This morning, I started out my day with a glass of lemon water and a Chobani caramel pineapple yogurt.
Oh my gosh, that caramel pineapple yogurt was the best Chobani yogurt that I have ever tried. Usually, I’m not the type the person who thinks of fruit or yogurt as a dessert – I think ice cream and chocolate are desserts, but I could see myself eating this yogurt as a dessert. It was delicious.
I drink a glass of water as soon as I wake up every single morning. I add a lemon slice when I have them on hand. This helps keeps me hydrated as well as jumps starts my metabolism for the day.
And I will admit that Danny brings me my cup of water to me every morning while I’m sleeping, so I literally drink it the second I wake up before my feet even hit the floor. He’s such a great husband. I cook dinner every night, so it’s kind of an even trade-off, right? :)
- 4.18 miles treadmill, walked – 60 minutes
I used today as a “take it easy day,” and just walked on the treadmill. My shoulder hurts and running just makes it hurt more, plus my body is just tired, so I just walked.
Last night, I iced my shoulder and took Advil. This morning I put the heating pad on it, and took more Advil. I plan to ice it on and off during the day. Even after my walk it was pretty sore.
You know how you typically burn one hundred calories per mile, whether you walk or run? Well, that was exactly true today because according to the treadmill, I walked 4.18 miles and burned 4.18 calories.
I’m the kind of person who tends to stick to the same foods everyday. When I find something that’s good and easy to make, I usually eat the same thing for a long period of time. Lately that’s been Special K, bagel thins and egg whites, PB french toast, and veggie omelets. Every single day.
I decided to look through my old food journals and find some foods that I like but haven’t eaten in a while. So, after the gym, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up ingredients for flatbread pizzas and cheese & veggie quesadillas.
I used to eat those two foods a lot but haven’t had them in a while. This time I bought the smaller tortillas that are 50 calories a piece, and I’ll use two to make the quesadillas. I bought pre-cooked chicken to add to Danny’s. I also found pineapple salsa, which I can’t wait to try.
I have frozen tilapia that I think the pineapple salsa would be good on too. I like pineapple and mango salsas better than regular salsa. Maybe because I’m not a huge tomato fan.
Have a great weekend!
