Positive ‘tude: Round 3

First, I want to report that even though I went in with a gung-ho positive attitude, my Tuesday turned out just like my no good Monday! Haha… I felt the megastress throughout the day and left the office a little pouty, I must admit.

Even though it’s a rainy morning out, and first thing leaving my apartment to walk down to the truck, AND my umbrella broke (damn!) it’s another new day. Positive attitude round 3 is commencing now. I figure it can hopefully just get better at this point 😉

Okay, okay – enough with the Debbie Downer, promise.

When I got to the office (early) to start the day out right, I had some cinnamon oatmeal with sliced bananas.

Yesterday I did eat some subway for lunch. It’s been a while. I didnt really have much of an appetite so I headed out for lunch late in the afternoon just to make sure I had something in my stomach. I opted for something semi-plain since any cravings seemed nonexistent.

A 6 inch turkey on wheat with lettuce, spinach, tomato, and mustard (apparently a lot of mustard?) did the trick.

After work, I managed to slip off to group training which was a fabulous release. My trainer mentioned that I seemed particularly tense. I’m tellin ya, he knows everything.

Anyway, we did some squat rows using the TRX straps (looking similar to picture below). We also did wall sits with a medicine ball overhead chop which was exhausting, and a kettle ball swing. Those three stuck out to me the most because they were definitely the most challenging!

The kettle bell swings looked something like this:

“Pop the hips.” By the end of the session, my hips were all popped out and I was eager to get home and chow down.

My original plan of cooking up some salmon didnt go so well because it seemed a little…. funky. I hate wasting food but I didnt want to chance it, especially not with fish. So I pulled out the George Foreman and cooked up some chicken breast.

For sides I steamed some green beans and topped them with a little oil and balsamic vinegar for flavor and also a little cous cous. I of course topped the chicken with some sauteed mushrooms.

After dinner I took a chill pill (chill pill = drinking wine out of the bottle…kidding…. kinda) and headed off for bed. After stressful days I have a hard time turning my brain off so I laid around for a while and watched some TV (hello Friends reruns!)

****Sidenote, if you have NOT done so yet, you need to get over to Hungry Runner Girl’s blog now and sign up for the most amazing giveaway there ever was: $100 LuLuLemon gift card.

  • Do you ever use kettle bells in your workout?
    I never did before this training but I really love them now!
  • Do you like Subway? What do you get there?
    Okay, I worked at Subway forever (3 years) a while back. Yes, I was a sandwich artist. And I miss making my own sandwiches exactly how I wanted them (i.e. extra cheesy!)

  1. awww girl…hopefully weds will be MUCH better to you…i had a pretty stressful day at work yesterday too so i feel your pain 😦 workouts always make me feel better! as does drinking wine straight out of the bottle 😉

    ive used kettle bells before and I love them! the first time i used them, i could barely walk the next day, so i def knew they were doing something right, haha

    im not a huge fan of subway, but i do have it from time to time. i think its their bread that im not a huge fan of. it kind of tastes like i’m eating..air for some reason. i’m a weirdo. i love subs, but i like them from other places around here better.

    I’ve used kettlebells a few times and man they are tough! I’m jealous of your TRX workout- my gym doesn’t have them and I’ve been wanting to try.
    Thanks for sharing about the giveaway- that is awesome!

    • Aw of course! 🙂 I had read a little about trx straps before we tried them in class, mostly around blogs and thought they sounded cool but was thinking if I ever got a hold of them myself I probably wouldn’t really know what to do! Haha so I’m glad I have guidance, I need it haha

  3. I used Kettleballs once and I couldn’t walk right for two days…. My favorite sandwich at Subway is the Oven Roasted Chicken Sandwich on Wheat with extra mustard – of course! You know, I don’t own anything Lululemon yet, and I’m kinda glad since their stuff is SO expensive 🙂

    • I own one lululemon pull over and only because someone gave it to me as a gift, otherwise that is it because it is much to expensive for my budget haha. BUT it is crazy comfortable and their stuff has an amazing fit!

  4. it’s so funny, i get the EXACT same thing at subway and everyone always makes fun of me for being ‘plain/simple’! hehe. 🙂

    i haven’t ever used kettleballs but i’ve heard lots of good things. i don’t know, i kinda certain i’d end up knocking myself out…i can barely manage running in a straight line, no coordination on this girl….hehe.
