de-icing + what i ate wednesday

WELL. This is what we’ve been dealing with so far this week

betches-

As pretty as the snow is… okay, it’s actually mostly ice. Eek! Not the best to drive on, but someone’s gotta go save lives (not really, I’m sure my patients would LOVE a day off of therapy). I was jealous of all the kids sledding down the hills! I remember sledding down my neighbors’ driveways on my parents’ baking sheets back in the day (that made me sound 80 years old). Only took me about 30 minutes to defrost my windshield before work. This stuff my mom gave me could barely make a dent in the ice blocks on my windows. Way too much work. Kudos to you, northerners.

I almost just sprayed this in my coffee so I could call in sick to work…

All of this “wintry mix” turned into brown slush though… gross. I need to go someplace with pretty snow! Denver trip anyone??

By the way, anyone book a trip there for FitBloggin’ 15 yet? I’ve been browsing/stalking past attendee’s posts about it, and it looks like SO much fun. And looks like there are quite a few awesome bloggers signed up already – I MUST MEET ALL OF YOU.

Oh and on their website, it says their attendees are “a melting pot of fit-minded people”… I want to be in that pot! I think it needs to be the blogging conference I cross off my 30 before 30 list!

What I Ate Wednesday, #WIAW

breakfast

unnamed (5)

prepping my oatmeal: 1/4c old fashioned oats, 1/2c Designer Whey vanilla, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp hemp seeds, cinnamon

This breakfast has kept me SO full this week, it’s awesome! I love the addition and texture of the hemp seeds. I added about 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk to this and left them in the fridge overnight before microwaving in the morning.

lunch

unnamed (3)

lettuce wraps – roasted turkey, red pepper hummus, 1/2 avocado, tomato. String cheese & a pear on the side.

snacks

spinach, kale, zucchini, butternut squash, shaved brussels, tempeh and an egg!

OH! Happy Ash Wednesday! Here’s a great post by Jennifer all about Ash Wednesday. I was raised Catholic, and while I usually attend Methodist church these days, I’m all for some Lenten action. I’m not really a believer in “giving something up” for Lent (I find that this usually just turns into a 40-day diet which kind of misses the purpose – but hey, do what works for you!). I usually try to do something during Lent instead. This year, I am going to complete the devotional 40 Days with Jesus during this time.

I really enjoyed Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling, so I’m excited to read this devotional!

 

—>I LOVED this post by Heather about decision fatigue. This is so true. I tend to keep the same types of meals in rotation from week to week, and this explains the benefits of that! She lends a few more examples of how to combat brain fatigue and to save your brain energy for other things!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and STAY WARM!
