It's Wednesday already?

Here's a quick run down of my Wednesday.
Breakfast:
2 servings oatmeal=300
1 tbs. ground flax seed=50
1/2 cup strawberries=50
Total=400
*In order to receive health benefits from flax seed, you must grind it. One tbs. ground flax really adds some nice texture to oats.

Biked to work and had a great Wednesday of summer camp fun!
Lunch:
2 servings tuna=100
salad with dressing=120
hummus=70
prune=25
*I brought a small apple and some berries for dessert, but was too full after the salad to eat them! So I ate the strawberries while I was making dinner, and saved the organic green apple for another day.
Total=295

When I got home, I decided to eat an early dinner because I have a meeting tonight at 7:30, and I want to fit a workout in before I go. I hate working out on a full stomach. I like to wait at least 2 hours. So, I had to eat a really early dinner.

(Snack: strawberries=35)

Dinner:
2 corn tortillas with refried beans and Quorn chicken (the best fake chicken EVER! Only 80 calories per serving) and black bean salsa=250
Salad with black bean salsa and dressing=140

Dessert!
1/2 tbs. peanut butter=50
1/2 banana=50
Total=490

Daily total=1220

A little bit over my goal today, but I'm pretty happy.

I was planning on meeting a group at the track for a speed workout, but this weather is pretty nasty. Hopefully it will clear up. If not, I'll be stuck with Jillian Michaels. Maybe I'll do all 3 levels at once. Take that, Jillian!

With love,
Audra

*Edit
Made it to the track tonight!
Workout: 400 warm
300x5
1200
Felt slow. I always feel slow on the track. But one day I will feel fast. One day I will be fast.

And I realized something when I was driving home.
Well, if you've been here, you know that I am much more musically inclined than tri-inclined. I remember the first year I was teaching myself guitar and how badly I just wanted to play well, and play like other musicians I admired so much. I remember how much my fingers hurt and even bled. I remember how one day, about 7 years later, I thought to myself..."I am really good at this." I feel like I'm 12 again. Swimming, biking, running until my legs are screaming at me.

I almost took a nap instead of going to the track. I almost changed the 1200 at the end of my workout to an 800. But, I didn't. I kept running.

I am determined to get faster.

Determined!
