Katy has inspired me to kick up my workouts and completely clean up my eating….not just mostly clean it up like I’m doing now (I feel real guilty for that cookie I ate when I got to work…Ooops!!) Especially because today was a rest day.
So I want to keep up with my running, it’s something I’m learning to enjoy, something I have watched myself get better at, and has health benefits all of it’s own. However now I’m going to kick up my “non-run” workouts. Katy does a lot of HIIT workouts (Blonde Ponytail does these too!!!) I think I want to add an extra speed work day and incorporate more HIIT style runs. I also want to kick up my weight lifting. I never increase my weight, or my reps. I do the same workouts and weight and reps every time. I get lazy in a way….Time for that to change! I don’t want to go all Body Builder Betty on you, but I want to be more fit, and more lean/toned!
Katy has logged her progress and discusses what has worked for her. Hopefully some more intense strength training will help with my distance running too!!
I want to be as “obsessed” with being healthy as she is….a good healthy PASSION as she calls it for being healthy! I will still have rest days and I will still have ice cream (occasionally….)
So here is what I had for dinner at work tonight. I felt pretty good eating this after reading her blog for a little while!!
What was left of my tuna salad when I got all "creeper taking a picture of her tuna salad" like in the breakroom. Tuna, red bell pepper, onion, and pickle, a SMIDGE of olive oil mayo (Yes Smidge is a word...duh) and spicy mustard.
A good ole bowl of blackberries (I've had a TON of these lately because they were 4/$5 last week!
And this little yummy delight kind of tricked me. So on my Primal eating thing I limit my carb intake (I don't eat grain....unless I'm being bad) this yogurt had 27g of carbs. No biggie, I need carbs and I need them from things like this. However my "lowfat" yogurt forgot to mention on the front that it had 23g of SUGAR....Please see my Dear Sugar post to see why this is a problem for me..... I stopped eating it (about half way through - as soon as I read this) because I just didn't want the sugar! I'm proud of myself for that one!!
My Iphone food pictures are FABULOUS I know….email me if you’d like to hire my MAD photography skilled self to shoot your next event (Bahaha yah right!)
Go check out Katy's blog!
Anyone have any feedback on this? I think I'm going to start gearing my blog toward a more "healthy living" blog that strictly running. I want to start posting my recipes, more food pictures, and my workouts. Wish Me Luck!!!
