Good Morning! Sorry I didn’t get in a post last night, once I got back from the airport I was so wiped out I just wanted to eat some dinner and hop into bed.
heres the recap 🙂
Yesterday morning I woke up and made some oats with half skim milk and half water. I sprinkled it with some golden flaxseed and a packet of justins maple almond butter. His mom has the organic golden ground flaxseed. does anyone know the what the difference is between that and the regular flax seed ?
For lunch we went out to a place called juice box. I got the grilled mediterranian veggie wrap. Then we walked down to CRUMBS! such a cute cupcake shop, i loved the atmosphere inside. And i loved their logo 🙂 They were giving out samples, so I got the coconut cupcake sample which was so fresh and delicious, and then decided on the carrot cake. Chase got the reese’s cupcake. When we got home, i took about 1/4 slice of each. The carrot cake was good, but was just so incredibly sweet, i kinda wished that i got the coconut one, but it was still really good and moist. The reese’s cupcake was realllllllly yummy. The icing was pb and had reese’s chunks on it with some ground peanuts and the cupcake itself was pb and chocolate. realllly really good. I officially was on a sugar overload.
I also forgot to tell you that his parents just recently got the Wii, and we practically played all day saturday, and a good chunk of time on sunday. we bowled, played tennis, golfed, boxed, played baseball for endless hours, and i’ll tell you what. my right arm is SORE! I didn’t really expect it to feel like a real workout, but my arm was doin some work this weekend! It is such a fun system, i would really love to get one at some point. The Wii Fit told me my age was 34 so next time i’m there im’ going to try it again and see if i get younger 🙂 haha
I went to the airport and picked up some dried apricots to snack on and had a late dinner around 9 when I got home. My dad had picked up some Afghan takeout, so I took the rest of the veggie platter. one of my all time favorite meals. I am so in love with the baby pumpkin. There rest on the plate is spinach, eggplant, potatoes, chickpeas, rice, and naan bread.
This morning I had a bowl of shredded wheat, a small banana, and some unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
Today marks the 2 month mark until my 10k race. It’s time to buckle down. Today is also the first day of my official 8 week 10k training plan! I have decided that since it’s time to get focused on training I also need to really zone in on my eating. I have declared this week my CFW and can’t wait to start feeling great. These are the rules that I have made for myself:
- no refined carbs
- no refined sugars
- no frozen meals
- lots of fruits/veggies
- no dairy
- no bars
- no caffeine
- no dessert
I will let you guys know how the week is going for me, i’m hoping it won’t be tooo difficult, but i’m going to need to do a lot of meal planning and be prepared. I have really been relying on my bars to get me through the day and have been eating at least 1 a day for a while now. I want to try and wean myself off them a little so that they are more like treats and for emergency purposes rather than every day snacks. They’re pretty expensive to have as daily snacks and i think this will save me a little money too. This is going to be the toughest part of my CFW I think for the week right along with DESSERTS! This also means, that I am only going to eat whole grain cereal or oatmeal for breakfast this week, and ultimately means no puffins. I have also become really addicted to these and eat a ziplock bag full every single day. This is going to be a toughie too. Let’s hope i make it through the week!!
Today after work i’m going to go over to the bikram yoga studio in Columbia and sign up for the 10 day pass. I am really excited about this, and hope that I can make it through the whole class tonight! It’s such a good deal for $25, seeing that just taking a single class is $20.
Here’s to the start of a great week!
