the past few days have been super busy for me so my mom gave me a couple of valentine's day presents on sunday instead of on the actual day.
she got me a few dark chocolate bars (my favorites!) and a few new protein/fiber bars to try
and she also got me some (unpictured) nail polish and this necklace! i love it - it has a cross, a heart, and an anchor all on the same chain.
anyways, onto the eats! [another thanks to jenn for hosting WIAW!]
I fueled up for my long day with two fried eggs with colby jack cheese on top of an english muffin
which of course needed to be topped with ketchup (because eggs need ketchup...)
|clearly i have a kindergartener's talent for art.|
i love this shirt - i spotted it at target a few days ago and bought it without even trying it on. definitely a lucky guess since it fits perfectly! it's super soft and flattering. only problem that is that it was a little colder than i expected and i was pretty cold during the day.
i also wore some heeled black booties that were super comfy. there's no freakin way i would be wearing heels to class if they weren't comfortable! ;)
lunch and my midmorning snack all packed up:
i had a apple cinnamon chobani, strawberries, carrots, and a pb and apple butter sammie. oh, and a dark chocolate hershey's kiss.
before track practice i had a mini Luna bar - working on my goal of eating my food more spread out throughout the day so that i don't come home from practice and raid the kitchen. i think this is definitely helping and my stomach isn't giving me any problems on my runs - yay!
both of these flavors are excellent! i can't decide which i like more.
- 2.5 run to the park where we were doing our workout
- 2 x 800 (I did mine at about 3:15 pace - we were supposed to do them at current 3200 pace so I think I was pretty close!)
- 2.5 mile run back to school
- core (2 x 30 crunches, 2 x 15 pushups) and stretching
I came home starving and immediately inhaled some fresh strawberries:
And then made a giant salad with romaine, carrots, onions, mushrooms, grilled chicken, shredded cheddar, and sesame ginger dressing.
I scarfed my salad down a little too fast because my tummy was a bit upset when I went to work :( Luckily by the time I got home it had calmed down again.
Nighttime snack: two chocolate marshmallow treats that my mom brought home from her work, and a mini tortilla with peanut butter.
Then, I faceplanted in bed.
what was the best part of your valentine's day?
favorite pre-workout snack?
