WIAW Numbah 10

Okay, after looking at all of the What I Ate Wednesday posts everywhere I just couldn’t resist posting my own even though I hadn’t planned on doing so. So, as a consequence, this is more of a “What Has Happened Since Friday” post. Oh well!

Protein cereal! PB&C Puffins and Kashi GoLean with SunWarrior and almond milk.

Saturday morning, I saw my mom off. She’s spending the week in North Carolina with my half-sister and one of our family friends (my half-sister’s mother). Yeah, I know, we have a weird family. My mom is friends with my dad’s first wife and so am I. But we all love each other!

6-mile medium-length run from Sunday.

That night, the boyfrand and I went out to a party for one of his friends that spent the last semester in Australia and is finally back in the States. I had a really nice time, even if there wasn’t any beer pong (love!). Although there were plenty of card and dice games πŸ˜‰ .

Me and my love in our "going out" outfits. And, yes, there are zebras all over my dress.

Even though we didn’t get back until early in the morning, my body still wanted to get up at 7:30 apparently. I didn’t feel bad or tired or anything, so I decided to still go for my scheduled run, which didn’t go too badly as you can see from the table above! I just made sure that I kept well hydrated is all.

Green Monster; topped with Fiber One Honey Squares, chia seeds, raisins, and strawberry-banana puff cereal.

Most of the rest of the day, unfortunately, was spent in the fetal position. My IBS acted up near the end of the day and the tiredness kicked in as well. The boyfrand and I ordered Chinese take-out from my favorite place and we watched a few episodes of Big Band Theory. Okay, he watched. I sort of dozed off and tried to get my intestine to cooperate.

Tuesday's 4.5-mile short-run. Speedy!

Monday was back to the normal week. Class, work, and yoga class. This session’s classes are already 2/3 of the way done! I can’t believe it, and I’ve actually quite enjoyed this session’s classes too. I can’t believe that next week marks the end of July and, thus, the beginning of August. I even paid the first month’s rent at my new apartment today! It makes the end of summer seem like it’s coming up so fast.

Overnight Oats in a Jar; who knows what all was put in there. I like to make mine a day or two ahead of time instead of just the night before so I usually forget. P.S. this is my favorite unflavored nut butter ^^^

Tuesday was uneventful since I don’t have class or work, although I did run and that went pretty well I think. The new shoes are still holding up quite nicely and I think they’ll be perfect for my half. Only 53 more days! Then today I had class and work again. I usually have Zumba on Wednesdays, but since mom’s gone this week I decided not to go and instead opted for Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30 DVD Levels 2 AND 4 back-to-back. I did Level 2 fairly easily, but Level 4 is still whooping my butt. HelloΒ boob sweat. TMI?Β Nah!

Body by Jillian? Proof you don't need a rack of weights to build muscles.

Not really sure what the rest of the evening has in store, but I have an online exam tomorrow, a few hours of work, and maybe going to start studying for my Monday exam or read for class. It’ll be an active rest day (only biking to get to/from work) and then Friday I’m going to be attempting yet another PDR: my first ever 12-miler. I want to get two in before my race, so I figure do one now, another a month or so from now, and then taper until my race on the 18th of September. It sounds good in my head at least. I’ve really enjoyed following my “Non-plan” training plan. Next time will probably be a lot different, though, since I’ll be trying to improve on speed rather than focusing solely on completeness.


I’m still looking for guest posts! Email me, shoot me a tweet or a DM, whatever!

Do you like following a set training plan or just going with the flow?

What’s the best thing that you’ve eaten lately?

  1. I made zucchini “bacon” using the eggplant “bacon” recipe from Appetite for Reduction and it’s probably the best thing I’ve eaten in a loooooooooooooong time!

    Thanks for the kind works and support you left earlier today, they were much needed and appreciated! I just need something to provide the burn and satisfaction of running without the pain. :\

    I’m going to be taking advanced foods (super-awesome cooking class thing), ecology of foods, nutrition throughout the lifecycle and human anatomy, which I hear is going to take up all of my time for memorization. Oh well, I don’t have a social life now, why start? πŸ˜›

    And great picture! Your arm(s) look great! That workout is really working for you! πŸ˜€

  2. you should do a post on your effects from your eating disorder, it could be really interesting for your readers since you seem to be good with words and explaining things πŸ™‚ have you always had really thin and string hair and bags under your eyes, or is that because of your ed? I have bags under mine too and i hate ii, no matter how much sleep I get they are always there!

    • I actually don’t remember how my hair, skin, etc used to be since this all started 7 years ago, but as far as my hair goes my ends are complete crap, but the hair that is growing in seems to be fairly thick and healthy. My nails are strong and haven’t chipped or cracked in months. The bags thing has been happening since before I can remember. They just appear whenever I smile and are especially bad if I sleep on my face or cry (all that fluid going to your face).

      I wish I could do a post like that, but I really don’t remember that much at all. I’ve been contemplating what few pictures I have from back then, but I don’t know yet.

      Also, that picture was taken literally right after my workout. NOT putting on my best face or even having brushed hair, haha.

  3. You are your boy are so cute πŸ˜€ and you two look very happy.
    And ah-hem, those muscles are AMAZING! You go girl!

    As for training, I used to follow a strict plan but that only led to me getting injured so for now I’m just planning it out the night before!

  4. Wow, look at your muscles! I love the photo of you and your man — you both look so happy! And any dress with zebras on them sounds like the perfect thing to wear out! πŸ™‚
