Active rest day today so will hit up some step mill after work and maybe help my buddy out on his workout lol. Think on rest days I will drop some extra calories and protein since I won't be as active as normal days. So instead of 2 double protein shakes I will have 1 and instead of pb sammy, apple and soy milk I will opted for pumpkin seeds, orange and soy milk saving me 129 calories not to mention cutting back on the carbs but adding healthier fats and same amount of protein.

Breakfast
1/2c dry oats
1c soy milk
1 tsp cacao powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp whole flaxseed
1 banana
2 tsp agave
Soaked in fridge overnight

Morning snack
1/4c raw pumpkin seeds
1 naval orange
1c soy milk

So yesterday we got to train at the trainer's new studio!!! It is so nice not being watched and we can joke around and have fun! The old studio was shared with sports conditioning guys and the looks we got weren't always the greatest. My sister feels much more comfortable now and I bet she will start doing better :). Woke up completely famished this morning. Have been up for about an hour and finally eating breakfast. Wish the gym was open so I could do some running training for my 5k runs. It is to dark and I live in the 16th most dangerous city to live in even though it is a suburb I won't go out while it is dark. The crime is starting to trickle my direction and my dogs wouldn't protect me as they are people lovers...... So will wait for tonight and hit the mill for boring run. Have decided I need to drop some weight before my run so hoping to get back down to at least in the 160's. So all refuel days are on hold until after race day which is going to be tough but need to start practicing self control. So far so good since last weekend I was about 184 I am down to 177.2 (with all the running around and lack of exercise and bad food choices and beers, I paid the price).

Breakfast
1/2c dry oats
1 tbsp whole flax seed; freshly ground up
1 tsp cacao powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1c soy milk
1 banana

Morning snack
1/4c pumpkin seeds
1 naval orange

Lunch
2 servings tofu
1/4c brown rice cooked in water
1c mixed veggies

Snack
2 servings tofu
1/4c brown rice cooked in water
1c mixed veggies

Dinner
nothing i forgot

Post workout
2 scoops protein powder
1 small fuji apple

new studio sounds great! My trainer-buddy and I are the only women who lift heavy at the gym (and who stay in there for a considerable length of time), we have a reputation for being the two loudest grunters. People have often asked if we get 'looks' from other people but to be honest I've never really noticed as my friend and I just talk to each other and do our own thing and don't look much at others. But last week she went on her own and told me she really did notice the 'looks' and it wasn't comfortable!

Yeah everyone thinks by workout buddy and I are dating or should be dating.... Last night I ran in my new running shoes on the treadmill, which is the last time I will use it until after I run my first 5k, and they felt good. Today I will try my hand at a 5k route I found which will include hills. I gave myself a goal to get back down into the 160s by the time I go do this 5k well I am almost there! I am made my second batch of seitan interested to see how this batch turns out. I ended up rolling it out some to help get some air out. Next week I think I will just make it a log and slice it after it is cooked.

1/2c dry oats
1c soy milk
1 tbsp whole flax seed
1/4tsp cinnamon
1tsp cacao powder

I guess I went a lil overboard on the sodium yesterday without even realizing it but my legs felt stronger during my workout!

That time of month is a cold hearted MF!!!!! I swear aside from the extra large simple smoothie I put weight on..... bloating, no bm, swollen legs. I know I can't trust the scale this week but damn I need to get into the 160s for this run cause I know it will ultimately feel better on my body!!!! Went to go vote and lord the parking lot was FULL!!! Will go before work during the lull time and will be glad when this day is over... I am tired of this election and the mud slinging and all the hateful messages floating around. I kinda want to find a deserted island and stay there.
