Wednesday already!? I feel like I just did I WIAW post! I’m linking up with Jenn to show you what I ate…all day Tuesday.

First let’s start with the workout because that came before any food – I headed out for day 2 of my 1/2 marathon training plan and tackled 3 miles. Recently every single time I’ve run I get a horrible pain in my hip flexor. For the rest of the day it throbs and I have to semi-limp (I’m also a tad bit dramatic) and it is extremely uncomfortable. Any ideas from you runners??

Breakfast: Protein Shake from the gym – Banana Protein, Crunchy Peanut Butter, Soy Milk, Ice & Fat-burner supplement

Speaking of peanut butter – I posted some useful information on my FB yesterday – Time to stock up PB lovers!

Lunch: Whole Wheat Tortilla w/  bbq sauce, caramelized onions, leftover chicken & mozzarella cheese

Snack: Popcorn

Dinner: Zucchini noodles w/ meatless meatballs, marinara and nutritional  yeast. I also baked zucchini sticks with marinara (egg whites & whole wheat panko)

Dessert: S’mores bowl – graham cracker sheet, marshmallows, dark chocolate chips – Microwave for 20 seconds

If you can’t have the real thing, this will satisfy your craving!

The weather is starting to cool down so I wore this

Long sleeve shirt with lace back: Forever 21

Ripped Jeans: Citizens of Humanity

Tan Boots: Nordstrom

Necklace: So old I can’t remember but probably Forever 21

Short hair: Unfortunately, me.

Adam kept telling me my hair was getting too long (pretty sure he was annoyed it was everywhere in the house) so I decided to cut my hair.. Well i made a quick decision and just said cut 5 1/2 inches off. WHY? I always do this and get mad at myself.. I like long hair because my hair is thick and looks like a poof when its short…so long story short I will be growing it out, again.

QUESTIONS: Have you ever regretted a haircut?

1/2 Marathon Training

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted about a workout. Why? Well, to be honest I haven’t worked out like I used to. I’ve been ranging 0-1 workouts a week, eek! My exercise has been walking a total of 2 miles to and from work everyday (lame). By the time I get home from work I just don’t feel like working out… So, I’ve decided to set up a plan. I will get up every morning and do my workouts first thing so I have no excuse at the end of the day! I need to start training for the princess 1/2 marathon or I’ll be walking the 13.1 miles…and that’s no fun to watch.

Workout Plan: 6 days a week – 5:45 am M-F. 7am on Saturdays

  • M: Bootcamp Class and 20 minutes on elliptical
  • Tu: 3 mile run (Oct) 4 mile run (Nov) 5 mile Run (Dec-Feb)
  • W: Spinning and Leg workout
  • Th: 3 mile run (Oct) 4 mile run (Nov) 5 mile Run (Dec-Feb)
  • F:  Spinning and Arm workout
  • Sa: Long run (Increasing mileage by 1 mile a week)
  • Su: Off + Stretching

I’m hoping this plan holds me accountable!

Dinner: With all of the leftover chicken I decided to make a quesadilla… I sautéed some onions and placed them on a whole wheat tortilla with white chicken and cheddar cheese and pan-fried them with some olive oil spray. Dipped in greek yogurt of course.. I also had a side of green beans – I could eat pounds of these!

Now onto that run…

QUESTIONS: Have you ever trained for a 1/2 marathon? What was your plan like?
