One of my goals for this week is to try to maintain a semi-decent workout schedule. One week off wonâ€™t ruin my cardio endurance, but it will mess with my sanity â€“ I need my sweat time! It helps center me, gets me away from the computer, and reduces stress.
Thankfully, Jen and I had a running date. If we didnâ€™t, I really donâ€™t know if I wouldâ€™ve unglued my butt from my sweet see-through chair.
Our date was grand! It was fun to catch up with Jen, who just did an Olympic triathlon yesterday. She was sore, I was pooped, so we ran a 5K in 33:33 (exactly!) and called it a day (we had planned or 4 miles or so).
Sometimes, a friendly, no-stress run is just what a girl needs!
Pre-run snack was toast with jam:
Post-run dinner was prepared by the Husband. Heâ€™s been putting in a lot of extra kitchen time for the family since Iâ€™ve been so busy, and Iâ€™m so grateful!
An Amyâ€™s burrito (the rice and black bean one), some naan, a samosa, and a spinach salad.
Actually, my original dinner looked like this, and the lack of veggies really wasnâ€™t doing it for me. :)
So I replaced the rice (well, I gave it to the Husband) with a spinach and tomato salad. Simple swap! A girl needs her veggies, too!
Now Iâ€™m chatting with bestie Sarah on the phone! She just got a new poochie named Ladybird from the poundâ€¦ Isnâ€™t Lady the cutest?
Love new doggies! <3
Have a great night.
