Workout Wednesday: Finding Time

Vegan Goodness:

Today we ate the following.

  • Breakfast: Smoothies and bowls of cheerios with strawberries for everyone!  Mom and LP also shared some toast with peanut butter
  • Lunch: Lentil soup for Dad and LP, and a bagel with tofutti for Mom who was out meeting a friend.  Mom finished off our coleslaw left from our neighborhood BBQ.
  • LP had some crackers with almond butter after his nap
  • Dinner: Peanut Penne from Vegan on the Cheap.  It was great!  I substituted cabbage and bell peppers for broccoli since that is what we had on hand.
  • Mom and Dad had some chocolate covered almonds for dessert.

Money Matters:
Today we spent the following:

  • $30.00 for our CSA box.
  • $5.00 for tea and a bagel for Mom who was out with friends
  • $4.00 for parking at Mom’s dr. appointment
  • $5.00 for a living social deal for a $10 Starbucks gift card
  • $35.63 for gas
  • $207.22 at Costco (we finally bought LP his twin mattress!  Tomorrow he will be all set up in his new room.

Workout Wednesday

After a busy weekend, an early morning Monday and a rough Monday night I hadn’t worked out since last Thursday.  I finally got back to it today and it felt great!  All I did was my three circuits although I upped the reps a bit.  After having almost a week away I forgot how much better I feel when I work out.  I felt more energized and more awake today that I have in a while, and I didn’t even get my caffeine until noon!  Having this feeling today reminded me of one of the reasons I need to make working out a priority.  Too often I put it off or skip a workout all together because I’m so tired.  It makes sense that I’m tired – I have a baby that wakes up at night, sometimes more than is really necessary.  But I think I will actually feel more awake and more “together” if I get that workout in, even if it has to be a bit abbreviated.
