Hey! Today, I managed to remember my lunch, but I did forget a ton of other things on my way out the door, including my work “snacks” (and no, i can’t get through the day without them!). I blame it on lack of coffee, but more on that later.
Happy WIAW! Click over to Jenn’s blog to see all the fun wednesday eats. I like the theme this month, though I don’t have any healthy treats to share this week.
Who else is having a hard time waking up now that it’s dark so late? How do you motivate? I didn’t get up until 6:15 and need to be out of the house by 7 (and it’s still pretty dark at 7!).
Breakfast was a smoothie and a cup of Dandy Blend! They were nice enough to send me a few samples. It’s really good! I’ve been off coffee the past week and I was really excited to try Dandy Blend. Tastes similar to regular instant coffee and great with a dash of almond milk.
But….after almost a week without coffee (we ran out and I never bought more and thought I would ween myself off), I was struggling all morning, getting cranky, and just needed something. Sooooooo, I walked over to Starbucks for a half caf/half decaf tall cup. It was really good and I felt better afterwards, can’t lie.
Since I forgot my snacks, I bought some walnuts too. Yum.
Lunch was eaten at my desk. A salad with chicken and avocado (forgot the dressing this morning, so it was dry) and a bag of carrots.
We’re having a heat wave over here, so I used it as an excuse for an afternoon a walk to the homemade ice cream store. Vegan chocolate chip ice cream. YUM!
I ate an early dinner after work- chicken, leftover roasted veggies and sweet potato. I drizzled coconut oil over everything, but get this- it was sooo hot in my apt, that my coconut oil was liquified!
After dinner, I met my sister for a walk. We ended up walking 5 miles.
We stumbled on the America’s Cup Festival and wandered around it for a little bit
And then walked along the water. It was such a beautiful night
Love sunsets! Nights like this make me happy to live in SF.
I drank a big glass of almond milk and ate a banana when I got home.
