Yesterday was such a beautiful day here in middle Georgia! Upper 60’s and clear… perfect day for going for a run in my Skirt Sports Gym Girl Ultra skirt and a t-shirt. My nephew came over as soon as I was about to go out the door, so he joined me for a nice 1 mile run and 1/2 mile walk uphill back home. Ayden is 6 years old and was sooooo excited and proud that he ran a mile. He has decided that he wants to run some races this season. So we made a deal to do the one mile run at the Macon Mud Run together. It made my heart happy to hear how much he loved running with me.
Although he did mention that he needed faster shoes with jet packs built in.
Me too, Ayden, me too.
Sunday is also my food prep day. I like to prepare all of my breakfast, lunch, and snacks for the week. I have found that if I do not prepare and plan good food for the week, then I tend to choose items that are not as healthy. (You know like the house special at the Mexican restaurant….). This week I am having the following:
Oatmeal with egg whites & blueberries (M/W/F after heavy lifting)
Scrambled eggs with spinach (T/Th)
Chipotle burgers (made with 97% lean beef and chipotle sauce)
Mustard glazed baked chicken
Citrus Spiced Amaranth
chopped veggies w/ hummus
I also decided to try something new. I bought some tempeh and decided to stir fry it with edamame and broccoli. Tempeh is fermented soybeans in a cake form. Truth be told it doesn’t look appetizing, but it is actually pretty good.
