Itching to run

24 Mar

Guess who got their race packet yesterday?



Major excitement was (and still is) occurring when I went to pick up my stuff my race coming up on Saturday April 2. I also just recently convinced my sister, Jessica, to run the race with me! It is always so much more fun to have someone to run and exercise with you . And my sister is definitely not the most active person…I guess I have rubbed off on her? Hope so! So exciting!!

This morning I had oatbran for breakfast:


It’s been a while…and it tasted fantastic!!

I used 1/2 cup oatbran, 1 cup water, cinnamon, vanilla, maca, mesquite, and 1 scoop of plain whey protein powder. Then  I topped it with 1/2 banana and 1/2 cup defrosted blueberries. Great start to my day!

Then I got busy with one of my favorite Fitnessista circuits:

The Workout:

  • jumping squats
  • wall pushups
  • couch dips
  • high knees
  • plank
  • side plank, both sides
  • plie squat
  • calf raises
  • pilates swimming move

I did this 3 times through. Glorious!

Then I fueled those muscles with some protein:


1/3 cup eggbeaters microwaved and topped with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.

Rewinding back to dinner, I did indeed have my current fav:


KALE CHIPS!!! along with a ginormous organic yellow sweet potato with tahini and peanut butter. Ohhh, indecisiveness.


Then for desert, I dug into the depths of my freezer to find this little gem:


Only my favorite muffins EVER. No big deal.

This would one of of HEAB’s banana nut muffins. Make them!

I also made a pretty pretty bangin’ lunch time wrap yesterday that I thought was blog worthy:




Mmmmm! This was awesome. It contained:

  • 1 Josephs lavish wrap
  • 1 laughing cow cheese wedge
  • spinach
  • sprouts
  • pinto beans
  • avocado

Ok! Gotta get ready for work now. I’m running late. Darn blogging addiction. 😉

Love ya’ll!

    Hi. 🙂 That wrap looks great! I love wraps with avocado in them. Yum! And I have never done races really and don’t really have a desire to (yet) because I am not a runner (yet) 😉 However, the cool tee shirts and things you get for doing a race are so fun!
