Meal Plan and Other News

Sunday, April 07, 2013

Other news first:
I haven't run since last Monday. I'm not sure what my problem is. I just don't want to! I have been doing exercise videos, so I am exercising, but not running. Which is bad because my half marathon is next Sunday! I'm not sure why I'm deliberately sabotaging myself here. We're doing a 12 miler tomorrow after work though. Last long run before the race. I have also been over my calories all but one day for the past 3 weeks. I'm way out of control for some reason.

Meal Plan:

I would like to note that this is my first meal plan in like a month. Small steps...

Monday: Honey lime chicken skewers with siracha brussels sprouts

Tuesday: Grilled tofu and grilled asparagus

Wednesday: Avocado chicken salad. on a salad

Thursday: not sure

Friday: going to obx, so eating something when we get there. My MIL is going to be out of town, so it may be pizza. My FIL can barely make toast.

    Well, we were out of propane for the grill so we decided to make the avocado chicken salad for dinner last night. OH MY GOSH. I think I found my new favorite food. I've never had "regular" chicken salad because I have a mental block against all things mayonnaise, but this chicken salad is honestly so awesome! We added like 3T of salsa and sauteed the onion mixed with chopped celery for a few minutes on the stove to they wouldn't be crunchy. J also mixed in some chopped pickles. So yummy and so refreshing on a hot day like yesterday. All of you should try it out.

    Hope you get back on track. I am sure you will still do well in the Half! Maybe this break is what your body needs!

    Thanks for the support! I'll definitely follow your advice and do some 3 milers this week before we leave for the beach.

    If I were in your shoes I'd do the long run, but not go crazy. Maybe do a little speed-work Tuesday. After that I'd just do a couple easy 5Ks with one on Saturday morning. That is in fact what I did last week. Take a look at my SparkBlog from yesterday for some insight and maybe inspiration.

The most important thing is that you enjoy your race Sunday and come away injury free.
