Here’s to another start of the work/school week :).
I set my alarm for 5:45 this morning in order to see if I was feeling any better and to base my decision on the gym off of that. Well, I woke up starving, yep, my appetite is back folks! I immediately went into the kitchen and smeared a big spoonful of almond butter on some bread. The ‘snack’ was gone in a matter of seconds. Then, off to the gym I went.
I took it ‘easy’ at the gym this morning due to having felt a little off the past few days. I think my body needs a little bit of a break and needs to slowly get back into the swing of things. I did: 4.5 miles in 45 minutes on the treadmill. I also did a 10 minute cool-down walk as well.
Now I am at work, sitting in my cube, about to make my breakfast in our kitchen. Here is what we got:
Cracklin’ Oat Bran
This stuff is really packin’ in the protein. I love it.
Lunch is, you guessed it, leftovers from last night. I probably will even eat this cold. I love cold leftover pasta. Anybody else?
And an apple. I need to eat up these small braberns before I dig into my Honeycrisps.
For snack this afternoon, I packed a PB&J Larabar!! I can’t even contain my excitement. Have you tried this flavor yet?
When I was walking to work, I was reading Jenna’s post this morning on my phone. If you haven’t read it, you definitely should. I talks about following your passion and doing what you really want to be doing, not what makes the most money, is the most glamorous, etc.
I am sure I will be sitting in my cube today wondering if I am really living my dream. I love marketing, and someday want to be a product manager for, what else, other than a food company ;).
I also love food and cooking though. Hmmm… It is something to at least think about. However, I think I need to look into how I can incorporate those two interests into more of a ‘second job’ or activity outside of work to fulfill my passions.
Two questions for you today:
Are you living your passion?
What is your favorite kind of apple?
