Saturday/Sunday Eats

I wish I could say I stayed right within my point allowance after the weekend, but I did not. I do have to say, I came the closest I have the past couple of months so not bad, right? I think this had something to do with knowing I would have to post it here? I think it’s worth another week to do so and help keep me on track. Hey, if it helps, why not? Oh and I know it can be a bit boring so I think I’ll go ahead and post Saturday and Sunday towards the bottom so you can see where a few, ahem, errors were made.

  • Mon – Strength Done
  • Tues – Run 3m Yes!
  • Wed – Run 5m Not so much
  • Thurs – Run 3m & Strength Guess again
  • Fri – Rest I ran on rest day, that’s good right? Okay it was 1.5 miles. 
  • Sat – Run 6m 4m
  • Sun – Crosstraining Rest instead

I’m feeling okay, but I’m seeing a trend in my training where I’m not exactly following the plan. Not that things have to be exact all the time, but they should be closer than this. I am still having a bit of heel pain and need to remind myself to be a balanced runner. I really need to be strength training and not all my cardio should be running. The end. Let’s go for it this week, even have a holiday in the middle of the week, No Excuses!
  • Mon – Run 3m
  • Tues – Cardio & Strength
  • Wed – Run 6m
  • Thurs – Run 3m & Strength
  • Fri – Rest
  • Sat – Run 11m
  • Sun – Crosstraining or Rest

Also just had that thought I keep pushing to the back of my head about that little New Year’s Resolution I made where I would run 1,000 miles this year. Oooof. I’ll be providing an update on these since we are halfway through the year, but let’s just say I need to average closer to 29 miles per week going forward to meet that one. Ouch.

What is your typical grocery list method? Or do you not have one? And if you don’t, I just don’t understand. Control freak, I know.My usual method is to try out some new recipes I may have come across in my ridiculous amount of magazine subscriptions or a recipe I saw recently on a blog I follow. This particular one that Ben and I had for dinner tonight, was from Joy the Baker. Such a great summer dish.

BLT Corn Salad Wraps

I bought a head of hydroponic Boston lettuce for the wrap portion. A) have you ever bought one of these? and B) Have you checked out the roots that come along with it? Craziness! Should have taken a picture, would have made more sense.
