Friday Workout

Due to plans I had later today, I needed to get my workout done early today.  I woke up at 5 am to go running…until I saw that sunrise wasn’t for another 2 hours and it was literally freezing outside.  My workplace has a gym, but last time I went there regularly they did not open until 8am and that would have not been enough time for me to do my full workout and get into the office on time.  Lo and behold, I checked again and they had extended their hours and open at 7am now!

I was really happy and despite some annoying setbacks I got my workout in.

I ran on the treadmill for an hour.  I ran 7.45 miles at a pace of 8:06 per mile.

Afterward, I got on a bike machine and did that for 15 minutes as a cool down.  Then I showered and went into work.

Friday Breakfast

I ate a banana, a piece of bread, had 2 glasses of green tea, and 2 glasses of soymilk with cacao.  I also had a few pieces of dark chocolate.

After my workout, I ate maybe 2-3 cups of cantaloupe and an apple.  I’m staving off my hunger until 11 to heat up my lunch and then I will probably be good for the rest of the day.

I’m also drinking a detox drink that consists of cinnamon, cayenne powder, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, Stevia, and water.

Thursday Dinner

I decided to have spaghetti again and cheese bread again.

Instead of carbs I made noodles from squash and zucchini (so I could get veggies in without the calories).

The marinara I made randomly is more orange than actual red so it looks almost the same as the ground turkey I used.

Excuse the dirty stove. See it looks like I am just eating meat and zucchini but I promise the sauce is just really chunky and is actually vegan!

I added Mozz Diaya shreds, olive oil, and oregano to the bread.

After draining the crap out of my pasta I had a delicious meal.

 

Later on, I was preparing food for the next day and I snacked on a little bit of turkey and cantaloupe.  I also had 4 glasses of green tea and 2 glasses of wine before I went to bed finally.

Thursday Breakfast and Lunch

I had a couple pieces of bread (once again but making your own bread is so much better), juiced 3 grape fruits, and had soy milk with cacao powder.  I also had a few pieces of dark chocolate

I had my regular salad with chia and sesame seeds.  I was out of nuts so I just snacked on 2 pieces of dark chocolate, and one milk chocolate with peanut butter bar (they were like bite sized).

Once again, once I was done with my water (2 quarts) I ate half a lemon and half a cucumber with hummus.
