Hello blog world!!! It’s Tuesday, hooray! 🙂
So listen to this cuuurrrr-azzzzy Richmond weather forecast today… going from a low of 38F this morning to 73F by this afternoon?! Ummm that is like 2 seasons packed into one day, crazy no?! However no complaints here, I love me some 70s 🙂
In other news, last night I stumbled across this great Cookinglight.com read about 10 Foods that Sound Healthy but Are NOT… a majority of these I knew already (i.e. certain types of smoothies, energy bars, prepared salads, etc.) however this one caught me by surprise!
- Multigrain & Wheat Breads – many breads labeled “multi-grain” and “wheat” are typically made with refined grains, so you’re not getting the full nutritional benefit of the whole grain. How can you be sure? Read nutrition labels carefully. If the first flour in the ingredient list is refined (it will typically say “bleached” or “unbleached enriched wheat flour”) you are not getting a 100% whole-grain bread.
Learn something new everyday!
Onto lunch, which included leftovers from last night’s superfab din – not as pretty day 2 but definitely just as tasty 🙂
Plus an unseen dark chocolate mini and a peach yogurt from the caf – hey, I was hungry today haha!
Buffet at my cubicle? 😉
This morning has flown by so that has been awesome, stayin’ busy busy! Hopefully this afternoon will be more of the same.
I debated on packing my gym clothes to hit up Cardio3 class after work today, however decided that I was more in the mood for a Yoga.Fitness.Plus sesh with my homegirl Elise from the comforts of home instead 🙂 I need some good stretching after yesterday’s workout plus the crazy toning benefits from this yoga workout is unbeatable!
I am definitely heading to the gym for Kickboxing class thursday though (finally it’s back!!!) and I couldn’t be more excited gahhh! If you don’t know already, I adore kickboxing class so much so that I switched to a flex schedule at work where I’d have every other Friday off so I could make it to the 8:30am friday class at my gym that kicks a$$ — seriously peeps, I did this haha. It’s such a freaking awesome workout, and always varies so you can’t get bored or in a rut!
“Steph’s love for kickboxing” commentary now over. Hahaha
Alright, back to work time it is! Can’t wait to see everyone tonight for some dinner… what’s it gonna be?!!?
The allstar of the game (and no, it’s not an Angels player winning the game in extra innings vs. the Yankees mwuhaha just sayin’ 😉 ): Al fresco All Natural Italian Chicken Sausages (had the Sweet Apple flavor the other night, they were freaking awesome, so excited to try this kind!)
See ya tonight for how it all turns out 🙂
Have a wonderful day bloggies!!
