Daily Food Log: Monday No Funday

Ugh...up a few pounds since March is no fun. Nipping it in the bud is even LESS fun. So, starting today, back to a stricter, leaner, more protein/whole grain diet ( a la five factor). The important thing this time is making sure I don't limit carbs too much, I need energy to run, running is my top priority this summer.

This morning I started with what is going to sound disgusting, but to be honest, it is the best start to the day when I am doing a strict phase: the good ole plain grilled chicken breast. After eating that in the AM, you don't feel hungry or crave anything because it isn't too salty or too sweet...its just...chicken...plain old boring...chicken.

By lunchtime I was getting hungry, so I went to Whole Foods. I made a salad with chick peas, real peas, cucumbers, detox vegan oil-free salad (a mixture of different veggies with sea salt and lime juice, it is a premade offering at their salad bars), detox oil-free sunrise blend quinoa and Green Goddess dip (20 calories/1 g fat/1 carb per 2tbsp.). I was also craving some fruit, so I had a banana and the blueberry/black/raspberry pre -washed/cut mixture.

About an hour later I had a Kashi Chocolate Covered Coconut bar and a venti iced coffee from Starbucks with skim milk...nom nom nom.

Sitting down for 8 hours a day tends to cause me to become snackier than normal, so in between I sip on bottles of the Electrolyte Enhanced Water from Whole Foods (365 brand) and Vitamin Water Zeros...LOVE THOSE THINGS.

After work, I am going to Yoga Sculpt at CorePower Yoga. I absolutely LOVE this place and that class really kicks ass. Today is supposed to be a rest day, and as run distances increase, I will honor that. However, I feel confident that this week's performance will not be derailed by not resting since it only calls for 3-3 mil runs.
