Guten morgen, bloggers! I just talked to Ari, who is in Germany right now. Pretty cool, huh? I wish I could be there so badly!
Yesterday my will to get up and out of the house was dragging, so I had a little help from Mr. Chocolate. He’s a good friend like that.
The gym had to wait a little because, since it was the first day the water wouldn’t freeze right off, there was a huge line at the car wash. It might have been my first time going to a car wash all by myself. Just might.
My workout at the gym was pretty good, but nice and easy. I didn’t bring the little attachment that clips onto the strap for my HRM, so I don’t have exact stats, but roughly:
1.15 mile run, @ 5 mph (12:00 mile)
Total calories burned: 350 (ish)
I came home and had a banana (Andy Warhol anyone?)
Dinner was a big salad with romaine, spinach, arugula, chickpeas, a Morningstar Farms Griller’s Prime burger, and a laughing cow.
With light sundried tomato vinaigrette for dipping:
Wine and grapes (I’m so classy):
And a heated up Chocolate Chip Z bar for dessert.
So, why is it that late at night, when my defenses are down, I CRAVE carbs? In high school, cereal was my go-to late night snack, and I guess that just got ingrained into my brain that once it’s late and I’m tired, it’s time to gorge on cereal. Which is exactly what I did. Twice. Two bowls of Fiber One/ Oatmeal Squares/ Mueslix with skim milk. Ugh! Tomorrow is another day, tomorrow is another day…
I thought about just having a yogurt or something for breakfast, but took what I know is the smarter road and had a breakfast cookie. I’ll just make sure I get in a lot of fruits and veggies throughout the day.
Well, I’m off to shower and then go have brunch with my grandparents. Enjoy the last day of the weekend!
