Artichokes and Tomato Salad

Hi everyone, happy Friday. Well I should say happy rain day. It has rained all day, but it didn’t stop me having a good day. Started the day at the gym with some interval training. I’m trying to mix up my training at the gym. I sometimes get in a rut of doing the same thing, I love spinning and running but I need to incorporate more weight training. I find this difficult because I’m not sure I know what I’m doing. I try to watch the trainers in the gym and what they do with their clients and try the same things. Having a trainer is just not in my budget, but one can try their best without one.

For lunch I had this great salad with a lot of my favorite ingredients, avocado, olives and artichokes. I used canned artichokes in this salad, not the ones marinated in oil because there is oil in the salad dressing. I used stuffed manzanilla olives but other varieties can be used.
