Last Week’s Food and Fitness

Hey gang!  Did anyone else have a case of the Mondays today?  My little guy Tadd did.

Mondays, for me at least, mark the very beginning of the week. Not Sunday. Monday is the day my new training and meal plan kicks in.  When I develop training plans for my clients, the first day listed is always Monday. Here is what last week looked like for me:

Monday- Sooo right now I’m not training for anything (for shame!!) so I have been sticking to 3-4 miles during the week. Monday was an easy 4 mile loop, tackling a huge hill from the start. How huge you ask? So huge I cannot talk while running up it. Sucks the wind right out of me!

Tuesday- A quick weight lifting routine from “Quick Strength Training for Runners“. I am almost done with the full 8 week program and plan to do a review.

Wednesday- 4 mile loop…with the hill at the end so it’s a downhill haha.

Thursday- Easy 3 miles. Probably should have ran more because that night I ate entirely too much at Woodberry Kitchen.

Friday- REST DAY!! Another meal out with the family at a local Chinese restaurant, Sonny Lee’s. So. freakin’. Good.

Saturday- Because of the heavy rain we were having here in MD, I opted to take RPM45, a spin class, at Brick Bodies. It was a good sweat session, even though in my opinion nothing gets the heart pumping like running. I guess I didn’t have enough salt in my diet because after class I was craving a salty snack so badly!  So I opted for brie and crackers. Fancy!

And I guess that wasn’t enough, because for dinner later I had pizza from Whole Foods. I guess since it’s from Whole Foods it’s healthy, right?

Sunday- I ran a glorious 6.38 miles and felt like I was flying! I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day, even the fur moms! I gave a whole new definition to “tummy time” with our cat Liger. Whenever I lay down on the couch, he jumps right up and lays on my belly haha.

So tell me, did you have a good week in fitness and food last week? Enjoy the great week ahead!
