Today's my last day of work before leaving on my trip tomorrow morning! I'm excited to be away from work but not really too excited about the trip. We're trying to see a lot of people when we're back so our schedule's jam-packed and we're not staying in any one place longer than a night. Plus there's going to be a LOT of eating out and I've been struggling with my eating so much lately. I'm bringing lots of snacks and bars to stash in my purse since we're going to 3 baseball games and I'd rather have a Clif Z bar than a hotdog anyways. (Don't get me wrong, I love a good hotdog cooked on the grill but hotdogs at most ballparks aren't that good.) I am taking my running stuff and I am going to try my darnedest to squeeze in some runs or walks while we're there. It will be good to see everybody but I really hate going back to Oklahoma or Texas with Stephen because between the two of us, there's too many people to see and someone always ends up feeling short-changed.
I did some yoga last night and today the weather is sunny and warmer so I'll definitely be doing a run at lunch. I've missed it so much (running and warm weather)!! Since I've been getting to work at 6:30 I've decided to eat 2 smaller breakfasts in the mornings instead of my usual bigger breakfast and mid-morning snack. It's roughly the same amount of calories but splitting them up more evenly. Hopefully, this will give me some better fuel for my runs...worth a shot anyways.
Activity: 5.5 mile run--may try for 7 today, we'll see what the weather's like
Breakfast 1: 1 english muffin with 1 tbsp jam and 1/2 tbsp peanut butter
Breakfast 2: 1/4 cup oatmeal with 1 banana, cinnamon, and 1 tbsp peanut butter
Lunch: Lean Cuisine Roasted Turkey Breast, 1 cup peas, 1 1/2 cups green beans
Afternoon Snack: 1 Clif Z bar
Dinner: Subway--6 inch sandwich and apples
Evening Snack: 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt with 1 banana and flax seed
Have a great week everyone and I'll be back next Wednesday!!
