wellll yet again things didn’t go as planned. I planned on doing my 25 minute treadmill run today during lunch but about 5 minutes into my run my hamstring was really pulling tight. My legs are incredibly sore from the 2 games on Sunday. I was going to keep going but then I remember reading Angelas blog at Ohsheglows and she had just gotten an injury because she tried to push through her pain. I decided it wasn’t worth the risk of injury this early in my training so i hopped on the eliptical instead for some easy leg action. I did 20 minutes on the eliptical. i have GOT to stretch out my legs after hockey so much better. I have a tournament this Sunday which is 6 games long give or take a few depending on how well we do. If I don’t stretch right i’m probably going to have to be dragged out of my bed the next day, because these legs won’t be wanting to move.
Lunch today was an amys cheddar cheese burrito with rice and beans. my girl amy. she sure does know how to make some mexican food! i love it! i rounded out lunch with a crisp ripe apple. I was getting hungry for my afternoon snack so i munched on a chocolate brownie zbar. It was officially the end of my bar stash… soooo I went and restocked after work! AH so many good ones and some new ones too! I got some cliff bars (oatmeal raisin walnut, blueberry crisp, WHITE CHOCOLATE MACADAMIA NUT, and banana nut bread) , 2 almond and apricot and 3 almond and coconut Kind bars, and an optimum blueberry flax and soy nature’s path bar. I haven’t tried the white chocolate macadamia nut which i’ve been looking everywhere for, and so happy i found, the banana nut bread (is this new? i’ve never seen it anywhere before) and the blueberry flax bar. the Kind bars are so ridiculously good though, I really recommend you try these flavors out. You’ll drool just thinking about them 🙂 I also snatched up some chobani’s that were on sale for a dollar a piece! not too shabby. 2 blueberry, and 2 peach!
I came home after my little food spree to some chinese noodles. It is noodles with beef and broth and lettuce. Ah, I love my mom’s cooking. I am going to be shell shocked when I move out. I planned on moving to New York after graduation, but it was so hard finding a job in my field there so I took a really good opportunity in Baltimore. I moved back home, and have been saving up money and hopefully will be moving to NY in the summer sometime. It’s going to be a sad day when I don’t have all this amazing food, but will be a really good time for me to whip out my cooking skills and try out some awesome recipes. A few weeks ago I bought some Pudge Free brownie mix… i hadn’t busted it open yet, so i figured tonight was the night. To make a single serving brownie you put 2 tbsp of the mix, and 1 tbsp of ff yogurt mix it up, and stick it in the microwave for a minute. The mix is all natural and fat free. I was a little hesitant at first, because it just didn’t seem like a fat free brownie could in any way taste good… but I WAS WRONG! it was awesome, it was the perfect little personal brownie. I put a tsp of mighty maple on it… and it was heaven. It warm and started to melt the pb. ahhhhhh. This could be dangerous, bc I can see it in my future many many nights! PLUS its only 110 cals (without the yummy pb). it’s ridiculous how good it tasted, really. I think it tastes a lot more moist than a vitamuffin. I took a pic of it after i snagged a bite so you could see how cakey the brownie was 🙂
I am in neeeeeed of a good stretch tonight, so i’m going to download one of the gentle hatha yoga sessions from yogadownload. I have been talking to Polly a lot recently from YogaisYummy and she has really inspired me so much to further my yoga practice. I am going to be adding it into my routine more frequently now. She is such an amazing person, you all should read her blog, it will make your day a little more bright 🙂
Have a great night, ill be watching the biggest loser! And then only a half day at work tomorrow 🙂 🙂 🙂
