Workout: Morning 5k and 45 minutes of weight
I’m totally late, but I wanted to fill everyone in on my day off. I was so excited, because I NEVER take a day off!! I had some doctor appointments that were going to take a long time, so I convinced myself to finally take a full day off from work. Here’s how it went down:
5:30AM – Oh, snap, I have the day off…guess I get to hit the snooze button!! Woot Woot
6:30AM – Went on my favorite 5K morning run
9:00AM – Went to Trader Joe’s, because I’m a Joe Hoe and that’s what we do. I’m obsessed with TJ’s (I go there so much I’m on a nickname basis with the store); for me it’s like the Nordstroms shoe department for a shoe-aholic. They always have super delicious samples too (without the nasty crowds of Costco)
But today I was on a mission, I needed two thing: Ezekiel Bread and my favorite protein bars (they are $1.50 more across the street at the grocery store!!):
If you haven’t tried the Chocolate-Peanut Butter PowerCrunch bars, you are SERIOUSLY missing out. Power Crunch bars are made with Proto Whey protein, which is DH hydrolyzed whey protein (one of your stomach and small intestines job is to hydrolize food) and aids in absorption. So, lets say your stomach is taking a day off like I am, maybe it won’t hydrolyze all of the protein you are eating…no worries! This Power Crunch company already does this for you, so you’re body will optimize protein absorption.
10AM – Yes, I was at TJ’s for an hour eyeballing all of the new foods!!! I went to my favorite juice bar to get some Scrumdiddlyumptious raw veggie juice (sounds yummy, right?). Paradise Juice in Paradise Valley has a super healthy menu of salads, sandwhiches, smoothies, and straight-up juices. It’s hard to find places to that serves true Juice….500 calorie Jamba Juice adds sherbet (yes, read their nutrition info) and other juice bars add yogurt…NOT PARADISE JUICE!
Since it’s close to Halloween, I got the Magic Juice: Carrots, Spinach, Parsley, Celery, Apples, and Lemon!!
10:30AM – Phylli Time: Doctors and Such
2:30PM – A little bit of work….Wait a second…I thought this was a day off!!
3:30PM – Nap time…jealous yet?
5:00PM – Weights and then pig out on PowerCrunch bars
6:00PM – Delish dinner with Mr. Romance, steak with baked potato drenched with Pace Picante Sauce. I only buy salsa that is direct from San Antonio from people that know what Picante Sauce is suppose to taste like(GET THE ROPE!)
Phyllin’ Phat only endorses true picante sauces that are direct from San Antonio..no New York City Salsa here.
7:00PM – Induldge in my new favorite show – the X Factor!! Is it me or should just the above 30 have their own competition show!! I LOVE the over 30!!!!
9:00PM – Shower and Bedtime…
Question – What do you do on your days off??
