First off, I’d like to say that Wednesday was a wonderful day of eats. However, I caught the lazy bug and didn’t snap a single picture the whole day. You win some, you lose some.
Aside from Wednesday, Thursday wasn’t all that bad so let’s dive right in.
Breakfast – 7:15 am
Two pieces of Ezekiel toast + Barney Butter almond butter on one & PB&Co. White Chocolate PB on the other + nanner slices + chia seeds + coconut
This is a recycled photo (my camera battery was dead) but you get the jist of it.
Workout – 8:50 am
If you don’t already know, I’m training for my first half-marathon in Charlottesville, VA on April 6th. Accidentally, I began my training plan a month early (whoops!) so the past few weeks I took a break from long runs.
Well, yesterday I decided to get back into training with a 10 miler. Before starting my run I knew if I could do 10 miles then I would be able to do the extra 3.1 on race day.Â
Surprisingly enough those 10 miles went by way faster than expected and I felt great the whole way through. My goal was to stay under 9 minutes per mile and justÂ finish.Â Goal attained.
During my run I stopped for water every time I ran past my car which ended up being three times and then I nommed on some Sports Beans at miles 3 and 7.
Running is almost completely a mental sport. It’s not about how fast you go or how far you it’s just that you go. My mind is in total control of my body when I run; if my mind is in the right place then my body will follow suit.
As soon as I got home I downed a pineapple coconut water to replenish my electrolytes — tasty tasty — and then got to work on lunch.
Lunch – 11:45 am
Roasted veggies, yes please!
Jennie-O turkey burgers have been quite the popular protein choice ’round these parts lately.
Spring mix + roasted zucchini, grape toms, sweet tater with rosemary + Jennie-O turkey burger + goat cheese + red onion + balsamic reductionÂ
I wish I could have this salad again…right now. Darn Lent and Fridays.
Not a single snack was photographed yesterday. My apologies! But I did graze a little throughout the day with a Peanut Butter Cookie Luna bar, some mixed nuts, and an orange. All very satisfying.
Sophie can fill in for the lack of snack pics. Look it! So cute! 🙂
Dinner – 6:30 pm
Slice of Ezekiel + TJ’s cookie butter microwaved for 10 seconds
A serious craving for bread — specifically buttered rolls from O’Charley’s (Oh, how I love those things.) — struck as I was fixing dinner.
Three egg white scramble with shredded carrots + spinach + shreddedÂ mozzarellaÂ + ketchup
Before I dug into my egg white scramble I realized I had to crumble the remnants of Cheesy Garlic Bread Lays on top. Seriously, I had to.
I mean, I ran 10 miles after all. 😉
Dessert – 8:00 pm
Dark chocolate chips
Of course, I couldn’t end the night without a taste of dark chocolate.
The rest of my night was spent being a college student with some awesome girls out in Ttown.
Hope every one has a great weekend! I’ll holler at cha laterz.
