I can now die happy. I am the Team Refuel Athlete of the Month…you can see it here on Facebook but you didn’t think I would skip out on plastering a huge picture of myself on the blog too?!?!
Yesterday I got home from school, grabbed a bowl of cereal and drifted into a deep sleep, sitting up with my feet on the table. I am not even exaggerating, you can even ask Billy. I don’t remember the last time I was tired enough to sleep sitting up but I guess this is what the first day of the semester will do to you.
While I slept Billy got to work on dinner. He made brown rice in the rice cooker (he made as much as the cooker holds and freezes the leftovers for easy heat up) and cooked the chicken in our Sous Vide. The Sous Vide is our meat/veggie/egg cooker that cooks using water. You place the chicken (or whatever you are cooking) and the seasonings in a Ziploc bag and then enter in the correct temperature and time and let it do its work, it was so good and I am now requesting he makes this at least once a week.
And for dessert……
I didn’t mention it on the blog but on Christmas after my sis and I ate 2 full plates of dessert and felt completely sick we dared each other to go for a week without candy/ice cream/fro-yo/cake/cookies etc. We both did it.
The first few days were both really weird for us especially when we tried to run (we didn’t lower calories but instead replaced the junk calories with fruit and other healthier sources), our bodies were both so used to running off of sugar that it didn’t know what to do. By day 4 I felt AWESOME. It has been a little over a week and my sis is still going strong but I love candy and I am just going to have it in moderation now instead of 5 times a day.
Turns out all of that sugar isn’t good for you….I am getting so SMRT (please tell me you have seen that Simpson’s episode and if not, yes I meant to spell smart incorrectly).
I think I need a fro-yo run, it has been way to long……..MOM?!?! Today, after school;)
Here’s to a little bit more moderation of candy and ice-cream on HRG 2012. Keyword: A LITTLE.
If you eat chicken….what is your favorite chicken dish?
Are you going to watch the Biggest Loser this season?
-Yes, I can’t wait to watch it on hulu as I workout this morning!
How long was the longest you have gone without treats? How long do you think you could go without treats? Do you think lowering your sugar intake would affect your running a lot?
-For my first marathon I went without it for my entire training cycle and I think it helped big time.
