This is from Last Wednesday so I guess it qualifies. And FYI props to you foodies that do this everyday. It was painfully difficult for me for one day.
I don’t know all the tricks of the trade of the WIAW posts. I like to read them but I don’t participate that often. Mainly because my food intake is super boring right now. I eat pancakes. I eat a sandwich. I eat whatever is going on at my house. I am not a good foodie and I’m okay with that. I’m hoping to find a man that will understand that I am not chef Hollie. If you don’t want pancakes or something cooked in the microwave-I can’t help you. I also hate getting into that comparing who eats what and how much they burn and food advice from your great aunt twice removed because she is an expert.
But I also get the question of what do I eat-all the time. How many calories I have…ect ect…I thought I would do this once and show you a day in the life of me. When I’m being lazy at home. So maybe I’ll do day in life part two in school.
Without further ado-let’s go time travel back to Wednesday.
I woke up at 7:25am. I don’t know why but that is when my alarm was set from school and I just kept it that way coming home. I like that time and it works for me and I wake up that early every morning of my break.
At home I tend to eat waffles because we don’t have a griddle. Well we did and I brought it to school and I don’t enjoy making stovetop pancakes. Pancake snob maybe.
Waffle of the day goes to Chocolate Peanut Flour. For your enjoyment this meal is about 500 calories.
I normally eat and then read blogs and pux around the internet until 9:30, Wednesday was no different. It gives my food about an hour and a half to digest before my run. That is plenty of time for me and besides I’m not going hard so if anything if cockblocks speed even more. 8 miles untimed was my morning jive. Easy. Nothing too exciting and that’s all I have to say about that. I would love to be more informational about my running but most of my runs are easy and quite boring. I didn’’t go to track but 2 times in 2011. Yep I said it.
I will talk more about my training when I go into phase 2 in a couple weeks. To simplify, 85% of my runs are easy and untimed. My goal is just easy milage for 85%. I have already become so strong. I can feel it.
Moving on to lunch. I time my run so I can eat lunch right when I get home (as in within 2 seconds of walking in the door).
Then I did absolutely nothing for my life for another 3 hours. Isn’t break lovely that way? Actually-I went to the mall and got some new makeup from MAC but I didn’t do much else besides that.
But I did get some coffee. I get gas station coffee everyday. Everyday I put at least 150 calories of grimey cream and whatever else is body. I don’t care.
I got home around three and went for my tempo run (that day happened to be part of that 15% timed fast runs I do). It was good. I felt so good. I cannot even explain to you how good that run went. In fact, I will tell you. I ran 5.5 miles in 38:08 which equates to a 6:34 overall pace. I didn’t feel like I was dying or going to have a heart attack or go into cardiac arrest. Thus it was overall perfect.
After getting home, I had one of these lovely creations. In order to become more tan I will eat more pumpkin (and turn orange from beta-carotene). Just kidding but add some pumpkin to yours oats and it’s so good. (This was around 4:30-5).
For dinner we had chili, broccoli and left over turkey. That is parmasean cheese on top because it makes everything better.
Later that night I wanted ice-cream. So I went and got some cake batter ice cream because it’s my favorite. It is way to cold in Northern New York to be thinking of ice cream but down here 50 degrees is optimal ice cream weather.
And that was my day of joyous eats. It came out to be roughly 2500 calories incase you were wondering. So please call your great aunt twice removed expert in dietetics to get at me. As 99.9% of the time-I do answer your formspring questions via blog or there so ask away. :)
Question for you: What have you been eating lately?
