The travel is always an issue and I am determined to avoid pitfalls and do a better job than I did on my longer vacation earlier in August. Of course it's only a few days so that makes it easier. I plan to exercise on Sunday morning as I am due to start week 2 of C25K. Should be no problem for me to get out and run that morning. Food wise there is always a big question mark as we never know exactly where we will be eating. I have planned to take a few healthy snacks such as jerky and almonds and even a protein bar for emergency purposes.
This morning I went to the gym before work. It's so much more crowded in the morning and there is a totally different crowd. There are a lot of people that clearly don't have anywhere to be because there is a lot more chatting and laughing and slower pace vs the lunch crowd which is usually people alone, getting their workouts done and getting out. I prefer that crowd myself. Today there was a group of ladies on the treadmill just laughing and talking so loudly I could hear them over the gym buzz AND my headphones. Kind of annoying really. But, I got my C25K done and that means week1 is officially done. Again. I sis some great stretching afterward because I am sore from the weights I did yesterday.
Food yesterday was good and my calories were 1199. Guess I could have had a celery stick to make it an even 1200. Last night, we had a zucchini stuffed chicken breast which was fabulous. Not too many calories. I had it with asparagus and salad. It was very satisfying. You can find the recipe here. I just love this blog! Some really great easy recipes there.
Work today has been busy, not too bad considering it's a Friday before the long holiday weekend. On the way to our satellite office I was behind a huge truck hauling hay. I promptly began sneezing my head off, and quickly put the air on re-circulate. The stuff was flying EVERYWHERE. Welcome to Texas.
|I don't think you can see, but hay was flying EVERYWHERE!|
And look at my car after. Looks like it's chewing hay......
|Just cracked me up...|
I'm wearing my new breast cancer shirt. I think it is awesome. I got one for my godmother and mailed it to her before her surgery.
|I took this and then realized you can't read it in the mirror. Duh.|
I hope all of you have a great holiday weekend. I'm off to pack and get ready for our trip in the morning. I'll see you all Monday or Tuesday depending on when I get time to post next.
