How is everyone this Wednesday?? I am doing great, especially because the weather here has been a cool 70 degrees, I actually crave recess duty!! This weekend, I picked up some long lost Oat Bran. I used to eat this all the time for breakfast, and it has been forever since I have eaten it. I forgot how good it is!! This morning I mixed mine up with pb, chopped apples and peanut butter protein powder. I love how thick it comes out :) Perfect way to start my day!!
Lunch and dinner consisted of my new fav, Chicken Sausages from Costco. Also, some pita bread topped with melted cheese, garlic powder and ketchup. I have yet to find something that ketchup does not belong on.
My first sausage creation for lunch today consisted of cut up sausage, tomatoes, broccoli, and zucchini topped with cottage cheese and Dijon mustard.
Dinner was cut up sausage, salad mix with squash and tomatoes drenched in low fat ranch dressing.
I must admit, I am not really looking forward to the weekend. Craig leaves for a bachelor party in Vegas this weekend :( So it is just me and the little Cooper. I do have a family reunion to attend on Saturday, so I won't be lonely...but I favor weekends with Craig. It is a chance for him and I to lay around and catch up with each other. During the week it is so hard to do things together, we are both tired from the long work day and I usually have papers to grade or secretly blog lol. So it will be a weekend with family, Cooper but no Craig.
On the workout front, I have considered training for a 10k. I must admit guys, I am SCARED TO DEATH of running outside again and in fact have stuck with the treadmill since early July. My tendon still gets sore at the end of the day and can be a little stiff when I wake up in the morning, but once I get moving it is fine. I have said it before, I love 10ks because they allow me to fit all my other fun fitness activities in as well and not focus so much on just running. I need some thoughts/opinions on if I should do this 10k. The race date would be 8 weeks out from this Saturday. Is it too soon to start running again?

  1. gahhhh your lunch looks sooooooo good.

    As far as the running goes... I would just be really careful. I mean, you said it yourself, you're still getting pain... not a super awesome sign. Running on pain just equals more pain. :/

    I want sausage now. Life is unfair. D:
