Hey Guys! It’s going to be another quickie post tonight. It’s already late and my alarm clock is set for 4:45am – eek! The day before I leave on vacation is always a little hectic for me, but today wasn’t actually all that stressful or chaotic thanks to a little pre-packing and 1 cancelled class.
I got my
Waffle Wednesday started with a bowl of cold cereal. I don’t eat a lot of cold cereals – and when I do, the are usually consumed as late-night snacks [a not-so-great habit] – but I was in “clean-out the kitchen” mode. I finished off my unsweetened almond milk with 1 c. Organic High Fiber O’s, 1/2 of a ripe banana, 4 sumo strawberries, almonds & walnuts. It wasn’t as satisfying as a creamy bowl of piping hot oatmeal, but it still provided me with adequate a.m. nutrition.
After three days sans exercise, I finally had enough energy to do a wee bit of a workout. I started off with 15 minutes of yoga/stretching. My body is craaaving yoga… seriously, I need to get on the mat stat! After a few pigeon poses and downward dogs, I walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes [4.0 mph @ 5.0 incline] and ellipticalled [a new verb, obvi] for 10 minutes at resistance 10. Throw in a few abdominal exercises and I called it a day.
My goal for today was to eat up as much of my fresh produce as I possibly could. BINGO!
- Dr. P Veggie Burger with the last of my homemade hummus & final 1/4 of avocado
- Organic broccoli & cherry tomatoes sautéed in olive oil & garlic
Remember what I told ya about broccoli + tomatoes?
Confession: I’m obsessed with vegetables. I think there might be a few of you out there who are with me on this one, no?
Ahhh…I gotta go. gotta go. gotta go. I must get some zzz’s!
See you from ______!
