Monday. Here and gone – one word: quick.
My day started out with a 4:15 wake-up call. Yikes! BodyPUMP started at 5 o’clock this morning. I had to switch the morning instructor classes today due to an evening Y commitment. The ladies in the morning class did AWESOME! We got in one tough strength training session to start the day.
After BodyPUMP, I made a post-workout THRIVE Shake and then ventured into the Wellness Center to polish off my morning workout with the inner/outer thigh + the hamstring machines…the two areas that are not focused on in a BP class.
Mid-morning snack (after waking up from a 45 minute powernap) ~
Cracked Wheat toast with Earth Balance PB, bit-o-Agave + Banana
I got back to work around 11 today, since I knew I would not be leaving there until 8 or so this evening. It was a rather LONG day at the Y…but a quick day. I will say one thing, I could tell I had done BodyPUMP this morning. I was EXTRA hungry the ENTIRE day. I felt like I could have eaten a HOUSE (not really, but you get my point, yeah?) I did eat way more today than I have in a long time.
Here goes the rest of my eats:
Around noon or so, I snacked on Salt & Pepper Pistachios (about 1 serving worth) and a Sweet Tater I had made last night and packed in my lunch box.
Sweet Tater ~ so darn good!
At 3:30 this afternoon, I needed another meal. I opted for some greens this go round. I pulled out the salad I had packed & enjoyed every bite! I cannot get enough of my salads. I crave them almost daily!!
Baby Kale, Asian Slaw Blend, Green Onions, Asiago Cheese, Slivered Almonds, Craisens & Cracked Pepper
The salad hit. the. spot. and kept me satisfied for a while. Around 7 o’clock, I needed a snack. I went for the last thing I had packed in my lunch box. Some Baby Carrots & Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. I also ate a Zone Bar: Mint Chocolate out of my gym bag. I am telling you…my hunger was crazy out of control today!
Once I got home from the Y, I ate more…
A Bowl of Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
One Plain Multi-Grain Sandwich Thin (ate it with my soup)
Fresh Kiwi ~ YUM!
As if this rather large consumption of food were not enough…I also managed to sneak in a few Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzel Thins (from a fresh, new bag at our house) to end the evening.
Not sure what my problem was today, but I sure hope this hunger is NOT present tomorrow. Holy Moly. I am blaming it all on the AWESOME sweat session at 5AM this morning.
How were your Monday eating habits? I am hoping you did not eat as much as me!
Until next time ~
