Wednesday Eats

When your dinner looks like this, how can it not be a good day?

Yesterday's workout per schedule speedwork, 7 miles with 4 x 1600 @ 7:51 w/ 800m jogs.
I iced my hamstrings afterward, I think it helped. My legs are still sore (mostly my hamstrings) I know it's because I'm lazy and don't do anything after runs, ie... stretch, ice, eat... That all changes now.
Thank you for the comments and suggestions... I think I need to get more protein in my diet and I know I have start rolling and icing. I think I'm going to get the stick... I tried it at the running store and really liked it. It's pricey, but hopefully, it will be worth it.

Lets talk about schedules, not running ones, daily ones...
Do you follow one?
I do, to a T.
I have to, with two little kids, it's the only way I can get anything done, and it helps them because they get used to routine.
The question I get most from friends, family, strangers, bloggers, etc... is how I find the time to workout.
My daily (weekday) schedule looks a little like this:
Wake up
Give Kids breakfast - Pick up house
Work on the computer for an hour or two (the kids are good in the morning and content playing)
Run errands
Eat lunch
Down time for kids (I do a little more work)
nap time! (Workout time for me!)
More work
Cook dinner
Kids sleep
Relax time for me and hubby = I read blogs
The weekends are totally different. I do my long run on Saturday morning, hubby stays with the kids. They meet me at the park, Baby Leila is ALWAYS dressed weird. I have to get in the habit of leaving her clothes picked out. Why is it that hubby can dress Adam no problem, but baby Leila always looks ready for Tacky Tuesday?
Do you guys follow a routine?
Do you like routine?


  1. That top pic looks like heaven in a pan! Yum!
    Wow kids that nap? That is/was a foreign concept around here. Enjoy it. :)

  2. I try to follow a routine. I was much better about it at the beginning of the year but have had to make some adjustments now that I live on my own and do not have the help with my pup! Means I work out at night some times which is hard for me...but its nice because I can get in a run outside in the setting run with my pup. It is always a nice way to relax...even though I would rather be hitting up the gym in the am and being done with my workout for the day!!

  3. Oh my goodness, your dinner looks amazing!
    Your running is going to get EVEN BETTER once you ice and stretch, seriously!

  4. mmmmm looks so much better than the frozen veggie lasagna i heated up.
