Wind at my Face

I’ve got the crockpot cooking,

the laundry going and my suitcase partially unpacked. I guess I’m trying to redeem myself from this morning. Speaking of, let’s pick up right where we left off.

WORKOUT

I was hungry again mid-morning and scrambled some egg whites topped with ketchup.

Not the most beautiful photo, but it always does the trick.

WORKOUT

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do on the workout front today. But the sun was shining, it was a balmy 32 degrees, and I needed some fresh air, so I headed out for a 60-minute power walk.

I listened to the first episode of Serial. As a major fan of murder mysteries, I highly recommend the podcast. It made me want to listen to #2 and walk another hour! But I didn’t because the wind was whipping at my face.

If I didn’t tell you this picture was taken today, you might think it was from the summer. Chicago still has some of the most beautiful views year round.

Also to note, the lakeshore path is swarming with people, dogs, bikes and rollerbladers from June through September. Today, I saw about five people. Chicago really is a different city in the summer.

LUNCH

I knew I wanted a big a** salad for lunch, so I chopped romaine + swiss cheese + mixed nuts + 1/2 green apple + 1 large carrot + apple maple chicken sausage + 1/2 salmon filet (leftover from Sunday) + Marzetti yogurt ranch.

I’m am the least picky person when it comes to salad. I literally throw in anything I can find that resembles a potential topping. I might not serve this weirdness to anyone else, but it works for moi 🙂

After plugging through some school work, I enjoyed a snack of sweet ‘n salty popcorn + 2 cuties on the side.

We don’t have anything special planned for tonight. I’m headed to a yoga class in the morning, followed by a day of babysitting and a graduation cocktail reception at my school. Really looking forward to it!

Questions for you:

  • Are you a Serial fan?
  • What’s your favorite salad topping?
