Why hello there!:) Let me start by saying that today went by ridiculously fast. I guess that’s what happens when you wake up at 12:30 and don’t eat breakfast until like 1, and then Badabing-Badaboom! It’s 8:30! I don’t remember the last time I slept in that late, but i guess my bod needed it:). It just threw off my sched a bit, but ill deal! Without further a due (is that how you spell/say that?!?), here is today’s food!
Woke up and made oats (over the stove finally!)… I usually microwave ’em because im
lazy starving in the morning and try to Get My Eat On ASAP. But I decided I’d just do it this way and my tummy was very happy I did:)
3/4 Cup Oats
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1 banana cut up really thin so it melts ever so nicely into the oatmeal
~1 Tbsp. each flaxseed & wheatgerm
~2 Tbsp. Maranatha AlmondButteryGoodness
I then blogged around and stalked other people’s New Years Eve Facebook photos for a really long time at my kitchen table… I had spent the past couple days running around and doing a lot of stuff, that I just wanted so sit and stare at a computer screen for 2 hours… I loved it.
During which I snacked on 2 peices of Arnold’s Oat Nut bread as my Pre-Workout Fuel The website is right, this stuff is Bread Perfected: No HFCS, and I can snack on it Un-Toasted and with nothing on it (wow i kinda sound like a commercial…)
Because it is freezing outside, the only indoor track by me is closed, and my high school hallways are off limits for the day- I went down to my basement to do a workout on the exercise bike (yawn!!) At least I got to watch Real Housewives of Orange County and Charlie’s Angels while doing so… So it made it a little better.
(I even had on black spandex and a tight black top on and i felt like I was fighting crime on my stationary bike, Soooo Hey, Charlie- if you need any more Angels, You can gimme a call;).)
30 minutes on an interval program (higher and lower difficulty levels, working my way up), as a warmup
Then a Breakdown Like this: High Difficulty Level—>
5x 20 seconds really fast and hard- 30 seconds slow recovery pace between each
1 minute recovery in between each set
This was my interpretation of a “500 breakdown” Workout that we do running 100m sprints at a “Tempo” Pace.
Either way, I felt really good and then cooled down for 10 minutes (and my butt was a “good sore” as well so i felt kinda accomplished;))
After this I lifted for about 45 minutes
Abs for 15 minutes
Stretching for 10
I was really well hydrated so the whole time I felt really good and energized:)
(But…Ahh can’t wait to do actual workouts at school!)
I only ate an apple right after the workout because dinner was about to be served immediately following my shower (time was flying so fast!!!)
Dinner was at 6:30–Chicken Cordon Bleu that my mom made for the first time, it was really good, and was wayy better than any packaged stuff… steamed broccoli, roasted potatoes mixed with sweet potatoes(emphasis on the sweet potatoes), and salad. It was deliciouss:)
This was so good and filling, but I guess the after-burn of lifting got to me, and 1 1/2 hours later I wanted moreeee! ( I really didn’t fuel as well as I normally do because I woke up so late, so it makes sense)
I had a handful of frozen almonds(so much better this way btw)
And then this:
With some Decaf Green Tea
And right now, I am currently toasting up an Whole Wheat English Muffinatorrr because I’m going to my cousin’s house because she going back to school tomorrow :(… We will chill and talk and drink tea for a few hours, It’s 9:15, I’ve only been up for like 9 hours, so hey, the night is still young! (And yes, I just linked that to Billy Joel;))
Have a wonderful rest-of-the-night!
