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!
“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!)

- 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!)
