Two back-to-back bonus boot camps Friday: 5:30-6:30 a.m. AND 6:30-7:30 a.m. at Broad Ripple High School track. $10 unless you are making up for the pre-paid LivRiboot camp we missed on Monday = ) Let me know if you wanna join us!
I promised I would start doing this to show that you can eat and still see results. Here is what I had to eat today...
Breakfast (194 calories)
One scrambled egg with 1/2 ounce cheese on a half a multi-grain English Muffin
16 ounces of coffee with skim milk & splenda
Post-Workout Snack (130 calories)
Atkins Caramel Nut Chew Bar
Lunch (580 calories)
Pesto Tuna Salad Sandwich with Sun-Dried Tomatoes (see recipe under "Whats For Dinner")
Snack (274 calories)
homemade fruit smoothie made with 1 cup mixed berries, 1 cup skim milk, protein powder
Dinner (660 calories)
Sirloin Steak marinated in soy and teriyaki sauce over brown rice and a side of asparagus
Dessert (250 calories)
Low fat ice cream sandwich and a glass of red wine
MINUS 400 calories (what I burned during my workout)
The bad news is I went WELL over in my cholesterol, sodium, and sugar intake which is why it is so helpful to track this stuff. I'll try and do better next time...maybe once I can actually get to the grocery store and not have to choose from the 5 things I could find in my fridge!
I had NO food, and I mean NO food in my fridge today. So with a little creativity and a lot of scrounging, I came up with this and it was really really good!
Mix it all in a bowl, slap it in between 2 pieces 100% whole wheat toast and you have yourself a lunch! I added a side of grilled asparagus on the side just because that was the only vegetable had in my house =
Calorie count = about 580 (with the asparagus). Wanna cut it down? Eat half the can of tuna or one slice of bread instead of 2!
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! My weekend was probably the best I"ve had in a long time, spent alongside a big group of family and friends at my parent's lake house in Ohio. Great company, great entertainment, great food, and LOTS of laughter and relaxation. I hope everyone else got to sleep in, go for a run without your watch, and savor a few peaceful moments this Holiday weekend like I did.
If you are like me and most everyone else, you probably ate and drank a little (or a lot!) this weekend. Resist the urge to crash diet to make up for it. Everyone deserves to splurge a little now and again and one weekend won't put a huge dent in your previous efforts. Just focus this week on getting your workouts in, making healthful food choices, and putting your fork down when you are full. You will be back on track in no time!
I'm posting this link from Women Food and God author Geneen Roth that may help you this week! Have a GREAT one!
