I woke up yesterday and headed straight to the gym… but to the pool instead of the machines! I swim all the time during the summer and tend not to in the winter months because I don’t like walking home in the cold with wet hair. But I need to more. It is so much better for my knees than anything else! I did 30 minutes of straight laps, some stretching, and felt great- pain-free!
I wasn’t very hungry for breakfast after my weekend of over-eating, but I was craving lots of fruit. I made a smoothie with frozen mango and berries, a banana, and peanut butter. I also had a Honey Graham Kidz Bar.
I brought a turkey sandwich on Ezekial Bread with laughing cow cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mustard; a bag of baby carrots; 2 clementines; 1 string cheese; and a bag of TJ’s almonds, cashews, and whole grain crackers. It was the perfect amount to graze on during the day. The sandwich was the best part!
At 9 pm sharp, I came home to a lovely spread that Loren put together… his favorite, of course- burritos! I love them, too, so I was a happy camper. We used TJ’s whole grain tortillas and packed them full of brown rice, black beans, veggies, lowfat yogurt, and hot sauce.
He made a big salad on the side, too, because I requested lots of vegetables.
