Hi! How is everyone doing on this ridiculously hot and humid lovely Thursday? Yesterday was great. I started out fairly tired because I stayed up late reading The Help. Then I kept myself up thinking about it. Which repeated again last night. The book is that good! I’m about halfway through and I love it.
Anyway, yesterday I dragged myself out of bed for a slooooow two mile run. It was a beautiful morning; cool, slightly breezy, with the sun shining but not all up in your grill, know what I mean? For whatever reason I just couldn’t get going. I suppose I’m used to running in the afternoon but still, it was a little disconcerting. I have a three-miler on tap today with my running buddy Melissa (not at our normal shady route, gulp) so I’m hoping it will go a little smoother.
It’s a lot shorter but I like it. Aside from the fact that it isn’t really wash and go- I’m going to have to start using a blow dryer again 😉 Do any of you have any product recommendations for short-ish hair- pomade/texture type stuff? I’m not even really sure what I’m looking for- I’m a little out of my element.
Last night brought hot yoga. Our regular instructor was back. Thank the high heavens. He is British, and instructions coming from a British accent just sound easier. Orrr it’s just in my head. In any event, it was a fantastic class and I felt myself going deeper into the poses. I even attempted toe stand for the first time in that class (I’ve tried it in Bikram once, but never in last night’s class- he is too strict!)
So, this isn’t a food blog, but I wanted to share with you guys what I typically eat/drink on any given day. Wednesdays are fun days because I always have sushi after yoga- I don’t get home until 9:30 so I need something quick and light. So, here is what I take in on a typical Wednesday:
My day starts with a mug of coffee on my hour-long commute into work. It makes the commute a lot more bearable. I use organic half and half and either two teaspoons of REAL sugar or one tablespoon of agave nectar. It varies depending on the type of coffee I make.
Then it’s time for breakfast:
Raspberry chobani greek yogurt (my favorite flavor, although the flavor and brand varies based upon what is available) and a cup of organic granola (flavor varies as well, yesterday’s was maple brown sugar. I usually eat this around 9:00 A.M.
Around 10:00 A.M. I am hungry again.
Luna bar to the rescue! My favorite flavor is chocolate peppermint stick. Yum. At this point I also take my fish oil tablet:
Then at 11 it’s lunch time! Normally I’ll have leftovers if I’ve cooked but I was out of town this past weekend so it was one of my favorite Amy’s meals:
Margherita pizza! Love this lunch. All day long I’m guzzling water from this bottle:
My lululemon sigg I love running water bottle! It’s 32 ounces and yesterday I had three of those plus 10 oz from my handheld during my run plus a bit from a fourth fill. I typically drink at least 100 ounces a day 🙂 I also tried some coconut water yesterday during yoga (unphotographed), but I didn’t like the flavor (mango-peach) so I didn’t finish it.
Around 1:30 it was snack time.
Organic granny smith apple with a tablespoon of mighty mapes peanut butter. Love that stuff!
Snack numero 2 was around 4:30:
I had this amount times 2. I love cashews. They may be my favorite nut (TWSS!)
And then after yoga I had a delicious dinner:
A salad with Annie’s raspberry dressing, little bit of feta and some walnuts (sometimes I throw blueberries on there if I have them), edamame with a bit of salt and tempura shrimp sushi. Deeee-ricious!
Lastly, before bed, I make sure to have some dark chocolate. Oh yes. Sometimes red wine accompanies it (okay, most times) but not last night.
And that, my friends, is what I eat on any given day. Probably more than you ever wanted to know about my eating habits. I don’t count calories and I try to include fruits and veggies, but I’m a work in progress. I almost feel like I’m constantly eating and I’m never hungry (except when it’s time to eat, of course :p ) What do you typically eat on any given day?
Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!
