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?
