Ah sorry for my MIA, the last couple of days with food blogs. I have been a combination of sick and tired and just feeling a bit down due to my poor eating habits. I’m back on track although-we all have those weeks/weekends/months/years…decades might be a touch too much. Last night like I said, I went to bed really early, around 9pm. I was cuddled up watching a documentary about running with my boyfriend and basically fell asleep after that. I woke up really early today (around 6:45am and have already had a pretty productful day. It’s only 10:30am ha). I have been studying for my educational psychology class, doing some math homework, and cleaning up.
Did I mention that I dyed my hair on Friday night? Dark brown to be exact. It is a little bit too Megan Fox black/brown for my liking (which is crazy for me to say because I love the woman). Anyways-I would have preferred a little more rich chocolate brown. Sunday-I don’t wear makeup so this is me-makeup free. That rhymes. Darker or lighter? You tell me.
For breakfast today, my boyfriend and I made soda cakes. It is essentially pancakes but instead of water you use some form of soda. We actually just used flavored carbonated water today which was excellent. There is no need to have mountain dew pancakes at 9am. (This is my favorite soda hehe). The soda and carbonated water makes the pancakes much lighter and much more fluffy.
½ cup fiber one pancake mix
½ cup fiber one cereal (ground)
½ cup soda
¼ cup egg substitute (or 1 large egg)
4 tablespoons Hershey’s cocoa
Makes 2 servings.
I caught up on a little bit of work from 9-11 and then it was time for a lovely run. It is a beautiful day here in upstate New York (for once). I am working on hills to really train me for the next cross country race. I don’t have another race for an entire month. I’m excited because I think the next one will be good and my boyfriend is coming! He has never seen me run, so I’ll be sure to put in some extra effort.
I realized I haven’t really said too much about what I’m running. I posted a blog a few days ago that I’m running 30 hours in 28 days but that I haven’t said too much after that. Today I ran around a local high school trail and up and down a giant hill about 20 times. I come from a very flat area, and so hills are my weakest point and where I have been getting passed during races so that is my goal during these 30 hours. I need to incorporate as much hilly terrain as possible.
12:30pm: Lunch time- I made what I would like to dub a pizza wrap. I used 1 flatbread, 1 slice of provolone and cheddar cheese, turkey pepperonis, and salsa to make it. It was just what my body was craving. I also had a Greek god yogurt to add some calcium and to have some “dipping sauce.”
For swim team we have to teach swimming lessons so that our training trip to Puerto Rico is cheaper. At 2pm, I went to go teach my lesson. I quite enjoy the lessons and it is our way of fundraising. Our trip to Puerto Rico with food, hotel and airfare ends up costing us about 550 dollars per person. For an entire week, that is an incredible price, so I figure you cannot go wrong with swim lesson fund-raising even if it takes up more studying time.
3:30pm-I’m hungry again. Insert delicious snickers marathon bar. When will I ever get tired of your deliciousness and such good healthy stats? For one bar (150 cals) there are 10 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber. But wait there’s more! 60% of your daily amount of calcium…although your body cans really only use 50% of that. I could seriously be a sales person for these. (not pictured)
Well-I have my first morning practice of swimming season tomorrow-so I may make some hot chocolate and go to bed around 10.
Question for you-Do you prefer wraps or sandwiches better?
