Runny Egg Sandwich

I’m such a blonde. What happens when rain hits snow? It melts! I might have made the mistake of calling it slush earlier, oppstini. Instead of hopping over slush puddles on my walk to the gym, I hopped over rain puddles. Everywhere. The rain was even worse and more harsh on my walk back to work, but the workout was so good and left my muscles feeling sore.

I was craving cardio today, so I split it up between 3 cardio exercises:

  • 1.5 mile run
  • 10 minutes Elliptical
  • 10 minutes Vertical Elliptical with intervals

The vertical elliptical is easily my favorite piece of equipment at the gym. I had never seen or used one of these before joining Gold’s Gym this past summer, but it has became a staple in my workouts. When you switch the incline, you bring your legs up higher to your chest, and each incline works different areas.

There’s even a display of your legs that will light up depending on what area you’re working.

It’s awesome!

With 5 minutes left in my workout, my stomach started to growl, and I was tempted to ditch early because my lunch was the highlight meal of my day. I soldiered through the last 5 minutes while dreaming about this:

An egg and cheese sandwich. To. Die. For.

I haven’t had one of these sweet babies in what feels like a solid month, so it received a warm welcome in my tummy.

I made this last night before bed and reheated it in the microwave today. Of course it’s better eaten fresh, but it’s still just as good reheated.

For the base of the sandwich I used Flat Out Hungry Girl Whole Wheat with Flax Foldit.

I cooked two eggs and left them partially “easy” and loaded one egg with shredded cheese before sandwiching the two eggs together. This baby hit the spot!

After work I broke a monster sweat while I completed the Core Synergistic P90X workout. This is the 2nd time I’ve done it, and while I didn’t enjoy it the 1st time, I found that I really got into it tonight. My abs were burning and cursing through the core exercises.

My abs will be looking fierce on tomorrow night’s date. Errr, well, I mean my stomach will be flat? 😉

Look at how patient the little boy is while he waits to lick the Chobani yogurt container.

This is our nightly tradition. After I make my overnight oats he gets the container to lick and chew.

Time to go relax for this little lady!

Xanthan Gum Mystery

This morning I woke up with the same leg pain I had yesterday, but still battled through a 4.1 mile run. It’s amazing how many more miles I can cover by simply setting my alarm 5 minutes earlier.

The weather was my “perfect running weather.” It was a cross between a late summer/early fall morning. Not humid, not chilly, and not hot. Just perfect.

6 am Neighborhood Run

Last night I made a Steak & Mango Scramble for today, but wasn’t quite feeling it for breakfast, so I made my Green Smoothie to bring to work instead. In went my favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter protein, a few slices of frozen banana, a dash of cinnamon, a splash of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, water, ice and a dash of Xanthan Gum. It wasn’t bad, but I definitely couldn’t stomach finishing it. I’ll have to work on the perfect combo. I’ve only recently started using Xanthan Gum, so trying to make the perfect shake has been tricky. I’ve found it makes my shakes warm. Ick!

When lunch time came around, I was more than ready to tackle my Steak and Mango Scramble, and it HIT the spot!

Steak and Mango Scramble

  • 6-7 pieces of Steak
  • 1 egg and 2 egg whites
  • Handful of Spinach
  • Several mushrooms
  • Mango Salsa

Yum in my tum.

Clean Eating After a Fun Weekend

After going to bed early last night and NOT being able to fall asleep, I woke up exhausted, but miraculously had an amazing 3.5 mile run. I definitely didn’t feel light thanks to yesterdays chocolate fondue attack, but I felt invincible.

After my run, I did a few core exercises before getting ready for work.

Morning Workout

  • 3.5 mile run, post-run stretching
  • 2 sets of 50 crunches & side-to-side crunches
  • 25 reverse crunches
  • 2 sets of 20 mountain climbers
  • 2 sets of 13 squats with overhead press, 8 lb. dumbbells
  • 15 push-ups

This morning I was excited to be back to my clean eating routine. Monday’s breakfast was my Veggie Scramble. So delicious and filling!

Around noon I snacked on a Chobani plain yogurt with delicious mix-ins including, blueberries, blackberries and a nut mix.

Nutty & Fruity Chobani

A sweet and salty combo!

Scramble Yo Eggs

This morning I was more than exhausted. I think my legs are asking for a day off from running, but I just don’t like the idea of that. I’m thinking maybe today I won’t go for a run after work and give the legs a break. Since all fitness classes were cancelled tonight because of the Cigna 5K Race, I decided to sign up for the lunch time spin class. Boot camp was a no-go on Tuesday so I’ve been wanting to take a class before  next week.

Morning Workout

  • 3.1 mile run, post- run stretching
  • 50 crunches and 50 side-to-side crunches
  • 25 reverse crunches
  • 2 sets of 13 standing side crunches with 8 lb. dumbbells
  • 15 stair push-ups

I was absolutely famished by the time 8:50 rolled around and didn’t want to wait an hour until my normal breakfast time, so I dug into this amazing concoction I put together last night.

I revamped yesterday’s breakfast by adding in grilled chicken, and boy was it better! It tasted so similar to Lo-Mein, I think it’s because instead of whisking the eggs together before putting the egg mixture in the pan, I cracked the eggs into it and then scrambled it all with the other ingredients. So amazing!

Chicken Veggie Scramble

  • Cut up grilled chicken
  • 1 egg and 2 egg whites
  • Handful of spinach
  • Spaghetti squash
  • ¼ cup diced sweet potatoes from yesterday

Healthy Breakfast

See you after spin class!
