My Monday was a blur! I had a busy day at work and have very little to report. I can say that I had some tasty meals yesterday, which is always a plus!
I went out for lunch with a couple co-workers to a sandwich place called Taste Unlimited. I got their roast beef, havarti and house dressing on French bread. Roast beef is my favorite sandwich meat and I’ll get it almost every time I go out for sandwiches or make one at home.
I’ve been craving vegetables ever since I got home from my trip last week so Riley made a huge salad last night. We have enough for lunch today so I’m pumped. It had a ton of veggies, grilled chicken, some homemade croutons, and a little bacon on top.
It was exactly what I needed for dinner! After some relaxing, I read my book in bed for about an hour before going to sleep super early. Like I said, not a lot to report!
Workout & Breakfast
This morning, I got up at 4:30 when my alarm went off and got dressed for the gym. My plan was to run for 30 minutes on the treadmill, but after 15 minutes my ankle started to throb. Not anything painful, but uncomfortable enough to make me stop. Not really sure what’s going on there, but I think it’s time for new shoes. I’ve had my Brooks Ghost running shoes since last January and I’m pretty sure they’ve hit their expiration date!
Since I didn’t feel like struggling through an uncomfortable run, I switched over to an elliptical cross trainer for another 10 minutes. After my cardio was over I grabbed a medicine ball and did a few rounds of the following (15 reps each):
- Suitcase crunches
- Kick Downs
- Crunches with legs up (holding medicine ball)
- Side Plank Dips (each side)
- Russian Twists
- Full Sit Ups with medicine ball
I finished out my workout with some stretching and I was good to go!
Breakfast today was a Greek yogurt bowl, so nothing new there.
I used honey-flavored Greek yogurt, pumpkin pie granola (found at a farmer’s market), banana slices and chia seeds. Can’t go wrong with that!
Now I’m off to swing by Starbucks for a latte before heading in to work. Hope you all have a great day!
What are your favorite running shoes? I really like my Brooks Ghosts, but I’m open to trying something new. I’ve heard really good things about the Mizuno Wave Sayonara. Let me know what you like!
What’s your favorite sandwich?
How often do you replace your running shoes?
