Here it is…my first blog post! After a couple months of regularly reading (and lurking) on several healthy eating and fitness blogs, I’m ready to join the blog world. So, here goes…
Despite a lack of sleep last night, today was a great day. My husband and I woke up to a HUGE thunderstorm around midnight last night, then woke up about an hour and a half later to a call from my husband’s dad that my sister-in-law gave birth to a son! Welcome to the world, Tanner 🙂 We’re planning to go visit them (a 3 hour drive) this weekend.
When my alarm went off at 5 am, I was wide awake and ready to workout. I headed to the gym and got in a great spin class. I love starting my day with a workout because I feel like the first thing I did today was take care of MYSELF. I did something I love first thing and then moved on the rest of my day- what a great feeling!
My lunch was particularly good today, so I’d like to share this chicken salad that I have been loving lately. It packs up really well to take to work for lunch:
Chicken Dijon Salad
1/2 grilled chicken breast (leftover from dinner a few days ago; rotisserie chicken also works very well)
approx. 10 grapes, cut in half
1 stalk celery, chopped
spoonful of plain LF yogurt
big squirt of dijon mustard
sprinkle of ground ginger
Mix it all together and stuff it in a pita. Serves 1.
Sorry, no pictures today – I’ll get some up tomorrow!
