Keep It Moving

It’s been two months since my last post, and the only excuse I have is that the blog has dropped rank on my priority list. Between work, travel, exercising, training, and trying to have a social life, I have trouble making the time to sit down and write. I am actively trying to change that, so I’ve decided to write a training or fundraising post once a week and a food-related post once a week. Let’s see how it goes, shall we?

When it comes to training, I’ve been working out hard and regularly. I am running twice a week (that will increase soon), strength training once a week, and practicing yoga two to three times per week. A new barre3 studio opened in the neighborhood, so I’ll incorporate that into my routine at least twice a week. My first class in the new studio is tomorrow and my body will be thrilled considering I kicked its ass today on a 4-mile hill run.

Own those hills!

With Jay-Z pumping in my ears, I made those hills my beeyotches!

I’m still on my whole foods diet and am enjoying “cheat” snacks or meals once a week. Cutting out alcohol and processed foods hasn’t been incredibly challenging. What’s been challenging is the amount of time devoted to meal planning and food prep. I’ve already got my breakfast cooked and portioned out for the week. Here’s one of my typical meals. I add one hard-boiled egg for protein. Total Calorie count is 305 with the egg and 227 without. I’ll usually have a 1/3 cup oatmeal 2 hours before or after I eat this, too. That adds an extra 97-100 Calories, for those of you counting.

Time for breakfast! 1 cup roasted broccoli, 1/2 cup roasted asparagus, 1/2 cup black beans, and 1/2 cup roasted sweet potatoes.

If you have healthy meal ideas or tried-and-true recipes, I’d love to hear them. Variety is the spice of life!

I must be going. It’s time for lunch and to walk the dog. Matty Boy’s been staring at me with those big, brown eyes since I sat down to write. I guess he needs his exercise too.

"Can we go now, mom?"

“Can we go now, mom?”
