Shin Is a 4 Letter Word!

Hello my loves!!!! thank you so much for all the sweet comments on my last post, you guys are too sweet! It was such an amazing experience and I already have my next race planned! I am so excited! I just hope that my shins cooperate…they have been hurting since ayer…sad panda.

Eats & Workouts

Ayer for Breakfast I had Oikos Honey Yogurt with Tropical Dried Fruit and PB


I was taking a nap, when the mailman woke me up…my fabulous friend Kim sent me a care package…Gum, Chocolate, and Pumpkin Spice! she knows me so well lol


and she sent me a small sign that says “Namaste”!


Since I was awake, I decided to make Lunch; a Low Carb Wrap filled with Amy’s Refried Beans, Onions, Peppers, Avocado, Reduced Fat Sour Cream, and Salsa…you would think I was Mexican with all the “Mexican” food I eat lol.


For Dessert I had Yoplait Caramel Delights Parfait.


For din din I made Stir-fry with Brussels, Mushrooms, and Tofu in Teriyaki Sauce, PB, Hot Szechuan Sauce, and Red Pepper Flakes…


I didn’t workout ayer because my body was still sore…


This morning I woke up and just had one thing on my mind…I WANT TO GO RUN!

First I fueled up with 1 scoop of Chocolate LMM


Before heading to the park I downloaded a free trial of Jobstats on my phone. My run was so bad! My legs were so tired and my shins were in pain and my heart rate was so high! My plan was to run 4.3 miles but I only managed to do 2.6 miles in 30 minutes. I don’t know what was wrong with me today, I felt so discouraged! I should mention that the park I run in is Forest HILLS! lol what was I thinking?

I have a question…what do you guys use to track your pace and distance when you are running? I really liked the program that I used oh my phone but I am not too fond of carrying my phone while I am running and I can’t use my itouch because I don’t have Wifi in the park. I have been using Mapmyrun.com but today I realized that it was off by .2 miles….which is not a lot but I am so neurotic about things lol. Also, what do you do for shin pain?

After my run, I came home and had some Kashi Oatmeal with PB and Dried Fruit and my usual Cafe con Leche…


For Lunch I ordered some Tex-Mex food but I was let down…I had Black Beans with Rice, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Tortilla, and Guacamole…I also ordered Shrimp and assumed they were grilled but instead they were fried and just tasted FO! Don’t get me wrong, I love fried shrimp, I just didn’t love THIS fried shrimp.


I was not that hungry when din din rolled around so I just had a Lemon Zest Luna Bar…


I love that I am rubbing off on my family! My cousin Joseph just sent me a picture of his din din which he made with his Girlfriend Liz…I heart that they snapped a picture of it and thought of me lol

Grilled Pork Chops, with Chopped Turkey Bacon, Onions and Sunny side Eggs over Rice…


If I were eating meat, I would be all over this dish! I hope you two are enjoying it =)

Have a great night everyone!
