Hope you’re having a good weekend! I’m happy to report that I survived my first post-baby 5k… barely. It was nearly 80 degrees! But it felt good to push myself again and now I have a good idea where my speed is at and can only improve from here. More on the race results tomorrow!
We also had my 4 yo’s soccer game and a birthday party yesterday, so it was a full day. I’m crossing my fingers for a whole family nap time today!
Here’s the usual workout recap and meal plan:
Sunday: 30 minute strength workout
Monday: 6 mile run (in 51 minutes)
Tuesday: 45 minute elliptical/strength combo
Wednesday: 5 mile easy run (8:45 pace)
Thursday: taught 1 hour spin class
Saturday: 2.5 mile warm up + 5k race
Here’s our meal plan:
Sunday: Scrambled eggs and smoothies
Monday: Butternut Squash Chickpea Curry
Tuesday: Pork Tenderloin + Spicy Apple and Chickpea Salad
Wednesday: Morrocan Chicken Tagine
Thursday: Cilantro Lime Fish Tacos
Friday: Cauliflower Crust Pizza (again, because it’s so good!)
And check out some of these delicious fall ideas:
- Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes (gluten free)
- Dark Chocolate Date Biscotti (sugar free)
- Homemade Chai Tea Latte
- Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte –> so much healthier than Starbucks version!
Now I just need a personal chef to make all these lattes and treats for me… 🙂
