Hello! How is it going?
This morning I woke up bright and early (despite grand plans to sleep in). So I decided to do my usual ritual of walking to get an iced coffee. Except, I didn’t get the coffee but did get raspberries. Yeah.
I plan my life around running (and eating) so I did nothing except relax and sip some beverages after my long run Saturday.
Vegas is an expert at relaxin’ so he gave me some tips:
Eats included trying the new Skinny Girl granola bar – it was good, but nothing special for $1.29 hello.
It’s just like every other granola bar with a chocolate base I’ve tried. Could slap Quaker or any other label on it and I wouldn’t know the difference.
Trail mix on this fancy Ikea ‘plate’
After my walk I made a BIG egg scramble quesadilla.
Then, I started to set up my week for success with a thorough cleaning session. I ‘save’ cleaning for rest days so I still feel like I’m being active AND I don’t have to spend extra time on my feet after a run.
Since it was difficult to cram my clean clothes into my drawers I dumped them out and went through them. I tossed out anything that I was just so-so about.
And then I headed to my mom’s to bug her. But, there was a miscommunication and I’m here alone. Well, I’m never really alone… there’s always Jesus.
My mom had a HUGE watermelon on her counter so I took the liberty of cutting it for her.
She’ll top it with Tajin, but I eat it straight up.
Time for Sunday Set Up!
I don’t feel like cooking this week (again) I have to get it together with that.
Question: What did you do today? Did you clean too?
What’s on your exercise schedule? Meal plan?
Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment says
I just moved so I feel like I am constantly cleaning and organizing! I try to prep a few things on Sunday and have a general idea of my fitness plan going into the week.
The hubs and I just bought a house, so I feel like I’m always obsessively cleaning!
Leslie @ Life Begins @ 30? says
I clean on days off too. Yesterday, I took the pup out for a 2 mile run/walk and then cleaned my house. It was a mess and needed it!! 2 black furry animals=never truly clean house.
it was a GORGEOUS weekend here in Boston, so I spent as much time outside having fun as I could. Friday after work went for a run with a friend at Castle Island. Sat did a PiYo workout then a 2 mile walk w/my pups. Did my meal plan, food shopping then Sat night grilled and chilled outback with a fire. Sunday 3mile run w/my pup then hit the beach for 7 glorious and fun packed hours with my sister/niece.
have a good week.
It was an active weekend for me! On Sunday I reorganized my bedroom! And vacuumed. sheesh. I also planned my workouts (kinda), cooked some meals (kinda), and got books from the library!
Hannah @ Hannah the Healthnut says
I can’t stand granola bars that resemble Quaker bars. GAH! I am a nerd, so I go out and but a mix of quest bars, larabars, odd trail mix bars, new protein bars, and chocolate bars.
Lots of chocolate bars.
Ashley @ Saving Money in your Twenties says
You’re making me want to go through my clothes and get rid of stuff… I have SO many things that I’m kinda “ehhhh” about but I just never have the guts to get rid of them. ha!
Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out says
I love Sunday Planning! It makes the whole week go by easier!
Beth @ Running with the Sunrise says
I had a 15 mile long run and then had to work an 8.5 hour shift, so I didn’t get a chance to do any cleaning, but my husband did! My meal plan: eat pretty much whatever I want since it’s long run day! 🙂
Great start to Sunday with a group run where we caught up with one of our friends who was back for the weekend. Spent the rest of the day vege-ing i.e. being lazy at home after collecting a race kit for a friend. Fab Sunday. 🙂
Long run day. Had 10 miles on my training plan AKA Hal Higdon’s training plan in preparation for the Ventura Half 🙂
I went on a 5 mile walk with a ziplock bag in my pocket. Why? Because I planned on picking more blackberries because I used all of the original batch for jam. I came home and emptied my dishwasher, showered, did a load of laundry….. wandered around the house then asked my husband if he wanted to go get a beer or two at the tavern. Ha! Came home and watched Airplane and then made a blackberry pie and bbq’d hot dogs for the kids. Sunday Funday.
Laura @FitMamaLove says
Interesting idea about saving cleaning for rest days! I approach cleaning much as I do working out–fit it in whenever you can in whatever amounts you can!
Losing Lindy says
I love that you go in and cut up your Mom’s watermelon, you are welcome to come over anytime, I have a watermelon that needs to be cut up as well as a shower that needs to be cleaned 😉
Warning: If I cut your watermelon I eat half of it too.
Oh man I definitely lol’d at that pic of Vegas. My kitty April was totally just laying like that with her feet pointed/belly out. (It’s on my instagram, @meghanke, if anyone realllly wants to see pics of cats + dogs + some running lol 🙂
I’m looking it up 🙂
Today I cooked lunches for the week. Then did a 12 mile bike ride since my plantar fasciitis is acting up. No cleaning! Maybe tomorrow.
Good job on the lunches! Have a great week 🙂
Katie @ Live Half Full says
Here’s what I do to set up my week on Sunday!
Awesome! Have a great week 🙂
My husband and I went to La Jolla to site see and now I’m home meal prepping and creating recipes for the week 🙂
Linda @ Fit Fed and Happy says
What about their bars are skinny? The low calories? Low fat?
I think it’s mostly that they are the Skinny Girl brand, but they are about 160 calories which is less than a lot of ‘protein’ bars – buuutttt, I don’t remember how much protein they had (so they might be more comparable to a granola bar’s calories).
Sally @ sweat out the small stuff says
I took a brisk 30 minute walk this morning. Trying to just take it easy for a bit. Month 4 with tendonitis still lingering.
I ran the dishwasher and put the cleans away. Other than that no cleaning 🙂
I also am not in a cooking mood. I have a premade quiche and a rotisserie chicken so I’ll probably just purchase a small salad each day at work and portion out the quiche and chicken.
I can’t believe the weekend is over alresdy 🙁
