Good afternoon! Today has been one of those days when everything is crazy and busy. I am finally home and able to sit down at my computer!
- 1.31 miles treadmill
- Butts and Guts – 60 minutes
Total Pile on the Miles: 42.9 miles
Typical morning at the gym today. Ran on the treadmill for a short time and then went to Butts and Guts class.
After the gym, I picked up the last two Christmas gifts for the kids! Yes! I am done Christmas shopping for them. Now, I just everyone else on my list left to shop for.
Danny is the hardest to shop for. You’d think that being my husband, he’d be the easiest. But, no. He never tells me anything that he wants, and I hate just buying gift cards. I have a couple of ideas this year, but it be nice to have a few more.
Besides Danny, my in-laws are super hard to shop for. I like people like my mom, who just give me a nice and easy list to shop from. I do like Christmas shopping for others, but I want to get them something they actually want, and that’s kind of hard if they don’t tell you what they want.
I also picked up some hummus at the store because it’s been way too long since I’ve had some.
Lunch this afternoon was peanut butter french toast, egg whites, and blueberry Greek yogurt.
I usually keep track of how many grams of protein I eat on a daily basis.
Eating enough protein is something that I really struggle with, so keeping track of it helps me to know if I need to be eating more protein.
Protein is good for you because it helps you feel fuller longer, helps aid in weight loss, and helps rebuild your muscles after strength training.
I actually ate 100 grams of protein yesterday. I don’t think that has ever happened to me before, but I did have the Special K protein cereal in the morning and as an afternoon snack (1.5 cups = 20 grams of protein!) To get my protein in I usually stick to peanut butter, Greek yogurt, cereal, fish, and sometimes cheese.
I hope you have a good rest of your day!
Questions of the day:
- Who is the hardest person you know to shop for?
- Do you struggle with getting enough of a certain vitamin or food? Protein, fruits, veggies, fiber?
- Do you eat meat? What’s your favorite? My favorite is the salmon stuffed with crab that Target sells. But I can only eat it once in a while or I get sick of it quickly.
