Tuesday. LONG DAY.
Began with a 3:30am WAKE-UP call. Yuck. I had to be at the Y around 4:15 this morning.
I held off on Breakfast as long as I could…until 6:30ish ~
THRIVE Shake!! Yum.
Mid-morning snack (was needed at 10 o’clock this morning) ~
Good Greens Bar ~ Chocolate Peanut Butter (my favorite!!)
Once I closed up shop at work (since I took the opening shift, I finished up round one between 10:30-11 this morning), I hit the treadmill. I knew I had to do it before I left the Y, otherwise I would get too tired & unmotivated.
I managed 7 miles today (that was unplanned ~ I had intentions of completing 4). First mile was the warm-up (since my ankle has to get pretty warm before it functions properly), last mile was the cool-down, and the 5 miles in between were SWEET, SWEATY, and QUICK!! They felt AWESOME! The best part…I could feel improvement. With all my practice, the running is finally making progress.
Post-run eats (why you do NOT go home hungry to something sitting out on the cabinet that is not healthy!!) ~
A Piece (that whole part missing was NOT my piece!…LOL) of Chocolate Mint ‘Grasshopper’ Pie ~ made by my Nanny!
I packed my lunch and took it with me to eat as I ran errands this afternoon with my sister and Mom on my break from work ~
Gluten-Free Spinach Wrap with a Grilled Chicken Strip & the normal fixings
I also snacked on Salt & Pepper Pistachios with my wrap.
It was back to the Y around 4:30 this evening to take care of Weigh-Ins for the Challenge and to teach classes. The line-up tonight was CX Worx and Beginner Basics. After classes, I munched on an Apple to hold me over until I was able to get home and prepare some dinner.
Steamed Broccoli with Parmesan Cheese + Veggie Sauce (below) for dipping & Two Grilled Chicken Wontons
I ended up saving some of the steamed broccoli to eat tomorrow. I made just a little too much!
Evening Sweet Tooth Calmer ~
Granola with Dark Chocolate Chips….again!
Goodness, I am so tired tonight. I feel like it should be a Thursday, not a Tuesday. I need to hit the sack so I am able to rise and shine in the morning for another jam packed day.
Hope your eating habits did not include any pie today like mine. I will try to do better tomorrow. I do hope, though, that your day included a sweat-session (of some sort) like mine. I was so sweaty after my run, but felt so refreshed!!
Until next time ~
