I was scrambling to get ready this morning, but still managed to find time to make a parfait!
My layered lunch consisted of brown rice, spinach, tomatoes and pico de gallo.
Mini banana for dessert :)
Apparently my lunch and dessert were sufficient enough so I had to layer another snack in to my day. Rold Gold Tiny Twists are a favorite snack food of mine. Chips and salsa are my number one, but Tiny Twists are a close second!
Carrots, cucumbers and hummus at 5:15. I actually ended up leaving work at 6, which isn’t as late as I thought, but the snack was still tasty :)
I got home,
ate 2 cookies put on my gym clothes, filled up my water bottle and headed to the gym for Bootcamp. I figured my late snack and sugar/carbs would give me plenty of strength and energy for class. Apparently I was wrong…
It was a tough class, but let’s be serious…they’re all tough! I was able to do all the exercises, but I was so frustrated by my lack of energy. The instructor could see my frustration and said “Are you mad today?” Yes, yes I was. We did tons of pushups and squats. My arms felt like JELLO. All of a sudden my whole body started shaking and I was feeling like I couldn’t recover, so I stepped by from the exercise and took a breath. That’s when trouble started. I started feeling as though I may pass out (scary feeling) and my body wouldn’t stop shaking. I stepped outside and sat down on the ground, still shaking like crazy…then the tears came. I have no idea what was wrong with me. The instructor asked me if I ate and I said that I did…because I did. I was so mad that I left class 10 minutes early but I knew it wasn’t worth it… What an odd thing. I slowly walked back home after sitting/crying in the locker room for a while. I didn’t feel one bit of hunger on my walk, but I was thankful that I had an appetite shortly after I got home. Maybe my sugar levels or protein levels were down? Who knows…
I had seaweed salad and a layered sandwich (1 slice of Health Nut, hummus, veggie burger, Stubbs bbq, and jalapenos)!
I took two swigs of CF DC and put it back in the fridge.
Dessert/Sugar – Vanilla Almond Shredded Wheat with Unsw. Almond Breeze
I feel a lot better after dinner and after talking to z about some exciting stuff. You’ll be happy to know that he is in fact feeling better ;)
much better in an apartment near Chinatown.
