Whew! My, was yesterday ever A DAY.
This may sound very spoiled, but usually whenever I take a vacation I always take the day after getting home off from work – to do laundry, gather my life back together, and have a day to relax before getting back to the grind. This time around, since we were only gone for four days, I went right back to work yesterday after getting back last night. Let’s just say by 8:00 p.m. last night, I was exhausted and the laundry was far from being done.
You know how it is.
It was also quite a busy day on the training and managing front (including some damage control to be done – oy) but I knew that going in. Nevertheless, the day flew by, I ended it with an episode of Dexter, and it’s Wednesday, but it feels like Tuesday to me. Win! Plus I have some extra time to get in a leg workout after publishing this post this morning. Double win.
So let’s get to it! – What I Ate Wednesday
Basically, it’s missing a couple little blocks in the food pyramid. Can you tell which ones?
7:00 AM – BCAA’s in blueberry
I sipped on some aminos while I did some HIIT sprints on the treadmill:
8:30 AM – Julie’s Noatmeal
The only thing I changed was I used 1 egg + 3 egg whites instead of 5 egg whites. I was a bit skeptical, but it was absolutely delicious. And the only reason I used the jar as my bowl was because I didn’t want to do another single dish today! (I’m usually not an oats-in-a-jar fan)
12:30 PM – Fitmixer Protein in chocolate mixed with SO Delicious Coconut Milk
I drank this after doing a short back and shoulders workout:
-band assisted pull ups – 4x8ish
-narrow grip seated row – 3×8
-band assisted chin ups – 4×8
-dumbbell arnold press – 4×8
-barbell overhead press – 3x8ish
1:30 PM – Tuna salad w/ carrot sticks
My tuna salad is about as easy as it gets – all eyeballed: 1 can of tuna + some mayo, relish, and mustard, + a little chopped red onion
4:00 PM – Meg’s chocolate black bean mug cake w/ PB
6:45 PM – Sliders w/ cheese + this brussels sprouts salad
I told you guys I’d make it! And it was SO good – and easy! The only thing was I had to get out my food processor, but even then it took .5 seconds to shred the sprouts. Although I had a generous portion, I’m going to have at least two more servings in leftovers.
After trying this combo with cottage cheese instead of GY, Tara suggested switching to GY. I can’t believe how much it improves the taste! This tasted decadent, despite being essentially sugar free!
Now, can ya guess what I’m omitting from my diet – at least for a little while? There’s a hint in that last part
Now, I can’t say I’m absolutely thrilled with this eating style change, but it’s only this rigid temporarily. For the sake of keeping this post from becoming a book – and from keeping you from dying of boredom – I’ll wait until tomorrow’s post to talk about why I’m making some diet changes. It’s going to be a doozy. There’s a lot to tell.
On that note, it’s leg day! See ya!
How do you deal with coming back from vacation? Stay unpacked until the weekend? Unpack as soon as you step in the door? I’m in the latter camp. I can’t stand looking at a suitcase all week!
A separate note on good habits, as I know a lot of bloggers are pursuing PT certs-
