This post has some overlap with Half-Marathon Recap 1 and Half-Marathon Recap 2, but I realized for future reference, I'd like all my day's food in one post, so forgive a smidge of repetition.
Wheat Toast, almond butter, 1/2 banana.
(unpictured) Orange wedge
Mini Clif Bar
Peanut Maple Protein Oats (made with peanut flour)
Mom's Asian Coleslaw Salad, double portion of tofu.
and now some new stuff....
Angela-via-Megan's-reference-inspired raw sugar cookie dough balls (1/4 recipe)
2 tbsp raw cashews + 2 tbsp oats + 1 tbsp maple syrup + shake of salt
Blended in the magic bullet, then rolled in plastic wrap and put in the freezer. It made 3 this size, I fed one to boyfriend and ate the other two. So so delicious, and it really does taste like cookie dough.
More Cheezy Potato Veggie Mash. I have eaten this 7 of the last 8 days...it is finally gone. I'll be honest, it's awesome, but I was ready to finish it off. Seven servings is a lot of repetition.
Hot Chocolate = hot almond milk + mint chocolate syrup
A frozen soy yogurt - lemon.
A serving of new-to-me cereal: Kashi Berry Blossoms. It has nothing artificial (even that odd pink/orange color apparently comes from actual fruit) and it tastes like a berry Cap'n Crunch. Typically I go for more grown-up cereal, but this is the sweet puffy perfection that was just what I wanted. It's also been great in my morning yogurt.
And that's what I ate on race day. Also lots of tea and water, and I felt very well re-fueled.
Nutritionally, it was about 20% (healthy) fat, 64% carbs and 16% protein. However, since it was much MORE food than usual, that 16% protein translated into almost 70g, as opposed to my usual around 40-50g.
And today? Not as much to speak of.
There was a delicious yogurt bowl:
There was also 6 hours of lecture followed by an on-line quiz and 5 hours of studying.
Then I came home and did my taxes. I e-filed this year using TaxSlayer...that was so much easier than my usual paper filing. I had to pay a little to file the state one through them, but my time right now has become like money, and it was only like $13.
It's been thrilling.
But guess how much I'm getting back?!
730 dollars! This is great, because my 9-month clothes-shopping fast ends in just a couple weeks; I see pretty professional clothes in my future. But I don't know what else I'll end up doing with it...
Are you getting a tax refund? What would you do with $730 extra dollars?
