Happy Humpy day!
Tuesday started with two pieces of Aunt Millies bread. No spread, just plain wheat bread. I really need to start brining some type of low cal spread in to add to this bread. It’s getting old real fast. The bread is very low cal but has lots of fiber in it and holds me until lunch. That’s why I eat it.
Lunch I decided I’d go to Subway to try out a salad there. I went online and did my nutrition research on their website before going. I found that the Grilled Chicken Salad would be my best bet. Then I looked at the low fat dressing that they offer there and found that the sodium level in the dressing alone was over double of the whole salad. I decided to play it safe and run to the Meijer grocery store before Subway to pick up a salad spritzer. They only had 2 left in the whole store. A lot of people must be dieting or something! I had to go with the Rasberry Walnut Vinaigrette Spray that I ended up really disliking. I couldn’t figure out what it tasted like but it was something that I didn’t like.
Not to be a downer at all, but I also really didn’t enjoy my Subway Salad either. I didn’t like many of the topping choices they have for salads there, so it was pretty much me eating a chicken breast and some shredded lettuce. The Baked Lays were hands down the highlight of my meal.
I don’t think I’ll be getting another salad there. That’s a bummer. I’ll stick with When Eddie Met Salad because they have a bazillion toppings to choose from there.
Because lunch barely held me over until I got home from work, I was starving when I got home. I cooked up some Bullseyes! These were my favorite food my dad cooked for us growing up. These things are great. If you don’t want to cook eggs AND toast, why not cook eggs IN toast 🙂
I like to make them so when you split them open the yolk comes out and is perfect for dipping. If you don’t like the yolk runny then you can just cook it for a little longer or pop the egg yolk when cooking to make it harder.
After bullseyes I went for a run outside. I wanted to try to do intervals (HIIT training) outside, which I’d never tried before ( I always do them on the treadmill). Let me tell you…IT WAS SO MUCH HARDER OUTSIDE! I don’t know if it was the wind or hills or both but I was dying! I walked for 4 minutes then did 1:1 sprint/walk intervals for 18 minutes.
I was once again hungry later at night so I made a little banana split with a half a frozen banana and sugar free Hersheys chocolate syrup.
Even later I finished off my box of Cheez-its and decided to call it a night.
Even though my run just about killed me, I felt like a I had a successful day in the workout/diet part of my life.
On a not so foody note, I got my Race For the Cure T-Shirt and number in the mail yesterday! This is my first race ever so I was really excited about it! It’s pretty cute. We’re making our own shirts though, in honor of my friends mom who passed from breast cancer. I feel like a real runner now, with my number bib and all!
Now as long as I can pull off a better run that I had yesterday, I think I’m all set! I’m really hoping I like doing the race because I WANT to like running, and I still would rather play a sport then just run.
