Pretty average Thursday, aside from the (relatively mild) migraine I’m battling. I’d love to just lay down in a dark room – but I’ve been dreaming about that since 7am! Isn’t meant to be, today!
Citrucel on the way to work – 7:45 a.m.
Breakfast – 8:15 a.m.
Early brekkie today because I was go-go-go to meetings all morning.
Bowl of red berry, ½ banana, milk
Snack – 10:45 a.m.
Kashi Dark Chocolate Cherry
Lunch – 12:30 p.m.
My co-workers were kind enough to pick me up my scrumptious taco salad at the farmer’s market today….while I was on a conference call. LOVE the co-workers! :)
Snack – 3:45 p.m.
½ a peanut butter clif bar (found in the depths of my purse. Is that gross? Oh well.)
Exercise – 4:45 p.m.
My head was rockin’ but sometimes exercise helps so I thought I’d give it a go.
I warmed up on the stationary bike for 5 minutes, then dove into my strength routine for today, per the SSU 2010:
3 sets x 12 reps
Lunge & Lift
Side Leg Lift (with 10 front circles and 10 back circles each)
Stability ball hamstring curl (2 sets with both legs on the ball, one set with 1 leg)
Bosu Calf Raise
Prone Glute Lift
Made it through my strength work out with my migraine, but I definitely increased my rest time to prevent the head pounding.
For my cardio I kept it simple and did hills on the treadmill at a brisk walking pace. 20 minutes
1h20m @ the gym = 492 calories burned
Hubs walked the pup for me, and it rained today so I headed home to prep dinner, and pack my grub for tomorrow. Oh, and cut up an incredibly ripe cantaloupe. Mmmm…
Dinner – 8:00 p.m.
Late again because Hubs had an evening meeting. We had leftover spiced roasted chicken thighs, roasted potatoes, and salad. I combined all of the above into a monster salad– hubs ate it like a normal meal :)
I’m off to rest…here’s hoping my migraine is gone tomorrow! My poor co-workers worked in the dark today so I wouldn’t have to deal with the fluorescent lights!
