My sister shared her training plan (Idk where she got it); it's an 8-week plan that includes some nice strength and cross training. I jumped right in on the first week, and Tuesday's workout was: 1.5 mile run.
My workout---> 4.5 miles, 55 minutes on treadmill: 1.5 miles @ 6mph pace, then .5 mile interval run/walk for the rest. I was SWEATY! And let me tell you...hopping on the treadmill at 6mph right off the bat REALLY helped me! I'm excited to continue this training plan...I think it's really going to work! I need structure to be successful, so the daily exercise plan will help me stay on track. SO PUMPED.
I haven't done a nice post since Saturday, so I'll catch you up from the weekend/early-week happenings...mostly in pictures, because really, those are more interesting than my rambling! :)
Sunday Funday happened afterall, with a surprising realization that I had been PAID! A day early!
|BEN! TARGET! NOWWWW!|
|...and a cut-up yellow pepper, you know, to be healthy. ;)|
|Van's with almond butter and chocolate chips. :-D|
Then, much to my
|yogurt mess- chobani 0% blueberry + kashi go lean...my all-time fav breakfast!|
|oh yes I did.|
In the mix:
- shredded carrots
- sliced radishes
- sliced clementine
- slivered almonds
- GOBS OF BLUEBERRY VANILLA GOAT CHEESE
- and a few blue corn flax chips for CRUNCH.
And, here we are to TUESDAY.
I'm about to go get in bed and read, but first let me share a personal victory...
My husband is a MEAT-EATER. He likes burgers. He likes chicken. He LOVES steak. He does not love veggies.
But, I feel like he's isn't going to last very long if he keeps up with his eating full pizzas, hot pockets, HUGE pots of mac-n-cheese lifestyle with no veggies or fruits in sight! And trust me, I need that man to stick around...<3
So, tonight, I fed him tofu stir-fry. And he liked it! (well, aside from the comment, "this would be better if the tofu was steak"...which I ignored.)
We made a big stir fry of red and orange peppers, tofu, zucchini, mushrooms, and franks hot sauce! Ben had his in a tortilla shell with cheese, I had mine on a plate...with a side of roasted asparagus and brussel sprouts. SO YUMMY!
|cook, cook, cook!|
|roast, roast, roast!|
|eat, eat, eat!|
Time to go hop in bed and read for a bit...early to bed tonight, I have a date with the gym for some early morning cross training before a busy day at school!
I'm ordering this in black and a dark berry color, after seeing/hearing about Skinny Runner love on them...and after having my Under Armour tank top ride up on my bum about 12,000 times during my run today. Can't wait for a nice, loose, LONG running top! They're on sale! $17.99! HUSTLE! :-D
