My morning started off rather early. I was in the RUNNING mood since I only managed to get 3 miles in yesterday before CX Worx class…that was not enough to satisfy me. The Runner’s World quote I received in my inbox yesterday motivated the heck out of me!!!
I wanted to make a THRIVE shake before heading to the Y, but I also wanted to enjoy it after my morning workout because it always tastes extra delicious after a TOUGH, sweaty workout. I talked myself into waiting on the shake, but needed a little energy before my workout session.
Pre-Workout Energy: Good Greens Peanut Chocolate Bar (ate 1/2 of it)
I was able to get in FOUR quick miles this morning before heading back to the group exercise room to instruct BodyPUMP 84. By the end of class, I was worn out!
I munched the other half of my Good Greens bar directly after BodyPUMP. In no time after that, I whipped up my THRIVE Shake!!!
Almond Milk I am currently using in my shakes
I worked until around 1 o’clock, then left the Y for a meeting I had scheduled.
Gift from my Sister this past weekend — it is now ‘official’
I went to ‘sign my life away’ on the dotted line for a home today. It is the “project” that I have been talking about the last couple of weeks. It became official today when I had the closing to sign all the documents. It needs some work, but at some point in the future I will have a home of my own to go to each night. I was waiting to enjoy this bottle of wine until I signed the papers to make it official.
Lunch today ~
Winkler’s Salad with Grilled Chicken and Feta Dressing – one of my FAVS!!!
I needed a break from work today and felt like I needed a brief hour to do absolutely nothing. I hardly EVER eat lunch anywhere but at the Y, behind my desk, while working…so today, I changed that. I went to Winkler’s after signing all the paperwork for the home and enjoyed a lunch hour by myself. Some people would HATE to have lunch by themselves…not me. I did not mind it one bit. It was rather enjoyable. It was quiet and I was able to take time to THINK THROUGH & SORT the 100 thoughts I feel like I constantly have running through my head. Sometimes, we just need to STOP, STEP AWAY, and just BE. That is exactly what I did today for an hour – and decided I need to do it more often.
After the late lunch, I was off to gymnastics, then back to the Y to do more work for several hours.
Snack this evening at the Y to hold me over until dinner ~
Organic Pink Lady Apple
Dinner this evening ~
Ami’s Organic Vegetable Soup with Asiago Cheese
1/2 a Wheat Sandwich Thin with Garden Vegetable Sauce & 3 Cheese Blend
I was SO hungry tonight, even after eating dinner. I snacked on a little Peanut Butter (yes, just stuck my finger in the jar and licked it. It is MY peanut butter….only I use it ~ otherwise, I would not do such a thing!)
I also ended up eating…
Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels Crisps – ate not ONE serving, but nearly TWO. YIKES!!!
I think my extra hunger stems from the workout this morning; however, I know I ate WAY MORE than I burned in my lengthy workout this morning. I went over calories today for sure …but, I know I will have slip-ups like this. My GOAL = do better tomorrow!
Keep up your healthy eating habits you have going this week, and your sweaty workouts. Remember…there is always room for improvement!
Until next time ~
