How Can I Make This Work?

I mentioned yesterday how I already managed to use my rest day. And then once again, I did not get up to workout this morning. Awesome.

Back up plan was to go home and complete my strength training after work. I came SO close to skipping out again. Then I remembered how much I love TV (I know, I should be embarrassed to admit that, but I just do) and how I hadn’t watched my favorite show yet, Biggest Loser. What’s better than working out while watching Biggest Loser? 🙂

I followed another one of the circuit workouts from Peanut Butter Fingers and it took me about 25 minutes. Those burpees are a killer!

Since I had already eaten most of my points allowance for the day, without a longer term workout I decided to keep dinner pretty light. I boiled a serving of soba noodles in vegetable broth and added slivered red pepper, shredded kale, garlic and fresh cilantro to the soup.  I added some heat with a pinch of crushed red chili pepper and Sriracha sauce. Nothing better than a large bowl of noodle soup on a freeeeeeeeeeeezing night.

I know you’ve been on the edge of your seats waiting for this week’s salad brigade. Are you ready???

Let’s get a close up of those chickpeas!

I spotted this recipe from Oh She Glows and knew I would be a fan. Rather than eating in a wrap form I added each serving to romaine and spinach greens.

Not only did I have a salad of the week, but also a special breakfast from Skinny Taste. Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Bananas

I was skeptical of one serving keeping me full until lunch, but I haven’t been hungry any day this week so far before lunchtime. Pretty impressive.

Okay, onto finding a treadmill workout for tomorrow morning that might help me hate the treadmill a little less. Have a great night!
