Today's plan is to do the lower body portion of the Jackie Warner DVD, my MuTu exercises, and meet up with a friend to run the bridges early this afternoon. I'm anxious to see how my legs handle a harder-than-usual run yesterday, legs day today, AND a bridge run. I guess I'll be able to let you know tomorrow.
On the food front, I haven't been as strict as I would like to be but I am making improvements in my choices overall. I've had some cheating with cheeses and a cookie at MOPS yesterday. I also made some clean vegan fudge, using a recipe I found on a blog I've been intrigued by but definitely ate more than one portion of those treats yesterday. They were SOOO good and I have an issue with self-control. This morning I made some banana bread as a thank-you for a friend and definitely took way too many licks of the batter. Woops! It was definitely not a clean treat. I'm not throwing in the towel but recommiting right now to get back on track. Baby steps right??
So...my meal plan for the rest of the day is:
- Protein smoothie made with 1 small banana, 1 scoop raw protein powder (a sample I'm trying in the search to find an all-natural protein powder that tastes good), some frozen berries, ice, and a tablespoon of cocoa powder.
- Mixed greens topped with grape tomatoes, radishes, cucumber slices, beets, carrots, chick peas, and half a can of chunk-white water-packed tuna. I'll use balsamic vinegar and olive oil as my dressing and have a side of wasa crisp bread.
- Roast beef and arugula in a light whole-wheat flatout wrap with a side of roasted beets and garlic.
- 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt with 1 tsp chia seeds, 1 tsp almond butter, 1/3 banana, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder.
