What a much better day than Tuesday. I started out my Wednesday by checking my email on my phone while still in bed. I normally DO NOT do this, but I am glad I did this morning. I had just recently signed up to receive a “Quote of the Day” email from Runner’s World. I had yet to receive an email, until this morning…My first one was in my inbox!!
Reading this had me out of bed in no time. I changed into my workout gear, strapped on my HRM, and hit the treadmill in my basement. I know I mentioned that I usually do not particularly enjoy runs on my treadmill…but today, it was exactly where I wanted to be. It felt AWESOME to run all alone & not have any distractions around me! I jammed to my tunes as I pounded out 7 sweet miles ~ FELT SO GOOD! I honestly did not want to stop.
Me = A Sweaty-mess Post Run…LOVE IT!!
Purple Nails, Purple Sweat Towel, Purple Shirt ~ I was definitely on a PURPLE-Kick this morning!!
After my run…it was BREAKFAST TIME. I had one thing on my mind ~
THRIVE SHAKE!! – Strawberries, Blueberries, Almond Milk
Lunch today ~
Fiesta Gluten-free Tortilla with small slice Grilled Chicken, Greens, Onion, Gouda Smoked Cheese Wedge, Pepper, and a bit-o-BBQ Ranch Sauce
I added a side of Carrots & Hummus for some crunch…and also ended the meal with an un-pictured Banana
By this afternoon around 3:30, my tummy was rumbling again. I had packed all things needed to make a PB + Honey at work, so I whipped one up on a half of a whole grain sandwich thin. Hit the spot!
Earth Balance PB + Steckler Honey = AMAZING Combo!!
I ended up doing workout #2 after I finished up at work. Since I normally do BodyPUMP on Wednesday mornings (but it was cancelled due to weather today), I opted to do a 30-40 minute Upper Body & Core workout in the gym. I did not want to work my legs being that they had worked hard enough this morning. During the workout, I noticed how much stronger my CORE felt ~ Must be the CX Worx & the Yoga. I do believe I will keep those in my weekly workout regimen for now!!!
Post workout eats ~
thinkThin bar ~ I was craving PROTEIN!!
Late Dinner ~
Romaine with Asian Slaw blend, Onion, Pepper, Craisens, 6 Pistachios
Not pictured…2 Homemade PB Powerballs for dessert. My metabolism was revving today. Shew. And the PB cravings were in FULL swing. I got my fix with the sandwich plus the powerballs. I am beginning to think that my “Monitoring of PB Intake” will have to kick back in soon. I have been eating it entirely too much lately.
I hope you all had an awesome HUMP DAY. Thank goodness tomorrow is Thursday. That puts us one day closer to the weekend.
Until next time ~
