Needing some Balance...

Things at work have gotten insane!! I can barely keep up. I had planned a 3.5 mile run today during work and was unable to make it out. In fact, I haven't run yet this week. Usually I have in about 6 miles by Wednesday. I have done 2 yoga sessions, however, so I am keeping up on that. In order to make my 10 miles I need to catch up by running for the next 4 days! I think I can do it as long as I vary the intensity of the runs...I normally take a day off between runs, but since I only go for 30-40 minutes at a time, I think its ok to go 4 days in a row, right??!! I left my outdoor running gear at work, so if I can squeeze one in tomorrow or Friday, I will be prepared!

I have been keeping my food in check this week! I've had a green monster for breakfast, cup of kashi or fiber one for a mid-morning snack, gigantic salad for lunch, fruit and yogurt for the afternoon snack and for dinner:

Monday - Ravioli with olive oil drizzle and caesar salad
Tuesday - Homemade burger with caramelized onions and steamed carrots
Wednesday - Seared tuna with mushroom couscous and steamed broccolini (fav for the week!)

Normally I would have had garlic bread with Monday's meal, oven fries with Tuesdays and wine with Wednesday. I would say Success! for not adding those extras. I've also had a small piece of chocolate for dessert each to satisfy the sweet tooth! Don't ask me how I limit myself to one Lindt truffle...those things are AMAZING!


  1. Looks like you are doing a great job with your choices :-) I understand the craziness that you feel, I am in the same situation right now! Good luck on your mileage. Just listen to your body :-)

  2. I hope things slow down for you soon! Good job making the best of it though.

  3. I feel you on the craziness! I have been a little MIA this week. Good job on your good eats. Sounds delish!
