So proud of myself today… I haven’t actually gone for a run in about three months. I’ve exercised (weight lifting, yoga, elliptical, etc) but not actually gone running. Well, I ran three miles today! I feel so good. I forgot how much I love running, even if I’m not very good at it. This semester has been so hectic and busy, so I cannot wait until it ends. I just want to get back into a regular workout routine.
Today I’ve eaten:
B- peach pistachio chobani greek yogurt
L- wheat wrap with turkey, raw spinach, cheddar cheese & a little bbq sauce on the side
S- honeycrisp apple with 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1 babybel light cheese
S- (after workout) small plate of chicken, broccoli, and peanuts
D- not yet!
My dash is so dead right now, come on people start posting!! So BORED
My intake today…
B- 1 egg + 2 egg whites, 1 slice whole grain toast with butter
L- Wheat pasta with chicken, eggplant, capers, tomatoes in pomodoro sauce
S- 1 slice whole grain toast with 1 tbsp peanut butter & cinnamon
D- Chicken, corn, unsweetened applesauce
Just killed it at a spin class… 18.8 miles! Feels good to get back into a routine. I’ve been so thrown off by my trip to Vegas. My body is finally starting to adjust to being home.
My intake today:
Breakfast - (out of eggs, wah) 3 turkey sausage links, 1 slice wheat toast + 1 tbsp PB and cinnamon
Snack - TONS of cherries
Lunch - Whole grain pasta in spicy tomato sauce with hot peppers, pan-seared chicken + side salad with oranges and strawberries in a lemon vinaigrette

Annnd I’m finally back from my trip to Vegas! I am still so exhausted and thrown off by the time difference and traveling. I had such a great time with my boyfriend and all of his friends! Did a little bit of gambling, laying out by the pool, drinking, partying and lots and lots of eating!!! On our last day we went to a $75 per person buffet…it was insane. Never seen a buffet that big. The dessert alone was worth the price. Plus all the girls got free champagne on the house since it was Mother’s day :)
But now it’s back to reality. I am officially going back to the gym tomorrow (had finals at school and heading to work soon, so couldn’t go today). My intake so far today…
Breakfast - Chobani greek yogurt
Lunch - Summer corn chowder soup + whole grain baguette, strawberry and poppyseed salad with blueberries, oranges, strawberries, pineapples, pecans, and chicken
So far have had a productive day… Went to class at 9:30 this morning, then came home. Just ran two miles and then biked around the park for 20 minutes! Now I have to go get ready for work, which is sad because it’s absolutely gorgeous outside today!
My intake so far…
Breakfast - Chobani greek yogurt (dark chocolate and raspberry one)
Snack - Half of a whole grain roll with turkey, avocado, swiss cheese, sweet peppers, spinach and onions + an apple on the side
Post-workout - The other half of the sandwich ^ plus 8 oz. of Green Machine Naked juice
Dinner - We will see :) but probably either a big salad with chicken or just a chicken breast with veggies on the side!
Hope you all are having a fantastic day!!

Dinner - Grilled chicken with a tomato & eggplant glaze. I had a sweet potato on the side to go with it but honestly I’m so full from lunch, not gonna force it down and make myself feel sick.
Today in class we warmed up with a good 15 minutes of stretching, then ran 5 laps, and did three sets of circuit training (squat jumps, pushups, and planks). I have a really horrible cold and sore throat, so this really took a LOT out of me.
