It always seems like traveling weekends are the WORST for my eating habits…so this week is going to be a bit of a reset! While I am not good at eating completely CLEAN, I am going to strive for clean-ish… I did get a chance to “meal prep” a little bit on Monday evening, so this is a typical day of meals for the rest of the week!
Just another day in the life!
[breakfast] apple + almond butter + Erin Baker’s Endurance Tri Berry Granola
Since I am still not always great about taking my new meds early in the morning before work or days that I don’t run, I needed a quick, easy breakfast once I got to work. Some days, this would typically be a smoothie. But today, it was a sliced apple with some almond butter and granola sprinkled on top 🙂 So good!! While granola isn’t always the greatest element of a snack/meal, at least I could read and understand all of the ingredients on the bag – wholesome 🙂
My morning snack didn’t quite happen…but I was feeling a little hungry before I wanted to head out for my lunch run. So I grabbed one of my Honey Stinger waffles. I was able to snag a couple of the gluten-free cinnamon waffles at the Expo last weekend 🙂 Again, not always the cleanest option, but most of the ingredients are in my cabinets at home… 🙂
[workout] While I should have shuffled out the door this morning in the mid-60 degree warmth, I decided to get out for a HOTTER lunch run…whyyyyyy.
I guess I am adding double stress right off the bat this week! Heat AND interval workout… Well, it went well! Yeah, it was HOT…but there was shade. My HR averaged in the mid-150s and was in zone 5 for about half of my workout. Increased stress, check! Now we wait and see if anything goes silly…
Wowza!! Summer is here!! • This week, I am playing with adding some intervals to my workouts. Since I have been symptom free with easy paced, low HR miles – I am seeing how my body reacts (or doesn't react) to more stressful workouts. Wish me luck!! @adidasrunning #UltraBoostX #bibravepro • #halfmarathon #training #hhr2017 #hospitalhillhalf @hospitalhillrun #volunteer
[post-run snack] EAS protein drink
After my run, before my actual food lunch, I guzzled down an EAS AdvantEDGE shake. A little protein goes a long way after a workout!
[lunch] lettuce wraps – romaine + sliced turkey + tomato + cucumber
I love simple meals that are quick to make. So while little man was throwing a fit this morning, I made up a couple lettuce wraps for lunch. I also had premade guacamole and a whole avocado that I planned on adding, but I forgot and ate most of them before I realized… Oh well, more healthy fats for another meal 🙂
I hard boiled A LOT of eggs last night in the hopes that I could bump up my protein intake throughout this week. I decided to add some guacamole to the egg whites and also top a WASA cracker with fresh avocado 🙂 So good! I am doing everything I can to stay out of the other office space – there was a mass e-mail about cheesecake…must stay strong…
Since we headed out to a family soccer game after work & daycare, little man and I had a quick snack dinner…
When we got home, he proceeded to eat another sandwich, crackers, another banana, part of an apple, and milk…growing boy!
I really enjoy winding down the day with a glass of fresh kombucha 🙂
