Christmas in March!

Hello my loves! today has been such a great day. I started the day early with an amazing yogurt mess…Oikos Honey Yogurt, with Banana, PB and my usual cafe con leche. How can something so simple taste so good?

I then simmered some beans, paid bills, and did laundry; a very productive morning. My sis then called me to tell me she was getting out of work early which meant an early gym session! WOOHOO but then I was like “hey wait, let’s go to the track instead” and thankfully she was cool with that. I iced my shins for about 1/2 an hour and then got ready to go.

Can I just say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the track in Forest Hills Park! I felt so great on it; my legs hurt just a tad but not as bad as ayer, Thank You Jesus! I took it easy and walked and jogged around the track 15 times which equals around 3.7 miles depending on which lane you use, I used this to figure it out. I then did a nice looooong stretch and burned 583 Calories in 55 minutes.

After our workout, we headed to Sports Authority since almost everyone has been telling me to invest in a foam roller to help my legs out. Sidenote: the people that work there need a crash course in fitness! I asked about 3 different people to point me to the foam rollers and they all looked at me like I had a penis growing out of my forehead! Thank god my sis was there whom is tall and found it! Thanks Jenn =)

Melissa look it’s Bebbeh’s cousin! Maybe I should dress him up in fancy outfits too lol.

I also invested in a Nike + iPod Sports Kit to track my runs! Thanks Missy for the recommendation =) and since I am an Asics Girl, I also got a little pouch to attach it to my kicks =). I can not wait to use it!!!!

After shopping, I came back home and made lunch; Low Carb Wrap filled with homemade Black Beans with Onions and Peppers, 2% Colby and Monterey Cheese, Avocado Slices, and Salsa.

After lunch, I put my new foam roller to good use with the help of some youtube videos. I managed to stretch my shins out but it was a little painful BUT the guy in the video said that it is supposed to hurt a little. Do you guys have foam rollers? and if so, do you have any tips????

For din din I just had my usual stir-fry!

I am so sorry for the repetitive meals but when I like something, I stick with it lol.

Time to go ice my shins and catch up on some blogs, have a great night loves!

Namaste…

  8. Never apologize for good food! Ever.

    I never ran on the track in Forest Hills. Sounds like you did amazingly! I've never used a foam roller either but maybe that would help with my groin issues...hmmm...

    As for your dinner. I'm thinking possibly some form of butternut squash infused lasagna. Let me know what you think.

  9. You're not repetitive! If it ain't broke, don't fix it, yo!

    I was told that the best way to work with a foam roller is roll and then hold where you feel tension. I roll my hips and gluts at the gym- I feel less creepy when others do it too!

    Thank you for the sweet comments doll! You always make my day :)

    You're a popular girl...lots of visitors on el blog!

    Great job on the track! I haven't run on a real track since high school...never knew they had some just for runners to use. Good luck with the foam roller- have heard it's supposed to be painful :(

  24. Hey, didn't get to comment earlier... but congratulations on your awesome 5k! That is so amazing! Also, love that you woke up ready for more running today. 3.7?! Wow! Unstoppable! :)
