Today, no exception, I picked up my hardworking husband and hit that post-work wall. I was grumpy. But as we stopped at Trader Joe's, I realized it was probably because I didn't work out the previous day and hadn't worked out yet today. So I started mentally preparing for a sweat session and convinced myself that just 45 minutes of hard work in the gym would seriously change my mood.
Done and done.
Terry and I went to the gym together and tackled biceps and back for weights and then a very quick HIIT workout. We didn't have a lot of time, and I'm still feeling sorta-kinda-might-be-getting-sick, but I am thrilled that I got to work out today. We were still done, showered, and eating dinner by 7:30! Not bad at all.
Here's what we did:
And here are some eats for the day!
Breakfast: Banana, peanut butter, cinnamon, and honey "sandwich" with tea
Lunch (at 10:45, because I knew I wouldn't have time to microwave my lunch during lunch): leftover shepherd's pie from Monday night
Afternoon snack, around 3 pm: about 3/4 cup grapes, 1/2 cup carrots, and a small peach
Evening snack while cooking: about 10 woven wheats with Spinach & Kale dip from Trader Joe's
Dinner: pepperoni pasta! (We used green and red bell peppers, because that's what we had on hand) with cabernet
Dessert: pumpkin banana bread from yesterday, plus a handful of Pretzel M&Ms.

What's your favorite way to snap out of a grumpy mood?
Nothing beats a good workout for me, but a night out with friends does the trick, too!
