So if any of you have stuck around after hearing my “Khloe” voice well, thanks. I’m sure all you dog owners have a special voice for your doggie(s) too!
I went to the women’s fitness celebration expo that was going on this weekend and a specialty bakery was selling cupcakes for $1.
I also got a lot of free stuff like tasty samples, chocolate milk, string cheese and entered lots of giveaways *fingers crossed* I never win anything though, so I am not holding my breath.
I’m usually not a pancake girl in the mornings because I think they too long, but I really had a hankering for them so I used a whole wheat honey mix plus mashed banana and real maple syrup.
More sandwiches this week!
Turkey, smashed avocado, tomato, spinach and sprouts! I love sprouts but sometimes it takes some conscious effort to use them all before they get… slimy. I packed this cute english muffin full of them. Despite the size of this little guy… it packed a serious punch.
Look at me and my vegetarian salad:
Everything but the kitchen sink: black beans, avocado, tomatos (that were mushy and I ended up picking most of them out, spinach, sunflower seeds, boiled egg, mushrooms, goldfish crackers… did I leave anything out? I wished I had beets on hand, darn.
Confession: I did jack squat in the workout department this week. I have been feeling really fatigued and keep getting headaches about bedtime. I don’t know if it’s low iron/protein, sugar detox or stress about school.
Either way, I decided to listen to my body and lay low and get some extra sleep this week. At first I thought, man! I totally failed my goals this month. But then I realized that it’s better to slow down than get run down. Sometimes our bodies just need a little R&R.
I did however
run kick butt at the 5k for the Women’s Fitness celebration. We sprinted the last oh, quarter of the run and it was one of the most exhilarating sprints I’ve done in a long time. Such a blast!
It great sprinting to the finish line. I really dug deep, because I like to finish strong. We both finished at 36:17 which is about average for me. I don’t care that I’m not incredibly fast, I only compete with
p.s. like my sweet new under armour hat? I hate, hate, HATE running in sunglasses and this had was really lightweight and I didn’t notice it at all while I was running.
If my fatigue does have to do with school stress, at it’s paying off! I’ve been studying my butt off and I got a 90% on my lab exam! Woo!
Saturday night was Bronco Night!
