Ahhhh....today was so much better than yesterday.
To change things up let's start with the exercise. I did day 2 of week 1 in the Couch to 5K program. I was so embarrassed by my first day walking/jogging, so today I kicked it up a little. I walked a little faster then I jogged a little faster and I went a little farther. Not a lot farther, but a little. Instead of the 1.72 miles in 30 minutes I did 1.83. Like I said not a lot further, but a little and I'm happy with any progress. I also did my strength training exercises on the machines at the gym and because I didn't get to workout yesterday I got on the elliptical for a little while too. I was worn out when I was done, but it felt so good. I'm going to do my Candlelight Yoga program when I get done blogging.
Now on to the food!
I started the morning with my regular coffee, organic unsweetened vanilla almond milk and sugar free vanilla creamer. I also had oatmeal with ground flax seed, chia seed, maca powder and fresh blueberries. I forgot to take a picture of it, but it looks just like the one I ate the other day : ) 363 calories
For lunch I had a regular Boca patty on fresh spinach with a side of strawberries and blue berries. I had some plum oolong tea to drink as well. So yummy! 210 calories
On to dinner! I had a homemade salmon salad on fresh spinach. I got the idea for the salmon salad from this post on Jen's blog. Mine was a little different from her's though. I used canned salmon, a couple of tablespoons of fat free greek yogurt, a little salt and pepper, cherry tomatoes, orange bell pepper, celery and cilantro. I love cilantro. I mean seriously love it. I would put it on everything I make. I know some people hate it, but I just can't wrap my head around that. How can you hate something that is soooo soooo good? 313 Calories
Looking forward to another great day tomorrow!
