Today's Food and Workouts... I'm HUNGRY!!!!

Welcome to June! Can you believe it?! Wasn't it just Christmas? Yeesh! Yesterday's food is all updated, and today's is right on track (see Cooler Page). It's Wednesday, so after work, I'll hit the gym for my 15 minute Abs class, then do my HIIT & steady cardio, then clean up and head over to the bowling alley (they tend to appreciate the cleaning up portion of my routine, lol). I've got dinner packed in my cooler and ready to go. I've got some Green Leaf Lettuce leaves I'll be dousing in mustard and wrapping my pork tenderloin in, plus some raw sliced peppers and almonds.

I'm particularly hungry today. I got home from my weight session and grabbed a baby-banana for the quick sugar hit for my muscles, and a protein bite (a failed experiment, but I needed the protein, and it was clean and handy). That got me through until breakfast (barely - I mean by the skin of the teeth-barely). Now I'm just past snack 1 and am still very, very hungry. Because of the banana & protein bite this morning, I don't have my pre-bed shake/ice cream, so dinner will be it for me. Unless I'm desperate enough to grab a cucumber. We'll see how it goes.

Here's today's cooler contents: (click on the pic to go to the cooler page)

My workouts are going well. I'm so very sore right now! Tab and I did Chest/Triceps on Monday and I really feel that bullets would bounce off my pecs. I am so, so, so very sore. The glutamine supplement I take (as a during/post workout drink) helps reduce muscle soreness (one of many awesome benefits), so I can only image how bad I'd be hurting if I wasn't sucking that stuff down! LOL!
