Good evening! How was your Wednesday? I started mine with a nice run on the treadmill – I did a little over 7 miles. I also spent some time in the weight room, then ended my workout with lots of foam rolling. I am going to really focus on stretching and foam rolling so that I do not have any issues leading up to my half marathon.
Breakfast was eaten super fast since I had to get back to the gym by 8:30 for my weekly babysitting gig.
I made a bowl of egg white oatmeal again – 1/2 cup oats, 1/4 cup liquid egg whites, cinnamon, stevia, banana and PB2.
I was really craving the messy bowl of goo that I made yesterday so I decided to whip up another for today’s lunch. I wanted to some how fit in some veg in the mix, so I grated some carrots using my box grater and stirred them in.
The other ingredients were 2 Weetabix biscuits, plain yogurt (6 oz container of Stonyfield Farms), cinnamon, stevia, raw almonds and sunflower seed butter. All that was missing was some crushed pineapple and I would have had something reminiscent of carrot cake.
Dinner was a good old monster salad – lettuce, broccoli, zucchini, red pepper, chopped apple, chicken and cashews. I think that I can officially say that cashews are my favorite nut.
My guys had homemade pizza. Notice the dividing line. D eats the plain side…….
……while Daddy gets some chicken on his. D hates chicken – I think it is a texture thing. I am really not one to push meat on him seeing as I am not the biggest fan of it myself. I really only eat it out of necessity. A meal without adequate protein does nothing for my hunger. As long as he eats lots of dairy I do not worry that he is not getting enough protein for his little body. He has actually been snacking on string cheese and he even ate a banana and carrots today. My boy is on the right track.
To curb my sweet tooth I had some dates and cashews. I actually stuff the cashew inside the date and then eat it. So good and it really does hit the spot.
I am off to relax before hitting the hay. I am hoping to turn in early – I have been staying up way too late the past few days. I hope you had a great day. See you tomorrow.
