I greatly dislike the term “hump day” so I don’t use it.
HEEEY! How’s everyone?
Another completely on track day. How am I doing it? Magic? Luck? Common sense and motivation?
Breakfast was kind of lazy, this waking up at 4am business I still can’t seem to adjust to. Over 1 year of this and I’m still dead tired.
2 slices of sprouted grain bread and 2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter. Heftier in calories, but this bread I found has 6g of protein in each SLICE. My toast breakfast had 18 grams of protein. Ha! That’ll keep ya full.
This bread. This is the first actual loaf of sliced bread I’ve bought in a very very long time. It was on SALE!
Walked to the train as usual, worked a bit overtime today too.
Portuguese bun hollowed out, 2 tbsp red pepper hummus, grilled salmon, cucumber, sprouts, tomato.
I only ate about 3/4 of this, near the end I was getting full so I just plucked the remaining salmon and chucked the rest.
Went to the gym right after with my workout buddy!
20 mins on the elliptical
10 mins HIIT on treadmill
- tricep dips
- tricep swingbacks
- walking lunges
- bicycle crunches
- regular crunches
- situps while my buddy held my feets.
- More of those funny bosu planks I posted the other day
There’s this one part of the gym there that’s a ladies only stretching area that I was exercising in, and I dunno for some reason that gym always seems to have some rather…glare-y women in it.
There was this one woman who kept giving my workout buddy and I the super evil eye. I don’t know why some women do that? I try to not let it bother me but it cut my alternating planks short.
I wasn’t in the way or even saying anything, just working out peacefully on the other side. Bah!
After the gym I grabbed a muscle milk. FOR ALL MY MUSCLES! *flex*
I kinda hate these. Lol. Plus the ingredient list isn’t so… clean.
Walked home from the train again, did a bunch of laundry.
Then made some super simple chicken noodle soup.
I didn’t have much to work with, so.
I sauteed some white onion and carrot. Added my chicken stock (1 full carton), and a bay leaf. Let that simmer a bit until the veggies were cooked through. Added 1 heaping tbsp of itty bitty soup noodles. I had 1 lb of skinless chicken breast tenders, so I cubed them and pan seared them just until brown, and threw it into my stock. Brown = more flavour! Boil for a few minutes so chicken finishes cooking and you’re done! Add fresh parsley and green onion right before serving.
Et Voila! You don’t have to use noodles, and I usually put more veg in but this was what I had!
Simple and comforting.
Now, to fold all that laundry I did, and sleep. Tomorrow’s going to be another great day!!
