I woke up a complete bitch crank. I started my day completely frazzled for some reason but as the hours passed I decided that I am going to forget about my hate for Monday and make it a great day regardless!
I have been practicing clean eating the past few days. I say practice because I am still learning! I am more of a girl who will eat what is convenient aka processed foods. Don’t get me wrong, I do eat healthy but there is always room for improvement. I am trying to incorporate more real food into what I eat everyday and less desserts. Rather than having a dessert after every single meal, I am trying to take on the mind-set that it is a treat not a necessity.
After my farmers market trip on Friday I cooked up some quinoa that I have been stalling on making. I decided to make a cold quinoa salad with some of my vegetable goodies that I got. I suck and got no after pictures but it turned out pretty good!
It ended up being a mix of, well, everything!
Here is what went in:
3 cups quinoa
bunch of cherry tomatoes
diced red onion
1/2 package feta cheese
3 pieces of cut up grilled chicken
added some pepper, oregano and basil too.
I am no chef and a few people coughwigginscough thought it sounded like a nast combo but I think it came out pretty good! Full of veggies and protein and it tastes good. I win.
Along with more real food I have been trying to have at least 1 protein shake a day and tons of water. The protein shakes are good for me because not only could I use the extra protein but they keep me full for a long time.
I was thinking about my run Saturday …and how I fell It wasn’t the first time! In fact, I have a pretty good history of eating the ground. My most memorable fall was when I tripped over a manhole at a busy intersection. I fell, slid, rolled…all of it. Bloody knees, elbows and hands. I was so embarrassed that I jumped right up and started running like nothing happened. I had blood everyyyywhere. The friend I was running with could not stop laughing. We eventually made a pit stop at a McDonald’s so I could beg for a few band aids and clean up. I guess tired legs and uneven sidewalks are to blame? That’s why I try and stick to the shoulder rather than a sidewalk!
