So this morning Lizzie sent me this article: http://www.boston.com/sports/other_sports/running/articles/2009/07/07/runners_keep_your_splits_to_yourself/ which was interesting. I think blogging helps me to get motivated and for some extra encouragement! What do you think?
BAKE SALE AHEAD!
I'm getting things together for the bake sale coming up in 2 weeks - I'm super excited! Hope you will tell your friends to come visit my site on July 20th! Last call for bakers/donators!! You don't have to bake something to donate! You can put together your favorite things, or running things, or anything fun! So far I have mainly cookies, cupcakes, granola, & granola bars, and a few non food items!
RUNNING & SWIMMING
Today I did a tempo run in the morning, 7 miles w/ 5 miles tempo pace. Then my sister wanted to swim in the afternoon. We ended up doing our own tri. I didn't feel like swimming the whole time or running the whole time either. So we swam 1000 yds, biked for 15 minutes and ran for 15 minutes. That ended up being 3.25 miles biked and 1.65 ran. The bike was better, I used a different one and with my sister there to talk to, the 15 min flew by. Now I just want to find a cheap try to start with!
Teri at Amazing Grass sent me all kinds of amazing stuff to try and I can't wait to try it out and tell you about it! I've tried an amazing meal and one other packet so far, and a bar. They are good! I think I am most excited for the fun cup!
I'm using fitday.com for some calorie counting. It gets tedious but I did it today and yesterday. It makes me more aware, so we'll see how it goes. I made a huge thing of veggies and baked them in the oven for this week again. There are so many things going on (eggplant, carrots, sweet potatoes, broccoli, zucchini, ... it is kind of annoying to put into fitday). It is delicious! Last night's dinner was barley with all of the veggies. Have you ever eaten more and lost weight? When I plug in my info for cals needed, most sites + nutritionist give me a whopping number of cals -alot more than I am eating. Thoughts?
WHERE ARE YOU PROTEIN?
I've been cutting out dairy because I was having major issues! But now, being a vegetarian, my PROTEIN is low! I've been limiting soy also, but how now do I get protein???
So I found this site where you can input in your recipe and break it down to figure out the nutrition facts!! http://www.nutritiondata.com/ AWESOME!! Here's an example:
And last.. I forgot a dentist appt today. I just totally forgot about it. I'm becoming my mom. AHh
