Wow…I am officially the WORST blogger ever! It has been such a long time since my last post. Since I was home for a week over Thanksgiving, I literally spent all of my time hanging out with my mom. It was such an amazing week filled with relaxation, family, and of course amazing food.
So here’s a little recap from my Thanksgiving week!
The Thanksgiving meal was absolutely DELICIOUS, complete with sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, wheat rolls, cranberry sauce, and of course turkey. Dessert consisted of my mom’s wonderful pumpkin pie and cherry cranberry pie. I had a piece of both
So here I am, back in the windy city, missing my family and the beautiful Colorado more than anything! I ate pretty much anything and everything I wanted while I was home, and my mom and I worked out together everyday. It was such a great week. I feel really recharged and ready to finish out the semester!
Here’s a bit of info about today:
I planned on going to spin class at 7:10am, but upon arrival at the gym this morning, I discovered the instructor didn’t show up! I was really bummed, but I ended up just doing an interval run that felt pretty great. I did 5 minutes at 6 mph, 1 min at 4mph, 5 min at 7mph, 1 min at 4mph, 5 min at 8mph, 1 min at 4mph, 5 min at 8mph, 1 min at 4mph, 5 min at 7mph, 1 min at 4mph, 5 min at 6mph and 4 min at 6.5 mph. It was about 4 miles and was a great start to my day!
Breakfast consisted of a big bowl of Kashi Go Lean topped with frozen blueberries and a green tea. After my 9:00 class, I made some delicious low fat bran muffins with blueberries and ate one of those as a midmorning snack.
For lunch, I ate a yummy turkey sandwhich that my mom had made me for the plane ride back last night, but I was upgraded to first class so they fed me! So I saved it. It made a great lunch. I also enjoyed an apple and a vanilla Chobani.
Dinner was simple but great. 2 egg whites scrambled on a small wheat tortilla with ham and hot sauce. 1 Kashi peanut butter TLC bar. 1 Archer Farms eggnog yogurt for dessert
I’m off to Yoga-lates soon! So I will chat with you tomorrow Have a great Monday night!
