Tone It Up Meals: Week 2
I fully intended to give you a recap of our trip to Philadelphia in the form of the delicious meals that I ate, but then I much failed to take a lot of pictures. I’d be a pretty terrible travel blogger because truthfully, sometimes I don’t want to take pictures when I’m traveling. So I did manage to capture some of the noteworthy meals on Snapchat and Instagram but I failed at documenting a full day of eating. Whoops! So I thought I’d just show you what I ate yesterday while attempting to get back on track after the trip with the Tone It Up challenge.
I skipped my normal smoothie bowl and had a yogurt bowl instead. I’m still all about the toppings. This one was frozen blueberries, frozen cherries, chia seeds, and coconut. YUM.
I packed an apple and cashews for a morning snack but I ended up only eating the cashews. I started sitting at a new desk at work and the area is so quiet. I didn’t want to be the person loudly eating an apple so… I skipped it.
For lunch, I headed to the cafeteria for a quick bite. I made this giant salad and pretty much ate it as fast as I could before my next meeting. A bit later, the candy cart came by (yes, we have a cart that brings free candy straight to your desk) so I had a little cup of gummy bears. I hadn’t had any for a while so it was a nice little treat!
The afternoon was pretty busy with meetings so it went by quickly. After work, I met up with Alex and a friend at En Su Boca, a local Mexican restaurant.
I normally just get tacos but I decided to try something different. This was the burrito bowl with rice, black beans, cheese, veggies, salsa, and avocado. This was so good but definitely a lot of food. Alex and I ended up sharing it.
Once we got home, we went for a walk and I squeezed in a couple of the Tone It Up workouts. Every day is different and Tuesday was hard because I was still sore from Monday! After I finished, Alex and I watched a little TV and I snacked on a few frozen grapes and a little bit of popcorn. I’m not sure why I was feeling so snacky but I’ll blame it on the workouts.
