Week 4

Hey Loves! Week 4 of C25K is kicking my bum! My legs are so tight and I swear I must have asthma because I sound like Darth Vader when I am on the treadmill ha. BUT I have managed to complete the workouts thus far so that’s a good thing! WOOHOOO

Eats and Workouts

For some reason, I have been craving Mexican food like crazy, first with my Tofu Quesadilla and now with my Mexican Pizza. This pizza consisted of my Black Beans, 2% Mexican Blend Cheese, Rudi’s Wholegrain Wrap, Salsa, and Reduced Fat Sour cream.


(I am still on the Mexican kick; tonight I am making fresh guac! yuuuuuums.)

Later in the evening, I trained my client and only burned 147 Calories while I trained her; I was spotting her for most of it.

For din din I made my usual stir fry but with some tweaks. First I fried the Tofu in a little bit of Oil and then I tossed in some Brussels, Mushrooms, Red Pepper Flakes, Szechuan Hot Paste, Sesame Teriyaki, and PB…this was soooooo freaking good! I would have paid to have this delivered lol


and for dessert some Protein Cookie Dough


This morning I went to the gym and completed day 2 of C25K and did 10 minutes of Elliptical and burned 497 Calories.

For Breakfast I had OIAJ!


I hope everyone has a great afternoon. I am off to snag a good parking spot before the storm hits…Stay safe AND Warm!

  9. I've actually been thinking of making some mexican pizza soon. Looks delish!

  10. The fact that you can breathe at the same time as run, wheezing or not, puts you waaaaaaaaaay ahead of me. You are doing great!

    I would pay to have that delivered too- want to ship me some tofu goodness? :P

  11. Even though we're super far apart, we still are in sync! I've been eating nothing but Mexican lately...healthy nachos, tacos, and black bean salads w/ salsa. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I read your blog today. :)

  17. You are doing so well on the Couch to 5K plan. I am so proud of you :) Watch out 5k in a few weeks.

    I have not made Mexican Pizza in such a long time. Yours looks soooo good. Do you deliver?

  18. Protein Cookie Dough??? what is this, love?? I think I need some!
