Jen’s WIAW theme for this week is “Summer Staples” My fitness Monday was a quick run, and my fitness yesterday was swimming laps. Yes, the Olympics totally had something to do with that. I guess pool time is kind of a summer staple, eh?
Don’t judge a girl at 5 a.m…
The food involves summer staples too (blackberries, kale, etc.), so let’s move onto the food.
Pre-swim: Wasa Rye Light cracker
Breakfast: sandwich thin with natural pb and blackberries
Snack: MRM natural vanilla protein in water and McCafe black coffee (best drip coffee!)
Lunch: sweet potato & broccoli topped with nutritional yeast (tater n’ broc cooked in microwave at work)
Snack: first snack came too early… stress is bad, but trail mix is gooooooood
Snack: since first snack came too early, I had one of these babies too before leaving work
Dinner: rice, kale, ginger, soy sauce, and shrimp
First one to finish your veggies wins!
Dessert: totally unnecessary, but super tasty
Despite a stressful day at work, I managed to maintain high energy levels all day. I think the morning protein shake (ahem… and coffee), healthy fat from the trail mix, and the slow-burn carbs of the sweet potato all contributed to this. The beer? Maybe not.
