I had to spend some quality relaxing time with my husband when I got home but then it was down to business. Including a trip to the gym (with husband in tow, thanks baby!). On the way there I snacked on part of a Kashi Roll bar to give me energy.
I ate another one of the Kashi “candies” recently and love, love, loved it, but this was just ok. The flavor was nice but it was too sticky. It was a little large too; I only ate about half of it and had to toss the rest into the bushes to biodegrade.
At the gym I did 30minutes of intervals on the treadmill (2minute run followed by 1minute walking) which said I ran 2.8miles total. I think I’m getting shin splints, but my ankles and knees felt great – I LOVE my new running shoes! I also did a quick abs and stretch session. My goal right now is 3 runs a week, no more than 30minutes, not back to back. I will ease my way in and up my times/frequencies as the weeks go on.
After a shower, lunch packing, etc I made a quick dinner. About half a packet of vanilla Carnation instant breakfast with skim milk (with two Flinstones gummy vitamins).
And leftover Thai fried rice with a yam with a little Promise Activ.
Seriously, yams are amazing. With a microwave they can be ready to eat in five minutes, start to finish. And this one smelled strongly of burnt marshmallows when I cut it open, which is always nice.
I have a bit more work to do, but I’m hoping to drift off soon. Sweet dreams all!
