Yesterday began as most other days of my winter break have — a healthy breakfast followed by some computer work, followed by a good workout. Yesterday’s workout was a 4 mile run + some weights/abs. Before I knew it, it was time for lunch!
I’ve been eating a lot more meat than usual over break, so I was really in the mood for something vegetarian for lunch yesterday. I whipped up a big salad:
So good. This was mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, green beans, avocado, green pepper, and goat cheese topped with some cracked pepper and balsamic vinaigrette.
On the side, I had some hummus and whole wheat pita.
I could eat hummus every meal for the rest of my life. So. Good.
Delish lunch. Plus some iced tea! Fun fact — I never put ice in my drinks at home. Anyone else?
After lunch, I headed up to Bethesda to get my hair cut. But first — I met friends Sana and Megan for frozen yogurt at my very favorite — Sweetgreen. 🙂
Hooray! Oh, Sweetgreen fro-yo… how I’ve missed you. You are the very best.
Great seeing you, Sana and Megan, even if briefly!
Today’s plan unfortunately includes some homework. 🙁 Wait, homework? Aren’t I on break? Well… kind of. Sigh. We actually have a policy course for my grad school program (it’s called National Nutrition Issues) that happens over winter break this year — it’s next week on January 4th, 5th, and 6th here in D.C. Convenient that I’m already here, but bummer that it cuts into our break. We also have a bunch of stuff due for the class on the 2nd, so I’m going to try to knock that out today so I don’t have to worry about it last minute. Womp, wompppppp. Oh well. I’ve had a nice couple weeks of relaxing. 🙂 I’m planning on using my computer-on-the-bike trick again this morning to get some of the readings done while getting in a workout, too!
Have a good one!
