Hi All –
Hope you all had a good day back to work, for those of you who do that sort of thing 🙂 I actually felt well rested this morning as I got ready to head out to the train this morning! I was so happy to have my breakfast and lunch already packed from last night, it was such a time saver. I also had all of my clothes picked out for work today which was a huge help.
I drank my iced coffee with chocolate soy milk while on the train this morning. When I got in to South Station I was the third person off of my train car and I discovered a short cut out of South Station that leads me right to the bus stop to get to my office. Sweet! And then I waited (well over) a few minutes for my bus to come… you have got to love the post Labor Day traffic. It makes all commutes longer – even when you are not actually driving!
I got to work at 8:30 this morning and dug into my over night oats with fruit right away – I was starving! I had a to go pack of Barney Butter which was awesome on the oats and fruit, it really made breakfast perfect!
I survived until 12:15 for lunch. I loved my leftover eggplant parm, with a few whole wheat pastas and a can of Polar seltzer, which was really satisfying.
One of our art conservators is recently back from a trip to Moscow. She brought my colleagues and I a great “bar” of chocolate which we were able to enjoy today as an after lunch snack.
Wow – this was so interesting and fantastic. It was a ‘bitter’ chocolate, but the bitterness was not overwhelming. There are air bubbles locked into the chocolate which makes you feel like the chocolate dissolves right in your mouth.
I had three or four pieces of the chocolate through out the day! It was soooo good. At three o’clock I needed an apple to get me through until the end of the day. I did not realize it was actually going to get me through until 8 o’clock tonight!
I walked to South Station from the office which is 1.2 miles. It was a really nice walk today because it was sort of cool and still sunny this afternoon. I was home a few minutes before seven this evening and somehow I had enough energy to get my butt to the gym. I was not there for long, just long enough to run 2.2 miles in just over twenty minutes. It was not a stellar day – but I covered 3.4 miles, so not too bad for the first day back into the exercise groove. 🙂
After the run I popped by East Side Market to get a bunch of spinach and a tomato to incorporate into my dinner. Before doing the food shopping I enjoyed a few peanuts to keep me going until I got home to make dinner.
I had a large salad, 1/3 cup of brown rice, and half of a salmon burger. It was a fairly colorful meal!
Well, that about wraps up the day. I’ve got to get back into the kitchen to pack everything up for tomorrow. See ya’ll tomorrow!
One thought on “Tuesday: Work, run, salad”
We bought chocolate like that in Brighton Beach last time we were in NYC – it’s pretty yummy!
