If you haven’t heard, its HOT right now on the East Coast. And I mean hot! So hot that when I walk outside, I literally feel like I must be on vacation because there is no way I’d be any where but a beach with weather like this. Needless to say, I get a little bit sad when I realize that I’m heading to work instead of towards a beach chair. Luckily I have just a little over two weeks before I am actually on vacation on Cape Cod so hopefully I can make it 😉
Heat and then a bunch of rain. And people wonder why I want to get back to the West Coast? 8)
Hopefully it will cool off enough later for me to take a nice long walk outside, because let me tell you all, I am sore from Day freaking 1 of NROLFW! At least I know its working, right?! I think a long walk will help stretch the legs (thighs, butt, etc.) If not, I’ll hop on the treadmill, but that is always a bit more boring, especially when you are just walking.
Breakfast this morning was two waffles, two PB’s, banana + some chia seeds. I really love those seeds, and I really do feel like they help keep me more hydrated and fueled throughout the day.
My office ended up doing a big lunch today for July birthdays and also for an employee that is being transferred to a different location. There was lots of food, mostly not the healthiest food, so I stuck with a piece of baked chicken and sauteed vegetables on the side, including zucchini, mushrooms, cabbage + onions. I forgot to snap a photo, (a big gathering with executives will do that to
me you,) but I didn’t forget to snap a picture of my dessert. I tried to eat as healthy as possible so I could have a small slice of birthday cake, carrot cake to be exact. There were several options, but carrot cake is one of my favorites.
Now I am sitting at my desk trying not to fall asleep. I guess my break is over and I should get back to work! It’s almost Friday! Woohoo!
What’s your favorite type of cake?
