After my depressing/motivating post this morning I went to eat what I thought was a pre-workout snack but actually turned into my breakfast! I was going to go running with a friend this morning but after I ate my pre-workout snack he called in sick! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So it turned into my breakfast I guess! Good news though, I called him and he said he was felling better so we might go running later! ๐Ÿ˜€

Banana goodness!

My pre-workout breakfast consisted of

  • 1 slice of ย Dave’s Killer Bread
  • 1 tbs. Peanut Butter
  • 1/3 banana
  • little bit of honey
  • cinnamon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A few hours later I was hungry for lunch! So I whipped up a simple yet delicious meal! The fridge is basically empty right now but I put together what I could! Starring these tortillas as the inspiration:

Yummy Tortillas!

Inside the tortillas

  • herb roasted turkey
  • Yumm Sauce from Cafe Yumm
  • shredded carrots
  • sliced tomato

mmm!

On the side I had a very un-ripe nectarine and a few blueberries!! It was delicious and super filling!

Now I’m off to do some more studying for the 6 finals I have this semester before school is out! Yay Summer! Can’t wait!

I think Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls are in my near future! Thanks Julie! ๐Ÿ˜€ Can’t wait to try them!

Everything in moderation, right? ;D

Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday!

It has stopped me from experiencing so many amazing and beautiful things!!!ย I need to train my body to LOVE exercise and to LOVE eating healthy! I want to be HAPPY!! ย So I cam feel happy and free like this:I want to be able to live my life without worrying! Staying up late worrying about my weight and my life!!! I want to feel free to live the life I was meant to live!! ๐Ÿ˜€

So it starts today!! NO more unhappiness! No more body hate! NO more unhealthy food binges! NO more feeling sick about myself and the food I ate!! NO MORE NO MORE NO MORE!!!!!! I am ready to do what I can to become happier because I am worth it.

Hello everyone whoever is reading this!! ๐Ÿ˜€

hehe!! Thanks for stopping in!!

Currently my problem is running. For example: getting through simple runs to getting motivated to go out for a run and believing that I can’t run….

I used to want to run but for the past 2 months I have had no motivation. I think it is for the fact that I have no self-confidence and I don’t believe in myself enough that I can run!! I will go out for a run, be about 1.5 miles in and stop. I have no idea why I stop, I just do. I will tell myself that I will get through at least x distance and then I will stop around the 1-2 mile mark. I just stop, sometimes without even noticing. It’s becoming a habit, kind of! I just get BORED! I have tried different routes and routines to change it up but it seems to not be working! I am getting quite discouraged. I sometimes want to give up running because I feel like I can’t do it. But then I think of how far I have come with my running! I used to only be able to run for one minute and last summer is when I started to take running seriously! Now I can’t won’tย even hop on the treadmill or go out for a run any day of the week, well maybe once! I am always exhausted from a long day at school and the last thing i want to do is come home and go running! I need metal strength! I need confidence! I just don’t know where to get it!

I want to be able to look forward to my run but instead I look at it as a chore! I just can’t get into it but I want to soooo bad because there is something inside of me that loves to run…I just need to find it!!

I want to love running….but I just don’t know how…..

suggestions?

Question of the day:

Do you enjoy running? If so, why and how do you enjoy it?

Thanks for listening,

Julie
