Had a super fun workout today courtesy of Claire and I met another tumblr, Jbizzle!
It made me wish I could run longer - I haven’t done more than 30 minutes running in a while! But I did do a little over an hour on the elliptical (thanks in part to getting caught up in an episode of Kitchen Cousins).
Thus far I liked what I saw at FFC - big, super clean, friendly staff. If Diego (and am I totally insane, but I thought he was cute? Claire, Jessica?) comes to my show on Monday as he said he might, I am sold on that place. It would be nice to have a gym so close to me, I could go in the morning and still get ready at home since it’s only 2 blocks away.
Today I actually cooked chicken and created a tasty and emotionally satisfying (I know no other way to describe it) chicken pesto sandwich with feta. It’s funny - feta and pesto are so decadent, but a little reallly goes a long way. With each I ended up splitting the portion size in half and I think I could go with even less next time. The total for both was 5 points on Weight Watchers and well worth it from a taste perspective. Chicken breast was thin sliced, cooked plain with a tiny bit of olive oil, so that was three. I put it on some toasted sourdough (I made sure said bread had very few ingredients - natural and non-processed) and it was a really satisfying lunch. I tend to eat my heaviest meal at lunch because that is when I am hungriest.
Also - satisfying dessert discovery for summer - low fat ice cream in a cone. The cones are super tiny so putting a small serving makes it seems like you’re eating a ton. The cones are 15 calories and basically just crunchy air. Crunchy air that reminds me of my childhood and makes the whole ice cream experience a celebration.
Too hot to run outside+guest passes to my gym=workout with Jbizzle and Kristin.
[Also, I have a few more three day guest passes if any locals want to use my gym (or any other FFC locations… West Loop has a rooftop pool, just saying)].
