Sunday Night Workout, Dinner, and First Week of Blogging

Hi Kids!

I just got back from my workout and it was a great one! I have only been back at the gym for one month from a hiatus due to work stress and school. I had previously had knee injuries and wanted to start slow so I was ecstatic after hitting a personal record tonight! I am not a runner and I often take walking breaks but tonight I was able to run all 40 minutes of my treadmill time!

Workout stats:
Cals Burned: 340
Distance: 3.52 miles

I also finished off by lifting tris and doing some pushups with the boy. I felt great!

Dinner/Post Workout Snack
I knew that I wanted breakfast for dinner since that is usually a lighter and easier to digest. First I had 1 cup of cheerios with a vanilla Lite and Fit yogurt. Next was my main course!

This is a Lite Flat Out Wrap, 1 tbsp Better n' Peanut Butter, 1 mini Reese's, and 1/2 of a banana. I microwaved this for 1 minute and it was AMAZING- especially after I smushed the banana.

Now I'm off to order my books for school, take a shower, and get ready for bed.

Reflection on Week 1 of Blogging
So it's been one week. I learned that this takes a lot of work and I am amazed at you girls for keeping it up! I am also aware of what I eat and how boring some of my meals are! I know different things work for different people, so I will try to stay true to me and do this my way. I look forward to setting a better blogging schedule, remembering my camera, and using this as a tool for a better life balance!

That wrap looks amazing. Perfect combo! :)
Lastly, blogging is definitely a commitment. I struggle with it sometimes but I think it's fun at the end so it's worth it to me. Keep it up! :D
