Reversed Day

Happy Wednesday! We’re more than halfway through the work week! Since Josh and I have tons going on this afternoon/tonight, I switched my day around and took Body Pump at 5:45 this morning. It was a great way to kick off the day! I then came home and had an apple with peanut butter and a little granola and coffee.

My initial lunch plan was sweet potato based (after seeing Jenn’s awesome looking sweet potato fries). However, I soon realized I have tonssssssss of salad stuff and I don’t want it to go bad, so…I had the usual salad (romaine, carrots, tomato, corn, black beans, olive oil, balsamic vinegar).

I also had (ANOTHER) apple with cinnamon


For a snack this afternoon, I am planning either a banana or a piece of whole wheat bread and potentially some more coffee… We are going out to dinner tonight with Josh’s parents, so I will try to take some pics and post them up tomorrow. I also plan to do 3 sets of push ups and some more stretching (for BBBC). Have a great night (Lost is on!!)

Have fun at dinner with Josh's parents. Very sweet of you to bake them some bread. :)

You know I love Lost and can't wait to watch it tonight. Still can't believe Sayid shot little Ben.

Thanks for the orzo tip - you know I've never made it!? Perhaps something I should try soon.

Erica, your month of clean eating is going so well. How are you feeling - how is the stomach? I'm almost done with my Coffee-Mate, and other than that, I'm doing pretty well with the clean eats. I love eating healthy! Makes me so happy to be filling my body with good things. :)

5:45am?! I admire that early start time!!! :)

Diana said...

I'm glad your day is off to a nice start! Working out in the morning always gives me so much energy during the day.

What a great salad!

The Blonde Duck said...

You should write a salad cookbook. I could eat more veggies then (my downfall!)

Holly said...

I think I could have that for lunch everyday - yum!

I love working out in the morning. Although my first minute or two is a lil' rough (i.e. no one should talk to me during that time). :-) But once I'm up, I'm at 'em. And I really feel like it's instant caffeine, ya know?!

Danielle said...

Enjoy going out to dinner tonight!

Michelle said...

You're so good. I should probably do push-ups...sometime.

Julie said...

luckytastebuds said...

Hiii Erica!! Man it's been too long! How've you been girlie?!?!? I am always so motivated by your posts cuz of all your amazing energy! :) It definitely makes me a happy woman. You're so amazing for having the energy to work out so early in the morning. DO you have tips on how to energize yourself for that?? My biggest problem is just not being able to wake up and find the energy to stumble to the gym. :P HOpe you're having a greaaaat week so far!

Sara said...

I wish the gym I go to would offer classes early in the morning :) I miss my Body Pump!!

Heather said...

i love apples with cinnamon. so yummy!

Maria said...

I prefer working out in the mornings. It is easier to get it out of the way. If I wait til night I tend to slack off, I get tired and too many things come up. So I usually workout in the early a.m! Although I had to take today off, tummy issues. I plan on getting up early!

I hope you had fun at dinner. Do you have your bread recipe on your blog? I want to try it.

Erin of Care to Eat said...

Do we not love AM workouts? Especially because we've been bouncing out of bed at the crack of dawn!

Elyse said...

Wow, I am super impressed with your 5:45am body pump. This salad looks awesome, by the way! So glad I found your blog; it's awesome!

MizFit said...

therunningyogini said...

Yum, I love the corn/black bean combo. I will have to try that!! Have a great day :-)

lauren said...

great salad - enjoy your dinner!

Trish said...

I can't believe you were up that early. I have thought about going to the gym for a spin class in the morning - but then I think about how it means me having to get out of bed. Hmmm . . . the bed always wins! LOL!

ksgoodeats said...

LOST was sooooo good! Hope you liked it as much as I did :D

Hope you had a blast at dinner with Josh's parents!

Dawn said...

We haven't been out to dinner in ages. I think we'll have to go this weekend to my favorite sushi joint, as sushi (no soy) is part of my clean diet. I could eat sushi and lemon water every night.

Nutritious is Delicious said...

Tortilla chips are my weakness too girl! At least they were organic? haha Love the colorful salad!

lesley said...

Hopefully you've gotten to eat your sweet potato since your actual post ; )

Zesty Cook said...
