August 19th, 2009: Get get get moving

Hi guys!  I did indeed have chocolate last night!  But no picture though, it was a maltball that I just popped into my mouth and ate as I was walking upstairs.  I laid in bed and read for about an hour or so.  At 10pm it was lights out and going to bed that early was wonderful!

I woke up this morning at 6am.  Umph!  It was way too dark for me to head out for a run, so I took care of Rocks and then worked till 7ish.  It was light by that point, so I headed out for my short 2.5 miles.  It was insanely humid this morning and I was glad that I only had to do a short run!  I was sweating buckets the entire time.  It was thundering just a tad while I was out.  By the time I got back home, I just walked in the kitchen for some CS when it started pouring down rain.

Chocolate soymilk

And it was coming down hard.  I didn’t delay, I busted upstairs for a shower because I felt so gooby.  Then I made breakfast because I was starving.

Coffee and oatbran

Blueberry oatbran with chocolate whey protein powder this morning instead of vanilla.  A sprinkle of coconut on top made it complete!  With some coffee on the side that was really weak (sorry babies!).  I ate my glorious breakfast and then it was back to the grind working and working it some more.

Which I completed!  Wheee! By this point, I had to bust out some lunch because I was about to gnaw my arm off.

Salad

Salad inspired by Kath’s taco salad she had the other night.

  • Mixed greens
  • Shredded carrot and parsnip
  • Cucumber
  • Leftover salsa beans
  • Chopped red onion
  • Heavy dollop of salsa on top
  • Crushed flax tortilla chips

OH so good!

Smoothie

Smoothie of a much more reasonable color:

  • 1C pineapple juice
  • 1C OJ
  • 1C US cranberry juice
  • Kale
  • Shredded carrot and parsnip
  • 2 fresh figs
  • Frozen mango
  • Frozen blueberries

Mmmmm and it was creamy, not gritty.

Watermelon and cantaloupe

Mels of course.

Smoothie, salad, and fruit

Lunch was fabbo!  And I’m slowly learning that I don’t have to cram everything under the sun into my smoothies.  This helps make them creamier as well.  Before I would just try to get so much stuff in and now I’m realizing that a few things are okay.  It doesn’t mean I’m lacking on fruits and veg which was my previous notion.

Thanks all for your kind words about my nose! :D  It’s just a little sore today but nothing overly painful.  It only hurts if I tap it or scrunching my nose and that “hurt” is an ache, not a sharp pain or anything like that.  Martial arts training comes with bumps and bruises, it happens. Next time I’ll block better! ;)
