Day 4 - Lazy Day with Workout ;)

Once again I started my day with a walk/run mix and since the weather was so beautiful it wasn't hard to get out of bed and into my workout clothes! I enjoyed my 4.3 mile path along the river!
To keep my energy up I had a handful nuts before I left the house - or more like while I left the house!
I came home to strech and make breakfast - yummie!!
Enjoyed the sweet nothing-to-do on my couch catching up with Supernatural, Glee, The Vampire Diaries (<--- definitely a new favorite!!), Gossip Girl, Melrose Place (<-- don't know what to think about this, mainly because I did not watch the original) and 90210!! So I had my share of series for sunday!! *uff*
But of course I did not sit on my butt all day - while watching all the above I made lunch around 3pm, thought about doing some housework but decided that next week I'll have more than enough time to do all of that because I (sadly) have only one dance class all week!!
So I did some calisthenics on my couch and planks and push-ups on the floor before continuing the lazy-theme with laying on the couch! ;)
Once my belly started to ruble again I started my pumpking/squash dish - only to put some on top of my salad and save the rest for the upcoming week as lunch! It was okee.. The Pattison wasn't as good as I hoped but whatever it was good on top of the salad though!
After chatting with a friend, finally taking a shower and washing my hair, I finished some of the before mentioned episodes when I decided to have something sweet!
Not soon after I was ready for bed... Continued to chat a little and watched some more series until my eyes shut. :)

small handful salted nuts to start the day

same breakfast as yesterday - oats cooked in water with half a mashed banana and half a kiwi - toped with the rest banana and kiwi, some cranberries (for color ;) ), pinenuts and pumpkinseed butter (what a great color!!)

dinner was potato-leek-spinach-bacon I made yesterday with three big shrimps I just marinated with a little mustard and soya sauce and roasted them with lots of garlic :D (I made the whole bunch of them - about 8 - and saved the rest for the upcoming week)

somehow the lunch left me with some room in my belly for some nuts and babybel

dinner was a not-so-huge salad - iceberg salad, leftover couscous, tomatoes, some roasted pumkin/squash/onion, avocado as always with cottage cheese balsamic sauce

and of course I topped the salad after mixing it with some more nuts - I AM NUTS!! ;)

last but definitely not least - fruitsalad (papaya, pineapple, mango and lots of grapes) and a truvia sweetened little plain yogurt to finish my day

at least that's what I though!! but no... I had a little salty craving and to no AGAIN eat some more nuts - I decided on a little nut butter on ricecakes - and brushed my teeth right after so I could stop the cravings... :$

That was my glorious sunday!! ;)
Hope you all had a great weekend and everyone is as ready for the new week as I am!! :D

Take care and always remember - You're doing the best you can, whatever you do!!!
