Monday Eats

Monday was a good day. Good food, good workout, good art class.

In the morning, I went to the gym for a treadmill workout. I did a 4-3-2-1 workout that went like this:

4-3-2-1 Treadmill Workout
time (mins)…speed
0-4…………….6.6
4-8…………….6.8
8-11…………..7.0
11-13…………7.2
13-14…………7.4
14-15…………6.6
repeat minutes 4-15 two more times
37-38……….6.6
38-39……….6.5
39-40……….6.4

This totaled 4.6 miles. It was definitely a challenging run, and could be made more difficult by increasing the speed or increasing the incline (I set it at 1%). Unfortunately, my leg was bothering me a little bit afterwards, so I will try to take it easy the next couple days.

Breakfast is unpictured, but it was exactly the same as the cottage cheese/trail mix/apple combo I had a few days ago. For lunch, I had the last of the yellow split pea and sweet potato soup with some salad on top (all you can see is the salad).

In the afternoon I snacked on some banana mixed with cashew butter and cinnamon:

After work, I went to half of a yoga class at my gym for some stretching, and then enjoyed a dinner of a cottage cheese biscuit, brussel sprouts, and lentil cakes. I smeared some raspberry jam on the biscuit and added a few almonds to the mix.

This was the first meal I had with the biscuits and lentil cakes, and I would say everything came out really well! The biscuits were especially good – I could see having them for breakfast!
