A Hop, Skip, and Jump Away

Today's my last day of work before leaving on my trip tomorrow morning! I'm excited to be away from work but not really too excited about the trip. We're trying to see a lot of people when we're back so our schedule's jam-packed and we're not staying in any one place longer than a night. Plus there's going to be a LOT of eating out and I've been struggling with my eating so much lately. I'm bringing lots of snacks and bars to stash in my purse since we're going to 3 baseball games and I'd rather have a Clif Z bar than a hotdog anyways. (Don't get me wrong, I love a good hotdog cooked on the grill but hotdogs at most ballparks aren't that good.) I am taking my running stuff and I am going to try my darnedest to squeeze in some runs or walks while we're there. It will be good to see everybody but I really hate going back to Oklahoma or Texas with Stephen because between the two of us, there's too many people to see and someone always ends up feeling short-changed.

I did some yoga last night and today the weather is sunny and warmer so I'll definitely be doing a run at lunch. I've missed it so much (running and warm weather)!! Since I've been getting to work at 6:30 I've decided to eat 2 smaller breakfasts in the mornings instead of my usual bigger breakfast and mid-morning snack. It's roughly the same amount of calories but splitting them up more evenly. Hopefully, this will give me some better fuel for my runs...worth a shot anyways.

Today's Plan:
Activity: 5.5 mile run--may try for 7 today, we'll see what the weather's like
Breakfast 1: 1 english muffin with 1 tbsp jam and 1/2 tbsp peanut butter
Breakfast 2: 1/4 cup oatmeal with 1 banana, cinnamon, and 1 tbsp peanut butter
Lunch: Lean Cuisine Roasted Turkey Breast, 1 cup peas, 1 1/2 cups green beans
Afternoon Snack: 1 Clif Z bar
Dinner: Subway--6 inch sandwich and apples
Evening Snack: 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt with 1 banana and flax seed

Have a great week everyone and I'll be back next Wednesday!!

I think you have a great plan - you do what you can!! Family sharing is always hard - I totally know where you are coming from.

2 breakies - I bet that helped on your run - did it?
