Sweat Cures All

You know, I’m a pretty positive person but even positive people have down days and today was one of them. I was just in a crappy mood all morning so I took a break from work to get my workout in. I was going to go for a run but we had some crazy flurry action going on so I hopped on the elliptical for a half hour instead and then followed it up with the ChaLEAN Extreme Push 2 class.

By the time I was done and all sweaty I was feeling a lot better! Exercise is my natural cure-all!

I followed my workout with a coffee flavoured yogurt and a Green Monster with berries!

Snacks this afternoon were some almonds and grapes!

My tip for grapes is to wash and de-stem them when you get them in the door, put them in a bowl and place them in the fridge on a shelf that’s easy to reach! Any time you’re feeling snackish you’ve got easy access to grapes!

Dinner was delish! I baked up a spaghetti squash and added some sautéed onion, garlic, red pepper, sundried tomatoes and marinated artichoke hearts! I topped it off with some light feta and black olives. This is one of my favs and I washed it down with a glass of Shiraz!

For a treat I had a handful of dark chocolate covered almonds and called it a night!
