Verse of the Day:
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”
– 1 John 1:7
Breakfast was eaten before the commute to work at about 7:30AM.
1/3 C. old-fashioned oats cooked in 1/3 C. low-fat milk, 2/3 C. water, 1 tbsp. SF strawberry Torani syrup, and cinnamon. Topped with 3 crushed Cinnamon Toast pretzel crisps, 1/2 tbsp. SF raspberry Polaner jelly and 1 tsp. calorie free Walden Farms chocolate dip. Oats were eaten alongside 1 maple flavored Morningstar Farm soy sausage patty.
I’ve been downing iced coffees at work like it’s nobody’s business.
Campfire S’mores Caftea with SF vanilla Torani is like having breakfast dessert at my desk. Nothing says summer like a good campfire s’more 😉
Lately, I’ve been packing my lunches & parts of my dinner because Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday I’ve got class from 6-8PM. I go straight from work to the gym on campus to get a nice workout in before class, shower using the facilities, recompose myself, and eat the lunchbox goods in the car before class. I’m all about time efficiency.
Lunch was a TACO SALAD at about 12:15PM.
1/2 C. Fantastic Foods Vegetarian Taco Filling atop broccoli slaw with a dollop of each salsa & fat-free sour cream. A La Tortilla Factory whole wheat wrap on the side for whole grains.
This taco salad was delicious. I actually scooped up some of the salad and made a burrito with my wrap! Best idea I had all day 😉
Between work & the gym, I had a Nature’s Path Pumpkin N’ Spice granola bar.
At the gym, I hogged the Cross Ramp for a good 40 minutes – the limit for cardio equipment is supposed to be 30 minutes, because there are only 2 treadmills, 3 Cross Ramps, 2 bikes, and 1 stair master, but no one was waiting, so I figured an extra 10 minutes wasn’t a biggie, right? Average HR 155; calories burned: 480. I declare “Never Back Down” the most motivational movie to watch while doing cardio. Seriously, just check out the soundtrack.
Then again, it could’ve just been Sean Faris causing my heart rate to rise 😉
After cardio, I hit the mat for two sets of 1 min.+ planks and 2 sets of 30 “in-and-outs”. Then I used the hanging oblique machine for2 sets of 10 to each side. I hate feeling so rushed during my workouts, but the time constraint is important if I want to make it to class ontime, UNsmelly 🙂
I ate this spread in my car before class for dinner (I KNOW, I know…protein repeat!):
Cucumbers and carrots sprinkled with Garlic Gold Sea Salt nuggets, 1 bag of steamfresh veggies (broccoli, edamame, water chesnuts, and carrots) topped with Vegetarian Taco Filling topped with a dollop of each salsa & ff sour cream. For protein, I packed a 2 egg white puff topped with melted Finlandia swiss cheese.
Class has got me feeling on top of the world. It’s so amazing how much more you appreciate learning when you haven’t been in a classroom for awhile. Who would’ve ever thought they would miss SCHOOL so much? As I posted yesterday, I did pretty well on my first exam & hw! My average in the class right now is a 95.
I quickly drove home, changed clothes, and went to my cousin’s house where girls’ night was being hosted, to watch the Bachelorette. Frank is gone, incase you missed it. He’s still in love with his ex. He did things in a very respectable way, however, and I can’t bash him at all.
I had a plate of fruit while watching the show with banana slices, apple slices, watermelon, and strawberries, but my camera was at home, so here’s a Kath inspired photo. Ha.
When I got home, Momma FF had made a pit stop at the store upon my request and picked up these goodies for me! 🙂 I was lacking dairy for the day, so I had a cup of Soy Milk & handful of Cinnamon Toast pretzel crisps before bed. Thanks MOMMA!
Two Question Tuesday:
1. Are you more of a coffee or tea person? What’s your favorite brand?
2. What are some good tunes for a cardio remix on the ipod? I need to update my iTunes!
Heads up on great Coconut Water giveaway over at Rosey Rebecca today!
