Felt like a Tuesday. Not sure why.
T-5 days until 13.1 at INDY ~ Whoop!
The week started off with a 4AM wake-up call. I started my day with a little BodyPUMP 89 workout at 5AM. It is a great way to start the week; however, after the nearly 13 miles (11 of which were running) yesterday…my legs were feeling a bit fatigued this morning. The upper-body workout, on the other hand, was EXCELLENT!
Breakfast after the workout was a THRIVE shake. It tasted AMAZING. THRIVE is my favorite when enjoyed post-workout. I came home quickly around noon to shower and grab lunch before heading back for round two at the Y. My lunch ended up being (get ready for random!…) PB/DCC Granola + 1 hard-boiled egg. Don’t ask questions…I do not have answers.
1 Hard-Boiled Egg (minus the yolk ~ I only like egg yolks in deviled eggs!)
Homemade Granola ~ Yes, I ate enough to allow it to become my meal. Yes, I know that it is not green and it has chocolate in it. But…it tasted so good!!!
I worked the afternoon away. I almost sent an email to a lady that ended with “Have a great Tuesday!” ~ good thing I proof-read that one!! Not sure why it felt so much like Tuesday today; however, it will be here before we know it.
Once quitting time rolled around, I completed a short upper body/core workout in the gym since I had some time to kill before heading into a meeting that was scheduled for 5:45. It was nice ‘me’ time in the gym…just able to do my own thing. I love group exercise classes, but I also love my solo workouts.
Me + Music + Gym = Nothing compares.
Fresh Veggies ready to be roasted!
Final product!! ~ Roasted Veggies (Asparagus, Broccoli, Red Pepper, Zucchini & Squash) + Grilled Chicken Wrap (Gluten-Free Spinach Wrap = cannot live without)
I cannot believe today is Monday. My, how the weekends just fly by!! My weekend was not comprised of 100% healthy eating habits. But, since I was able to get in two AWE-SOME sweat sessions ~ one strength (Saturday) & one long run (Sunday) … I was OK with splurging a little.
However, today it is back to business! (well, minus the granola for my lunch! oops! I will do better tomorrow!). Time to get back to strong and strict. Less granola. More greens & proteins!!
We got this!! Tomorrow is Tuesday…so let’s make sure it involves a sweat-session and lots of fresh greens & lean proteins. My Tuesday game-plan:
1. A Morning Run ~ likely on the treadmill due to rainy conditions
2. A Salad for lunch (greens!)
3. Egg scramble for dinner post the evening sweat session, perhaps?
4. NO granola for LUNCH!
What is your game-plan? Get one…got it?
Until next time,
