Today has been an extremely slow day. I mean it dragggggged. On days that are slow, I always have the tendency to want to snack, even when I’m not hungry. It’s that comfort feeling that a lot of us fall victim to which can thwart our efforts to get toned, lose weight or just be healthy. I wasn’t hungry all morning since my protein shake kept me satisfied, but I did want to snack on something, so I grabbed a few almonds and raisins from the container of trail mix I bought last night. I don’t understand why people always pick the raisins out. GIVE THEM TO ME! I love love love raisins. I can pop them like candy. 🙂
1:00 pm rolled around and I still wasn’t hungry, but I knew I’d need fuel for my lunch time workout. I went for my strawberry banana Chobani yogurt and threw a little bit of the trail mix on top for a nice crunch and chew (hellllo raisins :))
I had another great workout at the gym, but sadly gym crush wasn’t there. It was actually pretty dead at the gym, which I won’t complain about. I still managed to enjoy a few pieces of eye candy lifting weights. Hey fellas, thanks for the entertainment and making my workout fly by.
- 1.5 mile run
- 2 sets of 25 medicine ball sit-ups
- 20 medicine ball side-to-side sit-ups
- 2 sets of 13 lumberjack squats and lumberjack chops
- 10 minutes nordic trainer
Again, my appetite hasn’t been present today, so after the gym I snacked on a Fuji apple and tried my protein shot I received from my Bulu Box, but after one sip, I wanted to spit it out. It was thick and syrupy and it just didn’t taste healthy. I wanted to drink it so I could get protein since I wasn’t hungry for a meal, but I just couldn’t hang with the big boys today.
Since I’m possibly taking a spinning class tonight at 6, I just polished off my turkey, ham and spinach sandwich as a very late lunch/early dinner to get me through the gym.
I’m tired right now so we’ll see if I decide to take spinning. I haven’t been since last Tuesday, and couldn’t the other day since I was in Boston, but I really don’t want to kill time between 5 and 6. I park in the gym parking lot for work so the late class really screws me over.
There’s a cute guy who I met online that goes there and wanted me to go last night, but he works out at 8 pm. That’s too late for me! It’s practically grandma’s bedtime. There’s a chance we’ll meet tonight. I’ll be curious how tonight pans out!
