Up and At ‘Em

I am up so early on a Sunday morning for me! I usually like to sleep in tip around 8:30 on the weekends, but for some reason I was fully awake at 6:30. I guess that means I have time to write a post before my run 🙂

This week went pretty smoothly here. Nothing exciting going on at school, finally a one week break with no tests, Ill take it!

I also, managed to get all my workouts in this week except for 1 (yay!).

Workouts:

Monday: NROLFW Workout 2B then 3 mile run

Tuesday: got stuck at the tax office for three hours, missed my workout window.

Wednesday: NROLFW Workout 3A then 3.5 mile tempo run on the treadmill.

Thursday: 15 mile bike ride on the stationary bike

Friday: Rest

Saturday: NROLFW Workout 3B and 1.5 mile speed work on the treadmill

As you can see, the treadmill and I were friends this week. I usually avoid the treadmill like the plague, and always run outside. However, this week the weather wasn’t cooperating with me very well. On wednesday, I thought there is no way that I will be able to do a 3.5 mile tempo run on the treadmill. But I pleasantly surprised myself! I just buckled down and pushed myself and I felt great afterwards.

Yesterday morning Jordan and I went to the gym together, which is what we normally do on the weekends. Afterwards when we finally got home, we were starving and I was really wanting something filling. I ended up making sausage gravy with biscuits and fried eggs!

It was so delicious and it definitely hit the spot. I have a little bit left over so I will probably make some with toast this morning after my run 🙂

Right now I am munching on toast, apple with peanut butter, and some coffee. Perfect for a pre-run fuel!

My plans for the rest of the day include laundry and writing a paper due on Tuesday!
Happy Sunday! 🙂

Whats for dinner?

I feel like this question plagues me on a daily basis! I think dinner is my least favorite meal of the day.. I LOVE having a yummy breakfast and lunch is alright, but dinner always just creeps up on me and I never plan that well for it. I’ve decided that along with tracking my workouts daily, I’m also going to try to start documenting my eating habits. I am 100% not trying to loose weight. Im completely happy with where Im at with my body right now! On the other hand, I know that there is a lot of junk/unhealthy things that I am putting in my body on a daily basis, so I am just trying to minimize that and put healthier foods in my body! I think by eating better foods, that I will workout better, and just feel better all around!

I started off great today with the clean eating!

I started off with some oatmeal with strawberries and blueberries and two eggs on the side..

Then during class this morning I snacked on a cliff bar..

When I got home I had a ham and cheese sandwich with some veggies with hummus and pita chips on the side..

In the afternoon I sliced up an apple and ate it with some homemade granola bars I made on Sunday!

Then for dinner I pulled out a hawaiian pizza out of the freezer and made some salads for the side..

Its funny to look back on all the food you ate during the day! Hopefully I keep keep this up during the week 🙂
