Wednesday again! A little later with my what I ate Wednesday post, but I spent a bit of time fooling around with some graphics – you’ll see later on! So let’s get right to it – Tuesday’s eats!
I’m loving everything on toast these days, not sure why. Since I have no toaster, I make toast in a dry skillet, and it works like a charm – topped with cocoa protein frosting – 1/2 scoop protein powder, about 1-2T almond milk, 1t nut butter, 1t cocoa powder. Yum.
green drink at work! Sun warrior, kale, cucumber, spirulina, chia, mint, water. Surprisingly, I didn’t get that many weird looks.
lunch. Don’t be fooled, these are hardly summer rolls
More like italian style! greens, quinoa, soysage, tomato, basil. With tomato sauce/hummus mix for dipping. Yes, I made them on rice paper wraps, and yes, it was delicious. Take that, sandwich wraps!
Another Trader Joe’s love! (really I should promote for them)
Then I snacked on an apple, and some almonds to hold me over until I got home.
Then I was still quite hungry, so I snacked on some veggies and hummus while dinner was cooking. But, then by the time dinner rolled around, I wasn’t all that hungry!
In the past, I would have pushed past it – I would have said I need to eat a normal dinner, and forced it down. But not this time. This is me, trying to listen to my body – and body wanted something small and simple.
sweet potato with lentil, cucumber “chips” for a bit of fresh.
And then a spoonful of PB later to take hunger-edge off before bed. I was really proud of myself for really taking the time to think about the hunger cues my body was sending me. Pat on the back for that one!
Fitness Time! I actually have a little workout to share today, I did it this morning. I wasn’t really feeling up to getting up early to work out before work, but I know myself – and I know that unless I have a workout class scheduled in the evening, there’s no way I’m going to get that workout in. Motivation seriously declines as the day goes on.
So. I have a 12 minute tabata workout to share! For those of you who aren’t familiar with tabata training, you can read more here. [[disclaimer – I am NOT a fitness professional, just a girl who likes to work out]]
I was certainly sweaty and out of breath at the end! It’s super effective as long as you push hard.
I have really been enjoying my home workouts – but I miss lifting heavy! I still feel strong, but a different kind of strong, and I miss the feeling of pure strength exercise – pull ups, squats, deadlifts, etc. But soon (monday) I’ll have Best Body Bootcamp, which will hopefully kick my butt. And I can’t wait.
How well do you listen to your body?
Are you a fan of tabata?
