Rest & recovery...

Thursday Recap:

Well, there might have been a reason for my 'off-day' on Wednesday, since I woke up Thursday morning feeling slightly under the weather and just lousy enough to feel beat all day.  So my indecisive day was either my body gearin up for a bit of a storm   ...OR the Taco Bell did me no favors and helped bring on the slight ear & throat acheJ  Who knowsJ  Either way, here's how a day of recovery on all aspects played out...

Breakfast: Almond meal/flax pancake with peanut butter and syrup
Knew I needed something filling for shopping, shopping and more shoppingJ  This held me over right through 4 stores of errandsJ

Lunch:  Saladworks
Another lunch at Saladworks, this time making my own combo with cucumbers, broccoli, chicken, avocado & cheddar.  PACKED with greens but still a few little treats snuck inJ  And I did enjoy the wheat roll since Katie was too busy with her own lunch to try and steal it...J
She deemed the Italian wedding soup DE-LICIOUS!

And since I felt under the weather, Scott whipped up our ole favorite recipe of mini meatballs, carrots, peas & gnocchi.  Nature's medicine AND good for the soulJ 

Dessert:  Nutella-stuffed blondie 
Even though yesterday was a pretty good 'recovery day' after Wednesday's craveday, my sweet tooth was still calling after dinner (all this week, actually.  Just one of them weeks, I guess).  I was REALLY excited when I remembered my friend had left these blondies she had made from last week's wine & cheese party.  I used her recommendation of heating it in the microwave for 30 seconds and enjoyed decadent every bite.  Swooooooooooon!

And unfortunately, I didn't get back into the exercise swing yesterday.  I figured it was WISER to let my body relax and recover for the day.  And it might have just been the right choice since I woke up today NOT feeling worse...and I'll take thatJ  Debating today whether I should rest for another day or squeak in a quick 30 minute walk, especially since it's going to be a pretty big CELEBRATION weekendJ  Definitely putting my usual Power yoga on hold for the day though, since I think head/sinus issues + downward dog is NOT a happy combo.  We'll see how today goes.

Either way, the entire day is just a hold over to getting the weekend started!  I'm not sure if I'll be back online Monday or Tuesday since Katie's actual birthday is Monday and we're plannin on celebrating from start to finish...and with LOTS of treats, of courseJ

Hope you guys have a great weekend!  Enjoy!
