So Thanks to the Weird-for-me week, I didn’t do a workout “plan” Monday. Actually, if you asked me Monday, I thought I was going to be taking a break from running. . .
But, after 24 hours of good rest and mental re-booting, I felt better and more inspired than I have been in a long time.
This week I’ve made a very concerted effort to eat Whole, natural, and GOOD FOR ME foods through out the entire day, not just when it’s convenient.
I’ve eaten a lot of oatmeal, fresh and dried fruit, peanut butter and tortillas, and other fun foods to get me through my work day. As well as yummy salads, delicious pizza, sushi, and homemade tacos to get me through dinner.
My energy and state-of-mind has been better than ever, and I have been feeling GREAT. Through out the entire week I’ve only had a half of a protein bar. . . and considering I was eating them daily, sometimes TWICE daily, through out the week, this is pretty great progress.
To go along with my good eats and good energy, my workouts have been pretty spectacular as well 🙂
- Monday: REST and reboot
- Tuesday: 4 mile run
- Wednesday: AM 4 mile run, PM 3 mile run + Abs
- Wednesday: 3 mile run + full body workout
- Friday: 4 mile run
This weekend we have possible ski plans . . . with hopes of multiple (indoor) runs interspersed. I couldn’t be happier with how my body has rebounded this week, and my hope is that there is no lookin’ back. My body has been responding WELL to making the little bit of extra effort to have whole, real food. . . and I’ve been able to push a wee bit harder in response. All good news for this girl :).
Cheers to healthy eating, exercise, and balance.
