First things first - here is a new website that I am addicted to: http://www.fooducate.com/blog/
Basically Fooducate is a blog dedicated to finding out what is actually in the food products you eat. I have to say that I recently ate a few bags of 'baked chips' and drank my first diet soda (or any soda for that matter) in at least a year and I felt really weird about it. Not bad necessarily, just odd. And I can say that after reading this blog, I can assure you that I will not be getting near those products again.
As for an update on this week, its going okay but not stellar. Until I see how finances play out on payday, I have been unable to make it over to Revelation...and I really miss it. I am psyched to make it to Victoria's class Friday afternoon!
Here's how it went down:
Monday: Nightmare day/night. No gym time.
Tuesday: Elliptical for 15 minutes, 45 minutes weights
Wednesday: Ran 4 miles
Thursday: The plan today in 2 mile speed workout, 45 minutes weights
Friday: Victoria's Power Yoga class
Saturday: Long Run (weather permitting), Weights
Sunday: Power Yoga or Rest Day
So its winter. And I am freezing. Here have been my two go to lunches since winter hit:
Wrap with Hummus, Hot Sauce, Chia Seeds, Broccoli Slaw, heated.
Spinach and Mushrooms, heated till wilted then tossed with red wine vinegar and pepper
1 Can Health Valley Organic Low Calorie Soup...here's the deal - this soup is expensive ($3.69 a can or so). But after spending an insane amount of time in the soup aisle this was the only one I could fathom ingesting. Yes, I can make my own soup for less money and I plan on doing so this weekend.
1 Salad with mixed baby green, snap peas, carrots, vinegar and pepper...there should be an oil or fat source here to help absorb nutrients but I need to hit up the grocery store.
These lunches are really light on calories...I know. Non-veggie calories are only stacking in at 200-250 calories. I have been supplementing with 1-2 hard boiled eggs either as a snack or on my salad, a pear and a banana.
