Taking It easy

Evening guys! 

This morning's workout was... well... better than the other day's HIIT, but the fact that I can not walk was an issue! I have to admit, I definitely pushed myself too hard. So I took it easy for a while this morning on the treadmill instead of jumping right into my intensity training. I don't want to hurt myself! 
This morning's HIIT: 
1 min @ 4.5 
1 min @ 4.8
1 min @ 5.2
1 min @ 5.6
1 min @ 6.0
1 min @ 6.8--> getting faster!
1 min @ 6.0
1 min @ 6.5
1 min @ 7.0
1 min @ 7.5
1 min @ 8.0 --> made it to 9!
1 min @ 6.0
1 min @6.5
1 min @ 7.0
1 min @ 7.5
1 min @ 8.0
1 min @ 6.0
1 min @7.0
1 min @ 8.9--> up to my "10"!! 
1 min @4.0
5 min @ 3.5, reading a mag to cool off 

After I eased into it and got going, it was a great workout! I was glad I made it back up to my 8.9mph high point again! 

As for my eats, Meal #1 was one of my fave combos
1/2 c eggbeaters cooked with Mrs. Dash Garlic & herb, wilted spinach and mushrooms, LCL cheese wedge and a banana on the side 

Meal #2 was a deeelicious repeat... 
0% chobani, juicy juicy juicy chopped nectarine 

All day I have been sipping on these babies: 
Mojito-water! I've been sprucing up my regular h20 with some fresh mint and lime juice, and voila! Mojito water!

Lunch (Meal # 3) was leftovers, reinvented. 
Bean and corn salad and cajun chicken over mixed greens with chopped cucumber and salsa on top. HUGE MONSTER SALAD= amazingly filling and delicious. Perfecto. 

Meal #4  was also filling + tasty... 
1/2 c lf cottage cheese, blueberries

I spent the day organizing the files on my computer, cleaning the bathroom, and just lazying around!

Dinner was the REAL star meal of the day... 
I sauteed my shrimpies in 1 tsp of EVOO, 1 clove of garlic and added s+p, parsley and basil and a splash of white wine (the good stuff- Riesling from Canada!). Then I placed them atop a bed of 1/2 c brown rice with more asparagus on the side. 

Droool.... little pieces of buttery heaven, with no butter used! Amazing! 

Well, these kept me full for a while but my sweet tooth was kickin' in so I grabbed meal #6 a couple hours later- "Chocolate Milk" and a Kiwi! 
I used Protein Powder + 8oz h20 + a splash of almond milk. Creamy! 

In other news... I hope you enjoyed my Installment # 1 of my Winery posts... (If you haven't read it, it's the post right before this one!) 

And I have to thank Angela from Oh She Glows (And Glo Bakery!) for helping me send my boyf a fun 1-year gift (it's on Sunday)... Cookies! He loves them! =) 

I'm going to bed. Night!

Wooohoo - look at you go on your HIIT! Awesome job. I know I was the same way the first week. I had so many people asking me if I hurt myself because I couldn't walk. HIIT's helped a bit but really having my FREE DAY off was the best. Week 2 gets so much better.

Delicious eats all day long - YUM!
