Guess what? Nobody cares. I have to get out of the mindset that I need to run an extra mile or pick up my pace for the people who read the blog or check my stats on Daily Mile. Seriously - I can't believe I even have to tell myself that. I run for me. The end.
That said, here's last week for you:
Monday: 30 Minutes of Spin, 35 Minutes of Upper Body and Core ST.
Tuesday: Ran 3 Miles, 30 Minutes of Lower Body ST.
Wednesday: 35 Minutes of Spin, 30 Minutes of Upper Body and Core ST.
Thursday: Rest Day
Friday: Ran 4.5 Miles, 20 Minutes of Lower Body ST.
Saturday: Walked 7 Miles
Sunday: Rest Day
Yeah, reading this makes me feel dumb. So I didn't run for 3 hours on Saturday. I still worked out and hit my goals for strength training. I've been moping like I sat on my ass all week and giving myself a hard time. Yeesh.
Today I worked out right away after waking and had a shot block and lots of water and felt pretty good for 6 miles. I didn't actually have ANY stomach pain for a good 45 minutes so I call that a success!
Most of the time when Tim and I eat we eat the exact same thing - just the portions are different because he's 6 feet tall and I'm 5'4". Since I do most of the cooking, I cook what I like and he eats it. Where do you guys send my nominations for wife of the year? Sometimes though we will make the base of our dishes the same but vary the sides a little. This evening I made a ground turkey Bolognese sauce which Tim put on top of his spaghetti:
I used the same sauce and put it on top of a baked sweet potato with a little Greek yogurt:
I purposely chose a picture where you can't really see the mound of kale chips in the back. They burned to a crisp because I was freaking taking pictures of the spaghetti. I take like three food photos a week and it kills me every time - how do people do it who photograph three meals a day? Note to self: turn oven off and THEN take pictures.
Do you eat the same meals as your husband/wife/boyfriend/roommate/cat? (I think I covered all the bases there.)
Breakfast we put different toppings on our oatmeal (Me = PB and chocolate protein powder. Him = brown sugar and banana) and lunch we do our own thing. Dinners are 80% the same but I make little changes like:
-Corn tortillas for me, flour tortillas for him
-Tacos with cheese for him, Greek yogurt for me
If you post workouts to your blog/Facebook/Daily Mile does it encourage you to work harder?
It definitely does - and most of the time I would say that is a great thing. Sometimes though I feel the need to keep up with others and obviously that's just going to get me landed in some hospital somewhere.
