Posting food pictures has been long over due but here I am.
But first a lovely pic of Brett from the Jets game I was at this weekend!
This morning I woke up and ran 3 miles on the treadmill, busted out 30 minutes on the elliptical, lifted abs for 15 minutes and arms for 15 minutes.
I refueled at work with coffee, oatmeal and a banana.
I still need some oatmeal to go ideas. This is so simple and tasty to heat up at work, but I know that making my own would be much easier. I definitely want to stick with oatmeal though- my office has no insulation so I really need the warm oats to heat me up! I wear a coat almost all day at work- how ridiculous is that?!
Lunch was leftover chicken (just sauteed in some white wine) with a Steamer bag of carrots and broc.
I reallllly liked these vegetables. They are seasoned, but since they are one of the steamer bags they don’t have any gross and unhealthy butter sauce on them. They were quite tasty- and you can’t beat a 4 minute microwave heat up. I will definitely be taking these to work some more.
Mid afternoon I needed my snack of a golden delicious apple and a fruit salad with pineapple, and red & green grapes. I’m planning on having the other half of the fruit salad with some yogurt for dessert ; )
About an hour later I decided I was going to go to the gym straight from work to try out the Bosu Bootcamp class. I used to take a Bosu class at Rowan University and I absolutely loved it! I wasn’t sure how much fuel I would need for the 45 minute class so I decided to play it safe and eat a Clif Z bar to hold me over.
The class ended up lasting an hour (thank goodness I ate the Clif bar) and it was really enjoyable. I joined this gym for a trial month just to see if I like it (and because the month was free). I like exercising on my own but I have really missed the fun that comes from group exercise classes. I hope to take full advantage of my membership the next month. But anyway, the class involved differents steps, squats and jumps on the bosu ball. It also incorporated abs, pushups, jump roping, jumping jacks, and a body bar. I think it was great overall but I have to admit I felt like it was not challenging enough for me. The only time I really felt tired was when we used the jump rope for extended periods of time. But I have to wait for an honest opinion when I wake up and see how sore my legs are tomorrow!!
I was ravenous when I came home and enjoyed a turkey taco and a big turkey taco salad with taco meat, salsa, ranch dressing and some cheddar cheese. I definitely went back for another salad after this big one!
