What a day. My brain is completely fried after an exhausting + frustrating 9 hours in the office. I’m so glad that the hubb and I got up and ran this morning, there is no way I would have felt up to it tonight! We ran a lovely 2 miles, with 1/4 mile warm-up and cool-down, for a total of 2-1/2 miles. We’re finally sticking with the weekly mileage in the training program so there will be a bigger difference between our long Saturday runs and our mid-week training runs. We are bumping to 4 days of running per week too, up from 3, which I’m excited about! I did pop my favorite power yoga dvd in the player for 45 minutes of strength training after work, followed by 15 minutes of crunches.
Here’s a quick daily eats recap:
Breakfast: An Ezekiel cinnamon raisin muffin with 1 tbsp almond butter and a banana.
Lunch: A whole wheat pita stuffed with 2 tbsp TJ’s edamame hummus (YUM!), broccoli slaw, yellow bell pepper and cucumber, along with an Oikos blueberry yogurt. This was my first blueberry Oikos experience…I literally got THE LAST OIKOS on the shelf at Harris Teeter. Below the empty shelf was a sign that explained that they wouldn’t be stocking Oikos for a short period due to a manufacturing problem. I guess I owe my Whole Foods a blog apology for ranting about them last week… 😛 Anyway, the blueberry was pretty tasty but I really miss my honey flavor!!!
Snack: A 12oz skim latte from my favorite coffee shop downtown and 1/2 a honeycrisp apple. This apple was really disappointing as all my store-bought apples have been lately, I guess the season is finally over… 😦
Dinner: Baked chicken, roasted veggies (brussels, potatoes + golden beets) and Near East Whole Grain Blends (chicken + garlic).
Dessert: Definitely breaking back into the chocolate covered strawberries in a little bit…
I’m off to do more Christmas prep…we’ll be in Florida in 1 week!!! Yay!!!
