Running & Meal Plans

This morning I got to the gym and jumped on an elliptical for 30 minutes.

I followed that with Week 1 Day 2 of a Hal Higdon 10k training program. Today's workout was 1.5 mile run. I finished in 15:23 and could not be happier. I haven't lost too much speed, it is my endurance that went down the toilet. While I was running, my legs were not tired at all. It was my breathing that was the problem. Also, my attention span disappears whenever I get on the treadmill. So, today I played a little treadmill game. I went to my bombtastic playlist I made, that consists of slower songs for warming up transitioning into songs to pump me up. I selected "3" by Britney Spears and started running. During the verse, I ran at a 5.8 pace and once the chorus came, I turned up to 6.5. I was so sweaty when I left the gym, but felt fantastic!

After that, I needed breakfast pronto! I had a smoothie that consisted of:

  • 1 Small Banana
  • 1/2 Cup of Strawberry's
  • 1 Scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1/2 Cup of Winder Farms Milk
  • 1/4 Cup of Water
  • Handful of Spinach
It was sooo tasty paired with a slice of bread and a little bit of PB.

In blog news, I changed up my headers a little and added a new "Weigh Ins & Rewards" tab if you want to check it out.

Annie had asked me to do a sample of my meal plan I am doing. She asked and now I answer!

  1. Smoothie and PB Toast
  2. Greek Yogurt, Fruit and Cereal
  3. Pancakes/French Toast(Weekends Only)

  1. No Pocket Pita Sandwich with Honey Turkey, Red Leaf Lettuce, Tomato, Sprinkle of cheese and honey mustard(<----this week's front runner. SOOO Good!)
  2. Half a chicken salad and a cup of soup
  3. Half a turkey sandwich on wheat with a cup of tomato bisque soup. 
Dinners(this week):

Sunday: Chad made a roast(and it was amazing!), so we had carnitas.
Monday: Leftover carnitas
Tuesday: Him-leftover carnitas. Her-Squash filled pasta, broccoli, chicken, tomatoe sauce and a touch of cheese
Wednesday: Him-Italian Sausage and Fries. Her-Chicken Sausage, veggies, and tomato sauce with a couple of stolen fries.
Thursday: TBD
Friday: Pizza night with all of my best friends :)

I am a creature of habit. I eat the same 3 things for breakfast and lunch most of the time. Dinner is always all over the place.

Have a great day :)!!!!!!!
