I have been finding it a lot harder and harder to run in the morning. When I go to swim practice in the morning-I feel much more motivated to go (and my coach will have my bottom if I don’t). Running, however, is different because I’m running by myself. There is no one to call me if I’m not there…or they don’t see me. Today began with a 1 hour run through the town. I felt decent running today, which I was actually surprised.
8:30am-Sweet Potato Pancakes. Remember these guys? I haven’t had you in a while and that is basically all I thought about during my run ha. I had a side of vanilla Chobani yogurt. I love yogurt with my pancakes. I will never get enough of either. I like how sweet potato pancakes and pumpkin pancakes are not always in a perfect circle and look like a giant blob. If that makes sense.
Then I had a math class-we had a pop quiz boo! I think I did pretty well-we have a test on Tuesday though. I guess she wanted to give us a check to make sure we knew what we needed to study. After that I got some much needed laundry done. It amazes me how gross running clothes can smell ah.
12:00pm-Strawberry pancakes. Okay yes, this is very embarrassing that I was having pancakes for two meals today. They are, however, made entirely different. The first ones were made without any pancake mix and these use fiber one pancake mix. I also made lots of baby pancakes versus one big pancake. I’m trying to go a more meatless route when I have 2:00 swim practice because I can feel it sitting in my stomach sometimes.
My boyfriend wanted to take my picture today because I didn’t look like a bum. I said I would only take a photo with my favorite stuffed animal Bloomie. I have had him since I was one!
Insert another awful IM practice here.
Total: 5300 yards
10X50 butterfly drill
1000 freestyle (1:20 base…on 12:40)
It was the practice that never ends.
4:30pm-Greek god yogurt with hot cocoa mix. A friend of mine told me about mixing hot cocoa with yogurt and it tastes exactly like mousse. I added swiss miss diet and 1 serving of Greek god plain. Yummy! (not pictured booo)
5:30-Dinner date to the dining hall. Thursday is steak night at Lehman. The flank steak was actually delicious and I had a lot. Nothing too excessive but I got my fair share of protein tonight. I also had mixed veggies, a baked potato and fruit salad. I found some banana peppers on the salad bar that I was craving as well.
I have to teach swimming lessons tonight and I’m rather cold. We will see how this goes. I suppose I’ll make myself some hot cocoa, and use more and more of my hot cocoa mix. I’m starting to run low eek.
After my run, I noticed the veins in my feet were popping out. I’m going to do more research on this, it has happened during swimming with my shoulders but never when running. I hope this doesn’t gross anyone out hehe. I made it smaller just incase.
Question for you-What are some of your favorite high protein meatless meals?
