Day 1 of a very exhausting 7 weeks.
Except for the 3 days i have races i will be working Saturday and Sunday for the next 7 weeks at a tulip festival. I am working 7 hours a day along with my normal 40 hour/week job and my training.
Today was my first day at the festival. 7 hours on my feet which is not something i have done in a very long time. It is fun and doesn’t really feel like work which is nice but man is hard on the body until you get used to it.
They have booths and rides and obviously tulips and u-pick fields and all kinds of stuff.
I tried to pack a lunch but ate it as a snack so i got a garden burger for my lunch.
My feet were already crazy sore when i got home and my body was exhausted but i needed to run and i knew if i sat down i wasn’t getting back up. So i had a quick snack and Artemis and I set out for a run. My goal was 6 miles but by 2 miles my feet were alternating between feeling like they were on fire and sharp pain so we headed home. My 6 mile run became a 2.5 mile run.
I put ice on my feet immediately
I am very thankful that i have the ability to stop myself so i can recover and not seriously injure myself. I have so many races planned this year i will not let pride or stupidity get in my way.
While icing my food i checked outbmy first bulu box.
Bulu box is a sample box of fitness/health/weight loss stuff.
This will definitely be a snack for me tomorrow.
Will be using this on tacos soon
Perfect size to keep in my purse
It came with 2 samples and I’ve totally already taken one. It was actually pretty delicious.
This will come in handy over the next few weeks.
I don’t have allergies so i will probably give this to someone else.
I can always use stuff like this.
Every day you work you get to take home a free bouquet :):)
And now i am going to eat something, pack my bag for tomorrow, maybe read if i can keep my eyes open and then pass out!
How was your Saturday?

You have a lot going on right now!! Glad you’re feeling good from your workouts. I just started trying to track my macros and downloaded my fitness pal app. I have yet to meal prep cuz it’s only been a few days but I like that the app lets you scan packages and has a good list of foods to pick from. I need to head to the grocery store to get stuff for my prep but tomorrow is gonna be a busy day for me! Maybe Monday morning after the gym I can do it. I worked out with my friend today and did a lot of weighted punching/boxing type movements, my face was bright red! I need to step up my cardio so hopefully I will be doing more training like that. You already know I’m such a picky eater but man I need to come up with some good ideas to get all my protein and less fat! Hope your knee is feeling better!
