It is chilly in Philadelphia today! Sometimes on these cold, winter days I just want to cuddle up under a blanket… and that is exactly what I did this morning. My original plan was to go for a run before work, but I couldn’t bring myself to tackle the 7 degree weather! I decided to head to the gym after work for a quick 3 mile run.
Here is what my meals and moves looked like today…
- Breakfast: banana oat bars*
- Lunch: buffalo chicken chili, tortilla chips, and baby carrots
- Afternoon snack: small apple and mini Clif Builder Bar
- Dinner: baked eggplant rollatini
*I made these 4-ingredient banana oat bars last night and I love them! Oats, diced dates, walnuts, and bananas. I also added vanilla extract and sprinkled them with cinnamon, so I suppose they aren’t really 4-ingredient bars! They make a delicious grab-n-go breakfast or snack and they are good for you too!
I made baked eggplant rollatini for dinner… YUM! I love healthier versions of delicious favorites. The best part? I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
Since it was so cold this morning, I took my workout to the gym after work. This was my first post-marathon run and it felt great!
I’m glad that I ran inside with the chilly weather, but unfortunately I think everyone else had the same idea – the gym was packed!
I started out slowly and did rolling intervals between 5.0 and 6.8, with most of the run happening between 5.5 and 6.5. I ran 3 miles in just under 31 minutes (30:50).
Now it’s time to catch up on Biggest Loser – one of my favorites!
