Since I'm still technically on "recovery" post half-marathon race this weekend, I didn't do any exercise today, but I am just itching to get back out there as soon as possible. Tomorrow hopefully my muscles will let me do some light elliptical work and strength training before I can get out there and do a real run on Thursday!
However, here's how my meals went today!
Breakfast - Playlist: 90's One Hit Wonders
6 oz Tea (I chose English Breakfast)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
3/4 Wheat Waffles cereal
1/2 Cup Soy milk
2 tbsp peanut butter
3 small slices Rosemary Sourdough Bread
Snack - TV Show: Castle
Marinated Beets (SP Recipe)
1/4 cup Almonds
Dinner - Playlist: 'Of Monsters and Men' Pandora Station
3/4 cup Tofu
1/2 Red Pepper
Marinade: 1 tsp Olive Oil, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup brown rice
1 cup Soy Milk
Phew! I'm knee deep in concert season. I had 3 last week, 4 this week, 6 next week, and 3 the following week. It's a bit stressful, so I'm hoping I don't start stress eating. I thought I was pretty good at managing my stress, but as I think about it, I'm pretty sure that always meant "eat, Eat, EAT!" and really wasn't stress management at all. I need to find better ways to manage my stress.
Are you a stress eater? What do you do to manage your stress?
