Happy Wednesday! I’m on vacation this week—more like stay-cation. The idea of traveling during my allotted vacation week just seemed too exhausting and expensive, so I’ve been enjoying taking these lovely August days at my own pace here in NYC.
After working a busy Saturday at the hospital, I was so excited to start my week off. Sunday involved sleeping in (if you count 11-8 sleeping in…) and then brunch, beer and a whole bunch of walking.
Monday I had a lot to do (writing projects, cooking projects, life projects…), but I enjoyed begin able to take it at my own speed. I also had time for a pilates class. I love when I can do that because I learn things I can incorporate into solo workouts when I’m not able to get to a group class.
It was also nice not to have to rely on hospital cafeteria food and lab-coat snacks to get me through the day. I don’t know if it was the heat or not being on my feet as much, but I definitely wasn’t as hungry during the day. No complaints, though—I enjoyed some good stuff, and I was happy not to deal with the inevitable low-blood-sugar shakes & headaches.
Snack: a berry & greens smoothie w/ cocoa powder (sounds gross, tasted great)
Snack: Plain yogurt w/ cocoa powder, cut-up frozen lazy-person brownie, berries
