Good Habits are Forming

by Nicci on 11/16/2009

Good habits are forming with sticking to a schedule for work and life in general.  I’m going strong with all my work outs and running. I pulled out my trusty crock pot to make dinner in advance last night.  This way I have time for a work out, Old Navy stop and laundry.  I’ve also decided to cook and bake more b/c I have been slacking in those categories.

Breakfast was another Amazing Grass smoothie on the go…

Fruit Leather to help curb my growling  tummy before lunch.

Afternoon Sweat Session in my office:

  • 30 crunches
  • 30 push-ups
  • 10 very hard planks held for 30 seconds

A yummy salad courtesy of Chris from last night, he brought it home from Buffalo Wild Wings. Yay, he went again…loves the wings and football.

I added the veggie patty for extra filling.

Love your weekly goals. I need to drink more water and am over excited about trying some new recipes.

Good for you being proactive and thinking ahead. That always leaves you prepared! I need to be more like that! LOL

GOOD LUCK on forming your new “habits”!!! I know it can be difficult but you can do it if you put your mind to it……..believe me! I myself work on the Drinking More Water everyday. I bought a new fancy water bottle when I picked up my race packet last week and take it with me everywhere now……LOVE IT! I also always grab a glass of water 1st thing in the morning when I get to work and put it next it in plain site on my desk so I remember to drink up. =)

man I just couldn’t get on the green grass wagon. I’m enjoying my smoothies more without that

Katie November 17, 2009 at 6:59 am

I’m so impressed with your office workout!

Melissa November 17, 2009 at 6:37 am

I like your goals! Especially the one that says try a new recipe. Oh and tasty looking salad!

diana(mymarblerye) November 17, 2009 at 5:50 am

Planning ahead is always a great thing! How is the amazing grass?

Becca November 17, 2009 at 4:56 am

Wow, that veggie pattie looks to die for!!
What do you like to mix with your Amazing Grass? I am looking for more ideas.

Also, I need to drink more water too! I know all the benefits of it, so why is it so hard for me to do!?

Nicci November 17, 2009 at 6:39 am

I mixed a mango juice, almond milk, banana and ice witht he amazing grass.

Nicole November 16, 2009 at 10:24 pm

Too funny! I had the exact same lunch on Sunday – a small garden salad with a veggie patty on top. My husband had a cheeseburger with mushroom and bacon with a side of fries. HAHAHA! Don’t worry, I had me a few fries ;) I hope you are having a great start to your week!

That veggie patty looks really good – better than the ones I have tried. Great idea to put it on a salad!

molls November 16, 2009 at 7:22 pm

i love how you make weekly goals for yourself :)

Lauren @ Eater Not a Runner November 16, 2009 at 6:20 pm

I’m with you on the drink more water one!

fittingbackin November 16, 2009 at 6:14 pm

Yummy! Smart to add that veggie patty on! I need to pop over to Old Navy soon – last time i went I had great luck!

Running for a Cause November 16, 2009 at 6:11 pm

I have never been to Buffalo Wild Wings but the salad looks great. Good idea to add some meat on top to help fill you up. Planks are always tough but well worth it, keep up the good work.
Zevia I have tried and it is a good alternative if you are having trouble getting away from sodas.

Meredith (Pursuing Balance) November 16, 2009 at 6:05 pm

I like veggie patties on salads too! :)
