Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments on yesterday’s post. I registered for the race pretty late on Monday night, and was worried that I’d wake up on Tuesday morning in an “I can’t believe I just did that” panic — but no such thing happened. I am actually very excited. I chose to sign up for the November half marathon, because I won’t need to start training until after my honeymoon. This means I can enjoy the summer months and get in all of my favorite workouts without having to worry about committing to anything too time consuming. When I get back from the honeymoon, I’m sure I’ll feel a little overwhelmed with reality, and sad that the wedding planning is over, so it will be the perfect time for me to focus on something else — like running 13.1 miles. And anytime I get discouraged, I will come back to yesterday’s post and read all of your comments. You guys are amazing cheerleaders :).
Let’s move on to yesterday’s eats, shall we? It’s been a while since I’ve done a WIAW post, but I worked from home yesterday and had the opportunity to document my food. If you’d like to participate, check out Peas and Crayons for more info.
Breakfast (8:00 am)
I normally eat breakfast around 6:30, but since I had time to sleep in this morning, I decided to make a more leisurely breakfast a little later. I made a batch of homemade pancakes (1/2 cup flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 cup soy milk, small handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips), topped with a little whipped cream, and strawberries on the side.
Snack (10:00 am)
This was more of a necessary pick me up than a snack, but around 10am, I needed something to sip on while I worked. I made a cup of decaf iced coffee with the Keurig, and mixed in my favorite coconut milk.
Lunch (12:00 pm)
For lunch, I had chicken salad on a toasted whole wheat English muffin, an apple, and a handful of Pretzel Crisps. Simple, but delicious.
I worked from home today, because I had a brief orientation at my soon-to-be job in the afternoon. When I left the orientation, it was warm outside, my throat was scratchy, and frozen yogurt sounded like a good afternoon treat. I had chocolate cheesecake and white chocolate fro yo (I promise it’s in there), with a ton of toppings. I might have overdone it a little with the toppings — but can you really ever overdo it with fro-yo? Nah.
Normally, I eat dinner pretty late. By the time I get home from work, to the gym, and drive back home, it’s almost 8:00. Last night, I was supposed to take a Body Toning class at the gym, but I fell asleep after work and completely missed my class. Fail. It’s actually probably a good thing — my allergies have been bugging me, and I haven’t been getting enough sleep lately. So instead of going to the gym, Jordan came over and we went for a 2 mile walk, before I was finally hungry (that fro-yo filled me up!).
I had a B
L ST (that’s a BLT with spinach, in case the picture’s not obvious enough :)) on rye bread, with chips and strawberries on the side. Can you guess what my favorite fruit is ;)?
As you can see, I still need to work on sneaking more veggies into my diet. The thing is, I filled up on tons of them during lunch on Monday, and my stomach was burning for the rest of the day. Yet, acidic fruits don’t usually bother me — weird. Maybe I should invest in some V8 juice?
Do you like your veggies?
When are your usual meal times?
