A Rest Day

It’s 6:30 a.m. and I’m awake with nowhere to go!  I don’t have any training planned today. I’ve already accomplished four sessions this week, and I want to be well-rested and full of energy and focus for today and tomorrow — both of which are hugely important days at work.

I’m using the extra time this morning to pack a brain-powering and energizing lunch and breakfast (a task which fell off my agenda last night when I ate dinner at 9 p.m.). This is not as easy to do when you’re out of spinach and tomatoes — two of my staples.

I made a mexican-themed rice bowl with black beans, diced red bell peppers, scallions, brown rice, and a scoop of herbed goat cheese on top:

To round it out, and to get me through the rest of the day, I also packed:

  • A whole wheat tortilla
  • Herdez salsa verde
  • A hard-boiled egg
  • A Honeycrisp apple
  • A string cheese
  • My Clif Kids Z Bar
  • Granola, and oatmeal mixed with extra flax seed, craisins, and sliced almonds
  • A banana

Friday is in sight now!
