That Pesky To Do List
Sorry for the disappearing act – I was in quite a funky mood on Monday … I guess a lot of things are finally setting in. Thanks to the boyfriend for a hibachi dinner to lift my spirits.
With a laid back Monday I had that ever-present to do list to attend to.
The day included a trip to the gym, some grocery shopping, researching at the library, and some kitchen adventures with Live Fit Recipes from Jamie Eason.
Eats were pretty clean throughout the day with a focus on refueling my body after starting the 2nd stage in NROLW (and I can definitely feel it especially in the bum)
But after a dinner of lentil soup and chicken snacking set in and in a big way… I think night time snacking especially when Im feeling stressed is going to be an issue I need to tackle.
Today started off a little later than I wanted and with a scratchy throat I definitely didn’t want. I grabbed a banana on my way to the gym to tackle a 5 mile tempo run but quickly went back home because the place was absolutely packed.
With a combination of sore muscles, scratchy sore throat, and lack of motivation that 5 miles quickly turned to 2… I WILL finish out the rest of the run after lunch.
At the point the stomach was growling so next up was breakfast: some oats with chocoalte protein powder and almond butter (the best reese’s substitute ever!) and some TJ’s vanilla cinnamon tea (just what I needed to soothe my throat)
Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! Only 4 more days til Christmas!
Anybody else break up their workouts? I feel like I couldn’t have finished the run strong but I still want to get the miles in so I figured why not – we’ll see how it goes.
