Hi and happy November! Seriously, how did we get to November already? Although the weather in southern Indiana doesn’t seem to have gotten the note—it’s been in the 80s the last few days.
Things around here have been pretty calm—I’ve been getting a lot of stuff done at home and have spent a lot of time watching TV lately haha. I’m currently typing this post up as I’m watching Game 6 of the World Series (go Cubs go!). I’m also watching lots of episodes of Last Week Tonight via HBO Now, and I finished The Jinx on Sunday. If you were a fan of Making a Murderer and have access to HBO on demand, do yourself a favor and go check it out.
Enough about my TV guilty pleasures—let’s get to another WIAW.
This looks like the most unappetizing breakfast. I didn’t realize that until I looked back at my photos. But it was so good, thanks to Justin’s maple almond butter and these turkey sausages that I’m still loving. I grabbed a banana because they were looking like they were almost done, and picked up an iced coffee on my way to work.
Lunch was leftover chicken fried rice that I made Sunday night for dinner.
This was white rice, onion, garlic, mushrooms, carrots, peas, chicken, and pineapple. Plus lots and lots of coconut aminos.
And an apple on the side for dessert.
I was feeling really low motivation at work, so I went to the gym on my lunch break. I’ve been really trying to throw my gym bag in the car every day, just in case I get the chance to go. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes I skip. I made up this quick functional workout before I left the office and really enjoyed it!
I warmed up with 10 minutes on the elliptical, completed this quick circuit workout, and then cooled down with some stretching. I’ve been really interested in functional workouts lately—I might do a longer post on this in the future, but here’s a quick overview here.
After lunch, I got back to work and had some afternoon snacks: an unpictured Larabar (peanut butter cookie) and baby carrots.
Plus some leftover food from our office Halloween party on Monday: a fun size Kit Kat, 2 bites of cookie cake, and a handful of this puppy chow I made. Beware of the puppy chow, it’s so good, but you have to buy a jar of Biscoff…which if you’re me, means you’ll gorge yourself on spoonfuls of it until you get yourself together and throw the jar out. And then take the trash out. Because who knows—you might be crazy enough to get it back out of the trash and finish it off. (Kidding.)
Dinner was leftovers from Monday night.
Lettuce tacos (filling was ground beef, tomatoes, onion, garlic, peppers, mushrooms + spices) with some corn tortilla chips.
And a strawberry popsicle for dessert. Because why not?
That’s it for this week’s installment. Thanks so much to Peas and Crayons for hosting these weekly WIAW gatherings. I hope you all are having a wonderful week filled with lots of good things! ❤
