Just Do It

Mal was already working out in the gym when I arrived home, so I boogied upstairs, changed into my gym clothes, and joined him for a workout. I wasn't at all motivated to workout on my commute home, but I am so glad that I chose to "just do it" and get my butt moving. I did 25 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes walking on the treadmill. Towards the end of my workout, I was getting hungry for dinner, so I only did about 1/2 of my back and biceps workout, which I'll finish tomorrow morning.

Mal cooked dinner for me tonight. He made me a BLT on Ezekiel bread before I even got back from my workout-- all I had to do was sit down and eat it! What a guy! It was a delicious sandwich too!


After eating my sandwich, I still wanted something else to eat... I was craving sweet, nutty carbs. I decided on Ezekiel bread, toasted with peanut butter and wheat germ sprinkled on top, and a few squares of a Hershey's bar (baby shower favor) broken into pieces. I'm a big fan of this combination. The wheat germ added a natural, crunchy texture to the peanut butter, and the combo of chocolate and peanut butter is always a sweet treat. It was totally what I was craving! Off to watch How I Met Your Mother... then bed! Good night!

I love "How I Met Your Mother"...and "Two and A Half Men" too! I've looked at the Ezeikel Bread...is it really good? I think it's the "sprouted" word that I can't get past. Do you actually see the "sprouts" in the bread? Do you have to keep it in the fridge?

I'll need to give that snack idea a try!

Aren't those workouts where we almost-didn't-go the best? I hope you feel good!

And that is so sweet that he made you a sandwich for dinner. My boyfriend makes me grilled cheese with eggs- and I love it!

I was just thinking about wheat germ today! My mom used to add it to our pancakes and I would always complain because I wanted the IHOP kind. haha. But today I made some waffles with flax seed and LOVED the crunch. If I was not allergic to wheat I am SURE I would love your sandwich!

Also your dinner looks fantastic. What a great guy for having it ready for when you got back :-)
