Yeah... the book I lost that I last remembered reading in bed? Was in bed. HAHAHAHAHAHA
I looked there!!!!!!! I PROMISE!!!!!!!!!! But then last night I lifted a sheet on my hubby's side of the bed and there it was. *phwew*
Anyway -- this morning I got up and headed to the Aquatic Center to meet Rowing Club members for an erg session. That was great! :D Then I did upper and lower body ST in the AC weight room -- which, btw, has a small cardio room as well!!!! If continuing rowing in the fall is something that becomes important for me, I may want to consider keeping this same little set up going. I'd have access to a treadmill if I wanted it for running purposes, and a weight room... so...? No classes. :P We'll see.
I ate an apple to start the day, then when I got home from the workout session I made a smoothie up! :)
I looked at some examples and then just experimented with a variation using the ingredients I had -- and VOILA! The Tofu Protein Strawberry Banana Smoothie was born!!! It was creamy and thick and delicious. I shared it on SP Recipes if anyone is interested. The totals were 243 cal, 4g fat, 31g carbs and 26g protein...
3oz Lite Silken Firm Tofu
1 cup Light Vanilla Soymilk (Silk)
1/2 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
1 cup frozen strawberry/banana mix.
After that I took a nap. Then I packed my lunch+snacks for work, which I'm really looking forward to.
Lunch will consist of:
1 flatout wrap with: 42g romaine, 3oz cooked chicken, 1 laughing cow cheese wedge, and some amazing salsa.
Cottage Cheese w/ Blueberries
Snacks: 1 - THE MOST AMAZING YOGURT (Stonyfield Organic Fat Free Probiotic Strawberry), 1/2 oz Blue Diamond Sea Salt Almonds
2 - 1/2 oz same almonds and a pack of salmon (2.5oz)
Before leaving for work I enjoyed my old FAVORITE - pretzel sticks w/ natural PB, and also had some popcorn.
Tonight for dinner I planned some eye of round marinated in a Spicy Ginger sauce, couscous, and Green Giant Healthy Digestion Veggies.
Also I've planned in the previously denied frozen yogurt parfait. ;)
I am LOVING the food options today, so since that's what I'm excited about right now -- I HAD to share. :) I'm over 1-2g in carbs/fat/protein with these foods, and 15cal under in my calorie range -- weird. But since the calories fit and everything is perfectly balanced I'm calling this menu plan for today a smashing success!!!!
In reviewing my detailed totals my saturated fat said 30g!!! WHAAAT?! So I looked at the details and some joker who entered the Flatout wrap has total fat of 2g, saturated fat - EIGHTEEN GRAMS. HAHAHAHAHA yeah right. So I'm actually fine in that category.
So I opted not to run today -- since I found out I'm running a 5K race this weekend and I REALLY want to PR!!!!! I'm trying to take it easy the rest of the week. I plan to run an easy 2 miler tomorrow, chill chill chill pace, and then KILL it on Saturday!!! and then easyeasy run on Sunday as well.
