Now that I am not training as hard as I have been, I need to be careful that I am not eating like I am running my face off. My goal is to eat clean but still be able to enjoy myself. read: a cupcake here and there won’t kill me
I am being proactive and I made hard-boiled eggs and a big salad to bring for lunch so I have no excuses.
I am also trying to eat more nutritious snacks. Instead of 12423 pretzels, only 5 with some tomato and salt instead.
Yesterday I didn’t swim like I anticipated. The pool just sounded so….wet. And I was so dry. So instead I went for a long, fast walk. It helped loosen me up a lot. I made sure to foam roll too. It was soooo painful, especially on my calves, but I am glad I did it!
This morning I hopped on the elliptical for 25 minutes and my legs are feeling better. I can still feel the soreness but I am already walking better than yesterday 🙂
To continue my clean eating I made dinner at home. We have been going out to eat way too much lately so I am hoping to cut back on that. Dinner was quinoa, chicken, spinach and cheddar cheese. Throw some garlic powder in and bake it for 15 minutes. Boom delish.
The only bad thing about eating in? I manage to make every.single.dish dirty when I cook.
Question for you: I have been sleeping pretty crappy. I go to bed and I am tired but I toss and turn and it takes forever to fall asleep. When I do fall asleep I can only stay asleep for a couple of hours then I am up and down all night. last night I may have even woken myself from asking J a question in my sleep. I am completely restless! The thing is though….during the day I am not tired, I just don’t feel rested.
is this my mind just running on overdrive or is it from my training…or neither?
Has this ever happened to you?
