It was a busy afternoon!
Clara was looking a little gloomy (I think she misses her Mommy)…
So I decided to take her for a walk to cheer her up!
She perked up the moment I said “Clara, do you want to go for a walk!?”
The word “walk” alone would’ve done the trick!
We did a slow mile around the block and then I came back to do a nice hour-long session of yoga.
Clara stayed close by me with her toy should I want to take a break and play randomly throughout the session…ha.
The yoga session was good but I think my tolerance for longer yoga sessions is waning. I used to take an hour long class every single week day when I was in college but in my “older age” I’ve found I enjoy the 20-40 minute sessions best.
It’s funny how things like that change. Maybe the busier you get, the more appealing the quicker bursts of exercise become…who knows!
Lunch followed – and it was something I haven’t had in such a long time!
I can’t remember the last time I had one of these…it’s definitely been far too long and I have to say it tasted good!
Into the bowl went:
- Spring mix
- Dr. Praeger’s California Veggie Burger
- Shredded carrots
Topped with red wine vinegar and oil.
On the side I had a bunch of fresh fruit that I picked up from the salad bar at the grocery store:
Grapes > Watermelon > Pineapple > Strawberries > Cantaloupe.
I thought the pineapple would be my favorite but I think I enjoyed the red grapes best!
A terrific lunch.
After lunch I went out to get a quick manicure/pedicure (Chad and I have a wedding to go to this weekend) and then came home to snack…
This orange was WAY too dry. I hate when that happens.
A handful of dry roasted almonds was added for a little more snack satisfaction:
They did the trick!
I munched on them while watching Gilmore Girls:
A couple episodes later, it was time for dinner!
Another favorite that I haven’t had in a while…
Made with turkey, homemade guacamole, salsa, lettuce.
Blue corn chips…
Homemade guac + salsa for dipping:
Deliciously filling and satisfying!
Mom and I are now on the couch getting ready to catch up on last night’s Modern Family.
