welp, i’m still training for a 10k.
after the ice/snow storm hit last week and me almost getting sick (yay! still haven’t been sick this season!) my training has been slow coming. yesterday, i restarted week 4 (even though i’ve already done it) because i missed an entire week! i have to admit…it was tough! i only jogged for a total of 20 minutes, but my body was not quite ready after a long break. lesson learned: don’t take that much time off! hopefully, i can train around our snow this week (it’s supposed to snow tomorrow and then warm up again for the weekend).
as far as weight loss – i’m kind of stuck in a winter slump (but, i haven’t gained!). i eat really great during the week, but the weekends i really slack off. the cold just zaps my motivation and energy. what has helped is my goal to stay on budget! it helps remind me that i need to cook more often and eat out less. it’s worked so far! we try and eat raw during the day and then a somewhat healthy meal for dinner. i will usually have a HUGE salad with a side of the entree while dane does the opposite. so, even at dinner, i try to make 2/3 of my meal greens or some kind of veggie.
here, i’ll share a new recipe! we had this last night…i doubled it and we’ll be eating it tonight, too!
