Warming Up the Winter

Right now, I’m gearing up to go out for a run because I can’t get over how mild it is. It’s not by any means warm, but for this time of year, wowsa! Anything that can take me off the treadmill and into the real world works for me.

I started my morning with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich before heading off to work for some training sessions. I still get nervous in my preparation mode, but so far, I’ve been having a blast!

By the time I got home, I was starving, but in the mood for a weird combination of foods. I was craving an egg sandwich, so I popped in an english muffin and topped it with a slice of provolone, a chicken sausage, and an egg. While everything was cooking, I enjoyed a few carrots to munch on to curb my hunger. To go with my sandwich, I sautéed spinach and had a handful of tortilla chips. Weird assortment, but fulfilling.

I’ll take us back to last night’s dinner, which was blackened salmon, sweet potato fries, and a mixture of cauliflower, peppers, and brussels sprouts.

Going back even further, we can sneak a peek at yesterday’s lunch. It was a huge salad with a leftover piece of pizza topped with artichokes, mushrooms, and spinach.

My workout included circuits working the biceps, shoulders, and back. Along with the strength training, I did some core work as well as sprints on the elliptical. It’s strange because the body parts that are hurting today are the ones I worked out on Monday, legs, triceps, and chest. Although, no matter what I do, I never seem to have sore biceps. It’s weird.

Now I’m off to bundle up and enjoy a bit of sunshine!
