Back to Basics

After several weeks of being a little off-track, I'm getting back to basics.  I should add a disclaimer that I am in no way unhealthy, but I have been feeling tired and out of it and it's time to get back to what makes me feel good!  I don't typically post what I eat in a day, but today will be one of those posts!

I started today with some Oats in a Jar- I don't know who started this, but I'll be at your home with a thank you gift tomorrow morning!

Yep, I eat my breakfast in a car, so it's a good thing this one was portable (I do not take photos while driving- I actually never drive, hot stuff does).  I also added some TJ's granola on top for crunch along with half of an apple.

Lunch was enjoyed at work (is that an oxymoron?) at my desk.  I had a big platter of veggies, an apple, and an egg.  That blob is ketchup and mustard because it sounded good.  It sounded better than it tasted.

I had already eaten half of the peppers and I also had an orange after all this.  And I ate about 2 servings of mixed peanuts and almonds- guess I needed that protein.
The hubby and I went to Target after work and I got 2 bags of frozen veggies for $3- score!  I also got a new case for my new boyfriend.

I'm a spoiled brat and my consolation prize for losing a perfectly good phone is a brand new iPhone.  Lesson learned.
We also went to the gym and I took a spinning class and had to peel myself out of the seat- now that's a good class!  Dinner was this:

Stirfry veggies with shrimp and a cold cucumber- nothing special, but not a cheesecake!  I'm enjoying some almonds now and getting ready to shower and watch How I Met Your Mother.

November Back to Basics
Since we are heading into the holidays and cold season, I'm working on doing what I can to stay healthy.  For me this means:
  • Getting at least 6 glasses of water a day (the other two glasses include coffee and are non-negotiable)
  • Exercise at least 4 times a week and try something new at least once a week
  • Take a 10 minute break each day at work- outside of the office and preferable walking!
  • Get in all my fruit and veggie servings each day
What are you doing to stay healthy this season?
