It wasn’t a typical Tuesday around here. I worked an afternoon shift, meaning I had the morning to sleep in.
Hah! I mean get my butt outta bed at 7:00am to kick off the day with a healthy dose of fitness.
But first, a bite or two of fuel of course.
1 GF toaster waffle, almond buttah, 1/2 banana, hemp seeds, and honey drizzle — mmm! Usually, I eat this x2, but I saved the other half for my WOD recovery fuel.
Even though I knew today’s WOD included running, I jumped on the treadmill for an easy 20-minute // 2.5 mile run to warm-up those legs before heading to the box.
Look at that! Someone did the workout as prescribed today! It’s amazing what two simple letters, Rx, can do to my mood :)
Iced coffee to celebrate and encourage the endorphin high.
Greens were packed for lunch at the office, along with half of a huge local Granny Smith and homemade trail mix.
Local raw walnuts, raisins, pepitas, bittersweet chocolate chips. #simple
Dinner came early as my evening was free from exercise. Quick comfort food to the rescue in the form of sweet tater black black bean quinoa chili and a corn tortilla with sharp white cheddar (that tasted 10x better than it appears).
A day of eating clean and sweating dirty is as good of a day as any.
