Went to the gym this morning a little after 7 am and busted out 60 minutes. Forty minutes of running and incline intervals, 10 minutes of the stair-master (or step mill? I dunno- the one that looks like a mini-escalator) and 10 minutes on the elliptical.
Had tons of energy today, seeing as I loaded up on a bunch of carb-heavy snacks all yesterday afternoon/evening. I should've planned a good dinner, but Fridays make me lazy and laziness breeds bad eating habits. On the upside, I eventually got restless and did some deadlifts, squats, lunges, chest & shoulder presses and then turned on the digital music station on Comcast and danced for a while to the classic R&B station. Sometimes I just gotta shake my booty!
After the gym and a shower, I came home and made breakfast:
In the mix:
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 diced apple, warmed with cinnamon
- 1 small mashed banana
- 1/4 cup pumpkin
- 1 scoop Biggest Loser vanilla protein powder
- 1 tbsp. unsweetened reduced-fat coconut
- splash of vanilla extract
Tonight my mom and her boyfriend are taking me, Doug and my sister out for my pre-birthday dinner (my b-day is on Monday) and we're going to my favorite Mexican restaurant, Estela's. Can't wait. Definitely planning on having a margarita (or two), chips & salsa, a stuffed sopapilla with chicken and green chile and probably more sopapillas with honey, if I haven't exploded by that point.
That said, I'm gonna try to keep my snacks light between now and then. But after that ridiculously filling bowl of oats, I have a feeling I'm gonna be good to go for several hours.
Hope everyone is having a good Saturday!
