not a miracle. Not a silver bullet. Yesterday’s dinner was a good example. After a low energy day, I wanted something bright and cheery for dinner and since I haven’t been having as many smoothies for breakfast (because I don’t really eat before the gym) I realized that a smoothie bowl would be a perfect dinner. I loaded it up with bananas, cherries, spinach, kefir, ginger and yeahhh I went a little nuts with the toppings: coconut, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, goji berries and almond butter. It hit the spot.
Hope you’re having a sunny week (even if you have to make your own sunshine.)
