I went to the gym this morning for my 3mile run. I actually hate running on a treadmill, however, unless you get up at 5am in Florida (which I AM NOT willing to do..) it is wayy too hott out there to run. So, the gym it is. I wanted to work a bit on speed and endurance all in one so I did this little workout:
2 min walking
1/2 mile 5.7 speed incline .5
1/2 mile 6.0 speed incline .5
1/2 mile 6.3 speed incline 1.0
1/4 mile 6.5 speed incline 1.0
1/1o mile 7.0 speed incline 1.0
.15 miles 6.5 speed incline 1.0
1/2 mile 6.0 speed incline 1.0
1/4mile 6.0 speed incline .5
1/4 mile 5.7 speed incline 0
Then I walked another .2 miles after just to cool down. It was pretty good, with the walking and everything I did 3.25 miles in 34:00 min so not too shabby.
Lunch was -ok- but the highlight was my Back to Nature Chocolate Delight Granola. Granted, I only put 2 tablespoons on the yogurt..but it was SO worth it. It is all natural and delicious..crunchy and chocolaty.
I love sandwiches. Any of my friends will tell you about my obsession with sandwiches- I love wraps, subs, paninis, ect. So tonight, I made my own gourmet sandwich for a fraction of the cals.
- Arnold Sand Thins (all I had I know it's not the best choice but whatever)
- homemade pesto
- roasted red pepper
- chicken breast
- 1/2 slice all natural gouda
- press together on the forman.
- 1/2c basil packed firmly
- 2 tbsp chicken broth
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp fresh parm
So creamy with a strong basil flavor. I actually got this pesto sandwich idea from my mom, who saw it in Cooking Light magazine. I didn't look at the actual recipe in the magazine, but this was the general idea. On the side I had zucchini fries :)
And for dessert...Soy Delicious Coconut Ice Cream Sandwiches. If you like coconut, get these. They had a great coconut flavor and were extra creamy. I love me some dessert :)
Now off to watch the obnoxious brats of NYC Prep...
