I woke up this morning early to go to the gym, but just could not get out of bed. I was exhausted. My body is aching everywhere (I'm sure I'm sore from derby, yoga, AND kickboxing - oh my!) and I just could not do it. I don't feel too bad though since I'll still get a workout at derby practice, though.
Tonight is my 2nd practice back after about 3 weeks off of derby. After giving myself a good ass-kicking on Monday night (I have a bruise under my ribcage where I knocked the wind out of myself), I'm wondering how tonight will go. I'm hoping it will be better!
Acai smoothie (banana, strawberries, frozen blackberries, ground flaxseed, about 1/2 a cup of unsweetened coconut milk, a drizzle of brown rice syrup & an Acai smoothie packet)
Unsalted mixed nuts (mostly cashews) - about 1/3 a cup
Bok Choy with brown rice (bok choy boiled in water, over brown rice mixed with some Bragg's Liquid Amino Acids, a squirt of Hoisin sauce, and topped with olive oil mixed with 1 smashed umeboshi plum*, splash of balsamic vinegar, and a squirt of agave - sprinkled with gomashio**)
*Alicia Silverstone talks a lot about the benefits of eating umeboshi plums in her book The Kind Diet (which is where I got this recipe). You can read up on more info about them here too. I got mine at Vitamin Cottage in the Asian food section.
**Gomashio is also referenced in The Kind Diet - she has a recipe where you make your own. It's kind of a salt-alternative, made with sesame seeds. I just bought mine at the store - so much easier!
Coffee w/ honey & milk (I didn't feel like messing with soymilk today... I hate the way it can curdle sometimes in store bought coffee)
Whole Wheat Wasa cracker with peanut butter & fig jelly (I know this isn't exactly a rounded dinner, but I had to just grab something before a group of us went to a concert! I'll tell ya about it tomorrow...)
2 hour roller derby practice
