Mid-Week Check In

Wednesday. Nice to see you! I love the feeling after a Wednesday is over because the rest of the week is downhill from there! I can’t say that this week has flown by, but it also hasn’t dragged on, so I guess that is a good thing!

Where did we last catch up? Oh, I posted a workout yesterday, but didn’t really post about much else (besides big news about my friend Jess’s new company!), so there is a lot to talk about!

We finally had nice weather on Monday!! My coworker and I decided to break in the nice weather with our first lunch on the water. Working in Fort Point definitely has its perks in the summer!


Post work, to take more advantage of the weather, I laced up my sneaks  and went for a nice, 4 mile jog through Brighton before teaching Dynamax. Per usual, we had a great Dynamax class- can’t believe the last class of the session is next week! Time is flying by- I’ll be 28 in 4 days. Yikes!


Yesterday was a much-needed rest day. Well, rest day except for walking at least 3 miles in the city and getting up to do my Triceps Tuesday workout for the April Arms Challenge. I loved yesterday’s workout because of the crab walks!! This got a funny conversation going between Athena and myself on Gchat.

animal workoutDo any of you have funny animal moves that are great forms of exercise?

After work, I headed over to Jess’s condo to talk about our partnership and congratulate her for her big day! Since we have the same birthday and I walk right past Crumbs, I picked her up a little treat!

001So, so yummy! Tell me, do you have a favorite flavor there? There are so many that I have a hard time choosing!

I ended up getting home later than I had planned, so I thought about what I could throw together for dinner while I was on the T. I didn’t come up with much, but it was healthy, tasted good and filled me up. I’ll take it! Looks, on the other hand, are really not that great. I promise it tasted good, though!

Quinoa harvest blend, chicken, asparagus, goat cheese and marinara sauce. Quick, easy and healthy… and I used up some leftovers:)

And that brings us to today! I kept thinking that I could wear skirts and dresses with no tights this week, but between rainy mornings and cooler temps in the morning, I haven’t bitten the bullet yet.

004Hopefully next week!

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Questions for you: How has your week been? Is it going by fast or slow? What is your favorite quick, easy and healthy meal to throw together when you get home late?

    My go-to whenj came home late was either something simar to what you did (quinoa bowl with random veggies. And if you’ve never had a hot quinoa bowl with hummus mixed in, you’re missing out!) or a smoothie bowl topped with kashi or shredded wheat.

    Hi Nick,
    For a retired person, I’m working harder than I ever did!(not really!) I substituted each day, and did Kid’s Club after school program until 5:00–love the kids! I enjoy prepping veggies–with a glass of wine in hand–so I can always dress up a piece of meat, usually chicken or pork, with a saute’d veggie-I often throw in a tablespoon of lowfat sour cream and lots of herbs–sometimes I add a dollop of wine in that too.

      Hey mom! I came to the conclusion long ago (probably from watching you do it for so many years), that cooking with wine in hand is WAY better than cooking sans wine in hand. You are very good at throwing together things from the fridge to create a quick and healthy meal. I should sautee up veggies on Sunday for the week… good idea!
