How pathetic would I look if I went to write a FF post and had done nothing but guzzle wine and watch trash TV? Every time I try to convince myself to skip the gym or indulge in unhealthy food, I remember 1) my ultimate goal to get fit and fab and 2) that I have to report my progress on my blog.
As I mentioned in week 2, today I’m sharing my favorite easy and healthy snacks. According to a self.com article, 64 percent of snacks aren’t planned. Unplanned snaking could easily lead to bad choices like processed, high-calorie food from your office vending machine. Instead, stock your desk drawers or office fridge with some of these healthy options that are easy to grab when you hit that mid-day lull.
Simple Cucumber and Cherry Tomato Salad: Mix a cup of sliced, peeled cucumber with about 10 cherry tomatoes and a tablespoon of lite vinaigrette dressing (my fave is the Ken's Steak House). I like to season mine with some fresh ground pepper. Very refreshing and low in cals. I'll make it the night before and bring some to work for an afternoon snack at my desk.

Saturday: Went to a yoga class and then took my nephew to the park. He thinks its fun to run from me so I spent the entire time chasing him and almost having a heart attack every time he made a beeline for the nearby street. I would tell him, "Reese, this is not funny!" to which he would giggle, run and say, "Hahaha, yes it is Aunt Lindsey." Boys will be boys.
|Don't you love his cute little outfit? Aunt Lindsey got him that shirt and those shorts at Old Navy for $11.|
Monday: Valentine's Day. After work I met up with my friend Courtney for Happy Hour. We we're supposed to run hills and conduct a little "boot camp" at a nearby park, but for some reason wine sounded better to us. Do you blame us?
Tuesday: Bicep/Triceps + 30 minutes interval cardio + 10 min suana
Wednesday: Hamstrings/Quads/Calves + 30 minutes interval cardio + 20 min sauna
Thursday: Rested, legs we're sore.
Friday: After work I'm doing chest/shoulders/back and cardio.
Saturday: I plan on going to yoga again and it's supposed to nice so I'm sure I'll be chasing my nephew again at the park.
Sunday: NOT going on a 12 mile bike ride.
