Hey guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! I had a fairly busy weekend in Kingston/Cornwall.
My 5km race on Saturday morning was COLD. We bundled up and heading to the race around 9am, start time was 10am. We parked the car in the parking lot behind the elementary school where the sign in was but as we were walking over we all got soaked in the massive hidden puddles on the trail to the school. So we had to run the race with wet feet! Luckily I didn’t really notice it while I was running. I finished in 29:33 which I am happy with. I wanted to finish in 28 min but the course was hilly and I am just happy I finished pain free and with no walking.
[My knee feels great today… progress:)]
Last week Recap
I didn’t make it to any classes last week at the gym which is unfortunate because I really enjoy them. I did a lot of cardio last week to get ready for my 5km. This week I am back into the classes and weights!
After some thinking and comments from you guys, I decided to incorporate carbs into my diet last week. I only ate whole grain, good, carbs, and I was happy with my decision. Eliminating carbs wasn’t the solution to my problems. I have some researching to do to find proper ways to fuel myself and make sure I am getting all the nutrients and energy I need.
Monday: 35 min run, 20 min eliptical
Tuesday: Body Shred class, Awesome Abs Class
Wednesday: 5km, Leg circuit
Thursday: Hatha Yoga
Saturday: 5km, Arm/Back circuit
Meal Plan (dinners)
Monday: Stuffed Sweet Potato
Tuesday: Baked tofu and butternut squash
Wednesday: Spinach Salad with vegan sausage
Thursday: Pita with lots of veggies and hummus
Friday: Out for dinner with mom and sister
Saturday: TBD – making dinner for mom and sister
Sunday: Spaghetti and vegan ‘meatballs’
Goal – My goal this week is to make all of my meals at home. Last week I bought my lunch two times and went out for dinner twice, which is really unusual for me. Normally I pack a lunch every day except Friday [when I treat myself to a salad or soup from Freshii or Urban Herbivore] but last week felt so crazy and I just didn’t feel/make time for packing or preparing lunch/dinner. So this week I am making my lunch every day (even Friday) and I am only going to go out for dinner when my mom and sister come to visit. Not only will this save me $$$ but it is way healthier as well!
What are your goals for this week?
Do you eat out often?
