So today I had jury duty, yes the dreaded jury duty. I had rescheduled it 3 times and finally it was time to go. I have never been to jury duty, and was truly dreading it. I had a lot of work to do today, and to be frank it’s not how I wanted to start a Monday or my week. BUT I’m actually glad I had to go. I mean I was there ALL DAY (8 am to 5pm), but the whole process was very educational and eye-opening. As the judge said at the end of the day, our system is not perfect, but there is not a better country in the world. I totally agree. But I did thank my lucky stars I was not picked for the trial. It was a sad case and is going to last a while.
Unfortunately, I didn’t plan to be at jury duty all day so I didn’t bring any snacks. I was running late (of course) so I had to stop at Starbucks for coffee and breakfast. For not planning I ended up eating pretty well. I couldn’t drink a lot of water because we were warned that we would not be allowed many bathroom breaks. So with that here were my eats:
Breakfast: Starbucks grande coffee and 1 protein plate minus the cheese and peanut butter.
Snack: Half of a fruit cup
Lunch: Quiznos Chicken BBQ Ranch Salad. I asked for no cheese and the dressing came on the side and only had about 1/4 of the container of dressing.
Snack: Other half of the fruit cup
Dinner: 1 avocado and 1 1/2 cups of Paleoish chili. We don’t include beans and substitute with butternut squash. Yum!
After dinner treat: Hot tea and a few (5) small marshmallows with my favorite 4 year old. 🙂
Throughout the day I think I drank about 1/2 a gallon of water. 😦 Oh well, better than nothing!
My workout plans for the week!
Tuesday: 5 mile run
Wednesday: Weights DVD and 2 mile sprint/interval run
Thursday: 7 – 8 mile run
Friday: RIPPED class
Saturday: 10k race
Sunday: Yoga or rest depending on how the race goes.
Here’s to making a plan and sticking to it. Happy Monday!
