Food: Breakfast was coffee and a piece of coffee cake. Lunch was tacquito’s, chips and salsa. Then I had some snack mix and some carrots. Dinner will be chicken and either rice or noodles. And maybe some wine.
Fitness: I went to the gym this morning with the intention of doing speedwork. IT Band said NO WAY. So then I got on the elliptical and got about 2 miles into a workout when a woman got on the machine next to me after apparently bathing in scented lotions and perfumes. I left the elliptical with my nose stuffy and eyes watering. So I stretched, did some foam rolling and was done. But now Michael wants to go to the gym tonight. And I said OK, being supportive wife that I am.
So not only am I NOT avoiding the gym, I am going twice. WAHOO!
AAAHHHHH! I forgot about WIAW. Oh well. There was nothing at all interesting about what I ate yesterday.
Mood: Today is good. Got through my work presentation. Got prepped for tomorrow’s meetings. And am playing tennis tonight, if the rain holds off.
Food: I had 2 Greek twisty cookies and coffee for breakfast. I had a turkey burger with guacamole and sweet potato fries for lunch. With some ranch dressing for dipping. And then the snacking began. Choc chip cookies. Carrots. Snack mix . Ugh.
Fitness: I ran 3 miles this morning and have tennis tonight. I will need ALL of that activity to make up for the snacking. But we will eat after as well.
The mood is good today, but it is likely to go downhill fast. More on that later.
Food: I had a protein bar for breakfast. With coffee of course. Leftover chicken salad, some chips and carrots for lunch. A trail mix bar and an apple as snacks. Tonight I am firing up the grill for a steak and a sweet potato. Maybe some wine. Or a beer. Depends on how bad the mood gets.
Fitness: I walked 4 miles. After a weekend of crappy eating, I didn’t have it in me to run. So I walked. Someone once said there are no such thing as junk miles. I hope she still means it.
I know this is coming out a little late, but so what.
Mood: Started out good. I lost energy around dinnertime. Then rallied and it has improved again. I have ACTUAL work to do for a change. And I was a baking fool today. I got through a coffee cake and peanut butter brownies. And then made the chili (see below).
Food: Breakfast was coffee and a trail mix bar. Lunch was LATE and was 3 thin-sliced pork chops and a sweet potato. Then I made Turkey Chili for dinner. With a few chips. And a brownie. Ok, there was a small piece of Crack Bark, for quality control purposes.
Fitness: This morning I ran 6 miles outside. I didn’t hit my “pace” but I was able to pick it up quite a bit for the last 1.5 miles. And we just walked (casually) 2 miles around the neighborhood. I am TIRED. And sore. The walk was to try and work out some of my soreness from yesterday’s trainer session. It didn’t really work.
Food: Protein bar and coffee for breakfast. Smoothie. Egg beaters and english muffin for lunch. Carrots. Strawberries. Wings and Beer for dinner!
Fitness: Session with Bryan this morning. And while this is NO big example of upper body strength, I managed to do 30 REAL pushups this morning. And that is unbelievable progress for me. No knees. REAL pushups!
And the picture, just for fun, is a toad we saw in St Lucia. This guy had some MEAT to him!
