My eats today were a bit unusual... like the rest of my day.
I started with yoga and making up the incline bench press from yesterday. I didn't quite have enough time to workout and shower so yoga was a good option since I didn't need to shower.
I should have though. I was a bit sweaty.
I had a turkey wrap for lunch then picked up a slice of whole wheat pizza (with pineapple and jalapenos) for my afternoon meal.
Walking around at work helped me digest the food so I could head to the gym for legs afterwards. Otherwise, if I eat a meal at 5:30 or 6, my stomach doesn't recover.
I did have a little soy chicken though. That was okay.
Though I almost didn't go. Except I ate frozen yogurt, sugar-free low-carb chocolate mint and some peanut butter. Icicles Frozen Yogurt has the best peanut butter and the most amazing low-cal chocolate mint.
I've followed the LiveFit plan for 37 days and was okay with missing one measly day, especially since I would just make today my "rest day." But that frozen yogurt got me going and since I had to return a movie nearby, I just stopped in.
I did 5 minutes of cardio before and after the workout.
I haven't worked out at night in forever. Lots of guys. I wore my brand new Under Armor "I *heart* Two A Days" shirt I picked up this morning from TJ Maxx for $9.99.

2 instances: Do I look so strong?
As I was setting up for my walking lunges and had successfully cleaned-and-pressed 55 pounds, a guy asked me to spot him on the bench press. He was stuck. Uh, sure. Thanks for thinking I was able. Actually, another guy saw my confusion and came over to help. Hah, oh well. :)
Then I saw one of my former high school classmates. I saw him there one morning so now he thinks I really do two a days. I guess so since today included some A.M. yoga.
But in all honesty, I was a two a day girl. I was obsessed with the gym. I wouldn't even call what I did two a days - more like 5-6 hours a day split into 2 sessions. I was just bored that summer and it became a habit, but it's clear now that I had exercise bulimia.
My post-workout eat was the last of my Fage 0% yogurt with Love Crunch carrot cake granola mixed in.
Then I had some pretzel sticks with a bit of peanut butter as well. That's what happens when I don't eat quite enough during the day. :(
