Support when it counts

It is cold and raining, but I’m about to go on a run with my little running group. This is when support like that counts! I’m not going to lie, I feel pretty hardcore even attempting this 😉 We’ll see if this changes once I actually get wet, hehe.

Yesterday was another great day of eats. I am being very mindful, and it makes me happy! So far, so good. Let’s see how I did…

BREAKFAST

1 Ezekiel english muffin with crunchy Barney Butter, warmed up frozen mixed berries + a dollop of nonfat yogurt

I love creamy yogurt over warm berries and BB! Absolutely delicious :)

PRE-WORKOUT SNACK

Not bad (nothing earth shattering either) – a solid granola bar with no junk ingredients. Sounds good.

My workout was a spin class, followed by 5 minutes of jump rope (just for a little somthin’ somthin’ extra 😉 ). I definitely felt the fact that it’s been over a week since my last spinning class. I was kind of dying in there… looking forward to getting back into it :)

LUNCH

Leftover pasta with shrimp

Still delicious! Is that a hair in there?!!

I think that’s the cheese melting… let’s hope so! 😀

MID-AFTERNOON SNACKS

Light organic string cheese for some protein + fat

And later, a brownie with cherries

Btw, to make the brownies, I used TJ’s brownies truffle mix, subbing 4oz of nonfat yogurt for 1 stick of butter + adding dried cherries. There are huge chocolate chips in there, so the brownies are crazy indulgent tasting. No need for butter for sure! 😀

DINNER

2 tacos with tofu, avocado, hummus and roasted red peppers

+ another brownie (see pic above) for good measure 😉

All right, I’m off to get wetttttt. See you later, alligators! :mrgreen:

  • Having a group definitely makes it easier to get motivated for a difficult workout. I’d usually sit out a run if it’s raining but knowing people are depending on me makes all the difference. 😀

  • I am so behind on your blog. I’m so sorry. I hope we can still be friends 😉

    As usual all this food looks fantastic. I think of all the food bloggers, I have a similar eating style/tastes to you. All of your food always looks like stuff I would like to eat!

    Erin – definitely! I totally was secretly hoping they’ll all cancel last minute, but at the end was so happy I went!! :)

    Emily – thanks so much! It was definitely a very yummy day 😉 Out of curiosity, how did find my blog?

    Katie – they are totally my favorite. They are really “meaty” (i.e. wholesome) and I really love that about them. Whole grains at their best 😀

    Caroline – yes, we all ran in that mess outside. Definitely lots of puddles and we were all completely soaking wet, but sooooo worth it! :)

    Meghan – I’m so glad you came out. Hope you join us again soon… I want to hear more about your marathon and travel experiences!! :mrgreen:

    Anne – I think I would be upset if it was raining this bad during a race, but on a random day, no biggie when a bunch of friends join you :) The breakfast was definitely awesome :)

    Lara – we can still be friends 😆

  • I hate running in the rain, but I maybe running in it tomorrow :/ I am thinking of a full marathon, but a nervous because of a lack of consistant training support.

    That pasta looks delish!

  • I can barely run inside- you are such a badass for running in the rain! Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  • You all are hard core! I though about you while I did my 7 miles on the warm, dry treadmill! Next time for sure!
