Just eat repeat

hey hey! Today, was day 2 of the whole 30 challenge. It was a little bit tougher then day 1. I prepared a few staples on Sunday and I am SO glad I did. Its days like today, that are just GO, GO, GO.

I used most the staples in yesterdays meals and pretty much had the leftovers for today!

Breakfast- 1/2 frozen banana with AB (unpictured), 3 egg whites, asparagus, red pepper, purple onion with half of a sweet potato and half grapefruit.

After running errands all day, and completing this workout—I LOVE strength days!!  I came home quick and had a green smoothie for recovery.

Lunch was sometime between a visit to the park and 2 loads of laundry!

I came home hungry and ready for to eat a horse.. but chicken is easier to cook.

A sweet potato and spinach salad with cucumbers and tomatoes on the side. I had another apple with about a tbsp. of almond butter while it the chicken was baking.

I baked the chicken after sprinkling some Caribbean Mrs. Dash on top at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

I taught a fun kids class and went off to get a quick workout with my SIL again! Two days in a row! I love working out with her! She is one tough chick to! We worked out at her husbands gym. It was a good mish mash of some TRX, RIP and DB work. I haven’t ran at all since Saturday and missing it! It warmed up today and I was really craving a good run, but still taking it easy on my hip/foot.. all stemming from my sciatic nerve.. 800 mg of IBU should take care of it… right? oh, yes, and stretching, foam rolling and my least favorite.. REST.

Anyway.. When I got home I wanted to get some protein in my system asap. So, I warmed up some chicken, through together some salad from yesterdays lunch and munched on some blackberries.

It was definitely an eat right, by repeat kind of day.

Now, its time to go relax with the hubby and talk him into rubbing my hip/butt. TMI? I don’t care what you think.. its all about recovery.

Tomorrow is going to be a marathon day.. 3 classes, GPP and a run.. Rest? Thursday..

Q. Can you guess my staples in my fridge???

    I am so glad that you are allowing a protein suppliment as well! I think my protein powder was starting to feel neglected! I seriously already feel better and it is only day 3! I was originally only doing this for a week, but I think I can do the whole 30 days!

    Keep up the awesome posts!
