Finally Back to Normal

For the past few weeks, I’ve been b-u-s-y. I’d say I can’t complain, because I love to stay moving, but unfortunately my workout routine has been severely effected. Between work and my series of dental procedures, I’ve had virtually no time to run, elliptical or any other type of physical activity. I know, I know; boo-hoo. So now that everything has calmed down, here is what I hope to accomplish over the next few weeks.

  1. Run 1-3 times per week.
  2. Complete the **30-day challenge.
  3. Clean up my diet by cutting back on starches and ramping up the veggies.

So far, I’ve managed to squeeze in two 3 mile runs last week, but filled my diet with sugary granola bars and way too much ice cream. The cure for this? Sunday Funday must be eliminated. Instead, I will now allow myself 3 ‘bad’ meals a week, so I can better control them. This may seem crazy, but I’ve found that if I allow myself to splurge a few times a week versus all at once, I’ll find more excuses to skip that piece of cake. When I first tried this, I would save all of my fun meals for the weekend and would usually push them back to Sunday. Thus, Sunday Funday was born. However, now, I’m realizing that the best course of action is to limit myself to only one of these fun meals per day. We’ll see how it goes!

Tonight, I decided to celebrate the end of Sunday Funday with Alexia Saute Sweets. This yummy side of sweet potatoes, sweet corn, black beans, red bell pepper, and onions is ‘blended in chipotle-infused oil and finished with chipotle infused 100% olive oil.’ I also sauteed some spinach with onions, garlic and topped it with a pinch of mozzarella cheese. So good. Leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

 

Want to try out the 30-Day Challenge with me? Well here is the great little workout I discovered on, none other than, Pinterest!

My Healthy Tip of the Day: Challenge yourself and try this workout with me. If  you feel sore, do it every other day, but just keep track so you can make sure to do it 30 times.

I Can Has Cheezburger? Whenever I’m feeling low or just flat out bored, I’ll hop over to this hilarious website for a few laughs. The best part (besides being dedicated to cat humor) is that it has tons of offspring sites, such as School of Fails, So Much Pun and many more. Raise your hand if you’ve submitted photos with captions to this site. 🙂
