Even though I got home after 4 AM from my sister’s New Years Eve party, I set my alarm to wake me up at 10 AM. Yesterday was 60°, but today it was cold again so I decided to go to the gym. They were only open from 10 to 2 and I knew there will be tons of new people starting their New Year’s resolutions. They gave away hotdogs potato chips and soda. I was so disappointed that they didn’t give away things like fresh veggies and fruit to help people get started with their New Year’s diets. I skipped the free food, got my free T-shirt and went upstairs to the indoor track. The schedule called for 2 miles but I wanted to walk faster than usual. I put on my Week 4 podcast and got moving. I completed the 5 min. jog and the three-minute jog. I finished the 2 miles in 32 minutes and my average pace was 16.1, right on track with where I need to be for my half marathon training. After the gym, my best friend invited me to Cracker Barrel restaurant. I made up my mind before I even left the house that I would have grilled chicken. I wanted vegetables for sides but everything there has pork in it. However, I still feel satisfied that I made the best choices I could with the choices that were available.
What Did Carli Eat Today? – just realized not a veggie all day 🙁
B – Raisin Bran Crunch
L– Cracker Barrel restaurant, grilled chicken strips, hash brown casserole, macaroni and cheese, corn bread muffin And water.
