Hope you all had an awesome Tuesday! Work stress is still the same. But I've decided, with the help of my friends, that my conversations with Bachelor #1 did not warrant anymore stress!
I started the morning with my coffee, with 1/2 c. 1% milk and 1 t. sugar and two fig newtons.
I love fig newtons. I had these beauties before I hopped on the treadmill for a 7 mile speedwork session. I would have preferred to be outside, but it was on the cold side and could have been a little slippery with the snow we got yesterday. Plus, I think it is easier to do speedwork on the treadmill. Anyhow, I did three miles at easy pace, three miles at marathon goal pace and then 1 mile at recovery pace.
I then ate breakfast no. 2. Two frozen waffles, 1/2 c. blueberries and 1 T. of maple syrup.
I find that if I am using frozen blueberries, there is enough juice after warming them up that I don't need as much maple syrup. They were yummy!
My mid-morning snack was an Almond & Cashew KIND bar. Lunch was Lean Cuisine Mac & Cheese and two clementines. And my afternoon snack was a banana and a Clif Z bar. I know, same exact thing as yesterday.
Dinner was all about my love. The avocado. I mashed up 3.75 oz of avocado and added some onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper and sea salt. I served this with a few grape tomatoes and corn thins (skinny rice cakes made out of corn).
And then I had some MorningStar Farm's Chik'n Nuggets with 1 T. bbq sauce.
No Pirate's Booty binge this evening!
When I started my weight loss journey, I joined 24 hour fitness. I hired a personal trainer and he introduced me to the Body Bugg. You may have seen it on the Biggest Loser. Its something you where on your arm and it looks like this...
The body bugg showed me that weight loss really is about calories in and calories out. Yes, hormones, medication, salt intake and other things can impact your weight too, but at the end of the day, its really about calories in and calories out. So when I report my calorie burn, it is based on what my body bugg says.
Run: 7 miles speedwork, 3 miles at marathon goal pace
Eats: 1854 calories (11% protein, 62% carbs (299 g carbs), 27% fat)

Men: Sexy email exchange with Bachelor #2, he made me blush! Confirmed date with Bachelor #3 for Thursday.
