Easy Monday

Hola, amigas! I’m sending happy Monday vibes your way. We made it though way-too-early alarms and long work days. Let’s have a drink! 🙂

At the risk of boring you to tears, today I’ve been either working, working out or chatting with friends – so I don’t have too much to catch you up on, but I wanted to stop in and say hello! 😀


Today I feasted on (un-pictured) butternut squash soup, a salad and a sliced up Granny Smith (with a babybel for spreading!)

I used my Chobani + raspberry jelly concoction as my homemade dressing. It was on point.

There is something about apples and cheese that makes my mouth so happy 🙂


After work, my sweat session went according to plan. I’m so glad so many of you schedule your workouts, too! I headed over to the gym for a 35 minute run on the treadmill followed by a 10 minute cool down on the elliptical (read: I just wanted to find out who the killer was on Law & Order. I was totally right, by the way) 😉

When I first got on the treadmill, I hated my life. My legs felt so terribly stiff and heavy. It was awful. Five minutes into the run, I wanted to quit. Then, I thought about the my-jeans-feel-tight feeling, and I found my second wind 😉 I definitely utilized the Galloway Method today which truly helped. There’s no way I would have stayed on that hell machine treadmill if I didn’t incorporate one or two 5-minute walks.

The rest of the evening will be spent writing papers, reading blogs and getting to bed early 🙂 I hope your night is equally as relaxing!

I want to know – What’s your favorite apple? Fuji for me! Unfortunately, they were all bruised and soft this week at the grocery store, so I went with my close second, good ole’ Granny 🙂
