It’s been a pretty nice day. Not as awesome as I’m anticipating tomorrow to be, but I’ll get to that later.
This morning I woke up without an alarm around 8:30 and headed downstairs. I took my time doing morning things before finally putting together a really delicious breakfast.
Two egg white and one whole egg omelet with orange and yellow peppers, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes with half a sliced avocado, three slices of turkey bacon, and strawberries. One of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a while!
I proceeded to just relax around the house for a little bit longer before popping in the P90x Yoga DVD. Today is a rest day on my schedule but I thought I’d do some yoga for my muscles. Well, I did about 10 minutes before deciding that I wasn’t feeling it and just wanted to go to the pool. But it had been a couple of hours since breakfast, and I was hungry again. Shocker.
So lunch was a blueberry protein pancake made with Vega vanilla protein powder.
Then it was pool time! As most everyone already knows, today was a scorcher. My car said the temperature was 98. Yikes.
I stayed out there for two hours, reading my book and getting in the pool just about every 20 minutes or so because I was dripping in sweat just laying there! When I left I was seriously craving something super cold and refreshing, so obviously I knew what I wanted.
An ice-cold fruity smoothie.
The smoothie recipe:
- 1 banana
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- handful frozen mangoes
- handful frozen strawberries
- handful frozen peaches
It was exactly what I needed to cool off!
Eventually it was necessary for me to go to the grocery store, so I did that and came back to brave a walk in the heat with Mav. He had been inside all day (minus just going out to pee) and despite the heat, I wanted him to walk around a bit. So we took a 30 minute walk and we were both relieved when we arrived back in the air conditioning.
After a shower, it was time for dinner.
I have an 11 mile run on the schedule for tomorrow…so what better to fuel for the run than with pizza?!
Amy’s Organic Pesto Pizza.
Tomorrow I plan to be up pretty early to get in my 11 miles before it gets unbearably hot again. And then…I have an appointment to finally get another DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE!!! I can’t wait. My body has reached that point where nothing makes it feel relaxed and the aches are pretty constant, especially in my calves and hips. So…it’s time. And that is why I am so excited for tomorrow. I know that deep tissue massages can be uncomfortable and even painful at times, but I so need it. My muscles are begging me. So I oblige.
Hoping to get to bed kinda early tonight so I am able to wake up early for my run.
See ya tomorrow!
