TGIF! This morning I woke up bright and early, put the coffee on, checked my email (I doubt anyone is looking for a response at 6:30, but I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss anything critical last night), and put today’s workout on my ipad. So Far + So Good = Great Friday.
Today is going to be short and sweet because I ain’t got time fa dis!
Cardio Fix – I have no idea why I was looking forward to this today because I totally struggled with it and it kicked my A$$!!! I made it through though with no blood, but lots of sweat and tears….or maybe I just mistook the extra sweat for tears. I don’t know. Cardio is your frenemy. It puts a beat down on you but fights your fat cells at the same time. Damn cardio.

- Turkey Unwich with onion, jalapeños, sprouts, & mustard
So today I made plans with my friend Karin because I’m working in Jacksonville and we haven’t seen eachother in forever. I told her we needed to find something healthy which is terribly hard among all of the restaurants downtown. You just never really know what chef’s are adding to things to make them taste good, and I don’t want to be that girl that customizes everything. We ended up going to Jimmy Johns because I could get an unwich there. I know iceburg lettuce is basically water and doesn’t count as one of our veggies, but I’m counting that along with the other items as my veggie. So I guess I did customize this but it’s not like I asked for it to be rolled up in spinach leaves that they didn’t have.

- San Marco Elixer (apple, carrot, celery, parsley, beets, ginger, garlic)
Right after I met with one of my favorite customers I felt super hungry and didn’t have anything with me. Luckily Pulp was right across the street. Pulp in Jacksonville is one of my favorite juice bars. I wish there were one of these everywhere. Other places, it’s harder to come up with something with no added sugar, but lately I’ve been accommodated for. I love to add beets into my juice! one of my favorite smoothies here is Good Morning Granola. I’d have that every time if I could!

- Asian salad
- One beer
- One glass of red wine
Sooooo I kind of cheated tonight. I didn’t mean to! We went to watch an improv show across from our building and then saw that this place down the street was having a soft opening. We have been waiting for it to open so wanted to go check it out. I ended up having a glass of wine at Hourglass Pub and an Asian Salad at Elements Bistro. I was only going to have a taste of it and then ate almost all of it. It could have been worse. I think the only thing that made it a real cheat meal was the dressing it was tossed in because it had a sweetness to it. The tuna was amazing! By the way, I’m totally guessing at the container amounts
Hopefully that will tease my body a little and won’t affect my fix. I doubt that it will. It’s not like I had a burger and fries and sometimes your taste buds need to have a little bit of fun!
