Happy Independence Day AND What I Ate Wednesday!
You guys better be prepared to party twice as hard =)
[breakfast] black coffee and a jumbo whole grain blueberry-raspberry muffin [snack] a banana en route to the gym and a pile of watermelon post-workout [lunch] a savory stuffed sweet potato [snack] tuna salad snack plate: veggie-loaded tuna salad with pickles, sprouts, cucumbers, and tortilla chips [dinner] two slices of mexican pizza lasagna
side note: I don't recommend eating bananas while driving... truckers honk.
--what i've been drinking--
In addition to my black coffee face-plant in the morning [and afternoon pick-me-up] I've been CHUGGING cucumber water by the glass. By the very large mason jar to be accurate. It's ridiculously refreshing and, if you're a fan of cukes, you should totally follow suit!
I also fell in love with a new beer this week. Magic Hat's Summer Elder Betty is a refreshing wheat beer naturally flavored with elderberry. I love the fortune cookie-esque notes on their bottle caps!
and since this month's focus is fitness...
I'm a little bit of a group fitness junkie. And by a little bit, I mean I'm a raging group fitness junkie. I'm empathetic by nature, so when I surround myself with supportive, energetic, and motivated people, it rubs off effortlessly. Luckily I have some of the best workout buddies and fitness instructors on the planet! All courtesy of the USMC =) Love it!
Here are a few of my favorite fitness classes to take...
Though I have to rotate which ones I attend weekly so I have time to do things like write and EAT!
