In mid February I posted about needing a mental health day and also mentioned that I am a pretty lousy sleeper. Well Monday the same type of situation happened but instead it was a day of headaches. I NEVER get headaches, when I do I am a total baby and turn into a non functioning human being. I was taking IB Profin all day at work but it only cleared my headache for an hour at a time. When 6:00pm rolled around and I had just taken my 3rd super large dose of IB Profin I retreated to my bedroom. I fell asleep at 6:30pm and minus a few interruptions to let my soccer team know I wasn’t coming to our game, I slept until 6am. Who does that?!? I blame it on racing over the weekend and my lack of sleep catching up to me. I like having this blog because I was able to go back to the last time this happen and realize it was only 2 months ago, I thought that my “crash and burn” days happened a little farther apart to be honest, I will keep an eye on it though.
Tuesday I woke up feeling great and started out my day with the usual breakfast of eggs, avocado, and sweet potato. At this point I have been eating the same thing for breakfast since approximately November. You would think it would get old, but no. I decided that since I skipped soccer on Monday I would add a run to Tuesday’s work out. I did 3 miles with out headphones and it was an OK run. My legs felt super heavy and it was over 80 degrees so it was a nice smack in the face that summer was here. The arch on my right foot was still bothering me, which is honestly quite worrisome because I have a long trail run on Sunday and the Tough Mudder next Saturday. My foot needs to get better ASAP!!! After running I made sure to stretch and then hit the weights. I did a great core and upper body strength work out that you can check out here.
Eats lately have been a little lighter than the crock pot creations I made over the winter. Below is a mix of kale, green pepper, chia seeds, pistachios, soy sauce meatballs, and a simple EVOO and vinegar dressing.For in case you were not aware of all the great benefits of kale check out this nifty little chart I found.Tuesday ended with a super simple dinner of chicken, veggies, and avocado. In the spirit of celebrating the seasonal temperatures we turned Sasha’s walk into a Pink Berry trip!Look how good she is! Just laying down and letting us eat! Don’t mind our ghostly pale legs, they haven’t seen sunshine in ages. I have already started camping out on my rooftop to try and get my summer brown back. Slow and steady!
