I've been running outside in the mornings lately instead of on the treadmill. For some reason, I've always felt like my early morning runs outside are harder than any other time of the day so I have preferred to run on a treadmill when I work out before work. Well, last week it was just too nice to not at least try to run outdoors. After the first morning, I was hooked and ended up doing them all outside. Looks like I have changed my tune about early morning outdoor runs!
|Friday's split times|
My splits are just terrible. I'm trying really hard to slow down at the beginning. I'm not dead by the end of my run, which means I can probably run farther if I have the time. I just need to figure out a reasonable pace!
I ate the most delicious meal last week. I made salsa chicken (look how little Ella is in that post! Tear) in the crock pot and put some on a warm sweet potato with a dollop of plain Chobani. So filling and so tasty! I'm back in my sweet potato phase, which means I'm pretty much eating one a day. Can you blame me? They are amazing and you can eat them in fry form without feeling guilty! Win.
I also made crispy parmesan garlic edamame which is seriously the best snack ever! I really have to watch myself because I could eat the whole thing in one sitting, it is THAT good. Tatum was trying to get in on the action but I wasn't sharing. You can buy frozen shelled edamame at Kroger (it's called mukimame) making this one of the easiest recipes on the planet. If you're a fan of cheese and edamame, jump on it.
I've been doing a good job sticking to my points and am down one pant size! Still have a long way to go but I'm heading in the right direction at least.
Have a great Monday!
