It’s sad but true. Last night I made the valiant effort of trying to squeeze a cardio and strength workout in after work before showering, getting ready, and meeting friends at 8. But I’ll get to that in a minute.
Oh and before I forget can I just say how excited (and relieved) I was to find out I’m not the only one who does the weird egg carton balancing act? I seriously love you guys.
Ok let’s jump into the usual What I Ate Wednesday, courtesy of Jenn!
Are you bored yet? I’m sorry. (new readers: I eat an egg sandwich every freaking day haha).
This is the one appearance veggies made in my day. I had some green onions mixed in with my sandwich. I used them in a recipe last week and am trying not to waste the rest!
Lunch was pretty simple, some grapes, string cheese, and shredded barbecue chicken.
Snacks, 2:30pm and 4:30pm
My usual Chobani + granola combo, and later an apple.
I also usually have a cup of tea or two throughout the afternoon, which I normally forget to include.
Work it Out
Ok so here’s where things get interesting. Play by play of my day once I left the office:
5:00 – Shutdown my computer, pack up my things, and change into my gym clothes.
5:10 – Drive to the gym.
5:25 – Arrive at the gym (no traffic, this was miraculous), drop things off in the locker room, head up to the cardio room.
5:30 – Do the following treadmill workout:
(Which kicked my butt! I ran at a 7:30 pace for almost 10 minutes total (with breaks) which was pretty tough for me. Also at about minute 20, a man who must have bathed in cologne hopped on the treadmill next to me. I could barely breathe. Gotta love Providence.)
6:05 – Stretch for a few minutes, head back to the locker room, grab my things, walk to the car.
6:10 – Drive home.
6:25 – Arrive home and immediately throw in a Jillian Michaels DVD (Body Revolution Strength 9). Proceed to get my butt whooped.
7:00 – Finish Jillian workout, quickly unpack my things from the day and get ready to jump in the shower.
7:05 – Shower.
7:20 – Make and eat dinner.
7:30 – Dry and straighten my hair, put on makeup, get dressed, grab my stuff and head out the door.
7:50 – Drive to meet friends.
8:07 – Make a U-turn because I suck.
8:09 – Arrive, less than 10 minutes late. Truthfully, not bad for me.
And that’s why I’m always in a hurry and always late. Fitting in workouts with a social life can be really challenging!
So here’s the “dinner” I prepared and ate in less than 10 minutes. A couple handfuls of the best dried fruit ever (seriously buy it) while waiting for my toast.
PB and banana on toast. The fastest thing possible.
There’s always time for dessert. I had a piece of the gingerbread cake I made awhile back. It freezes really well!
So where was I off to in such a hurry?
Trivia night!! We came in third and had a blast
::unpictured popcorn and two captain and diet cokes::
And there you have it! Not a completely typical Tuesday, but with the warmer months approaching it probably will be. I definitely tend to go out more during the week when it’s nice out.
Questions: What do you eat when you truly have no time (like 10 min or less)? Favorite lunch food? I’m getting bored with my lunches and need ideas!
