On Sunday, after a fabulous brunch with Gretchen, I headed to Trader Joe’s to stock up on healthy eats for the week. I mean, don’t be fooled because I definitely had brunch dessert, but it’s all about balance, right?
I got all the fixins’ for plenty of salads. Apparently I took a before picture but not an after so imagine all the goodies below in four tupperware containers.
I mixed the three bags of lettuce (spinach, romaine, and a mix), 1/2 cup serving of lentils, onion, red pepper, and tomatoes. Prepping makes all the difference. Now my healthy food is convenience food!
Since I was already messing up the kitchen I decided to roast a bunch of things too.
I now have plenty of sweet potatoes for the week but managed to eat the entire bag of broccoli already.
What can I say, I have a knack for it!
Monday was full of ups and downs. The metro was a full on fiasco in the AM which started the week off on a not so great foot. I kind of lost it after 30 minutes of waiting for a train. Once I settled my nerves and made it to work I spent the day looking forward to my evening plans.
I met up with my new blogger BFF’s for a spin class at Revolve DC!
I went in with no expectations as I have taken enough spin class to know it’s either a total hit or miss. By the end of the first song I knew this was my kind of place: loud music, dark room, and lots of motivated people. Our teaching was totally into the class, which makes all the difference in the world.
I burned plenty of calories and had a blast doing so! If you’re local I highly recommend checking out Revolve. Afterward, we took our sweaty selves to Chop’t to refuel the right way.
Salads on salads.
Not a bad way to start a Monday night. I can’t wait to start trying more fitness classes around DC. I am not sure why I haven’t started sooner but it was seriously a blast!
Question: What is your favorite salad combination?
