But then she started to venture off a little. Days went by without mention of running OR food. And hey, the food that was mentioned? Far from gourmet. Sometimes, it was something healthy. Sometimes it was not. But it was rarely something to write home about, let's be honest.
Is the jig up? You guys know I'm talking about me, right? Otherwise this is probably making SO little sense. Anyway, I was realizing today that I have gotten away from the original idea of my blog - which is to talk about food and running. So here's a recap of both from the last few days:
NO MORE DINNER RUTS! I've been trying something new the last few days. The successes:
-Barbecued Tilapia Tacos
-Baked Cheesy Pasta (Using Quinoa pasta-delicious!)
-Pumpkin Muffins with a Brown Sugar Glaze (Most for the recipient of Kari's bake sale, but a few just for me!)
-Chocolate Protein Pancakes - my new favorite snack, dessert, meal, whatever!
THIS SOUP. Aka, "the gruel".
I've eaten it twice now. It stares at me from the fridge every time I opened the door. When I cover it in black pepper and parmesan cheese...well, it still tastes bad. But there are starving children in Africa, and unless I can figure out how to airmail them this crap then I'll keep eating it. UGH.
THE RUNS (Not those runs, the good kind)
Monday: I did a Virtual 5k and felt like the pace was easy to maintain. Hooray!
Tuesday: Um....I "ran" to the store to get more candy. In a car. And then I ate said candy.
Wednesday: 5 miles, with 3 at a tempo pace of 8:42. BOOM!
Thursday: 5 miles, nice and easy.
As you can see, keeping them nice and short this week. 10 miles this weekend, and then it's a week until the big day!
What is your go-to weeknight meal?
Pasta, definitely. Or easy chicken wraps - just cooked chicken with some cheese, veggies and salsa.
If you have a blog, have you stuck to your original idea of what it would include?
Yes and no. Initially, I started out documenting most of my meals...which got old fast. Now you all just get the highlights! I think I am focused more on running now than I was a few months ago as well.
