Wish me luck 😉 I haven’t run 4 miles in almost a year! It’s only one more mile than 3. That makes it sound more achievable, doesn’t it? I’ll let you know how it goes!
This morning I mad my first ever oats in a jar. It was sooo good! Oatmeal, cashew butter, golden raisins and raw cacao nibs: (recipe will be under the recipe tab shortly)
With a side of coffee (notice what my mug says…:D)
I did workout yesterday and had an awesome workout. I busted it out! First I took BodyAttack class, and then I worked my back and biceps:
- Machine lateral pullup: 60 lbs 3sets of 12
- Row rear deltoid: 40 lbs. 3 sets of 12
- 21’s: Set 1 12lbs, 36 reps, set 2 12 lbs. 30 reps
- Open Ups: 12.5 lbs, 3 sets of 12
- Hammer curl: 12.5 lbs, 3 sets of 8
All of the exercise resulted in a fantastic burn: 651 calories in 1:17:45!
I was famished after my workout, and went with a friend to grab some lunch at the local Mexican restaurant. I can’t believe I forgot to take pictures, especially since we were discussing the blog (among about a million other things!) I had the carne asada, with avocado, corn tortillas, and a couple of fork fulls of refried beans. Accompanied by a very large glass of water . It was a great lunch, we hadn’t seen each other in for-ev-er! 😀
I picked up The Troublemaker, (I mean Sophia) at school and headed home to start the 100 loads of laundry that came out of nowhere. I worked some this afternoon while the boys and Sophia played, and then dinner totally snuck up on me. I did have a snack:
Then realized I hadn’t planned dinner! After much to-do and deciding on virtually nothing, I pulled a Ming Tsai frozen fried rice kit out of the freezer that I picked up at Target for emergencies (mostly because it was on sale).
I was tired, so Jeremy cooked it up, and added some Braggs Aminos to it, in an effort to increase the nutritional content (I think). LOL. It was not clean, I think it had MSG in it under one of those other names when they don’t want it to come out and say “MSG”. I seem to remember the words “hydrolyzed” or “autolyzed” in the ingredient list.
The edamame increased its nutritional value (kind of). Enough of that, I was snacky-snacky again, and didn’t want a real meal, so the accompaniment was:
Homemade bread (the bread that actually turned out and didn’t look like this:)
Don’t even ask me what happened. It tasted good, but it was a huge brick. Yikes! On the slice of bread that I did eat (I have no problem increasing my carbs, LOL) was my favorite nut butter:
Oh, and there was also a glass of wine (not pictured). I’m sure y’all know what a glass of wine looks like 😉
Lately my stomach has been off from stress so I have been enjoying this peach, ginger, green tea that I bought at a little local health food store around the corner from me:
This tea is great. If you like peach tea, this is the way to go. The peach smell permeates the room, and it really tastes like a real peach. Highly recommended. I had 2 cups!
10:00pm is my “witching hour”…that late night hour every night where I get hungry no matter what. Tonight I just couldn’t find anything that looked appealing to me. I walked from pantry to fridge, back to the pantry, back to the fridge, (you get the idea). I finally found what I wanted in the freezer:
I LOVE these brands of ice cream. So healthy, so good, nothing bad in them. I HATE that for a little container like the one pictured, it is almost $5.00. Really? Is it made of gold ?! Sometimes Publix (the local grocery store) has them buy one get one free. That’s the time to stock up!
I added some of my homemade cinnamon vanilla pecan nut granules butter because I wanted to:
That was the best ice cream ever. A truly decadent end to my night. 🙂
Have a great hump day!
