I stopped by the side of the road and took pictures of poppies today. Sorry to all of the rest of you in the frozen tundra otherwise known as the US. I hope I'm not the only person in town that took notice of these beauties, but I might be the only person who bothered stopped to take pictures of them....my observational skills are both what make me special and really weird. But flowers in January?? That deserves to be celebrated.
Today was a busy day for me simply because last night I felt inspired to re-evaluate my to-do list system. Therefore I got a lot of tasks done! I decided instead of keeping a big running list of stuff all the time, even if I prioritize the most important thing, I need to maintain blocks of time. I struggle with work and fun bleeding into one another, which is something I've struggled with. I can be a workaholic, grinding away at a task until it's done instead of breaking it up into manageable chunks. Listening to to book Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy on Audible has helped give me tips, especially the fact that if you get your gnarliest task done early on in the day (your frog), then you won't have to worry about it for the rest of the day. But budgeting my time more strictly also helped me a lot today and I'm going to continue it.
Despite all my work, I still got my healthy meals in. They're pretty simple meals, too. Without further ado, here's what I ate Wednesday!
Started the day with my workout, Max Hammer Strength and 10 Minute Ab Hammer, along with a cup of tea with lemon and lots of water.
Breakfast was leftover frittata. The recipe will be posted soon! I also had an orange.
1 red, 1 yellow, 1/2 green, 1/2 tsp, 1 purple, 1 blue
My mid-morning snack was 1 purple of Cuties and 1 orange of pumpkin seeds.
1 purple, 1 orange
Lunch was extremely simple. I use Pyrex glass bowls and divide my leftovers into multiple meals. I have chicken breast (recipe soon to come!), cauliflower, and peas.
1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green, 1 tsp
Mid-afternoon I had a protein pick-me-up with vanilla Shakeology blended with 4 ice cubes and cold decaf coffee. Apparently poppies are the theme of the day...
I was lacking in veggies, so dinner was a huge chopped salad! Baby kale, spinach, and butter lettuce, mixed cherry and grape tomatoes, purple onion, and cucumber. Protein was chicken seasoned with Montreal Chicken Seasoning and paprika. I made some basic roasted sweet potatoes (bonus recipe on Facebook!), and tossed the whole thing together with the last of my teaspoons of oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. My friend Misha got me hooked on just lemon and oil dressing. I love it! While I cooked my chicken, I prepared a soup recipe that'll be on the blog, too! Lots of posts coming your way! Dessert was an apple.
1 red, 1 yellow, 2 1/2 green, 2 1/2 tsp, 1 purple
Throughout the day I had lots of water and decaf green tea. These meals are simple, but your meals don't have to be complex to succeed. What was on your menu today? Comment below!
