I think Pledge to Be Veg day 1 has been very successful. I started Day 1 at midnight ( I was at work so I was awake anyway).
Today I’ve eaten:
- Boca Burger on an Arnold Sandwhich Thin
- Fruit and Nut Trail Mix Bar
- Strawberry Banana Gu (after my run)
- California Grilled Veggie Sandwhich
- Baby Carrots with Veggie Dip
After working my extra shift last night (yay overtime!) I crashed this morning and didn’t wake up until about 3 pm! I desperately wanted to make up for my 9-miler I missed yesterday, so I rushed over to Fort Toulouse park to try to beat the sunset and bang out my 9. I really must find new places to run.
My stats looked like this:
Mile 1 – 8:45
Mile 2 – 8:37
Mile 3 – 8:35
Mile 4 – 8:42
Mile 5 – 8:44
Mile 6 – 8:43
Mile 7 – 8:49
Mile 8 – 8:41
Mile 9 – 8:50
Overall the run went really well, I finished before it got too dark to see. More importantly though I didn’t have any reoccurence of the shin pain I have been feeling recently. However, around mile 7.5 my right knee started really aching. Not a stabbing sharp pain by any means, but just an annoying sore achiness. By the time I finished out my 9 miles it was really aching!
Tim and I headed over to Walmart and I dropped $40 on 2 reusable ice/heat packs, 1 disposable ice pack (for right then), and a box of Prilosec to hopefully take care of the heartburn-indigestion-chest pain – thingy that has been bothering me lately. The cashier looked very confused with my purchases and asked me if I had hurt myself.
By the time I got home I was STARVING! I made the most yummy Grilled Veggie Sandwhiches!
My sandwhich included:
- Garlic Parmesan Foccacia Bread
- Red Pepper
- Red Onion
- Goat Cheese
All of that and olive oil, a smear of mayo and balsamic vinegar for flavor. DEEEEEEEEEVINE!
I sprayed the veggies with a combo of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and grilled them on the George Foreman and then piled them high onto my bread.
Once I assembled the sandwhiches, I grilled the whole thing panini style on the George Forman and sliced them in half. I served it with a side of raw baby carrots and fat free veggie dip.
So healthy! This one definitely ranks in my Top 5 faves!
