This week’s long run was the best I’ve felt yet. It was encouraging to feel stronger and know that the training is paying off! It’s also the first time I’ve hit 45 miles since baby J was born, and I didn’t feel wiped out after the 18 miler. My legs are adjusting back to marathon mode.
I also think the vitamins I’m taking lately have improved my energy. I’ve been doing a lot of research on how so many supplements do not contain what they claim to, or are simply not effective (such as probiotics that are destroyed in the stomach acid before making it to your intestines.) So I’ve been taking a probiotic, Omega 3, Vitamin D and multi-Vitamin that are thoroughly tested and backed with research and I can feel the difference. Maybe it’s in my head? But regardless, I’m feeling good!
This week’s meal plan:
Sunday: Whole roast chicken + roasted potatoes, carrots, and beets
Monday: Chicken Enchiladas with leftover chicken
Thursday: Butternut Squash Chickpea Curry
Friday: Roasted vegetable omelets with feta
Schools were off Friday and again tomorrow, so my parents are coming for the day to hang out tomorrow… can’t wait!
Also, for those of you that love learning holistic health info and are wanting to learn the best way to eat for your body and how to implement small changes, I have two spots left in a 3 month group program that begins in March. I’d love to have you join us!
