28 February 2011


I ran this week, I pushed myself in yoga this week, I worked my muscles this week.  I ate well.  This upcoming week I will be starting a running program with the Title 9 store in my area in preparation for their 9K on Mother’s Day.  I belong to a running club but have been lame in not running with them.  I am intimidated to run with them which is silly but I am.  I mean heck, some of the core members of that club just got back from the Cross Country Nationals and did very well.  In addition to their one training run I want to get three other runs in, two yoga sessions and three strength-training sessions.

This week will be busy but here is our meal plan…

Sunday: jambalaya

Monday: going out- restaurant week near us, a place specializing in locally sourced food

Tuesday: chaana saag and brown rice

Wednesday: wheat berries, scallions, bok choy and eggs

Thursday: salad w/ grilled chicken + grilled veggies

Friday: chili dogs (sprouted wheat buns), sweet tater fries, brocolli and Kool-Aid (seriously, my hubby’s request this week – he has not Kool Aid in the 6+ years I have known him)

I put some clothes up at The Great Clothing Exchange so please head over there if you want them.  The winners will be drawn 3 March.

The stress I have been feeling with my son approaching nine months was not as bad this week.  I distracted myself.  I will be doing this until he is about 10 months.  I know it.  I am making sure to do it in a healthy way and exercise hard, be out with positive friends, or bury myself in some work I need to finish up.

Have a wonderful week everyone.  I mentioned a few athletic events I am doing this year in my vlog.  Are you planning events for yourself? If so what are they?

  1. Sleeping babies are the best babies to take out. Awesome menu plan for the week. My husband buys kool-aid singles because I don’t make it.
    You have a great plan (and busy one) to help destress and reach your weight goals in the next few months.
    Fingers crossed that I get to meet up with you this summer.
    Keep up the awesomeness!

  2. Sounds like you’ve been (and will be) super busy! Way to go, super lady!
    Good luck with all that is coming up!

  3. Kool-Aid? Well that’s a different (and kind of fun) request! It sounds like you’re going to have a super busy week. I can’t wait to hear how it goes!

  4. Oh, I have seen wheat berries… and fed them to animals, but have never eaten them myself. Soak and boil? How do you eat yours?

    Good luck with the running. You have quite a schedule for yourself this week. I can’t wait to see how you did. You really rock on a scale from 1 to awesomeness! (forgive me, I am sleep deprived and oozing cheesy-ness! But still love you.)

  5. Kia, I just love your everything. Coffee shop with a family. Ah! I am so looking forward to meeting you in person

  6. I don’t blame you, I’d be a little intimidated to run with them too! BUT you’re totally working it.
    Stress is a butt kicker, but you can do this!

  7. I get super intimidated by the running community too… I know I shouldn’t, 99% of them are super nice and friendly and welcoming! It’s nice to know I’m not alone.

  8. good luck preparing for the 9k race i know you are going to do awesome. I can’t wait to meet you in person in june you are an inspiration to me and I thank you for always having the right words to say and lifting me up.

  9. I stopped doing kool aid a few years ago when i figured out splenda is bad for me, but the husband still enjoys a glass here and there as a s[ecial treat. So i totally get it.
    We do chili dogs too. i make bison and black bean chili first, and buy boar’s head natural casing hot dogs (gluten free), and make homemade french fries (baked). we skip the bread and just use the chili to dip the cut up hot dogs. Makes us happy and keeps us sane.
    Have a great week!
