So I have to admit it…I’ve been pretty bad about documenting a whole day of eats. With the end of the month coming up and November deadlines for projects and applications approaching, I’ve been elbows-deep in excel spreadsheets, food blogs, and career websites. So while I have been snapping away, they’re kind of all over the place.
I’ve taken a quick break from bootcamp thanks to a killer cold/possible viral infection. Burpees + constant sneezing + my asthma just don’t mix. So workouts have been a little different the past few days. Yesterday I hit the elliptical and did a few rounds of dips off the edge of a chair and pushups. I used to be one of those people who pushed it even when I was sick, and that has always backfired. I’ve finally learned better and now always take a break when I’m feeling under the weather.
I think the easy workout yesterday helped because today I ran for the first time in awhile! 4 miles on the treadmill.
Do you seeeee meeeee?
Aside from my treadmill being haunted (it kept changing speeds on me!) it was a great run. I did speed intervals for the 4 miles ranging from 6.8 to 8.0. It was a sweaty one! It really got me wanting to start running again. I always go through phases.
Even though I’ve taken a few days off of bootcamp, I still feel like my muscles are stronger than ever. It’s an amazing feeling to see your hard work pay off! Please forgive the narcissistic selfie.
Well, I’m back on the breakfast sandwich bandwagon. My cholesterol was creeping up on me so I’m now using 1 egg instead of 2. Absolutely no difference and it’s one of my favorite breakfasts so I’m happy I can keep it around.
I decided to be a good food blogger and finally try Kombucha. Look, I really want to like it. It’s supposed to make you feel great! But I couldn’t get past the vinegar taste that the cranberry was trying desperately to cover. I know I have to finish it because it was suuuper pricey but man, my tastebuds aren’t going to be happy. I’ll report back if it has some miracle healing powers over me, though. That’d be nice!
My usual combination of tuna salad, lettuce and tomato, accompanied by a granny smith apple.
A little while later I ate another granny smith apple with peanut butter. I actually ended up only eating half the apple and throwing some chocolate chips in the peanut butter because, why not?
Dinner was some of my mom’s leftover tofu and vegetable pad thai. Big Bowl you have so many delicious things but I don’t care how great you are, you don’t make good pad thai. So there’s that. Eaten while watching the World Series (Go Red Sox!)
And just because I was a snack monster the past few days, one of my late-night snack obsessions:
Russ’ popcorn! Anyone who has had a sleepover at my house KNOWS my dad makes the best popcorn on the planet. This is the best late night snack and I enjoyed in Monday night after the game.
