Thank you all very much for commenting on my Fiber post from yesterday:), I’ll definitely have to agree, that as foodies like we all are, we (without a doubt) have no problem consuming enough fiber. And the “TMI” thing does not exist with me, I can completely sympathize with the stomachy-grossness feelings that we sometimes get. If your stomach can handle all those veggies(my Tolerance has grown), then by all means, go for it! But sometimes it turns into Fiber-overload, which isn’t so pleasant ;)… Okay Enough of fiber-talk!
I started off the day yesterday with typical naner oats with everything I normally put in (3/4 Oats, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 banana, peanut butter, flaxseed, wheatgerm). I ATTEMPTED TO ADD EGG WHITES… epic fail. I looked it up online and it said to fluff ’em up in the microwave beforehand, which I did, but i just had a big, inconvenient egg blob in my oats until i took it out… Does anyone have any suggestions for adding egg whites to oats!? Greatly appreciated- I want to experience the “fluff” 🙂
Afterwards, Mommy and I went to Trader Joe’s 🙂 wooo! You know you love food when you would rather have your mom take you to the [Best ever] health food store, than the mall.
I think I spent about an hour in the cereal/granola/nut butter isle alone. I had an extremely difficult time deciding which kind of cereals I wanted… I’m excited to try out my choices though!
This included 2 boxes of cereal, granola, 2 containers of Soup (1 butternut squash, 1 tomato), Dark Chocolate Raisins…Dana, I know you swear by them, So I need to experience them for myself, Sunflower Seed Butter, Everything Pretzel Thins, and hummus(which unfortunately will not make it up to school because I’ll probably finish it by tomorrow).
I then got dressed and ready for practice time and had a piece of bread, and an English muffin (1/2 plain, 1/2 with the TJ’s Sunflower seed butter)
It was definitely Sunflowery- No doubt about it… I’m not sure my pallet is used to it though, Possibly something to try in Overnight Oats? hmm…
I then drove over to the community college on 1/4 Tank of Gas (the low fuel light didn’t go on so It was allll gooood:))
6 min jog/skip
22 min “warm-up” with drills ***while burping up Sunflower Seed Butter Taste: NOTE TO SELF– Don’t do that before practice ever again:)***
2 sets of 4x200m at “tempo” (70%) pace- hit 34’s, but wasn’t as consistent as I wanted them to be
6 min cool down
–>Overall, felt very good, nice and hydrated, very energized (good water, good pre-fuel: woo!)
On the walk to the car- ATE THIS:
I then drove (20minutes) to my high school to lift (so inconvenient) Ran for 6 minutes because I had been sitting in my car for a while,
Then Lifted for an hour>>
Bench Press, Back Squats, Split Jumps(w/ weight), Straight Leg Deadlifts, Front/Lateral/Posterior Raise (3x10lb weight, for each one= really hard, but great burn), Lower Back extension, Single Leg Squats
I stretched for about 8 Minutes after, No ABs today, I decided I’d save all my energy for today- Its gonna be a good workout:)
And tried out a new Bar:
REVIEW?Almond Brownie Balance Bar:
Post-Workout: I liked that it had 15g of protein… I’m not sure if it had the amount of Carbs I needed though:/ Would probably have to have with a piece of fruit
TASTE: Like a bad packaged brownie I once had in elementary school.. Kind of Tootsie Roll-esque with some nut pieces thrown in. ehhh, not bad, but not amazing.
Came home (Note- after driving about 45 minutes to and from the college and to the high school, I was on 1/8 tank of gas, but still no “Low Fuel” Light- soooo, it was okay)
While I waited for my brother to get out of the shower- I enjoyed 2 Large Carrots and TJ’s Hummus:)
I then showered up and went to dinner at Chili’s (always there while home) with a bunch of my friends, I picked up one of my friends on the way on 1/16 of gas, he said I had about 45 minutes left so I didn’t need to get gas because the restaurant is only like 7 minutes away…
I got a Ketchup with a side of Grilled Chicken Sandwich on a Whole Wheat Bun and Broccoli- Thank you Chili’s Website:
Imagine that picture slathered in Ketchup *just the way I like it… The piece of chicken was super small, so it was kind of disappointing but it tasted very good- especially the Sautéed Onions in it.
Afterwards, We went to my friend Kristina’s house until like 12:30, chattin’ and such :)… While leaving, I asked my friend Mary to follow me home just in case I didn’t have enough gas to make it. The Gas Light had been on my this point*… I was going super slow because I was afraid my car would stop any second. Luckily, I made it. But it’s never been this low, and I am kind of afraid it’s not gonna turn on when I try going out later, But here’s to hoping!
Have a wonderful day, Everyone! 🙂
