Just Another Day

Good morning friends!

So I recently switched from (attempting) to get my workouts in at night after work and on weekends to committing to going to the gym in the morning during the week and just doing activities I enjoy on the weekend. It takes a lot of pressure off of trying to fit in a workout on the weekend when I have so much other stuff going on and takes a lot of the battle out of working out during the week because getting it done in the morning means not having to choose between working out and spending time with the boy and my friends. So far it has been working out really well and I have only skipped a few workouts in the morning here and there over the last month.

This morning's workout was a speed workout on the treadmill. This has actually become my ritual Thursday workout. I did a speedy 4 miles and then called it quits. Breakfast was oatmeal (which I promise I did not take a picture of and will not post for you because if I see another picture of oatmeal in the blogworld I will scream). My morning snack was my usual banana. I sometimes miss the creativity I had when I was younger. I have pretty much the same three breakfasts over and over again and a banana for a mid morning snack just about every day. Oh well, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

As I mentioned on Tuesday, I went to Sip Cafe on Monday and got the roasted chicken sandwich, but it didn't have a lot of avocado on it. Now THIS is how you do avocado on a sandwich:

Please excuse my less than stellar phone picture. This was homemade in my own kitchen of restaurant would give you this much avocado without paying extra for it. Also in my avocado sandwich is some turkey and spinach, but we all know who the real star is.


A pair and some green beans. Not very interesting, but hey, it was nutritious! Unpictured snacks yesterday were some veggie chips and a banana.

Dinner was originally supposed to be a salad on my own because the boy was supposed to work late, but he ended up getting out early, so we decided to hit up Franco's for pizza and beer. Root beer that is. Franco's makes their own and it's pretty good. I love homemade rootbeer.

We split a large pizza, with feta and garlic on my side and hamburger on his.

I didn't love my half. I only had one and a half slices and then called it quits. The garlic in the pizza was in huge chunks and while I LOVE garlic, I don't love biting into huge chunks of it unexpectedly. On the walk home we each grabbed a peppermint stick ice cream cone. It was the perfect temperature for a little stroll.

If you follow me on Twitter or are my friend on Facebook, you may already know that I got hit on  by a 75 year old man the other day. Well, last night I got hit on by a 5 year old. Yep, he asked me to be his girlfriend. Apparently I have some sort of sign that says I am single and desperate and if you have trouble going to the bathroom on your own, I am INTERESTED. How depressing.

Have you ever received unwanted advances?? What's your go to snack that you always eat?


  1. My go to snack lately has been raw cashews with an asain pear or plain greek yogurt with apples and cinnamon.

  2. A 5 year old boy recently invited me to sit with him at a cafe and play with his toy trucks - I was flattered! I don't have a go-to snack, I should get one. I've been eating a green apple every day with lunch.

  3. I just switched to morning workouts too. It sucks, but what are you gonna do.

    Weird guys occasionally try to talk to me. For the most part, though, I think the wedding ring and perma-scowl on my face keeps them at bay.

  4. Thank you for not taking a picture of your oatmeal. We all appreciate it.

  5. I always feel so much better when I work out in the am!

    My favorite snack right now is string cheese and an apple.

  6. My go-to snack has been apples lately. Talk about portable! I wish oranges were portable though - am loving them this summer.

  7. Early morning workouts are the best idea ever. That way, nothing gets in the way of a workout.

    Creepy old guys talk to me all the time. Also, complete strangers always touch me for some reason. It's annoying as hell. Some jerk at the post office poked me in the back last week to make a comment on my shirt. WTF is your problem? Who goes around POKING STRANGERS IN THE BACK?

  8. i definitely put the same amount of avocado on my turkey sammy. yea for avocado!

  9. A seemingly gay man commented on my watch while we were waiting for the train on Wednesday. Then he grabbed my wrist and held on to it for an extended period of time while "looking at the watch". I hope he was in fact gay, otherwise it was just creepy.
    I love avocado on a sandiwch. Sometimes I just do bread and avocado and I'm good to go.

  10. That sandwich looks so good to me right now. I love avocado.

    Sorry about the garlic chunks. It sounds nasty.

    There's a homeless man that hangs out by my work that hits on me every other day. He yells things like, "Girl you be killin em!" and "Holla at me baby!" I'm not that desperate...not yet.

  11. I love the early morning workout too, once I can get myself in the habit of doing it! As for my go-to snacks? Nut butter on a toasted sandwich thin! Works every time!

  12. That pizza looks amazing! I love raw green beans as a snack!

  13. I wish I could be an AM work out girl but just can't do it. Maybe once I have no job that will change?

    Huge bummer about the pizza! It looks so yummy and while I love garlic, I would have been absolutely grossed out by biting into a garlic chunk.

  14. you can haas avocado! i can haas too! haha i love it :)

    my go to snack...fruit. copious amounts of fruit. probably to the point where its no longer good for you.
