I popped up at 6:00 a.m. this morning. I love the autumn chill in the air. I made a mess of garlic hash browns ad coffee, threw on my gym clothes and ran off to catch early Mass. I made it half an hour early, so I was able to take part in the rosary.
I am so glad I woke up early! Look at the sunrise I would have missed otherwise!
Now I am having tea and oatmeal at Star bucks before I run to the gym!
I went to the gym yesterday.
I worked my chest and triceps. Did some crunches, a bit o'plank and some stretches. I feel good.
For lunch, I packed some leftover hashbrowns from breakfast, yogurt, gluten free cornbread, Orange slices and an oatmeal power bar that I made last night. Gluten free of course.
I was famished after my workout, so I stopped at the nearby Burger King and bought a whopper junior with cheese, no buns. I found a nice little spot on my teaching route and had a wonderful little personal picnic. I chopped up my bunless burger and mixed it with hashbrowns and a little hot sauce.
I am feeling good about my eating. I just repeat my mantra, "No gluten, no food after 7:00 p.m"., when I am feeling weak. I am feeling like I need more fresh fruits and veggies. Will be working on that.And I am focussing on getting more exercise. Always!
I am noticing that my day is more manageable when I make a trip to the gym first. Not only do I feel better emotionally, and physically, it breaks up my long commutes into smaller chunks.
Brilliant, I am!
Happy Tuesday! :)
