Evening! Wow — there was such a great response to the 30 Day Shred Challenge. More than 40 readers signed up for Shredders Support! If you want to take on the challenge, too, shoot me an e-mail at email@example.com. Some of you mentioned joining in the comments, but please e-mail me, too!
I worked late tonight… which typically spells disaster for my evening runs. I wanted to go on a run AND go to Wal-Mart (for hand weight for the 30 Day Shred Challenge)… and my desire to do either was rapidly waning by 6:30. But before I talked myself out of running, I threw on my gear and a backpack and ran to Wal-Mart! Two birds with one stone!
Wal-Mart is only 1.25 mile away from my house, but seriously… something is better than nothing! I’m really trying to drop the "all or nothing" attitude that I have about working out, friends, money, cookies… 🙂
I ran home with the hand weights in my hands (it’s really difficult to run 1.25 miles with 3 pounds in each hand!) and some other items in my backpack.
- Duration: 40 minutes (time includes shopping; total running distance 2.5 miles)
- Calories Burned: 200 (estimate)
My mid-morning snack was banana and PB.
Lunch was couscous (about 1.5 servings), pinto beans, sliced cucumber, broc.
Mid-afternoon snack #1 was granola and yogurt.
Plus two Girl Scout cookies.
Mid-afternoon snack #2 was a nut mix with some raisins.
After my workout, I cooked dinner. The star ingredient was….
Amy’s Minestrone soup (James is such a good model)! I ate the soup with a side salad.
And since the soup is light on cals (only 180 for the whole can), I had a piece of WW toast with pumpkin butter as well.
I just realized today was completely meatless!
Have a great night!
way to run to walmart and back (with weights!)
I am too using 3 pound weights with jillian’s 30-day shred. Fun times! 🙂
BTW, I did email you … please let me know if you have further questions or what not! I hope I was able to give you some answers/information! LOL
