Saturday I completed 3 miles without stopping, the longest run I have done yet. I’m exited because there is still about three weeks until the Sergeant Preston Run and I have already completed the distance of my first goal, a 5k. Now I am trying to decide if I should still run the 5k or try for a higher goal. Saturday my average pace was 9:24 mi\min. I want to be able to run a 10k soon but I would have to double my distance in the next 3 weeks. I think its possible because I love to run which helps and I don’t have trouble running. So I am going to try it. If I can’t run a 10k by race day then I will stick to the 5k but I am going to attempt it. I need to find better running shoes because I haven’t been much of a runner and I am using regular tennis shoes right now. The race is new years day so I might just get some for Christmas :). This will be my very first race and I am super exited!
This morning was rushed since I had to leave for school but I still managed to assemble a healthy breakfast. I threw some frozen blueberries and almond milk and half a banana in the blender to make a blueberry smoothie and sipped on this while I prepared a bowl of microwavable peanut butter oatmeal. Its super simple and perfect for busy mornings because it only takes about 3 minutes. Just put a half cup of oatmeal and a half cup of water in a bowl and microwave for about two minutes. Stir in truvia or other sweetener and add as much peanut butter as you would like. I also added chocolate chips to mine! Who says you can’t a nutritious breakfast in 5 minutes?
Today’s lunch was protein packed! I had a turkey wrap on a flat out my new favorite!
These things are GOOD! Not to mention one wrap has 9 grams of protein, 9 grams of fiber and only 90 calories. I put vegetarian turkey, spinach, lettuce and mustard on mine. I didn’t get a picture of the actual thing, but trust me they are awesome! On the side I had carrots and hummus and Julie’s flourless peanut butter cookies. I added chocolate chips to mine and they turned out great!
Somehow only one chocolate chip made it into this cookie…
I got home from school and grabbed a greek yogurt granola bar from the cupboard and did Jillian Micheals Ripped in 30 level three. I like the 20 minute workout especially on week days. Once I was finished I enjoyed a small golden delicious apple.
