Playing massive catch-up today. I’ve had some really great days and some bad ones, so I’ve been avoiding everything. Plus there’s been a real lack of vegetables and a plethora of refined carbohydrates…
I tried to set myself up on a good start for Thanksgiving morning with a Chobani Champion tube. Get my metabolism going nice and early.
Yesterday felt great. I went to bed at 8:30pm the night before so I got plenty of sleep before my 6am alarm went off for my 60 minute lap swim. It felt so great to be back in the water, besides the fact that I got a bug bite around my right eye during the night so wearing my goggles was a bit painful! >.<
My breakfast consisted of a cup of nonfat Greek yogurt, freezer raspberry jam, peanut butter, and half a cup of Optimum Slim for some crunch.
It started with me waking before my 7am alarm, in order to eat a breakfast of half a blueberry bagel with peanut butter and homemade huckleberry jam along with a glass of milk, and then heading to the Missoula Farmer’s Market with my dad! We had a great time browsing all the beautiful produce and sipping on cappuccinos. We bought some goodies, but didn’t go over the top.
Well I figured instead of waiting to return Sunday night and be totally stressed out writing a recap of my weekend, I’d write it while I’m on it and insert the pictures later! So the words you are reading are happening in real time…you’re just getting them late. ^^
Anyway this morning was a little bit of a bummer. I got to the pool around 7:25am only to find out that they were kicking us out at 8am due to an all day staff training session. >.< Darn it, I shouldn’t have ignored the signs posted all week. Anyway, I swam my heart out for 35 minutes and then headed home. Doing a shorter workout than planned is always a let down, but it really forced me to power through it all.
Once home I made another toasted English muffin with creamy natural peanut butter, local peach jam, and half a banana. Okay so the banana didn’t add anything to the amazing peach but I needed to use it up! Washed down with a glass of 1% milk. I’m wondering if I can get Chase to drop to 1%…I’m kind of preferring it.
I love that my swim just gets easier to do! Not that it’s becoming less of a workout, but my sore muscles are feeling stronger and the time passes quicker. 60 minute lap swim first thing this morning. My favorite way to start the day.
Once I got back home around 8:45am, I made a quick breakfast of Kirkland nonfat Greek yogurt, fresh raspberries, dried blueberries, and a drizzle of natural peanut butter. Sadly, I grabbed the wrong peanut butter at Costco so this one is creamy, not chunky. >.<
This has been the longest day ever! And it’s not even 8pm in Seattle…
My day started off at 2am with a shower then hit the road to the Seattle-Tacoma airport at 3am. My flight to San Francisco (I went the most roundabout way to Montana ever. Please someone remind me next time I’m booking flights to look at the STOPS not just the arrival time!) left around 5:20am and while I wished I could sleep on the flight (I probably only got about 2 hours a sleep Sunday night) I was too awake. When the beverage cart came by I accepted my fate, drank some coffee, had a breakfast of a Larabar PB&J and read Salt, Sugar, Fat by Michael Moss. I need to finish this book stat! It’s super interesting, but just soo many facts it gets a little cumbersome.
Man it takes getting up pretty darn early to get four people showered, dressed, and out the door to get some place for breakfast at 9 am. Let me just say by the time we got to the beach house I was starving! Luckily I got the coffee I won from Win before we got there, so the double tall ristretto latte helped.
There wasn’t the biggest breakfast selection so I had something I normally don’t. Half a sesame seed bagel with a blueberry cream cheese spread. It was actually quiet tasty.
I totally had cake for breakfast. My favorite Good Food Store Vegan Orange Poppy Seed cake….with a carton of nonfat milk. ^_^ I actually picked it up before bowling last night but didn’t feel like sweets for once. I figure it was either this or a huge muffin so I think I made the smarter choice.
Holy cow was it hot today! High of 90 degrees here in Seattle and holy moly did we feel it. Seriously, even when I got up at 9am it was already hot out!
So instead of working out first thing I had a nice cold bowl of Weetabix, raspberries, dried cherries, and a drizzle of sunflower seed butter. It actually worked, though I did miss the texture that nuts bring.
Hi guys! It’s officially summer for me!! =D And boy did I celebrate.
First I slept in until 8am (two whole hours!) then made myself a scrumptious breakfast of blueberry Kodiak Cakes with maple syrup and almond butter. ^_^
I had big plans to fit my workout in and do a lot more biochem cramming but my morning didn’t exactly go that way. It’s that time of the month and my stomach had that awful “sick but not sick due to any reason you have control of” feeling so I ended up laying down for another 40 minutes after breakfast.
