Day 2 Volume II
Today I woke up at 4 a.m. and was out the door by 4:50 with my friend Amy. We enjoyed a nice run with some hills and had fun cooling off by running through sprinklers along the way. It really, really makes a huge difference! We went a total of 8.59 miles and I burned about 900 calories; at least according to my Garmin anyway.
Before heading out the door, I ate a banana to help fuel the run. (110 calories, 30 carbs, 0 fat, 1 g protein)
That last hill is the longest, but then it’s all downhill!After the run we changed to our swimsuits and grabbed some ice cold grapes before heading out to the pool. (~104 calories, 2 g carbs, 0 g fat, 1 g protein)
After Amy left, it was time for a real breakfast! I had cooled down finally and my stomach was hungry for eggs! We get our eggs locally from these happy hens. 🙂 I am not of the belief that consumption of all animal protein is bad, but more of the belief that the American culture eats way more than necessary and that factory farming is harmful in a multitude of ways. I choose not to eat meat or dairy because it works for me and I don’t enjoy those foods.
At some point in the midst of making breakfast and saving Lemurs, I also took all my vitamins too.
For lunch it was my turn to cook for Mr. Zucchini Runner and I. We had broccoli, carrots, onions, celery, chopped walnuts and black beans, served with wild rice. (624 calories, 87 g carbs, 20 g fat, 26 g protein)
It didn’t look like much (frozen food never does) but it tasted really good and hit the spot!
Once Mr. Zucchini Runner got home, he made some air popped popcorn, which was a perfect snack for the end of the day. I probably ate more than I should from a fiber standpoint, but it was so tasty! (153 calories, 31 g carb, 2 g fat, 5 g protein)
Grand totals for the day:
49 g fat
75 g protein
Don't miss a thing!
