I didn’t mention it in this morning’s post because I didn’t want to jinx myself, but I think I overdid it on this morning’s workout. Last week’s workout A may have left my muscles crying from soreness, but today’s a little…different. It’s isolated pain in my left medial glute, and I’m just hoping and crossing my fingers and toes that I didn’t strain it. About half way through the workout, I felt a little twinge, but thought it was just a cramp.
I did get a chance to do some foam rolling, so hopefully that helps, and the soreness is, indeed, just a cramp.
Last night while everything was cooking on the grill, I prepped our lunches for today. I made Shane his normal 2 PBJ sandwiches on whole wheat bread (which he eats every single day – unless I’m too busy to make it, then he usually just doesn’t eat b/c he’s so busy lol) and me, some tunamole salad:
I made guacamole for us to snack on as dinner as dinner was cooking last night so I didn’t chew my arm off (I forgot to eat lunch) but saved half of it for today’s lunch. The above is just half a can of this tuna with ~1/4 c. guacamole, grape tomatoes, and spinach.
My two sides include Greek yogurt, raspberries and healthy brownies along with some veggies and hummus:
Balanced, and plenty of food for the afternoon
Notice the container my yogurt combo is in?
A glass Gladware container. I recently made the switch from plastic Tupperware to glass.
I’m kind of on a kick on eliminating as many toxins (that I can control, at least) from my life, and this is just one of those changes. I made a shopping trip over the weekend where I purchased all organic fruits and veggies (or thick-skinned non organic,) some organic sheets (a LOT of sheets contain formaldehyde) and switched all of our cleaners to natural cleaners – including dishwasher and laundry detergent.
I’ve just read way too many studies lately about how BPA, formaldehyde, carcinogens, toxins, and just plain chemical junk can wreak havoc on our endocrine system and cause all kinds of damage ranging from slowing our metabolism to causing our cells to mutate and cause cancer. So I think the extra expense is worth it, and I’ll cut back other places.
And it bothers me a wee bit that the tuna above didn’t come in a BPA free can. It touts being sustainably caught and low mercury, why not go the extra step and can it in a BPA-free can?
That’s my Monday afternoon spiel. What’s yours?
All right back to work…have a good one!
How important do you feel about using natural/organic products?
