7/30 Log

Today's workout was moving my inlaws to a new facility. My husband and I spent about an hour loading, carrying and unloading furniture. Then real quick before dinner I did a set of 8 hill sprints, right around the block from my house.

B: green smoothie, same as usual
S: larabar
L: kapamakki roll and spicy tuna roll
S: nuts and plums
D: black beans stewed with corn and summer squash, toped with avocado and tomato.
S: more plums, they are SOOO good right now

Friday 7/29 log

The third day in a row of workouts is always hard to slog through and not very productive. I guess as you get older it's more and more important to make time for recovery. So today was short and sweet:

1.25 mile run along the Emeryville Waterfront
Then over to Berkeley Ironworks for:
Back squats 5x5 @ 125
OHS 3x8 @ 75
5 sets of max reps pullups

B: breakfast smoothie (spinach, blueberry, avocado and plant based protein powder)
L: leftover green bean, summer squash and tofu stirfry from last night, plus 2 tilapia filets
S: larabar, peach
D: the 'everything' at Souly Vegan in Jack London Square: Black Eyed Peas, yams, lentils, mustard greens, BBQ tofu, cornbread, potato salad, vegan mac and cheese. I didn't eat everything. I stuck to the veggies and legumes, let my husband chow down on the bread, pasta and potato salad.
After dinner: 3 vodka cranberries
Late night snack: 3 plums and a handful of mixed nuts

In case you haven't noticed, I eat. A LOT!
