Hey Guys! How’s everyone’s week going so far? I’m glad it’s Wednesday! I love hump day and it’s a mid-week date night with Michael and Modern Family is on. All good things in my book! Also good? I get to announce the winner of the Danskin Triathlon Series Entry! The winner is:
Kristin, please email me at LiveRunLoveYoga at gmail dot com with your contact information!
Now on to the food! When you train for a marathon it’s easy to get used to eating larger portions and a lot of snacks. Do two marathons back to back and it’s much easier to become accustomed to that. I’ve been trying to think about smaller portions, a lot of veggies and a less carbs than I normally would eat and am also trying to choose snacks that will keep me full for longer. I’ve been working on eliminating sweets during the week and so far so good. I will say though, by the weekend I’m definitely craving something sweet!
What’s better than oatmeal on a cool, damp spring morning? Nothing if you ask me! I went with apple cinnamon oatmeal with a little skim milk on top, blackberries, a scoop of almond butter and a scoop of cocoa almond spread. Delicious!
And of course a cup of coffee with a little cinnamon in it!
My lunches need a little variety so this week I went with tuna with a little bit of mayo, salt and pepper on a whole wheat sandwich thin with lettuce, cucumber and a little bit of mustard. Some blue corn tortilla chips on the side.
I packed a greek yogurt, granola bar and an apple to snack on throughout the day. I only ate the apple and the greek yogurt but like to pack extra snacks in case I’m exceptionally hungry. Delicious!
Michael and I are getting really good at throwing together quick, healthy dinners. This is one of our favorites! It’s cod with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and lemon with crumbled Ritz crackers on top. On the side we had some mushroom rice pilaf and grilled asparagus.
We can make this dinner in less than 30 minutes and it’s always flavorful and filling. With the warmer weather coming I’m sure this dinner will be making a more frequent appearance!
No photo but I did indulge in some chocolate chip coffee ice cream with dark chocolate syrup on top. Not going to lie, it tasted so good!
