I haven’t done one of these in so long! Today I’m linking up with Jen over on Meghan‘s blog to bring you what I normally eat during my week days now. If you didn’t read or realize I’ve been missing a lot more I did get a new job and you can read about it here. That being said it means my ways of eating during the day have greatly changed!
Breakfast is almost always a hard boiled egg before I go to the gym. A punch of protein and the most complete food I know.
I don’t have an office anymore which means that most of my food is ate in my car while driving or at an account. This can lead to very rich food days or it can lead to me starving and pulling over to get a snack from my food bag. The most wonderful part I think is when I eat lunch in my car with all the windows open and the sun shining.
Lunch at an account that makes the best red cabbage slaw! I was craving vegetables this day because the day before I had eaten a cheeseburger. All about balance!
It gets hard though, food not prepared at home sometimes can add up quickly and isn’t always the healthiest. The thing I’m learning is balance is always the best. If I have a heavy day just balance it out the next day with a vegetable forward day and always try to squeeze some gym time in.
New to me popcorn after a heavy lunch I only needed a light dinner to be satisfied.
The gym is my new best friend, it makes me feel amazing every morning and starts my day off on the right foot. So even if the rest of the day isn’t the healtiest I know I’ve done one thing in the morning positive.
One of my accounts is Whole Foods. If you are a long time reader you know my food crush with this store. I have been LOVING their salad bar and getting dinner for that night as a new routine! My wallet hasn’t though. Oh well food shouldn’t be cheap!
Oh my gosh you guys, I cannot believe that Sean and I have been together for two years!
Wait, what did she just say her boyfriends name?! Yes my friends I did, his name is Sean. Why am I sharing his name now? Well we met at the office and worked in the same office for the majority of our relationship. With my new role we no longer work together in the same space. Also most of the office knows we are together so forget the secrets! Here are a few pictures of us through the past two years.
I know one of his coworkers found this blog so I’m sure he is just thrilled to see all these pictures as well. (Enjoy Shaun!)
So two years ago this is where it all started. Then last year this is what we did. I decided that this year I would plan what we did for our second anniversary. I wanted it to be special and I wanted him to be surprised so I planned a night away in Kennebunkport, ME. We biked through the town last year and loved it so I knew we would love staying there for a night. I managed to keep it a surprise until we were about an hour into our trip and I had to tell him where to go.
We checked in to an awesome hotel right in the center of the small town and then both starving went out to get some food right away.
We decided to go to a place called Federal Jack’s which is actually where Shipyard Beer was started. It is still a brewpub and only serves what they brew downstairs. I loved how they paired their menu with beers! I was really craving a sour beer or a saison but Maine is all about their Lagers and Ales so I was SOL. After we had full bellies we then went and walked around town. It was really windy so we thought we would go to a place that was labeled as “The Shops”. We pulled into the parking lot and saw this.
Yes you are seeing that correctly, the shops were a grocery store. So with that as a fail we decided to drive to the beach.
If you look close at the waves you can see the spray coming off. It was WINDY. So beautiful but the wind made the sand whip and made me want to observe in the car. We then went back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. I made reservations at On The Marsh Bistro and would totally suggest you dining there if you are in the area. When they found out it was our anniversary they gave us some Champagne and congratulated us. The food was really great but the service just made the place a little extra special. I snagged a picture as we were leaving but there was a car behind us so it is a little blurry, sorry!
The next morning I begged him to go on a bike ride with me and he obliged, we took off along the coast and I couldn’t get enough of the scenery and just being in the moment. I did snag a few pictures though.
After biking we went and got some lunch and then hit the road. It was a perfect weekend getaway and a great way to celebrate two years. I love this man so much and cannot wait to see what the future holds for us.
