Another one bites the dust and another one gone and another gone, another bites the dust.
Post run I got to take a quick cold ‘shower’ really it was just a rinse off since even after they ‘fixed’ it, we have no hot water.
Lunch was the last of my pasta with bolognase sauce
I got to work on my meal prepping.
My attempt at my yogurt bites
I cheated on the granola and of course it didn’t turn out well. It tasted good but didnt hold up well.
Add fruit on top, remember that giant thing of blueberries I got a few weeks ago? I froze most of them
Then into the freezer they went!
They taste like a dessert! It’s wonderful!
I also made a chicken pasta salad
And of course, my sweet baby girl!!!!
Love this photo!!!!
And now chicken is in the slow cooker overnight.
How was your weekend?
Did you make any good food?
I got some cuddles while I ate my bagel and watched TV.
Then we got up and got ready to run
The goal was 11 miles
But this is how far we made it
Since I have family in town I was trying to coordinate when my mom would come over and how far I could run before then.
That is how far I got. I planned on maybe going back out and seeing if mom would walk with me but I made a rookie mistake
Then mom didn’t want to go out so I jumped on the treadmill to get in a few more miles and ended up with killer cramps. Anytime I would try to run faster or or for longer than half a mile the cramps would get bad, then I’d walk a bit and they’d go away then start coming back. And I was guzzling Gatorade so maybe I was low on salt which seems insane since I ate out so much yesterday.
But normally I do half Gatorade half water and a gel or some combination but I always use gels. I didn’t this time so that might have had an effect. Very interesting.
I got another 1.3ish miles on the treadmill so I got just over 7 miles in today.
I’ll have to add in another 4 miles somewhere this week.
How was your morning?
What form of energy do you use during your run?
When my family gets together food is what we congregate around.
Aun, mom, stepdad
Uncle, aunt, grandma
Deciding what to eat was a difficult decision
Artichoke and fried onion appetizer
We like beer flights and tasters as well
Copperhead Salmon with mango quinoa salad and heirloom tomatoes……..OH MY GOSH this was sooooo good and tasted so fresh
The table shared two desserts. A brownie and a blackberry cobbler
We couldn’t wait to taste them so the pics were taken after the desserts had made the rounds hahahahaaha
Coffee after dinner!!!!!
Gotta love when mom comes to town and gives me shoes that didn’t fit her!!!
Sadly these are a little big but I will get pads to put in them because they are too cute to not keep
Also did some laundry today and prepped one meal for next week.
Are you good at ordering at restaurants?
Fun fact , I am GREAT at ordering, I am almost never disappointed with my meals.
Love waking up to here
Got delicious breakfast with my mom and stepdad at Biscuits Cafe
This is how I stop myself from eating anymore when I’m full, otherwise I keep snacking
Watching an old episode of Survivor while I do some work and hang with my puppy.
Gonna do a short run this afternoon then hang with the family.
How is your Saturday going?
What is your favorite breakfast?
Mine is a toss up between simple eggs, bacon and toast, and the decadent stuff like pancakes, French toast and waffles.
Work would not end today Then traffic was sucky! Finally I made it home and it’s roasting!!!!
This is our AC hahahaha.
Mama got to my place not long after me
I love my wonderful mom.
Then we went on a mom sponsored grocery shopping trip!!!!
You can thank my mom for the delicious food pics that will show up in the next 2 days hahahaha.
Rewatching the Barkley marathons.
Watched ‘tracks’ with my mom earlier.
I’m working on my hydration because I lagged in that area today.
She’s hard to see in the dark but you can kind of make out her collar to the left lol
Once this is done it’s bedtime.
Oh man so in sad new update, my triathlon has been cancelled!!!! They were sort of vague about the why, basically just unforseen consequences and things beyond their control. I deferred my race entrance to next year. But I’m still bummed. On the plus side this gives me more time to save and get a good bike. I’ll keep you posted.
How was your friday?
I trades shifts with a coworker so I can get off early because I have family in town so I got to work before the sun was up
I love getting here early, I feel like I get so much more done.
On Fridays I pick out my meals for next week so I can prep over the weekend.
Pintrest is my best friend on Fridays.
I am going to make the lettuce taco boats again from last week because they were soooooo delicious.
Meal #2 will be sweet chili pineapple chicken with veggies over rice.
Meal #3 will be a Mediterranean pasta salad that I am going to add shredded chicken to.
Snack #1 will be celery with peanut butter
#2 will be this!!!
Do you do meal prep??
Thankfully the migranes faded. I took 3 ibuprofen and started drinking a Coke. I took it easy at work in the AM and by lunch or was bouncing back.
With to lunch with my family who is in town. You’ll see them as I do more with them over the weekend.
After lunch My coworker and friend Kate, who went to lunch with me picked blackberries outside work before heading back in
I noticed that I have shoulder bruises from the weighted squats machine
After work the roommate and I headed to the gym. I got my swim on.
After dinner it was dessert time!!
Roommate and I are waiting survivor while we eat, then she pulls out leftover jerky from our hike.
And my baby is cuddling with me
As soon as this episode is over its off to bed for me!!!
How was your day?
Did you get in a workout?
Do you watch TV while you eat?
I know they say we aren’t supposed to and I agree, but being single there’s not much else to do while I eat.
