Today’s extra-long lunch break took me home!
Before digging into my midday meal, I completed an at-home workout while I watched The Bachelor online. Yes, I was 100 percent motivated to work out at home so I could watch the “most dramatic episode ever.”
I am loosely keeping up with this season by checking out episodes here and there online, but since I’m streaming them a day late, I am skipping over a lot. And yet I’m seeing enough to feel less than enamored with Juan Pablo.
SPOILER ALERT: Andi is the jam. What she said about Juan Pablo not asking her any questions about herself is a red flag. When I was in high school, my friend Leah once said you can tell a lot about a person by how much they ask you about you rather than chattering on and on about themselves. It’s something I still notice about people to this day!
While I caught up on The Bachelor, I completed an at home workout that focused on strength training and included jumping jacks to keep my heart rate up.
Sadie watched from the couch which was a dramatic improvement from most of my at-home workouts since she usually prefers to try to get in on the action.
Today she made it her mission to guilt trip me with her sad puppy eyes from her blanket fort on the couch.
Once my workout was finished, I jumped in the shower and then fixed myself lunch. I made a batch of the chickpea salad I shared on the blog last week, but added some shredded chicken to the fresh veggies for a punch of protein.
Now it’s back to work!
P.S. My fellow ice cream fanatics: Have you seen the new Ben & Jerry’s ‘Core’ ice cream flavors? I want in on all of them! (Thanks to Merri for the head’s up on this one!)
