Howdy! I can't believe April is more than half over. This is a bit of a tough month for me with the anniversary of my mom's passing and some other things. It's left me with little desire to do anything other than work, workout, eat, snuggle with Winnie and sleep as much as possible. Now that the sun is shining and I've got some fun things on the horizon, my mood is beginning to pick up a bit. Plus, I've got a fun giveaway for you today so be sure to read this post all the way through!
I used to absolutely dread Passover. DREAD. I had no idea how to live a grain-free lifestyle and always said, "I'm going to keep it this year!" and I'd inevitably cave somewhere between days 3 and 5. Nowadays keeping Passover is a breeze!
I took these photos last Wednesday. I woke up around 6 for my first session. I had a little bit of water before I left home, but no food. A few hours later, I was done with my morning clients and ravenous! It was the perfect iced coffee day, warm and breezy out, but I needed something a little more substantial so I opted for an iced soy latte.
I got home and prayed Winnie would stay put while I ate a quick breakfast of Greek yogurt, berries and Paleonola. She loves when I have yogurt because I let her lick the remains of the bowl. I ate, we headed out and I sipped my latte on our walk.
After we got home from our walk/the pet store (#damnpetsareexpensive) Winnie played with her new toy (<--- highly recommend if you have a pup who loves to chew on things...) while I got some things done. At noon I crated her and I headed to the gym.
I met Perri and we took an indoor cycling class with a new-to-me instructor who was AWESOME. I didn't have a mid-morning snack and class really beat the crap out of me (I'm still a little shaky on my left ankle - especially when out of the saddle for long periods of time) so I was MORE than ready for lunch afterward!
I needed something on the quick side, so we went to Dishes and made salads. I love it there. So good!
I ran home to spend some time with Winnie before heading back to work for the rest of the day. The weather was nice so I grabbed a piece of homemade matza bark (white chocolate with crushed pistachio), leashed her up and we went to the park.
When we got home I had just enough time to shower and freshen up before heading back to work for my last four clients of the day! Knowing I wouldn't eat dinner until about 9:00, I snacked on a Perfect Bar between sessions.
I came home hungry (shocker) and cooked up a quick dinner of a chicken sausage, one whole egg, and one egg white. I heated up some roasted veggies I made leftover from Seder on the side.
Now for the giveaway!
NDX is an all-natural, Non-GMO vitamin and supplement company that I'm client and fan of. I asked them if they'd be interested in doing a giveaway for you wonderful folks and they kind enough to send me a bottle of their Green Detox as well as a bottle of their Fiber DX to share with one lucky reader! Ben and I take (and love!) their Deep Sleep gummies, so I'm excited to share these products with one of you. I will also be throwing a handful of other surprise goodies into the package, so one of you is definitely in for a real treat!
