Mojo, Where Did You Go???

Hey loves!!!!! Thank you for all the sweet comments on my previous post! I really had a great time at my race but ever since then, I have had ZERO urge to go outside for a run. I can’t pinpoint what exactly caused this but for the past couple of days when I am supposed to run, I talk myself out of it. I don’t know where my mojo went…

I was supposed to go run today but instead, I sat on the couch and tried to talk myself out of it yet again. “it’s too cold. my leg hurts. I don’t wanna!”. I sat down and had breakfast and after 1 hour, I got dressed and headed out…sometimes you just HAVE TO DO IT! and I am so happy that I did!

Today I started Week 6 of the Ease Into 10K Program and it consisted of 5 minute warm up, 10 minute run/1 minute walk 4X, and 5 minute cool down. I ran on the streets and worked my way to the park…I love sneaking in some Hill work. These were my splits:

I felt so great after my run and enjoyed some nice yoga stretches when I was done…Stretching is SO important and most people forget to to do it or just don’t want to…STRETCH PEOPLE! Avoid injury =)

Protein Intake

When I lost weight a few years ago, my nutritionist would make me do back to back protein days (only two days a week) and I remember how well it worked for me so I have been trying to incorporate that into my “diet”.

I have been enjoying more egg whites…



Mini Frittatas…


Cottage cheese mixed with Protein Powder, Peanut Butter, and some type of fruit….


And of course my green monster with protein powder…


I am scared of getting tired of eating the same things so I am looking for any protein suggestions (No Meat of course)…thanks!!!!
