This morning Brian and I set our alarms for 5:45 to get up for a mid-week training jog. I got out of bed, brushed my teeth and put in my contacts, and then crawled right back in bed because it was SO COLD!!! Argh. We agreed that we would bring our workout clothes with us to work so that we can go for a jog downtown immediately after work. It will still be pitch black but maybe it won’t be as frigid…. How do you handle workouts in the cold? And I mean COLD…under 35*. And I don’t have a gym membership… 😦
Once I finally got up the nerve to get back out of bed I put together a quick breakfast. 1/2 a whole wheat bagel with 1 tbsp almond butter and 1/2 a banana on top. I ate the rest of the banana on the side.
For lunch I made a veggie wrap with my new roasted red pepper hummus!!! So excited to try this new brand and new flavor. I also decided to beef up my wrap a bit with some black beans. I’ve noticed in my calorie tracking (yes I track, more on that later) that I’m not getting a great balance of carbs to protein, so I’m going to make a conscious effort to sneak more veggie protein in when I can. I’m only eating meat about once a week these days, so I need to make sure I’m getting enough protein from other sources. Today’s wrap includes:
- 8″ whole wheat tortilla
- 2 tbsp roasted red pepper hummus
- 1/4 cup black beans
- arugula lettuce mix
- red bell pepper
- broccoli sprouts
And a pink lady apple on the side…
And I packed a new flavor (for me) of Clif Nectar…dark chocolate walnut, for an afternoon pre-run snack.
I have the office all to myself today! My boss and one other co-worker are in D.C. checking on some of our jobs, so I’m enjoying playing whatever music I feel like! It’ll be a great day for lots of productivity without distraction…woohoo! 🙂
