Is it seriously Sunday night already? OMG…where do the weekends go?
Today I set my wake-up call (aka = alarm) for 6:45 ~ earlier than normal for being Sunday. I needed to get in my exercise before the day started, since I knew it was going to be pretty well booked full from church on. Did I want to get up? No. But did I want to get a workout in today? Yes. So, I had only one choice. Get up & get it done.
I got the Y around 7:30 and pounded out a little over FIVE good miles on the treadmill to start my day. The first three were in my own company, since no one else had ventured in for a workout yet. It was nice to have the whole gym to myself!
I showered at the Y and left from there for church. Before leaving for CCJ, I whipped up a post-run breakfast THRIVE Shake that tasted A-MAZING!
Post-Run THRIVE Shake. YUM.
The morning could not get much better since CCJ followed right directly after the RUN. Two of my favorites, back-to-back.
After church was a trip to Home Depot to purchase project supplies. On the way, I munched on a Zone Perfect Bar: Mint Chocolate flavored.
I picked up several items that I needed for this afternoon. I was able to get everything I went for and make it back to the Y by 1 o’clock – just in time to weigh-in individuals who are participating in the Y Weight Loss Challenge. They all ROCKED it today! I was SO IMPRESSED with everyone’s progress!!
When I left the Y, I snacked on Salt & Pepper Pistachios (that I keep in my gym bag) on my way to CVS to pick up more Salt & Pepper Pistachios because they are on SPECIAL this week! Cha-Ching!!
S& P Pistachios ~ one of my afternoon snacks
The remainder of the afternoon and early evening was spent working on the project. While working, I managed to snack on a Banana, 1/2 of an Apple, and just a few Pita Chips. – what can I say…hard work makes you hungry!
Dinner this evening ~
Greens with Asian Slaw, Green Onion, Reserve Blend Cheese, Pepper, Craisens
Grilled Chicken Wonton (baked) x 2
Alamos Malbec x 2 (much needed)
Dinner tasted delicious because I was quite hungry by the time I got it ready at 7:30 this evening. I sipped on a glass of wine while making the wontons and salads, then decided to have another with dinner. It was hitting the spot tonight.
I cannot believe tomorrow is Monday. Goodness, I am so not ready for that. We best be thinking of our fitness + nutrition goals for this week. Get them down on paper or in your iphone notepad before you hit the sack tonight, so you can refer back to them this week! I think I will make a 7.5 or 8 mile run one of my fitness goals for the week. Any possibility I will be able to do that outdoors?…highly unlikely. Still too cold for me. I also want to be sure and get in a kick-a$% TRX strength session. What will your goals be?! Get to thinking.
Hope you all had an AWESOME weekend.
Until next time ~
