My weekend in pictures + five words or less…
Hola! Instead of breaking down my final week of half marathon training and writing about meal planning / prep yet again, I figured I’d update you list-style. Here’s a quick look at my week, along with all of the other random thoughts bopping around my brain on this Monday evening.
Well, it’s a little late to be writing my training plan for the week, given that we’re two days in, but here goes nothing! Though my shins held up (for the most part), the 11 mile long run totally kicked my butt. I cannot even imagine running 2.1 more miles…when I finished the run on Sunday I couldn’t even imagine taking one more step. 2.1 more miles. 11 days.
I can’t even lie: Last week was THE BEST EVER in terms of meal planning and preparation. Talk about life changing, our “big meals” are the best.
Cook twice. Eat EIGHT TIMES for each of us! It’s the greatest thing. All we had to do was double two of our favorite recipes (Sunday night and Monday night) and we didn’t even have to think about another meal until Thursday night. Greatest idea we’ve ever had. Fine. Greatest idea Zack’s ever had…he gets all the credit on this one.
My shins and I are still fighting. A lot. I’m choosing to stay positive and treat them as shin splints. Just the thought of the words stress fracture results in more tears than you could possibly imagine…
I mentioned last week that Zack and I are taking meal planning and preparation to the next level. Now that I’m back to work, we want to make weekday nights more automated and spend less time in the kitchen. Our solution? We’ve created a monthly meal plan, or a series of four weekly meal plans that will be repeated on a monthly basis.
After my last functional medicine appointment pity party, I’m back on the “happy to be on this journey!” bandwagon. One thing I cannot live without at this point is my own version of bulletproof coffee, which would not be complete without coconut oil, ghee, and my favorite immersion blender.
So, without further ado, I bring you my seventh “pegan pick” – Thrive Market Ghee!
