Just thought I should update that when I went to Trader Joe’s today, I found that TJ’s Cookie Butter has made a comeback!! Go get it, NOW!
Happy Day Late Easter!
Last night was rough to say the least. I spent half the night coughing, sneezing, and blowing my nose. Once I woke up this morning I realized that everyone else in my family is feeling sick as well. The first thing I thought about after coming to grips with the fact that this cold may last a few days was my workout schedule. I know the workouts for this week, and today was supposed to be moderate (4 x 1000). The competitive side of me always comes out when I miss a workout, and it frustrates me that someone may be training when I am not. However, maybe taking a rest day will set me a day ahead of my competitors. Mabye I need this rest day, and my sickness is the body’s way of telling me to take a rest. This brings me to the question(s)…………
How do you know when to take a rest, and when to push through?
Does missing a workout cause cause stress and fear for loss of conditioning/ability?
Hey, guys! I am on Easter break and do not have too much time for a post, so I thought I would show you some recent eats (on the road).
A great book to read on the (long) ride! Book review coming soon!
Green Bean “chips” with a laughing cow cheese
Subway sandwich with all the veggies except olives and pickles. Dressing = sweet onion and red wine vinegar
Questions – Do you find it hard to eat healthy on road trips?
What are some of your favorite snacks to bring on the car ride?
I have not blogged since August, and I left with no explanation. I just dropped of the blog world, and spent time to focus on myself. I did this because I realized I was not fully healed from my disordered eating, and I was sick of portraying something I wasnt. However, over this time I am proud to say that I have overcome many obstacles that used to hinder me. I no longer feel guilty about eating a bowl of ice cream, and have learned to enjoy life to the fullest. That is why I have decided to let blogging back into my life, and I hope you forgive me for my time spent away.
If your schools are like mine you don’t really get a choice about what they serve you. That is why I bring my lunch to school every day or else I would be eating culvers, panda express, and pizza hut all week. I will tell you more about how to pack a perfect school lunch later in the week, but for now SNACKS.
I have two xc practices a day one in the morning and one in the evening. Today we did a total of 9 1/2 miles.
- I woke up early and ate oatmeal about 45 minutes before breakfast
I had chocolate oats with 1/4 cup of steel cut oats, almond milk, chocolate pb2, egg whites, and carob powder…..with kashi on top of course:)
Dinner was a steak, bean, and avocado salad! It was so delicious.
A bedtime snack was maple almond butter and whole wheat thins
