I had to rush out the door this morning, so my breakfast was super fast.
I topped a bowl of Greek yogurt with vanilla almond granola. I also ate a very ripe banana as I walked out the door and drove to work.
My time at the gym today began with a sweaty run. I took the beginner’s running group at our gym out for a 5K run at 9 a.m. Luckily there was a nice breeze that kept us slightly cooler than last week when half the group had to stop to walk more than couple of times.
We followed the standard Turkey Trot route that leaves just down the street from the gym. The route is fairly shaded which makes it a good one to take when the sun is blazing.
After our run (which doubled as my workout for the day), I had just enough time to towel off and drink some water before I had to meet with a client. I then spent some time working on a project my boss assigned to me before it was time to teach water fitness.
I ate a chia bar that I packed before class and it did a great job of giving me a quick burst of energy without ruining my appetite for lunch after class. We had a packed class today and I omitted water weights so the class was focused entirely on cardio. The class went well and I had a lot of fun teaching. I like my afternoon crew!
Once I made it home, I assembled a super fresh salad with tons of vegetables.
- Black beans
- Lime juice
The avocado added a creaminess to the dish and the salty black beans paired with the sweet, juicy nectarines made me love every bite.
Now it’s time to start brainstorming dinner ideas!
