When I heard on the news this morning it was going to get up to 80 this weekend I knew flops and short sleeves were in my future. I can’t wait for warm weather! I am willing it with by open toes and no jacket today.
Breakfast was cereal.
-cup ff milk
-a little less then 1/2c grapenuts
-1/4c blueberry muesli
-5 cocoa almonds
I recently fed Dan grapenuts and he discovered even though he hated these as a child he enjoyed then now. If you haven’t tried them in adulthood… Do it!
Morning snack was a banana.. In hot sauce. “well, it needed it” -don’t tell mom the babysitter’s dead quote… No?
Lunch was eaten outside… of my office. It Lean cuisine chicken enchilada Suiza. As always the chicken in this is weird mush. I need to try smart ones brand I am told. (apparently I only tok a pic of the box. Oops)
Afternoon snack was baaaad. And by afternoon I mean right after lunch. It was baad but it was really delicious and left me feeling guilty! It was someones bday so they had brought the most delicious cupcakes! You know I love icing! This icing was amazing and tasted like vanilla ice-cream. Sooooo good! The cupcake was moist and amazing as well.
Why have I started my week with a cupcake binge?
Preworkout I tried to hold out since I had the cupcake but I ate a handful of nuts so I wouldn’t die on my run.
Fitness: today I was slated for 4.5 miles. From this week on out my mileage starts to get big. Makes me nervous with the running and my classes how my legs will feel by the time saturday rolls around and I have to do my long runs. After the run I was excited to try out my new DVD.
I tried some of Jackie Warner’s weight training on demand but they are no longer on there so I ordered this one that has 5 workouts to do on days when my run isn’t so long. Besides I have been doing the pushups for so long now I miss weights in my life. I did the 50 min total body circuit and I really liked it. It wasn’t hard enough to do on it’s own but coupled with a run I felt good about it. The ab and arms sections were the hardest parts.
After a hot run, hot dinner did not sound appealing so I made a salad. Modeled after the sour apple salad I had at Couch Tomato recently that I enjoyed.
-grilled chicken pieces
-rf blue cheese
-pomegranate blueberry vinaigrette
The salad was delicious! Apple and blue cheese go really well together! This dressing was one I saw and snatched up a while ago and never opened. It only has 25 calories per 2 tbsp. It was a little vinegary but very light and refreshing.
On the side I had some everything bagel pretzels.
Determined to have a productive night tonight. I need to start packing for my trip to Boston this weekend. (My good friends are getting married and it should be really fun.) But before then I have a busy week of sports and working out.
I wish the warm weather would stick around…
