I've got to run to work in a few minutes, so I'm going to make this quick! I didn't think I was going to be able to stop at home, but my bags were so heavy that I thought I'd take the extra subway trips to lighten my load.
I can't stop making breakfast cookie faces! I didn't want someone to open the fridge and think it was just mush and throw it out, and who would throw this baby out? I didn't have any banana or yogurt so this cookie was a little different today:
1/2 cup oats
1/2 scoop of my new Kashi protein powder (good!)
1 tbsp peanut butter
craisin eyes, prune nose, current smile
I went back to sleep after breakfast until ONE. My sleeping schedule is pretty whacked-out. I had a small coffee with skim milk on the subway on the way to the gym:
I had a great workout today. I decided to just use the stair mill, so I stayed on longer than usual. I left my ipod at school by mistake, so I was very happy to see the new issue of SELF in the magazine rack!
169 floors climbed
447 calories burned
ab series (the planks are getting MUCH easier for me to do!)
I was pretty hungry so I had a clemmie while I dried my hair in the locker room:
I read in SELF that post-exercise, you shouldn't eat much more than 18% of carbs in your meal. That translates into no energy bars for at least 3 hours after your workout. Interesting!
I re-feuled at Whole Foods. I missed this salad bar! Roughly what I had:
falafel ball (NOT good, very dry... but I kept "tasting" it to see until I liked it more until it was all gone)
vegan "chicken" salad
3 types of tofu: fried sweet & spicy, baked plain, BBQ with edamame
pad thai (we serve this at my restaurant, and rather than order it for dinner I thought I'd get a little taste to satisfy my craving)
2 dumplings (again, thought I'd satisfy that craving and maybe I won't order the shrimp dumplings for dinner tonight!)
With coconut water (LOVE this... I rarely treat myself to it, though):
And I grabbed a chocolate hazelnut biscotti on the way out. I think I've been having biscotti-envy from K's ABC breakfasts... this was so good! I forgot how much I love biscotti :-)
Time for work, catch ya later!
