- I'll be doing a long-ish run later today (8 miles or so). Initially I'd planned to go early, but when I woke up, guess what? I didn't want to run, and that is perfectly fine. Tim and I did a timer workout yesterday (1 minute work, 1 minute rest for 30 minutes) and my glutes are pretty sore so I think running later when everything's a little more awake will feel better.
- For breakfast today I had an Asian pear and a FlatOut wrap with hummus, carrots, and baby lettuce -- YUM. I was checking the stats on the FlatOut and I think they've made a mistake on the nutrition label. Here's how it reads:
Calories from fat 25
Total fat 2.5 grams (so far, so good)
Total Carbohydrate 17 grams
Dietary fiber 8 grams
Protein 9 grams
What confuses me is this: since protein and carbs are 4 calories per gram, when I do the math, I get 104 calories from the protein and carbs alone. Add in the fat, and you're at 129 calories. I don't particularly care about a 30 calorie difference because I'm not a calorie counter for my own purposes, but I feel like I'm missing something here. Are you supposed to do something with the grams of fiber? Anyone?
- I did a double-under yesterday!!! I have tried and tried to do double unders, but have never been able to make it work. But after watching this Crossfit video, I succeeded. Accomplishment feels great!
- What have I done this morning rather than run? I've been vegging out and loving it. I've watched an episode of Tim Gunn's Guide to Style. Now I'm checking out a new show: Lyon in the Kitchen, and I really really like it. Nathan's food philosophy is right on (read about it here) and I think I'm going to try one of his recipes for dinner tonight.
- Play last night? Not to my liking. In fact, from getting up at 5:15 on Friday and at 6:15 yesterday, I napped through quite a bit of the show. But getting out with my husband? Just so much fun!!!
- Speaking of my husband, he's dropped 10 pounds over the last couple of months! How? Through watching what he eats, and being consistent with exercise. (Shocking, I know!) So now my 40-something man is buying size 31 pants, which is quite an accomplishment, and he looks amazing (and he looked great before).
