breakfast - chocolate mocha shake (milk, choc protein powder, instant coffee, ice)
Had a hard time getting out of the house and to the Y so we were very late getting there so I missed my boot camp class and only had a little more than an hour until the Y childcare closed. So I dropped the kids off put on my shoes and went to the walking track. for the first 15 minutes I alternated between walking the oval track and running it and then the last 15 minutes I walked the short sides of the oval and sprinted down the longer sides as fast as I could. I had my heart rate up pretty high and when I finally stopped to stretch thats when the sweat really started dripping down my face. I dont remember ever sweating that much after a work out other than the time I ran that 5k 2 years ago. I got a really good workout though in a very short amount of time.
I took the last 25 minutes to shower which I have to say is the best part of having a YMCA memebership. Knowing my kids are being taken care of and not killing each other so I can peacefully shower.
How do I know when I have had a good workout? When my face looks like a tomato afterwards. lol
I got home and had a turkey bacon sandwich with light mayo and lettuce on gluten free bread and a small salad with raspberry dressing.
afternoon snack was a gluten free english muffin with strawberry jam and a medium banana with 1 tbls peanut butter. The english muffin is not really like a real english muffin but its pretty good when you cant eat the real thing. They are made by glutinos if your interested.
later that day I was cooking dinner for everyone, I was going to make them chicken cordonblu that I got on sale this past week. It contains wheat for some reason so I cant eat it, so I was just going to have some soup I made a few days ago instead. Somehow I forgot to turn on the stove so by the time I checked dinner when the timer went off I only had 20 minutes till I had to be out the door with the kids for there kids water fitness class and dinner was still frozen. So I had to turn on the oven and get that cooking again and then make the kids ham and cheese sandwiches. I was completely stressed out and found myself wanting to snap at the kids because they seemed to be more annoying than usual (or maybe it was just me)....
anyway I did not have time to eat and we rushed out the door to go back to the Y so the kids could go swimming because we missed last week and I promissed. even though I did not want to go.
I dropped them at there class and decided to go walking again. turned on my music and walked for another 30 minutes. I felt much better afterwards and there was no more snapping at kids for the rest of the night.
I ended up eating dinner at 9pm so I am glad I worked in that snack earlier in the day.
I had southwest sausage and lentil soup with 1 serving of scoops tortilla chips. and then for dessert (which I had planned on, just had not planned on eating it with dinner) I had gluten free strawberry shortcake.
The soup was so good. I will post the recipe below.
overall a very good day and I tracked everything on my sparkpeople app. Which I found out now costs money... I feel lucky because when I downloaded it, it was still free. :-) I have to tell you though that if I had to I would buy it in a heartbeat because it would be worth every penny. A great tool to have.
