Not feeling so blah today afterall!
First my bestie officially joined my gym today... very excited! And very proud of her... if you know her then you know thats a big step! Hopefully she will come to love it like I have.
She text me around lunch time asking if I would meet her at the gym for a bit - I was sore and feeling blah but said of course and even went an hour early and got a full weight training/core session in. Then did 20 min on the elliptical and 20 min on the treadmill. Not as calorie burning as I usually do BUT I am/was super sore and ran 13 miles yesterday. It was JUST what I needed and now Im not nearly as sore any m0re... love how that works!
Eating has been pretty decent today too - and I cooked quite a bit to get me through 3 days at work.
I made "cream" of veggie soup which is super easy. I roasted some red and yellow peppers, steamed a ton of cauliflower. Then in a blender mix the peppers, cauliflower, silk tofu, chicken broth and a touch of white wine vinager. Surprisingly good!
I also made a big batch of veggies and brown rice - I saute a ton of onion, garlic, mushrooms, fresh baby spinach, brocoli and some fresh parsley. Then I made some brown rice and mixed all of it together. Technically just the brown rice is 3 points per 1/2 cup but my mixture is more veggie then rice but Im still counting it as 3 points per 1/2 cup.
I grilled a ton of chicken too.
Dinner was the rice mixture with a tsp of hummus mixed in, chicken, green beans... yummy!
I even have 5 points left over that Im going to enjoy 1/2 cup light vanilla icecream with 1/2 banana and some sauted cinnimon apple slices. yummy!
Tomorrow Im heading to the gym after work as long as work isnt horrible - if its bad then I will do an off day tomorrow instead of friday. Which if we get snow like they are calling for it, may be a better idea. I really need to get in a 10 mile run but wont have time for that after work so Im just going to run the 80 min until my treadmill turns off... should be between 8-9 miles.
Oh and my wonderful husband fixed my lap top... I then dropped it on the floor and now its broken again :(
And no I did NOT get around to cleaning my room today - oh well.
