Case of the Mondays


I went to bed around 10 on Sunday and woke up bright and early. But I must have been dreaming when my alarm went off, because it took me a few seconds to recognize what the noise was. I hate when that happens!

I had my usual protein shake and went to the gym…I decided to do lower body today.

5 min warm-up on bike
Hamstring Curls
Seated Quads
Seated Leg Press
Wide Leg Deadlift (see pic below)
5 min stretching

My lunch time cardio was 25 minutes on the treadmill. I started at 3.5 at 6 incline, and ended at 3.7 at 10 incline.


Sorry…I was extremely bad at taking pictures of my food today during work.

The morning snack was a Chobani Strawberry (man I’m getting hooked!) and half a Kashi Roasted Almond Bar crumbled in. Lunch was a couple pieces of my leftover “Pig on a Pie” from Smith & Jones. My afternoon snack was a Kellogg’s FiberPlus Bar & low fat string cheese. The bar was good! It was very similar to the Fiber One bars and had a good amount of chocolate.

Dinner time (then time for Heroes!)…I had some chicken breast I baked yesterday and some Eggplant Tomato Bake, which I adapted from Cooking Light. I’ll post the recipe tomorrow. I’m really trying hard to eat more veggies, so I thought this would be a great way to cook them up. I’ve been really craving dessert lately, so I bought some Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares. I ate 1, which is just 50 calories, and it settles down my sweet tooth.
