Wednesday ~ Half-Way Day!!

The day started out with a THRIVE Shake.  I drank half of it on my way to the Y.  Saved the other half for after the morning exercise session.  I was able to run a quick 1.75 miles on the treadmill before teaching BodyPUMP this morning.  It was a short-lived run, but better than nothing.  And BodyPUMP was AWESOME!! A great strength workout to start my Wednesday.  We all ROCKED IT.

Mid-Morning Snack today was Carrots and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus!  LOVE this Hummus.  Last time I stopped into the store to pick some up, I just went ahead and grabbed TWO.  Now I have one on back-up!

Lunch rolled around about 2 o’clock this afternoon.  It was nothing new.  But a lunch that I am completely hooked on right now!

Asian Blend sure does work wonders on a salad.  It is hard for me to eat a salad without it these days.  After my delicious salad, I munched on an Apple.

I get to leave the Y at 3 on Wednesdays to teach little gymnasts how to flip.  I love Wednesday afternoons with the little girls!!  Between the two gymnastic classes that I help with I have about a 45 minute break – I used my time wisely tonight! I drove back to the Y (since it is only a couple minutes away!) and hopped on a treadmill.  I was able to get in another little run – 2.5 miles tonight.  For a total of a bit over 4 for the day…I’ll take that. 

good one

On the agenda tonight after gymnastics was dinner with a friend from the Y.  We decided to meet at Wings-n-Rings, which ended up being a great decision.  Why?  Because I needed a tasty glass of wine tonight to unwind.  This allowed me to enjoy one with my dinner.  Thank Goodness!!

Hit. The. Spot. Exactly what I needed to finish off my Wednesday.

My Wings-n-Rings Dinner choice this evening:

Grilled Chicken Wrap in Wheat Tortilla with Sweet & Hot BBQ Sauce + Steamed Broccoli

Dinner was delicious – sometimes it is nice to switch it up and get out of my routine of eating the foods that I always have on hand in my fridge.  I believe it was a rather healthy option…and tasty, too!

When I got home, I munched on just a few of these scrumptious sweet things!

Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzel Thins…all things in MODERATION, yes?!

I hope you all had an AWESOME Wednesday.  Keep up the healthy eating habits and be sure to get in a sweaty workout session before Friday!  Until today, my week had been lacking cardio.  I was so ready to hit the treadmill.  I am contemplating whether I will RUN in the morning again or take Yoga.  Both sound so good!! Decisions, decisions.  What will your workout be on Thursday?

Until next time ~
