Zoo Day!

The zoo was awesome! The kids had soooo much fun. It was like they had never seen an animal before, though I'm sure they've all been to the zoo many times. It was pretty much the best field trip ever and the weather was absolutely perfect! It's looking like the weather is going to be horrible for our field trip Friday though. Ugh.

One thing about the zoo sucks though. The food! YUCK! I didn't pack the usual nice lunch because I couldn't find any freezey things and the thought of warm yogurt grossed me out. I figured I could find a salad there. You can find a salad anywhere. Unfortunately the salads looked horrible! The lettuce was all brown and the carrots were so old they were all white and falling apart. Gross. My choices then were pretty much burger or hot dog, and I went with burger. Not healthy and not satisfying. I'll make sure I have an ice thingy ready to go next time we go on a field trip.

I had the usual egg-bagel thin-cheese breakfast, with a slice of lean ham. Dinner was a nice salad and tuna sandwich (chunk light with light mayo, onions, celery, and pickles on wheat, low-cal bread).

Now the husband is talking about ice cream. Sigh.

It has come to my attention that I'm not eating enough protein. Good to know!! I will work on that! I have a bunch of lean lunch meat so I'll mix up the lunch a bit tomorrow. I have been making an effort to include protein (with the greek yogurt, egg with breakfast, and cottage cheese), but I'll work on it some more. Please feel free to post comments with tips on how to improve what I'm eating! I could use the help!

Workout was good today. It was great to be feeling good again so I could work out with the lovely ladies. It was: run 1 lap, 10 snatch pushes or whatever they're called (what a strange name!), then 10 kettle bell swings, AMRAP 20 (as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes - I got in 12 rounds).

Tomorrow is a NO CHEATING ALLOWED day, with a run planned after work. The weather is supposed to be great so hopefully I can get in a nice long run. I'm going to look into trails and see if there's someplace near work I can try. Any ideas would be appreciated!

During Zoo Lights they offer spiked cider and hot cocoa. Now THAT'S the kind of zoo food I'm talking about ;-)
