Happy Thursday! Today is one of my day’s off from running so I started my day with a nice lil walk. I usually run a max of 5 days a week for rest and injury prevention.
Since I’m not talking running let’s talk eating! There are a ton of “what should I eat when training for a half marathon” kinda searches and since I have a half marathon this weekend I thought I’d share a full day of eats from yesterday:
Before I went for a run I had half of this green smoothie. It had ice, almond milk, TJ’s green super powder and frozen mango
Breakfast – eggs and toast with Laughing Cow and jam.
Then, I had some clementines and my Peanut Protein Cookies with iced coffee with Silk almond milk and stevia.
I made this batch of cookies with cranberries. Delicious!
Note: I use vanilla whey protein powder for this recipe and it’s a good, sweet powder. If you use a so-so powder they don’t come out as well as the powder is a sub for sugar. It has to be sweet.
Lunch! I had my usual massive mixing bowl salad. No picture, but I did happen to weigh my chicken yesterday. This was 5.2 oz. I baked a bunch of chicken breasts at the beginning of the week and was curious how big they were.
Afternoon snack – Greek yogurt with frozen mango and granola and nuts. I am obsessed with frozen mango right now.
At some point I snacked on Sabra and carrots. This is practically a daily occurrence that I always forget to note.
Dinner was the Chile Relleno Casserole and a salad.
See ya later!
Question: When are your rest days?
