It was nice to be back on track with healthy eating yesterday. My body feels so much better when I eat healthy foods with the occasional treat than it does when I eat not-so-good foods. Sticking to my healthy eating last night, I made spaghetti squash for dinner last night.
I topped about two cups of spaghetti squash with marinara sauce, broccoli, and parmesan cheese. I think the secret to good spaghetti squash is to not overcook it. The last time I made squash, it was a bit too soft. This time, I baked it in the oven for about 35 minutes and it came out perfect with a little bit of a crunch to it.
Yesterday’s Evening Workout
- 2.3 miles, treadmill
- yoga – 60 minutes
I got to the gym a little before yoga started yesterday, so I jogged and walked on the treadmill for 2.3 miles. Running wasn’t really the best idea because I had just finished eating dinner. Then, I headed to my last yoga class for a while. All the Biggest Loser workouts are scheduled for the only days that yoga is available – Wednesdays and Saturdays – so yoga has to go on hold for a while, which I am kind of disappointed about.
After yoga, I came home and had some almonds and Greek yogurt to get some protein in.
- 2.2 miles treadmill (HIIT)
I only had a short time to workout this morning, and when I’m short on time, I like to do a high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout to get my heart rate up. I walked for 2 minutes and then ran at a faster-than-normal pace for one minute for a total of 2.2 miles. It might have been a short distance, but I was super sweaty by the time I was done.
Post workout, I had a thinkThin bar. Yum.
The reason I only had a short time to workout this morning was because Jaden was signed up to do a mini bike Indy. Luckily, it was being held about a mile from the gym.
Even though it rained today, the kids had a lot of fun. There was a bike wash station:
And an obstacle course.
They even had a super sweet fuel station set up:
At the end of the Indy, all of the kids got a certificate and a little trophy. Jaden loved it and had such a fun time.
Questions of the day:
- What’s your favorite workout to do when your short on time?
- Have you ever gotten a trophy for anything?
- Any plans for this wonderful Thursday?
