Early RiserPosted: December 23, 2009
So how cute is the g-mail team?
I wrote this yesterday for y’all to make up for my lack in posting!
Hello and sorry for the delay in posting!
I was up at 4:15AM this morning to hit my gym for an extra early morning session. I really like getting my workout out of the way and on with my day, but I don’t think I could do 4:15 every day. I was feeling pretty good throughout the day and went to bed at 9pm so I might use it as a switch up option in the future.
On my way out the door I had a slice of sprouted grain and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl.
I was on the t-mill and going a little before 5. Only downside? I forgot my headphones! Nick had gotten me really nice headphone for my birthday last year ($25!) I need ones that don’t fall out of my ears while I am running, and they started to last week. I finally threw them away yesterday and forgot to grab Nick’s this morning. Try running 1:20 without headphones or tvs with subtitles. What is a girl to do? I did my usual mix up with a little more mix. 20min regular easy run, 20min hill climb while flipping through people (I have a really hard time reading and exercising), 3 mile neg splits, 10min hill climb. I always feel so good when I am done with my run!
I rewarded myself with a grande non-fat one pump of each mocha and peppermint latte.
Strangely I wasn’t very hungry after my workout so I waited a bit to eat my breakfast at work.
I made up some overnight oats to take in this morning.
Chocolate banana protein oats!
Chobani leftovers, almond milk, banana, chocolate protein powder and a little TJs Fruit and Fiber Medley for a crunchy top. I wish there had been a little more milk in there…it was a little chewy for my liking, but still yummy!
I was done with breakfast around 8:30 and didn’t feel the need to shovel my lunch…interesting concept!
I had leftover frittata, an orange and a cheese stick.
I also had an un-pictured truffle to round out my meal. Funny how something so fake tasting can taste so good!
I had a little bit larger than usual PM snack because I was heading straight home after work and when I do this I usually head right for food!
Chobani peach with my leftover cereal from breakfast this morning.
I think I got enough yogurt in today!
Speaking of yogurt…Oikos just announced they are making a chocolate and caramel flavor Greek yogurt, um heaven!!!!!!
Nick and I had our Christmas when I got home and he got me a bunch of great stuff for delicious food making and another great book about food politics. I will be reading it over vacation! Thanks love!
We had to eat and run tonight because we were meeting up for a surprise birthday part in the city…Nick wanted Chipotle, and I was curious how healthy I could make it.
I really like there tortillas so I knew that would be my carb portion (I really wish they had WW tortillas! Or at least 1/2 and 1/2?). I do love how the place is moving quickly to sustainable and organic.
I got a vegetarian burrito with black beans, pinto beans, peppers and onions (yuck the onions were raw!), pico, corn, cheese (only thing I would take out because I couldn’t taste it), lettuce and guac.
Huge! I used to get such a different burrito there!
The party was a great success and it was actually really nice to see everyone before the holidays and catch up!
We came home I packed and little and hit the hay…I actually did really well for being up at 4:15AM!
This morning I wanted something warm to eat!
Oatbran, Tjs fruit and nut medley, Kashi H2H, banana, flax, POM arils, PB.
I am not sure how blogging will go at home…we do not have wireless, but I might do drive bys at the Starbucks just to get the live writer to post 🙂
Happy Holidays Everyone!
