Back to C25k!

Jesse and I decided to do a local 10k in November. I've wanted to do it for years but one thing after another happened and I never got to :( So... I'm starting C25k again as a starting point :)

I did my first workout today! My left ankle started bothering me during the first running interval, and by the third, my hip was hurting :( I finished the workout and called my chiro's office before leaving the gym. I could tell the pain was from being out of alignment. They were able to see me immediately. I'm sore but I can tell he fixed me :) I'm proud that I stuck with the workout even though it was uncomfortable! And actually, the endorphins must've kicked in because by interval 5, I wasn't hurting anymore :)

Despite being uncomfortable, I finished 1.3 miles! My backside was sore during the last bits of the running intervals but not bad.

I'm actually looking forward to my next workout! Planning on it being Wednesday...

Meals Lately

Here's what a "typical" day's food looks like:

Organic Greek yogurt w/blueberries (single serving size) mixed with heavy cream
1 Colby-Jack cheese snack

2.5-3 oz cooked meat
1/2 c. (cooked) carb (usually brown rice)
2 c. cooked veggies
Usually mixed as a casserole, with cream, frequently with cheese ;)

This is our smaller meal, so it varies. Salad, tuna/chicken salad with crackers, small plate of leftovers, small tortilla with cheese, cottage cheese with peaches, etc. I cook scrambled eggs once or twice a week for the guys.

Dessert after supper:
1 Ghirardelli chocolate square
Small bowl of unsweetened peanut butter with bittersweet chocolate chips

Sunday mornings (before church):
Chicken apple sausage
Smoked sausage, oatmeal with bananas
Homemade breakfast sausage, hash browns

Sundays are my free day for food. I don't always eat veggies, and sometimes I eat more carbs.

Every day:
1/2-1 c. strong coffee with stevia and heavy cream, sipped throughout the day

Sometimes simple is best ;)

Heat OO over medium-high heat. Add veggies and cook to desired tenderness. Remove from pan. Add more OO, seasonings, and chicken. Cook until chicken is done. Remove from pan. Add green beans to pan. Stir to coat. Add everything back to pan and mix well.
