Pain in the leg!

Last week during my track workout I pushed too hard. I didn’t think I pushed too hard until the next day, and the day after, and the day after… I really did a number on my quads. They were so sore I could barely lift up my legs. I had to use my arms to …

Long, wonderful weekend!

I had an amazing weekend with my daughter. We just hung out, shopped, and played with Mollie.  It was too hot to do anything strenuous so I will have to work out hard this week to make up for the break! This week I am going to continue to make progress with the juicing. I …

Day three of juicing

I made some tasty juice today… I added half of a lemon to the other veggies I have been using and I really liked the way it tasted. I will definitely add it to my recipe from now on.  I juiced 2 quarts and planned on drinking them both for lunch. I got down 1.5 …

Much better juice day!

The day started EARLY! I got up at 5:00, had a quick cup of coffee and was at the track just before 5:45AM. We had a great track workout that was inspired by an article I found about how fit World Cup Soccer referees have to be. The workout looked like this: 6 x 40 …

Juicing Day 1

I woke up excited to try my hand at juicing.  I had everything organized and I was ready to go. I started the day with my Super Nutrition Drink… YUMMY… this is some good stuff. The new greens powder is the best ever  and to top it off  the recipes calls for coconut oil. It …

In the groove

I am feeling pretty good this week with the exercise and food. Everything seems to be falling in place and coming easily. It is funny how some days/weeks are a struggle while others come naturally. I think I have more energy this week because I replenished my green drink supply and have been having a …

Another long day!

Today was a duplicate of yesterday except the run was harder! We did track work this morning which means I had to run “fast”. Note, I cannot help putting fast in parentheses because I feel kind of silly even saying that word in the same sentence as describing my running. But, I did run hard. …

Early to bed tonight!

Boy oh boy… 5:00am came early this morning. I was NOT ready for that alarm to go off – in fact, I think it went off for several seconds before I figured out what it was and why the heck it kept making that noise. Luckily I had a cup of Starbucks to look forward …

Something new!

I have been in a mood lately to try new things. Nothing too radical, but out of the ordinary. I am a creature of habit; I like to have a plan, a schedule, I like to know where I am going and what I am getting when I make something. I have decided to start …
