Hi friends! I hope you all had a great weekend!
I spent most of the day yesterday helping my friend paint at her new apartment (Lisa, who you may remember me mentioning in my Cycle of Inspiration post!)
That is a BOLD blue for sure, but it is a big room and they have tons of light, so I think it’s going to work out really well. I felt like I was swimming in the ocean when I looked at it :).
I can’t tell you how much I love painting! Seriously. If anyone needs help painting their house, call me up! When I get in the zone I get reallllly into it. Also, it’s a pretty decent workout if you are actually putting effort into your painting, I was super schweaty afterwards (and COVERED in blue paint).
We busted into a few impromptu dance parties as well, which stepped up the fun for sure.
I snagged some yummy pizza for lunch while I was there…
Yep, I will paint your house for free pizza :D. Oh, and Tim Hortons Iced Cappuccinos, which Lis also treated me to that went unpictured.
When I got home yesterday afternoon I really did not feel like doing anything in the kitchen, so for dinner Ando and I walked over to our local Subway.
I ordered my usual:
Usually I cannot go to Subway without grabbing one of their ridiculously delicious cookies, but since I still had the Enjoy Life cookies at home I decided to hold off.
So we went home and ate two entire boxes of them. I’m not even kidding. The Sugar Shortbread and the Vanilla Honey Graham are now both gone. We had eaten some already, but it was still a crazy amount of cookie consumption! I’m not sure why I needed such a ginormous snack attack, but I could not stop myself! I was a bottomless pit. Too many cookies!
Here is what I think happened… I only ate a bowl of Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal before BodyPump in the morning, and then two slices of pizza for lunch (I should have eaten four! Ah, hindsight). No snacks in between, and I think that is what keeps my eating in check.
Oh well, each meal is a clean slate!
I was seriously still full from all the cookies when I woke up this morning, so I made myself an extremely simple breakfast.
A banana wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla with a smear of peanut butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Hey, this breakfast includes whole grains, protein and healthy fats! Not bad at all for a little breaky on the go.
Gotta go, yo!
Do you find if you don’t eat enough to fuel your body during the day, you’ll be a bottomless pit later?
