Hello, hello! I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. Monday and Tuesday flew by for me!
Yesterday, I spent the morning work, work, working my tail off and then broke for lunch around noon.
I’ve had a major craving for chicken noodle soup lately—I probably mentioned it to Monica at least 3 or 4 times over the weekend—so I finally got myself some. I was really craving my Grammie’s homemade chicken soup, but the canned stuff would have to do.
The Healthy Valley brand was pretty good. It didn’t have a ton of stuff in it (noodles, chicken, etc.), but it was still tasty and satisfied my craving.
On the side with lunch, I had some steamed spinach with vinegar and a couple of Babybel mozzarellas.
A little while later, I whipped up a chicken salad recipe for a Health post next week, so I sampled a few bites. Delish!
Look at that face!
The boys had a nice time sniffing and exploring the park.
There was even a little puppy playtime! So cute!
After the park, I dropped Murphy off at home, fed him dinner (pug priorities), and then headed to CrossFit. I haven’t been in ages, so I was excited to see everyone and get my sweat on.
11 Minutes to complete:
50 Kettlebell Swings (70, 53)
Remaining time: as many Burpees as possible.
It took me forever to finish the row (add rowing to my list of GOATS), so I had less than 2 minutes to do my kettlebell swings. I ended up with 25 reps (using a 45-pound kettlebell), so I never made it to the Burpees. It was a tough workout, but I’m so glad to be back!
After CrossFit, neither Mal and I were in the mood to cook dinner, so he ate the rest of my chicken salad from lunch and I made an open-face egg and cheese sandwich on a bagel. Dinner done.
I ended the evening with some Milk Duds while folding laundry. (We probably shouldn’t have opened the Halloween candy. I can’t keep my hands out of it now!)
