How is it only Hump Day? I feel like this week has dragged, but maybe that’s just because I’m looking forward to happy hour with Lindsay on Friday. One guess where we’re going. Yup, zeee farm!
I started my morning off with a 3.5 mile run, kettlebell squats, and core work. I finished it off with a protein shake before settling into breakfast around 10.
I enjoyed a carb loaded bowl of pb&j banana proatmeal. This sucker hit the spot, and kept me full for several hours.
Since my first race is 10 days away (April 20th ahhhh!), I finally told myself it was time to kick up my outdoor runs to prep myself. I had planned on taking an early lunch and running by the river today, so I enjoyed an apple cinnamon Chobani with 2 tbsp of prepared cold brown rice in it for a little extra staying power.
If you’ve never tried brown rice in your yogurt before, then you must! This randomly came to me about half a year ago when I was bored with my rice. I’ve tried it also warmed in my yogurt and that’s a definite NO! Ick!
The bozo that I am forgot the one necessary article of clothing for running – a bra – so instead, I made a quick egg sandwich and downed it before heading to GNC to grab a tub of casein.
I was cringing about running into the GNC employee who hates me. Actually, it’s more of a mutual hate. He gives me attitude when I tell him I don’t need his help, which only makes me despise him. Well, it was my lucky day because there’s a new babe working there during the lunch hour.
The rest of my daily snacks included an apple and almonds before I headed to a local trail for an evening run.
Post run, I hit up Shaw’s to grab a few food items, and there was a realtor outside trying to get her name out and I scored a free Dunkin Donuts gift card! Whaddup!
It’s enough for a free coffee, but since I’m anti-coffee, I’m thinking a breakfast sandwich will be in my future!
I munched on rice chips with pb, and cold leftover asparagus and brussels for dinner. It was a hodgepodge, but because I got home late and wanted to try out my casein as a dessert, I kept dinner light.
This was my first time trying casein after much research and Instagram envy, I picked up a smooth vanilla flavor instead of the chocolate cake batter (gahhhhh it was so hard turning that one down!), so that I could make any flavor combos with it.
I threw in several frozen strawbs and bananas and topped it off with jimmies of course! This was the perfect night time treat to end a great day of exercise and clean eating.
