8 More Days

Only 8 days until I leave for Myrtle Beach! :) It will be so nice to just get away for a few days...HOPING the weather will be nice. But it will still be fun even if it's not!

My eating has been really good lately. I've been eating less grains than I used to (I eat 2 pieces of Ezekiel bread in the morning, and then either a whole wheat tortilla or bowl of Kashi cereal later in the day, usually for my post workout meal), and I've been eating more veggies than I ever have! Still need MORE, but I'm doing better than before! I've also been cutting back on dairy products-I just tried Almond milk for the first time the other day! It will take some getting used to, but it wasn't that bad. I'll probably still use skim milk in my post workout smoothie and still have my Carbmaster yogurt once a day or every other day.

I've been eating relatively healthy for years, at least compared to most people, but I have changed a LOT of things in just the past few months. I now eat almonds, natural peanut butter instead of regular, take fish oil supps, eat Omega 3 eggs EVERY day, started eating Ezekiel bread instead of regular whole wheat, recently switched to grass fed beef and chicken, not grain fed, took out things like deli meat and low sodium canned soup, and cut back on grain products, and also cut back on artificial sweeteners(I use Truvia in my coffee now instead of those pink packets)...and I'm sure there are some things I am forgetting! And I'm still workin on it!

It feels good knowing that I am mostly eating things that are natural; things that God created for us to eat, not man!! Lean meat, eggs, nuts, fruits and veggies make up the majority of what I eat. In addition to those things, I also have my protein shakes, Carbmaster yogurt from Kroger(low sugar, high protein, but it does have sucralose in it), and Kashi cereal.. I have a cheat meal once a week, which this week I have decided to make pasta, since I haven't had pasta in MONTHS! And probably with some garlic toast. :) yummmyyy!!!!

Anyway....today I did some sprints, which I do once a week. I did about 10 minutes of 15 second sprints at 11-12 mph on a 10% incline, followed by about a minute rest(or however long it took until my heart wasn't beating out of my chest!). I love love LOVE sprinting! I feel like my body was just made to sprint! Jogging at a slow pace is like torture to me, but sprints are fun!! :)

That's all for now...
