The sun has decided to come out from hiding.
We’ve had a rainy week here in SoCal, but today was great. Sunny and clear.
Which means, I abandoned the treadmill today and ventured outdoors to go to the park for a 4 mile run.
I was excited to get out and listen to new Jillian Michaels podcasts. I haven’t kept up in downloading her weekly episodes, so this week I downloaded 9 new episodes. Today, I listened to an episode about cross training and changing up your workouts. I have some plans in changing my workout routine after the half marathon training is done.
For the last several months, my workouts have been mainly hiking and running and training for the race this coming Sunday. My running mileage has doubled since I am training, but at the same time, my strength training workouts has decreased tremendously. The way I look at it, there’s a direct correlation between the two. Anyways, I can’t wait to add some fun and different workouts after the half marathon race is done.
Speaking of changing things up, I have been trying different combinations for my breakfast. I still love oats and it will always be my classic breakfast choice, but lately, I feel that after I eat a bowl of oats, I feel lethargic. I want to go back to bed after eating a warm and comforting bow of oats in the morning. Or it could be the weather or being tired from my run…who knows?
Two Nature’s Path Hemp waffles, perfectly double toasted. I love them crunchy so I don’t mind the edges being a little burnt. I used agave for syrup.
1 egg + 1 egg white to add protein
What I consider a complete a balanced breakfast for me. It keeps me full until lunch.
I always try to cook quinoa on Sundays and then will combine it with any vegetables I have on hand. I’ll use the quinoa and vegetable mix and eat it throughout the week for lunch. I’ll top the mix with dinner leftovers.
Baked tofu and quinoa vegetable mix for lunch. I also ate a gala apple with my lunch.
Chobani + cereal for afternoon snack. I stocked up on Chobani since it was on sale for $1 last week. Score!
I was excited for dinner because I made one of our favorite dishes.
Eggplant Parmesan (made with almond flour).
Served with roasted broccoli.
For dessert, which I am eating right now….crackers with maple peanut butter.
I hope your having a great week so far.
