Oh, what a (Thurs) Day!
The morning started off with a 6 o’clock wake-up call. Today was a RUNday, and I wanted to rise and shine early to get it complete before I started my day. My game-plan was 5 miles on the ‘dreadmill’ …however, I was feeling pretty good this morning, so ended up pounding out 6.5 sweet, sweaty miles instead!
KT’s Post-run eats:
Thrive Shake with Unsweetened Almond Milk, Strawberries & Blurbs, & Strawberry Activia Yogurt
The shake was delicious. I love when I get to enjoy one after a run ~ it always tastes extra yummy!
I also managed to fit in POWER YOGA this morning after my run…and it felt SO GOOD! I had missed class on Tuesday morning, so I was itching to get back on the mat and just Let It Go.
Yoga hit. the. spot. ~ A great stretch session
It was down to business after yoga. I worked the remainder of the day, until quitting time at 5.
Lunch at work (I ate at my desk; and, I was able to munch nice and loud because no one was around to hear me today!) ~
Baby Kale mix + Asian Slaw Blend, Asiago Cheese, Pepper, Walnuts, and Craisens
I snacked on some Pistachios (Salt & Pepper flavor, of course) shortly after munching on my salad. Around 4 o’clock, I pulled out a thinkThin bar from my gym bag to take care of my hunger before the evening workout.
I was so cold by the time I got off work, I had to get warm before teaching CX. I decided on the Lateral Elliptical so I could listen to my CX music and review the tracks before teaching class. I got in a good 30 minutes ~ when I was finished, my legs (and inner thighs) were sore and tired! CX class followed. I was ready to get in a good core workout! Tomorrow morning, I may attempt to do the new CX Release 14, or RUN. Not sure which yet.
Eggs + Roasted Fresh Broccoli + Rice
This meal was AWESOME. It tasted SO GOOD!! It was 3 eggs scrambled (I used one yolk and pitched the other two) topped with Asiago cheese and pepper. The rice was from the Swans man (found it in our freezer). I sautéed it on the stove top using a bit of EVOO. One cup had 150 calories and very little fat. Not bad, not bad. The fresh roasted broccoli ~ delish.
The rest of the evening, I snacked on this ~
Homemade PB + Chocolate Chip Granola (too tasty!)
I made this granola last night (the reason why I lacked a blog post yesterday). Now, I wish I would not have. Cannot stop eating it!!!
KT’s “Thrown Together” Granola Recipe:
* 1 cup natural PB (I use Earth Balance, or Skippy Natural…or mixture of both)
* 1/2 cup Agave or Locally Grown Honey
* 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
* 1/4 cup Crushed Flax Seeds
* 1 1/4 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
* 1 1/4 cup Rice Crispies
* 1 1/4 cup Special K Granola with a bit of Honey
* 2 tsp. Vanilla
* 1 Tbsp. EVOO
* 1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
Mix all of this together and put on flat sheet (I would put it on aluminum foil…makes for easy clean-up) . Set oven at 250 degrees and bake for approximately 40 – 60 minutes, stirring it about every 10 minutes.
Hard to believe Thursday is here and gone. Tomorrow is Friday! Can I get a ‘Whoop Whoop!!’ ?
I hope you all managed to get in a sweaty workout today and made your eating choices healthy ones. Mine were healthy…minus the overload of granola. Oops!
Until next time ~
