Healthy day! yay!

Monday, January 14, 2013

I had a nice 5 mile run yesterday evening. It was not too intense, but felt great to be outside after being cooped up in the house with a stomach bug for the weekend. Then this morning I had an awesome legs, back, abs workout in the gym plus 20 minutes of cardio.

My work schedule recently changed from 8am - 4:30pm to 8:30am – 5pm. That extra 30 minutes in the morning is amazing! I now have time to make it to the gym in the morning, come home and eat a nice breakfast, get ready, and still have enough time for my 28 minute commute. I’m super psyched about this change, and it really feels so great to have my gym workout finished already. Plus it was just me and 3 elderly men in the gym at 6am. Loved it! Yay!

Last night I made overnight oats, so my breakfast was ready and waiting for me after my workout. I basically just put raw oats, protein powder, chia seeds, flax seeds, raisins, cinnamon, and stevia in a bowl, covered it with almond milk and let it sit overnight. This morning they were thick and tasty! I also added blueberries on top this morning. So good! I packed a healthy lunch today for work- chicken breast and various veggies over brown rice and a big apple as dessert. I will also get a latte sometime today. Then I’m going to have salmon, veggies, and a big salad for dinner tonight.

I have logged all of my food for the day. I’m actually using the Lose it app on my phone because it’s quicker and easier for me to do it throughout the day, and I have greater success sticking with food tracking when using this program.

I’m feeling super motivated and healthy today! Yay! I will keep this up throughout the week!
