Quick check in - pretty great day today <3
My eating today was great! I factored in 300 calories of "extra" cals just in case I didn't count every single calorie, but without those 300 I finished at about 1250! :) And I feel full and great. I re-made those "perfect protein pancakes," doubled the recipe so I could warm some up for breakfast in the morning and subbed 1 full scoop of protein powder for 4 TBSP of cottage cheese. They were MUCH better! A lot less dry and SO yummy! :) I put a little peanut butter on them and had such a yummy supper! :) Can't wait until breakfast in the morning!
I also grilled up some organic chicken breast and put together a huge salad for lunch tomorrow. Snacks will be carrots and hummus and almonds. :)
I also worked out today. I took yesterday off (Mondays and Fridays are my new rest days) I ran 1.4 miles to the gym and then did a men's health workout JT showed me a couple of weeks ago (that he plans to do himself). It was a bit too hard for me as is, so I improvised and feel like I got a great workout in. :) my run went great too - ran 1.4 miles in 13.50. However, I had to "calibrate" the run because my Nike program said it was 1.34 miles, but according to mapmyrun.com and google maps it is a 1.4 mile run... so who knows - either way I am happy with that time. :) I am speeding up a little bit. I am running a 5K Saturday, so we'll see how I am REALLY doing! lol.
