If my alarm had gone off....it's on the fritz. It's done this before, and no, I did not hit the snooze button (this time).
So this had me frazzled. I didn't want to start off both challenges in the hole so to speak. But didn't have time to run before work, so focused on food.
Fixed my shake - added a small banana, PB2, ice, chocolate shake powder and blended it all up. It was very, very frothy. Very thick, and very chocolaty. Next time I will add more ice. It wasn't terrible, it was actually tasty, but I think it would have been better colder. So more ice next time. Next time meaning tomorrow.
My food choices were all clean today - no junk. I'm already feeling withdrawals from my many-cookie a day habit I had.
I got my run/walk in about 45 minutes after dinner. It's very humid, and for some reason my hips were feeling the run, so I had to walk more than I wanted to, but I felt good about getting in the distance.
Tomorrow will be Ripped in 30 DVD, then 5 mile run/walk on Wed.
