I was in a pretty crappy mood all day. Nothing big just some personal stuff and a stressful work day. Nothing a good workout couldn’t fix! I still didn’t want to go today, but I made a plan that I would split my cardio up among the machines to make it less tedious.
For lunch today I enjoyed some mas ‘tater soup.
Plus a side salad of spinach, shredded carrots and feta w/ homemade dressing. Those were my legitimate veggies, in case you were curious.
I stewed, brewed and was just plain unpleasant until I had a telecon training session to attend at 2 p.m. I put my professional and perky face on for that, and passed that hour by quickly learning about a “fascinating” government search engine.
When I was all trained up, I went to the kitchen for a snack with staying power.
Yeah, this was pretty much a meal. I used a whole avocado because it was kind of teeny.
The plan is to eat large snacks in the afternoon in so that I won’t be a hungry beast at 5 p.m. And even though avocadoes are technically a fruit, I’m going to count that as another veggie for the day
The snack of whole grains plus healthy fats worked beautifully, and I was able to hit the gym right after work and get in a happy little workout: 20 minutes running on the ‘mill, 20 minutes intervals on the ‘lliptical, and 20 minutes reading on the ‘cycle. It went from intense, to energizing, to recovery. I loved every minute of it.
I’ve been cooking as I’ve been typing up this post, so I’m off to eat!
Do you snack? What’s your go-to snack with staying power?
