Monday already?! How is that possible?! Mondays always feel especially intense because we have a big staff meeting in the morning where we basically discuss every single client and go over every single thing we are working on and what we plan to work on in the future. Always fun!! Luckily, yogurt messes help me get through 🙂

For lunch I had a random bunch of food I grabbed on the way out the door — a serving of breaded eggplant, a serving of polenta, and some mixed veggies. It was decently tasty and filling. I need some better lunch ingredients though, stat!

I had a PB Fiber One bar for a snack in the afternoon, my favorite flavor.

After work I meant to go to the gym but ended up detouring for a few groceries. I found some PB & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams! I have been on the lookout for this stuff so I had to get it. Of course, I opened the jar and had a spoonful as soon as I walked in the door. Yum! It wasn’t quite as chocolate-tasting as I had hoped (I think I was crossing my fingers that it would taste like a dark chocolate bar with nuts, honestly), but I can’t wait to give it a few more tests 🙂

I did my shredding before dinner, day #4 down for the count! I really need to keep up with the gym though. I don’t want for this to totally replace my regular workouts! Then Kate came over to celebrate…she just got cast in a new Showtime 6-part mini series!!!!!! YAY KATIEKINS!!!!!! Of course the good news called for some bubbly. Cheers!

We also got a kickass pizza, but I was good and had some broccoli first.

With that out of the way, I moved on to the good stuff! Kate ordered from Cheebo, which I had never had before, but apparently they use all organic and natural ingredients.  Our pizza had mushrooms, olives and pesto on top. So good! The pieces were somewhat small which just means more to munch!!  I had two squares plus this corner piece while watching Gossip Girls. Anyone else not loving these story lines right now?! Hopefully good ole Georgina will stir up some trouble.

Right now I am dealing with a little dramalama of my own…I just want to get into bed! Here are my 3s for y’all…

Three Things for Monday

  1. Brought lunch from home even though I have ZERO good lunch food
  2. Didn’t eat the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies we had at the office today
  3. Ate some broccoli before my pizza. Yay for greenery!

About an hour before I left work, I decided to definitely stop by the gym, so I tried a Lemon Larabar for a little workout boost. I liked it! The lemon flavor wasn’t too overpowering which was nice. I think I would stick with Key Lime though if I wanna go citrus.

I got in 45 minutes on the elliptical before heading home. For dinner, I decided to make a Trader Joe’s Chile Lime Chicken Burger. If you have never had these, I definitely recommend them!! Since these cook at broil, I decided to make a one-pan meal and make brussel sprouts and polenta at the same time.  I’ve never cooked these on broil before but everything turned out perfect! The polenta was especially crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, which I loved.

For dessert it was ice cream part deux! I had my leftovers from last night plus some strawberries and sprinkles.

I still wanted a little extra sweet, so I dug into two dozen of these cute vanilla mini meringues from Trader Joe’s. At only one calorie each, who can resist 🙂

I love desserts. Can you guys tell?!
