I thought I was all better. I was wrong. I have not done a good full on weight session all week. I feel like crap. I went on a run this morning with one of my gym friends. I thought I was all good to go. When I woke up my tummy was feeling a little off. I figured I just needed to a'hem....use the bathroom and clear things out. I did have success in the ladies room and felt like a new woman. The run started out OK but by about mile uh, 1.2 I was in pain. My tummy was clenching and I wanted to vomit on the side of the road. I don't think I'm all the way recovered from last weekend. As today wore on I had a raging headache and now a sore throat. Fabulous. Soooooo, I have decided to take tomorrow off. I honestly don't know if I can do it but I am going to try. All the way off. No cardio. No weights. Just rest. I know I need to but it is so hard for me.
Breakfast today was oats with plain yogurt, cinnamon, and bananas. I gobbled it all up sick tummy and all.
For a snack I had some plain yogurt and I whipped up some chocolate protein granola for the top. I don't have exact measurements because I kinda just threw it together. But I will make it again and get the recipe. But here is what I did anyway:
Wet ingredients: unsweetened applesauce (1/3 cup), peanut butter (1/4 cup), vanilla (1 tsp), agave (1 Tbs). Mix together.
Dry ingredients: Oats (1 1/2 cups) coconut (1/4 cup), flax seeds (2 Tbs), cocoa (1/4 cup), protein powder (one and a half scoops). **Remember these are not exact measurements!
I forgot to add my protein powder so I had to sprinkle it on after I had spread it all out in the pan. Then I re-mixed it all up.
Spread on cookie sheet and bake at 300 for 20-25 minutes or so. Stir once or twice during the baking process. This was delicious. I loved it.
Lunch was a green salad topped with green chile chicken and a little homemade poppyseed dressing. Yum!
After lunch I had the awesome experience of taking myself, the hubs, and the little ones to the dentist for three hours. We all did great during our appointments, it was waiting for the others to all get done so we could get our starving butts outta there that was hard. We finally finished up and hit Kneaders on the way home. Dinner for me was a turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread, no mayo, no cheese. I also stole some bites of the grilled cheese my kids got that I paid extra to have ham put on and discovering when we got home that ham wasn't on it. Sweet sauce. I had a handful of my chocolate granola for a treat after.
Wish me luck on the resting tomorrow. I think I can handle it. :)
