I totally felt like crap on Wednesday. I had no desire to even get out of bed and really wished I'd done that 4 mile run on Tuesday so I didn't have to run it that afternoon. It's probably bad that I was dreading running ever before I got out of bed. I was whining all morning about pretty much everything but knew I had to get moving. I decided comfort was paramount when choosing my OOTD. We've got a faux wrap sweater from Ann Taylor Loft with a light blue shelf cami from NY & Co, navy pants from The Limited and tan ballet flats from Naturalizer. Joe told me I looked nice :-)Joe also offered to make me breakfast but I wasn't really in the mood for anything we had. Plus I had to leave a little early to stop at CVS for some feminine products. As I left the store the Starbucks across the street caught my eye...I've heard great things about their oatmeal so I decided to treat myself. I had a grande skinny cinnamon dolce latte and a cup of their perfect oatmeal with brown sugar and dried fruit = 420 calories. That's a little high for my breakfast during the week but it was delicious and kept me full well into the afternoon.
I had a meeting that took up most of my morning but at least it kept me from whining too much. The oatmeal kept me full until almost 1:30pm! For lunch I ate everything in the picture except the apple, when I cut into it it wasn't all the way ripe or something. = 277 calories.After work I knew I had to make up my 4 mile run from the day before, no excuses. I was originally planning on going to a step class but for some reason every time I try to get there something comes up. I got myself a lemon lime flavored G2 as a treat for extra motivation (= 50 calories) and set the treadmill at a 5.5.
The run went really well, in fact I turned it up to a 5.7 towards the end because I was getting bored and wanted it over with sooner. These are my totals for my entire workout, I walked for 6 minutes after I was done just to use up my allotted time.
I stopped at Nicole's on my way home to chat about my birthday and some other projects we're working on together. They were ordering dinner and I knew if I hung out too long I'd end up not wanting to cook so I made a break for it after about a 1/2 hour. I baked some pork chops and steamed some broccoli = 473 calories. Not the most flavorful or elaborate of dinners but it did the job.
I started to get really hungry a little while later so I chose to eat a special treat Joe had picked up for me. Edy's makes these little single serving tubs of ice cream in fancy flavors. This Apple Pie flavor was really delicious but I could have had a lot more of another brand for the 190 calories. Also, I read this blog entry yesterday and now I'm dreaming about trying Ben & Jerry's new flavor. I'm thinking it would be the perfect treat for running 10 miles this weekend...
