Not a bad day yesterday, aside from not working out. There just wasn’t time, really. Which is okay, I’ll consider it my rest day. I tried to be more careful about what I ate to make up for the fact that I wasn’t working out and I think I did okay.
I had some blueberries after breakfast – my work desk with the necessities – coffee, fruit, water, and a cute picture of Brooke 🙂
I tried to duplicate Christophers Tarragon Chicken Salad – big fail. Tastes nothing like it. They must put magic in theirs.
Dinner at The Blue Goat was great! I ordered the Blue Bird: Grilled chicken, avocado, bacon, sriracha aioli, pear habanero jam, blue cheese – but without bread and no blue cheese. It came with cole slaw on the side. It was really, really good. The habanero jam was awesome, spicy and sweet, very good compliment to the chicken. And you can’t go wrong with Sririacha in any form.
So yesterday when I picked Brooke up from daycare, she was sitting in the floor playing with a ball and her friend. I walked in and she saw me, got this gigantic grin on her face, and got on her belly and made her way for me. She got to my ankles, smiling the whole way, and wanted me to pick her up. It was the first time she had done that and it made my heart smile SO big, I just loved it! I told her she was welcome to do that anytime she wanted 🙂
My sweet girl…I just love her.
and my, oh my, does she love her daddy. <3
I’m trying not to drink much anymore, mainly because of the empty calories, and the fact that I have a hard enough time losing weight as it is, and alcohol really doesn’t help the situation, but I splurged last night at girls night and had a beer – Smartmouth Amber from Norfolk – it was really good! I hate nothing more than when I decide to drink alcohol (especially out at a restaurant) and end up not loving what I ordered – such a waste! I really want to enjoy it if I’m spending the calories on it, so last night was a win!
lovely ladies at dinner!
I will be going to Crossfit today and it should be a good one! Brooke also has to go back to the Dr today to get her shots, so fingers crossed that she does well with that!
