I can’t promise you that my food in this post will be as pretty as these waffles, but it was a delicious day of eats yesterday. I was ridiculously sore from Monday night spin when I woke up yesterday but throughout the day I loosened up and had a great day of fitness… and food.
Pre-breakfast workout: 60 minutes of upper body strength training (mainly biceps and triceps) and 30 minutes on the stepper.
Breakfast: Egg whites (cooked with parsley), avocado, and strawberries. The usual… I get protein, healthy fats, and carbs in this meal which means it is both filling and SO tasty.
Post-breakfast workout: A crisp (aka freezing cold) 2.6 mile walk to the bus station to head to school. I love walking in the morning with an audiobook, the time flies! I started walking home after school but my brother picked me up on the way when he saw me walking. It worked out perfectly because I had to stop and pick up a package from the post-office and I was kind of dreading carrying it home!
Lunch: The most amazing salad (that looks repulsive) with spinach, strawberries, blackberries, feta, walnuts, and a pesto tofu sausage. OH MY GOD. I have been on a raspberry-infused balsamic vinegar kick as my salad dressing lately.
Snack: I brought popcorn and dark chocolate for an afternoon snack. I forgot that I brought home Quebec-made dark chocolate from my trip to Montreal so it was a nice surprise to find it in my pantry! This one is a mint dark chocolate and it was unreal.
Pre-dinner workout: I got home and after I picked up a package of new shoes I was dying to test them out so I asked my mom if she wanted to go for a quick run. We ran 3.1 miles (9:01 min/mile) in the wind and sunshine before dinner.
Dinner: A snack plate of smoked tofu, carrots, cauliflower, and beet crackers with hummus. YUM.
Post-dinner workout: My mom and I joined two of our neighbours (and their three dogs) for a lovely 3 mile evening stroll. I was SO COLD after being chilled from the earlier run but it was a great evening for a walk. The wind had died down and it was still light out (thanks DST!) so we got some good catching up and exercise in!
I never include it in WIAW but most nights I have a cup of tea before bed. ALWAYS caffeine free and usually peppermint but last night it was a cup of lemon camomile. 🙂
Do you run/exercise in the mornings or evenings?
Do you get to workout at lunch ever? HOW DOES THIS WORK (I sweat so easily!)? 😉
