My morning started with a 5:40am alarm. I wake up pretty early to get a workout in before classes start. I leave for school at 8:00 and I like to have a solid hour at the gym (somedays more!). Honestly, I probably could go in the afternoon or evening some days, but I don't like to. If I go later in the day, I am missing time I could be studying. If I go in the morning, I am not really missing anything!
I did 5 miles on the treadmill and a little bit of stretching before heading home.
I made coffee and a bowl of oat bran with ground flax seed, cinnamon, banana, and peanut butter. I didn't have time for the coffee, so I poured it in a travel mug to take to class and tried to eat my oat bran while doing hair and make-up.
I had two classes in the morning (one included treats. Sorry, no picture of the sugar cookie) and then I headed to the library to study.

I pulled out some lunch in the library: vegetable lentil soup, crackers, and Roots hummus (my favorite!!).
This soup included broccoli, lentils, tomatoes, mushrooms, onion, celery, carrots, and bell peppers. I love making soup on Sunday for weekday lunches and quick dinners. It also clears out any little bits of vegetables left in the refrigerator.
Snacks while I study included watermelon and yogurt.

I wanted something high-protein and was feeling a little lazy, so I made scrambled eggs with mushrooms and spinach, peanut butter toast, and chicken sausage. I enjoyed this while watching Kim of Queens on Lifetime... anyone watched this? It is so funny.
Post dinner I had a few Anna's Ginger Thins and chatted with AR on the phone before bed.
Here is a breakdown of my meals for the day:
I try to track my meals for for the carb/fat/protein percentages during marathon training, just to keep me mindful. I don't use My Fitness Pal every day, but I think it helps. I've been trying to up my protein and fats, so this was a good day for me :)
Do you ever track your food?
What's your favorite yogurt brand?
