Half way through week four of half marathon training and my pace is FINALLY getting back to pre cold levels!!! Today was lunchtime treadmill intervals for 3 miles in 36:40. …and afterwards I wanted to eat EVERYTHING! lol…. I was starving!

Today was crazy. After a month of interviews and craziness, I got promoted. Wow. It seems pretty surreal, I didn’t tell anyone I was working toward this because I wasn’t at all sure that I would get it, but I did.

That, and I saw the Hunger Games which was great (!!!). Then on the way home I had a completely scarry bus ride, I got off and waited for another I was so freaked out. Yeah, crazy crazy day. :)

Dinner ideas?

This weekend was all about cleaning and exercise. Two yoga classes, boxing and a clean house! This week I have oats for breakfast and salads for lunch. Dinner is trickier, but we have lots of eggs and veggies. I just need to be strong enough to pick healthy things when my partner is eating fettuccine every night.

Have you ever dealt with this? He tries to be supportive, but is enrolled in a sustainable culinary program, so my go to sources of lean protein are tossed out the window as inhumane and unsanitary, and he is making pasta! Lol…. I’m trying to be supportive of his program/education and truthfully I make almost every ‘processed’ thing that we eat, baked goods, bread, granola, jam - all from scratch.

But I am finding limitations such as no ground meat (I really need to buy a meat grinder! Lol….), and no products owns by pepsi (even if organic) to be difficult!

Help! Lol…. I need some lean dinner ideas. What are your favorites?

Week two, second run this week! Quick lunchtime run (while watch the 300 hee hee!) Ahem, anyway, speed was a bit better and just two walking breaks, but I felt good! No soreness before or after. Saturday I have another run scheduled and am going to try to catch yoga again. Last week I made the class, picked up a super yummy protein shake and a few groceries, ending the day with this awesome feeling of ‘this is how I want to start rewarding myself’, a feeling I used to only associate with eating an entire cake.
