Gosh guys, I am feeling fantastic!
I haven’t done a morning workout in what feels like months, but I bounded out of bed when my alarm went off and kicked some serious ass in my home gym. My training plan for the Avon Walk had me walking four or five times a week, but I’ve been craving the kind of sweat session that I can’t seem to get from walking alone. So I decided to rework my training schedule a little bit so I can sub in some more intense cardio sessions. I tossed around some kettlebells and did some treadmill sprints. It felt good to go fast!
Anyway, enough of me talking about how exercise is good for you (have you heard that before? exercise is good!). Let’s talk about my eats.
During my morning workout, I got a little dizzy, so I decided to take a few Shot Bloks to get some energy into my system. We always have Shot Bloks in the house. Not only are they great for long workouts (oh, you know, like the 4+ hours I spend out walking) but they were also awesome for whenever we got sleepy during our road trip. Who needs coffee when you have Shot Bloks?
After my workout and shower (and logging into my work station) I made a deliciously awesome bowl of cereal. Regular Puffins, banana, dried fruit and milk.
I’ve said this time and time again, but if I worked from home all the time, I swear I’d be 30 pounds lighter. I worked hard all morning and by the time I realized I was hungry, it was past 1pm. I wasn’t constantly watching the clock for my snack or lunch. I did pull together a pretty large lunch because I’d skipped my snack. Reheated Pepperoni Pizza Mac and Cheese, some sweet peppers plus a bowl of unsweetened applesauce made by Babyface this past weekend.
Lunch dessert was a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I’ve been eating way too many of these.
Remember what I said yesterday about batch cooking on the weekends and then munching on leftovers all week? Well, that’s what you can attribute this mish-mash of a dinner to. Potato soup, two light deviled eggs (recipe coming tomorrow), some applesauce and a corn muffin. I’m not a big fan of eating all one color, but this was delicious.
Dessert was the very last of a recipe you’ll see this afternoon—homemade healthy peanut butter eggs. These were so incredible. I’m actually glad they are gone because I could eat at least 50 of them a day.
After Dinner Snack
We’re catching up on New Girl (SO excited that Hulu Plus now has a Wii app) and I got a little snacky a few episodes in. I had a bowl of regular Puffins.
What’s the best thing you ate yesterday?
