It's 5:00 in the Morning...

Last night having this as the last thing I saw before I went to bed wasn't exactly my favorite.
It happened today. Real life. I knew it was coming, but i secretly hoped it wouldn't. My alarm is the Wiz Khalifa/Lily Allen song that starts out..."It's 5:00 in the morning..." I think I'm funny sometimes.

In all honesty today was a GREAT first day back into my routine. There is just something great about having control over my workout time and my eating and all of that jazz that makes me feel reaaal good.

My workout today was a killer. I was sick for the majority of the break, and my energy levels were super low. That always makes getting back in to the swing of things a little harder.

Cardio: 5.6 mile run

Set: #1 (alt between the two exercises three times)
15 assisted pull ups
12 squat presses with a 35 lb plate

Set: #2 (alt between the two exercises three times)
12 Squat curls with a 40 lb bar
1 minute plank with a 25 lb plate on my back

Set: #3 (alt between the two exercises three times)
15 push ups with the TRX
15 triceps presses with the TRX

It was a pretty simple workout, and I swear on a normal day it wouldn't have been so bad, but MAN I was TIRED after I was done.

My food was on track today as well, and it felt great.

5:30 AM Breakfast: 1/2 cup of slow cook oats with 1TBS of natural peanut butter.
11:30 AM Lunch: Salad from Brick Oven. At this point in my day I had two ingredients in my cupboard, both of which were eaten for breakfast. I was done with work and my work out for the day and I was STARVING. I hadn't had time to go to the store yet, and so it was a to-go salad bar kind of lunch day.
My salad consisted of...spinach and romaine lettuce, cucumbers, beets, kidney beans, sprouts, peas, diced egg whites, pineapple, mandarin oranges, cottage cheese, and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds and peanuts. With a side of ranch for some fork dipping. It was delicious.
4:00 PM Snack: a handful of raw almonds, a clemantine, and some sugar free hot chocolate
7:45 PM Dinner: A bagel thin with shaved cracked pepper turkey and honey dijon mustard. A handful of baby carrots and a cup of Amy's organic chunky tomato bisque soup.

It was great to be back with my clients today and to hear them talk about goals and momentum going into the New Year. It seems like everyone is glad to have all of the Christmas junk out of the house, and to have a good start going forward. I hope you feel the same way.

Are you feeling positive momentum going into the new year as well? Have you gotten rid of your holiday junk yet, or is it still looming around your house? I vote you throw it out! Fill your pantry and fridge with good, healthy foods. Make some goals to eat better and you will fell better in return!

Thank you for the motivation!
Today was my first day of early morning workouts. Woke up at 6am, slowly leaning my way towards 5am wake up calls.
I stocked up my fridge last night with lots of fruits, veggies and lean proteins. My goal is to focus more on fueling my body correctly for marathon training coming up. I have felt the difference of being on a training plan with eating junk vs eating healthy this past year so I'm choosing to eat healthy :)

yes! i definitely agree. it was tough to come back to waking up early, work, etc. but honestly i was so ready to get back into a routine...and a healthy one!

Yay for routine...I have to admit I am kind of a sucker for it. Nice workout! We need to get together to run.

It was hard to wake up to get the kids off to school but I love being back in a routine.
I threw away my junk food the day after Christmas - all of it. My MIL would have cried to see it go to waste. I restocked the house with healthy snacks and have meals planned for the next week - that way I'm not tempted to eat out.
That is a killer workout.

I just have to tell you that I really enjoy your blog. I have read it for awhile (I think I got it off hungry runner girl's blog) and I always walk away with some helpful information. Thanks!
