I am really good at taking photos of my breakfast at home but most days, at least 6 a week, I eat lunch and dinner at school or work, so I have to pack my meals and wind up forgetting to take photos of them! I have a photo of my eggs and tofu from each day this past week but only one of my lunch…#fail. Once again you get to see my typical Tuesday, but this week I went out for lunch so it’s 3% more exciting than normal!
AM Workout: 30 minutes stepper and 45 minutes of chest and arms. My shoulders were sore from a strength workout with my brother on Monday but I powered through a chest and arm workout and actually improved my bench press! I feel like I’m getting a lot stronger, particularly in upper body strength which is such an awesome feeling!
Breakfast: Egg whites with dill/paprika/garlic powder and parmesan cheese. I also had grilled tempeh, raspberries, and coffee. I usually do blog stuff on my computer as I eat breakfast. It’s a terrible habit but no one else is usually up when I’m eating so I get lonely. 😛
Lunch: I met a friend on Whyte Avenue for lunch! I walked the 15 minutes from my office to Cafe Mosaics and after browsing all of the delicious vegan and vegetarian food decided to get the tofu stir-fry and an Americano with soy milk to drink. It was incredible!
Afternoon Snack: I will never actually remember to take a photo of my greek yogurt/protein powder combo, let’s just all accept that. I also had an apple, but I assume you know what an apple looks like. It was a good protein-packed snack that held me over until after spin class!
PM Workout: I taught an hour of spin. It was sweaty. I LOVED IT.
Post-spin dinner: Frozen blueberry ‘nice cream.’ It’s almost a nightly thing now. I save some protein and carb macros for the evening and enjoy a delicious cool bowl of ‘nice cream’ before bed. This just happened to be my dinner yesterday after spin and so I added some peanut butter for a little more staying power.
Double workout days mean my protein has to be on fleek. I need those amino acids helping my muscles recover! I also had glutamine after spin but you’ve seen my Umoro shaker bottle far too many times. 😉 If you missed my post yesterday I chatted about my nutrition so far in this marathon training cycle!
