Pictureless post

Sorry to be a whiner, but because I didn't feel so great today and my eats were just ok, I'll make this post a pictureless one. I had a really good day, except for the fact that my stomach was aching all day and just feels awful in general.

My food:
Breakfast: raisin bran cereal and coffee

Snack at work: irresistible carrot cake and coffee

Lunch: spinach salad with green peppers, broccoli, feta cheese, and Newman's Tutto Naturale Parmesan and Garlic dressing. I made a little fruit salad of blueberries, strawberries, and bananas and it was perfect.

Dinner: Haven't had yet and it's 8:25. I have no appetite, which is understandable with the condition I am in. I may go eat a Chobani after this since I didn't get any yogurt in my diet today.

My workout:
Despite feeling sick, I had a productive workout. I logged 30 minutes on the elliptical doing the Cross Country intervals. I read Fitness magazine and was inspired by Jillian Michael's article. After the elliptical, I started lifting weights and I didn't think I would complete a full circuit, but I pushed through and did. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I guess the endorphins kicked in. I also added weight to each machine again and I am enjoying the challenge of lifting a little more.

Other than that, I am working on a giveaway post and since I haven't done a giveaway since last fall, I am finding myself being all picky about my review and the post in general. I promise, it will be up soon and you'll have plenty of time to enter.

So happy it's Friday tomorrow! I have the 10k coming up this Sunday, but now that I am sick, I am not sure it's a smart idea to even attempt to walk/run it. We'll see how I feel--maybe I'll be ready for it by Sunday morning!


  1. Ick, sorry you are feeling down - hope you get back to normal soon! And kudos for getting that work out in! That is more than I can say for my lazy self! ;)

  2. I like how you say irresistible carrot cake, as if all carrot cake weren't irresistible. :) Hope you are feeling better tomorrow!

  3. We've all been there lady! You'll get it together again. Stick with it!

  4. gotta love those endorphins haha :) and I read that Jillian Micheals magazine yesterday on the elliptical too! weird..... haha
