The morning FLEW on this glorious Monday. I didn’t have time to stop and think till about 11:00. My delicious (and standard) breakfast powered me through until I had a chance to sit down and realize that I was a bit hungry. Luckily I had a delish in a dish nectarine to hold me over until lunch.
We had a speaker over the lunch hour and I grabbed a salad from the AWESOME salad bar in a building near mine. Greens, chicken, black beans, roasted red peppers, peanuts, mandarin oranges, green onions and honey mustard dressing all made it into my lunch salad. An apple and Casein + water powered my through the afternoon and my evening swim/run.
I headed to the gym post work and did 1/2 mile in the pool. I swam the first quarter pretty slow but then this dude got in the pool and I didn’t want him to lap me so I swam the second quarter mile way faster. By the end I was totally out of breath and could barely haul myself out of the pool. However, I am proud to say that he didn’t lap me!
Kerry and I then went on a glorious 4 mile run through downtown Minneapolis. We ran a new route and fortunately much of it was in the shade. It was pretty hot running in the sun. I don’t think I would have lasted had more of our run been out in the sun. Yes, I tried to rhyme that ish.
Surprisingly, I was not famished when I got home. I’ve been trying to add more protein into my diet and eat a morning and afternoon snack. This has really helped me get my hunger under control so I’m not to the point of starving.
I made a Chipolte-esque burrito bowl for dinner. 3/4 cup brown organic rice + peppers and onions + 3 turkey meatballs + black beans + corn
I picked up these guys from Trader Joe’s and highly recommend them!
I didn’t have any chicken so these were substituted for my meat (protein). They tasted a bit weird with my Mexican-inspired dinner. But not so weird that I wouldn’t use them again.
Topped it off with some Salsa Lisa chipolte salsa.
My dessert was a protein shake– milk chocolate whey protein + water (I’m out of almond milk!)
Off to get my yoga on…DOWNWARD DOG!
