For those of you who remember, back in June I finished my first complete text book, cover-to-cover, 359 pages! Well yesterday I finished my second complete text book...All 588 pages of it! This book is my study guide for my CSCS test, so I had good reason to finish it up. Have you ever finished any text books or any rather large book?
Yesterday's Breakfast- 1/2 c plain yogurt, 1/2 c chocolate granola, dab of homemade strawberry jam
Yesterday's Lunch- Tuna (mixed with 1 Tbsp mayo, 1 Tbsp BBQ sauce), Kraft Single and tomato on a wrap
Yesterday's Snack- My girl friend that I went running with sells supplement/nutrition products so she gave me a couple samples of chocolate and vanilla flavored protein. These are both great with 200 calories for a full serving, 18 g protein and 10 g fiber.
With my chocolate sample I made some Reese's chocolate pudding! So simple! Mix just a little water with the protein so it is thick and add a dollop of PB in there... mix and enjoy! It literally tasted like Reese's! I'm sold!
Yesterday's Dinner- Roasted potatoes and zucchini
Today's Breakfast- Oatmeal with a quarter of a serving of vanilla protein powder and a dab of homemade strawberry jam. I definitely liked the chocolate flavor better, so I think I'll be purchasing some of that from her. I'll show you all the brand and other stats when I get it!
Yesterday I was able to recruit one of my friend to do my track workout with me! Wow did that ever make a difference! The laps were so much more enjoyable and painless having someone trotting alongside me! I was a little faster than planned, but here are the splits...
I didn't really plan to taper off, but was more so trying to get to the speed I should have been going at, my 5K pace, which if I calculated correctly should've been around 2:00 per lap. In the end I'm glad we weren't going that pace because that would have been really slow and not very challenging for us I think.
Today I'll be hitting the road for a nice 3 mile run, then off to the gym for a full body lift! Tomorrow's my day off, so I plan to give it everything in the gym today.
