Today was my dad’s birthday :-) Originally I had planned on leaving the night before with all four of us, but since Ben and Seppe were sick, it was just going to be Gio and me. I decided that we would just leave after lunch today. That way I could get in my workouts for the day.
Boys had the day off from school and it was Ben’s day off too. This meant I could go for a run. Started with a 2 min plank then went on a 3 mile run. Another really good run without knee pain :-)
—————————- Turbo Fire Day 12 ——————————–
Got back and did Fire 55 EZ. I did better this time around. This is a long workout but it doesn’t feel that way because it is so much fun. The music is great and there is just so much energy oozing from the TV. I was pretty worn out after I was done though.
After that, it was time to shower and get going. I knew I wouldn’t be getting any other workouts in because I would spending 5 hours driving with a few hours at my dad’s visiting my family. It was worth it. I don’t see my family much these days and it was my dad’s birthday so he deserved special treatment. I had a great time with my dad, grandparents, brother and sister. Gio even behaved very well.
M1 – Chobani Strawberry with raw almond butter and granola (same portion as yesterday)
M2 – Mini Luna bar
M3- I was on the road driving. I always pack fruit and some snack for me to munch on while I drive to help keep me awake. I have no idea why, but it really helps me. My lunch was a big batch of grapes and a bag of Snapea Crisps.
M4 – I was still on the road but getting close to my dad’s. I wanted to make sure I was full before I got there because I had no idea what we were having for dinner. I had an Almond Coconut Kind Bar.
M5 – My grandpa made a German dish – I can’t even begin to attempt to spell it. lol. But it was beer marinated beef with currants and pasta. It was really good and I haven’t had in years. I enjoyed every last bite and even had a small second serving.
My sister made Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for dessert and I took 2 :-) My family is pretty good at cooking. My baby brother told me about putting fresh rosemary inside my olive oil to add some flavor. I can’t wait to try it.
Not the most super Lean and Green days, but I don’t feel guilty at all. It’s ok to enjoy all the yummy goodies of Life once in a while ;-) Everything in moderation. I think that if I never allowed myself to eat foods I liked, I’d go crazy. lol.
