It's official--I got my Canada ticket this morning so I'll be gone on vacation July 24-August 16!! I'm excited!! That means I've got about 3 months to work hard so I look good in my swimsuit!! I'll be in a swimsuit before then but at the cabin you pretty much wear your swimsuit the entire day.
On to other great news, I thoroughly enjoyed my run yesterday at lunch! I ran almost the whole thing but at a slower pace than usual (right now on my 5.5 mile runs I'm averaging about a 12 minute/mile). It was a little chillier than I was expecting too so I kept running so I wouldn't get cold!! I want to complain about the weather but I know we're just a few short weeks away from 100 degree days and sweating milliseconds after being outside so I won't complain about the chillier weather...I'll just try to enjoy right now. I'm thinking that I need to get a hydration belt for those 100 degree days. I didn't have one last year but I wasn't running nearly as far as I'm running now. Being in the heat for at least an hour...I'll definitely need something and carrying a bottle is just awkward to me.
Anyone use a hydration belt or hydration-type equipment and have some suggestions??
I did really well on my food intake yesterday. I did have an unplanned Starbucks espresso truffle after lunch but with the espresso and dark chocolate, one of those is just enough. (And they're not too bad nutritionally-60 calories a piece.) And I actually had a lot of calories left over after dinner last night so I had banana pudding as dessert (1 banana, 1 serving ff sugar free vanilla pudding, and 1/2 serving Annie's Bunny Grahams) and it was delicious!! Today I'm going to follow my eating plan again--I made it yesterday, I can make it through today!!
Breakfast: 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 banana, 2 tbsp flax seeds, 1 tbsp cashew butter, and a ton of cinnamon
Mid-morning Snack: 1 orange, 5 strawberries, 1 cup pineapple
Lunch: Veggie wrap (100 calories Sun Dried Tomato tortilla with mustard, 1 cup spinach, and 1 cup bell peppers), 1/2 cup yogurt with 1 cup Kashi GoLean cereal, espresso truffle?
Afternoon Snack: Clif Z bar
Dinner: Leftovers (haven't decided what I'm in the mood for but we have the lasagna rollups, fajita burgers, and pomengranate and walnut chicken leftover), glass of wine or vodka and diet tonic
I've been craving chocolate donuts (those little ones from Hostess or whoever) so I've told myself that on Friday morning if I still want them, I can have a small package for breakfast. Anyways, I'll try to post the scone and lasagna rollup recipes today for the fantastic Sara!!
