Happy Flag Day!
Got some good sleep last night and feeling no after effects of the race yesterday. Of course, I would have felt it yesterday if there were problems. I drank a protein drink and biked to the gym:
|Barbell squat||3 sets of 8 with 55# bar||Lower body|
|Chin ups||3 sets of 2 !! 1 set of 1||Upper body|
|Pliet Squats||3 sets of 10 with 35# dumbbell||Lower body|
|Barbell chest press||3 sets of 12 at 45#||Chest|
|Captain’s Chair||3 sets of 10||Abs|
|Standing straight arm pull down||3 sets of 10 at 50#||Back|
|Reverse fly||3 sets of 10 with 12# DBs (24# total)||Shoulders|
|Kickbacks||3 sets of 10 with 15# DBs (30# total)||Triceps|
Then I did 20 minutes on the stationary bike because it was supposed to rain later in the day and I didn’t know if I would get a ride in. Then I biked home (redundant, no??)
I was hangry! In the mood for protein waffles, but with a different topping. I decided on bananas and chocolate fluff!
This was quite tasty, I have to say. I almost never have a banana in its whole state. Usually mashed and cooked into something. Not sure why, but they do make me burp when I eat them straight up. (Bet that’s a fact you didn’t need to know…)
Worked straight through to lunch. Yesterday was pretty slow, but not today! Took a break for lunch and made a tuna wrap with lemon pepper.
Don’t you love my snack bowl of Kashi. Uh oh… I had 2. It’s in the house.
I have this like/dislike thing with tuna going on. Not strong enough to be a love/hate relationship, which is why it comes in and out of my diet. I like the protein in tuna, and I like that it gives me Omega 3s, and sometimes I enjoy the taste. Then I decide I don’t like the taste, and I don’t like the smell, and I don’t care about my Omegas (I do take flax oil). Then it goes away for a while. Currently it just wavered back into the like after a hiatus.
Afternoon snackie with my latte:
Last of this chocolate. Now I am sad.
Now that I got that first race out of the way, I can think about a few more. The next one will be another 5K in July, which is sort of my race because it was my very first 5K 2 years ago. I know I am going to do the duathlon again for sure in October, and I even convinced John to do it as well!
Now we are just working on increasing those bike distances to do the 100-mile ride. We are hoping to do 70+ on Saturday. I got my coolest of cycling jerseys and I need to take a picture of me in it. I love it!
Dinner time was stir fry time. Cooked chicken, broccoli, coconut oil and stir fry sauce. Love those easy meals.
Blueberries representing! It’s almost picking time.
Tonight involved more of this:
I need to name my snack monster. I think Nibbler is in order.
Nice walk tonight and some cleaning to do!
Question: Do you have a food on the love/hate list?
