I made a rookie mistake today. I had a sweet night’s sleep last night. When the alarm went off at 6am I realized I really didn’t NEED to wake up that early while my plan is only 30min jogs. So, although I had gotten up to go to the bathroom and felt wide awake, I still let myself go back to sleep for a half an hour. Guess what happened next… I couldn’t wake up! I slept in until after 7! Oops! Won’t do that again!
The good news is that I managed a short yoga session this evening AND a jog. I increased the speed on my jog and it hurt my ankles, shins and knees (knees? seriously? Holy I am fat!). BUT, I decided it was mind over matter, took a couple of 1min breaks… and pushed through the pain. I know I have to start somewhere to get back into jogging shape!
Breakfast: 2 egg whites with sea salt and pepper (0), banana (2) (picture is from the other day – no ketchup today)
Snack: 1/2c Greek Liberte (1), 1/4c granola (1)
Lunch: 1/2c quinoa (2), spinach (0), tuna salad with mustard and hot peppers (1) *Sorry, no photos!*, 1c pineapple and mango (1)
Snack: chocolate protein brownie batter (3)
Dinner: 1/2c ff cottage cheese (2), 1/2 banana (1), 1/2c granola (2)… low fat old cheddar (2) – cheese not pictured!
NOW, in keeping with my honesty… I did do some licking the spoon while baking lemon cupcakes tonight. SO, I’m going to count BLT’s today as 3pts.
Tonight has included yoga, jog, baking & filling & icing cupcakes, making lunch for tomorrow, doing dishes… and now I am off to whip up a couple of quick birthday cards for girls at work (scrapbooking style) and hit the hay!
Happy Hump day!
