Baked Chicken and Asparagus

Hello Friends!

Today felt like a Monday wrapped in a Wednesday on a Sunday night and I just couldn‘t figure out why I was feeling so off.

The best way to explain today would be by quoting myself.

Once a week we have a corporate department meeting with every HR division in the company present via Skype. Everyone was commenting on how weird the day felt and I very much so agreed.

So, in front of my the entire company, including the President and VP of Administration I proudly stated;

“Today really does feel like the strangest Friday!”

Everyone stared at me blankly, then burst out laughing. A coworker near me looked at me with concern and informed me that it was, in fact, Thursday.

And that’s how my whole day went. (I should probably mention I embarrassingly made this statement later on and was, again, corrected by the same coworker with even more concern. I acted like I was joking..)

I ran late to work this morning.

I didn’t get as much done today as I had hoped.

I missed an online webinar due to a time difference.

I didn’t get to seem Derrick before he left for his night shift.

I tried to take Lilly for a walk, we didn’t get far.

My workout was challenging but I didn’t really challenge myself.

However, my absolute favorite part of today was aย  20 minute yoga flow I did before getting ready for bed. Some days, yoga is the only answer, I swear!

Back to the workout.

It was a fully body workout I did twice through with a quick 15 minute HIIT cardio workout. Like I said before, it was definitely challenging I just wasn’t in the right mindset for this sort of workout!

Listening to body cues is incredibly important for fitness progress. Because my usual rest day is on Fridays I tried to push a workout my body needed a break from today which was not as beneficial as it could have been. Next time I will listen to my body and when I feel I should rest, I will do just that ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow I will start the day with a longer yoga flow before work so I can come home in the evening and relax with the pup!

The menu tonight was light and quick and perfect for an off Thursday night. I made a delicious baked lemon garlic chicken and asparagus dish that hit the spot! I made enough of it to enjoy for lunch tomorrow with some brown rice as well. I am already excited for tomorrow afternoon!


What do you do to beat the slug on your ‘off’ days?
