I love working out in the morning! It's so much easier now that the days are getting longer and warmer.
Breakfast was the usual:
2% greek yogurt with raspberries and walnuts:
+ unpictured egg puff
My snacks for the day were a grapefruit and half a cup of almonds:
Plus this new protein bar:
Check out the nutritional stats:
It's less protein than I normally go for in a bar (I shoot for 1g per 10 calories) but I like that it's relatively very low-carb and low-sugar. And it tastes just like a vanilla wafer!
My last class was cancelled which was awesome because I was SO tired. I came home and slept for 4 hours. When I woke up around 8:30 it was time for dinner: spinach, salmon patty, and mango.
I mixed up half of bag of Trader Joe's frozen chopped spinach with 2 egg whites and feta cheese and baked it at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes. I saw the recipe somewhere in the blog world but can't remember where--I'll link to it later if I do!
Plus a bowl of strawberries while the spinach was baking.
And half a square of dark chocolate after (unpictured). I watched The Biggest Loser on my laptop while I was eating, then went to bed around 10:30--super early for me!
Oh and my booty is coming back!
It goes into hibernation during the winter when I stop running, then comes back for the spring. Meaning that I go up/down a pants size from summer to winter, but I think its worth it! :)
