Here's a few pics that I managed to capture on my phone:
I was up early yesterday and decided to head out for a quick run before it got too hot. I was out the door by about 8:45 a.m. and went for a 30 minute run/walk (1 min run, 1 min walk, repeat 12 times). Let me tell ya, it was steamy! I was okay while running (which felt great by the way!) but when I finished and got home, the sweat just poured outta me. My face was red and my shirt was soaked --- now that's the way I like to end a workout --- I was a hot, schweaty, calorie-burning mess! So far my right knee feels good. I'm hoping I can start adding a couple runs per week into my workout schedule because my friends and I are hoping to do a Halloween-themed run in a few weeks where we can wear costumes. I believe it's a 5K and I'd like to be able to run it if my body will let me.
Like I promised, I also did some meal planning and workout planning this weekend ---- I am determined for life to be back to normal this week.
Planning = Success
Here's a peek at this week's plan:
- Breakfasts: protein pancakes, slow cooker steel cut oats, egg white scrambles
- Lunches - zucchini cheddar egg muffins, salads, leftovers, Greek yogourt with fruit, cottage cheese
- Dinners: garden veggie chili, grilled apple & cheese sandwiches with side salad, roasted beet soup, burgers (meat for D & bean for moi) with homemade fries, BBQ ('shrooms for me & steak/shrimp for D)with taters & veggies, leftovers once, eat out once
Sunday - 30 minute run/walk
Monday - rest
Tuesday - 30 minute run/walk
Wednesday - shoulders with 30 minute cardio at gym
Thursday - back/biceps with 20 minute cardio or a weights/cardio class mix at the gym
Friday - rest
Saturday - kundalini yoga
