Hi, friends! How’s it going?
It’s time for another Monday In Meals post where I recap a day of my meals and snacks from, well, Monday. After some Sunday food prep, I tend to eat healthier at the beginning of the week, so I figured my eats might be good inspiration. Plus, CNC started out as a food journal, so it’s fun to take her back to her roots sometimes. And without further ado, here’s the next edition of Monday in Meals!
Two eggs scrambled with roasted zucchini, summer squash, and nutritional yeast + sourdough toast + iced coffee with half and half
Post-workout protein shake made with SFH vanilla Recovery + water – I drank it while watching Q-Man play at the gym
Half of a honey dip donut – Quinn and I had a rough morning, so I thought maybe sharing a donut would turn things around for us.
Pecan Sticky Bun iced coffee with milk
A few slices of Quinn’s orange
A piece of Matzoh Crunch
Plain Greek yogurt with peanuts and dried cherries
Crock-Pot Lemon Herb Chicken mixed with spaghetti squash and grated Parmesan
Two Lemon Coconut Date Rolls + a glass of wine that I feel like I kind of needed after Quinn’s tantrum-filled morning and then him skipping his nap all together. It was a lonnnnggg Monday, so a nice glass of wine was just what I needed!
Now let’s talk about running! I took a little time off when the CrossFit Open started just because it was difficult to balance both, but I’m back at it once again with a few races on my calendar in the coming months.
Upcoming Race Calendar
I’m running the Harpoon 5-Miler once again as part of a 6-woman team along with the lovely ladies of KFIT. We had a blast last year, so I am already looking forward to this year’s race!
I am especially excited about this race because my sister and I are training for it together. Well, not technically running together to prepare for it, but we’re using similar training plans and keeping each other motivated. My sister hasn’t run a race since 2009 (we ran the Run to Remember together), so she’s itching to get back into it and we thought training together would be a fun way to help keep us accountable.
I loved running this race last year and already have it on my calendar as my fall half marathon. It’s a tough course (super hilly), so I really want to improve my time this year!
