Good morning, friends!
I haven’t shared pictures of any of my packed lunches lately, so I thought today would be a good day to bring it back.
My lunches continue to be quick and easy and made in the morning right before I rush out the door. Maybe someday I’ll get my act together and make lunches the night before… maybe not.
On Monday, I threw together a salad from some weekend leftovers, plus a baggie of unpictured balsamic vinaigrette.
To go with the salad, a hummus wrap! I haven’t made a wrap in ages.
I keep the tortillas in the freezer so they stay fresh longer, and usually pop them in the microwave on a paper towel for 20 seconds before making my wraps. Well, I set the microwave to 2 minutes by accident but figured I would just stop it after 20 seconds. Um, yeah. Clearly I got distracted, 2 minutes went by… and my wrap was toasty. I improved and made a hummus quesadilla of sorts.
Plus some grapes.
For afternoon snacks, I packed some almond butter + an apple (Gretchen, this reminds me of one of your photos!):
I headed to Crossfit Dupont right after work on Monday. Another fun workout! Matt didn’t join this time because he was in need of a rest day — he had the big Tough Mudder on Saturday (it went well!) and then a soccer game on Sunday! I was thinking of sharing some photos/thoughts from his Tough Mudder experience, if you guys are interested? He and his buddies got some great action shots along the way using my waterproof camera.
Anyway! Here was Monday night’s workout:
The girls and guys were split up again and the girls (there were only 4 of us this time) did the DWOD first. The pull up holds were SO hard! I only made it to like 15 seconds… maybe 20?
Overhead walking lunges — I used a 15 pound plate:
Sledgehammer strikes! I love these — you feel so hardcore and it’s great stress relief to slam down the hammer as hard as you can.
Plus burpees! I made this little action image thingy using Gickr.com — there’s not a photo of me fully jumping at the top or fully in the pushup/plank, but you get the idea.
When we were done with 3 rounds, we swapped with the guys and headed over to the other side of the gym to start the strength workout!
I’m still having mobility issues (my shoulders/upper back are REALLY tight) but guess what? I was able to do a legit squat holding the bar on my back on Monday night for the first time ever!!! I was so excited — I think my shoulders were stretched out already from the earlier workout. I stuck with the 30 pound bar because my shoulders are still too stiff for me to add extra weight, but I was pretty pumped. Here’s hoping I can eventually work up to doing more! Must do more mobility/stretch moves at home…
Off to work I go — what did you guys pack for lunch today?
