It’s a very dreary day here in Kansas. The bright side (haha), is that the rain/mist seems to have eliminated the allergens in the air temporarily. I just now sneezed for the first time today at 4:30! That’s a record.
Yesterday was pretty successful overall for meals and exercise. I am super sore today to prove it.
What I ate:
Breakfast: I was running late for class so I made a fruit smoothie to-go: banana, strawberries, blackberries, spinach, almond milk, and orange juice.
Lunch: I made a tasty spinach salad with cucumber slices, strawberries, almond slices, feta, and raspberry vinaigrette. Daniel made me two scrambled eggs as well for a little protein.
Later before he went to work he sweetly drove me to Starbucks so I could get a Grande Soy Iced Chai Latte and he could get his much needed Americano. Apparently the non-drowsy allergy medication I gave him was making him rather drowsy.
For my workout I tried to mix it up a bit. I found suggestions online for Blogilates so I decided to give her videos ago. She has a youtube channel and blog with some really great workouts! I did this video first:
At the end she recommends other videos to go along with it. I guess it’s part of her monthly schedule she has set up on her site. So I followed along with all of them except the last one for the day. My butt was on fire and I sure as hell wasn’t doing another butt video especially when it’s called “Super Butt Workout!” They are definitely some great videos though. Here’s the page with the videos I followed from Blogilates.
After that I decided to get my run on. I went 2.5 miles again. This time I decided to track it with Endomondo on my phone but I started it a little before I started running and stopped it during my walking/cool down so it doesn’t quite show my full distance. At the end of my runs I like to pick up the pace, as you can see by my max speed. 5:38 woot woot!
After my run, I refueled with a chocolate protein shake from Shakeology by blending the protein powder with a banana and some almond milk.
Dinner: I made a stir fry with white rice, cucumber, carrots, yellow squash, onion, and spinach. For flavor I added soy and teriyaki sauce. You can find my super easy stir fry recipe here.
So I feel pretty accomplished about yesterday! Hopefully I can make good decisions today too. Though I may cut out running since it’s chilly and misting still. We’ll see!
