A Quick Hello

[PSA: "like" my blog's Facebook page to get tips and updates on my blog posts in your news feed.]

So much going on but tonight is not the night to be blogging about it, I have to get some sleep! Tonight will be just a quick recap of my fitness and food.

I was at an all-day training at work today. I packed healthy snacks and started out right eating them. But as the day progressed, my eating choices tanked. I had a yogurt parfait with granola and fruit after my snack of an apple and a cheese stick. Then I bought, and proceeded to eat throughout the day, a large bag of trail mix, the kind with candy mixed in. Lunch was one fried chicken thigh. After all that trail mix I wasn't that hungry.

After work I went to the gym. For the first time in a few days I had time to do my full workout. I ran on the treadmill for 3 miles, even upping it to 7.0mph for a few minutes. I'm working to get back to my previous pace. It's getting there. I had to push myself for that last mile. I've never claimed this was easy. Well, sometimes, but not today.

After the treadmill I did chest/triceps/core. I'm feeling really good about my core strength. It's also getting back to what it was. Not quite, but close. I wrapped up feeling strong, which is always good.

Dinner was a 6" subway sandwich - chicken breast, no cheese, veggies and vinegar and mustard. It was plenty after the almost-pound of trail mix was probably still in my stomach.

That's it. I've gotta hit the sack. Exciting stuff to come soon!


  1. Sounds like an ok eating day to me. Keep pushing forward. :)

  2. Yeah, in the end it wasn't so bad. But that was a REALLY big bag of trail mix :)

    I balanced it out with the fried chicken :o

  3. The sugar always triggered me to.... more sugar... tough cycle to break for me. Here's to another day....
